Here we have Loki in the only mode where he is out of mischief. He actually takes delight at being yelled at. With new legislation that spanking in the home is illegal, he is probably going to take over completely. He will rip and eat what he likes where he likes.
Of course, the next logical step is for government and the judiciary to step in and make it illegal to yell at one’s kids or dogs, regardless. I can see a busy time for Welfare Officers, being called in for all sorts of matters that used to be sorted out shortly and sharply at home.
Why do people always have to go to extremes? Stricter legislation to prevent abuse of parental chastisement rights would have been the way to go, but no. Simply outlaw it. How ridiculous can you get?
Well, Drivers’ Licences have to be renewed tomorrow, so I’d better prepare to get up bright and early.
