Rubbish, have you seen the little buggers that the school system is turning out these days. Six cuts of the cane would do wonders for some of them (I also grew up in a boarding school). A little discipline mild sadism from the prefects was most effective in instilling respect.

I just checked, and not only is your "joke" highly offensive, it's also totally inaccurate.
I measured my slippers and both of them are 11.13 inches long, well short of a foot. And if they had a low coefficient of friction, they wouldn't work as slippers either.

If I would be my usual me, I'd answer : "Yes, I did. He was even asking me why I stabbed him with this butcher knife". but since this subject seems to touch a nerve on your side, I will simply pass on and not put more oil on the fire.
Not jokes: I have lost one than one friend in front of me. One died in my arms after an aneurysm, another died from a heart attack despite me doing CPR until the ambulance arrived. Another was shot during a battle with bandits in Hong Kong many years ago. He was telling jokes to cheer himself up and reassure us he was OK. He died at the hospital a couple of days later.
I can joke about death and am not offended by jokes about death - it is part of our lives we need to accept.
