    *laughing* Morris really puts things in a new perspective, doesn’t he?

    And I can’t wait for the ripping!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:40

      He does! Shnod is quite cranky about it, you know. But, Morris is rather entertaining. He wants paid now, though.

      *bows* I’ll be in it–which makes it scary!

      • 3 Catherine September 20, 2014 at 22:36

        Oh, my. How much does one normally get paid for proverbs?

        I don’t think you’ll make it scary! They’re always so good!

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:31

        Well…I’m not sure! Any ideas what we should pay the bloke?

        Aw, thanks! (It scares me!)

      • 5 Catherine September 21, 2014 at 22:13

        You could always give him a lollipop or two, I suppose, if nothing else works.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke September 22, 2014 at 19:46

        That’s a very good point.

  2. 7 Hazy September 17, 2014 at 12:55

    I’ve never been too good with poetry too, Morris. I hated analyzing them at school! I do like Annabel Lee by Poe, though. And that poem about a lovely tree.

    Lottie, Malone, and the Professor at cashew city! What a coincidence! Were you guys having cherry ice cream with hot fudge and cashews together or something?

    I can’t imagine being adopted by DS. I would probably rather be adopted by the scientist… or maybe stay un-adopted.

    Big and chubby… I suddenly thought of Big Fish, but I doubt that’s the movie. *laughs*

    We don’t have fall season here… Do you like it?

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:35

      Annabel Lee is a nice poem! You had to analyze it? Wow!

      No! I was spying on them. Like Weatherly would do!

      *nods* Scientist might run tests on you, and DS…well, that would be scary.

      *laughs* Who’s Big Fish?

      I do! It’s cool. Is it hot there all the time?

      • 9 Hazy September 29, 2014 at 12:42

        Every poem tackled in English class had to be analyzed, I’m afraid. Teacher’s orders. (booo! I despised Shakespeare’s sonnets then… so difficult!)

        Ah, spying eh? Have you gathered anything from your spying?

        Haha, the movie Big Fish is the title.

        Most of the time, hot, yes. Although these days it’s the rainy season, so tons of typhoons! (so hot one moment and then rains heavily the next *phooey*)

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke September 29, 2014 at 14:53

        Well, that’s impressive. I would have died, I think.

        No. I think I’m rather horrid at it. The most horrid spy ever!

        Aha! Never knew it existed. Looks interesting.

        Oh, rats. Well…I still have to visit one day!

      • 11 Hazy October 7, 2014 at 11:36

        Weatherly says you’re not as horrid a spy as you think you are.

        Yes, someday! Visit in the summery hot months. It will be humid, yes. But we have quite a number of lovely beaches.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:05

        Aw! Tell Weatherly thank you.

        That’d be such fun. I’d get real tan in that heat, I think.

  3. 13 icedmocha34 September 16, 2014 at 20:26

    Adoption is cool!! Daddy Salami should totally adopt a kid!! My youth pastor/SLT leader, Ryan and his wife are starting to foster now!!

    • 14 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:29

      That’s cool! I bet they like it. And DS did! He’s got a daughter now.

      • 15 icedmocha34 September 17, 2014 at 16:40

        Awesome!!!! It’s so sad cos Ryan can’t have kids…I bet you’d be the best dad in the world. That’s normally how I judge people…whether they’d be a good dad or not.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 20:15

        *nods* It is a good way to judge. But wouldn’t it be hard to tell sometimes?

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 20:15

        You think the professor would a great dad?

  4. 18 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 00:37

    It’s getting chilly here, too. And Morris does have a few points, though I think Ruber puts things better. :-P
    So, DS is missing? (I wonder, did Lannis Raeche kidnap him? :-P )

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:31

      Do you like the chilliness? Yes…well, Morris is worse than Shnod, sin’t he?

      He is! *laughs* A possibility. (Did you?)

      • 20 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:28

        I do, a bit. I get chilly, though.
        He is indeed. :-P
        (Well, now that you ask, I didn’t. But I could have. I was spying on him, you know. :-P)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:29

        I didn’t know! How’d the spying go?

      • 22 erinkenobi2893 September 17, 2014 at 21:45

        Mostly well, but rather tiring, you know. And I forgot my cloak, so I got cold, but it was profitable. Did you know that DS is planning to try to raise the roof on his hut? I don’t know if he will succeed, but he wants to use some sort of crane to lift the roof and then he wants to build the walls higher to match it. I didn’t find out if he was planning to leave the crane there or not, but I wouldn’t put it past him if he decided not to return it.

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:38

        *laughing lots* Now this is something he’d try! And I’m rather sure he’s going to fail…where do you suppose he’ll try and get the crane from?

      • 24 erinkenobi2893 September 18, 2014 at 15:23

        I don’t know. Probably from Prince Beef’s construction sites, I suppose.

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:25

        The G. Miller Co. That who he uses, I think. Maybe we should stop DS.

      • 26 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 12:51

        We probably should.

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke September 19, 2014 at 18:03

        *nods*

      • 28 erinkenobi2893 September 19, 2014 at 20:09

        It would keep him from destroying his hut, as well. And I don’t know what the PL would do if he was homeless… O_o

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:24

        Could you imagine that? He’d be roaming about. Though, it’s said he has a few homes about.

      • 30 erinkenobi2893 September 21, 2014 at 20:16

        It would be bad if he was homeless, for EVERYONE in the PL.
        That’s as may be. I guess….

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke September 22, 2014 at 19:43

        True. Imagine him trolling about Prince Beef’s castle.

      • 32 erinkenobi2893 September 23, 2014 at 00:18

        Trolling? I think you mean strolling, not the internet phenomenon. :-P And yes, he would make quite a mess!

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2014 at 14:12

        Oh no. I’m sure DS could troll about. In the PL it sorta refers to reaping destruction everywhere. Like a troll would.

      • 34 erinkenobi2893 September 23, 2014 at 16:35

        Ah. :-P So, not that different from the internet, then. :-P

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2014 at 19:57

        Not at all, I fear.

      • 36 erinkenobi2893 September 23, 2014 at 20:17

        :-P

  5. 37 walt walker September 15, 2014 at 23:48

    “Rats always seem to be running at the same pace to my thinking.” Well, now that’s not half bad, actually. Are you sure there is no one worse?

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:19

      Goodness me. Well, I put out an ad, Walt, and Morris applied. That was it. I think Wilfred might be just as bad, or worse, though.

      • 39 walt walker September 16, 2014 at 20:49

        Well, you should ask them to prove it to us.

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:30

        I should. What do you suppose the worst poet’s name is in the PL?

      • 41 walt walker September 17, 2014 at 23:18

        Do you mean the name of the worst poet, or the worst name for a poet? Those are two important questions which I would answer differently.

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:39

        Ooo, now I want the answers to both, please!

      • 43 walt walker September 18, 2014 at 17:44

        Romeo Lovesock might be in the running for worst poet.

        And the worst name for a poet might be Dick Hercules. His poetry is not very good, either.

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:29

        *laughing lots* Now…there is some interest here. Do you think, Walt, that either of those chaps would send in some stuff if you were to ask them?

      • 45 walt walker September 19, 2014 at 02:03

        Mr. Hercules might have something, He is a man of few words, though.

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke September 19, 2014 at 17:59

        Do you suppose you can get anything out of him?

      • 47 walt walker September 19, 2014 at 21:32

        We shall see.

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:27

        Many thanks, my man.

      • 49 walt walker September 18, 2014 at 18:08

        There’s also Flipper Leibowitz.

        And that guy they just call Johnny Poems.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:29

        Now his last name is quite special. Johnny Poems…is he a natural, then?

  6. 51 The Lite Rider September 15, 2014 at 21:25

    I like Morris’s rip of the proverbs. And I like his second rip the best!

    Meanwhile, Daddy Salami is off working on a scheme or plotting. Or both. I know we will find out. Ruber is so naive, but as he says, he does have a food establishment to run.

    Of course MM and LO were seen together — birds, sort of, of a feather.

    I wish our surroundings were as cool as the studio! :)

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:34

      Yes! Isn’t he something vicious! He’s like Aqualung, you know.

      Yeah, I bet Ruber knows he’ll come back. You know, this isn’t the first time DS has done this.

      For sure! Do you suppose they like each other?

      *laughing* It’s too cold!

      • 53 The Lite Rider September 16, 2014 at 19:59

        LO and MM like each other as mercenaries would. That’s not saying a lot.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:24

        Good point! I bet they’re planning to betray each other soon!

  7. 55 Susan P September 15, 2014 at 18:52

    I thought Morris was a cat? I bet DS is up to no good. I mean, what else does he do? All you need now is the Lottie?

    Nick, I am now officially freaked out.

    • 56 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member September 15, 2014 at 20:28

      It’s not THAT bad.

      • 57 Susan P September 15, 2014 at 23:55

        Right. *raised eyebrow*

    • 58 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:27

      He was? How so, madam? He could be searching! I need Lottie?! But why?!

      • 59 Susan P September 16, 2014 at 00:08

        Only you know that. You mean you don’t know why you need her?

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:29

        I do not need her, dadblameit! Hey! You’re messing with my mind, aren’t you?

      • 61 Susan P September 16, 2014 at 17:53

        Gurgles

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

        And what’s that mean?

      • 63 Susan P September 17, 2014 at 14:53

        It means beware.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 20:05

        Is it Pez-ish, do you think?

      • 65 Susan P September 17, 2014 at 23:36

        More like profsorish.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:42

        I don’t gurgle, madam!

      • 67 Susan P September 18, 2014 at 19:50

        Gargle?

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:34

        Is it the same thing?

      • 69 Susan P September 18, 2014 at 21:23

        Sometimes it is.

  8. 70 John W. Howell September 15, 2014 at 18:39

    I think Morris may be on to a deeper understanding of the proverbs. Talking knowledge is not possession. Rats seems to be in a hurry all the time weather on a sinking ship or in the dark.

    • 71 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:27

      That’s a great point. Now, about the rats. Do you suppose they run even in the light?

      • 72 John W. Howell September 16, 2014 at 13:23

        If I were a rat I would run before the light and then freeze when the light hits. Imitating a stuffed bookend would be on the agenda as well.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:45

        *nods* Now that is ingenious. I would try and so the same thing. But, imagine if one’s foot was caught in the air when the light came on. That would be a problem.

      • 74 John W. Howell September 16, 2014 at 14:47

        Worse three, which is how horses gallop.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:08

        Uhh…but a rat may fall like that. It’s a possibility.

      • 76 John W. Howell September 17, 2014 at 16:25

        That’s why it is worse. :-)

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 20:13

        *nods laughing* It’s a wonder.

  9. 78 FictionFan September 15, 2014 at 17:55

    Morris and Shnoddy sound as if they were made for each other!

    Should we be worried about the mention of DS’s disappearance being in the same sentence as Ruber’s cooking?

    Hmm…spying, Professor? Or stalking…??

    • 79 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:26

      Would you like to dance with Morris, FEF? I hear he was once a prince!

      Nah! DS is on a journey! Isn’t that quite exciting?

      Stalking…I think that’s what it is. Do spies stalk?

      • 80 FictionFan September 16, 2014 at 12:18

        I’m not sure if it would be befitting for a future Queen to dance with an ex-Prince. Anyway I’d be too busy dancing with the Professor. Why was he drummed out of his princehood?

        Depends. If he’s on a journey to exotic lands filled with adventure and opportunities for heroism, then yes. If, on the other hand, he’s off to the supermarket, not so much…

        Only when they are obsessed with the woman they are spying on… *narrows eyes accusingly*

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:42

        Aren’t we only dancing once, though? (Does BUS dance? *laughs*) Well, his story is a sad one…you probably don’t want to hear it!

        And he was off getting a daughter! What do you make of that? I find it an interest.

        *laughs* Of course I’m not! I told you I wasn’t. I’d tell her…if I liked her!

      • 82 FictionFan September 16, 2014 at 18:40

        I’m assuming you’ll love it so much you’ll want to dance all night. (Not with you she doesn’t – if she values her life! *jealous face*) Well, that depends…

        I find it…weird and just a little bit creepy… *looks round for fretful porpentine*

        I see! So just remind me again – why are you following her around ‘spying’ on her then?

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:18

        But…isn’t it tiring a bit, bits, and little bits? (You wouldn’t hurt poor BUS!) Yes, it’s really sad.

        It was only a matter of time. Once he raises them… (More a mental raising.) He gets a new one. It must be a game of sorts.

        I was spying on Mark!

      • 84 FictionFan September 18, 2014 at 19:38

        Nah! The man does most of the work – I’ll be fine! (If she stole my Professor, I’d…I’d…well let’s just say it wouldn’t be pleasant…) Then I want to hear it…

        A very strange game then. Must be American.

        Uh-huh! I believe you! *sceptical face*

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 20:31

        He does? I must know close to nothing about dancing. (You can’t fight…Nessie!) You want to hear it? Well, some say he was Prince Beef’s brother. And that he was disowned when a lad because he was rude at the table. So, they cut off two of his fingers and sent him away. Terrible, isn’t it?

        I’m told–be secret sources–that Salami is Scottish!

        Umm…thank you?

      • 86 FictionFan September 20, 2014 at 20:23

        Then think of the fun you’ll have learning…

        Well, that’s a horrid story! But just how you’d expect royalty to behave, I s’pose…

        I’m not Scottish any more. I’m British. *tragic tear-stained face*

        Umm…you’re welcome?

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:29

        Well…but sometimes I wonder if you know how!

        *nods* It’s a pity. But I’m sure you won’t be that way when you become queen of Scotland!

        *laughs* It’s not that bad…

        Umm…dadblameit!

      • 88 FictionFan September 22, 2014 at 18:18

        Well, it’s a bit like the Theory of Relativity – I’ve got a grasp of the big picture but the details still elude me…but we can improvise… and if that doesn’t work we can always go back in time and try again…

        Can’t ever be queen of Scotland now! *sobs bitterly* Queen of a Wee Bit of the UK just doesn’t have the same ring somehow…

        Umm…agreed!

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke September 22, 2014 at 20:01

        *laughs* I can just see this…how about we call the whole thing off? I’ll give you some chocolate instead. That’ll fetch you!

        Oh dear. I did hear about that. Well…you can lead the revolt!

  10. 90 Julie Harris September 15, 2014 at 17:45

    Morris is a witty one, isn’t he? Any more hints about the next ripping movie review??

    • 91 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:26

      He is! Well…it’s an ugly beast in the movie!

  11. 92 Lady Cheetah September 15, 2014 at 15:37

    I think Mr. Morris was a good addition, a funny addition to the proverbs that is. And so I read that DS was missing. Seems to me his absence is quite welcomed. Even his son Ruber has nothing to say. I think I can still have faith in Ruber as I was about to give up on him.

    “V. Shnodgrate: The rats run swiftly when they think the light is coming.”

    I love his proverbs so I couldn’t help but to pick out the winner. This must be the answer to my proverbial problems of dealing with numbnuts, I mean people. Could it be they see the light when I come and run? Ha! Or perhaps it is the light that tells me that they are indeed rats at heart. Inquiring mind wants to know.

    Lastly, I can’t wait for the next ripping video. My interest is peeked since you were incredibly bored; therefore, I am expecting and incredible rip! :-)

    • 93 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:23

      Give up on Ruber?! But why? He’s a decent chap, I’m sure.

      Well, good points, I think. If it was Christmas time, Lady, I’d say it was your halo that makes them run. The light from the halo must be lots. You don’t have your halo now, do you?

      *laughs* I wanted to skip the whole movie!

      • 94 Lady Cheetah September 16, 2014 at 01:50

        Oh! You remembered the halo. Ah yes. Surely it can’t be my solid gold 10k halo that would have those verments scatter…but then again the light is to be feared. ..maybe. Besides my halo is for special occasions. It is seasonal you know.

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:33

        *laughing lots* Oh, I do now! Hey…do you suppose you might be able to get me one for Christmas time?

      • 96 Lady Cheetah September 16, 2014 at 16:03

        I can’t promise you but I will see what I can do.

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:13

        *bows* I will be in your debt.

  12. 98 L. Marie September 15, 2014 at 14:17

    I have taken Morris to my heart already. Still, I wonder if he had anything to do with Daddy Salami’s disappearance. Or is it just a coincidence that he appears in the newsletter the same time Daddy Salami disappears?

    How interesting that LottieOllie and Mark Malone were seen together. Is there a romance brewing?

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

      Purely a coincidence, I assure you. Morris is a nice chap. Unassuming and very peaceful. In fact, he frustrates DS at times. So, it would be much more appropriate if it were the other way around.

      I think there could be! He is her mentor, but still…that’s what I’m trying to figure out! Do you suppose it’s okay if I follow them?

  13. 100 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 15, 2014 at 13:52

    Poor Shnoddy! Morris sounds a bit like he’s related to DS….

    Why is my Magi tired? What sort if tiring business has he been up to, Duke?

    Lottie and Mark were dancing into the night, weren’t they?

    I bet Duke’s watching King Kong!

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:56

      Morris Tramp? Nah, I bet he isn’t. Maybe he knows DS?

      Going about the land. Then he always retires to his cave to sleep, meditate, and drink tea, you know.

      Dancing? It’s possible. I was spying on them! *proud face*

      *laughs* Close!

      • 102 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 15, 2014 at 19:47

        What do I know….yes, I was figuring friends probably.

        Sounds like a great setup. He deserves downtime, for sure. Sounds like something you would do…

        Figures you were and I hope you learned a bunch about them.

        Dang it….Godzilla was my other guess.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:28

        I would do something like that–when the moon is yellow.

        I kinda do. They’re odd, Audith!

        Godzilla…what about him? Are you calling the professor godzilla? *shocked face*

      • 104 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 16, 2014 at 02:23

        When is the moon yellow?

        I’m sure and have no doubt.

        I’m guessing on the movie you were watching today, Duke! Keep it together, man….Godzilla could be considered chubby by MM, I bet. So if it isn’t King Kong or Godzilla, maybe you were watching Kung Fu Panda.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:34

        Well, I suppose it’s always yellow, huh?

        Oh! *laughs* Sorry! Umm…I love Kung Fu Panda. Did you know I’m Po?

      • 106 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 16, 2014 at 19:25

        Mine seems to be white here, actually. Yellow sounds better.

        *laughs* Yes, you’ve mentioned it.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:20

        You must not see the cheese side, then!

        Yes, I’m like him, because he’s a good fighter.

      • 108 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 17, 2014 at 20:42

        Something like that, probably. Cheese looks different in Texas.

        Yeah, well, we’ve yet to witness your fighting skills, so I will take your word for it.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke September 18, 2014 at 14:31

        I bet it has worms in it there.

        I’m more skillful than a lion, promise.

      • 110 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 18, 2014 at 20:59

        Hey! Only the stuff I throw out.

        Oh yeah? How do you know? Fought any lately?

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke September 19, 2014 at 17:48

        You don’t eat worms??

        Well, I fought a lizard…

      • 112 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 19, 2014 at 19:28

        No, you can have all of mine.

        Not any of my lizards.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke September 21, 2014 at 19:20

        I’m not sure I want them… *laughs*

        You have a lizard?

      • 114 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 21, 2014 at 20:50

        Aha! You don’t eat them either! *smirks*

        Just some jumping about the bushes outside.

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke September 22, 2014 at 19:45

        Of course not! Yucketh.

        Oh…rats.

      • 116 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 22, 2014 at 23:22

        *wonders why he asumes I do*

        No lizards.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke September 23, 2014 at 14:10

        Yes, I’m not sure.

      • 118 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 23, 2014 at 20:10

        *snarls*

      • 119 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member September 15, 2014 at 20:30

        Godzilla is chubby, you think?

  14. 120 Debbie September 15, 2014 at 13:36

    I like #2 this morning (and Morris’ comments are quite fun!). It feels Fall-ish here, too — temps get down to 40 or 50 at night. The trees seem as surprised as the rest of us, though, and aren’t turning at all.

    I’m not at all sure D.S. needs another ‘child,’ Professor. Seems he’s turned loose enough progeny with Ruber.

    Another rip on the way? Awesome!

    • 121 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:52

      The trees here are turning! Isn’t it nice…having cooler temps at night?

      *laughs* And you know, he has Lucini, too. Though he’s usually barely mentioned. But I don’t think anything can stop DS. He seems…like he likes adopting. *shudders*

      Yes!

  15. 122 Bethy September 15, 2014 at 13:30

    I love Morris! I don’t think he’s horrible at all.

    What is a quick hibernation?

    • 123 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:51

      You do? *laughs* Shnod’s going to be mad now! He was better than Shnod, wasn’t he?

      Well, it’s a quick nap. Mr. Magi is always hibernating, you see.

      • 124 Bethy September 16, 2014 at 15:05

        Yes, he was better then Shnod this week. I can’t believe we haven’t ever heard from him before.

        I see. Well I want to do more quick hibernating myself!

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

        It is a wonder. He’s just a regular sort of tramp, I hear.

        Yes, imagine sleeping for a few days!

      • 126 Bethy September 22, 2014 at 14:57

        That just isn’t feasible around my house.

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

        Yes…I do know what you mean.

  16. 128 PorterGirl September 15, 2014 at 13:22

    Morris is a super chap, and no mistake! I love his responses to the proverbs. Very insightful. But will we get to hear any of his bad poems, that’s the thing? Bad poetry is so much more fun than good poetry.

    Oh no, DS is missing?! Where can he be? Ruber doesn’t seem too worried. I hope he is okay. I wish I lived near Cashew City, I would be there all the time.

    DS can adopt me, if he likes. I am somewhat older than a child but I could pretend to be one if that helps.

    Can’t wait for the new ripping!

    • 129 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:50

      You know, Lucy, I will ask Morris for some poetry. And I hope it will be bad. What is bad poetry like?

      Yes! Me too. Cashews…I might live on them, you’d have to stop me. DS…is probably out on an adventure. I bet Ruber is happy, don’t you think?

      Well, Ruber is older too, you know. And Lucini. They’re both adults. So…DS doesn’t care. He might adopt you! But would you like that?

      • 130 PorterGirl September 15, 2014 at 15:11

        Don’t tell anyone but I rather think nearly all poetry is bad. But really, hilariously bad poetry that takes itself very seriously is entertaining. Or badly-rhyming poems, I love them.

        Ruber does sound quite happy. Mind you, DS can be quite draining at times so he might be glad of the peace and quiet. I had some cashews today, with brazil nuts!

        I wondered that as Ruber and Lucini were all grown up, maybe DS missed having a little one around. But I would like him to adopt me. Maybe Ruber would give me a job at his food place, that would be fun.

      • 131 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:21

        I need to read more poetry! But, see here, I fear that I might die if I do…

        Nice! Aren’t Brazil nuts nutty? I mean…like very nutty!

        Oh, I’m sure Ruber would hire you. And DS would want him too–if you were his sister. You see, it’s sorta like a power thing. DS cares for his children. But he doesn’t have a daughter yet!

      • 132 PorterGirl September 16, 2014 at 07:30

        I would avoid poetry, if I were you. No good ever came of it.

        Very nutty indeed! And great with chocolate.

        I should be his daughter! Then I could work for Ruber. What fun that would be!

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:39

        *nods* You’re probably right. But…imagine professorish poetry!

        There you go. Cashews covered in chocolate are some of the best things on this earth!

        *laughs* But would you like him bothering you all the time? He watches over his children, you know.

      • 134 PorterGirl September 16, 2014 at 15:01

        Professorish poetry would be pretty fabulous I should think! You should write some.

        Oh they are! And now I simply have to have some.

        I wouldn’t mind for a while, but if I got fed up with it I suppose I could run away. But it is quite sweet how he watches over his children.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:09

        It’d be horrid, which would be good.

        Yes, me too…

        He’d follow you, no doubt! Well, he’s not that much of a pain. Just at certain times, I guess.

      • 136 PorterGirl September 17, 2014 at 15:18

        The badder the better, Professor *laughs*

        I actually went to the shop to buy some yesterday. They were very good indeed.

        I think I would quite like DS to adopt me. I like the idea of someone looking after me!

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 20:09

        Haha, okay…!

        Nice! I need to do it. But the wonder is, I don’t think there’s a shop around here where they’re sold. One farther away. Oh well, I’ll just have to make a trip of it one day.

        *laughs* DS would definitely make sure you were safe!

  17. 138 Simply Skeptical September 15, 2014 at 13:18

    Shrouded in mystery as is your want Prof. So, what’s this about another child for Salami? Have a heart. (Laughing) Really another ripping oh super goodie! BUT about something/one chubby? What/who could it be? When can’t wait. (Laughing again).

    About the Fall temps. About the Fall temps. it is September afterall. The warm sun is nice and the vibrant colors are just waiting to burst. Is it like that in the PL? My favorite time of the year! Happy soon-to-be officially Fall Prof. and team.

    • 139 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:49

      The professor is an open book, I think. You know he is!

      It is the best time of the year! Well, the PL is like earth, so it has all the climates. When you think of the PL, think of a map of earth. Does that make sense?
