    Some people deserve to get a ‘letter’ now and then.

    Nothing to do with work gloves. The difference between no longer going with the somewhat sporting idea of boxing gloves (and rules) and ramping it up to a bare-knuckle brawl (no rules, no ref).

    Going medieval would also be archaic, I guess, by a thousand years or so, but it’s a meaningful expression.

    I have to admit in this case he deserves a bit of a slap.

    @simpsonfan2

    Or in this case, an entire message.

    I thought the gloves come off in a hockey game.

    Same idea as what TJDestry was describing. The difference between getting hit by a gloved hand and a bare fist.
    I’ve felt both; I’ll take the glove, thanks.

    And it’s usually “kid gloves.”

    Something of a switch for Lamont. He usually corrects grammatical errors or misused words. Doesn’t make sense that he would attack metaphors. Also, I’m with Richard Russel. Never interrupt a sentence that contains the phrase “tying him (her) up.”

    Lamont, in this case, deserves what’s coming to him.

    My sister used to work for a postmaster who went postal every time he heard the expression “going postal.”

    @K M

    He killed everybody in sight?
    Bet he didn’t get many complaints.

    @Gary McSpook

    My reference source is Louis L’Amour since he knew boxing and I don’t but he said that by protecting the hand boxing gloves allowed harder – sometimes fatal – hits. This is exactly the opposite of what one would expect and of what is implied.
