    I like the second and third proverbs, the third proverb especially :-D
    Funky haiku. :-P And the bad poetry isn’t that bad this time. It’s actually pretty funny. :-P
    Oh, and Fats Henry falling off a ferris wheel–wish I’d been there to see that! X-D

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2014 at 19:33

      What’s a haiku? I’ve always wondered. And I even think it was explained to me once upon a time.

      *laughs* It made a boom.

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 October 22, 2014 at 20:24

        Three lines with a defined number of syllables, I think.
        X-P Probably it did.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke October 24, 2014 at 15:51

        Aha! I’m learning all about poetry, I think.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 October 25, 2014 at 01:01

        Yup. ^_^ If you want to know what a sonnet is, you can ask Rosalie… or David Tennant… X-P

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke October 26, 2014 at 19:08

        Oh, Rosalie wouldn’t know; she’s a Sith.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 October 26, 2014 at 22:34

        NO SHE’S NOT! >:-(

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 27, 2014 at 13:12

        She admitted she was a Sentinel, and we all know that Sentinels eventually become Sith. I did.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 October 28, 2014 at 12:01

        Not all Sentinels. Seriously. There are a bunch of Sentinels who NEVER become Sith. It’s just the fact that one tree falling makes much more noise than a whole forest standing… and besides, Anakin Skywalker became a Sith and no one says the same about Jedi Guardians or the Jedi Order in general!

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:09

        Bet he was a Sentinel at heart!

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 October 29, 2014 at 13:18

        Nah. He was too LOUD to be a Sentinel, even at heart.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:40

        That’s a very good point. Qui-gon should have been, then.

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 October 30, 2014 at 00:16

        Qui-Gon?! No way. Qui-Gon is too honest and open.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 30, 2014 at 13:23

        Maybe he should have been a Sith then.

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 November 1, 2014 at 19:22

        Nah, Sith don’t DO honest and open.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke November 2, 2014 at 23:50

        But this Sith does. (I must say, you look good in a uniform.)

      • 17 erinkenobi2893 November 3, 2014 at 14:40

        Really? Could’ve fooled me… :-P
        Ha ha. (I changed mine because I was bored and Iris changed hers to Iron Man on another site.)

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke November 3, 2014 at 15:42

        Dadblameit! I’m honest and open. (You’re making me like him more.)

      • 19 erinkenobi2893 November 4, 2014 at 01:05

        Well, sure, but it’s not a commonly Sithly trait. (YES! >:-D)

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke November 4, 2014 at 14:31

        Maybe it is! You’re just…predisposed to dislike us.

      • 21 erinkenobi2893 November 4, 2014 at 14:48

        Hmph. I think everyone is predisposed to dislike Sith. Because most Sith are just nasty.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:31

        They’re just grumpy most of the time.

      • 23 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 13:33

        Hmph. They’re just grumpy ALL the time.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke November 5, 2014 at 13:49

        That’s how warriors are.

      • 25 erinkenobi2893 November 5, 2014 at 14:00

        Nah.

  2. 26 Hazy October 7, 2014 at 12:08

    I kinda like III. Mr. Fear needs to be taught a lesson sometimes.

    I feel lucky no crows ever attacked me when I braved a Ferris wheel. It was nighttime, though; maybe they were asleep.

    What kind of popsicle? Does it give frost bites?

    Either Schwarz didn’t hear you call him a lady, or he chose to ignore it…

    • 27 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:07

      He sure does! A stinky one, too.

      They probably were. Did you like it?

      A cherry one? Or lime. Maybe it was lime. *laughing lots* That’s a good one. I think it does!

      I think he didn’t hear…I didn’t mean it either…

      • 28 Hazy December 16, 2014 at 14:40

        Did I like riding the Ferris Wheel? Sort of. Yeah, I think so.

        Did I like not being attacked by crows? Definitely! *laughs*

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2014 at 16:19

        That’s how I feel about it, really.

        *laughs*

  3. 30 Simply Skeptical October 7, 2014 at 00:50

    I like proverb 3 since fear can be quite crippling and deserves a dirty sock to the mouth if not more.
    Well did the car intentionally almost hit VJ & Mr. Warren or not?
    What did Schwarz think of the Professor referring to him as a lady? (Laughing)
    Pancakes to the moon quite an original indeed.

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:02

      It sure did. Happened on Sunday, you know…

      I don’t think Schwarz caught it, but, I don’t think I caught it either!

      It sure is.

  4. 32 Sonya Solomonovich October 6, 2014 at 22:47

    I can sympathise with the professor re: almost hit by a car incident. I was almost hit by a speeding bicycle this morning!

    • 33 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:02

      No! Did you attack the bicyclist?

      • 34 Sonya Solomonovich October 7, 2014 at 22:29

        I did, but only verbally.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:39

        *laughs* Sounds…spicy of you!

  5. 36 Julie Harris October 6, 2014 at 21:04

    Love proverbs #2 & 3! And the campfire poem makes me want to roast marshmallows!!

    • 37 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:51

      Marshmallows! I haven’t done that in ages. Probably last did that about 50 years ago!

  6. 38 Debbie October 6, 2014 at 18:02

    Proverb #2 resonates with me today. #3 comes in a close second.

    Do popsicles really break off one’s teeth? I’ve never heard that before, Professor. Having eaten at least a few popsicles in my day, I can assure you I’ve never had that happen (thank goodness!)

    You need to be more careful, Professor. Cars really don’t go looking for pedestrians to hit, but that’s not to say *drivers* don’t aim for people who are walking!

    • 39 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:49

      Shnod has an act for it, I say.

      *laughs* Well, it’s a fear of mine. Of course, it could be professorish. I mean, I worry about that all the time, since one thing sorta happened.

      Aha! It was on purpose, then?

  7. 40 Bethy October 6, 2014 at 15:40

    I think that this is an excellent newsletter. I have never been on a Ferris wheel…now I know what to expect. I liked proverb #1 the bestest. Also the bit about pancakes as I was just thinking about pancakes myself.

    • 41 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:47

      Pancakes are worth thinking about. Well, Bethy, I wouldn’t say that it’s normal to get attacked by crows on a Ferris Wheel. In fact, I’d say it was rare.

      • 42 Bethy October 9, 2014 at 13:28

        Well that’s a relief. One less thing to worry about. Now I just have to worry about the fact that it is just so high.

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 19:42

        The love of Spider-Man is not in you! He’d jump!

      • 44 Bethy October 10, 2014 at 14:02

        Nope, I am not a Spider-Man fan.

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke October 10, 2014 at 14:14

        *shocked face* But he like swings from buildings and stuff…

      • 46 Bethy October 10, 2014 at 14:28

        But SPIDERS. Weird radioactive spiders. So creepy. As far as superheros go I’m more of a batman person. At least he chose to be weird. And bats eat bugs.

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:21

        Yes…but did he have bat bugs?

      • 48 Bethy October 13, 2014 at 13:04

        I dunno. What are bat bugs? He had issues I do know that.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 22:39

        They’re like bed bugs, only for bats.

      • 50 Bethy October 16, 2014 at 14:45

        uh. YUCKIES.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke October 16, 2014 at 23:03

        *laughs*

      • 52 Bethy October 20, 2014 at 10:09

        You only laugh because you probably haven’t experienced bed bugs. I don’t think they are a laughing matter. Unless you are laughing instead of crying.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke October 20, 2014 at 18:57

        I’ve actually experienced bat bugs. I thought they were bed bugs at first.

      • 54 Bethy October 20, 2014 at 19:28

        How did you tell the difference?

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke October 21, 2014 at 14:25

        Well…I didn’t at first. I sent one into a lab. Here’s the thing: bat bugs–when their hosts leave–will come into the house and seek out other warm blooded…specimens. Now, they will hide in the same places as a regular bed bug would. But…they can’t reproduce on human blood. In fact, they’ll starve without bats. So, it became clear that there wasn’t many of them. Still, it was a shock.

      • 56 Bethy October 22, 2014 at 12:55

        I guess that would be a shock. Maybe it’s a good thing the bats left? I mean bats can be pretty startling.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2014 at 19:34

        They can be. But I sorta liked them.

      • 58 Bethy October 25, 2014 at 01:14

        They were your good buddies?

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke October 26, 2014 at 19:09

        They kept the mosquitoes away.

      • 60 Bethy October 27, 2014 at 13:13

        YES! That’s why I like bats. I would let them move into my yard if they wanted. Sometimes we can see them flying around at dusk

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke October 27, 2014 at 13:18

        You mean, you don’t run from them? I always thought girls were afraid of that sort of thing.

      • 62 Bethy October 28, 2014 at 14:01

        I fear I’m an odd sort of girl. I don’t like having to smash bugs, but if there is no one else around to do I will just get it done. The princess even complimented me on my bravery for killing a roach the other day.
        As long as the bats are up there flying around I’m fine. Usually they are too smart to fly in my face anyway. Besides biting bugs are horrible terrible in FL so the more bats the better I say.

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:18

        *laughing* The Princess was impressed, which is rather cool. But…you didn’t want to keep it at all?

        *nods* Yeah…mozzies here aren’t too bad.

      • 64 Bethy October 28, 2014 at 20:28

        Nope didn’t want to keep it at all. It was cool that she was impressed.

        Here the mozzies are as big as my hand sometimes. Scary.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:25

        *laughs* Rats!

        Seriously? Yucketh!

      • 66 Bethy October 29, 2014 at 19:25

        Very buckets. The Good thing about the big ones is they don’t move fast so it is easy to hasten their demise.

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 20:56

        *laughs* Love the expression. That’s…just horrid.

      • 68 Bethy October 31, 2014 at 13:03

        At least auto correct is amusing sometimes!

      • 69 Professor VJ Duke October 31, 2014 at 18:56

        We must keep it now.

  8. 70 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 15:07

    I agree with Shnoddy on all the proverbs this week, but after my morning I think #3 was written for me. I have missed these proverbs.

    Mr. Magi deserves tea. I’ll get busy finding the kettle.

    How about popcicles on a ferris wheel? I think that sounds perfect! And like a blast…

    Dick H. Is a fine poet. He writes a variety of poems which I cannot do and envy. I love pancakes.

    I’m very happy y’all weren’t hit by those women, Duke. It’s what you two get for being so creative and amazing. They were flirting with you, I think. *smiles*

    • 71 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:47

      *laughing* You’re morning was one to remember, I’d say. I would have been laughing if I was with you, I”m sorry to say. I’d be laughing if it happened to my car.

      And the Sotsiz leaf, you know.

      But…what if the Ferris Wheel falls over?

      He is rather good. But is his poetry real poetry? I don’t now.

      Were they? I do think they recognized me. Of course, I had to be a bit professorish. That way, the whole thing was burned into their memories.

      • 72 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 21:14

        *laughs all over again* I would have been fine with you laughing. Nothing else to do about it but laugh, Duke.

        Yes, that is fine, too. Probably needs it, I guess.

        Do you think it could? I enjoy a ferris wheel but not when I’m stuck at the top.

        Yes, tis real poetry. Looks at Keats!!?! That is poetry.

        Yes, I do think maybe they were. When one is as popular as you are, you’re bound to be noticed. Haha…I just be you did. I want you to do that for me, too.

      • 73 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:53

        Yes, I do think you’re right. *laughs*

        He does.

        Me neither. Though, I haven’t been on one for a while.

        Who’s Keats?!

        Yes, but I’m not sure they knew me…maybe they did, ’cause of things. It was funny…

      • 74 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 7, 2014 at 19:25

        You should go and feed the seagulls while your riding the ferris wheel.

        Seriously???? Never mind, Duke.

        ‘Cause of things… *laughs* Yeah, maybe.

      • 75 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 20:01

        I should! They’d try to eat me, I bet.

        Rats. Not my fault!

        Yes…I was sorta…put out front. Too bad I can’t say anymore about it.

      • 76 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 8, 2014 at 03:47

        Mostly, they just want the bread. Hand over the bread, Duke. That is the secret.

        It is always your fault.

        Front is best. Unless one is in a classroom then the back is nice. I sat in the front row a conference the other day and made a spectacle of myself. It wasn’t my fault.

      • 77 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:45

        Yes…but I want it!

        Now how is this the case?

        *laughing* What’d you do, Audith? (I bet it was hilarious!)

      • 78 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 8, 2014 at 13:16

        ….I want the bread, too. I guess they would settle for your eyeballs.

        Oh, I’m just surprised that you don’t know Keats, ’tis all.

        Well, I had a speech wrote in my head, to address some constant chattering found at the back of the room. You don’t want to know what came out of my mouth when I finally blew up. The conference on children’s brain development, I’ll have you know. My brain stoooed working as I stood up and turned around. I told them…”this is how this session works, she talks *points to the speaker* and we *signals to the room* ……shut our…mouths…. *silence*….*speaker thanks me* *staff snickers at me* * my brain begins working again*

      • 79 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:44

        Ew! I’d take them with my ka-bar!

        Yeah, I probably should… *gulp*

        *laughing lots and lots* Now that was brilliant! I would have given anything to see that. See? You commanded the room!

      • 80 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 9, 2014 at 14:01

        I know you would!!

        Haha.

        You would have clapped!! I bet. Yeah, I know…I do that all the time, actually.

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 19:45

        *fist pump with Audith* Seriously, that is cool. You’d be perfect at it. Can’t I see a tape of it? Rats.

      • 82 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 9, 2014 at 21:55

        Perfect at what? Being loud and a bit obnoxious? No tape, Duke. None.

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke October 10, 2014 at 14:08

        Taking command and being respected! Rats.

      • 84 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 10, 2014 at 17:34

        Oh, well, I suppose. I try. Not like you do, however.
        I would never get that footage for you…ever! *laughs*

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:24

        Why not? And you don’t know that I do that.

      • 86 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 13, 2014 at 13:43

        Because you would laugh me to scorn…
        I know I don’t, but I feel like you must. Maybe I’m wrong.

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 22:42

        Oh, I would not laugh you to scorn!

      • 88 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 14, 2014 at 02:13

        But why not?

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2014 at 12:12

        Well, because…that would be cool.

      • 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 14, 2014 at 19:20

        My bossiness cool? You know, I guess it can be. Everyone nodded in agreement around me and the room was nearly silent the rest of the time. Reapect. *laughs* My friends whispered…”Aud’s fixin’ to lose it…”

      • 91 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2014 at 20:32

        But she wasn’t! You took control. And gained respect. That’s to be applauded. I would have been scared!

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 15, 2014 at 04:35

        Thanks. You don’t seem like the scared type….

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke October 15, 2014 at 12:12

        I’m generally not…

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 15, 2014 at 15:22

        I thought so!

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke October 15, 2014 at 22:47

        *growls*

      • 96 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 16, 2014 at 00:22

        *grabs a bone and starts throwing it*

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke October 16, 2014 at 12:13

        It’ll bring a dog, I say.

      • 98 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 16, 2014 at 13:55

        *laughing lots* Duke…haha

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke October 16, 2014 at 23:00

        It might, after all.

      • 100 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 17, 2014 at 03:05

        Might what? You have me so confused.

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke October 18, 2014 at 18:58

        *laughs*

      • 102 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 18, 2014 at 19:31

        *snarls*

  9. 103 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 14:33

    How dirty do you want the sock to be? I mean, seven year old little boy, or five year old little girl? Details, sir, you are lacking details.

    It sounds like there is no end of fun in the studio. Gotta watch out for those laughing drivers.

    • 104 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:39

      Well, which is dirtier, Susan? The five-year-old girl’s, or the seven-year-old boy’s? I’m so bad with details.

      I know! I think they were really young. Younger than the professor is old.

      • 105 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 20:47

        Well, it depends on the boy or the girl, actually. It was a trick question.

        Very young, eh?

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:48

        A trick question. Well…there must be an answer, you know. There must be.

        Hey! What are you saying?

      • 107 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 17:45

        not a clue what I’m saying.

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:51

        Now that might be serious.

      • 109 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 20:50

        Everything is serious.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:38

        Except the professor.

      • 111 Susan P October 8, 2014 at 12:48

        Are you serious?

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:48

        Umm…yes?

      • 113 Susan P October 8, 2014 at 12:55

        You don’t know, do you? Come clean.

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:40

        No…what should I know? Tell me, please.

      • 115 Susan P October 9, 2014 at 19:25

        Because Lottie wants to go out to dinner with you.

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 19:47

        And how do you know this?

      • 117 Susan P October 9, 2014 at 20:09

        We been talkin, we been.

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke October 10, 2014 at 14:06

        She likes me?

      • 119 Susan P October 11, 2014 at 00:18

        Oh no. I’m not going in between you and a hot chick.

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:26

        *laughs and bangs head*

      • 121 Susan P October 13, 2014 at 13:45

        What?

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 22:43

        She’s not…hot!

      • 123 Susan P October 13, 2014 at 23:56

        You seem a little distressed. What seems to be the problem?

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2014 at 12:07

        *growls about the professor not having girlfriends*

      • 125 Susan P October 24, 2014 at 16:26

        Well, I guess it depends on whether the professor is hoping for a girl friend or a girlfriend.

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke October 26, 2014 at 19:02

        What’s the difference?

      • 127 Susan P October 26, 2014 at 20:29

        Well, girls can be friends with boys/men in a platonic way. Note that girlfriend has girl and friend close together.

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke October 27, 2014 at 13:10

        Oh…that’s all scary, you know.

      • 129 Susan P October 27, 2014 at 15:46

        Some girls can be very scary.

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 00:27

        Aren’t most? They’re so hard to talk to, you know.

      • 131 Susan P October 28, 2014 at 12:50

        I’m a girl.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke October 28, 2014 at 20:11

        Now that is a good point…but you’re a special one.

      • 133 Susan P October 28, 2014 at 23:02

        *blush*
        Thank you, Professor.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke October 29, 2014 at 13:29

        *bows*

  10. 135 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 14:04

    Definitely no.3! But why restrict it to Mr Fear when so many men could benefit…?

    Picking on my Schwarzy again, I see. Since Mr Magi made it back then I’d say Schwarzy’s directions must have been just fine. *sticks out tongue*

    Was the pavement soft before he landed? Or just… after…

    Ladies?!? Sooo jealous!! Ice lollies are wonderful – but Scottish teeth are probably stronger than American ones.

    Now I realise Mr Hercules was probably just using poetic license but really!! A golden roadway of pancakes to the moon is a lovely image, but…regurgitated ones?? Not so much…

    How terrifying! I bet Lottie was driving. But Nick didn’t tell us the most important thing – was the snack chocolate?

    Yes, it is odd that the Professor uses Mic’s email…

    • 136 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 14:34

      I’ve always thought it was kind of suspicious that they use the same email.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:41

        It’s the studio’s email, dadblameit.

      • 138 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 20:48

        So say you. I think there is an evil pot involved.

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:48

        There could be…but I’m sworn to secrecy!

      • 140 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 17:46

        The Shadow Knows…

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:51

        That’s me, I hear.

      • 142 Susan P October 7, 2014 at 20:50

        Is it now? How is that?

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:38

        Must be the black cloak.

      • 144 Susan P October 8, 2014 at 12:48

        Word has it that you got it from the Count. You know, Count Dracula.

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:49

        I did do him in. And he hates me.

      • 146 Susan P October 8, 2014 at 17:05

        Ooooo – I’d love to hear that story!

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:49

        You would?

      • 148 Susan P October 9, 2014 at 19:26

        But of course I would. I bet some other people might like it, too.

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 19:48

        But…vampires are scary…?

      • 150 Susan P October 9, 2014 at 20:09

        That’s why you are going to kill him, remember?

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke October 10, 2014 at 14:06

        Oh, yes. I struck him down dead.

      • 152 Susan P October 11, 2014 at 00:18

        That’s just telling. You were supposed to show us how you did it!

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:27

        The professor vs Dracula… I guess that would be cool…

      • 154 Susan P October 13, 2014 at 13:45

        I think so.

    • 155 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:37

      Yes, true. Like: Darby, Rafa, Andy, Schwarz, Darth Vader, and Bree.

      The question is, FEF: would you take directions from Schwarz?

      *laughing* After…as it were…

      Is that what it is? Could be that I just worry about it. I slipped with ladies. You know, I once called a group of girls guys? *head falls off*

      Eww! It’s like a Stairway to Heaven. I bet that’s your favorite song.

      No, she wasn’t actually. It’s so embarrassing. He tells the worst stories. Nah, just snack things.

      It is. And it’s your fault!

      • 156 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 21:46

        *gasps* How dare you? I meant annoying men… *gazes innocently around* But yeah – Darth Vader deserves it. You do it – I’ll watch.

        I’d try to persuade him to come along with me… *flutters eyelashes alluringly*

        Euwww!

        Rule 583 – don’t confuse ladies with gentlemen… *sticks head back on with bubblegum*

        Hmm…I think you just insulted me but I’m not quite sure how…

        No chocolate? Huh, no wonder they tried to hit you… (still defending Luscious Lottie, I see… interesting!)

        Uh? Me?!? I didn’t clone you!

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:56

        But, wouldn’t it be dreadful hard to throw anything into Vader’s mouth? *ponders*

        *laughs* That’d work, too, I fear.

        I know…but isn’t ‘guys’ an acceptable term at times? Bubblegum? Yucketh!

        *laughing* Well, it’s a good song kinda…

        I was not defending her! She’s not near as bad as you make her out to be.

        Maybe you did!

      • 158 FictionFan October 7, 2014 at 18:12

        Not if you use a battering ram.

        Yes, sometimes. But calling my Schwarzy a lady is never acceptable. *stern look*

        Hmm…

        See? See?? You’re defending her even when you’re denying defending her!!!

        Now that is very deep… *thinks*

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:53

        Imagine doing that!

        He didn’t care, though. *laughs*

        You just keep being wicked to her. What if she cries?

  11. 160 L. Marie October 6, 2014 at 13:55

    I’m not sure why this is true, but whenever dirty socks are mentioned, I light up. So I have to go with the third proverb.
    As for almost being hit by a car, you need to brandish weapons more often. No one would try to hit you with a car when you brandish a weapon.
    I’ve been on a Ferris wheel before and have never once been attacked by crows. Fats Henry should stop carrying corn around. That’s why they attacked him.

    • 161 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:33

      *laughing* You must like them! I think I know what you mean.

      True! But I don’t think they saw us…until the last moment, I fear. But you’re right: I should have torn my katana out and waved it wildly about!

      *nods* That must be it. Do you like Ferris Wheels?

      • 162 L. Marie October 7, 2014 at 15:51

        I prefer a really daring roller coaster to a Ferris Wheel. But I have nothing against Ferris Wheels.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:48

        I do, too! So scar. Especially when they go so high, you know.

  12. 164 weggieboy October 6, 2014 at 13:51

    Nr, III for sure! The dirtier the sock the better, Mr. Fear, no be vanquished!

    • 165 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:32

      I wonder if it might take two. It might, you know.

  13. 166 Catherine October 6, 2014 at 13:51

    All the proverbs are so good!

    I’m glad to hear that Mr. Magi made it back from that journey safely.

    And Dick Hercules’s poems just keep getting better and better! I like this one even more than the last one.

    • 167 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:32

      Thanks, Catherine! I’m sure Shnod is smiling bigly big.

      Me too. He looked a bit…bruised, I’d say. But still, he made it.

      Me too. It’s so…magical, isn’t it?

      • 168 Catherine October 8, 2014 at 00:54

        You’re welcome! :)

        As long as he was unharmed for the most part, he should be okay. It could have been worse!

        *laughing* It really is! He should keep it up!

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:42

        I hope he does, too. We’ll see. The next one should be about…snails!

      • 170 Catherine October 11, 2014 at 02:00

        Yes! Great idea! There aren’t very many poems about snails as far I know. The world really needs more.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:29

        Yes! Imagine how the snail population would be thrilled, I think.

      • 172 Catherine October 14, 2014 at 04:55

        I would be, if I was one of the snails. I’d be overjoyed!

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2014 at 12:14

        Yes, me too. I’d want the world to know how warrior-like the common snail was. That’s why it wears a shield on its back.

      • 174 Catherine October 17, 2014 at 04:10

        I never thought of it like that! Wow, they really ARE warrior-like. I wish I were a snail…if they moved faster.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke October 18, 2014 at 19:00

        Yes…wouldn’t a shell be fun?

      • 176 Catherine October 18, 2014 at 23:14

        It would be a lot of fun! Except I imagine they’d be a bit heavy.

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke October 20, 2014 at 18:55

        Well…that’s a good point. Maybe that’s why snails are squishy?

      • 178 Catherine October 22, 2014 at 03:24

        *laughs* Maybe…I’ve never thought about that!

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke October 22, 2014 at 19:31

        Professorish thought!

  14. 180 PorterGirl October 6, 2014 at 13:25

    These proverbs are very good. I think I will go with number three, this week. It mentions dirty socks and I have never known a proverb do that before.

    I hope Fats is alright. Being attacked by crows is never much fun – even if it is on a ferris wheel! Thank goodness the pavement was soft.

    The pancake poem is outstanding. Why can’t all poems be like this? I am beginning to think I was wrong about poetry, you know.

    What adventures you have on the way to the store. Did you manage to pick up any snacks?

    • 181 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:31

      Yes, it must be a first. Shnod has an interest of a mind. Good reason to choose it, I say.

      *nods* Crows are wicked, you see.

      *laughs* That’s Mr. Dick Hercules for you. He and Walt are good friends. But not all can write flawless poetry like Dick!

      I know, right? I think they were laughing at me. *roars* Yes…we got a few snacks.

      • 182 PorterGirl October 7, 2014 at 07:38

        It is certainly an unusual mind. Which is no bad thing.

        Wicked and vicious. They remind me of… me!

        Dick is surely a genius. I imagine he and Walt have the most marvellous conversations.

        Laughing at you, Professor? The cads. I would hit them with a stick! (Snacks are good, though)

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:04

        For sure, for sure.

        Nah! You’re sweet!

        I’ll have to ask Walt to write a conversation some time. I think I will. I bet they have speaks over tea and cake.

        The cads indeed! Maybe they were just embarrassed?

      • 184 PorterGirl October 7, 2014 at 13:27

        Haha – me! Sweet! I like it, though, I’ll take sweet.

        You must ask him, Professor. I would like to see that very much. Make sure they mention what cakes they have as well.

        Possibly – bad driving is always an embarrassment. But hit them with a stick, anyway.

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:46

        When you don’t have a baton, I’ll bet!

        I will. I hope they’re nice cakes, you know.

        *nods* On the head or backside!

      • 186 PorterGirl October 8, 2014 at 07:26

        *laughs*

        I bet the cakes will be super.

        Head and backside! It’s the only way these types learn, you know.

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:46

        *laughs* Both it will be, then!

  15. 188 The Lite Rider October 6, 2014 at 13:12

    I bet you know which one I will like — stuffing socks could be a good thing.

    Er, how is Fats Henry? Yikes. I didn’t know that about crows. I’m staying away from Ferris Wheels!

    I like how you called the Salami kids “girls”.

    The poem is .. interesting. The idea of pancakes in space is intriguing, but impractical I think. ;-)

    • 189 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:30

      *laughs* I did know you might like that one!

      Maybe they were just attracted ’cause Henry was eating popcorn? I think he’s fine now…I think.

      *laughs* I got away with it too! Though, Schwarz isn’t one of his kids, thank goodness!

      Oh…come on! We can at least try to make it a reality.

      • 190 The Lite Rider October 6, 2014 at 21:24

        Yes, by all means, do try! ;-) (Btw, the descriptions of the studio concern me — glad you weren’t hit by the car….eek)

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:53

        Okay! Yes…Nick paints a really ugly picture, doesn’t he? So am I!

      • 192 The Lite Rider October 7, 2014 at 13:14

        He does! It’s all doom and gloom! ;-)

      • 193 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:44

        Don’t believe it!

      • 194 The Lite Rider October 7, 2014 at 20:28

        so the studio is not decorated in all black, brown, and gray then? ;-)

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:37

        No! Don’t believe him. You should send him hate mail, I think.

      • 196 The Lite Rider October 8, 2014 at 17:56

        Nah, I’ll have Amelia do it for me!

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:49

        *laughs* And she sure would!

  16. 198 Lady Cheetah October 6, 2014 at 13:07

    I can’t seem to choose between proverbs one and three. The first one is clever and the second one, well, why don’t we put a wet, dirty sock in Mr. Fear’s mouth and see how that goes.

    • 199 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:28

      Do you think he’ll resent it?

  17. 200 walt walker October 6, 2014 at 12:23

    I like the one with the sock. That ought to shut him up.

    Now that should work on the crows, too, I would think. If you have enough socks.

    • 201 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:32

      It should. And maybe have him gagging a bit. I do think he probably deserves it. Do you like Mr. Fear?

      And were a good shot.

      Dick Hercules was in top form, I’d say. Pancakes and a fire…great things.

      • 202 walt walker October 6, 2014 at 13:11

        I don’t like what he represents, but I like him as a person, I think. Maybe. I haven’t met him.

        Was he? Good to hear.

        I do fear the crows. And crow attacks.

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:29

        I think he’s got huge blue eyes, and a long chain. And he’s just a head, that floats around.

        He was. Tip-top.

        Yes…those black beaks…

  18. 204 Jackie October 6, 2014 at 12:04

    I cannot decide between proverbs 2 & 3.

    Did you call Swartz a lady?

    • 205 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:31

      Now I feel bad for 1… *laughs* That was the worst.

      Good noodles! You’re right, I did. Oh dear. What should be done about it?

      • 206 Jackie October 6, 2014 at 13:34

        1 will survive and have a chance another day.

        Did Swartz notice you said it?

      • 207 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:32

        I don’t think he did…which is good. Though, I bet he wouldn’t get too angry.

      • 208 Jackie October 6, 2014 at 20:41

        Swartz? Naw he’d probably laugh at your ignorance! ;-)

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:47

        *hangs head* You’re absolutely right, I fear.

  19. 210 Ann Koplow October 6, 2014 at 11:47

    Thanks for all the news! Now I feel much punchier.

    • 211 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:31

      *bows* My pleasure. Do you like Ferris Wheels?

      • 212 Ann Koplow October 7, 2014 at 01:07

        I am afraid of heights … but I think they are very intriguing.

      • 213 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:02

        Well, wouldn’t you like to be a hawk?

      • 214 Ann Koplow October 7, 2014 at 23:06

        Sure. Where do I sign up?

      • 215 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:41

        Umm….right here. *puts paper on table*
