—————————————————————————————————-

Section A. Punchy Proverbs:

Sadly, V. Shnodgrate–the usual writer of the proverbs–has fallen ill this week. So, PL’ers pitched in to fill the void. Just keep that in mind as you read.

(1) The desert is like my mind: vast. ~ Fats Henry

(2) A chocolate cake only looks good if you want it. ~ Merlin

(3) It’s better to be manly; that way, you don’t have to be afraid. ~ Manly-Man

Favorites, PF?

Section B. Something you should know about the professor:

I think I’d like to be called Smiles Riot.

““““““““““““

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

A short conversation:

PARKER: Bud, I know you’re proud about your proverb, but…

HENRY: But what, Parker, huh?

PARKER: Well, bud, you set yourself up for this.

HENRY: For what?

PARKER: Not only is your mind vast like the desert, but your body is vast because of dessert.

HENRY: Just be quiet, dummy!

““““““““““““

Section D. Breaking News:

Smiles Riot escaped from the mental asylum.

Schwarz Tauptinker had dinner with Emperor Napoleon of France.

Mortimer Butterfield has declared an industrial war on George Dewdrop. Jazzy Couldren laughed.

““““““““““““

Section E. Featured Story: Smiles Riot
by J. Freedwoppen

The whole PL was thrown into upheaval when famed mental asylum, Crackjaw, released word that Smiles Riot had escaped from their facility.

Smiles Riot is a very brilliant mathematician, who suffers from MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder).

Sometimes Mr. Riot is his normal, standoffish self; other times, Mr. Riot is the suave, incredibly mean, Spitz Mulligan.

As of now, authorities are looking diligently for Mr. Riot.

For you see, Smiles Riot’s life has been threatened by fellow inmate, Boris the Green, who was released from Crackjaw two weeks before Mr. Riot escaped.

And also, Mr. Riot could get into a lot of trouble–just as himself.

Section F. Ask a PL’er a question:

Any questions for a specific PL’er? Ask here!

““““““““““““

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.)

    I kinda like (2)… because I want a chocolate cake right now :lol:

    Smiles Riot… Nice ring to it. Sounds like a band name or perhaps a superhero name for the professor?

    Haha, I’m beginning to like Parker. Just a bit. He can be such a smartypants.

    Hang on…Is the professor personally linked to Mr. Riot somehow? How did the dinner with the Emperor go for Schwarz?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2014 at 18:10

      Haha! With cherries, of course.

      Well, Mr. Riot is a hero of the professor’s. I suppose the story needs told of our acquaintance.

      :lol: Yes, that’s it! But Henry deserved it.

      Sort of…it’s a long story.

      A post of that is coming out this week!

      • 3 Hazy January 24, 2014 at 09:04

        Haha, of course! But I much prefer chocolate mousse than cake. :D

        Oh, please do. I bet that would be an interesting story! I’d be glad to hear it, of course.

        :lol:

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke January 24, 2014 at 15:05

        Oh dear. It would be a hard decision, for sure!

  2. 5 bardictale January 14, 2014 at 17:27

    Henry’s was my favorite. Mind, won’t be using it my self.
    So, do I address the cookies to the professor or to Smiles Riot?

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:47

      There is something to Henry’s. But I bet how he said it was a bit pompous–if you know what I mean.

      Oh…definitely the professor! :)

  3. 7 Lesley January 14, 2014 at 04:54

    Hahaha your body is vast because of dessert <— mean but funny :lol:

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:59

      :lol: Thanks, Lesley. I think Parker was quite proud of his joke! Henry, though, was mad!

      • 9 Lesley January 23, 2014 at 16:47

        I bet poor Henry was mad, but I enjoyed the joke too!

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke January 23, 2014 at 17:17

        I bet so!

  4. 11 Sonya Solomonovich January 13, 2014 at 23:19

    Schwarz dines with Napoleon? I would like a full report from Mr. Freedwhoppen please!

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:57

      Definitely, Sonya! Perhaps it will be a blog post next week. I’m sure there’s some detail there.

  5. 13 The Dancing Rider January 13, 2014 at 22:28

    I bet you know which proverb I will choose as my favorite. And to think I am nothing like this PL character! That’s right! #2. I don’t even like Fats’ proverb!

    You would want to be called Smiles Riot?! Nah…..Professor is so much more dignified!

    Bud Parker, the other part of my PL character, told the truth sort of, but in such a mean way. To think I’m associated with him. :(

    Uh-oh. “Smiles Riot” escapee????? Oh, yes, professor. Mr. Riot (Mulligan) could get into loads of trouble on his own. After all, he has several “hims” to argue with. Hope B the G doesn’t find him!

    • 14 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:55

      :lol: I was hoping some of the PF would choose #2!

      :D That’s true, DR. Maybe just a nickname, then? I suppose Mr. Riot is sort of like this professor’s hero. :)

      But it was funny. It was humorous–even if it was wicked…

      Yes! I’m rooting for Mr. Riot as well! I’d love to see him escape B the G, for sure.

  6. 15 elprice2013 January 13, 2014 at 21:34

    I like #2 the best! It was when I figured that out I started to have a little control over my sweet teeth :D

    Smiles Riot is a catchy name, but whenever I try to change my name I forget to answer when someone calls me by the new name. It does cause issues when a timely response is called for.

    I think “Jazzy Caldron laughed” might be my phrase of the week!

    J. Freedwoppen: why is Monday the 13th not more superstitious then Friday the 13th?

    • 16 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:43

      :lol: The professor, you see, would have been more tempted had it been a cherry cake. With cherries.

      Haha, that’s a good point, El. (Should I call you El?) I do hope I’ll remember, but, considering my record, I probably won’t. The professor can be scattered at times.

      Hmm…you know, the professor should use it too. When would one use it, though?

      A great question! Monday always bothered me more too. I wonder which one bothers DS…it will be interesting!

      • 17 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:50

        We call her “Bethy.”

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:49

        Good to know. Thanks. The professor goes by a lot of different names himself.

      • 19 Susan P January 14, 2014 at 20:00

        I bet you do! :D

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:50

        :D I do!

      • 21 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 01:54

        :D

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 13:52

        :)

      • 23 elprice2013 January 14, 2014 at 00:32

        I love chocolate, but cake is meh. Ice cream is a different story!

        Not El. Bethy does work or E in a pinch. Sometimes E is annoying though. I have no idea when it is annoying and when it isn’t so probably stick with Bethy. I can relate to scattered. Lists help with that sometimes.

        Well it would fit right in instead of your usual exclamation. Such as…stubbed your toe, “Jazzy Cauldron laughed!” Someone cuts you off, child asks you the same question for the tenth time, you get put on hold with insurance company for the tenth time, the answer to your critical question doesn’t make sense or nonsense…maybe the professor gets the idea?

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:58

        But every professorish person knows that cake is better than ice cream!

        I see. Thank you for setting the professor straight. The last thing I’d want to do is call you E, but that could have happened! :lol:

        I think the professor will have to start using lists!

        :lol: :lol: I do get the idea! A stellar one, too. I’m seriously going to try to use this!

      • 25 elprice2013 January 15, 2014 at 01:09

        Do ice cream cakes count with professorish people?

        You are welcome! At least you didn’t assume!

        Just don’t scatter your lists! :D

        Thank you! It doesn’t do to get stuck in a rut with your words. :D

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 01:19

        I think so. Especially cherry ones that I just invented now. :)

        The professor assumes all sorts of things at times, and gets into bad trouble about it!

        :lol: I probably will, alas!

        I think MM would be honored!

      • 27 elprice2013 January 15, 2014 at 11:10

        I think that it might be safe for me to assume the professor likes cherries. Just a little bit.

        Anything for MM, right?

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 13:59

        :D The professor loves cherries.

        Yes, otherwise, he gets cranky. And he starts all that whole thingy!

      • 29 Bethy January 16, 2014 at 15:17

        Wowawee! We wouldn’t want to start that whole thingy!

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 16:27

        :lol: Great use of Punchy Argot! I always forget about that word.

  7. 31 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 18:24

    I’m going to skip right over Mr. Henry – I wouldn’t want to step on his toes. Besides, Bud Parker beat me to the punch line. And who would NOT want chocolate cake? Sounds like MM is whistling in the dark….

    “I think I’d like to be called Smiles Riot.” I can’t hear that one. What’s up with that anyway?

    Breaking news – at least no one got chemicals in their water.

    Things are looking well for Smiles Riot – or the Professor as the case may be. I thought I heard MM saying SR deserves whatever he gets. I can’t figure out what he means. I think I would like to ask him about that.

    This is great – lots of fun and plenty of it. :D Oh, and DS is still missing.

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:37

      :lol: So, you must have a favorite, though! Even if it’s the best of the evils. You must pick one!

      You can’t hear that???? Really? I identify with Mr. Riot.

      That would be interesting breaking news, though…

      Yes, you know, the professor could be SR–which would be an interest. Perhaps I’m not, though. Great! I’ll get the question to MM. He’s always saying things that need more information.

      :D Thanks! I know…don’t know where to find the bugger!

      • 33 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:46

        I am convinced that you are a riot. No problem to believe that. But to change your name is a big deal, don’t you know? Mr. Magi would be involved I am certain.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:46

        Well, maybe it should just be a nickname, then. You’re right about Mr. Magi. He and the World Court would have a say, for sure.

        The professor is a riot because he runs riot like Hector.

      • 35 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 17:30

        Ah, yes, how did I forget Hector?

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 22:43

        I’m not sure. I think it could be a crime, you forgetting.

      • 37 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 22:51

        My forgetterer works better than my rememberer.

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 22:59

        Haha! I like that. Me too!

      • 39 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 23:02

        It’s a dadblame nuisance is what!

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 23:12

        Dadblamery can be nice at times!

      • 41 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 23:20

        I dunno – give me dadblamery or give me…?

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 23:45

        A dadblameit?

  8. 43 Anja January 13, 2014 at 18:20

    Totally agree with #2. Chocolate cake rarely looks good to me.
    Hmmm Smiles Riot? Interesting.

    • 44 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:34

      Really? The professor is surprised! :shock: Why not?

      :D Doesn’t that sound like me?

      • 45 Anja January 13, 2014 at 22:36

        I don’t like a lot of sweets….I rarely eat cakes or anything like that. Although I bake super well. :)

        Not so sure it sounds like you. lol

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:55

        The professor would have guessed you’re a great baker! I usually only have cake on my birthday.

        Oh dear. Perhaps not. You see, Mr. Riot is like a hero.

      • 47 Anja January 14, 2014 at 18:46

        I don’t even have it on my birthday. Although I love cherry garcia ice cream.

        Hero? In what way?

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:48

        Ooo, so do I!!!

        I’m not sure, but he’s my hero!

  9. 49 technophile9 January 13, 2014 at 18:14

    Quote #2 is perfect! :) And although I find Smiles Riot quite a strange name, it is also very punchyish. :D

    • 50 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 18:25

      And so it is punchyish now I think of it.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:37

        And professorish?

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:34

      Thanks, Joe! I knew someone would like that beauty. :)

      :lol: It is! Isn’t it evocative?

    • 53 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:47

      Aren’t Punchyish and Professorish the same thing?

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:46

        Oh no. Leastways, I don’t think so. They’re very different.

      • 55 Susan P January 14, 2014 at 19:59

        Would your answer stand up in a court of law?

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:49

        No…but maybe so, since the professorish one uttered it?

      • 57 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 01:54

        Hmmmm…lemme think

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 13:51

        A dangerous pastime…

      • 59 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 14:42

        So they tell me. Does that make me dangerous?

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 18:41

        If you think much, I’d say so. (Btw, you’ve updated your gravatar! Very nice. :) )

      • 61 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 19:00

        Thank you, sir, she said.

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 23:27

        Huff-Hum and a roar, he said. :)

      • 63 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 01:54

        That seems a little rambunctious. ;)

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 14:13

        :lol: Maybe just a bit…

      • 65 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 17:26

        :D

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 22:40

        :cool:

  10. 67 FictionFan January 13, 2014 at 16:37

    Very good, Smiles – haven’t I heard the name Spitz somewhere before?

    • 68 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:32

      Yes, I call myself that at times, you know.

      • 69 FictionFan January 13, 2014 at 23:00

        Amongst other things, Fitz!

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:56

        I never called myself Fitz!

      • 71 FictionFan January 14, 2014 at 13:59

        Oh yes, you did! You even tried to persuade me to call you it at one point…but I preferred C-W-W! So many names…so many personas…an enigma!

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 14:26

        Well…well…well, you have many names yourself!

      • 73 FictionFan January 14, 2014 at 14:49

        Maybe I should have more…hmm! I might change my name to HaggisWoman – like WonderWoman, but with more sensible clothing…

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 17:11

        :lol: But you don’t even like haggis! Would you wear the haggis’ skins?

      • 75 FictionFan January 14, 2014 at 20:45

        :lol: I was thinking more of a nice tartan-based costume wit a matching little mask…

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:53

        Can’t say I know what a tartan cloak is like.

      • 77 FictionFan January 15, 2014 at 15:17

        Colourful! And warm. The Professor would look good in a tartan cape…

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 18:46

        I just googled one…and it seems there is capes only for women. Are you making fun of me?

      • 79 FictionFan January 15, 2014 at 21:04

        Haha! Just googled too, and I see what you mean! I had no idea there were actually tartan capes for women either – bet only Americans wear them! ;)

        You could wear a nice plaid coat like Sherlock Holmes then with the built-in shoulder cape…

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 23:38

        I’ve never seen any, but then again, I don’t pay attention to such things.

        Now, that does sound spicy!

  11. 81 Debbie January 13, 2014 at 15:48

    Sorry, Merlin, but I beg to differ. A chocolate cake looks good any time, and the mere act of looking at a chocolate cake results in your mouth beginning to water with desire for one!

    I rather like the new background photo. It’s vast, like Fats Henry’s mind, heehee!

    • 82 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 18:26

      I agree, Debbie. Chocolate any time.

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:37

        Any time?

    • 84 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:31

      I think you could be right. Especially if there’re cherries on the cake.

      :lol: Good one! Haha!

      • 85 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:48

        Yep.

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:47

        :)

  12. 87 Painting Pundit January 13, 2014 at 15:36

    So Spitz Mulligan must appreciate Manly-man’s proverb but does Manly-man appreciate Spitz. Mr Riot sounds like a riot.

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:39

      I do wonder if MM does. Perhaps not. I should ask him, shouldn’t I?

  13. 89 MissTiffany January 13, 2014 at 15:24

    I personally like Fats Henry’s, even if it does speak of a massive ego. Merlin’s is definitely true. But I don’t think Manly-Man’s is true of everyone. I hope Shnodgrate feels better.

    Smiles Riot? Is that a new name for Chaos, perhaps?

    Mr. Riot sounds like he’d be right at home in the Chaos organization.

    • 90 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:38

      You miss Shnodgrate that bad? I think Henry might suffer from a low self esteem, but I’m not sure. Perhaps his ego is massive. You may have got it there, Miss T!

      Sounds rather swell, doesn’t it?

      He sure does. A great tool. I could try and contact him, and then we’d see.

      • 91 MissTiffany January 13, 2014 at 15:48

        I do like his insights. I think many people who put on such a big show about themselves actually do have low self-esteem.

        It does!

        Excellent.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:30

        That’s a good point. Did you know there’s a rumor that says F. Henry, DS, and Mr. Magi are brothers?

      • 93 MissTiffany January 14, 2014 at 14:24

        No I didn’t! How intriguing!

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 14:30

        It is an interest.

      • 95 MissTiffany January 14, 2014 at 14:30

        Certainly! Who began this rumor, do you know?

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 17:09

        I don’t. I think Mr. Magi sort of confirms/denies it at the same time. DS doesn’t say much about it, though.

      • 97 MissTiffany January 15, 2014 at 14:05

        They like to keep the mystery going, I see.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 18:37

        Well, I think they do. Mr. Magi tries to tell the truth about it.

      • 99 MissTiffany January 15, 2014 at 19:20

        Which just confuses everyone, I’m sure.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 23:33

        It sure does!

  14. 101 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2014 at 15:00

    I need time to make a thoughtful comment. New stuff happening…Good Morning, Duketh.

    • 102 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:35

      Good morning, Audith!

      • 103 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2014 at 20:28

        I like proverb #2. I all know what I want, so in the end nothing else matters. I like chocolate cake, so I pay attention when someone speaks of chocolate cake. Carrot cake may have lots to say, but I don’t like carrot cake, so I couldn’t care less about what it has to say.
        #3 sounds like every man I’ve ever known

        Good luck with the name change, professor.

        Parker is getting on my nerves

        Section D is full of interest.

        This won’t be the last we hear of Smiley, I’d say. Sounds messy for sure, professor.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:40

        :lol: :lol: The professor is totally amused about the cakes! I think carrot cake is worth two chocolate cakes!!! I’m surprised some of the PF is liking proverb #2. It’s stunning!

        Don’t you think it’s a fine name?

        Ooo, are you on Henry’s side?

        It does sound messy. Mr. Riot is up to something.

      • 105 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 13, 2014 at 22:02

        :lol: Tis true, Duketh. Two chocolate cakes??!! But why carrot cake? I think the proverb is bloody fantastic and has me in deep thought. It is truer than true. Don’t tell my darling, Shoddy.

        I fear that it may be too soon to say. Smiley Riot sounds like a fine name, but tis his character I’ve yet to learn.

        I believe I am. Parker should have his mouth washed out with soap.

        Mr. Riot…is he anything like Guy Smiley? ;)

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:50

        Haha, the professor is really glad that you like Shnodgrate. He can be a bit grumpy–totally unlike the professor–at times.

        I think he might be disturbed that you call him Smiley over Smiles. :lol:

        Goodness! Maybe just a bit harsh?

        Who’s Guy Smiley?

      • 107 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 14, 2014 at 14:50

        I take it back, Smiles it is.

        Who knows. I’m sure I’m totally out of line. Apologies to Parker, professor.

        Just a guy.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 17:12

        It’s much more charming, I think.

        No, I don’t think so. The professor admires your fierceness!

        I like the name!

      • 109 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 14, 2014 at 20:34

        You should have a nickname, if you want it. They’re fun to have around, but you’re Duketh to me. I won’t call you Smiles unless you ask me to or unless I figure out when you’re acting like Mr. Riot. I look forward to learning more about him.

        Grrr :)

        He’s an old muppet or something.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:52

        You know, Audith, you’re the first that called me by my last name, and I like it! I would have you call me nothing else! :)

        :D :lol:

        I like muppets.

      • 111 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 15, 2014 at 03:42

        I first, the last, and the only. :D I like it, too. Well, I shall continue since I have your permission.

        I’m so funny, I know. I crack you up.

        Me, too. Silly little people live inside muppets.

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 13:56

        So far, the only, for sure!

        And you bring out my wickedness… :evil:

        Hands aren’t silly little people!

      • 113 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 15, 2014 at 14:48

        Oooo, horns! I like days like these… :D

        They’re connected to silly people, so that makes the hands silly, as well.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 18:44

        Me too!

        That’s a good point, Audith.

      • 115 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 15, 2014 at 20:32

        What are you up to with those horns today, Duke? :D

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 23:35

        Just being naughty…

      • 117 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 16, 2014 at 01:19

        Same ole same ole then, okay.

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 14:10

        :D

  15. 119 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 14:52

    I hope Schnodgrate recovers because these proverbs are missing that provocative element of deep thinking. Especially since Mr. Merlin is out of favor with me with his proverb.
    :-(

    • 120 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:35

      He is? I think Shnod should be back next week. (I like his proverbs better.) But what did Merlin do?

      • 121 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 15:38

        He made chocolate seem unappealing and that is a lie. It is a false lie ( in my Yul Brenner voice) lol
        :-P

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:40

        :lol: Well, the professor thinks it might be a bit true? Maybe…?

      • 123 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 18:06

        Ugh.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:33

        Just a little bit?

      • 125 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 22:54

        Chocolate is delish all year around. Much like your cashews. Wouldn’t you say?

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:56

        No! Cashews are delish all year around. I’m not sure about chocolate. A cherry cake would be better, Lady.

      • 127 ladycheetah7 January 14, 2014 at 14:15

        Cherry and chocolate. …now that is gross. Lol.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 14:29

        What? You can’t be serious!!!

      • 129 ladycheetah7 January 14, 2014 at 14:33

        Oh but I am….

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 17:10

        Well, you’re always telling tales. Like about not liking Mr. R…

      • 131 ladycheetah7 January 14, 2014 at 17:15

        PVJ this must be a deflection tactic as it has been and is apparent to me that I am not telling lies even about your beloved Mr. R. He and his ladies can kick rocks, go outside and count the raindrops.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 17:18

        Oh, the professor doesn’t like Mr. R and his ladies!

      • 133 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:49

        Is a puzzlement is Yule Brennerish.

      • 134 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 22:53

        Yes! Lol.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:48

        :lol:

    • 136 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 18:28

      Is a puzzlement!

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:37

        What is?

  16. 138 L. Marie January 13, 2014 at 14:48

    I’ll be looking forward to hearing more about Smiles Riot (or Spitz Mulligan if that personality happens to manifest).
    And I agree that Fats Henry made trouble for himself with that proverb.

    • 139 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:34

      It will be interesting to see what Smiles does, for sure.

      He sure did. Wasn’t a wise move. Henry’s such a braggart.

  17. 140 portergirl January 13, 2014 at 14:18

    I agree with Manly and Merlin, very fine proverbs. But Fats Henry has overlooked something – the desert maybe vast, but it is also pretty empty!

    Smiles Riot sounds like a lot of fun. I hope he is able to evade Boris The Green.

    I wonder, did Schawrz cook for Napoleon? That would have been quite something!

    Industrial war? No wonder Jazzy laughed :)

    • 141 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 15:34

      :lol: That’s a very good point, Lucy. I do wonder if that will dawn on Fats. It would be great fun if it did.

      Me too. I like Smiles, you know.

      Ooo, I bet not! I’m sure Napoleon has personal chefs. You know, it mightn’t be safe to have Schwarz cook for you.

      Yes, it all has to do with product prices, I think.

      • 142 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 18:29

        I don’t think I want any PLs to cook for me.

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke January 13, 2014 at 21:38

        Really? Not even the good chefs? I just haven’t covered that, you see.

      • 144 ladycheetah7 January 13, 2014 at 22:26

        I agree. Death would be imminent.

      • 145 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 22:42

        And that would be merciful.

      • 146 Susan P January 13, 2014 at 21:49

        You go first…

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke January 14, 2014 at 13:48

        I do already!

      • 148 Susan P January 14, 2014 at 20:00

        Do you have a picture of it?

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 00:50

        No, I don’t take many pics…

      • 150 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 01:54

        Except of strange creatures.

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 13:52

        And when I’m forced to take a promo pic of myself.

      • 152 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 14:43

        Well, now. I guess that explains all of the pics on the internet.

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 18:42

        It does. But I don’t think you believe me about that.

      • 154 Susan P January 15, 2014 at 19:01

        I try to keep an open mind about those pictures. Meanwhile, I imagine what they look like.

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2014 at 23:27

        An open mind? What do you see?

      • 156 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 01:55

        I’ll never tell. :)

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 14:14

        Rats! One day you’ll know, Susan.

      • 158 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 17:33

        Whispering hope, are you?

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 22:44

        You’ll be very scared and disappointed when you find out, too.

      • 160 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 22:56

        I somehow doubt that. I’ve read The Shining.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 22:59

        What’s that got to do with it, dadblameit?

      • 162 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 23:03

        The dadblame Shining was dadblame scary.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 23:13

        I bet it was! The book, I mean. The movie kind of made me giggle.

      • 164 Susan P January 16, 2014 at 23:23

        I watched some of the YouTube sequences of the movie, but the book was so much better. I was tutoring a student in town, and borrowed the CD from the library. I was fine until the story hit the climax and I had to pull off the road because I was that engaged in it.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2014 at 23:45

        I’ve only seen parts of the movie as well. Never read the book, though. Do you recommend it?

      • 166 Susan P January 17, 2014 at 12:24

        If you like psychological thrillers. Or was that psychotic? Anyway, the only other one of his books that was truly creepy was It.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2014 at 13:56

        You’re tempting me to read some SK!

      • 168 Susan P January 17, 2014 at 14:19

        It can be addicting sometimes. I haven’t read any in awhile, though. Some of his books are so dadblamed long that it takes me a whole week to get through them. Then he has some series of books. Interesting thing I discovered is that there is a lot of crossover of characters in his stories. Longest book he wrote: The Stand. It was also the first I read, and it seemed like it would never end.

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2014 at 18:30

        A week is fast for this professor! I should probably read some SK. I’ve never read one.

      • 170 Susan P January 17, 2014 at 19:47

        SK is a good writer – except he has become rather wordy in some of his newest novels. Except for the follow of of The Shining. Also, there is language.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke January 17, 2014 at 23:34

        Yes, he does have rather horrid language. He should beep himself out.
