Segment A
Punchy Proverbs

PP's

Today, we have a guest proverb from The Dancing Rider, whose awesome blog you can check out here.

(1) Doing the right thing may not always be the legal thing. ~ The Dancing Rider

(2) Debating is good; arguing is better; laughing is best. ~ V. Shnodgrate

Segment B
Severe Weather Report

weather

Zez has threatened to fire off many rockets unless his demands are met. This is not severe weather—yet. If he does fire off the rockets, we’re sure severe weather will occur.

Weather tip: Don’t make Zez cranky.

Segment C
Featured Story: Zez
by J. Freedwoppen

Zez—who lives atop Mount Zezny—said something quite disturbing earlier this week.

He said:

“Unless the wicked ones of the Punchy Lands concede to my demands, I will release many, many rockets. Oh yes I will—says the Zez.”

He gurgled a lot after that, by the way and along the road.

But King Arthur is unwilling to concede to Zez’s demands—which are for Arthur to give up his crown and relinquish all his power to Zez.

Mr. Magi is about trying to solve the situation.

It’s unclear why Zez—who normally doesn’t wish to deal in such affairs—is interested in King Arthur’s crown.

Segment D
MicP Studios—Behind the Scenes
by Nicholas Warren

Oh, what to tell today. I’ll start off with an update.

Our movie critique thingy is moving forward. Kind of. There have been some setbacks. (If you don’t know what movie thing I’m talking about, refer to the previous article I wrote, here. Or bother VJ.) Hopefully… Well, I’m not sure of the date. But it’s moving forward.

VJ and I had to watch a movie last night (direct consequence of the above stated) and I think it bored us both. I’m not sure that either of us are movie fans. Maybe he is. But it was boring, anyway. (Wonder what makes a movie good as compared to interesting?)

VJ stated that he was getting tired of the schedule of the blog. I’m not sure if that means something is about to change. Maybe it was just momentary. But be ready, just in case, for some type of change. Maybe an earthquake or tornado. Also…I regretfully inform you that too much work, too much laziness, and many other factors, have determined that there will probably be no skit (AurToon) Thursday.

Segment E
A Conversation

RUBER SALAMI: You know, I rather like the song “After the Love Has Gone.”
DADDY SALAMI: That’s because you’ve got a cur for a brain.
RUBER SALAMI: Now, how’s that even possible, eh?
DADDY SALAMI: I don’t know…think about it!
RUBER SALAMI: Okay. I’ve thought. And can’t come to a reasonable conclusion.
DADDY SALAMI: That’s because you have a cur for a brain! Hehaha!

    *smacks DS for calling everyone names* That wasn’t very nice at all.
    Both the proverbs are brilliant this week. :-)

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:31

      *bows* Thank you! *laughing lots* *DS get really mad* Oh dear…now what?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 July 30, 2014 at 18:03

        Now, we repel his attacks! :-P *dons war helmet and impersonates Skandian* :-P

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:06

        Who’s Skandian?

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 July 31, 2014 at 14:06

        A Skandian is a person from a country called Skandia (basically Norway or Iceland or something; it’s a basically Viking culture) in the Ranger’s Apprentice series.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:20

        Ooo…can I train there?

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 August 1, 2014 at 12:09

        I suppose. Only if you meet a guy called Erak, then be careful and don’t cross him or he’ll brain you with a battleax. You can cheek the person called Borsa at will. :-P

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:05

        Okay. And I will. I like to mess with people!

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 August 1, 2014 at 22:25

        ;-) Except for the people who it’s not safe to mess with. :-P

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:29

        Like Palpatine!

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 August 3, 2014 at 23:32

        No, if you know what you’re doing, messing with Palpacreeps is perfectly safe. Messing with Obi-Wan, now… especially if you mention Anakin or Qui-Gon… now that is dangerous.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 13:09

        If I met him in battle, I’d say, “You let Qui-Gon down. You killed him!”

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 August 4, 2014 at 15:46

        He’d probably kick your behind. When he’s mad, things happen. I mean, when Obi-Wan was distressed by Adi Gallia’s death, Savage Oppress (who murdered Gallia) walked away minus an arm!

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 23:38

        Maybe…but I’m more powerful than Savage Oppress!

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 14:18

        Ehh, that would be difficult. I sense a distinct disadvantage in Oppress’s lack of control or finesse.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke August 5, 2014 at 19:10

        YOu do have a point.

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 20:13

        Of course. Dooku whipped Savage in training, over and over again, and Savage didn’t last even as long as Obi-Wan did against Dooku on Geonosis, and Obi-Wan wasn’t even at his best, or at the peak of his skills, then. His saber skills had taken a leap forward since Geonosis, so it’s no wonder Savage got fried. Obi-Wan has a defined increase in ability in between AotC and RotS (that completely burns out any actual substance to Anakin’s consistent teasing him by calling him old,) and if he had had a chance to continue, he would have likely become better still at the discipline. It was his exile and Anakin’s betrayal that really killed him, I think.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 13:27

        That’s a great point. I think you’re right. That did kill him. I feel bad for Obi every so often.

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 August 6, 2014 at 14:47

        Indeed… What’s worse, Obi-Wan believes he deserves everything bad that happens to him.
        The quote from AotC was ominous in so many ways…

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 20:31

        Smack some sense into him. Will you, Erin?

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 August 6, 2014 at 22:08

        I can try. :-)

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke August 7, 2014 at 14:23

        I’ll do it–if you prefer.

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 August 7, 2014 at 15:57

        No, no. I’ll give him a talking to. :-)

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke August 7, 2014 at 18:29

        Make sure to scare him or something.

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 August 8, 2014 at 00:31

        Scare Obi-Wan? I didn’t think that was possible. :-P
        Back. He apologized and agreed to “be good”, whatever that means…. ANAKIN! GET OFF ME! It’s not appropriate to put your chin on the head of someone who is not your love interest! That is DISGUSTING!!!

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke August 9, 2014 at 14:26

        *laughs and pushes Anakin back* Does he always pick on you?

      • 27 erinkenobi2893 August 9, 2014 at 18:10

        Anakin? Of course he does. Obi-Wan? I think I actually pick on him, more… *whispers* He doesn’t particularly like hugs. And I hug him all the time. You’re not allowed to tell, though, for his sake–not for mine.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke August 9, 2014 at 22:08

        I won’t tell a thing. Though…what if I fight him one day? I might have to mention it–as a passing comment.

      • 29 erinkenobi2893 August 9, 2014 at 22:09

        I think he’d be just annoyed. I mean, I think he’s getting used to me hugging him. :-P

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke August 9, 2014 at 22:16

        It’s good for him.

      • 31 erinkenobi2893 August 10, 2014 at 12:25

        I think it is. I don’t know if he agrees. :-P

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke August 10, 2014 at 18:25

        Yes. I bet he doesn’t.

      • 33 erinkenobi2893 August 10, 2014 at 18:43

        Or more likely still, it’s just something he bears stoically. :-P

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke August 11, 2014 at 12:59

        But he might like it. We can never know.

      • 35 erinkenobi2893 August 11, 2014 at 19:47

        That’s the thing about Obi-Wan. If he doesn’t openly declare his displeasure or say that something is okay, we don’t really know his opinion.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke August 12, 2014 at 00:28

        I think he doesn’t know how to express himself well enough.

      • 37 erinkenobi2893 August 12, 2014 at 12:19

        That’s true. But he’s more oriented on other people. :-P

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke August 12, 2014 at 13:01

        Yes…it’s a wonder.

      • 39 erinkenobi2893 August 12, 2014 at 15:03

        It’s not in his nature to be selfish.

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke August 12, 2014 at 19:59

        Well…that’s true. But training Anakin was sort of selfish.

      • 41 erinkenobi2893 August 12, 2014 at 23:25

        Was it? I don’t see how. He could have sacrificed his own future several times over there, but he kept going anyway. (Ultimately he DID sacrifice his own future, and lost everything he had ever fought for… really sad.)

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke August 13, 2014 at 13:05

        I suppose you’re right. But he should have killed Anakin then on Mustafar!

      • 43 erinkenobi2893 August 13, 2014 at 19:32

        Perhaps, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. Unbeknownst to moviegoers, they just saw the poor man’s limits.

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke August 13, 2014 at 19:50

        He did seem rather distraught.

      • 45 erinkenobi2893 August 13, 2014 at 19:55

        Probably even more so than he let on, knowing Obi-Wan!

      • 46 erinkenobi2893 July 31, 2014 at 14:07

        (It’s funny because I could not possibly look less like a Skandian. :-P)

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:21

        Really? Well, what are they supposed to look like?

      • 48 erinkenobi2893 August 1, 2014 at 12:11

        Tall, blond, well-built… I don’t qualify. Though I’m tall, I’m not particularly broad-shouldered, and I sort of look like Maureen O’Hara… With sort-of auburn hair that’s also almost chestnut. I don’t look Skandian. *the helmet slides down onto the bridge of my nose*

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:05

        *laughing* Well, Maureen had a great look! Not sure I’d qualify either.

      • 50 erinkenobi2893 August 2, 2014 at 12:35

        Yes, she did. ;-) (“The Quiet Man” and “McLintock” are such fun movies.)

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:34

        I love McLintock!

      • 52 erinkenobi2893 August 3, 2014 at 23:32

        ^_^ The governor is such a flabby nincompoop! And the final scene with the spanking! X-D

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 13:10

        That governor is horrid! *laughing* John is the bestest of the best.

      • 54 erinkenobi2893 August 4, 2014 at 15:46

        John? Which John… I don’t remember a John in “McLintock”.

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 23:38

        Oh, I meant John Wayne overall. His name was George in it, wasn’t it?

      • 56 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 14:37

        OH! I see. Yes, John Wayne movies are AWESOME!!!
        Yes, it was. The character was called George Washington McLintock. (I did like Burnbaum, too. ;-) )

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke August 5, 2014 at 19:10

        Yeah, Burnbaum was funny. The whole movie was good.

      • 58 erinkenobi2893 August 5, 2014 at 20:13

        And what’s his name, the person who is always called “Indian” but who has so much more to him! X-D

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 13:28

        I forget it! Something funny. Love your new gravatar!

      • 60 erinkenobi2893 August 6, 2014 at 14:48

        Thanks. :-) I’m just changing ’cause I’m bored. :-P And the old one I’ve had for months and months…

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 20:31

        What’s that mean for me, dadblameit?!

      • 62 erinkenobi2893 August 6, 2014 at 22:08

        *shrugs* I was just a bit tired of Mordred. I don’t have a nice custom one like you do. ;-)

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke August 7, 2014 at 14:24

        It was easy to make. Pixlr. It’s a great place.

      • 64 erinkenobi2893 August 7, 2014 at 15:58

        Interesting. I was thinking of making one that said “Life is hard for fans of Star Wars.” :-P

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke August 7, 2014 at 18:29

        That’d be cool! Go for it.

      • 66 erinkenobi2893 August 8, 2014 at 00:31

        I’ll have to figure out how, first…

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke August 9, 2014 at 14:26

        On Pixlr? I’ll help, if you’d like.

      • 68 erinkenobi2893 August 9, 2014 at 18:10

        That would be great, thanks. :-)

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke August 9, 2014 at 22:09

        Sure. Well…first step is to go into Pixlr Editor and create a new image. Make it 600 by 600, I think.

      • 70 erinkenobi2893 August 9, 2014 at 23:57

        Oh, dear. I don’t even know what site that is. *sigh*

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke August 10, 2014 at 18:12

        Oh, just Pixlr.com.

      • 72 erinkenobi2893 August 10, 2014 at 18:15

        It’s going to have to wait. I’m having a hard time keeping this all together at the moment. *sigh*

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke August 10, 2014 at 18:25

        *nods* Stay strong!

      • 74 erinkenobi2893 August 10, 2014 at 18:43

        Thanks. :-)

  2. 75 Me, Myself and DIY July 29, 2014 at 12:11

    I warned you about the movie thing – If you don’t like movies, why choose that task? Sounds like you need to pick something that keeps you inspired! Rip something else then huh? As for proverbs, the 2nd rules my family…if you can get to the laughter part – sometimes that’s not how it ends. :)

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:16

      I know–and you have a good point! But I love ripping things. Like, right now, it’s great fun ripping this movie. *smiles bigly* It’s worth it, you see. Don’t you thinks so?

      Well, debates are good overall, aren’t they?

      • 77 Me, Myself and DIY July 29, 2014 at 13:21

        I suppose. Depending on how everyone handles it.

        As long as you can get through a movie to rip it. ;)

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 17:50

        Right. Though battles are nice!

        That’s so true…

  3. 79 Lady Cheetah July 29, 2014 at 03:53

    The first proverb is the definite winner!

    • 80 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:10

      It is tops for sure!

  4. 81 Angeline M July 29, 2014 at 00:49

    I like Dancing Rider’s proverb, but it leaves me kind of wondering about things. And Schnod’s just needs to leave off the laughing part…I like to just debate and argue ( I may be with Zez today, so don’t make me cranky either). Sigh…I love DS, cur brain and all.

    • 82 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:10

      *laughing* DS…appeals to the vicious side! Do you like Zez, too?

      • 83 Angeline M July 30, 2014 at 05:08

        I’m beginning to think maybe so.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:46

        Yes, I like him lots.

  5. 85 Sonya Solomonovich July 29, 2014 at 00:34

    I like Daddy Salami’s logic!
    By the way, which movie did you see? I love movies but when I see a non-interesting one, it is very vexing.

    • 86 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:10

      So do I! He’s vicious, huh?

      It is! Well…promise you won’t laugh the professor to scorn?

      • 87 Sonya Solomonovich July 30, 2014 at 01:39

        I would never laugh the professor to scorn!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:42

        Well, then, Divergent!

      • 89 Sonya Solomonovich July 30, 2014 at 18:12

        The first 5 mimutes, I should say :)

      • 90 Sonya Solomonovich July 30, 2014 at 18:05

        That does sound like a vexing movie! Similarly, I once attempted to watch the Hunger Games and could not get past the first 5 minutes.

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:06

        Interesting! I was wondering about that movie. Was it badly made?

      • 92 Sonya Solomonovich July 31, 2014 at 21:48

        It was not too badly made, but for some reason I found it irritating. It might be that it was taking itself too seriously.

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 00:05

        For sure. No warriors, I guess?

      • 94 Sonya Solomonovich August 1, 2014 at 00:35

        Or rather wimpy-looking warriors :)

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 15:56

        *laughing* Who’s a good warrior? I think Hector was. Is. He’s alive in the PL, I’ll bet.

      • 96 Sonya Solomonovich August 1, 2014 at 23:32

        Ivanhoe, Conan the Barbarian, John Wayne :) Glad to know Hector is alive and well in the PL. Give him my best! I wonder whether Hector could defeat Manly Man in a fair fight?

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:30

        I love John Wayne! Probably MM, don’t you think?

      • 98 Sonya Solomonovich August 4, 2014 at 20:16

        That’s awesome! I’m going to blog about him one of these days…
        Anything could happen. Wasn’t MM defeated by Fats Henry in some punchy brawl?

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 23:50

        Yes, please do!

        I don’t remember. But how interesting!

  6. 100 walt walker July 29, 2014 at 00:12

    Well, if I’m reading this correctly, there is some question as to whether either of you are movie fans. I may have that wrong. But doesn’t that pop the wheels off the wagon? A bit?

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:09

      Well, not at all! It’s fun ripping once the watching been’s done. I think this one was particularly wicked. You’d like to see a movie ripping, right?

      • 102 walt walker July 29, 2014 at 20:34

        I would. Rip away. Shred one.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:32

        Order coming up!

  7. 104 The Dancing Rider July 28, 2014 at 21:29

    Thank you, Professor! For the blog mention and the published proverb. (Bows) However, I find I really like Schnod’s in terms of the “laughing is best” part. Wish I could do that more!

    I love the logic that severe weather will occur if rockets are fired. Strange, but I bet true. Now, what type of weather?! :) But his being interested in Arthur’s crown? Doubly strange. Leave it to Mr. Magi — hopefully whose name will come in handy in resolving this … threat.

    Change is ok in the PL. Go for it, movie thing or not.

    LOVE DS, just love his response. It figures doesn’t it?!

    • 105 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:06

      More than welcome! Thank you for the proverb. Tis my pleasure. Yes, that laughing part is so important. I’m working on mastering it.

      I’m not sure what type of weather. I suppose it depends on the rockets. Maybe all the seas will dry up? I think that happened once in the PL. The professor is rather sure that Mr. Magi will work it out somehow.

      Thanks, DR! We will do it.

      *laughing* It does! He did have a spicy response!

  8. 106 icedmocha34 July 28, 2014 at 18:12

    A good movie has a satisfying ending. Like how even though Tris dies in the end of Allegiant, it’s satisfying, because Tris is just so…killable, I guess. A interesting movie would be like…The Village. Great concept, he perfect amount of horror and creepiness, and ends perfectly!

    • 107 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:01

      Aha! So, she dies at the end of Allegiant? That is shocking. It’s a wonder too. Does Four live? I think you got the difference perfectly.

      • 108 icedmocha34 July 29, 2014 at 23:06

        FOUR WILL ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:41

        Oh, he will not! I’d get him with my katana!

      • 110 icedmocha34 July 29, 2014 at 23:42

        What?????
        FOUR HATER!!!!

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:36

        Yes…his ears, you know.

      • 112 icedmocha34 July 31, 2014 at 00:40

        Oh…good point… :D But his face is beautiful.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:19

        He has evil eyes, you know.

      • 114 icedmocha34 July 31, 2014 at 18:25

        WHUT THE HECK ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT???????

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:59

        Like his ears, so are his eyes!

      • 116 icedmocha34 July 29, 2014 at 23:07

        No, but seriously, yes he does live. XD
        Tris dies, but I’m kinda glad coz that leaves Four without a girlfriend…mwahaha…

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:41

        But isn’t Four weird looking? I mean, Eric was cool!

      • 118 icedmocha34 July 29, 2014 at 23:42

        Weird looking??? Ahhhhheemmmmm
        He’s Theo James. He’s hot.
        Trust me, he’s not weird looking. I have two posters of him in my house. He’s beautiful.

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:36

        Goodness! Do you really? But he has such a long name.

      • 120 icedmocha34 July 31, 2014 at 01:21

        Theo James? How is that long?

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:20

        But that’s not his full name!

      • 122 icedmocha34 July 31, 2014 at 18:25

        …is isnt?

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 00:00

        No! It’s Theodore…and it goes on and on.

  9. 124 Debbie July 28, 2014 at 17:51

    I like your water background, Professor — it’s new, isn’t it? Please tell me it is, and I haven’t been unobservant all this time.
    I’m not pleased with Schnodgrate’s proverb today. While the first and third sections ring true, I’m not so sure arguing should be included at all. I would, however, be inclined to agree that eating chocolate might be better!
    I think I know what you mean about the blog schedule. Sometimes we put ourselves on a regimen, then find that that doesn’t allow for anything spontaneous. What is it they say? The only thing certain is change? Is that even true??

    • 125 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:00

      *laughs* It is new, Debbie! I just changed it. Many thanks! (I’m unobservant, you know.)

      Arguing is a tricky business. I don’t like it one bits, you know. Laughter is better.

      So true! Thinks are getting shaken up here. I’m in the mood for change!

  10. 126 AmyRose July 28, 2014 at 17:49

    I’ve been gone so long from this Land, I feel lost. Completely. Utterly. Lost. I feel awful, just so bad. I furgot how to smile life has been so hard. I always do the right thing, and even if the law says it is not legal, who is the law anyways? Who made them god? Just sayin’. I don’t like arguin’, tis a shame. I do like discussing without a fuss. Am I makin’ any sense at t’all? I don’t know. I just don’t. Gee whizzers. Life has been tough. Perhaps now that I have touched down in PL, life will get easier. xx LadyP

    • 127 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 12:59

      Hi LadyP! Does the PL make you smile? That’s great. It is a good point about the law. Don’t you suppose they think they’re the bosses?

      • 128 AmyRose July 29, 2014 at 18:35

        We both know who the real Boss is, Professor, and it aint measly little men who think and act like they are boss. I stick to what the Boss says. No one else. :-) Yes PL makes me smile …. if I can figure out what in tarnation is going on again here …. Tee hee xx LadyP

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:24

        *laughing* Oh, LadyP, should we rip movies?

      • 130 AmyRose July 30, 2014 at 00:15

        Um, gee, whatever floats your boat! Sure thing! Let’s rip movies …. *scratching head …. having no idea what “rip movies” means* But, hey, OK! Why not! You’re on, Prof!

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:38

        Now, LadyP. You know the professor loves to rip, don’t you?

      • 132 AmyRose July 30, 2014 at 17:26

        But of course I do! I wasn’t born yesterday you know.

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 12:55

        Today?

      • 134 AmyRose July 31, 2014 at 14:59

        I’ve been around furever.

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

        100’s of years?

      • 136 AmyRose July 31, 2014 at 23:38

        More. F-U-R-E-V-E-R. Longs of times. Every night I go to the Rejuvenation Hall in the StandTall Mountains, where I am attended to very carefully to preserve this body. Ize gettin’ a wee bit weary though, truth be told, so maybe this will be my last time here. Then I go to NoSkyEternalFunHall. Nows ya know all that is to be known. Yep. Nows ya know.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 00:06

        Wow! The professor is amazed, LadyP.

      • 138 AmyRose August 1, 2014 at 00:40

        You should be. Wait again. I mean … You mean to tell me, I told YOU somethin’ YOU didn’t know? Now blow me silly! A feather could just knock me over! HOLY MOLY! I feel purty darn good, outsmartin’ a Professor and all. Truly yours, LadyP

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 15:57

        But this professor is dull, isn’t he?

      • 140 AmyRose August 1, 2014 at 16:00

        No never dull. Just muddled. That’s all! (smile)

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:10

        *laughs* You may be right!

      • 142 AmyRose August 1, 2014 at 16:24

        But of cours I am right. I am bright! Very! I am also Pink, a washout of Red, as if I had bled. Hmmmm…. So I am told.

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:07

        Pink isn’t close to red!

      • 144 AmyRose August 1, 2014 at 22:22

        *BIG eye roll* You have no idea what you are talking about. I do think you are colored blind! Besides LadyP IS the artist, not YOU. She KNOWS colors! *muttering …… ^(^*&&^&()*T*&*

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:23

        I am so an artist!

      • 146 AmyRose August 1, 2014 at 22:28

        Not! Do pray tell. HOW? You are a Professor! You are dull no I mean muddled. Errr, no, befuddled. *honestly, who does he think he is anyways?* ….. SMILING ……

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:29

        Do you think him a genius?

      • 148 AmyRose August 3, 2014 at 23:47

        By all means of course I do. And what say you about LadyP?

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 13:13

        LadyP is the real genius!

      • 150 AmyRose August 4, 2014 at 13:22

        *blushing* You are just too kind, Professor.

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 13:24

        *shakes LadyP’s hand*

      • 152 AmyRose August 4, 2014 at 14:44

        Aw shucks …….

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 15:25

        *laughs* I do have an orc-ish hand.

      • 154 AmyRose August 4, 2014 at 15:49

        Hmmmm …. and what exactly IS an orc-ish hand? Sweaty? Beefy? Soft? Plump? Manly? Calloused? Strong? ????

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

        Ugly!

      • 156 AmyRose August 5, 2014 at 01:41

        You must be mistaken for the hand I shook was by far ugly. It was manly! Professorish! Extremely handsome!

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke August 5, 2014 at 13:48

        Oh dear…really?

      • 158 AmyRose August 5, 2014 at 15:17

        But of course! No doubt in my mind.

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke August 5, 2014 at 19:12

        There is one small doubt. I can see it.

      • 160 AmyRose August 5, 2014 at 19:29

        Now I run away too. So there!

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 13:26

        I run faster!

      • 162 AmyRose August 6, 2014 at 15:16

        Do you wear Nikes? I RUN faster!

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke August 6, 2014 at 20:34

        I’m not sure what they are, actually.

  11. 164 InfiniteZip July 28, 2014 at 16:00

    Dancing rider has a pretty horse…I go with number one;) seeing Starz

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

      That is a pretty horse! The professor is ugly like an orc!

      • 166 InfiniteZip July 28, 2014 at 20:32

        What pray tell is an Orc?

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:04

        Well, Zippy, it’s one of those ugly things from Lord of the Rings.

      • 168 InfiniteZip July 29, 2014 at 13:09

        Never saw the movie…I’m bad, I know;). Was it the thing that loved the precious ring?

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:17

        That was Gollum. I think he was an elf. (Erin Kenobi would know all about this.) The orcs were in Sauron’s army!

  12. 170 L. Marie July 28, 2014 at 14:58

    I also love that song (After the Love Has Gone). In fact, it’s on my phone.
    I can’t choose between the proverbs. They’re both good!
    As for Zez, what if he’s bluffing? If not, would he just settle for possessing the crown? Would that appease him? Some people just like crowns.

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

      Really? How cool! I love lots of their stuff…

      Especially Zez. I don’t think he’s too concerned about power. Maybe he should be threatened too? I don’t know…maybe that’s not a good idea. It’s a wonder.

  13. 172 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 28, 2014 at 13:39

    Dancing Rider has a valid point and it’s good to understand this before one goes and does what he can’t help doing.
    Shnoddy and I get that laughter is supreme. Why doesn’t anyone else?

    Zez is causing trouble again, but I sleep like a baby because My Magi is close by. I do think Zez will back down once he realizes that Arthur’s crown will be far too big.

    Duke, I think you need to stop with the caffeine. You’re stressing Nick out, I think. I’m a lot like you, in that I cannot sit still long and bore easily. You do a good job of keeping us on our toes. Go ahead…do it. CHANGE IT UP…we can handle it. :)

    No skit means no voices….*leg shakes a little* No skit means no story. *pops a knuckle* ….we’ll be fine. *bites her lip* Don’t worry, okay. *tears in the corner of her eyes* Do what’s best, Duke. *hides*

    It seems Ruber regrets breaking up with his girlfriend, maybe.

    • 173 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:18

      I get it! Don’t I? Maybe just a few bits?

      *laughing* Great point, Audith! But…Zez might want to just hang it up. I’m sure Mr. Magi will see what’s up and fix it–maybe.

      But…I don’t drink much caffeine that I can think of. Unless, it’s hiding in some food somewhere… I know! Didn’t Nick sound depressed? Okay, then. I’ll change it up!

      Oh dear! Does it really affect you that much?

      But did he ever have one?

      • 174 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 29, 2014 at 05:00

        Do yoitget it, Duketh? You probably do…

        Hang it up?..what’s wrong with it?

        I tthink it hides in food. Tis sneaky like you, Duke. Nick does sound depressed. ..why? Fix him! Okay…nervous now!

        No, but it was fun to write that. Maybe I don’t cry. The rest might be true.

        My guess? No.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:15

        I think I do. I hope I do!

        Well, like put it on the wall. He doesn’t have to wear it, you see, since it’s far too big.

        I’m not sneaky! I’m an honest, downright fellow. Don’t be nervous! It will be glorious. Nick…that’s just him, I fear. He’s not that bad in real life. *laughs*

        Aha! You’re pulling my leg!

        Better for him, huh?

      • 176 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 29, 2014 at 17:28

        You do. Always.

        Oh, too big a crown sounds fun to wear, I think.

        I look forward to seeing what is to come, Duketh.

        Sorta, but not really. I didn’t cry.

        Probably *smiles* Do you think so?

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 18:01

        *smiles*

        It might fall down and choke the person who wears it, though!

        Me too, I think.

        Well…well…very good to hear. I promise we’ll have them back soon.

        Yes, I do! I’m unromantic, remember.

      • 178 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 29, 2014 at 18:51

        I don’t think it would choke anyone, Sir.

        Very unromantic, probably.

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:27

        But it might. Crowns are poky too.

        Yes, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about it.

      • 180 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 30, 2014 at 05:12

        Crowns are for royalty, so I don’t think much about it.

        I worry about it enough for everyone, so no worries.

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:47

        Mr. Warrior should have one.

        Really?

      • 182 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 30, 2014 at 20:42

        He should. He can have mine…or one to match Chewys…he’d love one of those bullet belty thingys… *laughs*

        Yes

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:14

        I’d love one of those too! They’re so cool.

        So you know I’m heartless, then.

      • 184 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister July 31, 2014 at 17:32

        Pretty cool. He’s my favorite. Looks so cuddly and I like how he rolls his rrrrrs.

        Yes, but I don’t have to like it.

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:52

        I never heard him role his r’s!

        But we must accept it.

      • 186 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 1, 2014 at 03:15

        Well, he grunts and verberates his r’s. Don’t you hear him?

        You have, it seems. I don’t have to…*turns the music up*

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:01

        No! I’ll have to listen better.

        *and the music says something about the professor losing his heart*

      • 188 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 1, 2014 at 19:54

        I could be wrong…he may just have a throat condition.

        Same ole sad song… *gouges her eyes out*

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:18

        I think that may be the ticket. Better as Mr. Warrior about it.

        *laughs lots*

      • 190 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 2, 2014 at 03:06

        *laughs*

        *wonders why he thinks bloody eyeballs are funny*

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:32

        I’m not sure!

      • 192 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 4, 2014 at 02:06

        *sticks her tongue out*

  14. 193 FictionFan July 28, 2014 at 13:36

    DR’s proverb is brilliantly profound and therefore…wins!! But I must say Shnoddy’s done rather well this week too – did he steal that one from someone with a brain?

    Ooh, no, make Zez cranky! Who doesn’t love fireworks (except T&T)?

    King Zez of England – it has a lovely ring to it! I think it should be encouraged – Art’s a rubbish king (no offence, Art!). Tell that interfering Mr Magi to keep out!

    Nick really needs to eat more chocolate. Sounds like you guys maybe need a summer holiday…

    *laughing* You’ve got to admit, sometimes the Sausage’s logic is irrefutable…

    • 194 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:16

      Maybe the professor’s? I don’t know…I’m heartless, but I do have a brain.

      I don’t like fireworks! And make Zez cranky? That could mean death! (I bet Tommy isn’t really scared…)

      A summer holiday might be nice. Nick did write that…like he was depressed or something! I’ll go and give him a talking to. It’s not nearly as bleak as it seems. Promise!

      I felt bad for Ruber!

      • 195 FictionFan July 28, 2014 at 23:19

        Do you? Though funnily enough, I thought it sounded like something the Professor might say…

        Don’t you?? Why not? Oh, my heroic warrior C-W-W has no need to fear a tiny orange goblin/gremlin – I wish I could remember what he is. I think I’ll just call him a gurglin from now on.

        I’m glad! But he does sound as if he needs cheering up – perhaps you should take him to Ruber’s Cafe. What movie were you watching anyway – or is that classified?

        That’s just because you’re such a sweetie! (See how I restrained myself from adding pumpkin pie there? *proud face*)

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:08

        Well…yes…well… Nick sounds so different from me, doesn’t he?

        *laughing lots and lots* Gurglin it is! In fact, I think that should be official, don’t you? See how creative? Zez is now a Gurglin–if it’s all right with you.

        I’ll take him, but I really think he needs a beating. Well…you’ll laugh me to scorn if I tell you, you know!

        *laughing* Yes…but didn’t you kind of say it anyway?

      • 197 FictionFan July 29, 2014 at 16:36

        Of course you do! *smacks own wrist for being wicked* Sometimes he sounds different…and then sometimes he sounds quite like you. It’s…intriguing.

        *laughing* I would be very honoured! But don’t you think you should check how Zez feels about it first? He might really get cranky…

        Order him the fish! Ah – it must have been Pride & Prejudice then! I suspected as much…

        *laughing guiltily* I s’pose I did. Couldn’t help it.

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 17:57

        It is! He copies my style! Nick is as real as real can be, you know. Don’t doubt him!

        Nah! Let’s just do it. He won’t care. We’ll pluck out his orange hairs if he puts up a stink.

        It should be safe to eat now! No…no, it was Divergent.

        I’m a Thark. John Carter was a pumpkin pie. There’s the difference.

      • 199 FictionFan July 29, 2014 at 21:40

        Oh, I do believe Nick is real! But he certainly gets very close to the Professorish style sometimes.

        OK, that sounds like fun! Can’t we do it even if he doesn’t?

        *laughing* I look forward to the rip…!!!

        Hmm…I’m not sure I can give that my whole-hearted agreement. Can Tharks be c&a? And John Carter might be a pumpkin pie, but the Professor is so like him that that might be extra proof that he is too…

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 23:36

        Isn’t it a wonder? (Just between me and you, I think it rubs off sometimes…)

        *gulp* You delight in making him mad! Can I stand behind you then, Dejah?

        *laughs* Yeah, you laugh! Well…it was a new release and…it’s great fun ripioing it so far. Just taking the old standards and reapplying them.

        But why do you suppose I’m like John Carter? And he definitely wasn’t c&a, was he?

      • 201 FictionFan July 30, 2014 at 16:02

        (Unless it’s that you sound like him… *raises quizzical eyebrow*)

        Oooh! Well, actually, I was sorta planning to stand behind you…

        *laughing* Glad you’re enjoying it!

        The heroism, the good looks, the warriorness… Oh yes he was, when he kept giving that little sideways flirty smile at Dejah. And then when they got married he even wore a nice fluffy cloak thing!

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:56

        I wouldn’t do that! Would I? I don’t think so.

        *laughs* Maybe we should get MM to do it.

        Oh, I bet he didn’t even know the smile he was giving was flirty! I wouldn’t.

      • 203 FictionFan July 30, 2014 at 22:38

        I don’t think so either.

        Good plan!

        That’s exactly what makes it so c&a!

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:17

        Ladies are strange creatures! Never upright and honest.

      • 205 FictionFan July 31, 2014 at 16:24

        *gasps* How dare you, sir! Just for that, I shan’t dance with you!

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:30

        Oh okay. All’s good. Is that the end of the matter? I mean, you can’t hold a grudge now, ’cause you’ve taken away the dance and all.

      • 207 FictionFan August 1, 2014 at 13:44

        Fortunately I’m feeling terribly forgiving today – so fear not! You’ll be allowed to dance with me after all.

        Twice.

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 16:08

        Fair enough, I suppose. I’m game.

      • 209 FictionFan August 1, 2014 at 18:19

        Oh, no!! Have you bumped your head again?!?

      • 210 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:10

        No…it’d just make you incredibly happy.

      • 211 FictionFan August 2, 2014 at 19:40

        Awwwwww! *awwwwww!* Awwwwww! *glows speechlessly and practices a few steps*

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke August 3, 2014 at 22:39

        *maybe blushes*

      • 213 FictionFan August 4, 2014 at 14:47

        *whispers* Awwwwww!

      • 214 Professor VJ Duke August 4, 2014 at 15:26

        *shakes FEF’s hand*

    Great proverbs, I know for a fact that number one can often be very true.

    Zez certainly seems to be all fired up at the moment. Do you think it is the power he craves or does he just want a crown? Because if it’s just a crown, maybe someone should get one for him. I mean, everyone wants a crown tow ear, don’t they?

    Glad to hear the ‘movie thingy’ is moving forward. All the greatest plans have set backs so tell Nick not to worry. I shall miss the skit on Thursday, but to consol myself I will go and watch the old ones instead – genius!

    • 216 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:14

      Aha! Interesting… That’s the kind of statement that makes me dadblame curious!

      I think you could be right. I don’t think Zez wants power, since he sorta has the most ever in the PL. Maybe you’re right: maybe he just wants a crown. I suppose I should take one to him?

      *laughs* Many thanks, Lucy, you’re encouragement is priceless! For sure. I’ll keep pushing mister Nick along.

      • 217 PorterGirl July 28, 2014 at 18:23

        Curiosity is a marvelous thing in a Professor!

        Get him a crown. I bet that would take his mind of things. It would mine.

        Best regards to Mr Nick!

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:01

        It is! It makes us jumpy. *laughs*

        Okay, then. I’ll get you one, too.

      • 219 PorterGirl July 29, 2014 at 13:03

        Brilliant. I really need a crown to add to my headwear collection. Thanks, Professor

      • 220 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:16

        *laughs* Me too. With a few rubies on it.

      • 221 PorterGirl July 29, 2014 at 14:11

        We should get matching ones

      • 222 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 17:52

        We should!

  16. 223 Simply Skeptical July 28, 2014 at 13:08

    DR’s proverb rings with much accuracy. The 2nd proverb has a happy ending. (Yeah!)
    What’s up with the movie thingy eh? The Professor’s wheels are always spinning with light speed and oozing with creativity.
    It sure is a good thing Ruber (cur brain) doesnt’ run the show. :-)

    • 224 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:12

      *laughs* Oh yeah, DR’s is tops for sure.

      Poor Ruber! Well…the studio is having battles! Did you know that?

      • 225 Simply Skeptical July 28, 2014 at 18:42

        Could it have anything to do with Nick’s attitude? Perhaps you should provide more chocolate for incentive.

      • 226 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:01

        Oh, chocolate would get him fat, wouldn’t it?

  17. 227 Julie Harris July 28, 2014 at 13:02

    Love proverb #2… laughter is always the way to win!!

    • 228 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:12

      It is! Unless you’re dealing with wicked professors!

  18. 229 Susan P July 28, 2014 at 12:29

    I love DS’s logic. We had a cat (it was actually my daughter’s cat but she the cat was magnanimous about sharing her wisdom). Her name was Baby Doll, but don’t let the name fool you. She ruled with an iron paw. Her most famous proverb was, “It’s only rude if it isn’t true.” I think that DS has accessed her teaching DVDs.

    • 230 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:11

      *laughs* She made vids?! I’m jealous. Interesting… Did she state her proverb every day? I think I may steal it.

      • 231 Susan P July 29, 2014 at 01:28

        Steal away. She saved up her wisdom for when necessary and parceled it out then. :)

      • 232 Professor VJ Duke July 29, 2014 at 13:10

        Sorta of like the professor.

      • 233 Susan P July 30, 2014 at 00:33

        Yes! How did you know?

      • 234 Professor VJ Duke July 30, 2014 at 16:42

        But I don’t have claws, you know.

      • 235 Susan P July 30, 2014 at 17:41

        Baby Doll didn’t have claws either so don’t let that hold you back. She arrived to us declawed – I wouldn’t declaw a cat myself.

      • 236 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 13:02

        Really? Bob was declawed too. Well…I want my claws, though!

      • 237 Susan P July 31, 2014 at 17:09

        And you could have Billesue give you a manicure.

      • 238 Professor VJ Duke July 31, 2014 at 23:37

        Wouldn’t that be girly?

      • 239 Susan P August 1, 2014 at 19:31

        This is Billisue.

      • 240 Professor VJ Duke August 1, 2014 at 22:15

        *growls*

      • 241 Susan P August 16, 2014 at 18:53

        Down boy. No growling.

      • 242 Professor VJ Duke August 16, 2014 at 18:55

        Looked pretty vicious, huh?

      • 243 Susan P August 16, 2014 at 19:01

        Well nigh annihilated the barn, dadblameit.

      • 244 Professor VJ Duke August 18, 2014 at 11:42

        *smiles proudly*

      • 245 Susan P August 18, 2014 at 23:27

        Where else would you like to live?

      • 246 Professor VJ Duke August 19, 2014 at 01:29

        I’d really, really, really like to visit Portugal, I think. And Scotland!

      • 247 Susan P August 20, 2014 at 00:42

        Low road or the high road?

      • 248 Professor VJ Duke August 20, 2014 at 13:24

        Ooo! What’s that mean?

      • 249 Susan P August 20, 2014 at 13:54

        You will need to talk to George about that.

      • 250 Professor VJ Duke August 20, 2014 at 19:40

        George hates the professor.

      • 251 Susan P August 20, 2014 at 21:20

        He is not. Why do you defame him so?

      • 252 Professor VJ Duke August 21, 2014 at 00:48

        I don’t know! It’s just a feeling I got suddenly! Like…like a guitar in the night.

      • 253 Susan P August 21, 2014 at 15:56

        Okay……… *shrug*

      • 254 Professor VJ Duke August 22, 2014 at 13:24

        *laughs*

      • 255 Susan P August 22, 2014 at 14:05

        You’re mocking me, aren’t you? ;)

      • 256 Professor VJ Duke August 23, 2014 at 16:29

        No! Why would I do that?

      • 257 Susan P August 23, 2014 at 18:01

        How should I know why you would do that. *sniffle*

      • 258 Professor VJ Duke August 24, 2014 at 17:45

        Well, rats! Promise I’m not!

      • 259 Susan P August 24, 2014 at 19:43

        Goats.

  19. 260 walt walker July 28, 2014 at 12:04

    Oh dear. It will be tough to do the movie thingy, then.

    • 261 Professor VJ Duke July 28, 2014 at 17:11

      And why is that, Walt?
