Professor In Action

I do admit, I’ve been gone a bit, bits, and little bits. Basically, the professor is in a competition that he probably shouldn’t be in (I’m always somewhere I shouldn’t be, you know), and there’s around 3 videos to make before the end of the year. Figuring on a few things to figure on, they might be posted here.

Now, Punchy Land’s news…well, there’s always a lot. This week–in poetry class–we were all taken by this tower picture:

“What do you suppose goes on in that room?” V. Shnodgrate, our poetry teacher, asked.

“I bet,” Schwarz Tauptinker answered, “someone is eating a goose.”

“Nah,” Fats Henry boomed, “someone is sewing on a large wheel with a spike on it.”

“I think we probably shouldn’t talk about what’s going on in that room,” this professor answered.

And that was that.

    That looks rather like the tower belonging to the Lady of Shallot…

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke December 18, 2014 at 20:18

      Who’s she?

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 December 19, 2014 at 01:43

        “On either side of the river lie/Long fields of barley and of rye/That clothe the earth and meet the sky/And through the field the road runs by/Down to Camelot.” Don’t you know the poem? I think Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote it. Maybe I’ll teach it in poetry class! :-D

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke December 19, 2014 at 15:43

        I didn’t know it, but it sounds nice! Sure. That’d be a good once to teach.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 December 20, 2014 at 16:18

        :-) I’ll have to write it up, then. :-D

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2014 at 23:03

        Yes!

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 December 23, 2014 at 14:18

        I’ll try to do it tomorrow. I’m running out of time, I know. :-S

  2. 8 Ivo November 16, 2014 at 11:20

    The shadow does know.

    • 9 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:18

      Yes, and how come he knows everything?

      • 10 Ivo November 17, 2014 at 11:02

        She’s seriously sneaky that way

      • 11 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:14

        We should torch her then.

      • 12 Ivo November 19, 2014 at 00:09

        You do it. The King of the Potato People won’t let me.

      • 13 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:30

        Oh dear! Now who is that?

      • 14 Ivo November 26, 2014 at 21:00

        The dude you don’t want to get on the wrong side of. Perhaps a small sacrifice..? You know, just some fruit, vegetables, herbs, and a parking attendant. (Or a park attendant).

      • 15 Professor VJ Duke November 30, 2014 at 19:41

        With a beard?

      • 16 Ivo November 30, 2014 at 22:00

        That’s right.

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke December 2, 2014 at 19:58

        Goodness! Scary, you know.

  3. 18 Susan P November 15, 2014 at 12:44

    Rooting for you….

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:26

      Aw, thanks, Susan. Over the Pats?

      • 20 Susan P November 15, 2014 at 19:33

        That will work. :)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:17

        *bows* But now I do feel for the pats.

      • 22 Susan P November 17, 2014 at 15:22

        Sorry?

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:17

        The Patriots.

      • 24 Susan P November 18, 2014 at 19:20

        the Patriots are sorry?

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:26

        *maybe grows*

      • 26 Susan P November 24, 2014 at 15:11

        Sorry?

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 22:07

        Why?

      • 28 Susan P November 25, 2014 at 00:36

        That’s what I want to know.

      • 29 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:07

        You must needs pull for the Pats.

      • 30 Susan P November 25, 2014 at 21:02

        I can do that. Are they going to the SuperBowl?

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 13:57

        I hope so. They’re winning big as of now.

      • 32 Susan P November 26, 2014 at 13:58

        Cool beans. I will have to consult with Harry about the prospect.

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 14:11

        Tell him Tom Brady is cool and Julian Edelman is cooler!

      • 34 Susan P November 26, 2014 at 14:19

        Right then. :D

  4. 35 masgautsen November 15, 2014 at 05:22

    Good Luck on the competition :)

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:26

      *bows* It’s quite an interest, you know.

  5. 37 Me, Myself and DIY November 14, 2014 at 12:42

    Keep us posted on the competition so we can cheer you on.

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:25

      Thanks so much! I will.

  6. 39 FictionFan November 14, 2014 at 01:12

    Good luck with the competition – and the tower!

    • 40 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:17

      Thanks, FEF. Will you help me burn the tower to the ground?

      • 41 FictionFan November 16, 2014 at 01:20

        Hmm… *suspects Professor has locked Darby in tower…or Schwarzy!*

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:18

        Both! How did you know? And Rafa.

      • 43 FictionFan November 17, 2014 at 13:49

        Phew! At least my George is still safe…

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:15

        He already betrayed you, remember.

      • 45 FictionFan November 19, 2014 at 20:15

        I’ve forgiven him. I’m pretty sure he’ll dump her just as soon as he meets me…

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:31

        He probably will. Would be the smart thing to do.

  7. 47 icedmocha34 November 14, 2014 at 01:10

    Haha, it looks like the tower from Tangled! Is that Flynn climbing up the side??

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:17

      It could be! Don’t you think, Em, that Flynn would have broken her neck, if he climbed up her hair?

      • 49 icedmocha34 November 21, 2014 at 00:45

        …hmm….possibly. But she swung herself around on it…I don’t really care as long as Flynn never dies!!!! <3

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:31

        Didn’t he almost die?

      • 51 icedmocha34 November 25, 2014 at 22:58

        Yes…. but she healed him!!!!!

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 14:02

        Bet she didn’t mean too!

      • 53 icedmocha34 November 27, 2014 at 01:59

        WHAT?!?

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke November 30, 2014 at 19:49

        Well…you must admit, it’s at least a possibility.

  8. 55 walt walker November 14, 2014 at 00:34

    I would not walk anywhere near that tower … I’m quite certain there are archers in it waiting to shoot flaming arrows at pedestrians.

    Good luck with the competition! Will we be privy to more details or is it quite hush hush?

    • 56 Alastair Savage November 14, 2014 at 08:19

      I hope they don’t miss because that tower looks like it’s made of wood. You wouldn’t be popular with the sergeant if you shot accidentally shot an arrow in the wall and burnt the whole thing down.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:24

        *laughing lots* That would be quite interesting. Just think, if Robin Hood is in the woods, he might do the trick.

    • 58 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:17

      *gulp* Really? Would they shoot a man in a white suit?

      Would you like more details?

      • 59 walt walker November 15, 2014 at 16:24

        They might not you remove your jacket and hold it up in surrender, but I wouldn’t count on it.

        Of course!

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:27

        That’s true: I do look like a walking surrender. That can’t be good overall, you know.

        Well, then, okay! I will do a post about it soon…

  9. 61 Simply Skeptical November 13, 2014 at 23:12

    Missed you yesterday Sir! Repunzul (spelling?) May let down her long hair from the tower. Although, it does seem like it may be haunted. Once again the mysteries of the Prof. A competiton you say. For what are you competing? Is it a damsal (spelling?) Laughing…….

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:14

      Humph noodles! Of course, I’m competing for frogs… R might let down her hair. But imagine, wouldn’t it break her neck?

  10. 63 LadyPinkRose November 13, 2014 at 23:04

    Where there is a tower there is a dungeon. With dragons! And snakes! And horrible horrible RATS. Please don’t go down there, Professor. Concerned, LadyP

    • 64 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:11

      But I like rats! And aren’t I a type of dragon?

      • 65 LadyPinkRose November 13, 2014 at 23:43

        NO NO NO! You are a shark! Why are you SO confused? And NO ONE in their right mind, sorry, would like rats. Gee whizzers! What is wrong with you?

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:16

        Have you ever met a rat? Besides, the professor of course.

      • 67 LadyPinkRose November 15, 2014 at 18:02

        Grrrr….. You are a shark!

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:15

        A heartless one.

  11. 69 Susan P November 13, 2014 at 22:04

    Don’t go down in the cellar…I learned that on horror stories.

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:11

      Good point. Will I be down there?

      • 71 Susan P November 13, 2014 at 23:27

        Worse. Much, much worse.

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:16

        The shadow?

      • 73 Susan P November 15, 2014 at 19:32

        The Shadow Knows…

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:17

        That voice is scarier than the shadow.

      • 75 Susan P November 17, 2014 at 15:22

        I know, right? My dad used to listen to it on the radio.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:17

        *shivers* Well, he was a warrior then!

      • 77 Susan P November 18, 2014 at 19:20

        Mostly he was just crazy.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:27

        So am I.

      • 79 Susan P November 24, 2014 at 15:11

        Well yeah. That’s a given. All of the best people are you know.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 22:07

        What about Stalin?

      • 81 Susan P November 25, 2014 at 00:36

        Stalin was not one of those people.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:07

        But he must’ve been insane!

      • 83 Susan P November 25, 2014 at 21:03

        Most likely he was. However, we all have a bit of madness in us, do we not?

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 13:57

        Except the professor! Lady is going to give me a halo soon.

      • 85 Susan P November 26, 2014 at 14:13

        Isn’t Halo a game?

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 20:25

        It is?

      • 87 Susan P November 26, 2014 at 20:39

        I heard tell it were.

  12. 88 The Lite Rider November 13, 2014 at 21:59

    I’m with the professor on the the room in the tower…..

    As for the videos, good luck and have fun! :) :) Competitions are always fun!

    • 89 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:10

      Yes! *shudders* One can only imagine.

      They are! And scary, though!

  13. 90 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 13, 2014 at 21:49

    Looks to me like the tower is some sort of reading room, for sure. I wouldn’t use it for much else. Wonder if it has a bathroom, if I’m going up I’m staying awhile… the tower has spiked my interests.

    You are a fierce competitor, I bet. Best of luck, of course.

    • 91 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:10

      Maybe you’ll find a bookshelf…and behind there…maybe there’s…a vampire? You better not go up alone.

      I’m not sure. I don’t do it often. *shivers*

      • 92 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 14, 2014 at 05:04

        Ooo, a bookshelf? A vampire….You’re being a brat! *laughing a lot* Come with me, Darling. Bring the katana, too.

        All the more reason to do it and well. *coaches you through*

      • 93 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:23

        *laughs* The professor maybe is a brat every other day. Okay… *comes along*

        You think I should do it?

      • 94 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 17, 2014 at 03:36

        Most days, I think. You should practice your sword fighting before we get up there, I’d say. *pushes you ahead of me*

        Of course!! Yes! Would you think anything different?! For shame!

      • 95 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:14

        *probably falls off the cliff*

        Well, then…oh dear, you know.

      • 96 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 18, 2014 at 21:06

        *waves good-bye*

      • 97 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:29

        *waves as he falls*

      • 98 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 24, 2014 at 20:52

        *wonders if his Spidy hands will work*

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 22:14

        That’s right! I am Spiderman. Forgot about it.

      • 100 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 25, 2014 at 02:48

        You’re using them then?….

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:13

        Yes, I should, huh?

      • 102 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 26, 2014 at 06:05

        Should probably hurry, Duke

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 14:09

        *CRASH*

      • 104 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 26, 2014 at 16:51

        *starts covering him with dirt* Good knowing you, Duke. Let the sad poetry begin.

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke November 26, 2014 at 20:35

        *spits the dirt out*

      • 106 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister November 26, 2014 at 22:27

        *digs quicker*

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke November 30, 2014 at 19:46

        I think you want me dead.

      • 108 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 1, 2014 at 04:16

        No, I want you just as you are, Duke.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke December 2, 2014 at 20:00

        Heartless…

      • 110 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 3, 2014 at 03:54

        ….sigh…. I guess.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke December 3, 2014 at 15:44

        *tries not to laugh*

      • 112 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 3, 2014 at 22:05

        *tries not to cry*

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke December 4, 2014 at 19:04

        Oh dear. *hands Audith a capo*

      • 114 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 5, 2014 at 02:47

        I can’t use this…plus twill make that sad music, right? Play some for me, Duketh. *pleading eyes*

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke December 6, 2014 at 20:03

        But I can’t play!

      • 116 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 7, 2014 at 04:50

        Fine.

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke December 8, 2014 at 14:35

        *laughing* Can’t just play a capo, I mean.

      • 118 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 8, 2014 at 20:00

        *sparkles* But why not?

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke December 8, 2014 at 21:15

        One must use it on a guitar first.

      • 120 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 9, 2014 at 02:56

        Isn’t that what I requested? ?

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke December 9, 2014 at 21:32

        Oh…is it?

      • 122 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister December 9, 2014 at 21:51

        *annoyed glance*

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke December 10, 2014 at 15:04

        *bows*

  14. 124 L. Marie November 13, 2014 at 21:12

    Someone is spinning on a spinning wheel in that room.
    Good luck in your competition!

    • 125 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:10

      Thank you! The professor, do you think?

      • 126 L. Marie November 14, 2014 at 20:23

        Of course!

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:26

        But it’s a lady’s job!

  15. 128 Debbie November 13, 2014 at 20:32

    Good luck with the competition, Professor! As for that room, well, perhaps NOTHING is going on inside it. Perhaps it’s just a dull and dusty storage space!

    • 129 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:09

      That’s true. Maybe a ghost then?

  16. 130 Julie Harris November 13, 2014 at 19:54

    Something to ponder, for sure!

    • 131 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:09

      Oh yes, sure is.

  17. 132 xoxosanaz90210 November 13, 2014 at 18:57

    Or maybe Rapuzel is getting a hair cut in that room? Or the evil witch could be repairing her spindle?

    • 133 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:09

      Oh! Was Rapunzel bad, do you know?

      • 134 xoxosanaz90210 November 13, 2014 at 23:10

        I don’t think she was.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:11

        Why didn’t she ever climb down then?

      • 136 xoxosanaz90210 November 14, 2014 at 00:09

        The tower was way too tall. She probably didn’t exercise enough and didn’t want to risk falling.

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:16

        You mean, she didn’t do any pushups?

      • 138 xoxosanaz90210 November 15, 2014 at 16:42

        Unfortunately, no exercise for her

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:15

        Oh dear. Was she fat, then?

      • 140 xoxosanaz90210 November 17, 2014 at 05:53

        Nope. Anorexic.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:14

        Poor girl. We should save her, you know.

  18. 142 Angeline M November 13, 2014 at 17:20

    I think the professor is very wise in his thinks on this. We might be sorry if we knew what was going on in there.
    Best of luck in your competition even though you shouldn’t be there. Always do your best to get you through the test.

    • 143 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:09

      Now that is a great saying. Yes, perhaps there’s a frog eating toads in there?

  19. 144 PorterGirl November 13, 2014 at 17:19

    A competition?! How exciting! Of course, the Professor should be victorious or I shall come forth with spankings and other general violence. Best of luck, dear boy.

    I think you are right that the goings-on in that room should not be talked about. Maybe DS is in there! With his new daughter! Playing chess.

      Thank you! It’s not for some time yet. Must prepare. Rats. Yes…and your baton, you know.

      Aha! An idea. Teaching her about patience. Maybe they have to keep playing (without eating) until she wins? Then they can get out.

        Playing without eating – now there is a challenge! That sounds fabulous. I am glad I am not in the room, though. I would end up eating all the pieces if I got too hungry.

        And that might DS just a bit cranky!

    Katana storage of course!

    • 149 Professor VJ Duke November 13, 2014 at 23:07

      Aha! Quite right. How many do you suppose you can fit up there?

      • 150 InfiniteZip November 14, 2014 at 10:22

        Lots-n-lots…I don’t have that many fingers and toes to count with….

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke November 15, 2014 at 16:25

        How about hair strands?

      • 152 InfiniteZip November 15, 2014 at 17:01

        Oh yes, I have lots of those…although some are grey…does that matter?

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke November 16, 2014 at 23:15

        Gray hair is better! It’s a crown of splendor, you know.

      • 154 InfiniteZip November 17, 2014 at 10:38

        Does that make me splendorful? Oooh…I think I like that idea.

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke November 18, 2014 at 17:14

        Now that is a rather cool word, Zippy!

      • 156 InfiniteZip November 18, 2014 at 19:37

        You can use it if you’d like….turn on the weather channel and see the snow a few miles away. Four feet and counting….fun in winter wonderland…maybe some sledding?

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 13:27

        And snow balls?

      • 158 InfiniteZip November 24, 2014 at 16:38

        Ummmm yeah…you mean the icy ones, right?

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke November 24, 2014 at 22:11

        Are there other ones?

      • 160 InfiniteZip November 25, 2014 at 00:20

        I’ve heard tales…..but a lady doesn’t speak of such things….except on facebook maybe.

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:06

        *laughs* Is it okay to be wicked on FB?

      • 162 InfiniteZip November 25, 2014 at 14:07

        I have my moments……but don’t tell…..

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke November 25, 2014 at 14:17

        I won’t! It’ll be a secret, promise.


Say something...anything...O Punchy Family!
