The PL Times, E7

The PL Times
The Official Punchy Lands’ Newspaper
Monday, October 21, 2013
Edition 7

Section A. Punchy Proverbs:

(1) A decision made in anger is no decision at all.

(2) If we consider the world fairly, we find an appalling lack of prodigious minds.

(3) Sometimes I wonder how this world has survived for this long, and then I remember that my time on this planet has been rather short.

Favorites, PF? Remember, V. Shnodgrate writes the proverbs, so interpret the proverbs (especially #3) accordingly.


Section B. Something you should know about the professor:

The professor never considers the unthinkable; he only dwells on it.


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

Sometimes I do–even when I don’t want to. This is how everyone should be. Oh yeah! ~ Schwarz Tauptinker


Section D. Breaking News in the PL:

Fats Henry bought a very large zeppelin from A. Furber.

Mortimer Butterfield opened up five more factories.

Prince John, King of Scotland, suddenly–and unexpectedly–declared independence from England. Arthur, England’s tyrant king, says war is imminent.


Section E. Featured Story: Cashew City–Revisited
by J. Freedwoppen

PL’ers are usually in the mood for a nut–a cashew nut to be precise.

And there’s only one place to get an adequate cashew nut: Cashew City.

Up to this point, there has only been one Cashew City, but rumors state that more are supposed to open throughout the land.

“I don’t want one near England,” Arthur complained, “I don’t like nuts, and I don’t like cashew nuts.”

But it’s doubtful Arthur will ever have to worry about it.

Since England is stranded in a dark age, most businesses steer clear–which is just what the king wants.

“The peasants have Ruber’s Catering if they want…a snack,” King Arthur said.


Section F. (New) From the professor:

I would rather own a Tassie Devil than a cat.

This professor bets a Tassie Devil could beat a bear in the ring.

Sometimes I wonder if there is one unrippable book. Is there? I didn’t think so.


Section G. 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.)

Until next time, this is the PL Times!

    PS, I am very intrigued by this zeppelin…

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 25, 2013 at 13:52

      It is an interest! But it’s definitely something that Mr. Henry would buy. Fits his type, I think.

  2. 3 krugthethinker October 25, 2013 at 04:47

    A good question! It seems to me that mankind os varied enough that a ripping of just about anything should be possible. I have books that are dear to my heart that I know others would happily rip. And I’d even laugh a little! Because when you love a book, you love it warts and all;)

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 25, 2013 at 13:51

      That’s so true!!!! The professor has many books just like that, too!

  3. 5 Hazy October 22, 2013 at 12:28

    I like (3) and (1) but a little confused with (1)

    Sometimes I do even when I don’t want to too. Schawrz makes a good point.

    I wonder what Fats is thinking to do with the zeppllin… What kind of new factories did Mr. Butterfield open? Maybe the war would only last a few days… or hours, perhaps. Maybe that’d be a punchyish timeframe.

    Has King A even tried eating cashew? If not, then he’s missing out on something yum. :D

    Cats kinda scare me, I try to steer clear of them (except ninja cats, but admittedly, they can be terrifying when provoked). I don’t doubt Tassie devils can give bears a run for their money; they’re such feisty little marsupials! (and adorable when not baring their sharp teeth)

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:32

      Yes, Lady Cheetah brought up a good point where #1 is concerned, and this professor agrees with her.

      :lol: In a strange way!

      Henry probably bought one in order to “wow” the surrounding PL’ers. Bud Parker, his assistant, isn’t happy though. It means more work, I hear.

      All CIO (Cookies and Ice Cream) factories–which is a good thing.

      That’s exactly what I think! (Maybe we should get Weatherly to sneak some in to him while he’s asleep.)

      I’m so glad you like them, too! Yes, cats are scary. Even David Bowie thinks so. It’s in the eyes I think. (Weatherly’s a great guy–no need to fear him!)

      • 7 Hazy October 23, 2013 at 12:52

        CIO sounds yum. Any popular flavors?

        (Sounds like a plan! Weatherly likes sneaking)

        I think so too. There’s something about their stare.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 13:21

        Yes, chocolate. That always seems so popular.



  4. 9 Jackie October 22, 2013 at 00:22

    Professor before I comment on the post I would like to offer my sincerest apologies. Your comment from this morning ended up going to my spam folder which I did not check until this afternoon.

    As for this edition of the PL Times – On the one hand – I’m not really feeling the quotes this week – not sure why. On the other – wowawee! I admit I’m very happy to hear about Cashew City’s expansion. Wonderful punchalicious news! 8-)

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:30

      No problem. That’s been happening with the professor. Thus, I haven’t been commenting on other blogs too much. Trying to resolve the issue at this end. I’m actually sorry.

      Because they’re odd, definitely! Thank you! (Love that word!!!!)

  5. 11 deanthefish October 22, 2013 at 00:08

    The third proverb touches the realm of brilliance, section B frolics there.

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:29

      :lol: Mr. Fish, you always amaze me.

  6. 13 sonya solomonovich October 21, 2013 at 23:38

    Proverb #3 is very funny. Is Shnodgrate implying that he himself is the cause of chaos and destruction?

    • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:28

      I think he’s implying how important he is. But it might have backfired. What do you think of the fellow?

      • 15 sonya solomonovich October 22, 2013 at 18:29

        I’m sorry to say I don’t have a very high opinion of him. I believe he is a snob but maybe there is more to his personality…. Perhaps Napoleon could challenge him to a drinking contest and then we could find out more?

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 22:49

        Interesting! Should the professor set it up?

      • 17 sonya solomonovich October 23, 2013 at 06:05

        Oh yes C-W-W!

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 12:48

        Awesome! The professor loves when you suggest things. I feel so lost sometimes.

  7. 19 Anja October 21, 2013 at 22:03

    I love #2 but not sure I completely agree with it….I see some incredible minds in places people would never choose to look….or shall I say overlook. Why are you picking on cats?

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:26

      Really? Where exactly? The professor is an unromantic mind, I think.

      I’m not. Tassie Devils are way more powerful and professorish, aren’t they?

      • 21 Anja October 22, 2013 at 16:30

        Where? I see it daily. And no the professor isn’t if an unromantic mind…maybe just stubborn in agreeing.
        I love cats.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 17:47

        The professor is always righter, remember.

        No, you don’t–and you like devils better.

      • 23 Anja October 23, 2013 at 00:37

        Is this reverse psychology?

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 12:45

        Something like that. I hope it’s working.

      • 25 Anja October 23, 2013 at 13:42

        Yes, it is most definitely not.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 15:06

        Now I’m confused.

      • 27 Anja October 23, 2013 at 15:35


      • 28 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 21:32

        *professor humbug*

      • 29 Anja October 23, 2013 at 21:58

        tisk tisk

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 22:02

        *humdingers abound*

      • 31 Anja October 23, 2013 at 22:03

        *shakes head*

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 22:05

        *double shakes head*

      • 33 Anja October 23, 2013 at 22:06

        *crosses arms and snickers at you*

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 22:07

        *calls the Tassie devils to arms*

      • 35 Anja October 23, 2013 at 22:09

        *fills many bowls with treats for the tassies to eat and like me*

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 22:09

        Not the professor’s devils!

      • 37 Anja October 23, 2013 at 22:14

        Oh yes….I have a way with all animals…even the professors devils!!!!!

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 01:36

        Oh no no no!

      • 39 Anja October 24, 2013 at 01:41

        ha yes yes yes……

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 13:35

        I give up.

      • 41 Anja October 24, 2013 at 17:25

        I win

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 18:10

        Which means you lose.

      • 43 Anja October 24, 2013 at 18:54

        No I win

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 23:07

        The professor always loses.

      • 45 Anja October 25, 2013 at 00:22

        ahhh I will let you win this time

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke October 25, 2013 at 13:45


  8. 47 technophile9 October 21, 2013 at 20:07

    I don’t fully understand proverb three, but it’s by far my favourite.

    Also not sure what Schwarz meant exactly, but interesting…

    I haven’t heard of these Tassie Devils. Do you mean Tasmanian devils. :)

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 20:12

      It’s an interest, isn’t it? I think Shnodgrate is just trumpeting how important he is.

      Schwarz is dull, I fear. I bet he didn’t mean anything.

      Yes! Don’t you think them glorious?

  9. 49 ladycheetah7 October 21, 2013 at 15:59

    #1- Meh. I respectfully disagree; #2 – hilarious, and #3 – winner, winner chicken dinner.
    The fact that Mortimer opened up five more factories is hilarious, especially since no one gets it. Good chuckle for the day.

    • 50 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:37

      Interesting! Why? (The professor could see how this could go the other way.) I knew you’d love #2. It’s a beauty. Haha. But I’m not sure I believe Shnodgrate there.

      It is strange. Mortimer just keeps opening and opening…

      • 51 ladycheetah7 October 21, 2013 at 16:56

        For #1, I believe emotions affect the decision but it doesn’t negate it. I can make a decision in anger and the repercussions would be far worse than If I make one cool and level headed.

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:59

        That’s a very good point, Lady. You always have good points. But I think that you’re always cool and level headed–even when angered. Just the impression the professor gets.

      • 53 ladycheetah7 October 21, 2013 at 17:24

        I work with a grown man married with kids who puts up a hissy fit when I reject his unwarranted attention. Must keep a cool head otherwise I might fuel his secret delusion that I should show him interest

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 18:22

        Goodness me! See? You should get a Tassie Devil to chase him away.

      • 55 ladycheetah7 October 21, 2013 at 18:35

        After manager intervention he has backed off. Such a mut. First class wanker. Anywhoo, if you have a Tassie devil to spare send him my way. I’d send him on him even unprovoked.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 20:05

        :lol: I think the brute deserves it!

  10. 57 Susan P October 21, 2013 at 14:33

    I really want to know for what Fats Henry bought a zeppelin. It wasn’t Led Zeppelin, was it?

    The Professor dwells in the unthinking? Is that a ship’s name?

    • 58 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:31

      :lol: That would be horrible if it came with a Robert Plant. Well, I suppose since Henry lives on Fat Man Island he needs some machine that is capable of flying. Why a zeppelin…I’m not sure. Keith Moon really came up with a nice name for the band, didn’t he?

      Ooo, sounds like a great one. Haha. But you should have known this about the professor.

      • 59 Susan P October 21, 2013 at 16:34

        Ah, but the Professor is so tricksy sometimes.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:38

        The professor is quite normal, if a bit strange, you know.

      • 61 Susan P October 21, 2013 at 16:35

        Also, why does the Professor not groove with the kitty cats?

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:38

        Aren’t Tassie Devils…cooler? More vicious and more professorish?

  11. 63 FictionFan October 21, 2013 at 13:34

    Shnoddy’s lost it again, I fear, but I’ll go with No. 1.

    The Professor seems to have mislaid it a little too…

    Thank goodness for Schwarzy – sense at last!!

    Och! Hoots, mon!! I feel a song coming on…

    “Scots wha hae wi Wallace bled
    Scots wham Bruce has aften led
    Welcome tae yer gory bed
    Or tae victory…”


    (Oh, I do beg your pardon!)

    King Arthur’s not going to be so keen on cashews once the Scots have finished developing the massive and supremely accurate cashew catapult, I suspect…

    Poor Bob!! Tuppence is shocked :shock: And yes, many!

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:29

      Now, now! Don’t go insulting Shnodgrate–as is your wont. (Neat name, isn’t it?)

      Well, that happens quite often, we know.

      Senese? That’s one thing Schwarz could never be accused of having.

      I think it’s a cute song, but I’m not sure that Bruce is the correct word, is it? Who’s Wallace?

      Well, I hope FEF’s design works well too.

      Tassie Devils are glorious. Aren’t they? (I bet you couldn’t name one the professor couldn’t rip!)

      • 65 FictionFan October 21, 2013 at 17:25

        A rather frightening name…since if you rearrange the letters you get ‘the dragons’…

        Yes, we know…

        It’s just that Schwarzy’s so deep only special people really understand him.

        Who’s Wallace!?!?!??? That does it – I’m going to find a book on Scottish history and force the Professor to read it!! Have you never seen Braveheart?

        “Now’s the day an’ now’s the hour
        See the front o’ battle lour
        See approach King Arthur’s power
        Chains and slaverie…”

        We’re also making an extra-deadly one out of chocolate covered cashews – first they’ll bash Arthur on the head and then melt over him…gruesome (but also quite tasty).

        They’re not as glorious as cats, though – and not nearly as vicious as some cats I could name…

        The Horse and His Boy.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 18:26

        You do? How’s that possible? I really don’t know.

        And FEF is definitely special.

        Mike Wallace? No, I haven’t. I have listened to the sound track, though. The professor always confuses that movie with Dragon Heart, I think it is. Should I see it? Mel Gibson is hilarious.

        FEF should write poetry!

        This is your gnome tendency coming out, I think.

        Oh yes they are, dadblameit! A devil would wipe the floor with anyone or thing!

        :lol: How did you remember that? How? I forgot I told you, in truth. Well… Well… Well… Dadblameit.

      • 67 FictionFan October 21, 2013 at 19:40

        Tchah! You colonials!! Mike Wallace, forsooth! (Who’s Mike Wallace?) You’re just jealous you don’t have any great legendary heroes like our William Wallace! If you’re not careful, I’ll tell you allllll about him…!

        :lol: It’s a song – not my own. Called ‘Scots Wha Hae’ about how we beat the English (700 years ago). It seemed appropriate…

        I thought it was quite kind of us – providing a final taste of chocolate just before a horrible death.

        Right! Your Tassie devil v Tuppence! She could beat him with one paw tied behind her back!

        :lol: Bet you can’t rip it though!

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 20:08

        Mike Wallace? A betrayer. The professor is a legendary hero, I’m sure. (That’s not really a threat, since the professor would probably like to know.)

        Such bitterness. I think the writing of victory songs is very inappropriate. :lol:

        Hmm…Prince John is nicer than that.

        I’m afraid nothing can beat a Tassie Devil. (There’s debate on if the professor could.)

        Oh, I could–probably.

      • 69 FictionFan October 21, 2013 at 22:54

        Who did he betray? Oh, of course the Professor is – my sincerest apologies! I quite forgot for a moment!

        WW was a commoner who rallied the Scots and led them to a glorious victory against ‘Proud Edward’s Army’ (Boo! Hiss!!) at the Battle of Stirling Bridge (only a few miles from here) in 1297. Later he was betrayed, and captured by the English who, in their usual rather charming way, had him hanged, drawn and quartered and stuck his head on a spike. Gotta just love those English, eh? ;)

        Hmm…isn’t Prince John English? (See above.)

        Ooh, I think the Professor should definitely fight one!

        Don’t – no-one should rip loved books…

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:28

        The Steelers. I think you’re laughing me to scorn.

        I really do love history. You’re that close to Stirling Bridge? How awesome is this? The professor will just have to visit one day. Also would want to see that funny lake monster.

        I think he is. Either Arthur sent him there, or he’s a different Prince John.

        And die.

        You’re challenging the professor now.

      • 71 FictionFan October 22, 2013 at 14:11

        Who are The Steelers? (This could go on for a very long time…) Me? As if I would…

        Well, Scotland is just full of history – in fact, it’s the thing we have most of! And there aren’t too many places that are more than a few miles form some battlefield or another…those dadblamed English! But if you do visit, I’d strongly advise you not to call Nessie ‘that funny lake monster’ to her face…

        How’s the war going? Have we won yet?

        I reckon the Professor would win…

        Oh no I’m not!!

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 14:43

        An NFL team. I’m sorry for confusing you. It’s the professorish mind, definitely. I think you might. And I think you (and BigSister) do at times. Imagine being called a rat!

        Battlefields are coolio! Have you seen her? Neat!

        Nothing’s commenced. Mr. Magi is trying to patch things up.

        Really? Isn’t the professor proud?

        Oh yes you are! The professor maintains that he can rip any book–even his beloved ones!

      • 73 FictionFan October 22, 2013 at 15:34

        So the story so far (I think) is that Mark Wallace betrayed The Steelers? Or was it Mike? Or did the Steelers betray him? Or did the Red Sox betray the Patriots? It’s all becoming much clearer though…

        Don’t blame me for BigSister – I am not my sister’s keeper, you know! But I’m sure we meant it affectionately..

        No, she’s very shy.

        Tell that interfering old busybody to butt out, would you? We want WAR!

        No-one could stand up to the Samurai Rat!

        Can does not equate to should…

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 17:44

        :lol: :lol: Mike Wallace once played for the Steelers but he left. Both the Red Sox and the Patriots are cool.

        Oh dear. Well, you mustn’t get affectionate at all. The professor doesn’t like such things, I fear.

        I’d hunt her out!

        :lol: Okay…

        (I really do forget: Did I actually call myself a rat?)

        Very true. It’s against the professor’s gentlemanly side.

      • 75 FictionFan October 22, 2013 at 19:51

        Thank you for the clarification! :)

        OK, I hate you! Better?

        She’ll get angry, and when she gets angry, she gets…

        How I wish you hadn’t asked that question, because honesty compels me to admit that I believe it was I who called you a rat. But not just any old rodent – a brave and magnificent katana-wielding Samurai Rat!!!

        As it should be.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 22:53

        :) Of course!

        Yes, it definitely has a ring to it. But I’m really not sure. What do you think?

        :lol: Really? If only the professor could remember things… I know, but it still smarts to be called a rodent at times, you know.

        But it’s not Twainish of me.

      • 77 FictionFan October 23, 2013 at 00:33

        I’d rather like you, given a choice, but if you prefer to be hated, then I will try to comply… ;)

        But the rodent in question was Reepicheep. However I stopped calling you it ‘cos you didn’t seem to fully appreciate the compliment – can I help it if BigSister brought it up again? She’s a law unto herself, you know…uncontrollable! you should challenge her to a duel…

        True, but hopefully you also don’t have a Twain moustache…

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 12:45

        Oh dear. Liking is just fine, then. The professor would hate to be hated.

        A duel? The professor can’t challenge a lady to a duel!!! (I think she was being kind about it anyway.)

        The professor doesn’t.

      • 79 FictionFan October 23, 2013 at 14:03

        OK, we’ll go with liking, then…

        I think she was.

        I’m glad!

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 15:13

        Yes, very fine.

        BigSister seems very sweet.


      • 81 FictionFan October 23, 2013 at 17:30

        :lol: Yes, she probably is…

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke October 23, 2013 at 21:39

        What an interesting response. I do wonder what it means…

        Do you? ;)

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 01:39

        Yes, I do, and I know you won’t tell me.

      • 85 FictionFan October 24, 2013 at 13:40

        It’s my new campaign to become more Professorish… :twisted:

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2013 at 13:45

        :lol: Wickedness becomes you, my lady!

  12. 87 The Dancing Rider October 21, 2013 at 13:27

    Ah yes, skimmed as I have no time to write. But the Professor can expect full dissertation later today! :)

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:27

      Awesome! Will look forward to it.

      • 89 The Dancing Rider October 21, 2013 at 21:07

        Proverbs: I like #3 the best. I also think it’s true.

        Section B: It’s scary that I think I understand the difference.

        C: Hmmm. I think Schwarz (though I do like him) is trying to be deep. He shouldn’t. ;-)

        Section D: Imminent war sounds scary. But then they did fight a lot during the Dark Ages. And what is up with all the factories?!

        E: I doubt Arthur will have to worry, as you point out . However, his suggestion as to where peasants eat is the most interesting facet of the section!

        Section F: Tassie Devils sound like my type of … pet. Oh, and I firmly believe there is NO book the professor cannot brilliantly riip!! :)

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2013 at 13:13

        Shnodgrate will be happy! You know, it was–sadly–not about the professor.

        No, it’s very professorish and I’m proud of you!

        That’s very true. Lot of wars then. Well, Mortimer’s just plumb wealthy. He’s constantly opening up new factories.

        It is! But I think he’s starting to like Ruber’s Catering–now that Mortimer has helped it out.

        Yes, exactly! They’re glorious little beasts. Aw, thanks! I think the professor is about to start a new ripping category…

  13. 91 MissTiffany October 21, 2013 at 13:24

    I like proverb number 1 the best. Oh dear. Sounds like the Punchy Lands may be a bit dangerous right now, what with war brewing.
    Ah, so you decided there was no unrippable book – so does that mean you decided Dr. Suess can indeed be ripped?

    • 92 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:26

      Oh yes, somewhat dangerous. But only over in England. You know, the war probably won’t last long. I don’t think either leader can lead an army. (If Darby was there I’m sure he’d die in the conflict.)

      But does Dr. Seuss count as a book?

      • 93 MissTiffany October 21, 2013 at 20:16

        Well here’s to hoping the war won’t last long. I think Darby could make it through just fine! And if he didn’t, I’m certain he would die honorably (if any man can die honorably…)

        That is a good question. It is a type of book, certainly, but are children’s books meant to be ripped?

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 21:40

        Yes! There always seems to be a war in the PL. I’m sure the professor could manage.

        I don’t know…err…yes! Every book can be ripped!

  14. 95 L. Marie October 21, 2013 at 13:15

    Why did Fats Henry purchase a zeppelin? Also, was King Arthur paid to deliver that plug for Ruber’s Catering? Lastly, why a tassie devil?

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:25

      I’m not exactly sure. The professor thinks he likes zeppelins… They would be neat to fly in, wouldn’t they? (Thought I wouldn’t trust Henry as a pilot for sure!)

      Personally, I think Arthur enjoys Ruber’s Catering now that Mortimer has teamed up with Ruber. Why the autocrat doesn’t want a Cashew City is strange. Perhaps he feels it would take away from his power?

      Why a Tassie Devil! The professor loves devils. I would have a whole collection if possible.

  15. 97 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 13:06

    Sometimes I do, even when I don’t…I like to stop at that point.
    An imminent war? Not good, cashews would be rationed.
    I hate to say it (but sometimes I do, even when I don’t want to) and this is totally irreverent, but that’s me in the early morning hours….have you ever thought of ripping the bible?

    • 98 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:23

      Yes, probably rationed. Schwarz’s quote is lovable if a bit dull, I feel.

      The professor must admit, he really hasn’t. What do you think of the proposition?

      • 99 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 16:40

        I so want to say I double dog dare you, but I fear you may lose readership. Best to get on to Animal Farm or something of that nature.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:46

        In truth, I don’t think the professor would ever rip the Bible. I consider it more than just a book.

        What the professor is struggling with, though, is Dr. Seuss. Do you suppose one of his could be ripped? I’m just not sure about it.

      • 101 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 16:50

        Oh, Dr.Seuss would provide for great ripping material!

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:55

        But I’m still not sure how to go about it. Take Hop on Pop, for example…

      • 103 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 17:59

        You make me laugh!

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 18:26

        :D Must be the professorishness!

      • 105 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 16:52

        P.S. You are a very good professor in redirecting my bad train of thought. Excellent maneuver.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 16:56

        Would you say it was a professorish, smooth maneuver? (BTW, my comment on you blog went into spam, I fear. The professor is having tech problems over here.)

      • 107 Angeline M October 21, 2013 at 17:03

        Very smooth! My husband is an organizational psychologist and he uses this smooth move a lot…on me.
        I’ll go check my spam…how rude to send your comments there

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2013 at 18:19

        :D That’s a good thing, I think…

        I know! Some dadblame twerdlit is behind it, I’m sure. This has been going on.

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