A literal grounding

Me:  Son, you need to be good for the babysitter.  If not, you will get a punishment when I get home.

Son:  I don't think a punishment is going to work.

Me:  Oh?  What would work?

Son:  I think I should be grounded.

Me:  What does grounded mean?

Son:  (with a quizzical look)  You will put me in the ground??
