Speaker 1 (00:01):
Today's Daily Highlight from Elvis Duran in the Morning Show.

Speaker 2 (00:06):
How do you explain why you dream certain things?

Speaker 3 (00:09):
Oh?

Speaker 4 (00:09):
I wish there was a way to explain that.

Speaker 2 (00:10):
I have no idea.

Speaker 5 (00:12):
So I last night I had a dream. It was
actually a flashback when I was a kid, when I
I must have used a curse word from my mother
and she dragged me into the bathroom and she washed
my mouth out with soap. And I never really understood
how effective that was because now I you know, I cursed,

(00:34):
like to say it almost as much as Danielle, but almost.
Isn't that a weird punishment? Washing your kid's mouth with soap?

Speaker 1 (00:43):
Yeah?

Speaker 4 (00:44):
Yeah? But again is it effective?

Speaker 3 (00:47):
Then?

Speaker 2 (00:48):
Okay?

Speaker 5 (00:49):
No, it was, you know, for that moment, I mean
it was it was gross having soap in my mouth.

Speaker 2 (00:53):
Froggy. Did your mom ever do that for you to you, like,
wash your mouth? That was soap? My grim mind?

Speaker 6 (00:59):
Did I got a switch and a mouth washed out
with soap at the same time?

Speaker 2 (01:04):
Yeah?

Speaker 5 (01:05):
I don't know if they know what to switch. A
switch is they go out to the tree and pull
a limb off and beat you with it.

Speaker 2 (01:09):
Branch up a tree, a branch?

Speaker 3 (01:12):
Wow?

Speaker 5 (01:14):
Exactly? My swing used to be used to be connected
to that branch. Now you're hitting my ass with it?

Speaker 2 (01:19):
Correct?

Speaker 5 (01:20):
No, yeah, it was like a switch. They it was
so weird, like they never did that. I had never
had my parents like messed with their landscaping to punish me.
But but the soap in the mouth thing, I'm like,
if my mother, if she was alive right now, I'd
be like, Okay, let's talk this through. Was my mouth
that dirty? You felt that soap was going to cleanse

(01:43):
the cursing out of me. I don't understand how this works.

Speaker 2 (01:45):
I don't know.

Speaker 4 (01:47):
That seems like one of those things people just did
because their parents did it, and their parents did it.

Speaker 6 (01:51):
I can still taste it to this day. I could
still think about it and taste it.

Speaker 3 (01:55):
Oh.

Speaker 1 (01:56):
Really, I feel like we all have. Like I remember,
my mom tells me because my my grandfather was a
barber at one point and he had that bar that
leather barber belt that he would take his scissors and
he would like make sure they were sharp, and he
would use that if my mom got out of line,
and so that was like and she remember is cleaning
out the house when he passed away and going oh.

Speaker 7 (02:18):
Get rid of that.

Speaker 1 (02:20):
Belts there.

Speaker 2 (02:22):
I like his text.

Speaker 5 (02:23):
My sister got soap put in her mouth so much
she started to like the taste and would ask for
it for a snack. What her favorite was watermelon soap?

Speaker 2 (02:32):
Oh wow cool?

Speaker 5 (02:33):
Yeah, I don't know, it's just weird. Gandhi, did you
have any weird things your mom and dad would do?
Would just lock you in your room? And what would
they do when you were a menace like you are today?

Speaker 4 (02:42):
I mean, listen, I have Indian parents. They definitely spanked us,
like they would bite us up. I'm not sure to
this day that they still wouldn't try. I just let
it happen. Uh, But that was that was our biggest
the way that they would punish us all the time.
They said grounding was more torture for them. It's like,
now you're a home oh am, I gonna do with you.

Speaker 7 (03:00):
Go out.

Speaker 4 (03:03):
And go do your things.

Speaker 2 (03:04):
Yeah, you know what.

Speaker 5 (03:05):
We had this conversation several years ago and some people
were saying that their their mother would call them into
the kitchen yell at them for whatever, you know, heinous
crime they committed, put raw rice on the floor and
make them kneel on it.

Speaker 2 (03:20):
On their knees pikes.

Speaker 1 (03:22):
Isn't that like water torture type stuff?

Speaker 5 (03:24):
I don't know, it just it seems it seems it. Yeah,
but how much better is soap in your mouth? I mean,
get real, I don't know the weird things they used
to Like, my dad would just look at me. That's
all I needed.

Speaker 1 (03:35):
My dad would lift me up and I'd pee the floor.

Speaker 2 (03:39):
Jesus do we recreate that today? Because it was so big.

Speaker 1 (03:44):
You know, my dad was six foot you know whatever,
and it was a big dude. So if my mom
would like take you know, you don't know what always happened.
Dad gets home and then Mom's like, do you have
any idea what these kids did? And then the poor
dad would have to go, okay, I'll take care of it,
and then just lift me and I'd pee.

Speaker 5 (04:02):
And then if you're from an Italian household and people
are texting in your grandma would take you know, the
spoon out of the sauce and slap it upside your
head and then sauce would like splatter all.

Speaker 2 (04:11):
Over the room. Oh what are you gonna do? Anyway?

Speaker 5 (04:16):
So punishment, I don't know did kids get punished anymore?
Is that is that the old man question.

Speaker 4 (04:23):
No, the way people operate, it does not appear to
be any consequences.

Speaker 6 (04:29):
But I saw a this girl had to be twelve,
maybe maybe maybe eleven at the grocery store the other day.
She wanted something, the mom said no. She cursed to
her mother.

Speaker 1 (04:41):
Could you imagine?

Speaker 6 (04:42):
I can't imagine what happened, not even respond. I thought,
if that was me, I don't even I don't even
know what would have happened. But I really don't even
have any idea. But it wouldn't have happened.

Speaker 1 (04:52):
You know what I did once to suspense, or so
I tried to be He was throwing a tantrum in
Target when he was a kidd. He threw himself on
the floor. He's screaming. Yeah. So I was like, okay,
I'm gonna do so. I was very calm. They probably
had me on security lifting him up, throwing him over
my shoulder, screaming like a lunatic as he's walking out
of the door. Right, I was very calm. I put

(05:14):
him in his seat, buckled him in, and then we
close the door, and I go, I'm screaming like a
lunatic in the car. But I did it. In my
car once. I got in the car, so then nobody
heard me screaming like a lunatic.

Speaker 4 (05:29):
There you go, there you go, because people in right,
you're doing something wrong.

Speaker 5 (05:33):
Got their kid some cultures. My best friend, he was
his mom and dad were from Mexico. His mother would
take her shoe off and straight in the head with it.

Speaker 3 (05:45):
Oh.

Speaker 4 (05:46):
I got hit by a straight chonklow once because my
friend was getting it from her mom. She's Dominican. She
took that shoe off and threw it and it hit me.

Speaker 5 (05:52):
I was like, come on now, Oh, the people are texting. Oh,
the people are texting. This is so crazy. They would
my mom would sprinkle paprika on my mouth, on my tongue.

Speaker 2 (06:05):
Well, a lot of.

Speaker 5 (06:06):
People who said that they ate you know, they were
they were having their mouths washed out.

Speaker 2 (06:10):
Was opening. They liked it. They enjoyed the case. See
not effective. No, the kids like, yeah, I give me
the soap. I will tell you.

Speaker 5 (06:17):
We had a paddle in our house and it had
some sort of poem written on the side, like a
poem about slapping your child's ass with this paddle. I
don't know, and I knew where it was and if
ever I was acting up. I know my mom would say,
you know where you're going to get the paddle when
you get home. But I never got it, not once.

Speaker 1 (06:37):
They just had to threaten you with it.

Speaker 2 (06:39):
That's it.

Speaker 5 (06:40):
It's it's like having nuclear warheads. We're threatening we have them. Yeah,
we're not going to push the button, but we have them.
Let's hope it's always like that, shall we?

Speaker 2 (06:49):
Yeah? But the raw rice thing, oh, I think that
just hurts thinking about it. Yeah, like walk on these legos.

Speaker 1 (06:57):
Oh god, oh my gosh, oh legos give me nightmares
on the floor.

Speaker 2 (07:02):
Because I know it hurts so much.

Speaker 5 (07:04):
It is Earth Day and there are things you can do,
like stop wasting your leftovers, stop over using napkins when
you go to the grocery store, use reusable grocery bags.

Speaker 2 (07:15):
You know, these are the little things you can do.

Speaker 4 (07:19):
Today's a good day to pick up trash.

Speaker 3 (07:20):
Yeah.

Speaker 2 (07:21):
Yeah, if you see some trash, pick it up. Shane
is online nineteen. Let's see how he was punished as
a child. I'm so intrigued. Hello Shane, Hi, good morning.

Speaker 3 (07:33):
How you doing.

Speaker 2 (07:34):
I think I'm speaking for everyone. I think we're okay?
Are we okay? So your grandparents. What would they do
to you if you cursed?

Speaker 3 (07:44):
Oh my goodness, I would have one grandparent holding me
down in the chair and the other one dripping mustard
in my mouth, cursing or acting up. And literally it
took me forty years to finally try mustard again. And
I was so anti mustard. It was like Danielle with mail.
I was like, no, mustard, don't put it near me.

Speaker 2 (08:06):
It's true. I mean, they have no idea what they're doing.

Speaker 5 (08:09):
I mean, they're ruining your hot dog experience for life, right,
It's like this is they'll get.

Speaker 3 (08:14):
Them to start dogs, pretzels. Nothing, No mustard, no honey, mustard, nothing.

Speaker 2 (08:19):
So how are how are you and your mustard today? Shane?

Speaker 3 (08:23):
Well? I started, I started cooking, and I tried using
it with with pork and it turned out okay. And
then I just did it a few more times and
and now I mean I can't say I'll eat it
on its own, but like in a mixture or sauce,
I love it. Right.

Speaker 2 (08:41):
Isn't that weird?

Speaker 3 (08:42):
Though?

Speaker 5 (08:42):
Something from your childhood still affects you to this day?
All right, Shane, I'm with you. You know My thing is,
you know, if I got a little spanking here and
there to punish me. I still enjoy it. So I
don't know. I'm spanking is good for me? Is that
bad anyone? Everyone's looking at me like, I'm okay, shane An,
I stay, it's mustard season. Let's go to the ball game.

(09:04):
What's up, Scarvy?

Speaker 3 (09:05):
Well?

Speaker 2 (09:05):
I just want to know, is it is it true
that well?

Speaker 7 (09:08):
Who knows if they've done any surveys or any kind
of research as to whether the way that they dealt
with we got dealt with?

Speaker 2 (09:16):
You know what? For instance, moment, what question do you
want to ask you?

Speaker 7 (09:19):
So my mom used to chase me around the dining
room table and I used to be threatened with physical violence?

Speaker 5 (09:24):
Is that more effective? Physical violence? What do you mean
like a spanking? Or she bashed your face in back.

Speaker 2 (09:30):
She even installed the fear of God in me?

Speaker 7 (09:32):
So my question is is that more effective? Or is
it the putting people in time out?

Speaker 2 (09:37):
Kind of like the new way of doing things? I
don't know. I don't know. You're a parent, Danielle. Let's
ask you what do you think?

Speaker 3 (09:44):
I mean?

Speaker 1 (09:44):
We've never hit our kids. We've always used the time
out or you know, put them in a in their
room or grounded them or taken away their electronics. And
you know, I mean it seems like it's worked. I mean,
they're they're pretty. I mean, look, they are not perfect,
that's for damn sure, but I feel like they're you know,
they're okay kids. I mean, but the thing is, you know,

(10:08):
nowadays kids threaten you. They're like, oh, you're gonna hit us,
We're gonna call diifis like they know right away? You
think I'm kidding. I know people's kids who are threatened
all the time. If mom hits me, I'm gonna call you.
Oh they know, really they know nowadays you can't get
away with things.

Speaker 2 (10:25):
It's so weird that little Johnny now has an attorney
speed dial.

Speaker 4 (10:29):
I threatened my parents with that once. Yeah, me too,
And they were like, go right ahead, please call them
right now and you go live with some strangers. Let
me know how that works out.

Speaker 2 (10:38):
I was like, I'll call you never mind.

Speaker 1 (10:50):
Do you know what my mother used to do. She
used to pack my bag and she used to say,
I'm calling the bad girls home. And she used to
get on the phone and she used to go, yep,
come and get her. She'll be waiting on the poor
make me sit on the porch with my suitcase waiting
for the bad girls home. And then they wouldn't come, obviously,
And then she go, oh, they got busy. They're gonna
come another day.

Speaker 4 (11:08):
Yeah.

Speaker 5 (11:08):
Question, question, I got a question. Is the bad girls
home right down the road from the poor farm?

Speaker 2 (11:13):
Because I wasna home.

Speaker 5 (11:14):
If I don't stop spending my parents' money as a kid,
we're gonna have to move to the poor farm.

Speaker 2 (11:18):
And it's right up the street from the bad girls.
Think it might be right across the way.

Speaker 5 (11:22):
I don't know related they have adjoining road or something.

Speaker 2 (11:25):
I don't know.

Speaker 5 (11:27):
All right, the poor farm. We gotta move to the
poor farm, Okay, Dad,
