Fighting & Following

If a fight is fought fairly, it’s unfair for someone. 

V. Shnodgrate, Renowned PL Poet

So, the professor was sitting in a tavern in medieval England.

It looked like this, see:

1387a50aa09f8271fc0e2cc3ac872f6c

And I was katana-less.

King Arthur had stolen it from me, see.

It was a thing.

And to make matter worse, this professor had left his katana (I may or may not have a whole weapon collection, see) at home.

Rats and a Heifer. Double-dadblameit. And any other cuss word you want to say would be applicable.

I stood from the table and then it dawned on me.

The professor didn’t have anything to pay with.

Oh well and some.

So, I took off one of my most prized possessions: A wristband that had these words printed on it:

Made in China with Love.

And I dropped that on the table.

I had overpaid, see.

Now, this professor was just about to leave when I turned and was quite shocked, the sudden.

Standing in front of me was that woman I had sorta banged into. Her hair was free from its scarf this time. It was an odd blue-gray color. But she wasn’t old. Odd, see. Behind her, were four burly looking chaps.

One of them stepped forward.

“Hey,” he said.

I could tell he was a beetle by how he spoke.

So, beetles tend to be rather dull and slow, see. The frog is a depiction of the professor. If it came to a fight, I'd beat a beetle any day.

“What?!” I said, as meanly as I could. And it sorta came out as a hoarse croak. I was very proud of myself, the sudden. #VeryProud

“Our sister,” he continued savagely, pointing at the woman–she had a funny looking mark on her face from when she banged into me–,“says you assaulted her on the street.”

The other three beetles with him all nodded and tried to look menacingly menacing.

Epic fail. #Epic

The professor sighed. “I gotta go, see.”

“Yeah, you do,” he said. “Out on the street. I’m gonna beat you good. Real good.”

“Pay up, first,” I said.

“I’ll pay later!”

“You won’t be able to later,” I replied calmly.

He tilted his head, mocking me, I’d say. “You think?”

“All the time,” this professor replied. “You should try it.”

I admit now, freely, I was purposely walking this beetle though a favorite movie conversation of mine. I admit it freely.

article-2247610-1680570B000005DC-722_634x355

Double tickets of popcorn to who can name the movie!

So we stepped out onto the street.

The head beetle started to crack his fingers. “This is going to hurt.”

“I know,” I replied, “but you’ll probably live.”

It was rather late at night, so the town was mostly empty. Not much electricity in medieval England, don’t you know. The road was also dusty.

Then the fellow was about to swing, but I stopped him.

“Last chance to walk out,” I said.

“It’s four against one,” he replied. “We’ll win.”

“Nah, it’s–“

But he didn’t wait. I was going to say I never fight fair, but he swung.

This professor ducked the blow faster than a bullet comes spinning out of a barrel. My left hand whipped into his mid-section.

He doubled over, then my Mr. Knee came up and gave him a sharp smack in the face.

The beetle fell like an oak. An oak tree, mind.

The three other fellows charged. And out came my steel baton. This professor carries it everywhere. About 2 feet long, it is.

A few sharp cracks and screams later, it was over.

The woman just stood there. Glaring.

“If I had my sword, I’d kill you!” she hissed.

“If I had my katana, I’d scalp you,” I replied.

Then this professor left, turning a corner quickly. Time to disappear.

I walked on for a bit, heard something, and then looked behind me.

That’s when I noticed I was being followed.

    Oh dear Professor,

    It sounds as though you got yourself into quite a pickle now.

    It is too bad you didn’t have your katana with you. Although that might have gotten you into even more trouble, or even landed you in jail!

    Nancy

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:47

      Ooo, that’s a good point. But still, it’s like…my version of a purse see! I feel incomplete without it. Even half the man I normally am.

      • 3 Nancy Loderick February 23, 2016 at 19:15

        Well Professor,

        Your purse would definitely be very professorish. It may even hold a few books and katana!

        Nancy

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:28

        It would! And maybe a gun and a stash of stolen cash.

  2. 5 PorterGirl February 22, 2016 at 08:59

    Is it the Jack Reacher movie? Either that, or it’s a scene from that Lego one *laughs* The woman’s hair sounds rather fabulous, please do scalp her and let me make the hair into a wig. I should wear it at weekends. Now I do love a good fight and this one was super. Lucky you had the baton, a very sensible thing to have about one’s person.

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:43

      It is! You get…a C+. Now, you want that hair? *laughs* I might wear it, too, if I get it. After all, it’s not everyday you see such an epic color.

      • 7 PorterGirl February 22, 2016 at 14:50

        Quite right! I should very much like to see you wear it, that would be an interest. You could wear it on stage with Alice Cooper.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:40

        *laughs* Alice might throw me off stage if I did that. Then again, I’d bite his face off if he did.

      • 9 PorterGirl February 23, 2016 at 13:56

        Woah! the sudden, this is a show I simply cannot miss! Where do I get tickets?!

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:20

        It’d be a brutal show!! I think I’d use a seven string guitar too. Tickets are $5 each.

      • 11 PorterGirl February 24, 2016 at 16:08

        I would!! Seven strings, a wonder. My mind is a-boggle at it all. I will take two tickets. Terry wants to come too.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:29

        He can come and be backstage, I think! I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing, you know, till they got a hold of me.

      • 13 PorterGirl February 25, 2016 at 15:17

        The innate sweetness within you still shines through, Professor. But I must admit, you become more of a beast by the day. How marvellous.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:31

        Hmm. I want to believe you. But, remember, I did fight with Hector. I’d have to rather cranky and mean.

      • 15 PorterGirl February 26, 2016 at 09:06

        I think it depends on the day of whether you are sweet or vicious. Sometimes you are viciously sweet, others you are sweetly vicious!

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:25

        Hmm…both of those are actually great options, you know. I dig. I dig.

      • 17 PorterGirl February 26, 2016 at 21:11

        I am full of excellent options. Well, two, at least *laughs*

  3. 18 Sonya Solomonovich February 21, 2016 at 22:01

    Is it that movie with Mark Whalberg in it where they all drive mini coopers? Just a wild guess, since one or both of those guys look like Mark Whalberg.

    I must say, professor, you look very jolly as a frog.

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:42

      It’s Jack Reacher! Bet you’ve seen it. or know if it.

      And vicious, too, huh? I mean, I beat a beetle, after all.

      • 20 Sonya Solomonovich February 24, 2016 at 23:37

        Ah, yes heard of it. Is it a good film?
        Well, you might be feeling vicious on the inside but it doesn’t show in this photo :)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:43

        Oh yes, you’d love it. Plenty of action and adventure and whatnot. It’s awesome. Oh dear. Did I pick the wrong photo? dadblameit.

      • 22 Sonya Solomonovich February 29, 2016 at 16:46

        I will check out Jack Reacher since it has professorish endorsement!

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 02:01

        *laughs* I wanna be J. Reacher!!

      • 24 Sonya Solomonovich March 1, 2016 at 14:15

        Oh good, it’s on Netflix. I will soon find out why you want to be him….

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke March 2, 2016 at 19:15

        *starts doing all sorts of cool moves*

      • 26 Sonya Solomonovich March 3, 2016 at 13:58

        Lol. Go professor!

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:50

        *is proud*

  4. 28 Susan P February 21, 2016 at 20:20

    And what do you hope for with all of this?

    • 29 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:40

      The Jeweled Katana, of course. Or you could just give it to me.

      • 30 Susan P February 22, 2016 at 14:41

        Don’t have a katana. I have George.

      • 31 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:44

        Even George might run from a katana!

      • 32 Susan P February 22, 2016 at 14:47

        You have never seen George in action.

      • 33 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:38

        That’s true. Maybe he’s like the Deadpool for cats. Cool.

      • 34 Susan P February 23, 2016 at 14:15

        George did not like that term.

      • 35 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:21

        Is he cranky with me now?

      • 36 Susan P February 24, 2016 at 14:24

        He seems all right. We had a snugly party before bed time last night.

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:33

        Where does he sleep?

      • 38 Susan P February 24, 2016 at 16:22

        Wherever he wants. The weather has him a little nervous.

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:32

        How is the weather down there?

      • 40 Susan P February 25, 2016 at 14:50

        Pretty cold for Florida. Mostly he wants outside. I have to snuggle him and tell him I need him indoors. If he gets really anxious he chews his paw pads.

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:27

        Give him his little soccer ball. That’ll fetch him.

      • 42 Susan P February 26, 2016 at 14:50

        His idea is the Daytona 500

      • 43 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:29

        Whoa. He thinks big there.

      • 44 Susan P February 29, 2016 at 14:37

        Why not?

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 01:52

        I agree. Why not? One should.

      • 46 Susan P February 25, 2016 at 14:51

        And Mikki

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:28

        Is Mikki green?

      • 48 Susan P February 26, 2016 at 15:25

        Mikki is a large “fancy” cocktiel.That means that he has several colors on his feather sincluding . They come in different colors and Mikki is yellow and pearl-gray. From his crown to his claws he measures about 15 inches. That is lard for those birds. He gives me “kissie” with loud smacking sounds. They are incredibly intelligent. If someone calls you a “bird brain” consider it a compliment. He has several phrases and he entertains me with his various phrases. I taught him some phrases when he was just hatched and he learned them (and one song: My Jesus I love thee…) and he has made up on himself variations of them.

        If someone is eating toast, he will holler until someone gives him toast.

        He is also our alarm. If someone he does not know comes up the path he will shriek until someone looks out of doors.

      • 49 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:32

        *laughs* He sounds like a perfect little chap! I already like him. He’s an alarm, he can sing, and he’s a cool color. That is capital.

      • 50 Susan P February 29, 2016 at 14:39

        He also gets antsy while waiting

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 01:53

        Does he flap about?

      • 52 Susan P March 1, 2016 at 02:30

        That is only where it starts.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke March 2, 2016 at 19:06

        Oh boy.

  5. 54 John W. Howell February 20, 2016 at 21:47

    One thing not to do is turn around.

    • 55 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:40

      Even if I run fast?

      • 56 John W. Howell February 22, 2016 at 17:38

        Well okay. You better be quick though.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:44

        I’ll put on my red sneakers.

      • 58 John W. Howell February 23, 2016 at 13:59

        With little jet packs.

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:21

        Imagine! No more airports for me.

      • 60 John W. Howell February 24, 2016 at 14:30

        Yes. Your backyard is a launching point.

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:34

        Security wouldn’t be as annoying either. Just one pat down. That’s it.

      • 62 John W. Howell February 24, 2016 at 16:42

        What kind of pat down would that be?

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:33

        a 2 second one, since I’d be doing it. Just to make sure I put everything I wanted in my pockets, see.

      • 64 John W. Howell February 25, 2016 at 19:56

        *laughs*

  6. 65 Jackie February 20, 2016 at 18:51

    If a fight is fought fairly then there is no such thing as unfair. Only a sore loser would think it was unfair to lose to someone who won things fair and square.

    • 66 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:40

      Aha! Now that’s the thing. I think they should disqualify sore losers. Or throw some soup on them. But then, that’d be wasting soup. Ah, what to do with them.

      • 67 Jackie February 22, 2016 at 14:44

        Ignore them! That’s what I’d do.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:37

        Just look the other way. I like it.

      • 69 Jackie February 23, 2016 at 13:47

        Yes, exactly! People like that hate to be ignored so it’s the perfect revenge!

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:50

        Haha. SO tempting to throw a rock, tho, too, you must admit.

      • 71 Jackie February 23, 2016 at 13:54

        Yes it is but it’s much more rewarding to ignore. If you throw a rock then the other guy can claim you’re a sore loser too. See what I mean?

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:18

        What if you jump him and choke him out?

      • 73 Jackie February 24, 2016 at 14:24

        I suppose you could deal with it that way but the bottom line is ignoring is best. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it!

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:33

        Oh, dadblameit! Okay, I’ll give it a go. It’s just hard for me, since I’m such a brutal warrior.

      • 75 Jackie February 24, 2016 at 14:42

        I understand but it’s important to not only be good at fighting but to be wise too. A wise warrior knows when to hold them and when to fold them.

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:23

        Oh gee. Dadblameit. Hmm, that does make sense. You’re quite right, the sudden. The professor is a dull warrior.

      • 77 Jackie February 25, 2016 at 14:34

        You are not dull! If you were dull would anyone come to your blog? Hmmm??? I think not! But they do so you can’t be dull! HA!

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:45

        Oh boy. Looks like you did win that one. Huh? Well, gee thanks. But I lost. The professor never loses! *considers*

      • 79 Jackie February 25, 2016 at 14:47

        There is a first time for everything, Professor! Don’t dismay – you still rock!

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:27

        Haha. Gee, thanks. *bows*

  7. 81 Simply Skeptical February 20, 2016 at 02:21

    Whew! It’s nice to have Mr. Knee when battles such as this arise. Glad you put Ms. Blue hair in line…

    • 82 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:37

      Isn’t Mr. Knee something? And here’s a secret: I’ve got two!

      • 83 Simply Skeptical February 24, 2016 at 00:17

        You’re armed and ready to go; or should I say kneed.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:31

        Both of those apply!

  8. 85 Heartafire February 20, 2016 at 01:42

    I don’t know the movie, am I the only one who went googling?, I’m such a nerd .
    knowing full well this could be a ruse of the professors to make us go googling.
    You are a ruffian, I am sure of it now, I love that.

    • 86 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:36

      Definitely a ruffian! Well, I wouldn’t do that. Did you find what movie it was?

      • 87 Heartafire February 22, 2016 at 14:41

        No and I’m tired of googling. Say it!!!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:44

        It is…Jack Reacher! Have you seen it?

      • 89 Heartafire February 22, 2016 at 14:55

        No. Jack Reacher? O.K.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:41

        Do you know who Tom Cruise is?

      • 91 Heartafire February 23, 2016 at 13:48

        Love Tom Cruise. Oh, he’s Jack Reacher! It takes me a while but .., yeah !!

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:50

        Me too! He’s like super cool. A perfect spy. But not as cool as Hector, mind you.

      • 93 Heartafire February 23, 2016 at 15:00

        okay. But who is cooler than Lestat?

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:22

        Who’s Lestat?

      • 95 Heartafire February 24, 2016 at 16:16

        Kidding? Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire…oh, the best!!

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:31

        I bet he’d kill the vampire, you know.

      • 97 Heartafire February 25, 2016 at 14:57

        spoiler alert: He was the king of Vampires, apparently this film didn’t get the best reviews, I thought it was good.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:28

        *laughs* Hmm…does that mean you like Twilight?

      • 99 Heartafire February 26, 2016 at 13:23

        So far I haven’t read or seen Twilight. Am I missing out?

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:28

        Me either! I don’t think we are. After all, one has to kill vampires not fall in love with them, see.

      • 101 Heartafire February 26, 2016 at 16:48

        Well, I could kill a vampire, I have my katana…right throught sternum!

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:38

        Ooo! That’d be brutal. He might scream.

      • 103 Heartafire February 29, 2016 at 14:43

        and run ever so fast, slip into his hideaway, (generally a well kept casket, curtains and matching bedspread), that’s what they do.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 01:55

        Now, I never knew they had a bedspread. That’s sorta cool, see.

      • 105 Heartafire March 1, 2016 at 03:23

        It’s cool! They’re still into decor.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke March 2, 2016 at 19:09

        I want to meet them, the sudden.

      • 107 Heartafire March 2, 2016 at 19:29

        maybe we could set something up?

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:37

        Yes!

      • 109 Heartafire March 3, 2016 at 14:39

        Making plans, using Excel.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke March 3, 2016 at 14:51

        I’m rotten at using excel.

      • 111 Heartafire March 3, 2016 at 15:19

        I’ll just spell it out for you then.:)

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke March 4, 2016 at 15:17

        *bows* Many thanks!

  9. 113 L. Marie February 19, 2016 at 20:45

    Glad you had a steel baton on you, though I wished you’d used it on other assailants earlier. Then perhaps you wouldn’t have found yourself in this predicament with these thugs. At least you dispatched them quickly.

    Unfortunately, I don’t know this film.

    • 114 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:33

      It’s Jack Reacher! I thought for sure you might know if it. But see, if I’d used it earlier, I wouldn’t have gotten such a great fight. That’s one thing Hector always taught me: Always go for the biggest fight.

      • 115 L. Marie February 22, 2016 at 14:48

        I haven’t seen Jack Reacher. I’ll have to Netflix that one.
        Hector taught you well, Professor. :-)

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:39

        Oh, I bet you might like it. There’s plenty of fighting and cussing and fighting. Now, you need to get out and throw that knife, I’m thinking. Practice with it, see.

    I had no doubt you would defeat the beatles, they are singers, not fighters. You must put yourself in greater peril if you wish us to fear for you. Now, I don’t know the movie but I will hazard three guesses. The Never Ending Story? Back to the Future? Willow? Those are my three guesses.

    • 118 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:31

      Imagine if I fought the Beatles back in the day…and vanquished them. We’d never have to hear their dreadful music then. *considers* I’m sorry, Mr. Walt, but nah…all wrong! The movie is…

      • 119 walt walker February 22, 2016 at 14:56

        If you were to vanquish the Beatles, I fear I’d have to draw my boomerang against you.

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:42

        What if I only take Ringo? No one liked him, anyway.

  11. 121 janeybgood February 19, 2016 at 16:46

    Now, if you were fighting a Beatle, that would have been a whole other story….

    • 122 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:30

      Oh, I’d fight all four of them. #NotaBeatlesFan

  12. 123 FictionFan February 19, 2016 at 16:26

    It’s so unfair that you’re willing to scalp that woman and yet you would never scalp Amelia no matter how much I begged! Is the film Enchanted? Perhaps it’s Giselle who’s following you – that would be so sweet! I still feel she’d be the perfect woman for you… #YellowFlower #PurplePrinceCharming

    • 124 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:29

      *laughs* That’s because I do things on a whim, see. Plus, Amelia didn’t have hair, right? I can’t recall. Nah, not Enchanted! I forget all about that dreadful, dreadful movie. *forgets* To think you actually liked that!

      • 125 FictionFan February 24, 2016 at 22:04

        I’m pretty sure she wore a wig – to match her false eyelashes. Oh, you do not forget, sir! How could you forget all that loveliness?? *sings tunelessly* “How does she know…?” *imagines Professor’s mushy, soppy face*

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:40

        Haha. That’s the song you liked from it? Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Don’t ever watch it again!!

      • 127 FictionFan February 25, 2016 at 19:12

        *laughs and gives the Prof a yellow flower*

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:39

        What am I supposed to do with it?

      • 129 FictionFan February 26, 2016 at 01:51

        *gurgles* D’you know, sometimes it’s so great that we communicate online and not face to face. It gives me the opportunity to think twice about saying the first thing that comes into my head…

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:14

        Hahahahahahahahahahaha. I’m always saying the first thing that pop in my mind…this is so not fair. Now, I need to know what you were going to say!

      • 131 FictionFan February 28, 2016 at 15:22

        *chuckles and maintains a tactful silence*

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:53

        *waits* I can wait longer than you.

      • 133 FictionFan February 29, 2016 at 17:41

        *nods satirically* We’ll see…

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke March 1, 2016 at 02:05

        That’s not fair. Makes me think you know the future.

  13. 135 Haylee February 19, 2016 at 16:26

    Can I specify the flavour please? I had maple syrup and bacon popcorn yesterday, it was delightful! That is, of course, if my answer of Jack Reacher is correct?
    I’m loving the image of the frog – can’t decide whether he is charging into battle atop his beetle or he’s about to slam down in some finisher move on the poor insect’s scalp.
    If someone is following you, you must walk up the nearest path, knock and ask for help. That’s what I was told as a child. I’m not sure it’s the soundest advice these days though…

    • 136 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:29

      *grunge* Yes, that’s correct, dadblameit. But…are you sure you want that? Bacon and maple syrup popcorn sounds…well, rather dreadful, you know.

      The second one, I bet! He’s wrestling with the beast. Like Brock Lesnar might do, see.

      Right. What if you knock on a witches door for instance?

      • 137 Haylee February 22, 2016 at 16:44

        Is the Professor begrudging me my winnings?! Seriously, it sounds hideous but tastes delicious – if you like sweet/salty combos.
        The witch thing is problematic, I agree. Unless it’s Glinda, then you’re safe. I’d be wary of candy covered houses too, we all know what happens in those. Although, I imagine you can dispatch with whatever was in your way, if needs be. In fact, I’m not even sure why I’m worried you’re being followed!

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:43

        I might be. I’m not sure if I am, though. But you do have a point. Like chicken and waffles, for instance. *gags*

        Hey, I’m not that vicious. Now, see, if I came upon a house covered in candy…why, I’d invade!

      • 139 Haylee February 23, 2016 at 16:36

        Said every child, in every fairytale scenario, just before being captured and fattened up for a pie! Chicken and sweet waffles, agreed – eugh! Potato waffles would work though!

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:27

        Yes, but just think, if this professor was made into a pie…why it’d be poisonous! Probably end up killing the witch, see.

      • 141 Haylee February 24, 2016 at 17:11

        Doesn’t bring you back to life though does it? It’s not like Jonah and the Whale if you’ve been chopped up and wrapped in pastry!

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 14:35

        Can’t they keep me whole in the pie somehow?

      • 143 Haylee February 25, 2016 at 17:20

        Nope… I hear professors are only tasty when minced (or ground, as I believe your side of the water call it!)

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke February 25, 2016 at 23:35

        Ground? *gulps* That sounds so deadly. I say, Haylee, don’t try cooking professors. That’s just ghastly of you.

      • 145 Haylee February 26, 2016 at 10:40

        Haha, don’t worry, you’re safe. I only cook naughty children! ;)

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke February 26, 2016 at 14:28

        But…aren’t I supposed to be naughty?

      • 147 Haylee February 26, 2016 at 16:23

        Well, if you wish to be eaten then…

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke February 29, 2016 at 13:37

        Now, now. I never said that exactly.

  14. 149 Debbie February 19, 2016 at 16:20

    I have no clue which movie that scene is from, Professor — but that’s okay because I can’t eat popcorn anyway!! Still, maybe you’ll enlighten me because I don’t like feeling ignorant.

    I knew that woman was going to cause trouble! Here she brings backup in the form of four brothers, all of whom are out for mischief. You carry a two-foot long steel baton with you? My gracious, you do mean business, don’t you?!!

    • 150 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:27

      You know, this professor never has popcorn when he goes to the movies? Now, what think you of that? The movie is Jack Reacher. A super cool movie. Fights here. Fights there. Fights everywhere.

      • 151 Debbie February 23, 2016 at 00:36

        I never do, either, although when I go with Domer, he often does (after grumbling about the high cost of the stuff!), then he lets me take a sniff!!

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:49

        A sniff! Haha. I don’t even take sniffs, I must admit. I just pick a few out and throw them about. Hitting people, see.

  15. 153 desertdweller29 February 19, 2016 at 15:58

    Is that Batman with Ben McKenzie? Do I get free popcorn?

    #epicfrogattack #stayoutoftaverns #ladiesman #madeinChina$$

    • 154 Professor VJ Duke February 22, 2016 at 14:26

      Oh dear. Now, I’m thinking, the sudden, I should know who Ben McKenzie is, right? I should. *searches mind*

      Why, look at you hash tagging like that! Must be your new infatuation…

      • 155 desertdweller29 February 22, 2016 at 16:03

        Ben McKenzie is the dude in the picture! So was I right? Was it Batman? Do I win popcorn? Do I? Do I? *gets the butter and salt ready*

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke February 23, 2016 at 13:42

        No, no, DD, it’s Jack Reacher! Tom Cruise is in that picture somewhere, I think. Wouldn’t it be funny if I got the wrong pic up there? *looks* Nah, it’s right.

      • 157 desertdweller29 February 23, 2016 at 23:03

        Weird! (I still demand popcorn, especially after tricking me.)

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke February 24, 2016 at 14:31

        Haha. Doesn’t that mean I win, tho? No popcorn for losers, see. But I suppose I could give you some.
