I found a pair of these the other day (the pic below is from another site, linked to by the pic):

hulk hands

These are “Hulk Hands,” padded foam fists that you put your own hand inside, and then hit things with them. I found these the other day, and found myself remembering how much fun my oldest son and I had beating each other up with them. On the day we bought them (he was in his early teens), he showed them to me and said, “Look, it doesn’t hurt when you hit someone with them.”

I put one on, and then immediately punched him in the face with it.

“You’re right,” I said (as he stood there a bit stunned by the sudden assault), “we have to talk Mom into getting a couple pair of these.” It’s behavior like this that I suspect is responsible for my wife complaining that there are three teenage boys in the house, and not just two.
