A DMK PRODUCTION
* Many thanks to Emlyn for his beautiful post titled "Only Good For Throwing." That post awakened some RL memories for me which ultimately inspired this scenario. Thanks, Em!
You have two sons, Dale is seven and Dirk is ten. Both boys are spanked if needed.
It is a beautiful late summer day and the boys are planning on holing up in the house with some video games but you have other ideas. You tell the boys to get outside and play. The boys seem to be enjoying themselves running around in the back yard.
You are pleased that your sons are out getting some fresh air, exercise and sun and go about your errands in the house. You have a large back yard and the boys are well aware that is where they are supposed to stay.
Dale and Dirk soon bore of their chase and note a large Osage Orange tree on your neighbor's property is dropping ripe fruit. The boys gather up a bunch of the fruits and get an idea.

You hear a lot of car horns from the busy street in front of your house and check out the commotion. Your sons are standing by the street (a place they are not supposed to be) and are throwing Osage Oranges at passing cars.
You immediately intervene and get your sons to the safety of the front porch and demand an explanation.
The boys deny that they were throwing the fruits "at" cars but instead they were throwing them "in front of" cars. (Dirk insists there is a difference.) Both Dale and Dirk said they liked the way the fruits "squished" when the cars ran over them. Neither boy has a good reason as to why they were standing by the busy street other than the obvious. Dale then reminds you that "you" told them to go outside and play and all they were doing was playing.
What happens next?
