CatchPhrase

wednesday pic

The professor was thinking recently.

And I was thinking about catchphrases

That’s when I thought the Punchy Lands should have one.

A catchphrase of sorts, that is–if you know what I mean.

So, this professor asked a bunch of PL’ers for their opinions on the matter.

MANLY-MAN: I think the catchphrase of the PL should be, “The land where unmanliness get punished.”

BUD PARKER: Bud, I don’t know… How about… “Where nothing begins or ends”?

DADDY SALAMI: “Where the curs live in abundance and fruitiness.”

MORTIMER BUTTERFIELD: “Home of me.”

DRAKE: I have no idea… “Hubert [i.e. Daddy Salami] must listen to me.”

SCHWARZ TAUPTINKER: Cool! How about… [And this was said in a high-pitched voice:] “Chickit oh yeah!”

The professor was left unsure, you know.

So, I came up with my own.

“Embrace your Punchy Nature!”

Any favorites, PF? Any suggestions?

    I like “embrace your punchy nature”. Surprised at Daddy Salami’s real name…Hubert sounds a lot less dangerous.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:57

      Thank you! I like that one too. Oh no, that’s not his real name. Drake just calls him that to humble a bit, bits, and little bits.

  2. 3 Susan P May 10, 2014 at 15:56

    Nope. No dadblamed catchphrases in my repertoire.

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:57

      Yeah. Catchphrases are hard and unfair to me.

      • 5 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 12:59

        Veja la!

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 13:03

        Rats. What does it mean?

      • 7 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 13:07

        Interpreted it meaneth something like “there you are.”

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 16:39

        Haha! It sounds good like that.

      • 9 Susan P May 12, 2014 at 17:16

        Keep it up and you will know just enough Portuguese to get yourself in trouble. ;)

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:00

        I think they’d try to kill me if I went now.

      • 11 Susan P May 13, 2014 at 00:53

        The Portuguese? No way. They would love you. Probably give you a dinner of sea snails.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:43

        Snails. That would be an interest. I’d try it.

      • 13 Susan P May 13, 2014 at 18:55

        You are the only person I’ve talked to about snails who hasn’t shuddered and barfed. Congratulations! You are an adventurer indeed!

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

        Well, when I was a knight we used to eat them in the castles. In milk or something. Wait. Maybe that was when I was a gladiator in Rome.

      • 15 Susan P May 14, 2014 at 13:24

        It’s unlikely you drank milk. Just sayin’.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:26

        I hate milk, I think!

      • 17 Susan P May 14, 2014 at 13:40

        Cow milk is not the best thing anyway.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:30

        I’ve heard this, I think…

      • 19 Susan P May 15, 2014 at 12:51

        Yeah. It is intended for, you know, cows.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 14:53

        And the professor is very un-cow like.

      • 21 Susan P May 16, 2014 at 15:18

        I think he’s pretty spry given his age.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:30

        Yes, he is. He’s even had a tooth knocked out in combat.

      • 23 Susan P May 16, 2014 at 15:36

        What a brave warrior he must be.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:39

        I laughed real hard that day, actually.

      • 25 Susan P May 16, 2014 at 16:07

        Ah. A manly-man.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 23:01

        Well, it was a bit unnerving, too, in a way. I’m still dealing with the dadblame thing. But the tooth wasn’t actually knocked all the way out. It was like cut in half!

      • 27 Susan P May 17, 2014 at 01:03

        I would have guessed that there would have been complications. The Princess and her mother both have tooth stories.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 19:56

        Really? Makes me feel good. The Princess doesn’t have the adult ones yet, though. Dentistry has come a good long way.

      • 29 Susan P May 18, 2014 at 20:54

        Bethy’s problem was a result of an icy road. We probably should not have been out, but we were. An oncoming car and trying to give them enough room – one of Pennsylvania’s delightful high crowned roads – and next thing I knew we had a rather painful encounter with a large tree that refused to give us right of way.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke May 19, 2014 at 14:46

        Oh no! I understand about the roads. Teeth are such problems.

      • 31 Susan P May 19, 2014 at 16:17

        Danny was a little fellow – about four – and when Harry came to the hospital to pick us up, he ran over to him and yelled at him and pounded his little fists on Harry’s legs and asked, “Why did you break my car?”

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2014 at 00:02

        *laughing lots* That wasn’t fair of him! But it must have been rather funny.

      • 33 Susan P May 20, 2014 at 19:32

        It was. Harry didn’t know what hit him. grin

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 12:42

        *laughing*

  3. 35 erinkenobi2893 May 8, 2014 at 11:05

    I liked Tauptinker’s one. Also, why does Drake call DS “Hubert”?! 0_0 Is that his real name!?

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:54

      You must pick mine, obviously, dadblameit!

      Well, DS becomes really pathetic when Drake’s around. (It has been in a few skits, probably before you were a PFM.) It’s his way of putting DS down.

      • 37 erinkenobi2893 May 9, 2014 at 14:50

        I think yours is the best, but Tauptinker’s one is pretty fun too. :-P
        Ahhh… I need to check out more of those. ;-) But it will take time, seeing as I have a million other things I should be doing. :-(

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:46

        Wow. Tauptinker’s seems to be a favorite, for sure.

        Oh, don’t worry about it–if you don’t have time. You’ll get caught up eventually. And I’m here to explain the other stuff.

      • 39 erinkenobi2893 May 10, 2014 at 13:09

        :-) Thanks.

  4. 40 Bethy May 8, 2014 at 10:31

    Of Course Schwarz’s is the best!
    You changed your desk position??

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:52

      Over the professor’s?!!!!! And one more !

      I did! How’d you know?

      • 42 Bethy May 9, 2014 at 10:37

        One more what?
        Well the professor’s isn’t bad. Just isn’t as catchy. I could see myself saying Schwarz’s, but I’m not sure when I would say the professor’s.

        It was in the tags! I thought that was an odd way to announce that. Or maybe not.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:43

        You know, I think it was a professorish saying. But I cannot remember why I said it. My mind’s going, you know.

        *nods* I do see. Schwarz has a knack for it!

        Oh yes, that’s right. I put everything in the tags. I usually announce all sorts of different things in there.

      • 44 Bethy May 12, 2014 at 09:56

        I totally understand. Part of my mind has done gone already.

        Yes, Schwarz does have a knack.

        Why did you move your desk? I love moving things around, but my husband always fights me on it.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 13:00

        *laughing* Oh dear! Sounding a bit MM-ish. Love it.

        He does.

        Well, I love moving things around too. Plus, the new position leaves a huge wall open for shooting.

      • 46 Bethy May 13, 2014 at 14:19

        ooo shooting. Darts? Or just the wall?

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:06

        Video, actually…

      • 48 Bethy May 14, 2014 at 15:36

        Oh, well I guess that could be almost as exciting as darts. *smile*

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:34

        It is, actually!

  5. 50 icedmocha34 May 8, 2014 at 00:51

    Hmm, I like them all…

    • 51 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:30

      That’s great! But you must have a favorite!

  6. 52 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 20:36

    I like your CatchPhrase, Duke. It’s suits the space. However, why is it that I also enjoy Parker’s input…? He’s just trying to find my good side, isn’t he? A brilliant addition worthy of consideration, I believe.

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:48

      I think you like Parker–for some strange reason. Now you must tell me!

      • 54 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 01:58

        I don’t know!!! What have you done to him…all he used to ever say was Dude…

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:45

        No, no, it was ‘bud’ all the time.

      • 56 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:04

        Oh yes… I knew that!
        *wonders where dude came from*

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:14

        I’m not sure! where?

      • 58 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:19

        I can’t figure it out.

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:51

        It’s close!

      • 60 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 19:10

        Yet so far, because I still have no idea.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:09

        Well, I meant it’s kinda close to ‘bud’.

      • 62 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 02:31

        Kinda…but let’s face it I failed. Have you decided whether or not you’re adding onto your catchphrase?

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:35

        Adding onto?

      • 64 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 20:58

        I don’t know. I think I thought you said you were considering adding on… *laughs* (I may have been delirious when I wrote that)

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:42

        *laughs too*

      • 66 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 12, 2014 at 19:18

        Laghing at me…

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:08

        I am!

      • 68 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 02:44

        I figured as much! See what I do to keep our conversations going? *laughs*

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:55

        Poops to you madam!

      • 70 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 13:41

        Hey…! Twasn’t nice at all, Duketh.

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2014 at 13:02

        *smiles like the sun*

      • 72 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 14, 2014 at 19:45

        *wipes that smile off your face*

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke May 15, 2014 at 12:38

        With a popsicle.

      • 74 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 15, 2014 at 13:41

        Maybe? But only if it’s the flavor you hate the most.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 15:01

        *shocked face* Let’s see…I hate root beer flavor the most! Yes, that’s it!

      • 76 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 19:11

        *throws away all the root beer flavored ones*

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2014 at 23:11

        Rats! You saw right through that…

      • 78 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 16, 2014 at 23:41

        *smirks* I did!! Why do men love root beer! ?

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 19:48

        Because it’s sweet?

      • 80 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:23

        Like me…

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2014 at 21:47

        Unlike me…

      • 82 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:50

        I never win this battle.

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

        That’s because I’m a veteran of professorish wars.

      • 84 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 17, 2014 at 21:58

        I wish I was, too. That way I’d have a fighting chance.

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke May 19, 2014 at 14:42

        *smiles bigly*

      • 86 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 19, 2014 at 19:35

        *frowns again* (I don’t like this one bit, you know.)

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2014 at 00:07

        Well, what can I do?

      • 88 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 20, 2014 at 02:54

        I don’t know… (ahhh!)

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke May 21, 2014 at 12:34

        I think I’m innocent.

      • 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 21, 2014 at 19:48

        I highly doubt that, Duke.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke May 22, 2014 at 15:47

        Am I wicked, then?

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 22, 2014 at 19:47

        Yes, wicked. Always!

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke May 23, 2014 at 14:49

        Nice! (Krunk voice)

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 23, 2014 at 18:55

        *giggles*

  7. 95 weggieboy May 7, 2014 at 19:39

    Dadblameit! Can’t we all just get along? Huff-Hum and a Roar! Punchy Lands is all those things and more! No one holds all the cards there, and each one is a player. Pretty much.

    • 96 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 22:14

      Ah, so there are a few, maybe not as intelligent?

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:49

        You’re being wicked, Bubbles.

    • 98 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:42

      *nods* Hmm! Like it lots. And I like “Huff-Hum and a Roar, the Punchy Lands is all those things and more!” That’s a great rhyme there.

  8. 99 bardictale May 7, 2014 at 19:13

    I like Bud Parker’s. It’s very punchy.

    • 100 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:40

      It is! But, Bard!!! Isn’t the professor’s grander?

      • 101 bardictale May 8, 2014 at 09:26

        That’s like asking me to choose between chocolate and ice-cream.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:49

        But the professor could choose between them!

      • 103 bardictale May 8, 2014 at 16:06

        Indeed? He is a brave man!

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:57

        I’m Hector, you know.

      • 105 bardictale May 8, 2014 at 21:15

        I do now. Would you like some fruit tea?

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:15

        Cherry?

      • 107 bardictale May 9, 2014 at 05:37

        Sure^^

  9. 109 Painting Pundit May 7, 2014 at 17:24

    DS is always right on the money but I like Bud’s too! However, I’m going with the commenters on Dadblamery. Daily Doses of Dadblamery, Chickit, oh yeah!

    • 110 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:38

      *laughing* The PL does seem like dadblamery at times. Do you suppose dadblamery is a good thing overall?

      • 111 Painting Pundit May 8, 2014 at 00:11

        Oh yes! We all need some dadblamery to keep us on track! Dadblamery can be bad or good. Daddy Salami is the bad kind. The others are various forms of the good kind, even manly Man and Bud though Bud sometimes tries too hard to be Manly. Mr Magi keeps the dadblamery under control before it gets out of hand. Maybe all the Punchies are just trying to keep the dadblamery of life under control for the rest of us!

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:28

        That’s definitely an option. And I like how you’re right on with DS, Mr. Magi, and MM! Do you know, though, Mr. Magi thinks–and he can be wrong–that the Punchies are, in fact, the ones responsible for the Punchyness of the land!

      • 113 Painting Pundit May 8, 2014 at 16:09

        I think in this case, Mr Magi is correctly

      • 114 Painting Pundit May 8, 2014 at 16:10

        Make that correct! Mr Magi is correct.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:58

        Oh yes! *laughs* Quite right.

  10. 116 Debbie May 7, 2014 at 17:15

    I vote for the Professor’s own catch phrase — and no, I’m not just trying to stay on his good side!

    • 117 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:36

      Many thanks! You know, I am honored. Neatio. It’s rather spicy, huh?

  11. 118 desertdweller29 May 7, 2014 at 16:57

    How about a combo of yours and Schwarz? “Embrace your Punchy Nature. Chickit, oh yeah!” Me likey.

    • 119 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:35

      *laughs* Love what you said at the end there… That’s a rather good idea, too. Do you think we should swear more in the catchphrase?

      • 120 desertdweller29 May 7, 2014 at 23:42

        Ha! Why the hell not! I think MM would approve of a swear. Though chickit might be strong enough language…

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:51

        *laughing lots* I was thinking some “maledictions” too! But, you don’t suppose it will scare anyone away, do you?

      • 122 desertdweller29 May 8, 2014 at 00:04

        Why Professor, you’re feeling more punchy than usual today …maledictions, swears… What’s next?! :) The PLanders can tolerate quite a bit, me thinks. I suppose Wednesday is the punchiest of days.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:27

        Yes, doesn’t Wednesday seem to be the Punchiest? It’s a wonder.

        Now I feel wicked! *smiles bigly*

  12. 124 L. Marie May 7, 2014 at 15:28

    “Embrace your punchy nature” seems appropriate. I can only add, “the land that packs a punch” or “enter at your own risk.” (The last one makes me think about Daddy Salami.)

    • 125 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:28

      *laughing* I thought of him immediately too! But I know you want to meet him.

      • 126 L. Marie May 8, 2014 at 12:36

        I’d only want to meet him if I had a blow torch handy.

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:59

        And a sword!

  13. 128 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 14:22

    How about, “Great writing, great music, and even better booze.”

    What more could you want?

    • 129 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:32

      Booze? Now how’s that factor in, Symph? (What should I call you now? Is Mr. Fish not allowed?)

      • 130 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 16:48

        Bubbles.

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:35

        Haha! Okay, I shall.

    • 132 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 7, 2014 at 20:38

      The music man has a point…

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:49

        Why is that, Audith? I haven’t had any booze, dadblameit!

      • 134 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 02:00

        Well, I thought it seemed like a fitting catchphrase…
        It would explain why the professor never remembers anything…

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:46

        I’ve got a better memory than Charlie! And maybe even Audith!

      • 136 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:06

        Well, that has yet to be seen, Duke. Charlie rarely talks. Unless it is only to you, which wouldn’t surprise me.
        Better than mine!!!? Oh this is about the eye color isn’t it? That’s not fair, Duketh! That is all your fault…

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:15

        It is about the eye color! (I think we should throw Charlie in the woods. MM told me too.) Isn’t the eye color thing funny?

      • 138 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 15:21

        I thought it was… (MM is gonna get me all sorts of mad, you know. But he’s our slug. What would we do without him?) It is funny. I like hazel eyes. What isn’t funny is that I missed it being a truth of yours. Dang it!

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:52

        *laughing* I’m sorta funnied out about that, you know. (He just tries too hard to be manly.)

      • 140 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 8, 2014 at 19:12

        Which part? MM or the eyes thing? Yeah, let’s drop it, I guess.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:10

        MM! He’s just a silly at times.

      • 142 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 02:33

        He is silly, but I like that about him. His thought process makes me smile. He never takes anything too seriously, but then when he does watch out. Something to admire, actually. I bet he and I would be friends. I’m pretty protective, too.

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:35

        Well, what a wonder!

      • 144 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2014 at 20:58

        What do you make of it, Duketh?

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:43

        I think it’s a great thing overall, you know.

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

        You do? I’m surprised.

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 23:09

        I’m friends with him, you know.

      • 148 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 02:45

        I think I do know that, Duke. What do the two of you like to do together?

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2014 at 12:56

        We like to play manly games, I think.

      • 150 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 13, 2014 at 13:42

        Yes, of course, you do. Pfft!

    • 151 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 22:37

      And what might that point be? I’m having a hard time remembering how I came up with that catchphrase….

  14. 152 Simply Skeptical May 7, 2014 at 13:37

    This is a tough one. Definitely some good suggestions have already been made. I do like yours professor and PLF member Walt had a good one too. Good Luck in your quest I’m sure you’ll find that perfect humdinger catch phrase. Here’s my inadequate thought: Manothunder! Punchy Land’s forever dadblameit!

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

      *laughing* That’s grand, too! I love the swearing you get in there. Do you suppose Malediction should be in the catchphrase?

      • 154 Simply Skeptical May 7, 2014 at 14:48

        Sure! If it’s Punchyish its excellentish. (grin). What swearing? What are you speaking of Professor? Goodness me…

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:26

        All the professor-type swear words. You know, like “dadblameit.” That’s a swear word, madam.

  15. 156 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 13:31

    Hmm…loyalty demands that I vote for the Professor’s but I think we all know my heart is with ‘Chickit oh yeah!’ Though I think MM makes a very valid point too.

    ‘marry a music man’??? I do hope that’s not your way of secretly proposing to Amelia? (We need Manly-Man!) Hope your new desk position is working out for you though… *chuckles*

    • 157 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 14:26

      tsk tsk tsk. You don’t appreciate British rock properly.

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:33

        No surprise you got that. It’s all your fault I can’t get it out of my head, too!

      • 159 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 16:34

        Very perceptive! But the more interesting question is why you guys do…?

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:34

        Why wouldn’t this professor know?

      • 161 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 01:58

        Because…well…good noodles! It was bad enough having to listen to it when it was cool! (So I’m told – obviously I’m too young to remember.)

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:46

        I thought it was still cool! At least, from some of my acquaintances. When was it really…in?

      • 163 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 17:40

        Yes, well, perhaps we need to talk about a) your acquaintances and b) the meaning of cool some day soon…

        The thing is some of the stuff you listen to is even before my time! Early 70s I’d say – which is 40 years ago! It would be like BUS thinking Alan-a-Dale’s cool…

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 19:09

        I suppose we must. I didn’t know there was such a science to it all. How creepily creepy!

        *laughing* Good one, FEF. I always liked Alan-a-Dale. Yes…well, don’t you listen to RVW?

      • 165 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 21:30

        *laughing* Well, you have a point…but since I’m not sure RVW was ever cool, I don’t think he can really be uncool…

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:17

        That’s true. The professor has always been uncool which makes him cool.

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

      Hmm indeed! I’m getting the feeling that everyone thinks the professor isn’t a warrior anymore. Is this true?

      *laughing* The desk position is grand! I think. It is not! I see I’ll have to kill Amelia….

      • 168 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 16:41

        Well, my heroic Professor, I cannot lie – my belief in your warriorness was shaken profoundly by all this dallying you’ve been doing with your various ladies recently. I think it was the multi-winking that really worried me most. You must go on a valiant quest and return home with great trophies and tales of derring-do in order to restore your reputation…

        No, please…allow me…

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:34

        It’s on, then. I must set out on an adventure and maybe kill a dragon with a purple tongue. What a problem this causes!

        *laughing* Sure! How will you do it…?

      • 170 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 02:06

        Ah, that sounds more like my C-W-W! Go forth and do battle! For what is a dragon after all but the giantest of giant worms? The minstrels are waiting to turn your glorious deeds into song…

        *grins wickedly* With a pea-shooter. Not to avoid gore but just because it’ll take a really, really long time…

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:48

        A worm with bat wings, it is true! Should I go in armor, do you think?

        *laughing* I didn’t know you hated her!

      • 172 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 17:47

        No! Go in armour instead! Armour burnished so brightly that it gleams like the noon sun in a summer sky. And over it you must wear a dazzlingly white surcoat embellished in scarlet with the Punchy coat-of-arms – and on your helmet a matching scarlet plume! But beware, goodly Sir Chicky… for there be many perils twixt here and there…

        I didn’t at first…but when I saw the hideous effect she was having on my C-W-W it became obvious she has to go… *sighs at the sad inevitability of it all…and goes back to pea-shooter practice*

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 19:11

        Hahaha! But is Sir Chicky a good name for a fierce warrior? I think I should just wear a breastplate and go more like Hector. Though, NO sandals or the other thing.

        If my memory serves me right–and it usually does–weren’t you trying to push us together?

      • 174 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 21:37

        Well, better than Sir Woot-Woot I feel…but it’s your choice. No, no, no, no, NO! I will not have my hero go into battle in a breastplate and cargo pants!! Good noodles! You’d get thrown out of the Worshipful Company of Dragon-Slayers if they saw you in such a flagrant breach of the dress code. Now just buckle on your katana and get going…

        Hmm…perhaps…briefly. But that was before I knew it would make you start to twitch…

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:19

        That’s true…kind of! I’m confused on the matter now, which means I won’t think on it. Good noodles! I don’t like riding horses either. Can we get a different mobile?

        That was a professorish twitch!

      • 176 FictionFan May 9, 2014 at 16:23

        Goodness, you’re an awfully fussy hero, you know. OK, forget the armour…and the breastplate. We’ll send you off in a Sopworth Camel, wearing a leather coat, boots, flying helmet and goggles. Better?

        Yes, but the Professor didn’t have a twitch till he started hanging around with his troupe of ladies! I bet Mr R has a twitch too…

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:52

        Much better! I love the getup. I’ll need to wear a fisherman’s hat, too.

        *growls at FEF*

      • 178 FictionFan May 10, 2014 at 14:12

        You can’t wear a fisherman’s hat over a flying helmet!! Look, you take care of the weaponry side of the kit, and let me deal with the wardrobe…how about that? (It’s a wonder heroes ever achieved anything…)

        *chuckles* That’s much better! Just keep growling every time you see a lady approaching and your twitch will clear up in no time…

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:52

        What’s a flying helmet? Goodness.

        Well, I should growl at you then!

    • 180 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 17:13

      My dear lady, I appreciate everything properly. Whether my appreciation of something is meager or copious you can be assured that it is the only proper appreciation possible. Any less would be deficient and any greater would be excessive.

      • 181 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 19:28

        Goodness, Bubbles! What a great Mr R impersonation! *winks cheekily*

        While I accept that your appreciation may always be at a perfectly modulated level, I was really questioning why you seem to listen to all this totally ancient stuff in the first place…

    • 182 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 19:35

      I prefer you attribute it to Podsnappery over Ratherquiteishness, please.

      Is it before your time or do you consider the 70’s ancient?

      • 183 FictionFan May 7, 2014 at 19:55

        Dickens, eh? I was toying with guessing Wilde. Really must read OMF one day…

        I consider that to be a most impertinent question, young man! Almost rude and crude…and were it not for the fact that I am now, have always been, and intend to remain 21 for eternity I would be deeply traumatised!! But yes, the 70s are ancient!

    • 184 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 22:40

      The best of ‘im I’ve read (how do you like my Cockney “H”?) And that is the best chapter in the book too!

      Hmmm… that latter paragraph leads me to believe you were a teenager (or roundabouts) in the 70’s…

      • 185 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 01:41

        Himpressive! I don’t remember it – I’m not sure if I’ve ever read it, in fact.

        How could that possibly be if I’m only 21 now?? Do the maths! (And leave that ‘s’ alone!) I shall report you to the Punchy Personnel Department if you continue to make these unfounded allegations about me being…old!!!

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:30

        No one’s as old as the professor. (And I really must start that department.)

      • 187 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 17:25

        That’s so true. I may have been 21 for some time now but at least my knees aren’t wobbly! (Yes, do! Because I have a feeling some of your staff may turn out to be a bit of a handful…)

      • 188 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 19:02

        *laughs* Yes, quite right! (The analysts do get out of control. We’ll have you head it.)

    • 189 Symphonist Sepperl May 8, 2014 at 02:34

      Old? Who said anything about old? If you really are 21, I’m the one who is old. See how relative it is?

      • 190 FictionFan May 8, 2014 at 14:08

        Oh, no…are we relatives? How utterly terrifying! Should I call you Uncle Bubbles???

    • 191 Symphonist Sepperl May 9, 2014 at 12:44

      I’m afraid my words are being stretched out of context. Context you know is an awful awful place to be.

      • 192 FictionFan May 9, 2014 at 16:31

        Oh, sorry, Uncle…was it supposed to be a secret? OK, I’ll keep mom…

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:54

        *laughing lots* Wicked!

    I like Mr. Parker’s.

    Or…Free refills on dadblamery.

    • 196 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:29

      Yes. That sounds like me too, doesn’t it?

      That’s a good one. How’s your tank, now that you bring it up?

      • 197 Symphonist Sepperl May 7, 2014 at 14:32

        I love the free refill idea. It evokes a relaxed, gentlemanly atmosphere complete with refreshment!

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:33

        It does. Will you do the refilling?

  17. 199 The Dancing Rider May 7, 2014 at 13:28

    Uh no. I am not good at catch phrases. But I sure did laugh at Daddy S’s suggestion. I think you will have to come up with it. The PL’rs each have their own agenda! An all-encompassing phrase is needed!

    • 200 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:28

      Exactly! Each phrase is so personally put together. Maybe “Embrace Your Punchy Nature” is the simplest. You know, StarWars’ is “May the force be with you.” And I don’t think that says much of anything about the movies.

      • 201 The Dancing Rider May 7, 2014 at 20:08

        Well, actually, the Star Wars phrase had a lot to do with the conflict between the principles “good” and “bad” force. …..

        Hmmmm, “Embrace Your Punchy Nature” is sounding better and better. Or “Embrace Your Punchiness”. Nah, I like “Punchy Nature” better. :)

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:48

        Did you know, DR, that the wicked side of the force was actually the good side? I mean, I think I’d be a Sith, you know.

        I think that is easier, for beginners. Now I’m wondering if you can be a veteran of the PL…

      • 203 The Dancing Rider May 8, 2014 at 13:18

        One could certainly be an honorary denizen of the PL’s by virtue of being along for the ride for a long time I guess.

        A SITH?! Oh! I’d be a Jedi! Battle is on! :)

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 15:07

        I think you’re right on! And you know, the professor is very old.

        It is! Don’t you like Siths better? I mean, they got red sabers!

      • 205 The Dancing Rider May 8, 2014 at 16:19

        I’m intrigued by them, but a Jedi Lady I’d defintely be!

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:58

        Well, dadblameit! I bet you’d have a yellow lightsaber too.

      • 207 The Dancing Rider May 8, 2014 at 19:32

        Ha, ha. All in jest!

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:14

        *laughing* For sure!

  18. 209 PorterGirl May 7, 2014 at 13:22

    I had a good chuckle at Daddy Salami’s suggestion! Yours is also super, Professor. How about… The Punchy Lands – Where Dadblamery Abounds! But that might put people off visiting. Land Of Cashews & Cherries? I’m rubbish at this :/

    • 210 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:26

      *laughing lots* You are not rubbish at this! Both are grand. As a matter of fact, the latter one I might adopt for my personal motto? Is that fine?

      And the first is really good.

      • 211 PorterGirl May 7, 2014 at 15:16

        I would be very honoured for you to adopt it as your personal motto :)

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:27

        Thanks, Lucy! It does sound professorish, you know.

      • 213 PorterGirl May 8, 2014 at 06:05

        I think so too :)

    • 216 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:25

      Another good one! I fear it’s going to be hard a-choosing. John, what does Punchy mean to you now?

      • 217 John W. Howell May 7, 2014 at 18:20

        Punchy is freedom to be as nuts as one wishes. Punchy Lands is where one can practice one’s nuttiness. So, as one is nuts so one acts nutty

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:40

        Aha! A wonder. A great definition. Good job on that, you know.

    • 220 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 14:25

      Aha! A good one, for sure. Isn’t Punchiness grand?

      • 221 InfiniteZip May 7, 2014 at 16:00

        Always!!!! Always, did I tell you I heard you ride by the other night? Your pony was quite loud, eating the weeds in my garden.

      • 222 Professor VJ Duke May 7, 2014 at 23:29

        *laughing lots* No! Really? How did I look?

      • 223 InfiniteZip May 8, 2014 at 05:57

        Like Sean Connery but better, and your pony had spots.

      • 224 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 14:48

        It did! What sort of spots?

      • 225 InfiniteZip May 8, 2014 at 15:40

        I think it was grey and black, an Appaloosa or maybe a bit of Clydesdale , it had furry stompers.

      • 226 Professor VJ Duke May 8, 2014 at 18:56

        *laughing* Rats! You’re not supposed to see me, you know.

      • 227 InfiniteZip May 8, 2014 at 19:32

        I don’t know why you were riding side saddle though??

      • 228 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:14

        Oh dear! Isn’t that how ladies ride?

      • 229 InfiniteZip May 9, 2014 at 01:18

        Well, yes, I suppose we never did establish that….I guess that explains it….:) smiles:) I ride western myself…cowboy camp as a child:)

      • 230 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 01:25

        Well, how would a warrior ride?

      • 231 InfiniteZip May 9, 2014 at 09:57

        Hard and bold:)

      • 232 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2014 at 20:40

        Exactly!

      • 233 InfiniteZip May 10, 2014 at 12:45

        She laughs out loud scaring the other travelers at JFK airport:)

      • 234 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2014 at 12:48

        Who, who?

    • 235 Symphonist Sepperl May 9, 2014 at 12:41

      Is that the same as hard boiled?

      • 236 InfiniteZip May 9, 2014 at 13:07

        Like eggs? I like eggs, but I like scrambled with lots of melty cheese:). Maybe soft boiled? Or poached, oh yes, poached definitely.


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