X-Rays & Dentists & A Race

PF! The professor must apologize. We are a bit off schedule, yes. You see, as of now (and then) we are working on bringing some new elements to the PL. Hence, no skit for today. If any questions arise, ask them, and this professor shall answer them…flawlessly. Something like that.

***

The professor was having a discussion with Fats Henry the other day.

I said, “I suppose x-rays are fine. I hope so, you know. They always want you to get them at the dentist.”

“Bah!” Henry almost roared. “Everyone’s always trying to push everyone into everything!”

“That’s an interesting thought, for sure.” And I had to give it some thought.

Henry looked me in the eye, and raised his finger accusingly. “Don’t ever let people convince you to do something you don’t want to do, okay?

“I suppose you may be right.”

“I am right!” Henry did roar this time. “They give you the x-ray…but they leave the room. Now why’s that?”

“It’s dangerous?” I suggested.

“Yeah!!! And they say in their little squeaky voices, ‘You get more radiation from the sun.’ Who says we need more radiation on top of things?”

“For sure, I didn’t know you felt so strongly about things, you know. Good gracious professorish me.”

“Just shut-up and listen. Don’t ever be convinced to do something you don’t want to do. Period.”

That’s when Schwarz Tauptinker joined the conversation. “I’m always convinced into everything, because…” Schwarz’s voice peaked. “…because I don’t care!”

“You don’t count,” Henry said. “You’re dumb.”

“Am not,” Schwarz retorted.

Henry laughed. “You’re just mad at me ’cause I wouldn’t race you earlier.”

Schwarz turned to me. “It’s not fair, P.VJ. I got these new sneakers and he won’t race me!”

I nodded. “That isn’t fair.”

“Go long.” Henry laughed.

“I will…” Schwarz said. “As soon as you come with me.”

What happened next happened too fast. Schwarz dumped water (from his water bottle, I think) all over Henry.

Fats Henry took off down the street in pursuit of Schwarz.

So I suppose Schwarz got his race.

This professor is still trying to figure out if Henry was convinced to do something he didn’t want to do.

    Hilarious! And Henry was indeed manipulated. Smart of Schwarz.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:01

      He was! And it was indeed smart of Schwarz. Surprised the professor, you know.

  2. 3 erinkenobi2893 July 19, 2014 at 12:18

    Fats Henry’s accusation is unfounded. Schwarz can be quite clever in some ways!

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2014 at 15:47

      Schwarz can. And it’s surprising, you know. Fats Henry can be a bit overbearing at times, and he’s usually wrong. Throw a pie at him, please.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 July 20, 2014 at 18:29

        Gladly. *throws a MUD pie at Henry* There, that should do the trick. And he can’t eat it, either. :-P

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 13:09

        He’s roaring. He might charge us now!

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 July 22, 2014 at 18:40

        *shrugs* I may not have graduated cum laude from jousting school, but at least I know the basics. :-P

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 20:00

        Palpatine did, I hear.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 July 22, 2014 at 23:55

        Palpatine? He must have bribed the professors. He couldn’t keep his seat if his horse was a sweet-tempered, lazy pony. And he had this sneaky way of… well, ambling up, strangling the horse as he went, and clobbering people on the head for no good reason.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke July 23, 2014 at 13:24

        You’re probably right. I don’t think he can walk quite well either.

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 July 24, 2014 at 13:08

        No, I think he waddles. >:-D

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 14:03

        Or floats, I guess.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 July 24, 2014 at 14:05

        Ehhh… *throws a chicken at Palpacreep to see how he’ll react*

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 14:07

        *strikes it with electricity, I’ll bet*

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 July 24, 2014 at 14:10

        Probably true.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 18:00

        *throws pie at him*

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 July 24, 2014 at 23:34

        *throws a trashy old pillow at him*

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke July 25, 2014 at 13:50

        *laughs* He deserves all of this.

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 July 25, 2014 at 14:26

        Yes, he does.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke July 26, 2014 at 14:31

        *nods*

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 July 26, 2014 at 16:22

        *force-feeds Palpacreep cheap peanut butter*

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke July 27, 2014 at 15:41

        It’s getting stuck in his throat! *laughs*

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 July 27, 2014 at 18:15

        *makes him swallow* Isn’t this disgusting and delightful? X-P

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:04

        It is! I love it.

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 July 28, 2014 at 18:59

        *puts disgusting fake-milk products on Sidious’ head to melt*

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:02

        *gags* I hope he survives this!

      • 27 erinkenobi2893 July 29, 2014 at 20:05

        >:-D Mwhaahahahahahah!

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:29

        *laughs too*

      • 29 erinkenobi2893 July 30, 2014 at 17:55

        *pours cheap maple syrup over the disgusting fake cheese* >:-D

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:05

        *looks away and laughs*

      • 31 erinkenobi2893 July 31, 2014 at 14:05

        That is so disgusting, now. Do you think we should dump him in a muddy pond, or should we let him get a shower?

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:19

        Muddy pond! He deserves it after all.

      • 33 erinkenobi2893 August 1, 2014 at 12:06

        *uses the Force and dumps Palpacreep in a muddy pond* >:-D

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:04

        But he might get mad!

      • 35 erinkenobi2893 August 1, 2014 at 16:06

        So? :-P I can deflect Force lightning!

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:11

        But can you fight him?

      • 37 erinkenobi2893 August 2, 2014 at 12:38

        I can try. (And if not, I can learn. ;-) BEST LINE FROM A FAIRYTALE EVAR!)

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:35

        I’ve never…is it a book?

      • 39 erinkenobi2893 August 3, 2014 at 23:35

        The whole passage is between (I think) someone named Jack and a troll. “Hi!” “Hi yourself!” “Can you fight?” “If not, I can learn!” And then Jack kills the troll. X-D

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 13:12

        *laughing* Now doesn’t that make you feel bad for the troll?

      • 41 erinkenobi2893 August 4, 2014 at 15:48

        Maybe a little, but the troll was going to kill him anyway, and had kidnapped several princesses….

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 23:40

        Well, princesses can be annoying, you know.

      • 43 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 16:02

        They can be, but we must not generalize.

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke August 5, 2014 at 19:14

        Oh yes we must!

      • 45 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 20:15

        And bump into the exception that disproves the rule? No thanks!

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 13:29

        *laughs*

      • 47 erinkenobi2893 August 6, 2014 at 14:49

        ;-P

  3. 48 desertdweller29 July 18, 2014 at 18:59

    Never underestimate Schwarz! Never!

    • 49 Professor VJ Duke July 19, 2014 at 01:09

      Yes, I agree. How about underestimate the professor?

      • 50 desertdweller29 July 19, 2014 at 14:13

        Most definitely, NEVER underestimate the Professor! :)

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2014 at 15:47

        ‘Cause he bites.

  4. 52 L. Marie July 18, 2014 at 13:43

    I want to know who won the race. I hope Schwarz, since Fats Henry planned to do him bodily harm.

    • 53 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:35

      I’m sad to say that Fats won, and caught Schwarz!

      • 54 L. Marie July 21, 2014 at 14:54

        Oh dear. :-(

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 17:49

        Yes, but Mr. Magi stopped Fats from doing anything mean.

  5. 56 Me, Myself and DIY July 18, 2014 at 12:04

    HA! Absolutely he was. Manipulative of Schwarz – just like a kid! Can’t wait to see what’s new!?

    • 57 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 13:07

      *laughing* He was! Henry should have shown…some restraint!

      Oh yes. We’re excited about it. Has to do with ripping movies. What do you think?

  6. 58 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 18, 2014 at 03:27

    I can relate a bit to this idea of people trying to convince one to change. My sister guilted to into changing my travel plans. Instead of turning left I turned right and ended up 4 hours in the wrong direction…meaning not towards Texas. Agghh! LOL…I’m simply far too gullible.

    I had an xray recently and I also found it strange that everyone left the room but me…seems sketchy, don’t you think, Duke.
    *laughing*

    No skit today makes me cranky, by the way.

    • 59 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:47

      *laughing* Never listen to little sisters! I think that’s a rule to go by, but I wouldn’t be sure. The professor is vicious and gullible, you know.

      Yes! Do you suppose they were passing harmful rays into you?

      I’m sorry! Did you miss it badly?

      • 60 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 18, 2014 at 14:36

        I have two…I have to listen to somebody, Duke. *laughing* You shouldn’taugh at me…look at where I am!! Being gullible creates laughter.

        Yes and I let them…stupid.

        Well, yes.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:45

        I know you do! And you’re all very feisty together. *laughs* I won’t laugh! I’ll try not too.

        Me too! I was stupid. Time for war. They took advantage of us.

        New things are on the way, though!

      • 62 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 18, 2014 at 18:48

        We are and you like that about us. *smiles brightly* It is hard not to laugh… ha! What am I doing! Ahhh.

        They totally did…gullible, indeed.

        I believe you, Duke.

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke July 19, 2014 at 01:08

        *laughs* No laughing, Audith! You’re making me laugh!

        We should de-throat them.

        I keep saying it, I know.

      • 64 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 19, 2014 at 05:48

        I may never see home again…wondering aimlessly across the plains of the midwest. Begging for water, taking pictures of buffalo and riding a train. *giggle*

        You are so vicious!!!!!! Goodness.

        You’re something, Duke, truly.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2014 at 15:45

        That sounds…adventurous! Like a cowboy.

        *smiles bigly*

      • 66 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 20, 2014 at 21:22

        Sounds…like the late 1800s. Yes, a bit like something a cowboy would do. I’m no cowboy.

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 13:13

        Neither am I. Too dusty, don’t you think?

      • 68 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 21, 2014 at 14:34

        Far too dusty. *coughs* Suppose we’ll find a baseball game or movie around here? Tumbleweeds are creepy, Duke. Always rolling around all determined to hit me…

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 17:48

        I’ve never met any tumbleweeds. I bet they’d be somewhat interesting to speak with, though. No, I bet not. We’d better ask Charlie what to do.

      • 70 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 22, 2014 at 04:33

        …because they’ve been so many places? Is Charlie a cowboy?

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:37

        No! Charlie is a ninja slug.

      • 72 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 24, 2014 at 02:31

        Does he wear white pjs and a red belt?

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 13:59

        All the time!

      • 74 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 24, 2014 at 22:39

        *smiles* Yeah.

  7. 75 walt walker July 17, 2014 at 23:21

    Well, I would say that, to be fair, everyone in the race should have new sneakers. And there should be a starting gun. And we should be able to place bets on the winner.

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:37

      Yes, I say you’re right. Who would you bet on? I think…Schwarz would be my pick.

  8. 77 The Dancing Rider July 17, 2014 at 19:58

    Ha, ha, ha. I think everyone got something in this conversation — even if it was being pushed into something they didn’t want to do! :)

    (Btw, I’m happy with whatever is done here, skits or no skits, etc.)

    • 78 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:49

      The professor ended up on the good side of things, wouldn’t you say?

      (Thanks, DR. *bows* I appreciate it!)

      • 79 FictionFan July 18, 2014 at 01:23

        I’m not. I demand skits!!! *makes placards and organises march on the White House*

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:38

        *laughing* Right you are, FEF! I wouldn’t dream of…quitting forever, you know.

      • 81 FictionFan July 18, 2014 at 14:10

        Phew! *doesn’t hit Professor over head with placard*

      • 82 The Dancing Rider July 18, 2014 at 13:29

        Oh yes, the Professor certainly did! :)

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:34

        Well, we gave it a little thought!

  9. 84 Lady Cheetah July 17, 2014 at 19:44

    P. VJ you must reside somewhere in the northeast because you wrote sneakers and not tennis shoes (wink)

    • 85 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:47

      Oh! You’re getting too brilliant for me. You’re right, I do. But the interesting thing is, I’ve always referred to them as tennis shoes.

      • 86 Lady Cheetah July 18, 2014 at 00:01

        Ah…now that is a mystery…

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:38

        But the professor isn’t.

  10. 88 Debbie July 17, 2014 at 15:30

    YES! Poor Henry was convinced to do something he didn’t want to do. However, that’s the way of life, isn’t it? We say we don’t want to do something, then something happens that convinces us otherwise. I’d imagine anybody would race after someone who poured water on top of them (by the way, was it hot or cold water??)

    • 89 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:36

      It was bottled, but it was hot, since it’d been out a while. Makes it worse, huh?

  11. 90 Simply Skeptical July 17, 2014 at 15:23

    Other “elements” brought to the PL? What clever schemes does the Professor have up his sleeve now? The creativity here is mind boggling.

    Agreed dentist’s x-rays are $$$ in their eyes. Everyone, regardless of the pressure hype, should be discerning and use their beans when it comes to decision making in all things.

    So, Schwarz isn’t as dumb as old Henry thinks eh? Go Schwarz!!! (laughing).

    • 91 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:36

      Oh…it’s more like dadblamery that we have coming! It’s rather depressing you know.

      Yes, quite right! Don’t you think we should charge our dentists for getting to look at our teeth? I think so!

      It would seem so!

  12. 92 Julie Harris July 17, 2014 at 13:49

    Lol!! Poor Henry…Schwartz is quite the clever one!

    • 93 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 15:01

      He–surprisingly–was! Do you think Henry caught him?

  13. 94 Hazy July 17, 2014 at 13:38

    Looking forward to hear (or see) these new elements you speak of! I bet they would be nice.

    I didn’t realize FH felt strongly about such things either! He makes a good point. I don’t like staying under the sun too long. I even wear sunscreen just walking around the city. *laughs*

    I think it was more like he was manipulated to do something he didn’t want to do. Either way, Schwarz wins, don’t you think?

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 15:01

      Or scary! Sometimes I scare myself with what I’m about to do, yo know.

      That’s a good idea. I don’t wear much often. And I probably should, huh?

      I think so. Unless Henry catches him!

      • 96 Hazy July 18, 2014 at 11:48

        *laughs* I hope not. Well, I am a scaredy cat, so I’ll probably get scared before you get scared.

        *nods nods* you should! Especially when you play tennis in an outdoor court!

        I kinda doubt Henry will catch him! I think Schwarz runs fast and has tricks to run extra fast. Maybe his new sneakers are special! (like the winged ones that Hermes has in Greek myth)

        Do you think Mr. R vs Henry in a running race will be a fair match?

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 13:03

        We’ll just have Weatherly get involved. He gives me confidence.

        I know! I’m so bad at that sort of thing. I should do it!

        Hey yeah! I love the winged shoes idea. I’d like some, actually, wouldn’t you.

        Well…no! *laughs* Do you? I bet Mr. R would lose horribly!

      • 98 Hazy September 1, 2014 at 12:12

        *nods nods*

        I would too! The traffic here can be so terribly horribly unnerving! Do you think those shoes would be strong enough for traveling across countries?

        *laughs* I think Mr. R would lose too.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:00

        I bet so! I mean, they better be!

        Poor Mr. R… *Laughs*

  14. 100 Susan P July 17, 2014 at 13:37

    Laughing. Medical – both human and veterinarian – people are always trying to upsell. Ordinary people simply can’t afford all of that. Even some extra-ordinary people can’t afford it.

    What was really fun, though, was Schwarz finally pulling something over that old gas bag Fats Henry. *GRIN*

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 15:00

      We shouldn’t need to afford that! Do you suppose we should declare war for that sort of thing?

      *laughing lots* What a great name! But…what if you hurt Fats’ feelings?

      • 102 Susan P July 17, 2014 at 18:43

        You have a point there. The real gas bag is Mr. R.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:43

        I thought you liked him lots!

      • 104 Susan P July 18, 2014 at 16:08

        I like him…far, far away.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:49

        Oh, you have to meet him one day.

      • 106 Susan P July 18, 2014 at 17:55

        Will you come along? I need someone to tell me there is an emergency and I have to leave.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke July 19, 2014 at 01:04

        Mr. R probably wouldn’t believe that, you know.

      • 108 Susan P July 19, 2014 at 18:28

        *sigh* The man natters on so…

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2014 at 15:52

        Natter…fabulous word. The professor natters on, too, you know.

      • 110 Susan P July 20, 2014 at 21:15

        I was referring to Mr. R. The professor hardly speaks at all.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 13:12

        Really? And here I thought I spoke too much.

      • 112 Susan P July 21, 2014 at 13:48

        Too much, and not a lot, Bilbo.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke July 21, 2014 at 17:05

        Why Bilbo?

      • 114 Susan P July 21, 2014 at 18:38

        Didn’t you have a game of riddles?

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:26

        Are you saying the professor is Gollum?

        Or Bilbo…

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:44

        Yes, maybe I am.

      • 118 Susan P July 23, 2014 at 01:38

        Do you eat second breakfasts? And go barefoot?

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke July 23, 2014 at 13:28

        No to both actually! Lunch is the best for me.

      • 120 Susan P July 23, 2014 at 17:26

        You go barefoot at lunch?

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke July 23, 2014 at 19:48

        I do not! Dadblameit…talk about twist replies!

      • 122 Susan P July 23, 2014 at 23:32

        You said you were a Hobbit. They don’t wear shoes.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 13:43

        I am not!

      • 124 Susan P July 24, 2014 at 14:37

        Then you must be Gollum.

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 18:02

        No, I’m the Mouth of Sauron.

      • 126 Susan P July 24, 2014 at 21:24

        *susan skips away*

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke July 25, 2014 at 13:32

        *laughs like the MoS*

      • 128 Susan P July 26, 2014 at 17:32

        *susan throws the ring into the fire as she runs*

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke July 27, 2014 at 15:43

        Told you I was ugly!

      • 130 Susan P July 30, 2014 at 00:29

        How did you get that from the ring of fire?

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:40

        You’re running from the horrid professor. The mind of the professor…can it be figured?

      • 132 Susan P July 30, 2014 at 17:34

        There’s another professor?

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:00

        Only two and they’re me.

      • 134 Susan P July 31, 2014 at 17:06

        I bet you three are more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:32

        I used to have a barrel of monkeys!

      • 136 Susan P August 1, 2014 at 19:29

        What happened to them?

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:14

        I think I got rid of them. Kept the MicP Team though.

  15. 138 PorterGirl July 17, 2014 at 13:24

    Schwarz was very, very clever there. He found a cunning way to make Henry race him! And I bet he won the race in his new sneakers.

    I have to tell you Professor, the absence of the Starship Excercise has left a big hole in my life. (Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate my life!)

    • 139 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 14:58

      Oh, I be he did, too. Though you know, Henry can go rather fast–for his size, I mean.

      *laughing* That is horrid! Are you holding up okay? We’re thinking about starting something with movies…what do you think?

      • 140 PorterGirl July 17, 2014 at 15:50

        I am getting through it somehow, with the help of an online support group set up especially *laughs*.

        Yeah – movies! Oh it would be so much fun. You chaps are so clever

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:39

        *laughing* Now I feel bad–like I’ve ruined your life!

        Thank you bunches! I hope it works. I might be in it…

      • 142 PorterGirl July 18, 2014 at 07:17

        You should be in it. I really hope you are.

        Don’t worry, I shall get my life back on track, once I get over the general sadness *laughs*

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:55

        It’ll be scary!

        Yes, we’re back on track soon…you know!

      • 144 PorterGirl July 18, 2014 at 13:10

        WooHoo! I shall be excited all over the weekend. I look forward to it.

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:34

        Good deal! That’s awesome.

  16. 146 FictionFan July 17, 2014 at 13:21

    (No skit??? Where’s my medicinal chocolate???)

    *laughing lots and lots* I may be being mean (which is very unlike me, as you know) but I do like seeing Henry made to look silly – especially when it’s my Schwarzy who achieves the feat! And the Professor makes a very valid point at the end. Although I hope the dentist doesn’t pour a bucket of water over his head the next time he needs an x-ray…

    • 147 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 14:56

      (So sorry! It’s my fault, too, I admit.)

      Yes, I will admit it freely: Schwarz was rather…brilliant. Now Fats Henry just wasn’t thinking that way, but we can’t say it makes him dull. Maybe it does. Schwarz’s sneakers–I forgot to add–were bright green. Ugly!

      *laughs* That’s never happened to me, yet!

      • 148 FictionFan July 17, 2014 at 19:28

        (Then we must find a suitable punishment. Hmm… *puts thinking cap on*)

        I’m glad you’ve finally realised the inner brilliance of my adorable Schwarzy! The ugly green sneakers are another fine example of that – no-one will ever want to steal them, eh? You underestimate him all the time, you know. (Yes, we can – Henry is dull! There!)

        Bet it will if you visit a dentist in the Punchy Lands!

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:44

        (Please don’t! *pleads*)

        But I think he loved the shoes! (I must admit, I did too.) (Poor Henry. In the way beginning, he was the most powerful!)

        I shoot dentists who make mistakes.

      • 150 FictionFan July 18, 2014 at 01:27

        (Oh, alright – I’ll let you off this time, but only because you’re so c&a when you plead.)

        I suspect my Schwarzy’s the kind of man who’d look good in anything. (Tchah! That must have been a long, long, long, long, long time ago, huuuuh?)

        So American!

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:39

        *wonders if this could be a new power*

        *laughs* You’re getting the Henry-ish down rather well. Yes, long before there was a Schwarz!

        I am, thank you!

      • 152 FictionFan July 18, 2014 at 14:13

        Ooh – it could be! A strong one too! I shall have to think of a counter-measure or you’ll be getting away with all kinds of stuff soon…

        Tchah! Without my Schwarzy, there could have been no PL!

        *laughing lots* Yes, you are!

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 16:37

        Tell me if you fine one, please.

        I know it’s hard to believe. But it’s true!

        And that’s a good thing! Though I bet I could blend in!

      • 154 FictionFan July 18, 2014 at 20:26

        Well, thank goodness he came along! Imagine the PL with no loon impersonations… *shudders*

        Where?

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke July 19, 2014 at 01:12

        I think the professor is a type of loon.

        Anywhere!

      • 156 FictionFan July 19, 2014 at 16:24

        I hope you’re a red-throated loon – that sounds very dramatic!

        On the field at Yankee Stadium?

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke July 20, 2014 at 15:48

        Just looked the beast up. I must needs get one!

        Everywhere, of course! In Moscow, Vienna, Glasgow, Florence…Paris…Mexico City…well maybe not there.

      • 158 FictionFan July 21, 2014 at 21:08

        Why not there? Swap the top hat for a sombrero and the clarinet for maracas – sorted!

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:31

        *laughing* Yes, I suppose that would work! Clarinet would expand in that heat and die anyway.

      • 160 FictionFan July 22, 2014 at 13:32

        Ah! The clarinet must be Scottish then…

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:43

        Well, it would crack in that cold weather…

      • 162 FictionFan July 22, 2014 at 13:47

        I could knit it a little jacket.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 13:50

        *laughing* That would be most kind of you indeed! And I’d need to borrow some of your olive oil.

      • 164 FictionFan July 22, 2014 at 13:53

        Good noodles! You’re surely not going to cook it??

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke July 22, 2014 at 19:47

        Oh no! It’s like…cream for a clarinet! Keeps it moist and juicy.

      • 166 FictionFan July 22, 2014 at 22:58

        Sounds like a nice piece of carrot-cake! Yummy!

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke July 23, 2014 at 13:17

        Oh you wouldn’t like the taste! (Add carrot cake to the menu when I come, please.)

      • 168 FictionFan July 23, 2014 at 15:26

        Will do!

        Haggis
        Sheep’s head broth
        Black pudding
        Deep fried Mars Bars
        Popcorn
        Beef from an egg
        Carrot cake

        Yummy?!?

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke July 23, 2014 at 19:37

        Now hold on a second! Sheep’s head broth and black pudding? We didn’t agree on those!

      • 170 FictionFan July 23, 2014 at 23:23

        Oh, I’m sure we must have done – you’ll love them! And cranachan, of course. And maybe a wee clootie dumplin’.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 13:41

        *laughs* Most ingenious names! I’ll try the cranachan and the clothed dumpling. What a weird dinner it will be!

      • 172 FictionFan July 24, 2014 at 15:23

        It will! Clootie dumplin’s nice though, if a bit stodgy. And then you can have a fly cemetery with your tea…

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke July 24, 2014 at 18:07

        What’s that, FEF? Now…seriously…what is a normal dinner like in Scotland?

      • 174 FictionFan July 24, 2014 at 21:56

        It’s a pastry slice filled with sultanas – the dead flies. British humour… *blushes for her nation*. Hmm…well, years ago it would probably have been soup followed by some kind of meat plus potatoes plus a veg, but these days it’s as likely to be Italian or Chinese or Indian. More likely, in fact. No tater tots sadly…

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke July 25, 2014 at 13:36

        *laughs* The sultanas must be deadly looking! No need! Be patriotic! That makes sense. It really does. (I’ll bring you tt’s when I come.)

  17. 176 Angeline M July 17, 2014 at 13:20

    Ah, Schwarz is a tricky one. I am smiling at envisioning the scene of Fats Henry chasing Schwarz down the street. I’m not sure Fats was convinced to do something he didn’t want to do either…more like provoked. Or is that the same thing?

    • 177 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 14:55

      I’m not sure! You bring up a great point. Is provoking someone the same as convincing…oh dear. What do you think overall?

      • 178 Angeline M July 17, 2014 at 20:02

        Maybe provoking is just convincing in a more forceful manner. That Schwarz!

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 22:50

        You’ve got it! Yes…but still no match for DS.

      • 180 Angeline M July 18, 2014 at 00:12

        There is no match for DS.

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke July 18, 2014 at 12:38

        I must agree. Maybe Mr. Magi?

  18. 182 Susan P July 17, 2014 at 13:20

    Wait! It’s Thursday already? I need to go find a calendar.

    • 183 Professor VJ Duke July 17, 2014 at 14:53

      Yes, I must say, the professor is off balance as well. What a pity!

      • 184 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member July 17, 2014 at 17:07

        Don’t worry, each day only lasts a day… Which isn’t very long.

      • 185 Susan P July 17, 2014 at 18:42

        O no. The professor must take care if he is off balance. Ruber could get up to mischief behind his back.


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