Laughing Stocks by Umojar Laughing Stocks by Umojar
Here's another commish for :iconogbobbydee: featuring a scene that he wanted me to illustrate featuring 2 folks getting tickled in a Mark Twain-esque backdrop. Here's his caption for the pic:

"If teenage boys were caught kissing or 'taking advantage' of someones daughter, they were put in the town stocks and tied down, and their shoes and socks would be removed. Members of the town would randomly take turns tickling their feet with feathers and fingernails, on and off for an entire day. Sometime, the prisoners' feet would be painted with salt brine, and goats would be put to the task of licking it off, tickling the boys to near madness. The girls especially relished watching the boys having their feet licked, smiling with delight as they listened to their hysterics, begging helplessly for the goats to stop."

Hope you guys enjoy!

I think it was very useful to punish teenagers by this method. it is bad when young boy kisses yuong girl/ The boy must be punished. and in my opinion feet tickling is the best punishments for teenage boys. i wish this punishment will be used in modern times

Hello! I am here to leave a comment for dA's 11th birthday challenge!
I must say, reading the story behind this definitely made it take on a new feel for me. One of those things that appears to be lighthearted and comical, but has a slightly disturbing backstory to it...
Anywho, I love your style! It has a very stylistic simplicity to it, which is very pleasent to look at and drew my eye right away. And the goats are adorable! :D
