It is a truth universally acknowledged that any Punchy in possession of a sum large enough to merit consideration, owes considerable dues to Punchy Murdoch and his son, Kirk.
~ a saying of Kirk’s
I believe an explanation is due here. I recently wrote a post about the Punchies that you may want to visit if you missed it. It explains the Punchies in some detail.
Kirk is the leader of the Punchies. Now, interestingly enough, the Punchies tend to be quite rebellious in nature—which proves vexing for Kirk. It makes his job as leader more challenging.
Punchy Murdoch is allegedly Kirk’s father, high commander of the Punchies, and the end of all knowledge and wisdom—at least that’s what the Punchies believe. The rebellious Punchies listen to Punchy Murdoch whose #1 command is for them to obey his son, Kirk. Hence, Punchy Murdoch affords Kirk his authority.
Punchy Murdoch has only appeared a very few times, and when he does, Kirk is not present. Punchy Murdoch is said to resemble Kirk strongly except for a long white beard that reaches nearly to his knees. Now you just may draw some specific conclusions from the fact that Punchy Murdoch and Kirk have never been seen together, and that they look similar, but please don’t jump to conclusions!
So, the above saying is Kirk’s way of informing the Punchies that they owe everything to his father, Punchy Murdoch, and to him. Some describe the Punchies as dull. A good description, I think.
I will share one proverb today, for otherwise this professor would feel cheap.
Okay, here it is:
Dealing with illogical people is like trying to swim across the ocean. Eventually you give up and die from exasperation.
I apologize for the irregularity of today’s post. If you have any questions regarding the Punchies, please ask!
