Section A. Punchy Proverbs:

NOTE: The following proverbs were written by various members of the Salami family.

(1) If ya see a rabbit on the road it’s best ta kill it. ~ Daddy Salami [i.e. Take what comes your way.]

(2) The higher you bounce a ball, the higher it will go. ~ Ruber Salami

(3) A tortoise never beats a hare; slow and steady only wins the race when the race isn’t about running. ~ V. Shnodgrate (Not sure how he got in here, since he’s not a member of the Salami family.)

(4) The slower you drink the faster you’ll die. ~ Julliard Salami

(5) The major difference between a dictator and a king is that a dictator uses what he has. ~ Oregano Salami

Favorites, Punchy Family?

Section B. The professor speaks:

I’ve been puzzling professorishly over this picture for some time now. Is the water muddy, or just dirty with fish guts?

I forgot. Here is a truth universally acknowledged:

The professor can be mathematically explained. This is a wonder since his equation has yet to be discovered.

***

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

A short conversation:

BUD PARKER: Hey, bud, what’s up?

KING ARTHUR: I’m a king. Please refer to me as your kingship.

BUD PARKER: Now, bud, that just sounds a bit wrong. I mean, can I really call you Kingship?

KING ARTHUR: You’re being dull on purpose. And that’s maddening. Just call me King Arthur.

BUD PARKER: Sure, bud King Arthur.

KING ARTHUR: You’re hopeless.

BUD PARKER: And you’re the king, bud.

***

Section D. Hearing from Nicholas Warren

Nicholas Warren is a creative writer for the PL. His stories and ideas appear in many Punchy skits, stories, and parodies.

***

The professor and I met a while ago. But he doesn’t want me to tell you how—so just know that we know each other and that I work with him. Normally, most of the work done at the Punchy Lands blog is done by the professor, but every once in a while, when he’s feeling depressed, tired, lazy, un-professorish, or anything else, he’ll have me come in to help him. That help pretty much amounts to aiding in writing stories, skits, or in brainstorming where to take the blog.

Now, just in case you’re questioning my legitimacy in aiding the professor in his Punchyish duties, let me say I have a lot experience in these matters. I have spoken to and interacted with, on in-depth levels, almost all of the characters of the PL. It’s…dangerous.

Anyways, that’s about all—at least all I can tell. Hope it cleared some things up.

~ Nicholas Warren

Section E. 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.)

    Number two is very logical! Think I’ll go with that one.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:22

      *laughing* It is logical! I do wonder if he means anything more by it, though.

      • 3 Catherine April 24, 2014 at 01:03

        Could be…I was never very good at double meanings and stuff like that.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:54

        Me neither. It’s gardoobling!

      • 5 Catherine April 25, 2014 at 02:29

        Haha I like that word, too! Dadblame double meanings! (Hehe I think this is the first time I’ve used “dadblame”.)

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 13:09

        Haha! Congrats on that! Love when you use PA, you know. And they are dadblamery, those double meanings!

      • 7 Catherine April 26, 2014 at 01:07

        Thanks! Quite an accomplishment, I know :D

        Can’t stand ’em! The world would be a better place without them. But maybe that’s just me…

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 16:12

        Haha!

        No, me too! I think it’s because I always miss them.

      • 9 Catherine April 26, 2014 at 16:41

        Same. And then sometimes I imagine them where they’re not! So confusing.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 18:48

        Haha! We should declare war on them.

      • 11 Catherine April 27, 2014 at 23:28

        Good idea! We have the weapons.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 14:45

        But no lightsabers. I’ve always wanted one.

      • 13 Catherine April 29, 2014 at 00:18

        Ooh, me too! Sadly, that’s one thing we may never get :(

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 17:48

        What color would you take?

      • 15 Catherine April 30, 2014 at 05:04

        I rather fancy the red, because it looks the most dangerous! But if that’s unavailable I’d take green.

        And you?

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke April 30, 2014 at 16:02

        Red then purple!

      • 17 Catherine May 1, 2014 at 05:19

        Ah yes…you’d be famous with a purple one. The second in history!

        But red has been unanimously voted the best.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 13:04

        Yes, red is a wonder.

        Wasn’t Mace cool?

      • 19 Catherine May 2, 2014 at 13:55

        Oh, yes. He was a-mace-ing! :D

        (Sorry. Couldn’t resist!)

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 20:50

        *laughing lots* Okay, that was really well done.

      • 21 Catherine May 3, 2014 at 05:04

        Haha I’ve been waiting to use that for years! Thank you!

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2014 at 19:04

        *laughing* You’re welcome!

  2. 23 Bethy April 22, 2014 at 14:43

    Terribly interesting proverbs this week. I am not sure if I have a favorite.
    As for the picture I think that it might just be after a storm. The sea seems to e many moods and changes colors at will. It always looks cranky colored during a storm.

    • 24 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:25

      You must pick #3! *laughs*

      *laughing lots* Cranky colored is just awesome. Hahaha! I agree.

      • 25 Bethy May 5, 2014 at 10:34

        cranky colored is awesome. *smile* I’m proud of myself for coming up with it. I should name Crayola crayons!

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 13:10

        You should! I think it’s the new color of the professor.

      • 27 Bethy May 5, 2014 at 17:15

        Really? You are Cranky colored? Hmm. That doesn’t sound like a pleasant thing.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 18:15

        Well, I can’t tell what it looks like actually.

      • 29 Bethy May 7, 2014 at 10:55

        Well cranky colored might mean you are cranky and sometimes it is not much fun to hang around cranky people.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:21

        Cranky must mean something else in professorish then…

      • 31 Bethy May 8, 2014 at 10:19

        can you come up with a definition?

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:50

        I cannot, dadblameit!

      • 33 Bethy May 9, 2014 at 10:35

        Warts and Popcorn

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:41

        *laughing*

  3. 35 L. Marie April 22, 2014 at 11:05

    Though I would have gone with number 3, I have to go with Daddy Salami’s quote. He’s scary, so it’s always best to vote for him.
    Nice to meet Nicholas.
    Bud Parker likes to get the last word, huh? Like Mr. Ratherquite. I can’t say I feel sorry for King Arthur.
    As for the water, well, it looks polluted all right. Ugh.

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:24

      Make him happy. I see what you mean.

      He’s a great chap.

      No, KA deserved it, for sure. I wonder if Parker would beat Mr. R now…

      With chocolate, I’ll bet.

  4. 37 bardictale April 22, 2014 at 09:49

    Number 3, which is clever.
    The water is probably muddy, in my experience. DId you check?

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:24

      I love that one, too.

      I did not! How should I?

      • 39 bardictale April 22, 2014 at 16:04

        By going there of course!
        Or asking the fish to do it for you.

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:34

        I’ll have to go, then!

      • 41 bardictale April 23, 2014 at 03:27

        Good luck^^

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:29

        Thank you, Bard.

  5. 43 PorterGirl April 22, 2014 at 07:36

    Wow, the Salami family have some strange proverbs! I feel a bit sorry for the rabbits, but I suppose he has a point. Especially if they are chocolate! :)Number 3 is quite sensible.

    That water looks angry. Maybe it is angry because it is muddy? I would keep a distance from it, just in case.

    How nice to meet Nicholas! A charming fellow, I’m sure. What a lucky chap to be helping the Professor :)

    • 44 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:23

      Now chocolate rabbits are quite tasty. Yes, that as my favorite, too.

      Yes, I suppose it could suck one in, huh?

      I think I’m the lucky one!

  6. 45 icedmocha34 April 21, 2014 at 23:35

    Kill rabbits? OK, that’s just sad…and on Easter, too!!

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:05

      That’s Daddy Salami for you. I’ve never been able to catch one, have you?

      • 47 icedmocha34 April 22, 2014 at 23:13

        Never wanted to. I like chameleons and cats better.

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:46

        You catch chameleons? Coolio!

      • 49 icedmocha34 April 23, 2014 at 00:47

        Yeah…at Petsmart.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:55

        Now that’s a wonder. I should think you’d like a ferret.

      • 51 icedmocha34 April 23, 2014 at 00:56

        What? Should I be insulted???

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:57

        I don’t see why. Should you be?

      • 53 icedmocha34 April 23, 2014 at 00:58

        Yeah…why ferrets?

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 01:13

        Aren’t they coolio?

      • 55 icedmocha34 April 23, 2014 at 01:26

        Eh~no. Chameleons are cooler, and cats are the bomb!

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:18

        I can’t believe you don’t like ferrets! Hmm…that’s a wonder.

      • 57 icedmocha34 April 23, 2014 at 19:12

        Ferrets are creepy and evil and mean.

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

        Like the professor. At least, they’re not purple.

      • 59 icedmocha34 April 25, 2014 at 01:11

        Eh…

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 13:08

        Hmm… Huff-Hum to you madam!

  7. 61 Simply Skeptical April 21, 2014 at 17:25

    #2 shows Ruber Salami’s brain power isn’t his Daddy proud? #4 again highlights the brightness of the Salami genes. AND of course whom but a Salami would be a pro on the topic of dictators vs kings? Yep, for sure an interesting cleverish mean bunch.
    It was so nice hearing from Mr. Warren. Glad the professor has assistance with his multi-faceted days in the PL.
    Love the ocean picture. I believe the darkness is just the shadows of the angle, yes?

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:09

      Really? Do you really think that? So, you must have liked Shnods the best, then!

      Oh yes, lots of assistance, when I want it.

      Really? Not chocolate?

  8. 63 Julie Harris April 21, 2014 at 17:03

    The proverbs are ponderous… I liked the ocean picture very much- until I thought of the idea of dirty fish guts.

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:07

      Yes, I’m still pondering some of them.

      I know! Isn’t that awful?

  9. 65 FictionFan April 21, 2014 at 16:59

    The good thing about seeing the Salamis’ choices is that it actually makes Shnoddy look almost sensible for once.

    It’s a picture from a planet where the seas are made out of hot chocolate.

    I think we all know the Professor’s equation – 1+1=3.

    Nice to hear from Nicholas. Is he a friend of Mic’s too?

    • 66 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 18:59

      Good one, FF!

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:09

        I don’t see why!

      • 68 Susan P April 23, 2014 at 00:07

        Maybe it’s your rose tinted glasses.?

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:52

        Mine are black.

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

        ‘Cause you are cool?

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 19:02

        Yeah! *smiles bigly*

      • 72 Susan P April 24, 2014 at 02:42

        I knew that.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:56

        But how?

      • 74 Susan P April 24, 2014 at 23:53

        The Shadow Knows…

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 12:50

        Maybe knows the professor.

      • 76 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 14:47

        I would have to see it to believe it.

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:03

        Me too. *laughs*

      • 78 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 18:28

        Ha!

    • 79 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:07

      I should write a proverb next time. Shnod’s very wise, you know. BUS may be wiser, though.

      Oh that would be horrid. Would you go for a swim?

      *laughing* Can’t it be more complicated, please?

      Well, yes. He’s part of the studio team.

      • 80 FictionFan April 21, 2014 at 23:15

        BUS is far too wise to compete with Shnoddy.

        Hmm…I’m not sure even my love for chocolate goes that far, but I’d probably try it once just to find out.

        OK – how about P = m(i)c2 then? That’s realtively complicated…

        The studio must be huge…

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:03

        And the professor might not be.

        I know. Something horrible odd about that. (That’s how I always felt when I saw Wonka’s chocolate waterfall.)

        *laughing lots* I admit: That’s just awesome. You got me. Hahaha!

        No, no too big.

      • 82 FictionFan April 22, 2014 at 18:04

        But once the Professor has read all the books in his TBR he’ll be just as wise as BUS…

        (D’you know, I’ve never seen Willy Wonka – or read it. Isn’t that odd?)

        *smiles* Yes, I was quite proud of that myself – though less so when I noticed I’d spelled relatively wrongly… *blushes*

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:35

        Funny you should say that. I was told that once before…something similar to that, at least.

        (Really? I’m astounded! Well…we must fix this. Let’s rent it.)

        *laughing* I didn’t notice. I’m too dull.

      • 84 FictionFan April 23, 2014 at 13:09

        Oh? Well I’ll try to be more original in future… *winks*

        (But…would I like it? I’m not sure…)

        You can’t be dull if you have your own equation.

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:39

        Oh, I think you’re very original.

        (I’m not sure either. I hate it, so I’d try not to influence you at all.)

        That’s true. But you discovered it! I should write it down, I think…

      • 86 FictionFan April 23, 2014 at 22:43

        *smiles in an original way*

        (I’m glad ‘cos from any clips I’ve seen I’ve always assumed I’d hate it. Let’s rent something else…)

        You should!

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:49

        *smiles like FEF*

        (Okay…how about Casablanca?)

        Okay…can I put it in my bio?

      • 88 FictionFan April 24, 2014 at 18:01

        (Oooh, yes! I love Casablanca! One of my top favourite films of all time – I’m so boringly mainstream in my tastes, aren’t I? – especially the bit where they all sing La Marseillaise!)

        *laughing* If you like…

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:12

        (Haha! Awesome then. You are not! I respect all of your tastes. Except for… )

        Hmm…you don’t like the idea.

      • 90 FictionFan April 25, 2014 at 14:50

        (…you’ll learn to love Darby one day…)

        Haha! Yes, I love the idea! But I thought you were joking…

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:06

        (Which might depress you…or would, I suppose.)

        Okay, then! My favorite part is the times 2. It means I’m twice Mic!

      • 92 FictionFan April 25, 2014 at 22:48

        (Interesting! And possibly most insightful…)

        At least!

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 15:58

        I’m gardoobled the sudden.

        4 times~!

      • 94 FictionFan April 26, 2014 at 19:17

        Good!

        10 to the power of infinity…!!!

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 18:57

        I dont’ see why!

        Poor Mic.

    • 96 deanthefish April 22, 2014 at 00:55

      It is but Nick can still barely fit in it.

      • 97 FictionFan April 22, 2014 at 01:25

        Bubbles!!! You are soooo wicked…

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:06

        *laughing lots*

  10. 99 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 16:56

    oh wow… Daddy Salami is not very nice at all. (Poor rabbits. :-P I’d rather that he not hit them with the car or bike or whatever he’s been using. Can’t he just catch them and wring their necks instead? It’s more humane and less bloodthirsty.)
    I think the water’s dirty because it ate a tsunami. :-P

    • 100 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:06

      But wouldn’t it hurt more to get one’s neck…wringed about?

      *laughing* I threw my chocolate in there, you know.

      • 101 erinkenobi2893 April 21, 2014 at 21:33

        Maybe. But they’re animals, and I’m not really an animal rights activist… besides, it’s less alarming than having a car bearing down on you (especially if you don’t die.)
        Oh, indeed?

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:54

        Very true. Very true. Well, he’s just a vicious sort of human. If he’s human.

        Yes, I did! What do you make of it?

      • 103 erinkenobi2893 April 22, 2014 at 15:05

        What else would he be if he isn’t human???
        Was it dark chocolate? (On a side note, do you prefer dark or milk? I like dark chocolate, myself.)

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:26

        Well, you know, it’s said he has some Punchy in him.

        No, it was milk. And I prefer milk, actually. How about white?

      • 105 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 12:57

        Oh. I’m glad he’s not a full Punchy though. Imagine the disaster! (Just like I’m glad Anakin’s not a Punchy. Even MORE destruction.) :-P
        White chocolate? Well, it’s okay, but I only really love it when it’s in one of those Hershey cookies’n’cream bars. They’re one of the only really delicious things Hershey puts out, in my opinion.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:35

        Haha! Yes, that would be awful both ways. Anakin was good in the end, remember.

        Yes, that’s it. Those bars are awesome. And I agree. I prefer other chocolate, I think.

      • 107 erinkenobi2893 April 23, 2014 at 19:08

        Indeed! And yes, but I don’t like angsty dark Anakin. I mean, seriously?! Obi-Wan lost as much as–or maybe more–than you did, Anakin, and he’s not moaning to everybody who will listen or throwing temper tantrums. Just suck it up!
        I wish that it were possible to take Anakin and Obi-Wan out and give them a different ending… because they’re really great as a team, but Anakin straight up is horrible. :-P Besides, he and Obi-Wan are best friends, even if their personalities do rub each other the wrong way from time to time. (I think it’s just that Obi-Wan is not going to be as obvious as Anakin wants; he’s far too proud to wear his heart on his sleeve. And Anakin loves his secrets too much, besides being willing to sacrifice the good of of the many for the good of one, which rankles Obi-Wan too… I think pride and arrogance are really different; Obi-Wan is proud in the sense that he’s not going to act needy around anyone; he’s almost the classic aristocrat maintaining the family honor. :-P Anakin is more overconfident and all over the place; I’d call him more arrogant. :-P)

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:08

        Yes, I agree pretty much with everything you said. I think it pained Obi-Wan to have to fight Anakin. Anakin seemed to enjoy it, though.

      • 109 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 14:12

        Well, Obi-Wan was sort of in denial, I think. He didn’t want to believe that Anakin had gone dark, or did all those horrible things. Anakin, though, had gone completely bonkers and lost it, believing things that just weren’t true, and that, if he’d looked at them reasonably, would obviously have seemed lame and half-baked. Of course, though, he has to act like an immature, hormone-hyped teenager. Grrr.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 15:01

        I know…grr indeed. But on the bright side, he did come back and save the balance of things.

      • 111 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 15:31

        Yes, he did… in the end. But I still think Luke and Obi-Wan always had a better handle on life. :-P

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 22:58

        Luke?! Oh he did not!

      • 113 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:01

        Well, at least by the time of Return of the Jedi, he did. :-P

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:29

        That’s true. He got better.

      • 115 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:31

        He did… But yeah, Obi-Wan was a lot better adjusted than any of the Skywalkers, even Leia!

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:39

        Leia was a mess, I think!

      • 117 erinkenobi2893 April 24, 2014 at 23:56

        Not so much as Anakin though! X-D

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 13:00

        That’s true. Very true.

      • 119 erinkenobi2893 April 25, 2014 at 16:34

        Actually, if Leia seemed a little needy… I don’t think so. It’s just that she was far from home, and so forth…

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:26

        She was not! Wasn’t she traveling about?

      • 121 erinkenobi2893 April 25, 2014 at 22:59

        Yes… but there were lots of things going on… and I’m also not a big Leia/Han shipper. Just to give you a little forewarning. :-P

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 16:05

        Me neither, actually.

      • 123 erinkenobi2893 April 26, 2014 at 17:10

        Yeah… *embarrassed mumble* I write more friendship than romance… and I absolutely love Obi-Wan and Siri friendship… I couldn’t write good romance to save my life. It would be clean, but it would be poorly written.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 18:50

        You’re more of an adventurer–which I love about you. And you’re a warrior, which is cool.

      • 125 erinkenobi2893 April 27, 2014 at 19:53

        Thanks. :-)
        Oops, I accidentally watched a Starkiller/Galen Marek tribute on YouTube. The guy has me totally out-awesomed. :-P Not that I’m jealous. Oh, and it’s freaky because Obi-Wan’s best friend is named Garen Muln. See the similarity in the names?

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 14:37

        Haha, I do. I’ve never heard of Garen Muln. I think you’re a powerful Jedi, too.

      • 127 erinkenobi2893 April 28, 2014 at 22:23

        Garen Muln is Obi-Wan’s best friend and (at least back when Obi-Wan was a Padawan) looked enough like him to be mistaken for him– though not as nearly like him as Basil Kastrilley, Obi-Wan’s first cousin, who was also a Jedi (and who I made up because I thought it would be fun. :-P ) Currently, though, I think Garen is at least 6′, has darker, curlier hair, and no beard ( :-P ).
        Thanks. :-P

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 17:40

        Well, the early Obi-Wan didn’t have a beard either.

      • 129 erinkenobi2893 April 29, 2014 at 17:45

        X-P
        True. (But he’s kind of disconcerting with or without it, and I think Garen is less stern and a little more genial.)

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 18:03

        Hmm. I see.

      • 131 erinkenobi2893 April 30, 2014 at 14:06

        Not to be unfair to Garen, but he’s also slightly less experienced… though I think it translates to being a little more weather-worn on Obi-Wan’s part, really.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke April 30, 2014 at 16:08

        Yes, maybe. But Obi-Wan doesn’t seem so.

      • 133 erinkenobi2893 May 1, 2014 at 14:34

        Well… what I’m trying to say is… well, it’s sort of the measure of difference between Aragorn and Faramir, if you know what I mean.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 20:03

        Yes, yes, I do know what you mean.

      • 135 erinkenobi2893 May 2, 2014 at 12:00

        Good. I was starting to fear that I was making no sense whatsoever.

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 13:05

        Oh, that only happens to me…

      • 137 erinkenobi2893 May 2, 2014 at 13:16

        Mmm… it seems to happen to Merlin too… :-P

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 20:45

        The PL Merlin? All the time! But we’re different!

      • 139 erinkenobi2893 May 3, 2014 at 14:41

        Not everyone can be coherent all the time. :-P

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2014 at 19:12

        That’s a good point.

      • 141 erinkenobi2893 May 3, 2014 at 19:56

        I mean, Obi-Wan can (unless Anakin drugs him, but thank heaven that’s a rare occurrence,) but precious few other people make sense all the time. Indeed, I have known some people who talk and talk and talk all the time, and speak nothing but nonsense! *glares at the people who made fun of me for being a SW geek*

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 12:48

        *nods* Definitely. The professor wouldn’t do that to you.

      • 143 erinkenobi2893 May 5, 2014 at 15:02

        :-) Thanks, I am deeply grateful. People who talk but have nothing to say should be gagged and placed in insane asylums. :-P

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 18:11

        Exactly right! They’re a wonder, they are.

      • 145 erinkenobi2893 May 5, 2014 at 23:56

        *ties Anakin up and leaves him in a closet* He was offending my high-IQ sensibilities. :-P
        (My IQ lies in the “Gifted” range… 0_0)

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:48

        *laughs* He deserves it.

      • 147 erinkenobi2893 May 6, 2014 at 13:13

        Yes, he does. :-P

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:44

        *nods*

  11. 149 desertdweller29 April 21, 2014 at 16:32

    Is it a coincidence that #3 makes the most sense and is given by someone NOT of the Salami family? I think not… Have a great day, Professor!

    • 150 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:01

      It makes perfect sense! You too!

  12. 151 ladycheetah7 April 21, 2014 at 16:25

    For the proverbs- #1 Daddy Salami has a God complex and thinks he has power over life and death. I guess we just have to accept him where he is…PL psychopath. #2- isn’t that like common sense?; #3- Schnodgrate’s proverbs are always on point; #- umerah….not sure what that means, unless it is a social cue at a bar. Strangely, the last proverb appeals to me. I think a dictator is more “hands on” than a king with EVERYTHING and EVERYONE. Nothing off limits. I think DS would be a good dictator. Perhaps OS was talking about DS…..

    • 152 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:00

      He’s only a psychopath sometimes, wouldn’t you agree?

      I love your take on the proverbs–as usual. Shnods is the best, I agree.

      And OS could be. I think he has control over DS, don’t you?

      • 153 ladycheetah7 April 21, 2014 at 21:04

        I don’t remember DS & OS going against each other so hard to tell who might have control over who. DS is ALWAYS psychotic. It’s in his PL DNA

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:21

        I think you have a point there. We should do another skit with the Salami family, I think.

      • 155 ladycheetah7 April 21, 2014 at 21:47

        That would be interesting.

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:00

        It would be! But I’m doing that Work Place Conflict this week!

  13. 157 Painting Pundit April 21, 2014 at 16:18

    The Salamis are definitely their usual selves. I can see DS killing poor little helpless bunnies. He has to prove his meanness somehow. Ruber is an idiot, of course, but a lovable one. I don’t recall meeting Oregano S. before. Is he an idiot, like Ruber or a villain like DS?

    I would like to borrow Bud whenever I feel the need to take someone down a peg. Anyone demanding to be treated like a king, needs Bud to bring a dose of reality in. Does he hire out?

    Nice to meet Nicholas!

    • 158 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:59

      He’s more sensible, I think. He was in one skit before some time ago. You’d like him better, I think. Poor Ruber. He just said the first think that came to his mind.

      *laughs* I’m sure he would. He’s awesome at it, isn’t he?

      Yes!

  14. 159 Debbie April 21, 2014 at 15:49

    I could NEVER kill a bunny! I think proverb #2 makes the most sense of this batch. 33 is okay, but #4 is awful. Makes no sense, no matter how I try to wrap my brain around it.
    I do love your new background, Professor.
    As for the “dirty” waves, I think it’s sea bottom sandy stuff that gets picked up and rolled in the moving water. Logical, don’t you agree?

    • 160 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:58

      Now, what do you like about #2? I’m very curious.

      Many thanks, Debbie!

      I do. With fish guts?

  15. 161 Jackie April 21, 2014 at 15:34

    A fibro fog has descended onto my brain so I don’t have much to say except that I like #3. Maybe it’s because my thoughts are obscured by fog that I like it above all the others. I don’t know and I don’t care. All I know is very soon I’m going to go outside and stare at nature for awhile. Have a good day, Professor!

    • 162 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:57

      You have an awesome day too, Jackie!

  16. 163 Tonia April 21, 2014 at 15:33

    that picture aint muddy. somebody dropped a load of chocolate into the ocean (accidently, of course; who in their right mind would give away their chocolate) ..and the waves are whipping up a frosty drink.

    • 164 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:57

      The professor would give up his chocolate! What do you think of that?

      • 165 Tonia April 21, 2014 at 21:35

        the professor doesnt know it is good for his heart. Ok, pass it to me me then. :)

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:56

        The professor has not a heart!

      • 167 Tonia April 22, 2014 at 20:56

        *gulp. That explains all that violent stuff he’s been composing. Shizuh..i am outta here. :)

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:43

        I see the stories, you know.

      • 169 Tonia April 21, 2014 at 21:42

        does the professor not hav a sweet tooth? That would be a problem at my house. I live in a candy- coated cookie cottage. :)

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:59

        Wowawee! Oh no, I’ve got one. Chocolate just isn’t my favorite. I love other…stuff!

  17. 171 Angeline M April 21, 2014 at 15:08

    Thank you for starting my Monday with Salamiisms….makes my day, all of them, except how did Shnodgrate get in there? Julliard isn’t around much that I’ve noticed of late, so I’ll vote for #4 and drink a little faster.
    I prefer not to think upon fish guts, but let’s not muddy the waters.
    Nicholas Warren, a nom de plume for sure…who is hiding behind this name? Hmmm????

    • 172 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:57

      You’re welcome! I think we should do a skit with Julliard in it, huh? Shnod…the man crept in. Do you suppose it was evil of him?

      Hahaha! You might swim in there, though.

      That is his name. Why would you doubt it?

      • 173 Angeline M April 21, 2014 at 23:53

        Definitely a skit with Julliard in it…and Ruber! *doing the Salami laugh*.
        No evil on Shnod’s part..he is who he is.
        Why would I doubt his name? Because that has a PL twist to it…it sounds too normal, so he becomes very suspect in my mind.

      • 174 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:05

        I’ll put it on the schedule, then! We’ll add OS, as well!

        I think you could be definitely right.

        You don’t doubt my name, do you?

  18. 175 Louise B. Leger April 21, 2014 at 14:47

    What an interesting picture

    • 176 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:56

      It is! Would you swim in there?

      • 177 Louise B. Leger April 22, 2014 at 01:54

        Probably not lol. regardless of what it is it doesnt look too swimmable

      • 178 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:06

        I know! It would make one feel Yucketh for sure!

  19. 179 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 21, 2014 at 14:15

    I love number 3 very much, Duke. (reminds me of a poem) Schnoddy is always welcome to give his proverb, is he not? *waits while she crosses her arms and taps her toes* 5 is truer than true, sadly. 2 just makes me giggle all over again, blue balls bouncing into trees, too.

    That picture is muddy, sandy and has fish guts. Growdie. The picture is beautiful, however. Discovering your code would take millions of years, I’m afraid.

    Kingship is a cool name. I can’t hear Bud using it, however. *laughs*

    Hello, Nicholas Warren and thank you for being such a dear friend to our professor. The two of you make a fine team.

    • 180 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:49

      I like #3. Tis my favorite. I always hated that saying. Anyway… Yes, I suppose he is. He’s a wise chap, you know. Blue Balls?! *runs away*

      Now would you swim in there? Yes, my code is simple.

      You know, I couldn’t either? *laughs*

      (And there’s more on the team, you know.)

      • 181 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 21, 2014 at 20:56

        Your favorite hated saying…that sounds about right for you, Duketh. He is wise, I think. Bouncing blue balls for professors who try to chase them.

        No, I don’t like the yicky water. Simple is as simple does, I say.

        Haha. I wanna hear it, though.

        (No, I didn’t know…why would I know.)

      • 182 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:19

        Well, I’m glad that Shnod ripped it, you see. I won’t try to chase one ever again.

        I don’t either. Simple is actually complicated.

        Should Bud be in a skit soon?

        (They’re all laid out on the site, you know.)

      • 183 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 21, 2014 at 21:38

        Yes, so am I. But I like watching you play ball, Duke.

        *smiles cause we’re the same* Yes, don’t I know it.

        Does he have a job. Has one been earned?

        (Well, that I do know.)

      • 184 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 13:59

        You mean banging my head, dadblameit!

        It’s real dadblamery. But also laughable!

        Well, whenever I call him up, I’m sure he’ll be fine with it.

        (It’s a wonder, I know.)

      • 185 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 22, 2014 at 15:50

        Okay, I’ll stop.

        *smiles at you*

        So powerful, Duketh.

        (Tis)

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:34

        Powerful? Yes, like Hector, I think.

      • 187 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 23, 2014 at 02:29

        That is much power, I’d say. How do you manage it?

      • 188 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 18:22

        You have to tire it out constantly.

      • 189 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 23, 2014 at 19:52

        Really? How do you do it?

      • 190 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:13

        Push-ups!

      • 191 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 24, 2014 at 19:14

        Let me put a piece of cherry pie under your chest, as inspiration. Don’t smash it!

      • 192 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 23:18

        Oh boy! *laughing*

      • 193 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 25, 2014 at 02:46

        *laughs with you* Keep going…

      • 194 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 13:15

        *smashes the pie*

      • 195 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 25, 2014 at 19:37

        Wow, I’m super impressed with you ability to do one handed push ups. No need to smash the pie with your fist, Duke. I can see how talented you are. No need to show off.

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 15:54

        I actually can’t do one of those yet. I should be able to. But the idea of bending only one arm messes with my head.

      • 197 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 26, 2014 at 21:17

        I don’t want you messing with your head, please. Just keep doing them with both arms.

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 19:05

        I think I should quit before the biceps brachii cracks.

      • 199 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 27, 2014 at 23:34

        Yes, please.

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 14:48

        Definitely.

      • 201 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 28, 2014 at 19:22

        I can’t even pretend to know what those are, but I’d love it if you didn’t hurt them, Duke.

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:34

        *laughing lots* Oh! I thought you knew. It’s a muscle. When you ‘show someone your muscle’ that’s the one. It’s the antagonist of the tricep.

      • 203 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 28, 2014 at 19:43

        Oh! It’s a nice one, thanks for showing me.
        (Is there nothing you do not know?)

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:47

        Well, lots, of course. I’ve just thought about studying medicine, so I’ve studied a bunch of medicine. That sort of thing just doesn’t sound right.

      • 205 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 28, 2014 at 19:55

        Ahh, sounds difficult to me. Do you think you will? Study medicine, that is? What doesn’t sound right?

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 20:12

        Well, it’s sorta too late…sort of. I’m not sure. It’s a wonder I do what I do.

      • 207 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 28, 2014 at 20:17

        I understand the sorta too late. I think about that sometimes, too. For me too, you know.

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 20:28

        Really?

      • 209 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 28, 2014 at 20:36

        Yes, really.

      • 210 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 17:22

        I think I see.

      • 211 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 29, 2014 at 19:26

        You see nothing, I am quite sure.

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2014 at 22:00

        Haha! Welly well.

      • 213 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 30, 2014 at 00:40

        Well well well well….

      • 214 Professor VJ Duke April 30, 2014 at 15:54

        There’s a whole family of ‘wells’ there.

      • 215 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 30, 2014 at 20:10

        I wonder if they’re nice people…

      • 216 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 12:56

        They’re my favorites!

      • 217 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 1, 2014 at 15:41

        Well this is something!

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 20:11

        Well it is!

      • 219 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 1, 2014 at 20:22

        Well introduce me..

      • 220 Professor VJ Duke May 1, 2014 at 20:29

        Well I won’t!

      • 221 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 1, 2014 at 20:41

        Well why not? I’m nice…

      • 222 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 12:46

        They might get nasty.

      • 223 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 2, 2014 at 18:18

        Nasty, because I’m with you, or because you’ve done something to them…

      • 224 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2014 at 21:06

        Well, I’m always picking on them something awfully awful.

      • 225 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 3, 2014 at 05:08

        Shock of the century!!

      • 226 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2014 at 19:08

        I know, right?!

      • 227 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 3, 2014 at 20:11

        :) I do like that you tease a lot of the time. Smile worthy, for sure.

      • 228 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 12:54

        That’s my wicked side, I think.

      • 229 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 5, 2014 at 13:33

        Yes, it is. Mine, too.

      • 230 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 17:34

        I see.

      • 231 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 5, 2014 at 19:13

        Said the blind man.

      • 232 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2014 at 23:21

        If he’s lucky!

      • 233 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 5, 2014 at 23:46

        Is he lucky?

      • 234 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 12:39

        I think he could be!

      • 235 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 13:55

        You really do?

      • 236 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 15:49

        Yes. Don’t you?

      • 237 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 6, 2014 at 19:10

        I think so, too. *smiles* I love how your mind works, Duketh.

      • 238 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2014 at 23:13

        It works like a clog.

      • 239 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 00:02

        Whatever

      • 240 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:03

        I see what you mean.

      • 241 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 19:56

        Yes, I don’t like it when you talk horribly about yourself.

      • 242 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:44

        Rats. Well, I’m a super beast then. Is that a tab better?

      • 243 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 01:49

        It’s a start…Super sexy beast may sound a little more like you’re trying. *laughs*

      • 244 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:35

        *gets on his chariot*

      • 245 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 14:57

        Wonders why he’s leaving me… *decides she won’t go along because he never made it to the lions last time*

      • 246 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:11

        I don’t think that’s a very professorish word!

      • 247 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:15

        Which one??

      • 248 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:17

        The one I can’t say!

      • 249 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:25

        There is a word you cannot say? I’m so confused.

      • 250 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:55

        There is! It’s unprofessorish.

      • 251 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 19:17

        You just said unprofessorish…I think you’re in trouble now.

      • 252 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:12

        Oh no! Why?

      • 253 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 02:42

        Cause you can’t say that, right?

      • 254 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:37

        Umm…yes… Oh dear!

      • 255 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 21:02

        *smiles* Are you sure..you seem wishy washy.

      • 256 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:45

        The professor is always wishy washy, madam!

      • 257 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 12, 2014 at 19:25

        Yes. This I know.

      • 258 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:11

        You do not, dadblameit!

      • 259 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 03:01

        You just pulled an Audith! ( I do too know…I’ve had enough converations with you to know when you’re backing away.)

      • 260 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:59

        *runs away*

      • 261 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 13:44

        No sprinting….it’s raining!!!

      • 262 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:03

        If you sprint fast enough you can escape the rain drops.

      • 263 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 14, 2014 at 19:48

        I don’t sprint in the rain, we’ve been through this already. I prefer to walk under an umbrella. *wonders if you sprint THAT fast*

      • 264 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:40

        A sword umbrella, maybe.

      • 265 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 15, 2014 at 13:43

        No thanks.

      • 266 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:03

        Why not?

      • 267 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 19:15

        Fine…you’re holding it, you know.

      • 268 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 23:12

        Oh no…take it, please.

      • 269 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 23:44

        *gives you the leary eye* I don’t believe you.

      • 270 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 19:50

        No tricks, I promise!

      • 271 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:27

        No tricks to what? *testing you*

      • 272 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:49

        Well… I’m caught, aren’t I?

      • 273 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:53

        Yes!

      • 274 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:53

        Help!

      • 275 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:59

        No…you must answer me.

      • 276 Professor VJ Duke May 19, 2014 at 14:44

        All I did was hand you the sword umbrella.

      • 277 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 19, 2014 at 19:37

        *hold it under her chin to catch her tears* A whole week? Dadblameit!

      • 278 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2014 at 00:09

        Just four days!

      • 279 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 20, 2014 at 02:58

        Four days often feel like forever.!

      • 280 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 12:35

        I’ll be back, Audith, I promise!

      • 281 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 21, 2014 at 19:51

        Yes, Duke.

  20. 282 technophile9 April 21, 2014 at 14:15

    I laughed at #5. ;) Not the best advice to give however…

    Muddy water for sure. Although I wouldn’t swim in it either way.

    Nice to hear from Nick. When did you start working as part of a team Professor? When I first found this blog, I assumed this was all by an individual. ;)

    • 283 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:47

      It isn’t, you’re right! O. looks at everything from a practical point of view.

      Me neither!

      Forever, I think. (The whole team is listed under the MicP Studios page.) They keep my mind sorted, I think.

  21. 284 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 14:08

    Well, what a smorgasbord this is – FIVE proverbs, and I could surmise that the bologna family’s contribution is only the beginning of their wisdom.

    Nick, I don’t think it explained everything. For instance, I don’t think you told all that you could have done. I think you were erring on the side of caution. I suspect that it has to do with how dangerous the Professor can be when he is twirling his katana.

    As for the underwater cave, I think it’s best to let well alone. It could be anything from nothing to a kraken.

    I like proverb four, but it could be more specific…like what you are drinking. Isn’t that right, Bud?

    • 285 ladycheetah7 April 21, 2014 at 16:26

      I agree Susan we do need to know more about Nicholas. Could be that PVJ was swinging that katana while he was writing his part you know…

      • 286 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 16:49

        Mmmm-hmmm – agreed, Lady. I hear you!

      • 287 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:03

        What should we do about it?

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

        Probably nothing. I mean, why should we do anything about it?

      • 289 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:52

        Oh I don’t know. Dadblameit.

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

        One problem solved.

      • 291 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 19:02

        The professor problem isn’t yet.

      • 292 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 00:12

        Alas. That is irremedial.

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

        But maybe it’s not, too…

      • 294 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 15:01

        Well, you need to come and visit.

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

        Would it be solved then?

      • 296 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 18:47

        Only you can answer that.

      • 297 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2014 at 18:59

        I think it might.

      • 298 Susan P April 25, 2014 at 19:08

        there you are then

      • 299 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 15:41

        But I bet you could have answered it, too!

      • 300 Susan P April 26, 2014 at 15:56

        Moi? Never.

      • 301 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2014 at 16:14

        Hmm…

      • 302 Susan P April 26, 2014 at 19:04

        Rats and a Heifer.

      • 303 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2014 at 18:54

        And a diseased yak.

      • 304 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 13:47

        Health and welfare are going to be coming after you and your diseased Yak.

      • 305 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 15:13

        But I keep him in the basement.

      • 306 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 16:13

        Laws! He’ll contaminate the water supply.

      • 307 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:12

        He wouldn’t do that! I think I’ll name him Zach.

      • 308 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 19:34

        If he misbehaves, you can call him Zachary.

      • 309 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2014 at 19:39

        His more formal name. Love it.

      • 310 Susan P April 28, 2014 at 19:44

        *grin*

    • 311 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:45

      *laughing* Now you must admit, Shnods is the best. Right?

      Yes, that’s it. Do you have a particular question? I’m sure I’ve got a particular answer.

      I’d like to meet a kraken, wouldn’t you?

      You can’t like that one best! How about beer?

      • 312 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 20:54

        A particular question or a peculiar question? I can come up with a boatload of peculiar questions. But you probably don’t have any peculiar answers. Or do you?

        Kraken? Only from a safe distance. I wonder if it would taste like squid if it were fried? Hmmm…

        Excyouze me? I most certainly CAN like that one.

        Only gluten free, and I gotta say, I have yet to find a gf beer that was splendid. On the other hand, I have had some gf hard cider that was mighty fine.

      • 313 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:16

        Oh yes I do. I’m a master at coming up with peculiar answers to particular questions.

        I’ve never had squid, you know.

        But you can’t! Lady will get mad.

        Now I like cider. Cherry cider, you know.

      • 314 Susan P April 23, 2014 at 00:08

        Now that you mention it, I suppose you are right. I will work on some particular questions in that case.

      • 315 Professor VJ Duke April 23, 2014 at 00:53

        Okay, then. Let me know when you have them.

  22. 316 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 14:04

    Every single proverb I *laughed loudly*. The professor does make me curious as to what mathematical = he is referring to. Infinity perhaps? The water is definitely muddy because there has been a great storm prior to when this picture was taken. Poor King Author. He gets just not respect. Nicholas Warren, thank you for helping the Professor out for like any Professor, he is absent-minded. Respectfurly, LadyP

    • 317 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:44

      *smiles like a broadsword* I must say the proverbs are a wonder today. Infinity… I’m not sure. I’m easier than that, aren’t I?

      A storm! With lots of fish guts.

      I’m not absentminded!

      • 318 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 20:56

        Pardon moi? All professors are absent-minded. It goes along with the “title”.

      • 319 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:19

        But I’m a different sort of professor.

      • 320 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 21:50

        How so?

      • 321 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:00

        Well, for one, I don’t teach.

      • 322 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 20:57

        PS Definitely infinity …

      • 323 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:19

        Why?

      • 324 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 21:51

        You asked me that already. *sigh* *shaking head* Just ’cause.

      • 325 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:00

        I’ll take your word for it.

      • 326 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 21:01

        PSS *laughing VERY loud* And just how does a broadsword smile? I’m really trying to picture that very thing.

      • 327 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 21:21

        Well, don’t you suppose it’s a big sort of smile?

      • 328 Amy Pinkrose April 21, 2014 at 21:52

        Well, I would say so. A-huh. I kinda thought that was what you were referring to.

      • 329 Professor VJ Duke April 22, 2014 at 14:02

        It’s also a vicious smile.

  23. 330 The Dancing Rider April 21, 2014 at 13:34

    Alternately groaned, and grinned, over the proverbs. DS’s is so, well, expected. Of course he would have that view. However, I couldn’t decide if I liked any of the rest more than another. 2 is so one of those that you simply cannot argue with, because it’s illogical. 4 sort of makes sense. 5 is, well, appropriate for the PL. So winnowing to 3 – my favorite by elimination!

    Love Bud Parker. Way to go, “bud”, in frustrating King Arthur (who might deserve it).

    Fun to read about N. Warren.

    And I really like the new background and header! :0

    • 331 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:36

      Well, I think Shnodgrate will be happy he won, for sure. That was my favorite as well. Ruber, I think, just said the first thing he thought. Didn’t want to waste time on the subject. And DS has no excuse. Don’t you think he should be called out on that?

      Haha! I think KA did deserve it, for sure. He’s a fun one to aggravate.

      Yes, Susan wanted a bit about him. So, he wrote that. He’s a nice chap, you know.

      Many thanks, DR! It’s a new look, for sure!

      • 332 The Dancing Rider April 21, 2014 at 21:16

        Oh, and nothing untoward about the brown waves. That is sand.

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

        Is that it? Rats. I was hoping for something grander, you know.

      • 334 The Dancing Rider April 21, 2014 at 21:26

        lol ;-)

  24. 336 walt walker April 21, 2014 at 13:20

    All water that has fish in it is dirty with something. Could be guts, could be other fishy things. Fishes, as my daughter would say, are pee-yew yucky.

    • 337 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 13:21

      *laughing* Now that makes sense. Yucketh indeed! But what would Mr. Fish think of such a saying?

      • 338 deanthefish April 21, 2014 at 13:25

        I would say swimming pools with a lot of humans in them can be far more pee-yew yucky.

      • 339 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 20:27

        I would say so too. But then, I can’t really say such things.

      • 340 Susan P April 21, 2014 at 13:58

        So true, deanthefish, so true.

      • 341 walt walker April 22, 2014 at 18:32

        “No human being, however great and powerful, was ever so free as a fish. ~ John Ruskin, The Two Paths

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

        But I’m free, and I don’t think I’m a fish.

      • 343 walt walker April 23, 2014 at 20:09

        So free as a fish?

      • 344 Professor VJ Duke April 24, 2014 at 14:42

        Yes…wouldn’t you say?

    • 345 deanthefish April 21, 2014 at 15:02

      Thank you! I remember one instance in particular that still has me disgusted. It was a very hot day at a very packed amusement park and everybody had their own three square feet of space in the pool. The pool was murky. And needless say I didn’t swim. I’d be baccala first!

  25. 346 deanthefish April 21, 2014 at 12:58

    #3 is my favorite and I love the new background!!

    • 347 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2014 at 13:21

      Many thanks, Mr. Fish. Didn’t that saying always bother you? It’s always made me cranky!

      • 348 deanthefish April 21, 2014 at 15:02
