Joke of The Day

    One day, Mom was cleaning junior's room, and in the closet she found a
    bondage S+M magazine.  This was highly upsetting for her.  She hid the
    magazine until his father got home and showed it to him.  He looked at it
    and handed it back to her with out a word.
    She finally asked him, " Well what should we do about this?"
    Dad looked at her and said, "Well I don't think you should spank him."
