Edition 4
————————————————————————————————————

Section A. Punchy Proverbs:

(1) A soft whisper is louder than a booming voice.

(2) Youth is like a knife; antiquity is like a club. (This one is from our dear Symphonist Sepperl; aka, deanthefish.)

(3) If indifference is stupidity, then difference is brilliance.

The third one really boggles the professor’s mind—yet I like it. Favorites, dear PLF?

““““““““““““

Section B. Two things you should know about the professor:

Fear for those who incur the professor’s wrath. (This really made me feel proud for some reason.)

The professor is always righter.

““““““““““““

Section C. What the PL’ers have to say:

(1) A party is open to everyone; for who would be rude enough to throw you out once you’re in? ~ Mr. Ratherquite to his Ladies

(2) I hate the pains of running a financially ruined country—but not enough to give up my kingship. ~ King Arthur

(3) Bellicose pundits don’t regret conflict. To compete, one must reciprocate. ~ Mark Malone

““““““““““““

Section D. Breaking News:

Mr. Magi is trying his hardest to start The Land’s Court, which would be responsible for keeping the peace and making collective decisions for the Punchy Lands. However, there has been some harsh opposition.

A supercomputer located on Fat Man Island, and supposedly capable of “monitoring” the Punchy Lands, has gone missing. The consequences could be disastrous if it ended up in the wrong hands.

Schwarz Tauptinker received a fortune from a formerly unknown uncle who just passed away.

“I bought a new car, and then…the money was just gone.” That is how Schwarz explained the disappearance of his money. Authorities are now investigating the matter. Mr. Magi used this as a reason why The Land’s Court would be a beneficial enterprise.

“But don’t worry,” Schwarz maintained. “I’m sure another uncle will die soon—even though I’d like to see an aunt die next. Must not have many of those.”

““““““““““““

Section E. Featured Story: Ruber’s Catering
by J. Freedwoppen

Serving dishes from countries and kingdoms all over the Punchy Lands, Ruber’s Catering is quickly becoming a favorite destination for the hungry locals and travelers. Many professional chefs have been brought in by savvy business man, Mortimer Butterfield.

“It’s great,” Ruber said. “I just manage the place now. The chefs cook, and the people are happy.”

The PLHO (Punchy Lands Health Organization) has just declared Ruber’s Catering a safe place to eat. Supposedly, the restaurant is very attractive and inviting.

Everyone should visit. No exceptions.

Just remember not to wear sandals. Lately, a few poisonous snakes have been spotted slithering around on the fresh carpets.

“I don’t understand where they came from,” Ruber said. “But we’re doing everything in our power to get rid of ‘em all. That’s for sure, eh?”

When Ruber’s father, Daddy Salami, was asked about the snake situation, he merely shrugged.

“I don’t know. Maybe the cur Ruber’s upset somebody? Maybe…he’s gone against what somebody told him? Maybe…his daddy is cranky?”

““““““““““““

Section F. Hearing from the PL Family

PL family, if you have any questions about the Punchy Lands, characters, or anything Punchy, feel free to comment below.
The Punchy Times principal reporter, J. Freedwoppen, would be more than glad to cover or investigate your query. (Make sure to clearly indicate your question for Mr. Freedwoppen.)

***

Last week, Lady Cheetah asked for some more information on Mr. Ratherquite and his Ladies.

Well, Lady Cheetah, interestingly enough, there isn’t too much info out there on Mr. R and his squad. Apparently, Mr. R studied medicine at a prestigious PL school, but unfortunately he didn’t finish his degree. Some assume he was “kicked out” of school. It is believed that he met up with the Ladies at a party and they’ve been together ever since.

Thanks for writing in,
~ J. Freedwoppen

    Snakes at Ruber’s! And just after it passed inspection?! Well, better than mice, I suppose. I suppose? I am trying to think of what would be worse? Wildebeasts? I hear they are deadly!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2013 at 13:12

      I think Daddy Salami was the one who put them there, personally. Oh dear yes! Those beasts would be horrible indeed.

  2. 3 Jennifer October 1, 2013 at 11:05

    I like your proverbs. Number 3 is perplexing but intriguing and workable. :-)

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 14:03

      Many thanks! #3 is definitely perplexing…I’m still trying to work it out.

  3. 5 Jackie September 30, 2013 at 20:55

    Punchalicious edition of the PL Times! Thank you muchly for keeping us informed of the comings, goings, and other tidbits in Punchy Land.

    Interesting reaction from Salami. Is Salami cranky cause his son is actually doing well at the moment? I guess he’s worried he will lose his slave if the restaurant continues to do well. I mean who will do EVERYTHING for him if Ruber can’t anymore. Salami doesn’t know anything about the snakes? Of course not! And it’s safe to let a fox watch over the chicken coop. :roll:

    Did I read right – you’re not feeling well?

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:01

      Thank you! (Love that word you coined!) The professor’s honor.

      Haha, exactly! I believe Salami is jealous of Ruber’s success. Now, why would anyone suspect DS? Personally, I think DS needs a strong hand.

      Yes, I’m afraid that’s so. The professor’s not feeling to well at all.

      • 7 Jackie September 30, 2013 at 22:09

        I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well! I hope you fell better soon. Here – have a cup of soup [_]b

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:53

        Thank you! Haha. It was excellent!

      • 9 Jackie September 30, 2013 at 23:54

        Glad you enjoyed it! Take good care of yourself. :-D

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:57

        I shall try! And thank you for the good wishes.

  4. 11 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 30, 2013 at 19:35

    Mr. Malone’s vibe continues to intrege me. I think he must like to dance.

    I will continue to stand next to King Aurthur. I appreciate at his loyalty fondly.

    What’s up with the cranky redhead, Daddy?

    Professor, I fear you are cranky today. Too bad chicken soup isn’t sold in Cashew City. If it was, it seems it would be a nice stress reliever. ;)

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 19:53

      Oh, I’m sure. I bet Malone is a much better dancer than the professor.

      Do you like King Arthur? He can be cranky sometimes.

      Personally, I think Salami is jealous of Ruber’s success. Doesn’t it seem that way?

      Why cranky? But it is true. The professor isn’t himself today. Not feeling too well. Chicken soup would be the thing, definitely.

      • 13 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 30, 2013 at 19:59

        It seems King Arthur isn’t giving up, I like that.

        Maybe I’ve misread Daddy Salami, perhaps I was mesmerized by his hair color.

        I pray the professor has someone to take care of him. A little TLC.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 21:56

        Oh yes, Arthur would never give up. You know that he’s a small guy?

        Well, Salami is usually good-natured, I think. But sometimes he’s cranky. Ruber has red hair too, you know.

        The professor has a single candle at his desk, and he’s quite alone.

      • 15 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 30, 2013 at 22:46

        I’m trying to read up on Punchy characters. It seems I have missed so much. Thank you for helping a girl out. I have a lot of Punchy catching up to do, haven’t I?

        You’ve set a romantic scene, do you always write in this manner? Or is it simply dark where you are.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:54

        Don’t worry about it! Not as much as you think. Within time, you’ll be a regular PL’er!

        No romance! The professor is like…Scrooge.

      • 17 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2013 at 00:00

        Haha. Okay, then. Settle down, Duke.

        I like Scrooge’s holiday.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 00:04

        :cool:

        I’ve never seen it…

      • 19 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2013 at 00:12

        Shocking! It seems you’re much too busy.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 14:00

        Well, the professor isn’t as busy as you might think.

      • 21 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2013 at 16:52

        Why? You have a lot happening here.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 17:30

        Do you think so?

      • 23 Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 1, 2013 at 19:14

        It seems.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 23:00

        Yes, I suppose you’re very right.

  5. 25 Susan P September 30, 2013 at 19:03

    “[(1) A soft whisper is louder than a booming voice”

    I agree with this. Especially if you are carrying a big stick.

    I’m inclined to think that the snakes in Ruber’s restaurant are there for the same reason live lobsters are in restaurants. Especially if they are rattle snakes, which I’ve been told is good eating.

    I have no idea what Malone is trying to say, but I think I like it! :D

    • 26 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 19:51

      I think I agree with it too, but I’m not sure. I’ll have to try it out first.

      Really? Rattle snakes are tasty? I’ll have to tell Ruber.

      It is a bit confusing. He’s a strange one, that Malone!

      • 27 Susan P September 30, 2013 at 19:59

        In my head, Malone looks like the old Marlboro cowboys.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 21:55

        Ha! I see why you say that. Do you like Malone, do you think?

      • 29 Susan P September 30, 2013 at 22:20

        Do I like Malone? I’d have to have a conversation with him before I could weigh in on that.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:53

        And he might be scared of you, since you’re so close with Pez…

      • 31 Susan P October 1, 2013 at 00:07

        A lot of people are afraid of me when they first meet me.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 14:00

        Ha, interesting. Same with Zez, you know. I wish I could say that was true for the professor.

      • 33 Susan P October 1, 2013 at 19:59

        You have to cultivate a Humphrey Bogart kind of atmosphere around you. ;)

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 23:03

        Now that is cool. Bogart was definitely the tough guy. I only wish the professor could!

      • 35 Susan P October 2, 2013 at 00:08

        Practice makes perfect. Besides, you go visit the PL. That takes all sorts of tough and cool.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 15:21

        That’s true… I’m sure that you’d get on very well in the PL–even better than the professor!

      • 37 Susan P October 2, 2013 at 16:36

        The PLers mightn’t fare so well. :D

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 17:27

        :lol: Oh dear!

      • 39 Susan P October 2, 2013 at 18:01
  6. 40 sonya solomonovich September 30, 2013 at 17:59

    I like all three proverbs! Number one reminds me of “speak softly and carry a big stick,” and the other two are indeed mindbogglingly fun.

    Well, thanks for keeping us updated, professor. I’m still not sure if I like this Mark Malone character. I see he doesn’t have his own character page… Is it because of the secret nature of his job? ;)

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 19:50

      Especially #3! And that’s why the professor likes it.

      Well…I could get him one…should I?

      • 42 sonya solomonovich September 30, 2013 at 23:48

        Yeah it would be interesting to see more info on this guy. So far he seems like a character from a hardboiled detective novel.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:56

        The professor shall work on getting one together!

  7. 44 ladycheetah7 September 30, 2013 at 17:55

    Numero uno is paradoxical and deep. Can’t say I think the same about #3. In my experience many assume their distinction to be brilliant, when in fact they have proven themselves to be legends in their own minds, which has caused me to run the opposite direction when I see them coming. Anywhoo, thanks Mr. F for confirming there is nothing to Mr. Ratherquite and his minions. He just reminds me of a socialite former manager I used to work for- an empty bone head…lol
    :-P

    • 45 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 19:50

      I like that: legends in their own minds.

      One day you may actually like Mr. R you know… The professor can’t believe he’ dumb…

      • 46 ladycheetah7 September 30, 2013 at 21:56

        Like.. I doubt that. ..lol

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:06

        :lol: Maybe the professor does too!

  8. 48 Anja September 30, 2013 at 17:34

    I absolutely love the 3rd proverb. I feel its ingenious. :)

    • 49 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:40

      I like it too. Even if it is a bit confusing…

      • 50 Anja September 30, 2013 at 17:43

        I think it makes perfect sense but maybe my mind is confusing.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:44

        Well, definitely not as confusing as the professor’s! If your mind is confusing how can you help order the professor’s unordered mind?

      • 52 Anja September 30, 2013 at 17:46

        Do you not see my blogs name is abstract ORGANIZED chaos. I have it all under control. :)

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:49

        I do like that name. It is awesome, but not professorish. Great!

      • 54 Anja September 30, 2013 at 17:51

        Well I am awesome so….

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 19:48

        A very good point.

      • 56 Anja September 30, 2013 at 21:44

        Just had to remind you…..what should happen in story 4?

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:05

        Of course. Surprise me! (Maybe the professor should kill someone?)

      • 58 Anja September 30, 2013 at 22:07

        ha I have been surprising you (ohhhh should I bring in a P&P character and allow the Professor to kill them?)

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:08

        Yes, you have! (Absolutely!!!!)

      • 60 Anja September 30, 2013 at 22:10

        (nooooooo….I can’t allow that. Although I could make the professor and Darby best friends.)

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:53

        Don’t do that, dadblameit!

      • 62 Anja October 1, 2013 at 00:18

        Hmmm I think that would be so much fun! Just think about it. You two could have a picnic, discuss world affairs…..

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 14:00

        I don’t like it. I’d have to murder him.

      • 64 Anja October 1, 2013 at 17:43

        Ha not nice as I tell my students

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 17:46

        Ah, your students must hate Darby as well. Very nice.

      • 66 Anja October 1, 2013 at 17:50

        If they know who he is I would be trilled. I do have some cool books in my room. :) poetry stuffs

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 18:58

        Was you mean. The professor has already murdered him. I like poetry but the professor can’t write it.

      • 68 Anja October 1, 2013 at 20:32

        Mean? When am I mean? I think you should try poetry

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 23:05

        You know, the professorish mind actually forgets why he was calling you mean. And you’re supposed to keep the dadblame mind ordered!!!

      • 70 Anja October 2, 2013 at 00:03

        I can keep your mind ordered but not your emotions! Are you firing me?

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 15:20

        Wouldn’t dream of it!

      • 72 Anja October 2, 2013 at 17:33

        Good because I am not sure how I collect unemployment from PL

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 17:38

        I’m not sure how either, interestingly enough.

      • 74 Anja October 2, 2013 at 17:51

        Then you can never fire me and all is well.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 17:59

        I agree. Never will.

  9. 76 Lesley September 30, 2013 at 17:15

    Mr Magi, all the best in getting support. Talk to everyone. And when you do, whisper. Don’t use a booming voice :)

    • 77 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:40

      :lol: Exactly right! I’ll be speaking with Mr. Magi Wednesday and I’ll send him your greetings!

      • 78 Lesley September 30, 2013 at 17:42

        Thank you professor! :)

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:43

        No problem! It will be awesome. I love when the PF asks questions!

      • 80 Lesley September 30, 2013 at 17:43

        :) :) :)

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:44

        :cool: Very good!

  10. 82 technophile9 September 30, 2013 at 15:11

    Favourite is Quote 3! Perhaps as I am a bit strange at times. :P
    Also, do you remember my question about how the Punchy Lands got its name? If not, I’d like to resubmit it. ;)

    • 83 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:39

      Well, the professor agrees with you!

      Yes I do! The professor doesn’t forget. I’ve actually scheduled that post for Wednesday–more in depth. I’ll have a nice chat with Mr. Magi about it. Is that fine? Both you and Lesley were curious!

      • 84 technophile9 September 30, 2013 at 20:27

        I’m sorry I doubted your memory! Better safe than curious though! ;)

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 21:59

        No, that’s fine! It’s good to doubt the professorish mind–I could have forgotten. Always remind if you want.

        You see, Anja is supposed to keep the professorish mind ordered, but sometimes she fails.

      • 86 technophile9 October 1, 2013 at 15:04

        Anja?

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 17:17

        Oh yes sorry. She’s PLF member. :)

  11. 88 Hazy September 30, 2013 at 14:19

    Section A: (3) – I like the sound of it, even if it boggles my hazy mind too

    Section B: Poor beings those will be. The professor’s wrath must be so wrathy! I pray I never incur it.

    Section C: (1) – Oh, Mr. R! tsk-tsk. He’s been thrown out quite a bit, hasn’t he? He never learns, eh? But I kinda like his gate-crashing ways. Oh, and studied medicine! (I finished pre-med but didn’t go to med) Mr. R piqued my curiosity even more now.

    Section D: Schwarz is lucky and unlucky all at once! How many dying rich uncles can one man have? :lol:

    Section E: Must eat there sometime soon! Which dish would you recommend, professor?

    • 89 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:38

      That’s exactly how I felt! Only, it boggled the professorish mind. See how alike we are?

      Oh don’t worry about. The professor is usually very sweet, you know.

      That’s really cool! The professor is really interested in medicine himself. I think Hazy likes Mr. R…

      :lol: I’m not sure! I think he’s wishing for an aunt now.

      I’m not sure yet! The professor has to try it, but I’ll let you know forthwith!

      • 90 Hazy October 1, 2013 at 15:32

        Yes, indeed! Does the alikeness seem boggling, too?

        Sweet! like strawberry j and blueberries. ;)

        Yes, I think Hazy is beginning to like Mr. R, too!

        Awesome! Please do.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 17:20

        No! It’s kind of neat, isn’t it?

        Well I’m not sure about that…

        Great! Only one supporter, though…

        I shall try to remember!

      • 92 Hazy October 2, 2013 at 13:24

        *nods* Super neat!

        I’m sure Mr. R will have more supporters, once others get to know him more. :)

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2013 at 15:24

        :cool:

        I bet you’re right. They just can’t see the goodness on the inside.

  12. 94 The Dancing Rider September 30, 2013 at 14:13

    Ha, ha, ha. I have so much on which to comment, no time atm. Off to horsey land! Will be back this p.m. with all my thoughts.

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:36

      Awesome! Have a great time, and the professor looks forward to your thoughts!

      • 96 The Dancing Rider September 30, 2013 at 20:56

        Proverbs: Oh, I like #2. But #3 intrigues me…and I like it as well. Perhaps because I don’t understand it. ;-)

        Section B: Erm, I will be careful not to incur the professor’s wrath! I’m a “don’t cross me” type, too. Of course you are always righter (which implies others *can* be right….)!

        Section C: Still guffawing over Mr. R’s contribution to this section. What the what? He and his … “ladies” … are thrown out more than they are in it seems. Next, I laughed so hard at King Arthur’s statement. Right, dear King. As for Mark Malone, yes, he would say that, given his occupation, wouldn’t he?!

        Section D: Oops, Mr. Magi. Someone must be feeling the NSA-tone of this venture, thus the missing computer.

        GAG on Ruber’s snake fest. Ugh. I think DS put them there…

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:05

        Yes, #3 is intriguing, but it’s hard to find the sense in it, isn’t it? You’re just like the professor!

        Very true. But the professor always knows what’s best for others… ;) (I added the wrath thing in there to make myself feel good.)

        Well, wouldn’t you throw Mr. R and the Ladies out too if they showed up at your party uninvited? The professor would! Ha, yes. Arthur–I still don’t feel bad for him! I think he would say that–would Mr. Malone. I’m still trying to make sense of it.

        Exactly! I think Mr. Magi will have his hands full trying to accomplish this task, definitely!

        I think he did, too. But I’m not sure Ruber didn’t deserve it.

      • 98 The Dancing Rider September 30, 2013 at 22:15

        Why, yes. Mr. Ratherquite does appear to show up at ALL parties, I am thinking probably almost always uninvited.

        Ruber may have deserved it, true. He’s certainly no angel.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:53

        Yes, I would agree.

        No, that’s for sure. But he is an interest.

    No 1 – sounds very oriental.

    The Professor has made a typing error in Section B – that should read ‘FF is always righter.’

    Is Mark Malone that old fool Shnodgrate in disguise?

    Is it a (red) Jag??

    I’m sure Ruber could make something tasty out of snakes…

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:36

      :lol: Does it?

      I thought FF was always right. Of course that means the professor must always be righter.

      Definitely not! That makes a lot of sense once you know what the words mean. Malone is charming, you know. You should eat at Ruber’s Catering with him one day.

      Schwarz’s car? Heck no. He probably bought something really ugly. (A jag is close, though.)

      I’m sure too.

      • 102 FictionFan September 30, 2013 at 20:18

        Definitely – very Zen!

        Well, you’re right that FF is always right – therefore when FF says FF is always righter, she must be right. Right?

        Much though I’d love to dine with MM2, I think I might wait till the snake invasion is resolved…

        With Schwarzy by my side, I’d even be willing to put up with a Vette…

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 21:58

        :lol: But you’re not right…

        True, unless the professor is righter at the time–which he is. This professorish brain if full of wisdom that you would be wise to heed, dear FEF.

        Not a snake fan, I suppose?

        Oh no, Schwarz would probably have some kind of truck. Only the professor has a Vette.

      • 104 FictionFan September 30, 2013 at 22:53

        I always heed the Professor’s wisdom, even when he’s not right…

        Well, if it came to a choice between a snake and a moth, I’m not sure what I’d do…run, probably!

        But you’d lend Schwarz the Vette for our first date, wouldn’t you, sweet C-W-W? You wouldn’t let poor FF turn up at Ruber’s Catering in a lorry…

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 23:55

        And when the professor’s not right, he’s righter.

        As a pet? I think I’d pick a snake.

        I thought you didn’t like Vettes… A lorry? Hmm…reminds me of The Who.

      • 106 FictionFan October 1, 2013 at 00:19

        I’d rather have a Jag, but if the choice is a Vette or a lorry – I’ll just have to make do. The Who?? Did you do a history course on ancient rock musicians, by any chance?

        So sorry to hear you’re not feeling well – hope you’re better soon! :)

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 14:01

        No, not at all. It’s sort of strange that you think Pink Floyd and The Who are old. What do they play over there on the radio?

        Thank you, FEF! :)

      • 108 FictionFan October 1, 2013 at 15:47

        I almost never listen to the radio… but they are ancient. I once saw The Who live back around 19umpty3, when I was about 14, and I think they were already a bit past it then…

        I’m beginning to suspect the Professor is an ageless time-traveller…

        Hope you’re feeling better… :)

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 17:22

        Who would have thought FEF’s a Who fan! Umpty is either an 8 or 9, and I think it’s the former…

        Yes, exactly!

        Sad to report, only a bit, bits, and little bits. But the professor shall rally!

      • 110 FictionFan October 1, 2013 at 19:11

        I wouldn’t go so far as to call me a ‘fan’ really. I was young…it was an all-day open-air concert with loads of bands…the sun was shining…but they were good.The Professor is always right…isn’t he? ;)

        Rally soon! Tuppence and I are sending positive thoughts. (Tommy would too, but it would interrupt his 20-hour snoozathon.)

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke October 1, 2013 at 22:59

        The professor would have found it hard just sitting in the sun. I think I would have harassed the camera crew or something like that. No, the professor is always righter, FEF is always right.

        Thank you! And the professor appreciates the positive thoughts. :lol: I would have never thought he was a snoozer!

      • 112 Jazzy Couldren September 30, 2013 at 21:11

        I doesn’t like this MM2 stuff… I’s gonna get angry…and when I get angry, I get crazy…

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 22:05

        Get angry, then, if you must. MM2 is one of your wildest supporters, you know.

      • 114 FictionFan October 1, 2013 at 00:21

        But JC is MM1 – MM2 is only MM2! (Even if he does sound like a gorgeous hunk…)

    I like both #1 and #3. don’t know if I could pick. With children, especially, a soft whisper has more of an effect that a yell. Loud booms just show what an idiot you are…that is most of what they convey. I also think the brilliance of difference is what defines genius. It is also what truly moves the world into motion from the social perspective..

    • 116 Professor VJ Duke September 30, 2013 at 17:34

      Oh yes you can! #3 is by far better–and you know it, dadblameit!

      Very well put. I don’t think the professor could have explained the third one that well. Thank you!
