Juice is Better Than Milk

“Juice is better than milk.”

Mr. Ratherquite just said it. Just floated it out there. And while it was still floating, Schwarz Tauptinker caught it.

We were at a late night party. And we were outside.

People were everywhere.

Schwarz, Mr. Ratherquite, and this professor were standing off alone, by a table that was very tall, and had an ugly candle on it.

This professor was pleased that the candle didn’t stink, like most candles do.

“Yes, sir,” Mr. Ratherquite said again, “juice is better than milk. It tastes better, it has more vitamins, and it’s better for you.”

Schwarz shook his head. “Nah. Don’t believe you–tell you what!”

“Sir! And why not?” Mr. Ratherquite seemed surprised that Schwarz disagreed.

“Well, because,” Schwarz answered, “milk is whiter; therefore, it’s got more vitamins.”

(Thinking about it now, PF, I’m sure we could draw some sort of parallel between Schwarz’s comment and the professor’s suit. Don’t you think so?)

“That’s silly,” Mr. Ratherquite said.

Then, Daddy Salami walked up.

“What ya doin’, boys?” he asked, laughing a bit, bits, and little bits.

“We,” Mr. Ratherquite said, “are trying to decide if juice is better than milk.”

“Yes,” this professor cut in, “Schwarz thinks milk is better; Mr. Ratherquite thinks juice is better.”

“Well, P.VJ,” Salami said, looking at me, “they’re both wrong. Water’s the best. Heha…”

“Silliness!” Mr. Ratherquite said.

Salami’s mouth hung open instantly. “Only snakes don’t drink water!” And he stared resolutely at Mr. Ratherquite, who started to huff-hum.

“That’s not true, chickit!” Schwarz said. “Snakes drink water. Have you ever seen their little tongue that comes out of nowhere? Oh yeah!”

Salami was frowning. “This conversation is weird. I’m leaving.”

And Daddy Salami departed–to the pool, I think. (Some swim at night. It helps with a moon tan, I hear.)

“Yes, sir,” Mr. Ratherquite said again, “juice is far better than milk.”

“No, it’s not!” Schwarz said in a high-pitched voice.

And what he did next was a shocking shocker.

He reached out and slapped Mr. Ratherquite across the face. Goodness, it was an interest.

Mr. Ratherquite’s eyes got real big. Then he took off his glove, and slapped Schwarz across the face.

A duel was on, then.

They were scheduling a date, but I didn’t listen.

The professor was leaving.

I was going to have some juice.

    Oh dear… That sounds quite serious. I bet Schwarz won. :-P
    And I think I agree with Schwarz. Milk is the best. Though I do like tea, which is made with water… but I normally end up drinking water. It’s confusing, isn’t it?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke September 6, 2014 at 15:57

      It is, Erin! (Hi!!!) But…you see, milk is probably only good when it’s…cherry! Do you like cherry milk?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 September 6, 2014 at 16:00

        It’s been a long time, I know. The first week of college intervened. IT WANTS MY SOUL. I swear.
        But fortunately, I did escape It was a tale, tales and half a tale again! I shall do my best to tell it, as soon as possible. ;-D
        Mmm… it does sound delicious. But wouldn’t the acid in the cherries curdle the milk? (Have you ever had strawberry milk, Professor? It’s quite unexpected.)

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke September 6, 2014 at 16:05

        That’s fine! Is everything working out better? Guard your soul, Erin!

        *laughs* Love how you put that! Perfect. I’d love to hear. It might…I don’t know. Maybe they…that is a good point. *goes off thinking and scratching his professorish head* I have! I love that stuff. Do you like it?

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 September 6, 2014 at 16:25

        A little better, now. Fortunately, I am beginning to catch up on my work. :-) And I will, quite carefully. ;-)
        Why, thank you :-D And I will have to get to work on it, then. ;-) It will be easier than simply telling everyone one at a time. :-P
        I only had it once, and it was room temperature, but I do like it. It would have been even better if it was cold.
        The best thing, though, is vanilla ice cream with sliced fresh cherries on top…. mmmm….

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 00:55

        Oh, that is the best for sure!

        (Just keep your weapons close.)

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 September 8, 2014 at 01:45

        We make homemade ice cream when we actually have a working ice cream maker. I love ice cream, especially homemade. (We recently tried making our own ice cream sandwiches with cookies, but the cookies got over-baked, so we ended up crumbling them over the ice cream instead. Which was delicious too.)
        I always keep my weapons close, Professor. Morgarath and Morgoth tried to assassinate me last week. But I have a way of surviving. ;-)

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 13:15

        Yes, I make it homemade from time to time! It’s the best. Tops, as they would say.

        Goodness!!! Does Obi-Wan know that you were almost assassinated?

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 September 8, 2014 at 22:01

        It is indeed. Mmmmm… chocolate… butter pecan… mint chip… vanilla. Good stuff.
        He does. As punishment, he sent Morgoth back into the void, and Morgarath went with him. It’s all good because no one really needs Morgarath desperately any more, since SPOILER he died back in book two END SPOILER. :-P

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:46

        I love spoilers. Don’t you?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 September 9, 2014 at 21:54

        Spoilerz are more fun to give than to be given. (Hey, we should do a Ripping Review of Frozen! :-D It would be controversial! :-D ) I had Frozen completely spoiled for me, so by the time I watched it, nothing was a surprise any more, which makes for a not-much-fun movie-watching experience. :-( It was sad. I think that if I ever turn to the Dark Side, it would have been because of Frozen and all the spoilers I got….

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:25

        That is a neatio idea! You think a ripping movie review should be done? That’s a great idea. Dark Side! So there’s hope for you! If I ruin more movies…maybe you’ll turn then?

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 September 10, 2014 at 20:49

        Indeed! Because there were problems with Frozen as well as pros. :-P
        I doubt it. It’s impossible to ruin movies for me if you don’t know which ones I’m most anxious to see. :-P
        But anyway, I’ll never be the one who goes to the movie theater first, so…

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:32

        Well, what movie are you looking forward to seeing?

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 September 11, 2014 at 12:05

        Ah, but how do I know you won’t spoil it for me? :-P
        (Seriously, please don’t. I’m really looking forward to it, and if I turned to the Dark Side I might start trolling all the people who hadn’t seen the movie with spoilers, which would not be a very fun circumstance…)

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:51

        *laughing* Oh, okay! It’s much more fun than you think it is, being on the Dark Side. Rosalie would tell you–if she was honest! *laughs*

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 September 12, 2014 at 13:29

        Hm. I am an internet entity of unknown snark and beneficence. It stands to reason that I will be unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean I am not a Jedi. :-P
        Am going to start working on my Jedi costume this weekend. Yay! :-D Maybe I’ll go on and make a Jack Frost costume as well. IDK yet.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 18:47

        Now Jack Frost is an interest. I should see that movie.

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 September 12, 2014 at 20:59

        X-D YAY!
        I LOVE RISE OF THE GUARDIANS!!!!!! JACK FROST IS AWESOME!
        As is caps lock. :-P

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:18

        I NEVER USE CAPS LOCK! I SHOULD! I’ll have to see it.

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 September 15, 2014 at 00:18

        :-P Indeed.
        :-D Yay! (I’m working on my Jedi costume… ^_^ The embroidery on the tabards is taking forever, though. *sigh* at least they will be less floppy when I’m done with it, because I forgot the interfacing…

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:41

        Is it for Halloween?

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 September 15, 2014 at 23:52

        Nah, for fun. :-P I would like to try cosplaying, really.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:20

        Yeah! That would be neatio. Will you post a pic of it when you’re finished?

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:12

        I can try. :-) I don’t know. I’ll do my best. Life has been hectic at best and I’ve been neglecting my blogging.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:25

        That’s okay. You’ll get to it. You’re really busy now!

      • 27 erinkenobi2893 September 17, 2014 at 21:37

        Yeah…. I’m actually supposed to be researching and writing a paper at the moment, but my brain is not working in Mesopotamia so I’m taking a break :-P

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:35

        *laughs* I hate researching sometimes.

      • 29 erinkenobi2893 September 18, 2014 at 15:19

        It can be fun, but most of the time it’s rather annoying, isn’t it?

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:23

        It can be, you’re right. Like…when one is researching Troy! I have to change that story in the PL.

      • 31 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 12:21

        Yes, it needs to be changed…

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke September 19, 2014 at 18:02

        I think I’ll write the alternate ending!

      • 33 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 20:08

        ^_^ Exciting!!! :-D

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:22

        *smiles bigly*

      • 35 erinkenobi2893 September 18, 2014 at 15:20

        I know. It can be fun, though. :-)

  2. 36 Hazy September 1, 2014 at 13:11

    I like juice! And water. Some juice have water too, right? So maybe that makes it a win-win. I don’t like the taste of milk. Unless it was chocolate milk. Or soymilk. But soymilk is made of soy, not milk, is it? So it prolly shouldn’t be called soymilk… maybe soyjuice? Sounds funny though.

    I was surprised schwarz would snap at Mr. R like that. I feel a bit sorry for Mr. R.

    • 37 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:10

      That’s a very good point. There has to be water in juice. I’m with you Hazy: I love juice and water. Milk is scary–unless it’s chocolate. Soymilk…now I’ll have to try that.

      Yes! What a wonder. Mr. R…I do feel bad for the chap.

      • 38 Hazy September 14, 2014 at 08:38

        Soymilk is pretty good! I like it, but some people don’t. An acquired taste, I suppose. There’s also almond milk and hazelnut milk… even hemp milk!

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:17

        Hemp milk sounds scary!

      • 40 Hazy September 17, 2014 at 12:27

        I know, right? I initially thought of hemp rope! “How can a rope have milk?!” I wondered hazily. Apparently, it’s from hemp seeds! *laughs lots*

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:32

        *laughing too* I would have been confused, I say!

  3. 42 Bethy August 27, 2014 at 10:05

    What kind of milk? What kind of juice? It really depends, you know? I bet it was cherry juice and that’s why the PVJ was in favor of juice!

    • 43 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 14:01

      *laughs* Very true! That’s why I was in favor. Say…apple juice and soy milk?

      • 44 Bethy September 1, 2014 at 17:16

        erm. I think orange juice and coconut milk. Those are the bestest of the bestest best. I think.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 00:58

        Dadblameit! Well…coconut milk is sour!

      • 46 Bethy September 3, 2014 at 00:00

        Erm. Who says? And what kind of coconut milk? I mean they aren’t all created equal.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 01:06

        There’s different kinds? I’m sure Susan told me that.

      • 48 Bethy September 4, 2014 at 00:21

        Canned is da bomb because you can make whipped cream out of it! I have also made chowder and potato soup that you couldn’t tell that it wasn’t made with regular dairy milk!

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 12:26

        I love potato soup!

      • 50 Bethy September 4, 2014 at 12:58

        Me too! Maybe someday it will be cold enough for soup again.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 19:50

        *nods* Too hot here today. But the leaves are falling!

      • 52 Bethy September 8, 2014 at 12:21

        The Princess brought me some leaves last night too!

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 13:19

        Put them in a book!

      • 54 Bethy September 9, 2014 at 19:24

        I’ll see if I can find them again. It’s been a wild couple of days.

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:16

        September is full of them!

      • 56 Bethy September 11, 2014 at 13:51

        Full of falling leaves or full of wild days? If its wild days I’ve had enough thank you very much. I will just come back when its October.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 16:02

        Both! Yes, I know what you mean. But then, there’s halloween.

      • 58 Bethy September 12, 2014 at 16:12

        I am not a huge fan of halloween, but the Princess thinks its great stuff. I mean I can see the attraction for her…when else can you go up to people and ask them for candy. She already knows what she wants to be too.

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 19:00

        I used to love it for the same reasons! What’s she want to be?

      • 60 Bethy September 12, 2014 at 19:04

        Wait for it…

        A tree! She seriously needs no help being creative. She decided right after we got home from trick or treating last year.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 19:07

        *laughing* Wow! Well, that’s cool…but I imagine that’s a hard costume to get–or make!

      • 62 Bethy September 14, 2014 at 21:17

        Um…Yeah. Well I didn’t have any great ideas for a ghost last year either. I mean I didn’t really want to buy anything you know? So I left it up to her dad since I was the one going to be walking her around the neighborhood. I think he’s going to make her into a tree too. Pretty soon she’s going to have to come up with the ideas of how to dress herself in these unique costume ideas!

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:40

        *laughs* You know, I wouldn’t even know where to start!

      • 64 Bethy September 16, 2014 at 15:04

        Well I am not a face painting artist, but my impractical idea (since I have no skills in the area) would be to paint leaves on her face and try to coordinate the colors she would be wearing with tree colors. However, her father is much more creative then I be so I’ll let him do it. :)

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:11

        That’s a great idea! But imagine painting on the face. That’d be hard indeed.

      • 66 Bethy September 22, 2014 at 14:57

        Me thinks the hard part is the sitting still.

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke September 22, 2014 at 19:54

        Yeah, it might tickle.

      • 68 Bethy September 24, 2014 at 13:07

        Is THAT why people don’t sit still??! I never realized.

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke September 28, 2014 at 19:31

        *nods* I bet so!

      • 70 Bethy September 29, 2014 at 10:18

        Another mystery solved!

      • 71 Professor VJ Duke September 29, 2014 at 14:49

        And we’re glad it is.

      • 72 Bethy October 2, 2014 at 20:45

        I’m very happy about it! Notice my exclamation points!!

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:38

        *laughing!*

      • 74 Bethy October 6, 2014 at 15:41

        I didn’t know you could laugh with exclamation points.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:48

        You sure can!

  4. 76 Jackie (Lostinthot) August 26, 2014 at 09:28

    Milk is gross unless it’s almond or soy milk! I love juice.

    • 77 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:53

      *high five* Exactly! I hear that almond milk is good. What sort of juice do you prefer?

  5. 78 Sonya Solomonovich August 26, 2014 at 05:10

    A moon tan! I’ve always wondered if it’s possible.

    • 79 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:51

      Me too! What do you suppose one would look like?

      • 80 Sonya Solomonovich August 28, 2014 at 01:55

        I always thought it would be just like a normal tan. After all, it’s just reflected sunlight.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 13:41

        *nods* Very smart of you, Sonya. You’re right, I think. I’d like to think, though, it’d be a bit different.

      • 82 Sonya Solomonovich August 29, 2014 at 03:38

        As in, more silver and glowing?

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 12:58

        Yes! Exactly. Something maybe a dryad would do?

  6. 84 Julie Harris August 26, 2014 at 01:33

    I agree with Mr Ratherquite. I’d choose juice over milk any day! Except coconut milk. That’s even better than juice!

    • 85 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:51

      Coconut milk! Is it sweet? I’ve heard dastardly things about it, you know. Maybe even scary things!

  7. 86 Lady Cheetah August 25, 2014 at 23:28

    An ugly table, moon tan, and an upcoming slap match all in one story. WoW! I think this deserves a follow up.

    • 87 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:49

      It will! All week, I think. Is a moon tan possible, Lady? I’ve been debating on it.

      • 88 Lady Cheetah August 26, 2014 at 13:33

        In the PL anything is possible.

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:20

        Anything is possible for the professor, I hear. Have you heard that?

      • 90 Lady Cheetah August 26, 2014 at 22:55

        Yes but I am a bit skeptical more about the “anything” than the “possible.”

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:47

        Oh, you’re too smart! *laughs* What isn’t possible for a professor/ninja?

      • 92 Lady Cheetah August 27, 2014 at 17:54

        Un the PL anything goes….

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 19:44

        And for the professor, you mean.

  8. 94 icedmocha34 August 25, 2014 at 21:44

    PFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTTT, whatever! Milk is life!

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:43

      It is? But why?

      • 96 icedmocha34 August 26, 2014 at 23:57

        Iced tea and milk. *nods emphatically* Life.

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:47

        What about iced water?

      • 98 icedmocha34 August 28, 2014 at 16:50

        Iced water is okay, but where I live, tea is literally everywhere. Everyone drinks it, all the time, everyday. It’s scary.

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 17:07

        That sounds scary! How about bug juice?

      • 100 icedmocha34 August 28, 2014 at 17:08

        Wha…? Bug juice?

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 17:08

        You’ve never heard of it? It used to be good. I think it was like fruit juice. Just with an attractive name.

      • 102 icedmocha34 August 28, 2014 at 17:10

        Hmm. Sounds…interesting. Right now everyone is obsessed with coconut water. And coconut lemonade.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 23:18

        Coconut water? Is it good?

      • 104 icedmocha34 August 29, 2014 at 19:34

        Eh, I don’t like it, but it’s popular among the fitness freaks here.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:40

        Well, I think I’d taste it.

      • 106 icedmocha34 August 29, 2014 at 20:46

        Ha, well you have fun with that then…*shivers*

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke August 30, 2014 at 18:05

        Goodness me. Must be horrid!

      • 108 icedmocha34 August 31, 2014 at 21:26

        Yup. :D

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 13:55

        *shudders too*

  9. 110 Jadie August 25, 2014 at 20:00

    hahahahhahahahahahhaha oh no this is just too much for me to handle lol !!! x

      *nods* I do see what you mean. Milk or juice…it’s a wonder. What do you suppose you’d choose?

      • 112 Jadie August 25, 2014 at 21:56

        juice!! unless the milk is chocolate flavoured? lol

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:45

        Agreed! *fist pump* But…what if the milk is cherry flavored?

      • 114 Jadie August 26, 2014 at 21:28

        i shall have the cherry flava milk!! I luuuurrrv milk! whahahahaha

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:30

        Haha! Great. And bring me a bottle, please. With some noodles.

      • 116 Jadie August 27, 2014 at 10:28

        2 minute noodles, I have cheese chicken and beef flavour which do you prefer? Lol

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 14:02

        *laughing lots* Umm…chicken! How about you?

      • 118 Jadie August 27, 2014 at 16:14

        I normally prefer beef flavor, but I want cheese noodles NOW!!!! lololol

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 19:38

        Well, beef everything is good. Did you know there was a Prince Beef in the PL?

      • 120 Jadie August 27, 2014 at 19:43

        what’s PL ??? lol…

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 19:45

        The Punchy Lands! Does that help?

  10. 122 Debbie August 25, 2014 at 18:05

    Personally, I tend to agree with Mr. Ratherquite — juice is better than milk. Of course, I can’t drink milk, so maybe I’m just rationalizing!

    Anyway, the professor is quite wise to get out of the area if these two are going to take a simple disagreement to duel-status. As far as whether snakes really drink water, I had to Google it, and they DO (http://www.wildlifesos.org/rescue/reptiles/snake-facts-myths). Learn something new every day, if we try!

    • 123 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:40

      But I agree, too. Milk is dadblamery. So…do you have cereal, then? You see, the only thing I use milk for is cereal and eggs, sometimes.

      Thanks for sharing that! What a wonder indeed. It’s…interesting! But…snakes should drink milk.

      • 124 Debbie August 25, 2014 at 20:55

        That sounds like me — milk is only good in cereal, but I might as well use a slotted spoon because I definitely DON’T drink the stuff!

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:35

        *laughs* Yes, me neither…but what about hot cocoa?

  11. 126 PorterGirl August 25, 2014 at 16:21

    So many excellent things today! Firstly – a late night party. Always good. And then – Mr R, Schwarz and DS! (And, of course, the Professor). Now, where were the Ladies? Maybe a late night party was a bit rude and crude for them. A moon tan – I like that very much. Far better than a sun tan. And now – a duel! Very exciting indeed.

    But what is better – juice or milk? I’m with juice all the way. I think milk is a bit suspect (have you seen where it comes from?!)

    By the way Professor – I am away this week, so I will catch up with you properly upon my return.

    • 127 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:38

      Late night parties can be scary! Everyone milling about. Like a Gatsby party, you know. That’s a good question. I suppose the ladies were either elsewhere in the party. Or at their homes. It’s truly a wonder, you know. A moon tan…how do you suppose one would work? I’m not even sure.

      *laughing lots* I have! That’s why I agree: Milk is suspect. We should stick to juice (or wine).

      Oh, that’s fine! Don’t worry about it. You’ll be missed, of course, but have a great time doing whatever you’re up to! (Hopefully something wicked!)

      • 128 PorterGirl August 29, 2014 at 14:06

        I imagine a moon tan would leave one quite pale and interesting. Or maybe sparkly, like stars. Hmm. It is quite the conundrum.

        Yes – let’s stick to juice and maybe wine. Alright, definitely wine!

        I have now returned from my wicked adventures, I do hope I haven’t missed too much…

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:35

        Sparkly! That would be awesome. I would do it for that. Well, maybe not. Only girls wear sparkles.

        *laughs* I knew you’d like that!

        Not at all. How were you adventures?

      • 130 PorterGirl August 30, 2014 at 08:08

        Some chaps wear sparkles. Some even look rather marvelous while doing it. But it probably is more of a girl thing.

        The adventures were wicked and charming all at once. There was some fabulous food involved, too. Now to return to my every day adventures with gusto!

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke August 30, 2014 at 18:11

        Really? But they don’t put them on their eyes, I bet.

        Fabulous food sounds awesome!

      • 132 PorterGirl August 31, 2014 at 10:47

        A chap with sparkles on his eyes would be a little odd. But I am not one to judge, each to his own, I guess. Sparkles on a hat would be pretty good, though!

        Mmm food. Today i am making home made burgers – fantastic!

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke August 31, 2014 at 19:01

        Good point! Imagine…red sparkles on the professorish hat! Something very cool about that, you know.

        *mouth hangs open* Sounds awesome!

      • 134 PorterGirl September 1, 2014 at 08:28

        Oooh red sparkles – yes! They would suit the professorish hat perfectly.

        The burger was amazing. And huge.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 13:57

        *laughs* It would be one of the wonders of the world.

        Sounds like the best. Burgers need to be big.

  12. 136 desertdweller29 August 25, 2014 at 16:16

    I’ve missed the PL! I’d say there’s something in this juice Mr. Ratherquite is fond of. I’m particular to Napa grape juice myself. Plenty of vitamins and they can color even the most distasteful personalities. Cheers!

    • 137 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:36

      And I missed you, too! Actually, was just having thinks about you. Glad to have you back!

      *laughs* Great way to put that. Napa grape juice…I’ve never had it! Do you suppose I should give it a go?

      • 138 desertdweller29 August 26, 2014 at 16:00

        Me thinks you should, Professor! Here’s how you can tell the difference: regular grape juice gives you a purple mustache (all the rage these days, eh?) and Napa grape juice stains your teeth. These are the decisions that must be weighed before embarking. I say, teeth are easier to brush!

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:26

        Very good point! One can’t brush his mustache. Well, I guess you could, but I’ve never tried. They’re horrible dadblameries, wouldn’t you say?

  13. 140 InfiniteZip August 25, 2014 at 15:34

    Definitely water…..no snakes in it please:)

    • 141 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:35

      *laughs* Do you suppose unicorns drink water or cherry juice, Zippy?

      • 142 InfiniteZip August 26, 2014 at 09:08

        Magic elixirs of unidentified varieties:)

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:52

        Ooo! What’s an elixir?

      • 144 InfiniteZip August 26, 2014 at 19:24

        Check the professor magic dictionary:) it’s very good:)

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:29

        And can you believe it, Zippy, I have not a copy! Where can I get one?

      • 146 InfiniteZip August 27, 2014 at 09:35

        cure-all: a panacea or a quick or magical cure
        sweetened drug: a sweetened solution of a drug in alcohol and water
        miraculous substance: a substance once believed to prolong life indefinitely, or to transform base metals into gold…
        Is the meaning of elixir…but do,you think gold would trump juice and water and milk?
        My copy was given to me by a kind witch:)

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 14:01

        A kind witch! Well…what’s her name? I should meet her. And thank you for it. I do suppose water would be gold…don’t you think?

  14. 148 Simply Skeptical August 25, 2014 at 14:37

    Schwarz is rather rude in this segment.

    Mr. Ratherquite is always the perfect gentleman. Apparently he (Schwarz) takes his milk quite seriously. Just think if they had a disagreement over something significant (but I guess that’s all relative). Nevertheless, I shutter to think of the consequences.

    Salami behaved logically for a change; hee, hee….

    • 149 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:31

      Isn’t Mr. R king rude, though?

      *shocked face* Mr. R? Oh…you do have a point I suppose. Would you dance with Mr. R?

  15. 150 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 25, 2014 at 14:32

    Since Dr. Pepper has already been told he, in no way, is allowed to win because he is unhealthy, then water wins. Juice and milk, are fine once in a while, I think. Juice with other things added and milk with cake and ice cream. Neither by themselves, probably.

    I feel horrible for Mr. R. I hope he gets Schwarz. One shouldn’t hit the elderly.

    • 151 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:30

      Juice with things added… *laughing lots and lots and lots* Dr. Pepper…how do you suppose a doctor could be unhealthy, Audith?

      You think Mr. R elderly? That’s why I can’t be hit, you know.

      • 152 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 25, 2014 at 21:25

        Yes, of course!! *laughing with you* You know how I am… Well, all the doctors say he’s horrid for us to enjoy. Terrible chemicals and such… sad, really, really sad. I miss Dr. Pepper.

        I do think he’s a bit older. I believe that bexause all the woman swoon over him. That’s a tell tell that he knows what he’s doing, you know. *shines and sparkles* You’re not old…I know this now.

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:41

        I do know how you are! Well, I’m sure a little Dr. Pepper wouldn’t be a bad thing–overall! Just do it to spite the doctors.

        Do you suppose he runs a harem? I don’t think so. But there has been rumor. You think you know that now. But you can’t be sure, can you?

      • 154 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 26, 2014 at 14:01

        A little, but a little is hard to manage, Duke. Doctors don’t like it when we fight back.

        Harem?? I hadn’t considered it. He could actually…but a redhead should be smarter than that. No, I can’t be sure of it. In fact I have a feeling you’re tricking me again.

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:22

        That’s why we must!

        You know, I don’t believe he does. Not in anyway. I think he’s too respectable for that. Don’t you?

      • 156 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 27, 2014 at 00:03

        You are wicked… *laughs* I am a rule follower, Duke. Could end badly.

        I think so, too. Mr. R may treat them a little rudely, but he’s also protective. You may have one, though… *laughs*

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:49

        I’m a rule breaker. A rebellious old man!

        Me??? What do you mean?!

      • 158 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 27, 2014 at 19:57

        Onr day you will be, for sure.

        A harem..I think you may have one. *smiles*

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 13:23

        I am now!

        What’s a harem?

      • 160 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 28, 2014 at 20:46

        You are a old young man, probably, huh?

        Don’t start with me.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 23:27

        No, just old, I fear.

        Start what?

      • 162 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 29, 2014 at 04:27

        Not as old as I am.

        Your wicked trickery.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 12:59

        *laughs*

        I only do that every so often.

      • 164 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 29, 2014 at 13:31

        (shouldn’t laugh at old ladies)

        Or all the time.

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:25

        I was laughing cause you think I’m young. *smiles bigly*

        Well… *kicks the dirt* Maybe…

      • 166 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 29, 2014 at 22:21

        You don’t trust me. I am failing. No one has ever been so distrustful of me…ever. *hangs her head*

        You tricking me into thinking you’re young is wicked…

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke August 30, 2014 at 18:07

        But why don’t I trust you?

        It is, isn’t it?

      • 168 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 31, 2014 at 05:21

        Forget it.

        Yes.

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke August 31, 2014 at 18:58

        No, you must tell me, madam.

      • 170 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister August 31, 2014 at 19:49

        I don’t know how to answer a question I haven’t the answer to, Duketh.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 13:54

        *nods* That would be a problem, I know.

      • 172 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 1, 2014 at 17:43

        *shakes her head in agreement* *shuts the window*

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 01:01

        *opens it and comes in* We must think on it.

      • 174 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 2, 2014 at 02:48

        *giggle* Why were we talking through an open window? Haha…I love that!! *puts Charlie in his globe* Thinking on it will only make us say something we’ll regret.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 12:10

        *laughs* It is a wonder, admittedly. He has a globe?

      • 176 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 2, 2014 at 13:47

        It was awesome, actually. Yeah… Yes, it is glass and he can play in it safely. *sparkles sweetly*

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 19:23

        Without fearing for birds.

      • 178 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 2, 2014 at 22:05

        Yes, and this way he doesn’t get lost again when you’re tending to him. *serious eyes*

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 00:57

        I”ve tried to kill him at times.

      • 180 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 3, 2014 at 01:36

        I don’t understand why, but yes, you have.

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 12:31

        He’s a hog!

      • 182 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 3, 2014 at 19:42

        Okay…he snorts, I bet!

  16. 183 L. Marie August 25, 2014 at 14:02

    Ooo. I’m anxious to see who will win this duel.
    As for juice/water/milk I would say Pepsi wins!

    • 184 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:28

      I love Pepsi, Linda! And I don’t know why. Must be the bubbles. Have you ever noticed the little bubbles?

      The duel…I’ll make sure it happens.

      • 185 L. Marie August 26, 2014 at 13:18

        Good. I love a duel.

      • 186 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:18

        *nods* Yeah!

  17. 187 Alastair Savage August 25, 2014 at 14:00

    I’m squarely in the juice camp here. I discovered recently that Kool-Aid tastes just like cranberry juice, so in fact, people could just buy cranberry juice. Unless of course, Kool-Aid doesn’t exist any more.

    • 188 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:28

      Interesting! Is Kool-Aid cheaper, would you say? I’m not sure, I must admit. Oh rats and a heifer…do you like cherry juice?

      • 189 Alastair Savage August 26, 2014 at 06:50

        Kool-Aid must be more expensive than cranberry juice but I remember it from the 1980s when it probably cost pennies. Cherry juice would be enough to push me over the edge into the milk camp, turncoat that I am.

      • 190 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:52

        *laughs* Alastair! You can’t go to the milk camp! The juicers needs all the soldiers possible. Cherry juice is nothing like prune juice. You see, I’m a firm believe that prune juice is actually a spy sent from the milk camp to ruin things. Do you suppose so?

  18. 191 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 13:49

    AHHHH-that crazy man is on the Monday.
    Why does it have to be either or? I mean, really? If you mix grape juice with milk, add 7-up it makes a purple cow. But I seldom drink soda.

    I never got moon tan when I skinny dipped. I feel cheated.

    And mostly, I drink water.

    • 192 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:25

      A purple cow…goodness. Never heard of that wonder. Does it taste tasty?

      *laughs* You know, Susan, I actually thought about that when I wrote that?? *laughs more* But are you sure you didn’t?

      Not beer?

      • 193 Susan P August 25, 2014 at 20:55

        I figured you did. My one claim to fame. Actually, I jumped off a 3 meter diving board once.

        It tastes good if you like grape juice in milk with 7-Up.

        Only if it is gluten free. I do like me some cinnamon hard cider.

      • 194 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:34

        You have more! 3 meter? I’ve never jumped…

        Now how would I know? Such an odd concoction!

        Hard cider sounds really tasty.

      • 195 Susan P August 26, 2014 at 18:30

        Hard cider rocks.

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:26

        I must try some then. And listen to some rock.

      • 197 Susan P August 27, 2014 at 01:33

        That sounds like a plan.

      • 198 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:56

        *nods*

      • 199 Susan P August 27, 2014 at 15:43

        *surprises the Professor by dumping a bucket of milk over his head*

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 19:35

        *laughing lots* That would certainly do the trick! *tastes it to see if it’s sour milk*

      • 201 Susan P August 27, 2014 at 20:10

        Buttermilk usually is.

      • 202 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 13:28

        And it makes pancakes.

      • 203 Susan P August 28, 2014 at 21:37

        All by itself?

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke August 28, 2014 at 23:31

        No, I’ve tried.

      • 205 Susan P August 29, 2014 at 12:56

        You need a good griddle.

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 13:03

        That’s true.

      • 207 Susan P August 29, 2014 at 16:49

        Or should that be a grill?

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke August 29, 2014 at 20:38

        Oh, one can’t cook those on a grill!

      • 209 Susan P August 29, 2014 at 23:27

        During a hurricane in 2004 a friend of mine made sticky buns on a grill. Why can’t you make them on the grill?

      • 210 Professor VJ Duke August 30, 2014 at 18:08

        That does sound good…but did they taste like burgers?

      • 211 Susan P August 31, 2014 at 18:29

        *laughing* No. She put foil on the grill.

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke August 31, 2014 at 19:08

        Oh! That would fetch the problem, I agree.

      • 213 Susan P September 1, 2014 at 12:50

        Frankly, I prefer raw apple cider vinegar.

      • 214 Professor VJ Duke September 1, 2014 at 14:06

        It’s so tart!

      • 215 Susan P September 2, 2014 at 00:07

        It’s good for what ails you. If nothing ails you, then don’t drink it.

      • 216 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 01:06

        I think I’m ailing.

      • 217 Susan P September 2, 2014 at 13:01

        Well, then. I can send you to the Wizard of Oz for help, but he has a pretty shady reputation.

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke September 2, 2014 at 19:16

        Does he? I’ve always wondered.

      • 219 Susan P September 3, 2014 at 19:31

        Yep. Flim-flam man. Always trying to trick people into thinking he is something he is not.

      • 220 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 20:42

        Sounds…professorish… *gulp and hides*

        *raises eyebrows* Does it now? Don’t hide – it isn’t becoming for a man that looks like a shrub.

      • 222 Professor VJ Duke September 3, 2014 at 23:52

        Aren’t shrubs always hiding?

      • 223 Susan P September 4, 2014 at 01:33

        Shrubs hide things. You are not a thing, are you?

      • 224 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 12:31

        I might be. Maybe I’m hiding under the shrub?

      • 225 Susan P September 4, 2014 at 16:23

        I’d like you to check out the giant cactus that lives across the street. She’s a beauty! I bet you two would get along famously.

      • 226 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 20:02

        But if it’s a she…

      • 227 Susan P September 4, 2014 at 20:07

        If she’s a she what?

      • 228 Professor VJ Duke September 4, 2014 at 20:09

        I don’t talke to lady plants, you know.

      • 229 Susan P September 4, 2014 at 20:17

        Is that related to the duel?

      • 230 Professor VJ Duke September 5, 2014 at 00:56

        Well, I don’t think so… Lady Plants aren’t nice, I hear.

      • 231 Susan P September 5, 2014 at 13:01

        Then they can’t be ladies.

      • 232 Professor VJ Duke September 5, 2014 at 18:26

        Now that’s a very good point.

      • 233 Susan P September 5, 2014 at 19:34

        Really ? It is ? Wow!

      • 234 Professor VJ Duke September 6, 2014 at 15:49

        Yes…don’t you think so?

      • 235 Susan P September 6, 2014 at 17:20

        I don’t put forth anything I cannot back up. Usually, anyway.

      • 236 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 01:01

        Unlike the professor.

      • 237 Susan P September 9, 2014 at 19:47

        What is the professor’s method?

      • 238 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:20

        I say everything–fastly.

      • 239 Susan P September 10, 2014 at 18:04

        I’ve heard you…you speak truth in this matter.

      • 240 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:17

        When did you hear me?

      • 241 Susan P September 10, 2014 at 23:09

        Down by the Old Mill Stream.

      • 242 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:42

        I bet there’s gold in that stream.

      • 243 Susan P September 11, 2014 at 21:49

        Probably nothing worth following up on.

      • 244 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 12:54

        Oh! There could be!!!

      • 245 Susan P September 12, 2014 at 19:50

        ‘splain yourself, sir.

      • 246 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:14

        Well, maybe it’s five feet down!

      • 247 Susan P September 13, 2014 at 18:34

        That seems a little, um, wet.

      • 248 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 12:59

        Just think of it as a good swim.

      • 249 Susan P September 15, 2014 at 14:30

        Why should I do that?

      • 250 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:14

        Well…well…well…dadblameit!

      • 251 Susan P September 15, 2014 at 23:59

        *tapping fingers on table waiting*

      • 252 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:22

        Because swims are fun!

      • 253 Susan P September 16, 2014 at 17:44

        Okay. Duly noted.

      • 254 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:14

        *nods*

  19. 255 The Lite Rider August 25, 2014 at 13:37

    So, Professor, I see you favor juice (for whatever reason). Which means you didn’t want to match your suit ?

    I *loved* how DS arrived and equated water, snakes and Mr. R. (Poor Mr. R!).

    The little mini-duel was fun, too — wondering if the real duel will actually occur. I think there will be a reason why it can’t. Mr. R.’s ladies will probably calm him down.

    • 256 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:43

      *biggest shocked face since ever!* I didn’t think about that at all, LR! Goodness…I do favor juice…cherry juice…but maybe I should rethink. I mean, is this dangerous?

      *laughs* Yes, and DS was probably more the snake than Mr. R!

      Would you like to see it?

      • 257 The Lite Rider August 25, 2014 at 13:46

        No! Cherry juice is excellent!

        Oh yes, a duel between those two? It could be farcical — or dangerous! :)

      • 258 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:24

        Yes, it is! Have you ever had it with the pits in?

        What a cool word! Yes…I see what you mean. I’ll see if I can’t set it up just for you.

      • 259 The Lite Rider August 25, 2014 at 20:34

        Cherry juice with the pits in. No, can’t say as I have, Professor! :/ I would probably choke!

        Oh goodie, a possible skit with those two … dueling. :)

      • 260 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:42

        *laughs* Yes, me too. I was just wondering if it existed. I don’t think so. But you have to be sure. You see, it’s a worry when you eat the fruit; therefore, it should be a worry when you drink it. I was rationalizing, and I shouldn’t ever do that as you can see.

        I wonder if one might die!

  20. 261 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 13:18

    I’m with Mr Ratherquite (not literally, though he is most welcome to visit the Cloud any time he wishes.) Juice is better than milk. Milk is for cows wee babies, though it is also known here as ‘Cow juice’. One would not drink Rat or Elephant juice (good luck if you should try to milk one however), therefore one should not drink Cow juice. Oranges and other fruit are the bestest juice providers. Water mind you…..trounces the lot, so Daddy Salami speaks the truth, without forked tongue.

    – sonmicloud.

    • 262 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:42

      Such a great comment! And very true–everything you said. But…now, Sonmi…wouldn’t you like to try and milk an Elephant? Just once, I mean. Just one solitary time.

      What about cherry juice?

      • 263 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 14:42

        Thank you Professor *curtsies* we try to keep our standards up here on the Cloud *smiles.

        Cherry juice is the devil’s work.

        It’s the pits in fact …..*kertish!.

        – sonmicloud.

      • 264 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:32

        *bows* Every time a lady curtsies the professor must bow, you know.

        It is? *shocked professorish face* But why? The pits?

      • 265 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 20:51

        Gosh we could end up like two clock figures bowing and curtsying until the end of time!

        The pits as in….cherry pits. However, puns aside, it tastes like soot and poo.

        – sonmicloud

      • 266 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:33

        *laughs* I’d break my back, and you’d break your knees!

        Oh, it does not, dadblameit! I mean…I bet you never had any!

      • 267 sonmicloud August 26, 2014 at 12:51

        I have entertained cherry juice. (It was a terrible audience), and found it to be no fun in comparison to blackcurrant juice or indeed the greatest juice of all…Vimto! The juice of the Gods that is, is it, yes it is.

        – sonmicloud

      • 268 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:55

        Vimto! Never heard of it. What’s in it? Berries? Blackcurrant sounds interesting to. Sonmi, you find the coolest juices, it seems!

      • 269 sonmicloud August 26, 2014 at 15:23

        It is made from grapes, raspberries and blackcurrants, flavoured with herbs and spices. Secret ones! Of course I have a degree in Juicology, so I’m in the know *grins*.

        – sonmicloud

      • 270 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:25

        *laughs* No way! Can you get the old professor a degree?

      • 271 sonmicloud August 26, 2014 at 22:46

        Juicology takes several years to complete. However I might be able to get you a High School Diploma in ‘Sorbets And Other Soft Desserts ‘ if you play your cards right. I have some sway in academic circles (mostly ones in the Clouds).

        – sonmicloud.

      • 272 Professor VJ Duke August 27, 2014 at 13:46

        Haha! Great. I was never much good at cards. But…you show me!

  21. 273 walt walker August 25, 2014 at 13:12

    Now this post was very misleading, Professor. I thought it was going to be about the movie Juice starring Tupac Shakur and the movie Milk starring Sean Penn. Since I just watched Juice last night I am feeling somewhat broken-hearted, and perhaps a bit betrayed. Am I wrong to feel this way? Please help.

    Sincerely,

    Walt

    • 274 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:41

      *laughing* Well…goodness! Never knew there was such a movie…or another movie. Well…were they good movies? You see, if they were good movies, it’s okay to feel broken-hearted. If they weren’t…well, you should feel happy for some reason I can’t name at this time.

      • 275 walt walker August 25, 2014 at 22:49

        I don’t know about Milk, but Juice was a bit silly. Now as for actual juices, if that’s what needs talked about, then I’m for orange over apple, although I do like apple. There’s just something about organge that is more natural. I can obliterate an orange and end up with juice, you see, but obliterating an apple just makes a mess. On the other hand, I simply can’t get enough milk. Forget cereal, it’s best with pizza or soup.

        Although it is a bit odd to drink cow juice and not human or kangaroo.

        Am I mad?

        Please help,

        Sincerely,

        Walt

        PS What happened to the news feed? Did you obliterate it?

      • 276 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:48

        Orange over apple, and I must admit: you do have an awesome point. Apple Juice must be natural, though. Milk with pizza? Now, milk in potato soup is a must. (Or is it cream?) But…with pizza? Is the pizza hot? I’ve heard that hot peppers need some milk. And some milk needs hot peppers.

        That’s a good point. Mad? Well, maybe a little. Isn’t it a freeing feeling, though?

        No, I didn’t! This week is one long, continuous, dadblame story! Just trying something new. The news feed will be back next week–especially if you want it!

      • 277 walt walker August 26, 2014 at 13:18

        It’s not about what I want, Old Sport, it’s about what you want to give! I shall take my medicine however I can get it.

        I do fear my comments are spiraling quickly towards the nonsensical.

        Its a bit hot today, I wish I could give my daughters a frozen nonsensicle.

      • 278 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 22:19

        *smiles bigly* But…but…no, the professor will give Mr. Walker what he wants!

        Yes…that seems so. Must be your mind. Aha. The weather definitely… *laughing lots ands lots* Can I have a cherry one?

  22. 279 technophile9 August 25, 2014 at 13:04

    I would say juice as I’m allergic to milk, but I may have a slightly biased opinion. :P And while water is probably better for your health it’s pretty bland.So overall, juice wins.

    • 280 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 13:38

      That’s the spirit, Joe! (Nice to see you, too.) What sort of juice, though? Cherry?

      • 281 technophile9 August 25, 2014 at 14:54

        Good to be back! :) Apple juice. It is superior to all other juices. :P

      • 282 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:33

        Oh wow! I might agree. I love apple juice. Do you have it with breakfast or lunch or dinner?

      • 283 technophile9 August 25, 2014 at 21:28

        All the time! XD

      • 284 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:42

        All around! Well, dadblameit. I see. And it’s quite possible, I do believe.

    • 285 Micah Kipfer August 25, 2014 at 14:47

      Milk is more humane, because to make it the cow lives on, while fruit ‘n’ berries are mashed to bits.

      • 286 technophile9 August 25, 2014 at 14:56

        Hmm, that is true. I guess it depends on your attitude to fruit. :3 However sometimes they have to do all sorts of nasty stuff to get the milk from a cow, so I would say the opposite.

      • 287 Professor VJ Duke August 25, 2014 at 20:32

        What an interest! Did you know cherries scream when you eat them? Maybe it’s my scream as I bite into the pit…do you think that could be it?

      • 288 Micah Kipfer August 25, 2014 at 20:57

        Perhaps…but isn’t your mouth full?

      • 289 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 23:27

        I am not aware of your meaning. However, if it is meant to be unpleasant it is best left. The poor Professor needs no fury in this place. And it is a very nice place indeed. :)

        sonmicloud

      • 290 Micah Kipfer August 26, 2014 at 00:00

        No, I meant no hostility. I was just just saying that you’re right, and then pretending to be stubborn. I’m sorry, I really should’ve written a colon and a bracket to make it seem more friendly. :)

      • 291 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:37

        That’s true. It’s all vexing, I tell you!

      • 292 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 21:43

        Actually they artificially inseminate the cows to keep them pregnant all year round to produce the milk, and at the same time take away their babies continuously when they are only two days old. Soooo humane – wise……….go crush a grape, they aren’t sentient so far as I’m aware ;)

        – sonmicloud

      • 293 Micah Kipfer August 25, 2014 at 23:16

        Yes, well, given that you’re clearly right, and I am most definitely wrong, I’ve chosen to think that we are at an impasse.

      • 294 sonmicloud August 25, 2014 at 23:19

        impasse. A beautiful word. I meant no conflict. Somethings just exist.

        – sonmicloud

      • 295 Micah Kipfer August 26, 2014 at 00:04

        I meant no conflict either, sorry. I’ve been jesting for my side of the conversation the whole time; except for the parts where I was apologizing. (happy face)

      • 296 sonmicloud August 26, 2014 at 00:24

        Hurrah! All is well then *smiles broadly and hands a plate of sticky buns around *

        – sonmicloud

      • 297 Micah Kipfer August 26, 2014 at 00:46

        *all have their fill, the plate never runs out, and no one’s fingers get stickier than they would like*

      • 298 Professor VJ Duke August 26, 2014 at 12:50

        *laughing* I loved these comments! *maybe blushes* Discussions are great. And, you know, the professor needs all the help he can get figuring things out. It’s a wonder all the time.

    • 299 Micah Kipfer August 25, 2014 at 14:56

      I’m sorry for my previous reply. I never meant for it to be a reply at all; but only a regular comment. Please do not drink things that fight back.

      • 300 technophile9 August 25, 2014 at 14:57

        That’s fine! :D

      • 301 Micah Kipfer August 25, 2014 at 15:07

        Great!
