A Guide to the Domestic Correction of Young Gentlemen

The accompanying illustration is presented in the hope that it may be useful to households in which young adult men reside.  Gentlemen aged from around 19 to perhaps 35 are frequently in need of moderate physical correction, and given the taciturn nature of polite society on such matters, many are uncertain as to exactly how to proceed.

Readers are advised to click on the illustration to see it in its full size.  Of course for those without such a young man on the domestic scene, our cartoon can hope to rouse only a smile, but in luckier homes a thorough study of this diagram, along with frequent and thorough experimentation in how best to imitate it, provides a sure pathway to the most rewarding domestic bliss.
Readers who have tried and rely on this method are encouraged to respond and let us know of their success.


  1. Love your commentary and the vintage/retro style of this illo--awesome work as always.

  2. Thanks, Dave. I was going for a kind of Edwardian look/sound/feel, glad you got it, I'm never sure people are seeing what I'm seeing. Hope to try more of this technique in future, maybe trying to represent the cool men's clothes of that period.
