What Does This Mean To You?

What does this face mean to you, PF? Quite frankly, quite professorishly, and quite honestly, I’m somewhat baffled by it; siz, I’m completely baffled by it! (It isn’t of the professor’s doing either.)

    GINGERBREAD!!!!!!! X-P

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:39

      Wowawee! Then I should eat it, but doesn’t it look scary?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 April 7, 2014 at 17:16

        Maybe a little, but I wouldn’t let that stop me! :-P

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:33

        I’ll destroy it with the katana first.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 April 8, 2014 at 13:09

        Good plan. X-D

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 23:22

        Thanks! It is rather awesome.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 April 9, 2014 at 12:19

        Though of course, if it was me, I would use a battleaxe. X-P

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 18:39

        Aren’t katanas sharper?

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 April 10, 2014 at 11:45

        Well, yesssss, but battleaxes have more potential for destruction. :-P

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 19:45

        More of a blunt force, huh?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 April 10, 2014 at 11:46

        Besides, I don’t actually have a katana… Winter (one of my characters) does but I don’t… maybe I could borrow his… sometime… but for this I’m definitely going with the battleaxe. X-P

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 19:45

        Now, Winter sounds cool, you know. The axe will be fine I’m sure.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 April 10, 2014 at 23:48

        In regards to the axe: Ehhh, somewhat. It’s just you can get a whole lot more weight behind your sweep with a battleaxe, and if your opponent has a sword and catches the sweep wrong, he could be missing parts of his sword. ;-P
        Winter is cool. But he needs to learn to loosen up, a bit. :-P He takes his job as the Princess’ bodyguard very seriously (no crush or anything, he’s eleven years older than her and has been protecting her since she was three.) But that’s really not a surprise since he took a special oath to her, well, to her parents, but let’s not be fussy… He’s oathsworn to protect her, and is technically loyal to no one else, and will probably never be released from her service… yeah, he kind of was their sacrificial lamb because SOMEONE has to do this and nobody wants to. (There are perks, though. She is honor-bound not to just forget about him if he’s hurt or sick… though if she eventually decides not to release him and to use him as an assassin rather than letting him return to the Rangers, he doesn’t have a say in the matter. The only rights he has, due to the nature of the agreement, amount to little more than fair treatment and kindness on the princess’ part, food, clothing, and healing. Which is sad, but rather necessary, due to the kingdom’s traditions… Other than his duty to protect the princess, Winter also has a duty that if she begins to violate elements of the moral code, and if she becomes a tyrant, he must do everything in his power to stop her.)
        Wow, long comment… need I say that Winter is among my favorites of my mind palace’s denizens? :-P

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2014 at 18:33

        And you know, he sounds like he’d be my favorite. I do like that if she turned tyrant, he’d be expected to stop her. That sounds cool! Where can I read more about this chap?

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 April 11, 2014 at 20:01

        Mmmm… can’t read more about him yet… I haven’t written his story yet. But I’m enjoying planning it out. Basically, it starts when he’s 14 and she’s 3; he’s in training to become a Ranger, an elite fighter/spy/ninja type warrior. No Force powers or anything, but Rangers are trained for years and years until they can hear the tiniest rustle of the grass and see and smell things other people can’t. They also tend to have preternaturally good danger senses, and can move undetected through a host of enemy knights. The one thing a Ranger hates is being caught in the open, which makes it rather uncomfortable for Winter at first, since he’s kind of in plain sight with his commitment to protecting her highness. Rangers are trained to think outside the box, which frees them from thinking within the sort of limiting parameters that seem to keep people today from being truly inventive, and they are raised to a strong moral code.
        The ironic thing, though, is that in some cases, if Winter does his duty (for instance, in the possibility of her turning into a tyrant), it may ensure his death. He could be executed for treason by her hangers-on for stopping her.
        Hmmm… the assassin angle gives me an idea. Do you think I should write a part into this story where he is ordered to assassinate someone? Rangers are primarily information gatherers, and it goes against their principles to kill someone who isn’t trying to harm other people, especially outside of a fair fight.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2014 at 22:33

        Yes, I think that would be intriguing to see what he’d do in such a situation. I’m already greatly interested in his character, actually. You know, I think I envy him his job! You need to write this!

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 April 12, 2014 at 00:55

        :-D I think I will. SPOILER ALERT: I think the Princess just inadvertently became the villain! 0_0

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 12:48

        Now that is super coolio!

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 April 14, 2014 at 18:17

        X-D Glad you like. :-P

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 18:33

        I do!

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 April 15, 2014 at 22:35

        OOOOOH! The princess’s villainy is discovered by Winter on her wedding day and HE CRASHES THE WEDDING!!!! >:-D
        Only after being pressured into assassinating someone, though. X-P

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke April 16, 2014 at 01:10

        Now that is cool. YOu should do that, for sure.

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 April 16, 2014 at 22:34

        She is very cruel later on. I think he might stay on for a while in an undercover sort of role, but she might have him whipped… I just like the idea for that scene. Just because… She must seem EEEEVILLLLLLL…

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke April 17, 2014 at 16:05

        Will he kill her in the end?

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 April 17, 2014 at 17:40

        Well, he sort of has to. Either that or ensure that she can never do any damage, ever again. (It’s all in his oath.)

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 15:43

        Maybe cut off her legs, then.

      • 27 erinkenobi2893 April 18, 2014 at 16:58

        Ummm… no, I don’t think that would work. This is in a medieval setting, so they’d consider killing her instead an act of mercy.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 17:34

        Oh I see. Maybe burning at the stake, then.

      • 29 erinkenobi2893 April 18, 2014 at 17:37

        No, I think he’s more likely to deal quickly and summarily with her. It’s possible that they would lock her up permanently, but if they thought there was any way that she might escape, Winter would have to kill her. No choice.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 17:59

        I could see myself as Winter, I think.

      • 31 erinkenobi2893 April 18, 2014 at 22:32

        I think he’s a little like my dark side, to be honest. (Not that my dark side is VERY dark. :-P) Rowan is almost like a reflection of what I’d like to be… reminiscent of Charles Wallace Murry, from the “Wrinkle in Time” books.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 13:05

        I think he’s a good guy overall.

      • 33 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 16:43

        He definitely is. (I don’t particularly like writing dark… even if it’s just an angsty SW one-shot.)

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:02

        I understand that for sure.

      • 35 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 21:21

        It’s just depressing to write dark! But I have to do it sometimes, anyway…

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:22

        It must be done at times, I suppose.

      • 37 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 21:35

        Indeed. Such as during dark times. When it’s the VILLAIN’S TURN… :-P

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:57

        *laughing* Unnerving!

      • 39 erinkenobi2893 April 22, 2014 at 15:09

        Fun. ^_^ But still unnerving. And depressing, too, from time to time… :-P

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:28

        We should kill the depression bug.

      • 41 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 12:35

        Oh, yes, we definitely should! Can we include Tauptinker on the quest? :-P

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:33

        Oh yes! I think he’ll like it. (We must bring cookies for him, though.)

      • 43 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 18:59

        *bakes oatmeal raisin cookies for all three of us* Will that do, or does Tauptinker like chocolate chip better???

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 19:04

        Oh no, he’ll love those! And many thanks!

      • 45 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 19:13

        :-D
        Shall we begin on the quest? *pulls on a cloak, takes a sword, and a staff*

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:11

        For sure! *grabs his lightsaber and katana*

      • 47 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 14:19

        *packs up some lembas in addition to the cookies*
        I have an idea. Once we’ve destroyed the depression bug, we can take over the world! :-P *packs her map and starts to examine it, realizes she’s holding it upside down, flips it right way up, then sees that it’s not making any sense and drops it into her knapsack* We’ll just let the Force guide us. :-P

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 15:07

        Yes, I fear I can’t read maps either. But I love the idea about reading the maps. *Tauptinker joins the group with his huge dissolving gun*

      • 49 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 15:37

        Hello, Tauptinker! Are you any good with maps, perchance?
        *slaps self in head* Oh wait, I forgot. We don’t even know where the depression bug is yet!

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:00

        Oh dear me! *Tauptinker just laughs and says “Chickit”* Let’s start at Mount Doom.

      • 51 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:05

        Sounds good. Should we walk, or shall I just tesser us there?

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:31

        Tesser! If you can! Is that like flying?

      • 53 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:45

        No, it’s actually like taking a warp… making a fold in the fabric of time and space and simply stepping off in another locale or time. :-) It can be an odd sensation at first, but it’s not hard to get used to. (Have you read “A Wrinkle in Time”? Marvelous book. The concept comes from there.)

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 12:48

        I know I’ve heard of it…but I don’t think I’ve read it.

      • 55 erinkenobi2893 April 25, 2014 at 16:26

        You should. it’s a good book. :-)

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:22

        But is it dreadfully long?

      • 57 erinkenobi2893 April 25, 2014 at 23:01

        Not so very long. It’s not as long as the Redwall books tend to be. ;-) Like maybe 150, 200 pages? (Redwalls are anywhere from 300 to 400 pages.)

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 16:06

        That’s a good length.

      • 59 erinkenobi2893 April 26, 2014 at 17:16

        Indeed. :-) I like longer epics, but shorter books are nice too. :-)

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 18:51

        There is something nice about a long epic. Have you read Ben-Hur?

      • 61 erinkenobi2893 April 27, 2014 at 19:56

        Working through it, bit by bit. It is one of my favorite books. Judah is so awesome!!! (And so is Charlton Heston! Or whatever the actor’s name is. :-P)
        OH. Wow. I just realized something. Winter channels Judah quite a bit. That’s kind of weird and definitely unintentional.

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 14:39

        That’s his name! I loved the book, too. (I did rip it, though.) It’s dadblame long!

        And coolio. I sorta pictured him like that. In the book, Judah is more warrior-like.

      • 63 erinkenobi2893 April 28, 2014 at 22:20

        It is long… but I guess it is possible to both love a book and hate it. Or to love the characters and still hate the book.
        Mmmm-hmmm ^_^ But Winter doesn’t have a family that we know of. (And I don’t think I’ll ever reveal his origins. Just because. It’s mystique. :-P Besides, maybe I’ll get fanfiction writers who speculate that he’s the true heir to the throne or something. :-P Or that he’s really Tariya’s illegitimate half-brother… I suppose it’s possible, though unlikely. I wonder what sorts of fanfiction people will write about my stories? I think that’s one of the perks of being an author–inspiring other young people to write, even if they have to borrow my characters to do it! ;-) )

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 17:39

        That would be coolio! Would you read your fan fiction?

      • 65 erinkenobi2893 April 29, 2014 at 17:42

        Oh, most assuredly. X-D But I’d have to be discerning, since some people *glares at the porn industry* are so enamored of trash.
        Clean, well-written fanfiction, though, is a delight.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 18:02

        It would be! But what if they had the character do something that you don’t think the character would do?

      • 67 erinkenobi2893 April 29, 2014 at 19:03

        That would be bad fanfiction, and they’d have to post it on the official fanfiction website rather than the author’s website. :-P
        Eventually, I’d like to have my author’s website to have forums, a blog area, etc., and a moderated area where they could post fanfiction, so that it would be acceptable for kids.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 21:55

        And acceptable for professors.

      • 69 erinkenobi2893 April 30, 2014 at 14:14

        Naturally. :-)
        I think well-done villain romances are marvelous, but not when the villain has an unreasoning crush on a hero. So cliche. And I also dislike non-canonical romances. Most are extremely out of character.

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke April 30, 2014 at 16:11

        I completely agree with you, Erin.

      • 71 erinkenobi2893 May 1, 2014 at 14:42

        Also, I try not to write romance when I can avoid it. (I couldn’t write romance, either “good” or “realistic”, to save my life. :-P)

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 20:06

        It’s dadblamery anyway!

      • 73 erinkenobi2893 May 2, 2014 at 13:01

        Oh, yes. The world could do with out it. Except for “The Princess Bride.” I could not live without the dadblamery of “The Princess Bride.” Where else would we get gems such as “Inconceivable!” “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” “HUMPERDINK!!!” “Killed by pirates is good.” And, of course, there’s torture. ;-P
        Though, there are some people who live on romance. I think their lives are sad.

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 13:10

        Not adventurous for sure! that movie makes me laugh so hard!

      • 75 erinkenobi2893 May 2, 2014 at 13:22

        I love that movie. “Bye bye, boys. Have fun storming the castle!” Miracle Max is the BEST. :lol:

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 20:48

        Haha! He does a great job.

      • 77 erinkenobi2893 May 3, 2014 at 19:48

        “Chocolate makes it go down better.” X-D
        No, the chocolate is what makes the miracle!!! :-P

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 12:41

        But you know, I would have slapped him too.

      • 79 erinkenobi2893 May 5, 2014 at 14:56

        Who, Miracle Max?! :-( Miracle Max is funny. :-P

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 18:08

        Yes. I suppose you’re right.

      • 81 erinkenobi2893 May 5, 2014 at 23:50

        Mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich. :lol:

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:44

        *laughs*

      • 83 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 12:51

        Have you ever had mutton, professor? I haven’t but I’d like to try some! :-)

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 13:00

        I have not! Had lamb, though.

      • 85 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 15:06

        I haven’t had any of those. :-P Mutton, veal, lamb, what have you. :-P

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:56

        The professor has had veal, too. Yucketh!

      • 87 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 18:16

        0_0 Wow…

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:07

        I know. Not what you expect someone to say.

      • 89 erinkenobi2893 May 8, 2014 at 11:07

        :-P

      • 90 erinkenobi2893 April 17, 2014 at 17:40

        No revenge here. He’ll probably hate himself for doing it.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 15:43

        I’m sure he’s grown very fond of her.

      • 92 erinkenobi2893 April 18, 2014 at 17:02

        No, it’s more that he feels regret at having to kill at all. He might have been fond of her (platonically, of course; they have had bodyguards marry the person under their protection in the past, but that is not Winter at all,) but he wouldn’t let his own feelings get in the way of duty. He regrets the loss of life, not necessarily the loss of HER life.

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 17:37

        Oh. I thought he might care about her like a daughter. But he’s all business. I like that.

      • 94 erinkenobi2893 April 18, 2014 at 22:26

        He cared for her when he thought she was a good person. But when he sees her for what she really is, he loses all emotion for her. He doesn’t hate her. He probably doesn’t really care anything about her, positive or negative after her betrayal. It’s all the same to him if she lives or dies, but he’d rather not have to kill her. He can be rather cold at times… like a sociopath with a moral compass. (That’s kind of weird but it’s how he is.)

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 13:03

        Which makes for a perfect hero, I think.

      • 96 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 16:45

        Yeah… I started by calling him “Obi-Wan” in the novel before he got his own name (Winter), then he branched out, and he’s more emotionless than Obi-Wan is (even in the Phantom Menace, when he was brilliant but really really good at concealing what he was thinking, and subtle to boot.) I guess some people are just that way. :-P

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:02

        Some people are. Windu was!

      • 98 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 21:29

        Oh, yes. The actor wasn’t though. (If you haven’t before, go on YouTube and search “Star Wars bloopers.” Hilarious!)

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:47

        I will! *laughing in anticipation*

      • 100 erinkenobi2893 April 22, 2014 at 14:41

        Seen it yet? I think that Christopher Lee, Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson and what’shisname who plays Windu must be as awesome off the set as on it. :-P Really, some of those bloopers are HILARIOUS. And poor Anakin… falling down all the time… and Qui-Gon dropping his lightsaber… *rolls on floor, howling with laughter*

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:23

        I have seen it! *laughing* It’s really funny. But it makes sense that sort of thing happens. It’s too much laugh ability!

      • 102 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 13:02

        Obi-Wan pretending to listen to the radio in the speeder in one of those takes… Anakin pulling the control off… *rolls on floor laughing* In my opinion, except for the part where Threepio falls over and Obi-Wan and Padme are like “ohhhhhhhh!” on stage in the Revenge of the Sith bloopers, the Attack of the Clones ones are the funniest. X-D

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:37

        I’m going to have to watch that one again. I love bloopers!

      • 104 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 19:12

        X-D So do I! I think it would be hilarious if they were listening to the song “On the Other Side of the Radio” in the speeder! If I knew how to edit videos/footage/whatever, I’d do a silly video with the footage from the speeder chase scene in AotC and have Anakin be listening to that and Obi-Wan keep saying “Turn the volume down!” X-P

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:10

        *laughing* That would be so funny. I could see Anakin dancing to it.

      • 106 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 14:17

        And Padme rolling on the floor laughing… and Obi-Wan running his hand through his hair in frustration. X-P

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 15:06

        *laughing* Yes!

      • 108 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 15:36

        Obi-Wan would like Celtic music like Heather Dale’s songs, and classical. :-P If you haven’t heard “The Minstrel Boy,” you should really listen to it! It is SO Obi-Wan’s song!!!

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 22:59

        I’ll have to give it a listen definitely!

      • 110 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:04

        Yay! ^_^

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:30

        :D

      • 112 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:43

        Her music is so awesome it’s beyond words. Oh, and if you haven’t heard of a composer called Thomas Bergersen–he’s amazing too!

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 12:47

        Wowawee! I’ll have to give it a listen.

      • 114 erinkenobi2893 April 25, 2014 at 15:14

        :-D Yay!

  2. 115 lifeconfusions April 5, 2014 at 18:21

    Handsome I must say :D :D

    • 116 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:32

      Really? *smiles*

      • 117 lifeconfusions April 7, 2014 at 23:47

        Why not? :D

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 02:05

        Well, do you think the professor looks like that?

      • 119 lifeconfusions April 8, 2014 at 15:34

        Maybe, You tell me ! :P

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 00:03

        But I’m not sure how…

  3. 121 Painting Pundit April 5, 2014 at 15:51

    It looks like the Captain from the Captain and Tennelle. Maybe the professor is a fan of theirs?? May the concrete guy is a fan of the Captain and Tennelle?

    • 122 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:32

      But who is Captain and Tennelle?

  4. 123 Frankie Ash April 4, 2014 at 21:36

    It means that I know what the person who stole my peanut butter did with it.

    • 124 deanthefish April 4, 2014 at 23:00

      A very original point of view! :D

    • 125 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:16

      *laughing lots* And what should be done to the culprit?

      • 126 Frankie Ash April 8, 2014 at 14:40

        For art’s sake…no punishment.

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 23:59

        But…it was hung out my door. Certainly a bit for that?

  5. 128 bardictale April 4, 2014 at 15:20

    Is it edible?

    • 129 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:43

      I don’t know! What do you think, Bard?

      • 130 bardictale April 5, 2014 at 17:42

        Doesn’t look edible…

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:32

        You’re right, it doesn’t…

  6. 132 Me, Myself and DIY April 4, 2014 at 11:03

    A cement pie face – I wouldn’t dare eat it though. I’d like to be able to chew again in this lifetime. The Mohawk-esque hair leads me to wonder about the thing though. Quite the greeting as you head into your office. Someone had some fun – Professor or not! ;)

    • 133 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:29

      Haha! It would make one lose some teeth, huh? I think you’re right! Some people are laughing the professor to scorn, huh?

      • 134 Me, Myself and DIY April 4, 2014 at 15:05

        Laughing perhaps. To scorn? I doubt it. Enjoy your new friend. Does he need a name?

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:41

        *smiles* I will try! Howard has been suggested. What do you think of that?

      • 136 Me, Myself and DIY April 4, 2014 at 18:53

        Not bad. Howard with a semi-Mohawk. I say it works!

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:10

        *laughing* Kinda funny. But then again, I’ve got a weird name, too.

  7. 138 It's 5 past 50 April 4, 2014 at 00:04

    Sometimes a face is just a face? ;)

    • 139 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:06

      That’s a good point. Well, is this a mean or happy one? I can’t tell!

  8. 140 Catherine April 3, 2014 at 23:53

    Oh, dear. I have no idea!

    • 141 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:06

      Me neither! Hmm! Do you think it’s the pale orc?

      • 142 Catherine April 4, 2014 at 02:55

        It could be! I didn’t even think of that! Now that I’m thinking about it, it is a possibility…

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:24

        But he’s not mean enough, huh?

      • 144 Catherine April 5, 2014 at 00:50

        I can sort of see something resembling meanness, perhaps, but not enough. It’s more…confused.

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:25

        Yes…maybe like the professor?

      • 146 Catherine April 7, 2014 at 14:35

        Haha! Only if the professor is confused, though. But I doubt he looks like that anyway…

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:15

        Yes, he doesn’t. He’s…well, how do you suppose I look?

      • 148 Catherine April 8, 2014 at 02:35

        I don’t know…I rather fancied you wore a top hat until you stated otherwise! I suppose you look…professorish?

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 22:55

        Yes! That’s it. And since I’m the only professorish professor, I bet the look is unique.

      • 150 Catherine April 9, 2014 at 00:12

        Oh, yes. Congratulations, you have your own unique look!

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 01:31

        Haha! Thank you! I’m still unsure what it looks like, though.

      • 152 Catherine April 9, 2014 at 04:12

        That’s okay, neither do I!

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 18:35

        Well, we should figure it out, then.

      • 154 Catherine April 9, 2014 at 21:49

        Hmm…I’m beginning to think a subdued pale orc is the best guess.

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 01:30

        Subdued is the key, yes. Or carbon frozen.

      • 156 Catherine April 10, 2014 at 02:32

        Haha yes!

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 19:36

        *laughs*

  9. 158 boorat April 3, 2014 at 23:10

    To me, this looks like the face of a very pudgy baker (because of the wee chef’s hat) . The baker is smiling broadly because he has just received the “Most Flavorful Cookie” award at the local county fair. On his way home from the fair, he’s too busy smiling to realize that there is wet concrete up ahead. Just his luck, he decides that now is as good a time as any and trips face first into said wet concrete. He is able to unstick his face from it, and hurries home to remove the quickly drying substace from his face. The next day, he strolls back to the scene and finds his face imprited into the new sidewalk. And now, everyday when walking around town, he is able to remember the night of that county fair.
    Years and years later, when the baker is long gone and forgotten, tourists gaze at this sidewalk in wonder at the circumstances some random man must have went through.
    One day, the city council decides that it is time to replace this once new sidewalk. As the workmen are tearing up the old, one man feels the need to preserve this face. He keeps it whole, and takes it home, wondering what to do with it. That afternoon, the man’s grandmother comes over and notices the concrete with astonishment.
    This random man’s face preserved in stone, was her grandfather.
    And to this day, the family of the baker hold this on display on the new sidewalk that it was once a part of.

    • 159 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:06

      Hi, Boo! Now…I must say…I loved that story lots! And I think you have the answer. *laughing* But who was the man that tripped, would you say?

      • 160 boorat April 4, 2014 at 02:25

        A very famous baker living long ago in a city still thriving to this day. You did say that you found this outside your office door, didn’t you? You never know, maybe some long lost relative of yours dropped it off for you to display. Do you see any resemblance between yourself and this character? I want to name him Howard. That name has always been a favorite of mine.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:19

        No, I don’t think the professor’s looks like that. But, yes, outside my door. Howard it is then. Should I bring it in, do you think?

      • 162 boorat April 4, 2014 at 17:29

        I do think that you should bring Howard in. He probably gets lonely by himself. You could invite him in and keep him company.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:07

        Why are his eyes closed all the time? Is he cranky?

      • 164 boorat April 6, 2014 at 02:49

        Just imagine how long he has been alone, of course he would be at least a ittle cranky. Even though he’ll probably take a litle warming up to, I’m sure you two will make great friends.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:35

        But he scares me!

      • 166 boorat April 7, 2014 at 00:31

        He’s been outside and alone for so long. I would be cranky, too.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:36

        Would you like him?

  10. 168 Julie Harris April 3, 2014 at 22:25

    Hmmm… can’t tell if the face is happy or sad… and the hair is interesting as well!

    • 169 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:04

      The hair needs combed, wouldn’t you say?

  11. 170 The Dancing Rider April 3, 2014 at 20:54

    Uh, an attempt at Mr. Potato Head with hair. I have no idea. It’s strange, weird, and unidentifiable!

    • 171 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:04

      *laughs* It does look like Mr. Potato Head now that you say it! Do you think it professorish?

      • 172 The Dancing Rider April 4, 2014 at 13:24

        Oh no. Perhaps the “idea” is professorish, but I imagine the professor does NOT look like Mr. Potato Head. ;-)

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:36

        Aw, thanks, DR! I’m actually quite innocent about the whole matter, in truth. The professor isn’t stately, you know.

      • 174 The Dancing Rider April 4, 2014 at 13:49

        Well, that is ok!

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:35

        Thanks, DR!

  12. 176 icedmocha34 April 3, 2014 at 20:41

    Looks like a little kid tried to make a sculpture of his dad or something.

    • 177 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:03

      But what if the professor did it?!

      • 178 icedmocha34 April 4, 2014 at 23:15

        Um….then you must have an interesting-looking father…

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:23

        Maybe it’s a native.

  13. 180 Debbie April 3, 2014 at 20:10

    It looks to me like a kid’s birthday cake! Or one of those ginormous cookies you can special order at the mall!

    • 181 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:02

      So…it’s edible, then! Awesome. Should I try it?

  14. 182 ruthierufiebob April 3, 2014 at 18:03

    It looks like something I’ve seen on Sesame Street… A muppet?

    • 183 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:02

      Hi, Ruthie! Do you suppose it’s a mean muppet, though?

      • 184 ruthierufiebob April 4, 2014 at 10:52

        Hello Professor!
        Hmmm It has quite a big smile, and it looks pretty genuine… Maybe it’s just a silly muppet! What do you think?

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:28

        I think you could be right! A silly one…but should I bring it in?

      • 186 ruthierufiebob April 4, 2014 at 14:17

        I think you should! Silly ones are usually fun :)

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:40

        (But this one does look…dead-like.)

  15. 188 technophile9 April 3, 2014 at 17:32

    To me it looks like someone has just been hit with a cream pie.

    • 189 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:02

      Hahaha! Yes, I fear you could be right. I’d say that’s a nice problem for that chap, would you?

  16. 190 maryamchahine April 3, 2014 at 16:59

    I’m gardoobuled!!! I have no idea…we should get Daddy Olmes on the case. Or not. A likely suspect might be Amelia.

    • 191 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:01

      Yes! *smiles big at the Punchy Argot!* So am I! DO might be able to figure it out. Ooo! Do you suppose Amelia is being nasty?

      • 192 maryamchahine April 5, 2014 at 07:44

        Yes, there is a chance of that. Or she was doing a terrible job of trying to capture the likeness of the professor, and someone found her out and she had to part with her dear clay portrait : D

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:30

        Isn’t that a declaration of war by her?

      • 194 maryamchahine April 7, 2014 at 14:22

        That might be. If it is, the professor should buy up all the clay in Punchy Land ; )

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:12

        *laughing* Probably not a good business to get in, huh?

      • 196 maryamchahine April 8, 2014 at 05:11

        Nope : )

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 22:57

        That’s what I kinda thought.

      • 198 maryamchahine April 10, 2014 at 15:47

        What’s your take on the clay, professor?

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 20:02

        I think it was a prank. Or someone forgot their artwork! *laughing*

  17. 200 MissTiffany April 3, 2014 at 14:55

    Looks like someone got bored and thought they’d have a little fun…despite their lack of artistic talent.

    • 201 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:59

      *laughing* Is it a deathmask?

      • 202 MissTiffany April 4, 2014 at 22:06

        Haha maybe so. Maybe I shouldn’t poke fun.

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:22

        It’s fun to poke fun!

      • 204 MissTiffany April 7, 2014 at 16:39

        I agree. :)

      • 205 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:30

        And many thanks for it.

  18. 206 ladycheetah7 April 3, 2014 at 14:48

    Someone has way too much time on their hands and was probably bored to pieces.

    • 207 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:58

      Yes, I think so. Maybe it was a cat?

      • 208 ladycheetah7 April 4, 2014 at 02:05

        If so that cat has talent

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 02:12

        But what if the professor did it? Do I have talent?

  19. 210 Angeline M April 3, 2014 at 14:38

    I’ve had a chat with the ICSU, and upon their advice I’ve enlarged the photo to investigate. The face is a creation of other worldly sorts that appears to be leaning against a paint can. My sleuthing assessment is that someone who shall go unnamed, but whose initials are P.VJ, was goofing off in the garage when he should have been working on a project of some kind.

    • 211 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:58

      *laughing too much* That’s too artistic for the professor! Wouldn’t you say?

    I agree! It’s Manly Man. Reminiscent of play dough though too. Depending on where it is located could be a bit haunting.

    • 229 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:56

      It’s outside the professor’s office door! Creepy, huh?

      • 230 Simply Skeptical April 4, 2014 at 11:13

        OOOO! If you have blinds close them! Hide lest it get you. hee, hee….

      • 231 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:29

        But I do have a katana you know.

  22. 232 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 3, 2014 at 13:54

    This face is a sign, Duke. Spring is here and you should get busy doing projects about the house. Now, you must not worry. The face will not talk or open its eyes. I met him once, he is hard, rough about the edges, closed off, and grey in color, but just by being near him one feels at peace. A true force to be recognized. When you’re done with him, I’d like him back. Please and thank you…

    • 233 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:54

      Ooo…is it a deathmask of the professor? Do you think? *laughing* It is a great description you use…but scary, too! What would you do with him? And the professor doesn’t spring clean!

      • 234 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 4, 2014 at 02:33

        Well, I’m not sure…who made this deathmask? I do think. I would talk to him and ask him lots of questions, offer him tea, sing to him, show him my poetry and then I’d paint him any color I wanted. Duke doesn’t sweep either…!

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:21

        Yes, I don’t! Well, this fellow might be dull company. How would you deal with that?

      • 236 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 4, 2014 at 15:47

        Haha!! He might be, but so might I.
        Deal with him being dull or you not spring cleaning or sweeping….?

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:59

        You are not!!!

        With him being dull. But you can answer both.

      • 238 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 4, 2014 at 19:58

        I could very well be, Duke. You don’t know, do you?!

        I would shine him up, take him somwhere for a sword fight and then get find his heartbeat. Probably give him a french maid costume and convience him it’s in his best interest to help out… *wishes she had a pillow*

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 12:57

        Oh yes I do!

        Hmm…. *hands her a mic stand instead*

      • 240 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 7, 2014 at 15:42

        How do you know. ..tell me, Duketh.

        Hmmm, *smirks* *warms her voice* Tisn’t fit for the PLF, Duke…

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:25

        From your poems, I think.

        It sure is! And for you…make a DS laugh!

      • 242 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 8, 2014 at 02:15

        Yeah, probably so.

        No, it isn’t. *laughs*

      • 243 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 22:47

        Rats, then.

      • 244 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 9, 2014 at 03:00

        It was such a good speech, too. You would have swept the village for me.

      • 245 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 18:32

        “I sweep village for no one!” (Said like Nappy.)

      • 246 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 9, 2014 at 19:48

        *laughs too loud for this crowded room* (I like his voice.)

      • 247 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 01:16

        Oh dear! I hope you didn’t get in trouble. Yes, I’ll have to get in touch with him again…

      • 248 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2014 at 01:34

        No, can’t happen. Aud’s the boss…
        Yes…you should.

      • 249 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 01:35

        The boss?

      • 250 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2014 at 01:43

        Yes, of the crowed room I was in earlier when you made me laugh.

      • 251 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 19:32

        I’m sorry! Did everyone stare you down?

      • 252 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2014 at 20:20

        Probably, but nothing to worry about.

      • 253 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 20:25

        We should beat them.

      • 254 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2014 at 20:51

        Or write them up for getting too involved in the boss’ business.

      • 255 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2014 at 18:08

        Haha! Yes, that’s much better. I do feel bad, though.

      • 256 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 11, 2014 at 20:12

        I don’t. You know I love when you make me laugh. I think it is often times when your responses are so totally unexpected and awesome, that I laugh the hardest. Just when I think we’ve set a pattern, you throw a curve ball.

      • 257 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2014 at 22:39

        *laughing* That’s what you do to me, dadblameit!

      • 258 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 12, 2014 at 00:42

        *really? smiles* We should stop that, maybe.

      • 259 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 12:38

        Well, should we?

      • 260 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 14, 2014 at 18:28

        No, probably not.

      • 261 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 18:35

        I agree!

      • 262 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 14, 2014 at 19:18

        *smiles*

  23. 263 Bethy April 3, 2014 at 13:51

    It looks like the a Princess breakfast! I make those faces on pancakes for her to eat and she thinks they look lovely!

    • 264 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:48

      *laughing lots* Princess is a character for sure! From now on, I’ll want that too. Would you do it for the professor?

      • 265 Bethy April 4, 2014 at 13:21

        Of course. I think I would have to find a cherry for the nose….

      • 266 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:35

        *laughing* That would be more than awesome!

      • 267 Bethy April 8, 2014 at 14:07

        I obviously couldn’t make a pancake for you without some sort of cherry!

      • 268 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 23:57

        *laughing* Yes! That would be awesome.

  24. 269 floridaborne April 3, 2014 at 13:41

    It looks like someone is having way too much fun with clay. :-)

    • 270 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:48

      Not the professor you think?

      • 271 floridaborne April 4, 2014 at 07:38

        I wouldn’t profess to know the professorish mind. :-)

      • 272 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:27

        Not even a bit?

      • 273 floridaborne April 4, 2014 at 21:19

        Not even an atom.

      • 274 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:14

        Well…and I always thought I was an open book…

  25. 275 Jackie April 3, 2014 at 13:36

    O_o

    • 276 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:47

      Do you suppose it boggling too?

      • 277 Jackie April 4, 2014 at 09:11

        I think it’s a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man selfie. 8-)

      • 278 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:28

        *laughing* What’s a selfie, Jackie?

      • 279 Jackie April 4, 2014 at 13:36

        You don’t know what a selfie is? That’s surprising! http://www.wordspy.com/words/selfie.asp

      • 280 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:37

        Oh…I see. Thanks, Jackie. Isn’t the professor surprising?

      • 281 Jackie April 4, 2014 at 13:41

        Yes indeed! You’re always full of surprises! :-)

      • 282 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:33

        That is professorish!

      • 283 Jackie April 4, 2014 at 19:14

        Yes it is!

      • 284 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 12:51

        That’s the spirit!

  26. 285 Susan P April 3, 2014 at 13:27

    Perhaps you should bring in an archeologist. Someone, say, like Harrison Ford. It kind of reminds me of something Doctor Who found one time.

    • 286 walt walker April 3, 2014 at 14:00

      Susan is on the right track. Is there a tribal presence nearby? If so, they may be trying to communicate. Harrison Ford would be an excellent resource. You should also bring in an anthropologist.

      • 287 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:56

        Now I’m scared. Do you think their motives are dastardly?

      • 288 walt walker April 4, 2014 at 12:44

        They could just be saying hello.

        They could also be hungry cannibals.

      • 289 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:29

        But how would you know the difference? That’s the problem!

      • 290 walt walker April 4, 2014 at 18:18

        Check to see if they are carrying knives and forks.

      • 291 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:08

        Maybe they hide that stuff up their sleeves. You know, secretive and all that jazz.

      • 292 walt walker April 4, 2014 at 20:42

        Yes, that could be a problem. You might have to bump into them and see if cutlery falls out of their sleeves.

      • 293 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:12

        *laughing* A perfect plan.

    • 294 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:44

      Wouldn’t you say the professor is like Indiana Jones? Doctor Who…what did he find?

      • 295 Susan P April 4, 2014 at 15:29

        Doctor Who has a sonic screwdriver. He doesn’t need to find anything.

        I don’t know about the Professor being like Ford. Has he ever found an ark?

      • 296 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:52

        Doctor Who is a bone-dead-alien.

        I found Noah’s ark.

      • 297 Susan P April 4, 2014 at 21:49

        He’s an alien, certainly. And kind of weird. But he makes me laugh.

        You found Noah’s Ark? You ARE old.

      • 298 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:22

        I sailed on it.

      • 299 Susan P April 7, 2014 at 17:48

        That means you are really old.

      • 300 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 01:45

        Yes. Don’t you think I am?

      • 301 Susan P April 8, 2014 at 12:25

        I’ve never seen you so I can’t speak to that question.

      • 302 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2014 at 23:15

        You would not agree. Unless you would.

      • 303 Susan P April 9, 2014 at 18:15

        Why?

      • 304 Professor VJ Duke April 9, 2014 at 18:58

        Well, because the professor is like Strider.

      • 305 Susan P April 10, 2014 at 17:21

        Where’s your horse?

      • 306 Professor VJ Duke April 10, 2014 at 20:14

        The Elves stole it.

      • 307 Susan P April 11, 2014 at 15:22

        You shouldn’t mess with Elves.

      • 308 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2014 at 18:57

        The professor is quicker than an elf!

      • 309 Susan P April 12, 2014 at 14:55

        Not faster than Galadriel.

      • 310 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 13:10

        She can’t run, dadblameit!

      • 311 Susan P April 14, 2014 at 14:28

        I disagree. That one can bust some moves.

      • 312 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2014 at 18:23

        With the tongue, maybe.

      • 313 Susan P April 14, 2014 at 20:44

        With her mirror.

      • 314 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2014 at 19:13

        *laughing* Hmm…you must explain that.

      • 315 Susan P April 15, 2014 at 20:49

        The Mirror of Galadriel needs no explaining.

      • 316 Professor VJ Duke April 16, 2014 at 01:02

        It scares me.

      • 317 Susan P April 17, 2014 at 20:09

        Don’t fall in.

      • 318 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 16:03

        You know, I’ve always wondered what would happen if one did.

      • 319 Susan P April 18, 2014 at 16:42

        You mean other than becoming more reflective?

      • 320 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 17:07

        *laughing* Yes. I bet death!

      • 321 Susan P April 18, 2014 at 17:13

        It’s been awhile since I last read it, but it needs a strong arm at the helm if I remember it.

      • 322 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 17:47

        Which is why we should give it to Hector.

      • 323 Susan P April 18, 2014 at 18:08

        By all means, then.

      • 324 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2014 at 18:09

        Now we have to find him.

      • 325 Susan P April 18, 2014 at 18:23

        Road trip!!!!

      • 326 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 12:54

        Yes, because his phone isn’t working properly.

      • 327 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 14:27

        Get him a couple of tin cans and wire.

      • 328 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:55

        I’ve gotta find him first, dadblameit!

      • 329 Susan P April 23, 2014 at 00:06

        Well, I’m fairly certain that finding Hector is your job.

      • 330 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:51

        Maybe he lives by you!

      • 331 Susan P April 23, 2014 at 17:47

        No, if he lived here his name would be Bubba.

      • 332 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 19:01

        That would lose him his warrior-ness.

      • 333 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 00:11

        Not in Florida it wouldn’t.

      • 334 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 13:07

        Oh yes it would!

      • 335 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 14:59

        Pish posh. You have NO idea. ;)

      • 336 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:14

        I have a professorish idea, dadblameit!

      • 337 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 18:46

        No doubt about that!

      • 338 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:56

        I admit: it’s flawed slightly.

      • 339 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 19:02

        We all are.

      • 340 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 19:04

        So true.

      • 341 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 19:18

        Twinkles.

      • 342 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 15:47

        Man!

      • 343 Susan P April 26, 2014 at 16:05

        I am not.

      • 344 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 16:18

        Well… I want do the twinkle thing.

      • 345 Susan P April 26, 2014 at 19:35

        What’s stopping you?

      • 346 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 19:00

        The inability to know if I’ve done it.

      • 347 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 14:10

        It twinkles best when you are unaware.

      • 348 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 15:17

        It should tell me. Would be the nice thing to do.

      • 349 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 16:34

        Oh, well that explains it all. The twinkling is for the benefit of the viewers, not the viewees

      • 350 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:15

        Which isn’t fair or right.

      • 351 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 19:41

        How so?

      • 352 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:46

        Well, I’d like to see it, dadblameit!

      • 353 walt walker April 4, 2014 at 18:22

        Or fixed a hyperdrive?

      • 354 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:08

        Did Ford really do that?

  27. 355 deanthefish April 3, 2014 at 13:26

    It looks like a face from a horror movie. Only knowing what it is has saved me from nightmares.

    • 356 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:44

      Mr. Fish, don’t scarier things exist in the depths of your heart?

  28. 357 FictionFan April 3, 2014 at 13:15

    It looks just like my imaginary picture of Manly-Man! Only with neater hair…

    • 358 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:43

      FEF! *laughing* MM? What if sees what you’ve called him?

      • 359 FictionFan April 4, 2014 at 16:44

        Oh, I’m not scared of MM! I’ll just hide behind the Professor…

      • 360 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:05

        Rats and a Heifer! Maybe an astroid. Can you imagine what might happen to me?

      • 361 FictionFan April 5, 2014 at 00:53

        Oh, my C-W-W could beat MM in any kind of fight! You should challenge him to a chess contest…

      • 362 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:25

        I could beat him there! But he’d refuse, I bet.

  29. 363 PorterGirl April 3, 2014 at 13:11

    Oh my! What is it? Look at the nose! Is it edible?! I’m not sure what to make of that. Could be a ghost, could be a cake!

    • 364 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:43

      A ghost or cake! Goodness me. Well…I don’t think it’s edible. I mean…would you try it?

      • 365 PorterGirl April 4, 2014 at 05:29

        Not if it looked at me like that. If it looked away I might try a nibble

      • 366 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:27

        *laughing* Oh, Lucy! You wouldn’t be scared. Maybe we should poke it first with the katana.

      • 367 PorterGirl April 4, 2014 at 14:00

        I think poking things first is a very sensible approach, actually. Yes – give it a good poke and see what happens!

      • 368 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:38

        Hope it doesn’t break the sword! *laughs*

      • 369 PorterGirl April 4, 2014 at 19:00

        !!!!!! Oh I hope so too !!!!!

      • 370 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:11

        Yes! that would be dadblamery.

  30. 371 E. April 3, 2014 at 13:06

    It looks vaguely like a peanut-butter cake to me… Which means it’s food, and should be eaten.

    • 372 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 01:42

      *laughing lots* E, that would be awesome. Should I try to eat it then?

      • 373 E. April 4, 2014 at 11:40

        If it’s food, and especially the tasty kind of food, then YES! Otherwise, no.

      • 374 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:29

        I suppose I should bring it in for further inspection, then?

      • 375 E. April 4, 2014 at 13:33

        Absolutely!
        Although the face itself kind of looks like Wilson the volleyball…. But in peanut-butter cake form.
        Mmmm cake.

      • 376 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 13:37

        It does, you’re right. Do you think Mr. Hanks might be coming for him?

      • 377 E. April 4, 2014 at 13:43

        Since its not a volleyball, I think it’s safe to say Mr. Hanks has other things on his mind, like Somalian pirates or whatever project he’s working on now.

      • 378 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 18:34

        Ooo, I wish I had Somalian pirates on my mind. Doesn’t that sound coolio?

      • 379 E. April 4, 2014 at 18:57

        It sounds stressful! But exciting, in a crazy sort of way.

      • 380 Professor VJ Duke April 4, 2014 at 19:11

        I bet there’d be swordfights!

      • 381 E. April 4, 2014 at 19:39

        It’s not swords so much as machine guns that concern me, haha. But I’m sure there would be treasure of some sort!

      • 382 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 12:53

        Treasure is worth a fight, too. But you should be worried about knives too!

      • 383 E. April 7, 2014 at 12:54

        Oooh, good call.

      • 384 Professor VJ Duke April 7, 2014 at 13:38

        I rarely make them, you know.

      • 385 E. April 7, 2014 at 13:43

        Then it’s all the better.

        I hope you’re right, for sure.

    That’s…that’s a one of a kind. The face looks…OK I too am baffled.

      *laughing* Right on, VQ. Definitely one of a kind. I’m baffled, too. Can’t we think of something that it looks like?

        Being the “pain in the butt little sister to a big meanie” I’d call it my brother. But seeing as you’ve not seen him, I’ll have to think of something else.
        Who knows…Maybe the face is secretly this door to some magical cave, leading into a private, untouched haven for only nymphs and seagulls to enjoy? And the face is made of cement, to try and ward off those who wish to explore – without prior permission.
        It’s invited you though..right?

        No, it hasn’t! What should I make of that?

        Oh botheration! Fear not; my invitation arrived in the post. I’ll sneak you in with me. It’ll be fine. If all fails, I’ll bribe an invitation for you using a flannel, a cookie and a paintbrush. Combined, it’ll all work out. Might need some paprika too, who knows….

        *laughing* I can’t begin to thank you enough, VQ…


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