The Punchy Proverbs…and Profiles

The Punchy P’s are here! Read carefully and pick a favorite (alt. favourite).

(1) Arm yourselves with faith and the greatest enemies of mankind are defeated. Namely, the Unknown.

(2) Cloak an insult in humor and you can get away with magnanimous amounts of verbal abuse.

(3) If you’ve told a lie, resolve this moment never to tell one again; of course, you’ve just failed.

~ Punchy Proverbs of the week

This professor would also like to announce that three new profiles were added to The Hut!

Definitely take a look:

Merlin.

Morgan.

Dr. Zauberer.

    #2.

    That is all.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2013 at 00:18

      Definitely is a good one. I do think this professor practices it quite often!

      • 3 Jennwith2ns July 31, 2013 at 00:21

        :-)

  2. 4 Jennifer July 30, 2013 at 06:33

    Tassie Devils Rock!! You did ask for … Anything …

    Not religious, but faith comes in many guises, I’m all for number 1. Too many people use number 2 in the wrong way, and number 3. Really?! People lie, I never knew, I have such a faith in the good side of people I just never see it. :-)

    • 5 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 11:22

      Absolutely! But you see, the professor uses #2 correctly all the time in his ripping reviews. :) Oh, people lie; but of course the professor doesn’t, you were right. He usually just stretches the truth.

      Ah, what do you mean by Tassie Devils Rock? Very curious now.

      • 6 Jennifer August 1, 2013 at 11:49

        Ok, some sarcasm there on my behalf.
        And the ‘rock’ thing. another way of saying something rules, is awesome, cool etc…

      • 7 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2013 at 11:53

        The professor sees. And I must say you’re right: The Tassie Devil is cool… :cool:

  3. 8 Angeline M July 30, 2013 at 05:12

    Definitely #2.

    • 9 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 11:20

      One can really identify with that, right?

  4. 10 The Dancing Rider July 30, 2013 at 03:27

    Hmmm, difficult choice. I lean toward #2. I guess that could be a fib, though, so #3 — shrug. #1 is interesting, but just can’t do the conventional religion thing. Though I like the sentiment. #2 it is!

    • 11 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 11:19

      There’s definitely something about #2. It appeals to the wicked side… :)

      • 12 The Dancing Rider July 30, 2013 at 13:01

        Smirk. That is definitely me some of the time.

    • 13 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 13:18

      Which can be a good thing…

  5. 14 krugthethinker July 30, 2013 at 02:13

    I love them all! But I would choose 3 because it’s simultaneously funny and sad, but also a poignant truth about us humans. Le sigh!

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 11:16

      Yes, I agree. But you must understand: It doesn’t pertain to this professor. ;)

  6. 16 MissTiffany July 29, 2013 at 17:51

    I immediately liked #1, but I’m feeling contrary today, and #2 is looking good.

    • 17 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 18:51

      I know. There’s something appealing about #2. It appeals to the mischievous side, doesn’t it?

      • 18 MissTiffany July 29, 2013 at 20:03

        Absolutely!

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 20:25

        I’m glad you agree! Though, you must understand, the professor is never mischievous; just playful.

      • 20 MissTiffany July 31, 2013 at 12:50

        I, on the other hand, am occasionally mischievous as well as playful. :p

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2013 at 13:29

        Hmm… I do like that combination better. Time to train!

  7. 22 L. Marie July 29, 2013 at 17:45

    Can I choose all three??? But if you insist on choosing only one, I’ll go with #1.

    • 23 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 18:50

      Yes, you can! The professor did himself.

      • 24 L. Marie July 30, 2013 at 17:59

        Good point!

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 18:09

        :D

  8. 26 Jackie July 29, 2013 at 15:12

    I’m sorry to say none of these really resonates with me so no favorites today! Also, I liked the profiles and marked them to reflect that. :-D

    • 27 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 15:46

      Manothunder, what a pity! Thanks for checking the profiles out!

      • 28 Jackie July 29, 2013 at 16:55

        I’m sorry, Professor! You’re very welcome. Manothunder – what an awesome word!

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 16:59

        Oh no, that’s absolutely fine! There are many times this professor doesn’t like Shondgrate’s proverbs too! He can be quite…weird.

        Yes, isn’t it just a splendid word? :D

  9. 30 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 13:27

    Well, since I never lie and wouldn’t dream of insulting anyone, then I suppose my favo(u)rite must be number 1. But I have to point out that mankind’s greatest fear might be the Unknown, but womankind’s greatest fear is a breakdown in the chocolate factory…

    :D Delighted to see your spelling’s improving. See? Even colonials can learn, given the right support! (OK, maybe no 2 is my favourite…)

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 13:37

      :lol: You mean FF’s greatest fear is a breakdown in the chocolate factory!

      I thought of you when I read #2… But,really, if it wasn’t for spell-check, I fear you wouldn’t be saying that about my spelling…

      Are you sure you don’t lie, just a bit? I can think of one specific time…

      • 32 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 13:48

        How dare you? When did I lie?? If you mean I lied about my stunning gorgeousness, that wasn’t lying – just poetic licence!!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 13:52

        Oh, no, not that. That’s supposedly true. But now I know you stretch the truth.

        I meant about it being hot in Scotland.

      • 34 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 15:22

        It was hot in Scotland! And I am stunningly gorgeous!

        (Stomps off in rage…)

        (But wait… :idea: … my heroine Morgan could help me find a way to get my own back…Wowawee!!)

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 15:51

        What you call hot, the professor’s calls beautiful weather…

        But Morgan isn’t stunningly gorgeous and you seem to identify with her… ;)

        You’re always teaching me more smileys.

      • 36 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 16:34

        I think Morgan sounds fairly stunningly gorgeous. I expect you’re just intimidated by her feminine superiority.

        One day, if you’re a really good boy (unlikely though that might be), I may tell you where I get the smileys – though I think I’ve used just about all of them now.

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 16:52

        If you think she’s gorgeous and you think the professor is gorgeous… Goodness, I really don’t want to know how you picture me… ;)

        I am a really good boy! Do tell!

      • 38 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 17:00

        After recent revelations, I picture you as cross between Darby and Bruce Willis… (just be thankful I didn’t say Arnie Sch…Sh… oh well, you know who I mean!)

        But you see, Holmes always regretted explaining something to Watson because Watson would reply ‘How absurdly simple!’ And if you were to call me absurdly simple…well, best not to think about it really! Anyway, I remain to be convinced that you’re a good boy…

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 17:05

        You do? :lol: :lol: You would laugh if you knew this professor’s connection with Sch…Sh. :D

        Yes, but wasn’t Watson really the dull one? So that means you called me dull…

        What could possibly make you think that the professor’s not a good boy???

      • 40 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 17:09

        Ooh! Ooh! I must know!!! OK, tell me your connection and I’ll tell you about the smileys!!! And I’ll even throw in forgiveness for calling my beloved Watson dull!!!

        (You know I prefer bad boys anyway…)

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 17:12

        What about for calling the professor dull?

      • 42 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 17:17

        I didn’t! I was comparing you to my dear hero Watson! It was a compliment!!

        Please, please, dear Chicky-Woot-Woot, please tell me about your connection with the well-oiled muscly one…

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 18:50

        The Sh… is in some way connected to the PL, though he mightn’t know it. That’s really all I can tell you. As of now, it must be hush-hush. But one day, all of the close PL Family Members will know!

      • 44 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 19:06

        Oh well, no smileys for you, then! :razz:

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 20:25

        That’s not very nice, O Punchy Member!

      • 46 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 19:32

        Is it that you’re his son? Or his father???

        Or is he Ruber’s real father?????

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 20:27

        Me? His father? His son? Goodness!

        No, no, no. We can have a good laugh over it in the future…maybe.

      • 48 FictionFan July 29, 2013 at 21:35

        I know…he’s going to make a guest appearance in Punchy Les Mis! Jean Valjean? Fantine?? Will he be singing???

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 23:42

        Fortunately not! His connection isn’t one the professor wants to brag about!

      • 50 FictionFan July 30, 2013 at 00:07

        OK I give up! I’m going to sulk now. :sad:

        On second thoughts, sulking’s boring! Think I’ll have an ice-lolly instead… :D

        (That’s it, isn’t it! You once stole Sh…’s popsicle!)

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2013 at 00:10

        You’re hilarious! You really are. :lol: One day, ye shall know!

  10. 52 JustDeb July 29, 2013 at 12:14

    I will go with #1. #2 is something my family does when we get together.

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 13:16

      I understand that! #2 is definitely employed often!

  11. 54 Susan P July 29, 2013 at 11:56

    Number two is certainly true. :)

    • 55 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2013 at 13:16

      Isn’t it though? I think the professor identifies with it…


Say something...anything...O Punchy Family!
