Section A. Punchy Proverbs:
V. Shnodgrate suddenly—and quite unexpectedly, much to the professor’s chagrin—went on vacation. Therefore, this professor had to scurry around like a beetle collecting proverbs for this issue.
Below are the results.
(1) Pain is the mind trying to tell you it hurts. ~ Merlin.
(2) Pain is manlier when you ignore it. ~ Manly-Man.
(3) Pain is the baby crying out in the night. ~ Smiles Riot.
Section B. The professor speaks:
The professor has an orange tree in his professorish office:
Section C. What the PL’ers have to say:
A short conversation:
MR. MAGI: Something is a-brewing!
FATS HENRY: Humph! You always think something dreadful is about to happen!
MR. MAGI: That’s because something dreadful usually does happen.
FATS HENRY: Well, what is it this time?
MR. MAGI: I left my cave with the proper amount of Sotsiz leaves to handout to those PL’ers who have behaved. But I don’t have them anymore. They’ve been stolen!
FATS HENRY: Haha! You just misplaced them!
Section D. Breaking News:
The G. Miller Construction Co. (operated now by Tex B.) is building a new castle for Fats Henry on Fat Man Island. Apparently, the “beach party” was rather destructive.
Section E. Featured Story: Dr. Zauberer
by J. Freedwoppen
Mr. Magi was the only one who took him seriously.
Fats Henry laughed.
Daddy Salami “Bwa-lala’d.”
And Prince Beef yawned.
This wasn’t the first time Dr. Zauberer had tried such a thing.
Section F. Ask a PL’er a question:
Got a question for Daddy Salami, Schwarz, Manly-Man, or any PL’er? Ask here!
Section G. Hearing from the PL Family:
A few question:
SusanP: What are some Valentine traditions in the PL?
Answer: Well, interestingly enough, Susan, it really depends where in the PL one is. Prince Beef is actively trying to abolish the holiday in America.
In England, Daddy Salami likes to burn something on the day; whether it’s a house or a stack of wood really depends.
Professor VJ Duke has recently started a campaign to promote the giving of chocolate covered cashews and cherries on Valentine’s day.
Walt Walker: How is the world kept round?
Answer: Physically, not much is done about the matter. Mentally…it’s a different story. In Smiles Riot’s mind, I’m almost sure the world is not round. Crackjaw—a mental institution—tries to help the PL’ers having a hard time with shapes.
Audrey Dawn: Why is the professor so quick with his responses?
Answer: Had to chuckle at your question. It does seem like the professor is a bit too quick at times, doesn’t it?
Thanks for writing in!
