Sis forStocks

Stocks are an old punishment device that holds people in place by the head and hands, or the feet. Strictly speaking, stocks only hold the feet and a pillory holds the head and hands. Stocks were usually put in a public place, where the person being punished was humiliated. Passers-by were free to hurl abuse, rotten fruit or other filth at the person in the stocks.

Stocks rhymes with ...

Jock, Little Rock, Wok, Dock, Grandfather clock, Lock ... see all
