What follows: Proverbs from V. Shnodgrate. (A PL Poet.)
I. The trick to trickiness is to avoid being tricky.
II. Doubt is not evil; you see, Mr. Doubt is there to help you reaffirm what you believe.
III. Sometimes, Mr. Fear needs a sock in the mouth—preferably, a dirty one.

Moral of the story: Don’t take directions from Mr. Tauptinker.
Ferris Wheels are fun. Have you ever been on a Ferris Wheel? If you have, you may know that once you get up really high, it’s a possibility that the crows will attack you. That happened to Fats Henry. He ended up falling from the ride, and to the soft pavement below.
SANDRA SALAMI: I’d like a popsicle.
SCHWARZ TAUPTINKER: Yeah, me too.
PROFESSOR VJ DUKE: No, you don’t, ladies. I hear popsicles are bad for your teeth. Once your teeth get that cold, they are in danger of breaking off, as it were.
Poems and Stuff
by Dick Hercules (Presented by Walt Walker)
Walt says, “It seems the fellow went camping over the weekend and had some time to ponder. Here’s what came out of it…”
By this campfire
Beneath the stars,
I gaze in wonder.
I swallow another pancake
And wonder some more.
If all the pancakes
Were laid end to end
Would they reach those stars?
Would they make
A soft, golden roadway
To the moon?
Life in the Studio
(MicP Studios: Official Punchy Lands Studio)
by Nicholas Warren
It was a cold day in the deep, dark ravine in which the studio is located. You know I’m kidding about that, right?
But it was cold for October, and VJ and I both came into the studio late. And we worked for about an hour. Then somehow or another, we both decided that we couldn’t work any longer without a snack.
Since we decided this at the same time, we set off to our nearest convenience store.
But as we were walking to the store, this car rode around the corner and came a little close to us. I didn’t think there was anything wrong. But VJ leaned over to me and said, “I think they almost hit us.”
“Nah,” I replied.
Then as the car passed us, I saw both the passenger and the driver, laughing.
I looked at VJ.
He shrugged. “They were embarrassed since they almost hit us.”
“They didn’t almost hit us!”
“Yeah they did. That’s why they were laughing.”
