Donald Trump, the Patriots, and Happy 2016

professor speaks

And now the professor will have speaks.

First off, happy new year everyone!

It’s 2016, which doesn’t look at all impressive, you must admit.

See–and I’m sure you agree–2014 looked more impressive.

Don’t you think so?


I’m not sure why either. But there it is.

And now this professor has a prediction to make.

Prediction: By 2116, I will own a hoverboard.

Now how neatio is that?


I hope to get the red model, though.

So, what else should we have speaks about?

Oh yes!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It’s made around $1.5 billion so far. Some say it will be the highest grossing movie of all time, moving ahead of both Avatar (2009) and Titanic (1997). (They are #1 & #2 on the list as of now, see.)


If that happened, it would be an interest. But only for a time and a bit of a time.

This professor hasn’t seen Avatar, Titanic, or Star Wars, can you believe.

But I have seen Lone Survivor (2013), starring Mark Wahlberg, which is pretty awesome.


Should we have speaks about the Patriots? Nah, I can’t stand it, I tell you.


Losing their last two games! I can’t stand it, I say! *rampages for about two months*

However, it’s also quite interesting that Mr. Donald Trump predicted that the New England Patriots would win Super Bowl 50.


Not that anyone cares.

After all, what does Donald Trump know about football? And in particular, the Pats?

At first glance, one might say nothing, like this professor did.

But, consider the following facts: Donald Trump is Tom Brady’s friend, who is Bill Belichick’s friend, who is Clint Eastwood’s friend, who made the film American Sniper (2014), which tells the story about Chris Kyle, who was good friends with Marcus Luttrell, who was portrayed in the film Lone Survivor (2013) by Mark Wahlberg, who is a huge Patriots fan.

Go Patriots.

    It seems Donald Trump is not very good at making predictions… I wonder if he wore one of those turbans and gazed into a crystal ball? Clint Eastwood on the other hand could be much better at it. With the intensity of his gaze, he could probably see into the future ;)

    Happy New Year, Professor. When I popped over, I saw that you had three posts up. Woot.
    I saw Star Wars before Christmas and plan to see it again with a friend tonight. I’m happy for its success.

  3. 9 Tosha Michelle January 6, 2016 at 17:28

    The last paragraph made the whole post!

  4. 21 Simply Skeptical January 6, 2016 at 12:06

    HAPPY NEW YEAR PROFESSOR AND ALL PUNCHY LOYALS!! I’m afraid, very afraid, since I did follow that last paragraph, eeks. A doctor I shall go…..

  5. 23 bardictale January 5, 2016 at 22:48

    Space battles are cool. I warmly suggest you see at least one good one, before you get your hover board- it will give you ideas!

  6. 41 Lady Dunamis January 5, 2016 at 22:41

    Hover board? Only PVJ….😛

    As for Star Wars I have heard enough of chewbacka commentaries from the people on the other side of the cubicle. I probably will watch it in 2020.

  7. 47 Louis from VA January 5, 2016 at 21:57

    Re: the last paragraph, :0 It’s a conspiracy, obviously.
    And hey, I’ll root for the Patriots within reason. Though, I’m quite happy with how the Redskins are doing this year. XD
    You really must see Episode VII you know…

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke January 6, 2016 at 13:09

      Hey man! Good to see you. Definitely a conspiracy, I say, too.

      Nice! Another Pats fan. Welcome to the club, I say. I like the Redskins, too. They’re rather spicy.

      Okay, tell me…is the Sith super cool?

      • 49 Louis from VA January 7, 2016 at 02:46

        Good to see you too! Have I missed a ton? Like, grand revolutions or general anarchy or people forgetting to eat lunch and stuff like that?
        Spicy? XD I’ve never heard them described as that, but I’ll take it. (Makes me think of this one Bad Lip Reading video where it looks like their quarterback is saying “Hot soup! Where they got it?”)
        Eh. He’s alright. He has anger issues and he’s a little emo. BB8 rocks though. :D

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2016 at 14:49

        *laughs* Definitely general anarchy, but that’s everyday life in TPL. Missing the lunches sounds horrid, I must admit.

        I love that video!!! I laugh so hard. I think Tom Brady is told he has enough money to buy a pregnant cow. Good times.

        But, see, I bet he’d kill BB8. Is that the robot thingy?

      • 51 Louis from VA January 14, 2016 at 14:03

        XD I must have missed that bit. Yep, that’s the robot thingy. Although, he wanted it alive. But he’d probably kill it after he got what he wanted. He has a horrible habit of smashing computer-like things with his light saber.

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke January 15, 2016 at 13:18

        Light saber! I need one of those, the sudden.

  8. 53 John W. Howell January 5, 2016 at 21:25

    Happy New Year. Go Steelers.

  9. 67 erinkenobi2893 January 5, 2016 at 20:03

    Happy 2016! (you’re right, it does not look very impressive… I shall have to have speaks with the Doctor about this problem.)
    Pah! Donald Trump does not know anything! If the Patriots win it will be in despite of his word, not because of it! OBI-WAN KENOBI FOR PRESIDENT 2016!!! :-P
    (Or, would you rather vote Romana? because she’s the other GOOD option ;-P)

  10. 80 Nancy Loderick January 5, 2016 at 18:34

    Well Professor,

    You have spoken! And covered a lot of subjects! Where to begin?

    Let’s start with the hover board. Love the hot pink color! I can just see you “hovering” on that thing. Please be careful though; I’ve read they can spontaneously combust.

    Now, I can’t believe that you mentioned Donald Trump and the Patriots in the same blog post. I suppose with the Patriots losing their past few games they deserve that.

    Anyway, a very happy and healthy 2016 to you!


    • 81 Professor VJ Duke January 5, 2016 at 19:51

      *laughs* I speak like a gushing olive oil.

      Spontaneously combust? *is scared* Hm. I think I need a red one, tho. Don’t you suppose?

      The Pats will personally get a kick in the pants from me real soon. Remember to pull for the Pats along with Mr. Ken!

      To you as well!

  11. 82 E. January 5, 2016 at 18:04

    Welcome back and happy 2016! It might not be as shiny as 2014, but I think there’s some glimmer and glitter if you look at it in the right light.

    Just don’t look at the part labeled “Trump” cause that’s dark and slimy and needs to be washed off.

  12. 86 desertdweller29 January 5, 2016 at 17:39

    Welcome back, Professor! I can’t believe you haven’t seen the new Star Wars. I promise you it’s awesome. Maybe you could hover there?

  13. 90 Jackie January 5, 2016 at 16:52

    Happy New Year, Professor! I hope 2016 brings you and yours all sorts of wonderful things. :-)

  14. 98 Debbie January 5, 2016 at 16:36

    Welcome back, Professor! A Hoverboard, huh? Well, yes, I suppose that might be very cool. I don’t particularly want one, though it might be fun to take Dallas on a walkie if I were hovering!! As for the movies, Domer and I saw the new Star Wars movie twice — it was THAT GOOD! And I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen Titanic. Somehow, I missed Avatar, but I think Domer saw it. Professor, you really must get out more, you know! I understand the Pats’ problems are caused by injuries. Nothing like giving their fans something to worry about before the playoffs!

    • 99 Professor VJ Duke January 5, 2016 at 19:48

      Twice!!!! Wow. Did the chap with the red lightsaber win, do you know? And you’re fan of the titanic. What a wonder. How about Lone Survivor?

      *laughs* I’m stuck in my cell all day, after all. And you must pull for the Pats now, Debbie.

  15. 100 Haylee January 5, 2016 at 16:23

    I can’t belieeeeeeve you’ve not yet seen Star Wars – you’ve been away for ages. Anyone would think you had a life outside of this blogosphere / high grossing sci-fi films of awesomeness! ;)
    Happy new year sir, hope the hiatus was grand!

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke January 5, 2016 at 19:48

      I know…well, that’s because you said there’s no sith in it! *complains*

      Good to be back! How were you holidays, Haylee?

      • 102 Haylee January 5, 2016 at 20:40

        Splendid thanks, relatively quiet and low key which was nice for once. Plus, I got Game of Thrones Monopoly which I’m sure you don’t care about (I believe you said that it’s still on an unwatched entertainment list) but for this geeky fan girl, being able to own King’s Landing for the price of a dragon egg is marvellous! :)

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke January 6, 2016 at 13:08

        *laughing* Did you get that? Capital. I know you love GoT. Does it have any dragons on it? I like the dragon part. It’s true: I haven’t watched one episode of GoT!

      • 104 Haylee January 6, 2016 at 15:35

        I did – parents’ surprise offering. Much better than socks! No dragons on it, but one of the pieces is a dragon egg so still cool. Capital… As in wonderful/awesome? That will be added to my vocabulary for the foreseeable future :)

      • 105 Professor VJ Duke January 6, 2016 at 22:40

        An egg! I wonder what will hatch out of it. You know, it might not be a dragon. Might be a guppy. Yes! Capital as in wonderful/awesome. You must use it. It’s so fun.

      • 106 Haylee January 6, 2016 at 23:20

        The egg is the size of a thimble so I hope it is a dragon, it would be the dinkiest in the world! 🐉 I will! I’m going to convert others to capitalism too! I think…

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke January 7, 2016 at 14:39

        That’s the spirit, I say. Well, if it does hatch, please dye it red. All dragons should be red.

  16. 108 FictionFan January 5, 2016 at 16:04

    Oh dear! I fear I’ve just gone off Tom Brady. One may judge a man by the company he keeps…

    Perhpas if the Pats all had hoverboards they’d win more often. I hope they come in different sizes though – poor old Mr Wilfork might need one with added hover…

    • 109 Professor VJ Duke January 5, 2016 at 19:47

      He’s also a fan of Bill Clinton. TB stays very unpolitical about the whole thing. Now if only he can get back to the super bowl… *puts on Pat hat*

      They only lost four games this year! Did you know, the Pats released him? He’s no longer a Patriot! *Cries*

      • 110 FictionFan January 5, 2016 at 23:00

        I don’t see how anyone could look at Trump’s hairdo and stay unpolitical – I think there should be protest marches!

        Oh no! You mean he’s a Traitor now?? Or maybe just a Rebel.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke January 6, 2016 at 13:11

        *laughs and tries not to* You know, it’s quite hilarious how you feel towards Trump… But I shan’t laugh!

        He’s a Houston Texan! Bill got rid of him. *cries more*

  17. 112 Susan P January 5, 2016 at 15:52

    Wow! I really needed that.

  18. 134 Heartafire January 5, 2016 at 14:47

    It’s all prefectly clear now. I have not seen the new Star Wars, actually I have only seen the first two Star War movies as I am not into Science Fiction, though I did like “Alien”. I watched Avatar on Net Flix and thought the special effects were amazing, even more fascinating than the Donald’s hairdo. Happy New Year professor, wishing you good health and much happiness!

  19. 147 Esme upon the Cloud January 5, 2016 at 14:44

    You were born to hover sir. No doubt about it. May your 2016 be a joyful one filled with many cherry suckers Professor.

    Trump is an arse

    Titanic, that’s the one where the boat sinks, I think. I hope I didn’t just ruin it for everyone. Not like that’s not the only thinking sinking around here. The nation is too you know, with Trump on the bow going “I’m king of the world!” And the Patriots. Although not like the Cowboys. That ship can’t be saved. Given time, everything will sink.

    Happy New Year!

    • 162 Professor VJ Duke January 5, 2016 at 19:45

      Haha. Sinks and sinks bad. But then again, I’m thinking they should remake the movie. A version when the boat doesn’t sink. It’s maybe lands on the reef or something.

      Are you a Cowboys fan, Mr. Walker?

      • 163 walt walker January 5, 2016 at 22:35

        A remake of Titanic? But the boat is at the bottom now. How can they remake it?

        I was a Cowboys fan. They’ve done everything they can to get rid of me, though, and it’s working.

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke January 6, 2016 at 13:10

        You and I must go on an expedition and bring it up. Imagine the gold we might find.

        *laughing lots and lots* But you do have a valid excuse. No Romio.

  21. 165 PorterGirl January 5, 2016 at 13:01

    I was having a marvellous time reading along until the last paragraph confused me entirely *laughs* My brain is only very small, after all. My nephew has a hoverboard, it is very cool indeed – but not so great for indoor use.
    Happ New Year, Professor! It’s good to have you and TPL back once more!

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