Segment A
Punchy Proverbs

PP's

All proverbs were written by Merlin this week.

1. In this world, we are given two gifts: the ability to forget, and the ability to remember nothing. Of the two, they are quite the same.

2. Depression sets in when hope dies; hope dies when priorities get mixed up; priorities get mixed up when they exist.

3. It hurts to get stung—especially when the skin is thick.

4. Befuddlement comes oft disguised as the words of a wise man. ~ FictionFan

#4 is my favorite. Favorites, PF?

Segment C
Featured Story: Burned at the Stake!
by J. Freedwoppen

Professor VJ Duke was almost burned at the stake last week.

“It was pure luck that the solar eclipse came around when it did,” the professor explained. “I predicted it, and then it came. That was enough to convince my executioners not to burn me.”

The whole episode was hushed up by the Analysts.

However, I was able to ask Professor VJ Duke one last question: “Why were you going to be executed?”

He smiled; and didn’t answer.

Segment D
MicP Studios—Behind the Scenes
by Nicholas Warren

I’m really not sure what I should write about today. So, I think that’s what I’ll write about: The fact that most of the time, the studio is a very boring place to work. I know, you don’t believe me. But it’s true. The studio can be quite dull. You would think it wouldn’t be true. All I can say about it is that eventually one gets used to everything. Even working with loons.

~~~

Segment E
A Conversation

KING ARTHUR: He escaped because you let him.
LIONEL HOWARD: He predicted the sun disappearing, and it did.
KING ARTHUR: You let him go, and you did!
LIONEL HOWARD: Ah, I did…umm…and you did!
KING ARHTUR: I let him go, because I had to, because all the people were amazed, because he predicted what he predicted.
LIONEL HOWARD: I think…umm…I lost you there…huh…there. Yeah.
KING ARTHUR: Stutterbutt.

    I like #4 too…
    You were about to be burned at stake?! That’s crazy!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:03

      It is! A wonder, too. Luckily, I remembered the eclipse thingy. What would you have done?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 June 27, 2014 at 16:51

        I would have probably kicked the executioner in the face and ran off with his hood. :-P

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 21:06

        *laughing* And then pelted the crowd with pies. Especially Art!

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 June 27, 2014 at 21:17

        X-D Yeah!!!

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:31

        Cool!

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 June 30, 2014 at 15:28

        Maybe I should play Robin Hood rescuing somebody who’s about to be executed sometime… With pies. X-D

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 18:17

        That would be great fun indeed! Yes…beetle pies?

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 June 30, 2014 at 19:56

        Oh, yes! >:-D Prince John would love those! :-P Sarcastically, of course. ;-P

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 12:43

        *laughs* Good! A few in the face, then.

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 July 1, 2014 at 14:05

        *splats them in P.J.’s face* Already done. *dusts hands off* What’s next? :-P

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:17

        Let’s trip him and then lock him in the closet with Anakin.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 July 1, 2014 at 22:20

        *rips the carpet out from under PJ’s feet* >:-D

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:32

        Haha! Now I bet he’ll get cranky.

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 July 3, 2014 at 13:42

        X-D That was fun!

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:42

        And freeing!

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 July 4, 2014 at 12:46

        Indeed. :-)

  2. 18 Me, Myself and DIY June 25, 2014 at 11:43

    #2 is IT for me. Ugh – doesn’t that suck but it happens. Thanks for giving me a proverb to try to NOT live. Does that make sense? LOL.

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:15

      *laughing lots* It does! Proverbs are crazy. Sometimes they give you things to keep in mind; other times, they don’t. A wonder, huh?

  3. 20 Julie Harris June 24, 2014 at 01:23

    #4 is my favorite as well… glad you escaped from getting burned at the stake!! And working with loons sounds like fun to me!

    • 21 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:49

      No Nick-ish loons. They’re the worst kind, you know. They’re not fun to work with at all. Rats to that.

  4. 22 InfiniteZip June 24, 2014 at 00:19

    You must not be too badly singed to add more my fine friend:) yes, number 4:)

    • 23 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:30

      *bows*

  5. 24 InfiniteZip June 24, 2014 at 00:18

    Oh yes, I do so like number four:) who is the fan?

    • 25 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:30

      *laughing* FictionFan. It’s FEF. Gee! You need to help me write proverbs.

  6. 26 E. June 23, 2014 at 22:57

    I’m going to start calling people Stutterbutt now. :D

    • 27 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:26

      Isn’t it awesome? (In the PL it refers to someone who stutters.)

  7. 28 The Dancing Rider June 23, 2014 at 21:03

    Was so excited to see the proverbs written by Merlin this week. As you know, I have a soft spot for him. I like all of them (of course!), especially #3. But most of all I loved FF’s proverb, and her’s in my favorite! And it is true! :D

    Erm, Professor? GREAT prediction on the eclipse. Now to suss why they were going to burn you at the stake! It figures that you answered the question with only a smile….. but ha, ha ha. “Poor” King Arthur on your having been let go!

    As for Nick – how to say… nicely…. that if you are there, working with loons, might you not also be a loon?! 1/2 a loon?! ;-)

    • 29 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member June 23, 2014 at 21:19

      Their might be some truth to that statement… Just a little.

      • 30 The Dancing Rider June 23, 2014 at 22:13

        ;-)

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:25

      Mine too! FEF’s a great lady, you know. She can write proverbs, but I can’t. I’ve tried. Merlin does a swell job too. Do you suppose Merlin’s are better than V’s?

      Yes, Arthur is mean. While at supper, you see, I asked him to knight me, because I’m a professorish professor. And…he did that! Mean, huh?

      *laughing lots and maybe more lots* Yes! He’s the greatest loon, too.

      • 32 The Dancing Rider June 24, 2014 at 22:55

        Well, I like V’s, too. But, as I said, I have a soft spot for Merlin.

        Arthur is mean for knighting you?!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:13

        I understand. I kinda like him too. Merlin and DS are friends, you know.

        Well, he didn’t knight me. He put me on the stake instead!

      • 34 The Dancing Rider June 25, 2014 at 21:09

        Which makes me ask: why on earth did you ask him to Knight you — or, perhaps you thought he might not be mean for once! ;-)

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 23:43

        Well…don’t you think I sorta deserve it?

      • 36 The Dancing Rider June 26, 2014 at 13:11

        It was probably a foolish request. But of course your question is ambiguous, as you undoubtedly intend….so I will say, of COURSE you deserve the knighthood! ;-)

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:40

        *laughing lots* DR, you think me wicked, I think! Art should have done it. I would have…been proud about it.

      • 38 The Dancing Rider June 26, 2014 at 17:24

        Of course I think you wicked, and you are (some of the time)! :)

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:02

        Most of the time, you mean! *laughs*

  8. 40 John W. Howell June 23, 2014 at 19:18

    Never truer. The existence of priorities begs for a mix up. Therefore, the need to disestablish priorities should be paramount. Once you think of the first move you need to put that move last.All other moves should be similarly handled until nothing at all is accomplished and no mixed priorities are in sight

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:24

      *laughing lots* Now, John, that is a wonderful paragraph. So, we should kill priorities?

  9. 42 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 23, 2014 at 16:20

    FictionFan is spot on with her proverb, Duke. So true.
    #2 is my favorite, however. Depresses me to think about it. I find this to be the hardest part if being an adult with responsibilities. Fighting with the child inside who wants to matter still…in some way. Dadblameit!!

    Why would Arther want to burn you?

    I find myself now thankful you have those analysts, maybe. This has me wondering…

    But Nick! You have to cintinue to tell us stories of your mundane. We enjoy it so much.

    I see…very interesting…

    • 43 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:18

      Let the child win only when the adult says no. That will work perfectly, don’t you think? Yes, FEF, did amazing. Maybe I tricked her into that…but…I’m a tricksty beast…

      I stole some ice cream, and asked him to Knight me, not fair, huh?

      Yes? About what?

      I hope he does, too.

      What is? What?

      • 44 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 24, 2014 at 05:59

        Obviously not…what a horrible idea. How does one do it when they are simultaneously the child screaming let me out and also the adult?

        I think FEF likes to be tricked by you just fine. I wouldn’t worry about that, Duke.

        I used to think that type of ice cream was nasty. Such a strange sounding name…slightly off putting. Now, I just don’t think about it. Seems reasonable to ask that, I think. Too bad he wouldn’t.

        Sounds like they saved you a bit.

        Stuttering. I can get to the point of stammering quite easily. I pay no mind.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:54

        I know. It’s a tough situation. I was hoping you’d tell me how to do it.

        The professor is so wicked!

        Ice cream? Nasty? How so? You did not! You couldn’t.

        He does, yes.

        Stuttering…it’s fun to do.

      • 46 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 24, 2014 at 16:38

        I think I already explained that I don’t know.

        You prefer yourself that way.

        The flavor you tagged in this post is yuketh. Oh, I could.

        If you say so, Duke.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:05

        Then we’re lost together, I fear.

        I do not, dadblameit dadblameit dadblameit!

        Yes, it’s only good sometimes. I know what you mean about it.

      • 48 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 26, 2014 at 06:36

        We’re always lost together, which is nice, don’t get me wrong, but shouldn’t one of us get it sorted out?? *twirls her left foot as she sits in a soft chair*

        Duketh!!! Umm, you DO too! Curses and all!

        Yeah, mostly when it is done beautifully.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:34

        Yes, probably. But it would be too hard for me. *waits on Audith*

        Well, maybe. But you’re not supposed to know!

        Ice cream done beautifully…what a wonder.

      • 50 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 26, 2014 at 21:35

        Seems hard to me, as well. Hmm…Let’s just forget about being adults. *wonders if it’ll pass*

        I don’t know everything.

        Of course! Must have a topping and a cherry, too.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:07

        Okay, let’s. Wonders if you’re foot will pass? Gosh.

        Neither does the all-knowing professor.

        Many cherries!

      • 52 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 27, 2014 at 13:37

        Umm, no. My answer, Duke. My foot? Haha.

        But I need you to know everything.

        Maraschino? Gag!!!

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 20:56

        Oh, I see! How vexing you were to me! Kinda. Not really. Just being wicked.

        What a hard chore! I shall try.

        Gag?! You can’t be serious!

      • 54 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister June 28, 2014 at 12:39

        It is a hard chore, but you can handle it.

        Oh…I’m very serious.

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:37

        I don’t see how…

        Oh dear. You must have had a worm instead and think it’s a cherry.

      • 56 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 1, 2014 at 01:46

        Look harder…

        Gross!!!

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 12:51

        It is!

      • 58 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 1, 2014 at 15:30

        What is?

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:48

        Well, the thought of worms being the cherries.

      • 60 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 2, 2014 at 05:00

        Duke…I’d much rather drinknthe worm than eat a sticky sweet cherry. Bing cherries are my favorite.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:42

        Bing cherries…never heard of them! Must search! And I don’t believe you about the worms!

      • 62 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 2, 2014 at 14:37

        You’ve never had bing cherries? I thought thise were the cherries everyone loved to eat? Where do you live? And don’t tell me PA! Because I don’t believe that… *laughs* Why not?! I have swollowed one..in college. Oops.

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:50

        You don’t believe I’m in PA? Really? And why not, madam? Never had one…you must give me some, please.

        Ate a worm? *laughing* How splendidly amazing! Why? Was it good?

      • 64 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 3, 2014 at 05:09

        I can’t believe you have never had a proper cherry. This only leads me to believe that you must live in…in…Africa. PA must have bing cherries…Duke, you would love them. I’ve been eating them all week. Be serious!! Truthfully? I must send them to you.

        It was at the bottom of a tequlia bottle and I was…gutsy. *laughing* Poor decision on my part, I’m sure. No idea if it was good or not.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:33

        Well…I’ve had fresh cherries. Are they bing cherries? Never heard them from that name. Africa…no, I do not!

        *laughs* I wouldn’t drink worms! But I would have accidentally… *laughing* That’s a great story.

      • 66 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 4, 2014 at 04:13

        Yes, fresh cherries, the pretty purplish ones, those are bing cherries. Kinda do…*laughing*

        I know I was a mess for doing it. Anything for a joke. Audith’s motto. *giggles*

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke July 4, 2014 at 17:44

        Oh…I might have had those. What a funny name you give them! Next, you’ll be calling them google cherries, or something.

        *laughs* A good motto!

      • 68 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 4, 2014 at 19:26

        Why is that a funny name. What do you call them?? Or, next, I’m going to start throwing them at you… or earing them again. I think its all we eat here.

        *narrows her eyes and smirks at you*

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:11

        Maybe just cherries? I really don’t know, dadblameit. I think I should eat some.

        *makes a dreadful face*

      • 70 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 6, 2014 at 21:54

        Come over here and eat some! Just cherries…lol!

        *crosses her eyes*

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 12:45

        *takes a pic* They’ll stick that way now.

      • 72 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 7, 2014 at 16:01

        That’s fine. It’s probably my best look, anyway.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke July 7, 2014 at 16:49

        Really? I wouldn’t have thought that, you know.

      • 74 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 8, 2014 at 05:21

        Oh, well, I’ll never cease to amaze you, I guess. Horrid to look at!

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 12:28

        What’s horrid to look at?

      • 76 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 8, 2014 at 14:03

        Me

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 16:13

        Of course not! What a mean thing to say to yourself. But it is a girly thought, you know.

      • 78 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 8, 2014 at 23:14

        It is mean and I’m often mean to myself. Can’t help it. Definitely a girly thought, which is the worst part of being a girl.

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 13:27

        Banish the thought from your mind this instance! That’s something Mr. Magi would say.

      • 80 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 9, 2014 at 15:35

        I shall. I never want to disappoint Mr. Magi.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 22:51

        That’s the spirit!

      • 82 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 10, 2014 at 01:19

        *smiles* Yes!

  10. 83 Susan P June 23, 2014 at 15:10

    I LOVE butter pecan ice cream.

    Merlin is truly a wise man. Wow.

    I need a solar eclipse. I’m never awake for the lunar ones. And that the Professor just smiled is not really news. Just sayin’.

    Nick should sleep once in awhile. I’ve heard writers say that they wake up in the night and write things like an entire novel.

    • 84 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:11

      It is tasty. Especially with turtle in it.

      Wiser than the professor?

      The professor never smiles!

      Nick is always writing… sighs…

      • 85 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 01:05

        Oh yes! Turtle Ice Cream!

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:44

        With chunks of turtle tail!

      • 87 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 14:14

        On the halfshell!!!!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 11:54

        *gul*

      • 89 Susan P June 25, 2014 at 12:18

        Run out of things to say? Or choked on the halfshell?

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:19

        I think I chocked.

      • 91 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 00:47

        Is that related to Dr. Shock?

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:20

        Now how so?

      • 93 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 23:17

        I dunno. My brain sometimes makes some crazy connections.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:19

        Yes, I think mind can do that very thing.

      • 95 Susan P June 27, 2014 at 13:37

        Does that make us weird?

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 20:55

        No! Special or Punchy.

      • 97 Susan P June 28, 2014 at 20:33

        Woohoo!

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:42

        *smiles bigly*

      • 99 Susan P July 1, 2014 at 16:21

        *Polishes her halo*

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:52

        *hides his horns*

      • 101 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 01:04

        I see them peeking out.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:38

        Might be proud of them, you know.

      • 103 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 16:55

        If you are polishing them, I would certainly would think so. Be careful if you decide to butt a brick wall.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:57

        But why? Bet they’ll go right through it!

      • 105 Susan P July 3, 2014 at 01:03

        The sea might come in and drown everyone.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:23

        Oh… *laughs* Right you are, then.

      • 107 Susan P July 4, 2014 at 20:21

        Except the sea beasts.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:19

        They’re mean.

      • 109 Susan P July 11, 2014 at 18:14

        How are dolphins mean?

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2014 at 01:39

        They have mean grins and lots of teeth!

      • 111 Susan P July 12, 2014 at 14:56

        They laugh at humans, too. But seriously, you need to watch old reruns of Flipper.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flipper_(1964_TV_series)

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 12:43

        Oh, is that the series where they hunt that dolphin?

      • 113 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 14:30

        They played with the dolphin. and the dolphin was always rescuing stoopid people who got into Situations that they couldn’t get out of without the help of a dolphin.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 19:42

        *laughs* Well, they should have went to Aquaman.

      • 115 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 19:48

        Why?

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 20:02

        He’s more human…you know.

      • 117 Susan P July 15, 2014 at 02:20

        How can that be?

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2014 at 12:46

        He’s in the right shape.

      • 119 Susan P July 15, 2014 at 21:16

        I dunno about that. Shape of his heart might tell you more.

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 00:44

        I bet he’s heartless!

      • 121 Susan P July 16, 2014 at 12:16

        How would that work?

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke July 16, 2014 at 13:10

        A mean shark bit it out!

      • 123 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 01:07

        Maybe you could say, “differently wise.”

        The Professor gets glum sometimes, but that is not the same as never smiling. When he really truly smiles, it’s not a fake smile, it’s a for real smile.

        What is he writing?

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:45

        Oh no, I never smile. I’m always growling and grimacing.

        He writes novels bigger than the biggest.

      • 125 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 14:15

        I just finished reading a novel that nearly went to 1000 pages. You need to get him outside and teach him how to play tennis.

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 11:54

        Tennis is fun, but I don’t think he’d approve. 1000 pages…good grief!

      • 127 Susan P June 25, 2014 at 12:17

        Yep. It was a good story, but not as much fun as the Lord of the Rings.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:19

        Yes, what was it?

      • 129 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 00:47

        Swan Song.

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:20

        I wrote it.

      • 131 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 23:17

        I thought that was another composer.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:19

        You’re probably right.

      • 133 Susan P June 27, 2014 at 13:36

        A decomposed composer.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 20:54

        Haha…let’s tell Symph that.

      • 135 Susan P June 28, 2014 at 20:33

        What did he say?

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:42

        He smirked, you know.

      • 137 Susan P July 1, 2014 at 16:20

        I can quite picture it.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:52

        And I slapped him–like Moe would.

      • 139 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 01:04

        What? No fingers in his eyes?

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:38

        He blocked it!

      • 141 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 16:53

        All things come to those who block it.

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:56

        You know…that sounds right.

      • 143 Susan P July 3, 2014 at 01:03

        It does have a certain ring.

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:22

        And it’s a pity it’s true.

      • 145 Susan P July 4, 2014 at 20:20

        Who said it was a pity? Laws, Professor.

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:18

        I’m always blocking!

      • 147 Susan P July 11, 2014 at 18:14

        It is a rough job, but someone has to do it.

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2014 at 01:39

        I should give it up.

      • 149 Susan P July 12, 2014 at 14:54

        You will need a replacement first.

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 12:43

        But who?

      • 151 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member June 25, 2014 at 15:01

        My novels are relatively small as far as novels go. And I don’t stay up all night writing… I just wake up early in the morning to do writing.

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 15:49

        And keep writing into the night.

  11. 153 Debbie June 23, 2014 at 15:01

    I think #4 is my favorite, too. Definitely not #1 — that’s just wrong! Selectively forgetting something is way different from remembering nothing. And #3? Well, I’d think having thin skin would make one hurt more. And #3? Hmm, the first two clauses ring true, but something about the last one doesn’t.
    The professor STOLE something?? How wicked!

    • 154 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:10

      Well, it does seem like proverb confusion. You know, #4 is my favorite. But, the thicker the skin the more pain, ’cause the more feelings and stuff. Maybe. I don’t know. The professor is too dull to think on these things.

      Yes! Well…just had a scoop of ice cream! He said it was stealing. It wasn’t, was it?

  12. 155 TheCrazyBagLady June 23, 2014 at 14:48

    I love love the proverbs! Lucky you escaped the stake to share the proverbs with us :)

    • 156 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:08

      Many thanks! But V. Shnodgrate must get the credit, you know.

      • 157 TheCrazyBagLady June 24, 2014 at 04:05

        Thanx to V. Shnodgrate!

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:49

        *bows for him*

  13. 159 desertdweller29 June 23, 2014 at 14:03

    The proverbs this week, Professor, are quite deep. I hate liking all three. It makes me appear wishy-washy…. But since I forgot where I was going with this… I choose #1.

    I do wish to know why you were slated for execution… Any hints?

    • 160 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:07

      *laughing* Well, that’s a good one to pick. But isn’t #4 spicy?

      I asked Art if I could become a knight. Don’t you think I deserve it a bit?

      • 161 desertdweller29 June 24, 2014 at 00:14

        You most certainly do! I demand your knighthood! We must gather this punchy family and rally the troops.

        I will have to check out this FanFiction… Upon a second reading, I believe it is the best food for thought. Plus, they will satisfy my love of book review reading. Amazon be damned! I bet she/he wouldn’t break any of my rules.

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:28

        Yes! You can be a colonel. And you must get me a red feather for my hat.

        It’s FictionFan, and she’s the best, totally. I review books, but I rip them. I’m rubbish at it. Amazon be damned indeed! Here’s the link: http://fictionfanblog.wordpress.com. She’s off for a bit. But just nag her to come back. Like I’ll be doing. Lots of reviews on there, though.

  14. 163 L. Marie June 23, 2014 at 13:17

    I like all three proverbs! If I have to pick a favorite (and doing so is difficult this week), I’ll go with number 3.
    Congrats on escaping from the stake! That must be such a relief for you. But please tell why you were put there in the first place.

    • 164 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:50

      Well, I stole Art’s ice cream. But what I think really fetched him is that I asked to be a knight. Not really nice of him, was it?

      • 165 L. Marie June 23, 2014 at 15:10

        No. And since knights need swords and you have a katana, a knighthood seemed inevitable.

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:10

        *smiles proudly* That would be totally awesome. I’ll get you one, too–in case you’d like to be a knight.

  15. 167 Simply Skeptical June 23, 2014 at 13:12

    Ingenious writing Sir as usual! All the proverbs were tip-top today, especially #3. So the Professor is more than meets the eye, eh? Doesn’t surprise me one bit! Dull? Nonsense, not at MicP Studios. Come on Nick must have your priorities mixed. (giggles)

    • 168 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:49

      Haha! Yes, Nick does. You should tell him. Tell him that he’s a bit upset in the head.

      Merlin did do a fine job on the proverbs. I think, that is…

  16. 169 PorterGirl June 23, 2014 at 13:09

    Goodness, the proverbs are a little unsettling this week. Merlin must been in a morose mood. I think I like 1 the best.

    Now, I am going to ponder all day long about what the Professor could have done to have ended up (nearly) burnt at the stake. Very lucky about the eclipse, but that was an excellent and cunning plan to escape. I hope one day we find out how you upset Arthur so much!

    Studios can be very dull, indeed yes. In the one we use, there is a huge brown leather sofa and sometimes I sleep on it, just to escape the boredom. But studios sometimes have interesting visitors, so that’s alright.

    • 170 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:48

      He must have been! He’s a bit crazy in the head, you know.

      Well, I’ll tell you: I stole his ice cream. And…I don’t think he likes me over very much. It must be my hat. And I asked to be a knight. I don’t think he liked that either. Maybe it was a bunch of things?

      *laughing* I can see you there taking a snooze! But I’m usually having to do mostly everything, or be involved in everything, so no snooze time. Studios have great visitors! Well, ours really doesn’t.

      • 171 PorterGirl June 23, 2014 at 15:01

        Merlin is proper mental! As we say this side of the pond.

        If someone stole my food I would definitely burn them, but not if it was you. I do get the feeling he isn’t your biggest fan, but that is just because he is an idiot. I think you would make a fabulous knight, how dare he refuse!

        It is a shame you get no snooze time and no interesting visitors. I will visit and be interesting, if that helps.

      • 172 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:09

        And so is the professor! I like that lots for some reason.

        Yes, yes! It was mean. Thanks, Lucy. I wouldn’t steal your food…unless you made cherry muffins…

        I’m sure you would be! I wouldn’t put you to work either. We’d have some food, too.

      • 173 PorterGirl June 24, 2014 at 05:20

        If there is food involved I shall certainly come. I’ll bring some cherry muffins especially for you!

      • 174 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:50

        Aw, thanks! That would be very tasty.

  17. 175 walt walker June 23, 2014 at 13:04

    Jolly good show escaping from such a terrible punishment, Old Sport! I can’t imagine what got you into such a pickle, but I’m glad you got unpickled.

    • 176 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:47

      Unpickled… *laughs* Yes! I stole his ice cream, you see. Wasn’t he overreacting?

      • 177 walt walker June 23, 2014 at 23:24

        Ooh, I don’t know. Is it possible you went too far?

      • 178 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:26

        Wouldn’t you have taken the sweet stuff?

      • 179 walt walker June 24, 2014 at 13:14

        *looks down shamefully* yes

      • 180 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 14:06

        No need to be upset by it. You see, Art is just a mean autocrat.

  18. 181 InfiniteZip June 23, 2014 at 13:03

    I like number two, and maybe three, but then again one is pretty swell too. Good job Merlin, magical :)

    • 182 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:46

      Well, dadblameit! You must pick a favorite, mustn’t you?

      • 183 InfiniteZip June 23, 2014 at 15:52

        Ok, there is my lucky number….what about four? Why can’t there be four?

      • 184 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:15

        There is a four! Do you like it?

      • 185 InfiniteZip June 24, 2014 at 00:16

        I shall have to go have a look see:) did Merlin do it? Or my fave professor?

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:29

        No, I didn’t. Ms. FictionFan did. Now that you bring it up: how old do you suppose the professor?

      • 187 InfiniteZip June 24, 2014 at 09:11

        I know young professors and old professors, if you think being a turtle is fun, you must be an old slow professor???. Or maybe somewhere in the middle?

      • 188 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:55

        Well, what if I’m a fast turtle?

      • 189 InfiniteZip June 24, 2014 at 15:44

        Do you have rocket propelled toesies?

      • 190 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:00

        Goodness me! Well, how would one know?

      • 191 InfiniteZip June 25, 2014 at 16:41

        They would move fast through space out where the red planet is:)

      • 192 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 23:27

        *laughs* Well…it sounds great, doesn’t it?

      • 193 InfiniteZip June 26, 2014 at 00:10

        Most definitely :) do you move fast in space?

      • 194 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:16

        In a rocket, of course. Do you think the professor’s moves rather fast?

      • 195 InfiniteZip June 26, 2014 at 16:20

        The professor must I think:) like a cheetah:)

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:45

        Oh dear! That would be very fast. Do bears run fast?

      • 197 InfiniteZip June 26, 2014 at 16:53

        I hear they eat children in the woods but then again children can run slow sometimes. Bears eat honey too;)

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 12:59

        And bees, and birds and bats, and maybe professors.

      • 199 InfiniteZip June 27, 2014 at 13:01

        Oh noooo…not the good professor too???

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:22

        Yes! that’s why I leave the house armed with a katana.

      • 201 InfiniteZip June 27, 2014 at 15:38

        That’s a kitchen spatula, right? Just kidding;)

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 21:05

        Oh, how horrid of you! *laughs* It’s a great big warrior weapon!

  19. 203 Hazy June 23, 2014 at 12:55

    I wish we had the ability to forget things we want to forget, not the important things. The hazy mind can be quite forgetful. A Post-It is often needed. *smiles sheepishly*

    Ah, I see the professor is being a bit wicked, keeping tight-lipped! Will we ever find out the why?

    What’s the office like? Are the professor’s painting hanging about on the walls? I imagine there’s a large bouncy couch, for some reason.

    • 204 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:46

      Me too! My desk is littered with post-its. They are great inventions! I’d be lost without them.

      *smiles proudly* The professor is wicked! Well, I stole his ice cream, you see.

      Oh, I don’t paint–except that giraffe, which doesn’t count much. Well, there’s a big green screen, mics everywhere, chairs…and there was a couch!

      • 205 Susan P June 23, 2014 at 15:13

        For a minute I thought you said mice, not mic.

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:11

        No mice. Charlemagne takes care of that.

      • 207 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 01:08

        A King takes care of the mice?

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:46

        That’s my no-good cat.

      • 209 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 14:16

        Not good-good?

      • 210 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 11:55

        No, haha! Scientist is a wonder.

      • 211 Susan P June 25, 2014 at 12:15

        Cracks me up when he says that!

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:18

        *laughs* It’s his go-to phrase. I think every PL’er has one!

      • 213 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 00:45

        The professor has a few, too.

      • 214 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:19

        I do! And I think I love them dearly, you know.

      • 215 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 23:14

        I think that some of them are part of the PA.

      • 216 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:18

        They are not!

      • 217 Susan P June 27, 2014 at 13:35

        Humph. Are so.

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 20:54

        Maybe you’re right…now that I take a look.

      • 219 Susan P June 28, 2014 at 20:32

        *faints*

      • 220 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:41

        *laughs*

      • 221 Susan P July 1, 2014 at 16:19

        ;)

      • 222 Hazy June 25, 2014 at 14:09

        Me too, yo! *highfives*

        Was it vanilla? or maybe cherry?

        But that giraffe was very nice. You should try another one! Is the couch big and comfy? Big enough to lie down and take a nap?

      • 223 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 15:46

        *highfives and maybe sings*

        It was…buttery something. It wasn’t too good. But it did fine.

        Oh…I don’t know…dadblameit! Yes! Big, comfy–a perfect place for a snooze!

      • 224 Hazy June 26, 2014 at 13:41

        *highfives and maybe sings along*

        Sounds like a very nice couch. Have you ever caught anyone sleeping there while on the job?

      • 225 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:42

        *laughing*

        I have not! But I’d like too. *rubs hands together evilly*

      • 226 Hazy June 28, 2014 at 03:43

        Go for it! Set a trap or something.*laughs*

      • 227 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:35

        I should! How wicked that would be–and fun!

      • 228 Hazy July 1, 2014 at 12:58

        Super fun (and wicked)! *laughs evilly* Do you have any idea who you might most likely catch sleeping?

      • 229 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:01

        Yes, probably Nick! He’s a bad one.

      • 230 Hazy July 2, 2014 at 11:33

        Does he have a rebellious streak? I wonder if he gets along with Alb.

      • 231 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:47

        He actually does. They’re always picking on me.

      • 232 Hazy July 3, 2014 at 12:51

        Aww. How come? Don’t they know you have a katana and can skillfully use it?

      • 233 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:35

        Well, they know I won’t get that angry about it. I usually just laugh.

      • 234 Hazy July 8, 2014 at 13:56

        *laughs* I’m kinda on the same boat. You know, my little cousins don’t believe me when I tell them off and get mad when they misbehave. They just burst out laughing when I go all serious and frown-y. They can’t seem to believe I’m capable of being angry!

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke July 8, 2014 at 16:08

        *laughing lots* Oh that’s just awesome! Same way with me. I don’t have little cousins. But…I’m always laughed at. Oh dear. We’ll either have to get meaner, or just let Weatherly take care of it for us.

      • 236 Hazy July 9, 2014 at 12:08

        *laughs* Why is the professor always laughed at? I find that a bit unbelievable. I agree, we need to try and be more mean! Say things like “cur brain” and such. But having Weatherly take care of it seems easier.

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke July 9, 2014 at 13:35

        Oh, I don’t know. I think it’s because I’m so light about everything, you know. Which is a good thing, I think. Yes! That’s it. But I agree about Weatherly. He’s too nice to take up our troubles!

      • 238 Hazy July 11, 2014 at 11:57

        Haha, I suppose so. It’s not good to always take everything so seriously, yeah?

        You know, I think Weatherly enjoys being mean to others sometimes *laughs*

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke July 11, 2014 at 13:04

        Yes, that’s it exactly!

        *laughs lots* It has to do with his training!

      • 240 Hazy July 17, 2014 at 13:56

        Haha, you’re probably right! Do you enjoy being mean to others sometimes too?

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 15:02

        I’ve never worked up the meanness to be mean! Do you?

      • 242 Hazy July 18, 2014 at 11:51

        Me neither! I think the closest to mean I can be is staying silent while looking annoyed and raising one eyebrow occasionally. *laughs*

      • 243 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 13:04

        *laughs* That’s a great cranky face!

      • 244 Hazy September 1, 2014 at 12:14

        haha, why thank you. *curtsys*

        Do you make a face when you’re cranky?

      • 245 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:01

        *bows* Yes, I think I do! Probably similar to yours, actually.

  20. 246 FictionFan June 23, 2014 at 12:51

    My favourite this week is no. 4 – Befuddlement comes oft disguised as the words of a wise man.

    Ooh, how terrifying! Poor Professor! But how brave and intelligent to escape that way – and so fortunate that an eclipse should happen just at that moment! But you must tell – what had you done to make King Arthur so angry? Did you steal his butter pecan ice cream?

    Do tell Nick they’re not real loons – it’s just Schwarzy doing his impersonations again.

    • 247 Professor VJ Duke June 23, 2014 at 13:45

      Yes! That’s my new favorite too. And it’s so true, btw. It happens all the time. Of course, I don’t do that sort of thing.

      *laughing lots and lots* You really are too smart for me. But, yes, I that’s what I stole, and he didn’t like it. Plus, Art didn’t like my sophistication! How’s that?

      Yes, Schwarz makes odd noises every now and then. I’ll send him to you for keeping.

      • 248 Susan P June 23, 2014 at 15:11

        Nick needs to stop whining.

      • 249 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:11

        Here, here!

      • 250 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 01:07

        Isn’t it Hear hear?

      • 251 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 13:45

        No, he is whining here, here, you see.

      • 252 Susan P June 24, 2014 at 14:16

        Why do you let him do that?

      • 253 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 11:55

        I don’t, dadblameit!

      • 254 Susan P June 25, 2014 at 12:16

        What you allow is what will continue.

      • 255 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:19

        Very wise of you… *nods wisely like Susan is doing*

      • 256 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 00:46

        Susan was making granola bars with her daughter.

      • 257 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:19

        When you laughed the professor to scorn.

      • 258 Susan P June 26, 2014 at 23:15

        No. Oh no! That was Amelia. You only thought it was me because she borrowed my sweater.

      • 259 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:19

        I think I should kill Amelia. I mean…she stole from you…and bothers me. Let’s do her in!

      • 260 Susan P June 27, 2014 at 13:36

        Maybe she’s just trying to get your attention. :D

      • 261 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 20:54

        Well, she better stop!

      • 262 Susan P June 28, 2014 at 20:33

        I think it will require extra-ordinary measures.

      • 263 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:41

        I guess we’ll have to kill her.

      • 264 Susan P July 1, 2014 at 16:20

        You could always sell her to the ladies to keep her away.

      • 265 Professor VJ Duke July 1, 2014 at 21:52

        No. We must shoot her.

      • 266 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 01:03

        That would be the merciful way to do away with her. The ladies are merciless.

      • 267 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 13:37

        Oh…I see your point! I will have speaks with them, then.

      • 268 Susan P July 2, 2014 at 16:52

        Take care when you approach them.

      • 269 Professor VJ Duke July 2, 2014 at 21:56

        They might take my head!

      • 270 Susan P July 3, 2014 at 01:02

        They might make you spend an afternoon in the parlor with them reading Pride and Prejudice.

      • 271 Professor VJ Duke July 3, 2014 at 20:21

        I’d bring a few toads along–and ticks.

      • 272 Susan P July 4, 2014 at 20:20

        That should do it, but it wouldn’t work on me. There are few bugs that I can’t smack down with my bare hand.

      • 273 Professor VJ Duke July 6, 2014 at 18:18

        Wasps, for instance.

      • 274 Susan P July 11, 2014 at 18:13

        If you sneak up on them you can. But you have to be fearless. They smell fear and then they are all on you like white on rice.

      • 275 Professor VJ Duke July 12, 2014 at 01:38

        Do they? Fascinating! They’re rather nice. Hornets are the wicked ones, I hear.

      • 276 Susan P July 12, 2014 at 14:53

        Hornets and yellow jackets – lots of kinds of stingers. Generally, unless you meddle with them first you have a good chance of getting away. But if you are allergic, you need an epi pen.

      • 277 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 12:43

        Unless it’s a bald faced hornets nest! They’ll attack for the fun of it–like the professor would.

      • 278 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 14:27

        The Professor is a dangerous beast.

      • 279 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 19:41

        Here hear! And, Hear here! I love that lots. *laughing*

      • 280 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 19:48

        Well, then, I got one right. ;)

      • 281 Professor VJ Duke July 14, 2014 at 20:02

        You get too many right!

      • 282 Susan P July 14, 2014 at 20:15

        Pfffft

      • 283 Professor VJ Duke July 15, 2014 at 12:43

        Huff-Hum.

      • 284 FictionFan June 23, 2014 at 17:30

        *laughing lots* I see you finally got me to contribute something – very sneaky!! I am most honoured! But won’t Shnoddy and Merlin be furious?? Of course you don’t – no-one would ever call the Professor befuddling. Bewildering is the word.

        Haha! Was I right? Hurrah!! I may have some ice-cream to celebrate. I can quite understand why he would be jealous of my C-W-W’s sophistication though – who wouldn’t be? But if the Professor really wants to be made a knight, all he needs to do is find a friendly Queen… *nods regally*

        Ooh…thank you! I shall have a special enclosure made just for him!

      • 285 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 00:23

        Nah! We all love you madly. They won’t mind. Leastaways, I hope not. I don’t care, dadblameit! Bewildering…wonder if I do it on purpose? Probably not.

        Well…do you know any friendly queens? I’m searching for one ardently… (Tuppence doesn’t count.)

        A bathroom would do just fine.

      • 286 FictionFan June 24, 2014 at 13:19

        Do you? How lovely! I love you all madly too – even Shnoddy! I suspect the Professor’s talent for bewildering is natural…

        Well…no, not at the moment. But it would only take a very small…tiny, really…revolution, and a simple coronation complete with a fabulously bejewelled crown and dancing…and the words ‘Arise Sir C-W-W’ would ring out across the land…

        *laughing* You are so mean to my lovely Schwarzy! Sheer jealousy!

      • 287 Professor VJ Duke June 24, 2014 at 14:08

        That’s really just the best. *smiles bigly* It is natural! At least, I hope it is.

        *laughing lots* Hmm…well…a bejeweled crown sounds nice. Do I get one?

        I admit, it was maybe a bit wicked.

      • 288 FictionFan June 24, 2014 at 17:31

        *smiles bigger than biggestly* Well, I very much doubt it’s something that could be taught…

        Well – I’m afraid it’s really only the monarch who gets a crown. But I’d be willing to consider making you a Knight of the Garter, in which case you could have a bejewelled garter… (Note: since you will be a knight of Scotland, and not America, there will be two ‘l’s in bejewelled – OK?)

        You vicked vun!

      • 289 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 12:11

        *bows* Yes, me too. But then again, I had to get it from somewhere.

        Rats! Well…what’s a garter? Sound sorta scary. One ‘l’… Oh fine–if you insist! Can’t I be knight in America, too?

        Zez! Your Zez impersonation?

      • 290 FictionFan June 25, 2014 at 17:32

        I suspect you’re part alien…

        A garter is a thing you put round your thigh to hold your stockings up – that’s why being a Knight of the Garter is so coveted over here. Every other man’s stockings are all wrinkled round their ankles. So since red is your favourite colour, I shall have your garter bejewelled with the finest rubies! No – if you colonials wanted to be knights in America, you should have thought it through a bit more before you threw that unfortunate tea party…

        It’s good isn’t it? *gurgles proudly*

      • 291 Professor VJ Duke June 25, 2014 at 23:35

        Yes, but not orange alien.

        Keep your stockings up?! Good noodles. Never heard of that before. I’m thunderstruck. Really confused too. How far does one’s stocking go up exactly? Maybe…maybe…I’m confused. You did it deliberately!

        Way better than mine! *laughs*

      • 292 FictionFan June 26, 2014 at 02:05

        Green Thark-like alien, I expect.

        *laughing so hard it’s quite possible she might die* Well, dear sir, this is one of the strangest conversations I’ve ever had, but suffice it to say I sincerely hope your stockings go all the way up to your doublet!

        Aw shucks, you’re just sayin’ that!

      • 293 Professor VJ Duke June 26, 2014 at 16:29

        No…more like Woola.

        Dadblameit! I don’t know what a doublet is. The Scots must dress weirdly, that’s it. That’s the problem right there. Either that, or the professor does. Stockings and doublets. Maybe you are Lizio!

        Haha!

      • 294 FictionFan June 26, 2014 at 22:40

        *tries to imagine ten-legged cargo pants*

        Image 4 – see the garters holding up his stockings? http://karenswhimsy.com/elizabethan-clothing.shtm Cool, eh?

      • 295 Professor VJ Duke June 27, 2014 at 13:14

        *me too*

        Umm…not cool at all! We can’t go there. Nope Never. Looks like a little girl–except the beard. No, we must think up a new uniform.

      • 296 FictionFan June 28, 2014 at 23:58

        *laughing lots* I quite like the idea of a Professorish doublet! Anyway, that’s what Christopher Columbus probably dressed like – especially when he went to balls. Not to mention a Connecticut Yankee…

      • 297 Professor VJ Duke June 30, 2014 at 12:46

        Won’t believe any of it! It’s all a myth fabricated by you to scare me!
