In a lot of Asian countries, specifically China and the Philippines, making students kneel on frozen peas, corn, and rice is a popular form of punishment.

Source David and Charles Livingstone, Narrative of an Expedition to the Zambesi and its Tributaries; and of the Discovery of the Lakes Shirwa and Nyassa, 1858-1864 (London, 1865, p. 125)
Comments Caption: “Goree, or Slave-Stick.” Livingstone does not appear to describe this “slave stick,” but a French naval officer, in the Angola region in the late eighteenth century, describes how slave traders used “a forked branch which opens exactly to the size of a neck so the head can’t pass through it. The forked branch is pierced with two holes so that an iron pin comes across the neck of the slave … so that the smallest movement is sufficient to stop him and even to strangle him”. The term “Goree” refers to Goree Island (in present-day Senegal), from which French slavers transported captured Africans.
