    Today's version is much more streamlined and made from stainless steel for easy cleanup and powered by a cordless drill for more SPH. (Sinners Per Hour)

    In fairness, it looks like it would crush Eastern Orthodox or even Protestant hands just as effectively.

    That's so incredibly horrible. I hope they didn't have to use them much.

    If they were still in use today, we probably wouldn't have any politicians.

    I'm sure we would still have politicians but they couldn't hold a pen to sign executive orders!

    When I read "SPH", I immediately thought about Six Penny Handley. I go to a Big Land Rover meet there each year in July.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    I think they had one of those at my catholic elementary school.
    They only used it on the left handed kids.
    Couldn't have kids writing left handed, crush them once, no problem anymore.
