This happens to be Heidita's favourite punishment. Please remind me to delete this post before she returns from holiday, about 12 days time, hehe, or I will be in the corner.

In Spain we say "de cara a la pared", and not "con cara a la pared", which sounds rather weird, since using "con" they should have said "con LA cara...".

Anyway, after that little modification, "(You are) punished with your faces facing the wall!" (more or less)
