Dad: Son, did you go outside without my permission again?
Son: (lying) No, Mom said--
Dad: *removes belt* You're about to be in a world of hurt!
Son: *starts crying even though he hasn't been hit yet*
Dad: Why are you crying? I haven't even hit you yet! But don't worry, i'm about to give you something to cry about.

...Not that that actually happened or anything...
