A Sorry Stick is a tool that is used to beat or scare a fluffy pony as a form of punishment. A sorry stick doesn't necessarily need to be a stick. Brooms, folded magazines, toy swords and other similar objects can be used with the same effect, as fluffies are pre-programmed to fear any sorry stick. An owner doesn't always need to beat a fluffy with the sorry-stick; simply displaying the stick can teach the fluffy a lesson. Owners who don't want to physically harm their fluffies can instead use a sorry-box to temporarily trap them inside a confined (and sometimes) dark place, but sometimes, both sorts of punishments are combined.
