    And just to show that Dad is incorrect, notice that I am being very adult in my behavior and questions.

    Naturally, all of John’s witty remarks to Michael, meant in a spirit of fun, are being misconstrued by others…as well as Michael…and making him appear to be a very poor father. If this keeps up, Michael will be removed from his home while his father is investigated.

    You are quite right-IF he said it in today’s world. But he didn’t. People were much more relaxed in the 60’s and this would have been recognized as a joke. Mike would not be traumatized by it.

    This is actually supposed to be in the 80’s, but you’re right. It was before the PC 90’s when everyone got hypersensitive.

    I mess with my kids all the time and they think it’s funny. Of course, it’s obviously lighthearted and ridiculous, and not demeaning.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Yes, we did say it meant “untrained,” but before he boarded the plane, we told him the truth!

    Since he is Canadian it would be University of Manitoba.

    Oh come on it was a little joke. If every parent who teased their kid had them removed from the home no parent would raise a kid. The parent just needs to tell the kid they were joking if the kid takes them seriously.
