My only genuine trepidation that if I start punching I may never stop.

But would you want to?

It's less a question of want than say, need.

For example, If I ever got hold of Adam Sandler I would never want to stop punching him in the face, but after my fists are a bloody pulp I will need to. To start kicking.

I have more graphic examples but they involve ben stiller and I suspect that they could be used against me as evidence at some point in the future. Let's just say it involves secretary birds, snakes and Frank Zappa.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

It's almost like You People have forgotten about the simple club.

On the contrary, simple things will work for most, but some people need creative examples made out of them.

The club is proven technology.  It does exactly what it says on the box, and it has no moving parts or other failure points.  You apply the club until the problem is solved, and you leave the mess for the janitor.;

I don't see why people have to get all creative over basic technical problems.

Club, it's an elegant weapon from a less civilized age.

I find this line of reasoning distasteful and tedious.

Let's be frank, we both know the technical and logistical benefits of the club. And Cosh. Or even the humble blackjack. That isn't the point with these kinds of cases. Hell, the romans didn't crucify every uppity jew, did they?. But sometimes, examples need to be made. Creative examples. Examples that let the rest of them know where the land lies and how shit is going to be. The club accomplishes this, yes, but it is literally a blunt tool. Special cases require special attention and methods.

And in these kinds of cases, where the holy name of comedy has been defiled beyond any kind of reasonable measure and sanity, I ask you: Is it not just that they should be staked upon the sands, covered in snakes that have been injected with meth and then introducing a flock of equally drugged secretary birds into the situation? Is there ever going to be a surer sign of the end of the worship of the redundant stupid times and full embrace on a societal level of the strange times?

The club is a social tool.  A community tool.  It helps us remain human in an increasingly technological world.  Had we stuck with the club as a means of behavior modification, this would be a far more pleasant world for you and I.

But that last paragraph, yeah, I can totally see that.

It is man's oldest tool for a reason.
