Wait ... lately the Spiiiiiidermaaaaaan incident keeps getting characterized by Chemda as Keith being punished for "using his imagination" when for years the story has been that he was punished because he told his sister that he wasn't really her brother and had been sent to the family to try and save it because the family was fucked up. What kind of parent would let something that manipulative and anti-family slide as "innocent play"?

Obviously Keith's dad is a monster who can't be defended but, I mean, especially if you agree with Keith's hatred of "tricking" you have to take his mom's side on this particular case. Especially when you factor in that wooden spoon spankings are pretty much a joke - they're the least hurtful of all spankings because wooden spoons have a relatively large area for sweet FA mass. The sting dissipates pretty much immediately. If you were a kid in a spanking family you'd rather be spanked with a wooden spoon than pretty much anything else, including an open hand.

I've been Team Chemda with pretty much everything lately but this one thing I just don't jive with because it smacks of (awesome pun intended) re-writing history or something.
