boss spanks secretary

posted by the Web-Ed on 02/11/2010

For our sixth example of secretary spanking, we return to Dan DeCarlo, who got us started on this back here. Broadly speaking, in our survey we have seen three types of secretary spanking: (1) Because of spelling errors or other mistakes; (2) On a false pretext employed just because the boss wants to spank her; (3) Where the secretary herself wants to be spanked. In this case, we have a type-2 secretary spanking. We suppose this type can't really be justified (in other words, we wouldn't try it in real life!), but as an example of "nudge-nudge, wink-wink, one-guy-to-another" humor it's acceptable if it can be pulled off as well as DeCarlo does here.

What we mean is that even though this secretary doesn't want to be spanked, and it's not her birthday (the false pretext), the reader (who doubtless wants to spank her as much as the boss does) is left with the feeling that it's o.k. to go ahead and turn her over his knee. Where's the harm? Yes, we know it's merely a rationalization, but there's something about the drawing, perhaps the lack of any real resistance from the secretary, that makes us feel it's all right to smile when we see this.

Here is an altered version of this cartoon, by whom we can't say. It could be the same artist who altered another DeCarlo cartoon here. It has been colorized, reversed (mirror-image), and best of all, the spanking is now on the bare bottom (something DeCarlo and the other artists couldn't have gotten away with back in the 50's). Interestingly, although the caption has been removed, DeCarlo's signature (DSD) has been preserved! Probably after reversing the drawing, the artist blanked out the reversed signature and then copied it back in its original form as a sign of respect for DeCarlo.

It also occurs to us now that since the man is wearing evening clothes instead of office attire, and since the setting looks more like a living room than an office, this may be an example of one of those "recycled" cartoons that originally had a different caption - perhaps this was an older husband spanking a younger wife. But we're going to go ahead and consider it secretary spanking anyway.
