Section A. Punchy Proverbs:
Subject: The PL’ers (Punchy Landers) speak:
(1) Is it better to speak or listen? Depends, sir. Depends on who you’re listening or speaking to. ~ Merlin
(2) I gently instruct honeybuttses with my fists. ~ Manly-Man
(3) To shut someone up quickly, start whispering. ~ V. Shnodgrate
Favorites, Punchy Family?
Section B. The professor speaks:
I imagine the professor is a fairly nice chap—at times, I have my doubts, though. As a matter of fact, as soon as I weigh everything, I’m quite certain my doubts are in the right.
Section C. What the PL’ers have to say:
A short conversation:
MERLIN: Where did I put that cup, Mr. Magi?
MR. MAGI: In the sink?
MERLIN: I’m not sure. What do you think?
MR. MAGI: I think it’s possible. Why don’t you look and see?
MERLIN: Because it would be a waste of time if it’s not there. And it’s not good to waste time.
MR. MAGI: I suppose so…
MERLIN: So, we must make sure it’s there before we check. That’s what’s called: Jumping the thought.
MR. MAGI: I…I…I’m confused.
Section D. Featured Story: Daddy & Ruber Salami
by J. Freedwoppen
Daddy Salami is actively trying to shut down Ruber’s Catering.
“It’s not fair,” Daddy Salami said. “Me son, Ruber, is being a meany. Heha. He won’t give his daddy nuffin’.”
That’s not how Ruber sees it:
“Oh nothin’! He’ll get over it. And if he doesn’t…? What the heck, who cares, right? He goes through moods like this. Just ask Lucini Pavarinni.”
