More nagging wives!

A few weeks ago I posted about the village of Chiddingstone with its' Chiding stone for nagging wives. Well, here is how nagging wives are dealt with in Bermuda!


Gossip board

First they hang this board around their neck, just in case they are not sure of the accusation made against them!



Then they put them on the ducking stool. You can see where this is going can't you!

Then they duck them!

If they happen to voice any disagreement about the punishment, well then

they just duck them again!!

Seems like Bermuda wasn't the paradise it was cracked up to be :)
