The Slice

Did you have these as a kid?

You know how it is. Some pint-sized cow poke comes into town and gets liquored up on red eye. A grizzled 6-year-old lawman has to take him into custody. Which is all well and good until the littlest cowboy gets cuffed and is led to believe that — “Oh, no!” — they won't come off.

There might not be crying in baseball. But detaining a freaked-out suspect with toy handcuffs was another matter.

I wonder if any kids ever played “The Defiant Ones.”
