At the Gallows

Wes and Tony of Amazing Super Powers joke about piñatas in this cartoon, but then get serious:

Piñatas are brilliant. They are a PRESENT for EVERYONE that you hit with a STICK. Not much is better than that. In fact, ALL gifts should be given in a piñata. Sure, that means on Christmas morning your new Xbox might be smashed into a thousand pieces, but blame the folks at Microsoft who shipped a product that wasn’t piñata-proof (the true test of quality).

Have you ever been in charge of filling a piñata? Let me tell you, it’s a true test of character. Are you going to stuff it with the cheapest crap you can find or the most premium candy products? Maybe you’ll even slip some toys and glowsticks in there? Choose wisely, because in the end, what’s inside the piñata is a reflection of who YOU are on the inside, and it’s about to be smashed open for everyone to see.

When your piñata is opened, what will it say about you? This is a motto to live by.

Pinatas always disturb me. They are de rigueur for birthday parties here in New Mexico, which sets up the horrible scenario: Excited children, candy, a stick being swung by a blindfolded child. The Pinata opens, and kids rush in, heedless of the blindfolded kid with the stick. It's a recipe for disaster.
There's also the lesson of Pinatas: Good treats come from the cruel punishment of animals.
