TPL’s Birthday (The Professor Appears)

So, happy birthday, everyone.

You see, it’s TPL’s 3rd birthday.

My.

I thought it was older, but it isn’t.

It’s only 3.

Feels like I’ve known all you awesome folks for well over 50 years.

We’re all very old.

Let’s just accept it.

It’s great to be old.

Anyways and some.

Everyone always thinks this professor has a long gray or white beard.

I don’t.

You should know this.

After all, we’ve known each other long enough.

Also, t-shirts can be dressy.

I’ll prove it.

Many loves, kisses, and hugs to you all!

*goes out to eat cake*

You’ll each get a piece.

Oh, The Last Samurai soundtrack might make me cry. Forget I said that.

So, yeah, there was supposed to be a video here…but I haven’t time. I must go play oboe in a pit of snakes.

See you soon, loves.

    Oh my. Happy third birthday, TPL! 🍰

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2016 at 12:43

      Why thank you! We’re so old, you know.

    *pushes in a late cake on a huge trolley and sets off party poppers all over the show* – Happy Birthday!!! Well done to all in The Punchy Lands!

    – esme serving cake from upon the Cloud

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:38

      Thank you, Esme! What sort of cake is it?

      • 7 Esme upon the Cloud April 15, 2016 at 07:56

        It’s a five layer one – chocolate fudge – banana and mango – Victoria sponge with buttercream filling and Jammy Dodger with Madagascan vanilla frosting. No expense spared see?

        Did you pop all the balloons of are you keeping some to enjoy watching them shrivel up?

        – Esme with a face-full of cake upon the Cloud

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:06

        I’m keeping them all! But…what about my diet?

      • 9 Esme upon the Cloud April 15, 2016 at 15:13

        They already call you ‘the podgy prof’, I’d be careful and hare them out.

        – esme falling about upon the Cloud

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:33

        Do they? *gets nuke*

      • 11 Esme upon the Cloud April 18, 2016 at 20:21

        …*looks side to side*…some of them do.

        – esme tapping the side of her nose upon the Cloud

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 13:02

        I want names, Judah.

      • 13 Esme upon the Cloud April 19, 2016 at 15:02

        Esme aint no grass. *hands him a pair of scales*

        – esme the best spy in the world upon the Cloud

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:32

        Snake scales?

      • 15 Esme upon the Cloud April 20, 2016 at 20:25

        Billions of ’em.

        – esme the charmer upon the Cloud

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:31

        Billion dollar babies, too.

  3. 17 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 10, 2016 at 01:15

    Happy Birthday, PTL!!!!!! I’ve loved being part of this land. Wishing I could see you play the Oboe. Hope it went well, Duketh. By the way, I’ve been listening to your tunes at work. I must needs a CD, Sir. Much love and hugs. Always.

    • 18 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:59

      Thank you bunches, Audith! Good to have you back along as well. No disappearing in the future! It’s so prohibited. Now, you listen to my music?

      • 19 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 15, 2016 at 19:54

        I’m here reading. Always. Listening to you play the clarinet just now, actually.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:43

        Aw. That’s sorta special, you know. Goodness. The clarinet? *hides* Awful, isn’t it?

      • 21 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 19, 2016 at 18:54

        Beautiful, could use a few more of them, Sir.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:45

        Hymns?

      • 23 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 25, 2016 at 14:14

        Anything you choose, Duke. I shan’t be picky.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:23

        I’m always so picky.

      • 25 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 2, 2016 at 19:35

        I know you are, shouldn’t be though, you know. I’m content listening to what is available. No worries.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:02

        But it’s just gotta…work. Ideas and music. It’s hard to put into words.

  4. 27 Susan P April 9, 2016 at 16:30

    Happy to everyone in the punchy family.

    • 28 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:49

      It’s a great day, isn’t it?

      • 29 Susan P April 20, 2016 at 14:10

        It can always be if you want.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:05

        Humph. Well..I thought…

      • 31 Susan P April 21, 2016 at 20:57

        See, the trouble comes around when you start thinking. Haven’t you noticed?

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:33

        Yes…should I just pluck my brain out?

      • 33 Susan P April 25, 2016 at 14:33

        I don’t think the world is ready for that.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:28

        And why not?

      • 35 Susan P April 26, 2016 at 13:54

        Too dazzling.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:02

        Like a halo.

      • 37 Susan P April 27, 2016 at 13:54

        laughing. Not likely

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:25

        Oh rats and a heifer.

      • 39 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:25

        And corn?

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:31

        On the cob?

      • 41 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:36

        Why not?

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:43

        Gets in the teeth then.

      • 43 Susan P April 30, 2016 at 20:01

        *hands over floss

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:49

        There’s an answer for everything, I see. Yo.

  5. 45 Freakishly Fangirlish April 8, 2016 at 21:33

    Also, when do I get that piece of cake?

    • 46 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:46

      I’m shipping it right now. I think you’ll like it. Actually, I put it out behind your tree.

      • 47 Freakishly Fangirlish April 11, 2016 at 17:25

        Thank you muches! I shalll leave a pot of tea for you also, as a bday present

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:20

        Aw. Now I”m suitably chuffed. *bows*

      • 49 Freakishly Fangirlish April 12, 2016 at 13:56

        *bows* Wait, should I curtsy? :P

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:39

        I’m not sure…what’s the difference?

      • 51 Freakishly Fangirlish April 13, 2016 at 17:27

        Curtsying is for ladies, of course. But I have also seen ladies bow and men curtsy. Maybe I can do both?

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:34

        You know, do one right after the other and see what happens.

      • 53 Freakishly Fangirlish April 14, 2016 at 17:18

        I might fall over if I did

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:01

        That can be your new bow routine!

      • 55 Freakishly Fangirlish April 15, 2016 at 13:42

        That’s true, and it would perfectly encompass my awkward clumsiness :P

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:28

        People will love it. It’ll be HUGE.

  6. 57 Freakishly Fangirlish April 8, 2016 at 20:42

    HAPPPPYYYY BIRTHHDDAYYYYYYYY

    • 58 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:42

      Thank you bunches, Em! I feel old now.

      • 59 Freakishly Fangirlish April 11, 2016 at 17:25

        You are old. *hands you cane*

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:20

        How old, tho?

      • 61 Freakishly Fangirlish April 12, 2016 at 13:56

        Ugh, ancient! Like…thirty XD JK

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:39

        Hahaha. 88, of course.

      • 63 Freakishly Fangirlish April 13, 2016 at 17:26

        That’s how old my great grandma is. I shall now refer to you as my great grandpa then!

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:34

        *laughs* Yes, now I feel very old.

      • 65 Freakishly Fangirlish April 14, 2016 at 13:54

        It’s okay, great grandpa *pat pat*

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:52

        Haha. I’m going to…whack you with a club or something.

      • 67 Freakishly Fangirlish April 15, 2016 at 13:41

        Whack me with your cane? *snickers*

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:28

        Haha. It happens to be a super duper cool sword cane, madam!

      • 69 Freakishly Fangirlish April 18, 2016 at 16:31

        …super duper cool, huh?

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 12:58

        Oh yes! And quite fantastically sharp!

      • 71 Freakishly Fangirlish April 19, 2016 at 17:23

        But does it play music? *raises eyebrows*

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:42

        Well, not really. I mean, it is a sword.

      • 73 Freakishly Fangirlish April 20, 2016 at 15:07

        Well, that’s slightly disappointing…

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:12

        You could always hum wile you kill!

      • 75 Freakishly Fangirlish April 21, 2016 at 14:16

        That just seems cruel to the victim, I think… But I can imagine humming Phantom of the Opera music on my rampage haha

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:16

        Oh yeah! Like Angel of Music.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TPL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. 78 Jackie April 8, 2016 at 19:01

    Happy Birthday!!

    • 79 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:37

      Thank you!

      • 80 Jackie April 11, 2016 at 15:06

        You’re welcome! How long is the celebration? Long I hope – is there cake?

      • 81 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:15

        Well, it was just a few hours, can you believe. There was cake. But the rabbits stole it.

      • 82 Jackie April 12, 2016 at 13:16

        Oh man I hate when that happens!

      • 83 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:22

        Me too. It’s such a dark cloud on an otherwise sunny day. Grr.

      • 84 Jackie April 12, 2016 at 14:01

        Go away dark cloud! No one wants you around!!

      • 85 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:39

        Yes, yes! *yells at it too* I think we won.

      • 86 Jackie April 13, 2016 at 14:27

        I just looked and I think that dark cloud is history! I can’t see hide nor hair of it anywhere. Good work Professor!

      • 87 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:31

        I say, you’re right! Thank you, Jackie!

      • 88 Jackie April 14, 2016 at 14:05

        Anytime professor!

      • 89 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:53

        I like how we did that, of course.

  9. 90 Lady Dunamis April 8, 2016 at 15:33

    🎁🎉🍰 happy bbbbb birthday boo yah!

    • 91 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:55

      Thanks! Boo yah is so inspiring, you know.

  10. 92 Debbie April 8, 2016 at 14:05

    Golly…three years already? How time does fly when we’re having fun! And we are, you know — TPL is a true delight, and ’tis grand we’re all interconnected through this interwebs thingy. Happy Blogoversary, dear Professor, and don’t forget to send me some of that cake. Chocolate is preferred, but as long as you’re serving it up, doesn’t much matter the flavor (scratch that — no coconut, okay??!) Oboes are beastly — why are you switching from clarinet?

    • 93 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:54

      Why thank you lots and lots and lots, Debbie! You guys make TPL great, in truth. Well…there was some coconut on it…is that bad? I hope you like it. Coconut is good for the ears, I hear.

      Oh I’m not. The part called for oboe. I’ve played it in the past. I hate it.

  11. 94 L. Marie April 8, 2016 at 12:59

    Wishing you the happiest of blogoversaries, Professor! The Punchy Lands is now officially out of the “terrible twos” as they say about toddlers. Not sure what they saw about threes. I’m in the same boat, so perhaps I should research what they say. Will have a slice of cake though. I actually have a cake to slice. Will eat that.

    • 95 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:53

      And send me a piece please. The cake I had coming was caught by a hound dog who was very hungry and cranky. Goodness. Theatrical Threes!

  12. 96 Sonya Solomonovich April 8, 2016 at 11:13

    I can’t believe it’s been 3 years!! Happy Birthday to the Punchy Lands, and many loves, kisses, and hugs to you, professor! Good luck with the pit of snakes. Are they just one type of snake or a variety mix?

    • 97 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:52

      Thank you, Sonya! Bunches of snakes! In fact, would you like to come along and help me kill them all?

      • 98 Sonya Solomonovich April 13, 2016 at 12:18

        Thanks, but I’m sure they’re not so bad. They might be friendly!

      • 99 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:49

        Friendly? Well come along and see. I’ll stand behind you.

      • 100 Sonya Solomonovich April 13, 2016 at 16:11

        Ok, let me get my snake charming flute!

      • 101 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:32

        Oh perfect! That’ll fetch them.

  13. 102 Simply Skeptical April 8, 2016 at 10:39

    A break from the daily issues the Punchy Lands is a breath of fresh air and uplift. Its like that morning cup of coffee with giggles. No other place like it. Thanks for the dedication and fun. Happy 3 years and looking forward to many more!!

    • 103 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:52

      *laughs* Coffee and giggles! That is so hilarious. *hug*

  14. 104 PorterGirl April 8, 2016 at 09:03

    Happy Birthday Professor and all at TPL! Why, it feels as if you have been here forever. Life would feel very dull now without the fabulous characters and adventures of The Punchy Lands. Good luck with the oboe, although of course you will not need it. Also – the title here is misleading – you haven’t appeared at all! Many loves, kisses and hugs back – I shall await delivery of my slice of cake with interest.

    • 105 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:51

      Forever indeed, madam! The oboe…I’m going to blow it up. I hate it so bad, you wouldn’t believe it. I’m going to drop it from a cliff, burn it in a fire, hang it by its neck, stab it, shoot it…that sort of thing.

      Well, I was going to, but I cut it…

      • 106 PorterGirl April 8, 2016 at 20:44

        You will be a legend and you know it. I certainly do.
        Hmm! But I know what you mean. I do that too.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:45

        I’m more of an urban legend, now that I think on it. Like a horror story. Too many reservations still, haha.

      • 108 PorterGirl April 11, 2016 at 14:12

        Hmm! Or a limerick that has run amock. You are so many things I have lost count. For now I shall think of you as… a goose nubbin.

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:14

        Yes, that’s probably best. Or just a whiff of red smoke. That could be me, too.

      • 110 PorterGirl April 12, 2016 at 13:32

        You are far more troublesome than a bit of smoke, I tell you! More like a roar than a whiff haha!

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:37

        A sickening roar wafting from the mountains of doom. *nods*

      • 112 PorterGirl April 13, 2016 at 13:38

        That is quite a beautiful phrase *steals it*

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:59

        *thieves it right back*

      • 114 PorterGirl April 13, 2016 at 14:03

        Bugger. Pah. I’m telling The Dean. *laughs*

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:30

        I think I maybe bodyslam him…haha.

  15. 116 Alastair Savage April 8, 2016 at 06:04

    You do still have the ‘tache though, don’t you?

    • 117 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:50

      Did I ever?

      • 118 Alastair Savage April 8, 2016 at 19:13

        In my pictures you do, and a top hat, and a cane.

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:39

        Always, of course. I’m so wicked and professorish. I’m older than twice you, of course as well.

  16. 120 bardictale April 8, 2016 at 05:22

    Happy birthday! And many more, beardless-professor!

    • 121 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:50

      *laughs* Do professors usually have beards?

      • 122 bardictale April 9, 2016 at 20:25

        I don’t know. Most of the ones I know are women.

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:55

        Seriously?! Women cannot be professors!

      • 124 bardictale April 12, 2016 at 07:51

        Now, why not? You are being chauvinistic.

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:21

        Wait…isn’t that what knights are?

      • 126 bardictale April 12, 2016 at 16:45

        Not by default, no.

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:43

        Hmm. I think you’re making fun of me.

      • 128 bardictale April 13, 2016 at 20:55

        I am most assuredly not, sir.

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:37

        *hands it back*

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:46

        Don’t you want to blow on it?

      • 134 bardictale April 19, 2016 at 06:24

        No, thank you.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 13:03

        *wrestles Bard in Jiu jitsu*

      • 136 bardictale April 19, 2016 at 21:15

        *breaks the professor’s hold, and jumps on a helicopter*

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:46

        A helicopter! Wait. Take me with you!

      • 138 bardictale April 20, 2016 at 18:43

        No! You keep on trying to hit me!

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:19

        I just tackled you a bit.

      • 140 bardictale April 21, 2016 at 21:23

        And how do you know I’m going anywhere interesting?

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:33

        Because Bard goes to cool places! Everyone knows this.

      • 142 bardictale April 25, 2016 at 16:37

        Ok. I accept that. You can come if you promise to be nice, sir.

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:32

        Many, many promises!

      • 144 bardictale April 26, 2016 at 21:56

        Ok, then. Hop aboard!

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:11

        *hops on*

  17. 146 walt walker April 8, 2016 at 00:47

    Happy third birthday! Three is a magical number. Mr H said to send you three fist bumps from his own forehead.

    • 147 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:50

      Tell him I do appreciate it. But he can’t have any cake.

      • 148 walt walker April 8, 2016 at 21:13

        What about hot dogs?

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:46

        He can have all of those. But you must needs bring the buns, please.

      • 150 walt walker April 11, 2016 at 14:16

        Ah, so you see the wisdom of the BYOB policy, I see.

      • 151 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:14

        Well, you made me see the wisdom in it, after all. And for that, I am truly thankful.

  18. 152 jeanixAngel April 8, 2016 at 00:44

    “Everyone always thinks this professor has a long gray or white beard.” count me on! :D … Happy Birthday TPL!

    • 153 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:50

      You do too? *dies*

      • 154 jeanixAngel April 11, 2016 at 00:40

        Yeah… and like a fat-aged-man… as what I told you before… :D

      • 155 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:59

        That’s how you see me?!

      • 156 jeanixAngel April 13, 2016 at 08:16

        that’s what I thought before I knew you… :)

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:49

        See? That’s why we must do a video!

      • 158 jeanixAngel April 15, 2016 at 01:46

        Aaaa… do it by chunk… a bit thrill, I say.. lol

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:06

        I’m going to riot now.

      • 160 jeanixAngel April 16, 2016 at 06:55

        Can’t wait.. :D

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:44

        It’ll scare you!

      • 162 jeanixAngel April 19, 2016 at 01:22

        Hahaha! We’ll see… :D

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 13:03

        See what? Oh no!

  19. 164 A. Mouse April 7, 2016 at 23:26

    Happy Birthday! Enjoy the cake.

    • 165 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:50

      Thank you, Ms Mouse! And I’m packing for our Iceland adventure.

      • 166 A. Mouse April 8, 2016 at 18:54

        Hooray!

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:58

        I hope you only have one bag and lots of food.

      • 168 A. Mouse April 8, 2016 at 19:07

        How about one bag and no food?

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:38

        We’ll have to hunt, then, you know.

      • 170 A. Mouse April 11, 2016 at 16:32

        I’m sure a hunt for grocery stores won’t be quite as strenuous as a hunt for wild animals.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:16

        Yes…but isn’t that cheating?

      • 172 A. Mouse April 12, 2016 at 19:00

        I’m okay with cheating if it means I won’t starve in a foreign country. Priorities, man.

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:44

        But…but…come now! Okay, I’ll agree to a quick stop, then.

      • 174 A. Mouse April 13, 2016 at 16:23

        I knew you’d come to see reason eventually!

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:33

        Yes, but I still might grumble about it, mind.

      • 176 A. Mouse April 14, 2016 at 16:49

        Oh grumbling is fine. I grumble all the time! Hey, that rhymed!

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:00

        It did! Let’s grumble about the cold. *nods*

  20. 178 John W. Howell April 7, 2016 at 21:39

    Happy Birthday, TPL. Yes, it does seem like 50 years.

    • 179 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:49

      Doesn’t it? *gives John a handshake* How about a cherry milkshake?

      • 180 John W. Howell April 8, 2016 at 19:10

        How about a margarita?

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:39

        Is it cherry?

      • 182 John W. Howell April 11, 2016 at 17:18

        No for heaven’s sake. Lime juice

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:18

        But cherries are better, you said.

      • 184 John W. Howell April 12, 2016 at 16:34

        In some things. Not a margarita.

      • 185 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:43

        Cherry hater!

      • 186 John W. Howell April 13, 2016 at 19:08

        Margarita lover.

      • 187 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:36

        With cherries only.

      • 188 John W. Howell April 14, 2016 at 18:40

        Ugh

      • 189 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 13:04

        Ugh indeed.

      • 190 John W. Howell April 15, 2016 at 13:12

        Indeed, indeed.

      • 191 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:26

        Haha.

  21. 192 Haylee April 7, 2016 at 21:31

    Three is a magical number so happy magical blogbirth! I’ve missed out on so many TPL adventures but very pleased to have jumped on board these past few months. :) Can’t imagine the blogosphere without you. Oh, and you already know that I think T-shirts (with ties, maybe waistcoats) can be dressy! Enjoy your cakey celebration 🍰🍰🍰

    • 193 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:47

      I feel like I’ve none you for ages! Since before the gold dragons came around. Thank you bunches, Haylee! *bows* Oh yes. T-shirts are the most epic things ever! This is a truth.

      • 194 Haylee April 8, 2016 at 21:57

        😊 Golden dragons are way more epic than T-shirts. Now a dragon in a golden T-shirt…

      • 195 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:46

        Can I please, please have one of those?

      • 196 Haylee April 11, 2016 at 14:03

        Only if I can have a pop-up recipe book for banana bread…
        I had a very odd dream about some blogging peeps last night. You sent me a package of this enormous recipe book but were very particular about when I should bake and also sent a calendar with banana bake days clearly marked! It was all quite bizarre.
        (Just like to make it clear you weren’t the only blog friend in there, you know, so you don’t think I’m completely weird!!)

      • 197 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:13

        *laughing* No, no. I think that’s rather cool. But…particular about baking? I’m not sure I’d do that. Plus, I’d probably send you a katana, you know. Or a few mags. Or maybe even a black hoodie. Something like that, see. Still, banana bread sounds good.

      • 198 Haylee April 12, 2016 at 13:31

        Haha, well I’ve no idea how my brain makes these connections – if it was halfway sensible it would obviously have been a delivery of weaponry and ammunition! I’d prefer a grey hoodie though please, if you don’t mind. 😊

      • 199 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:37

        Grey over black? Are you doubly positively sure?

      • 200 Haylee April 13, 2016 at 13:40

        Triple-y (is that a word?) sure. Dark grey though, let it be said. Or magenta.

      • 201 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 14:00

        Wait. Isn’t magenta purple?

      • 202 Haylee April 13, 2016 at 14:02

        Hmm, kind of purplish, reddish yes. I just like the colour!

      • 203 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:29

        Red shouldn’t be corrupted with purple, tho, don’t you see.

      • 204 Haylee April 14, 2016 at 13:42

        😳 But purple needs red to exist! Plus, it is THE most delightful colour of the spectrum. After green. Red can learn a lot from those two.

      • 205 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:48

        Purple more delightful than red? Now, now. Next you’ll be saying you don’t like frog legs, and that rocks are better than trees. (That might be true, but still, yo.)

  22. 206 FictionFan April 7, 2016 at 20:37

    Oy!! You!!! Get back here and get that video up! What do you think this is, a holiday camp?? I bet you’re just too busy combing your beard!!

    And, sir, may I just point out that it’s physically impossible for you to have known me for 50 years, since as you well know, I am only 21!!! Don’t imply that just because you’re ancient we all are, do you hear???

    PS Happy Birthday, dear Prof! You have filled the last three years with much fun and laughter… thank you! Make sure my slice of cake is HUGE!!

    • 207 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:44

      I know…but it’s one of me having speaks. And I don’t know about it. I think I shall cut it out. You know, like a bad ribbon or something.

      Well…I wasn’t referring to you, of course. We just met: about two weeks ago? Isn’t that right?

      You will get the hugest piece ever invented by mankind! Thank you, FEF, too. *bows*

      • 208 FictionFan April 9, 2016 at 17:29

        Hmm… well, I’ll let you off this time… but only ‘cos I’m very kind.

        That’s right! *sighs and puts top back on jar of wrinkle cream*

        Yayyyy!!! Chocolate cake??? With chocolate fudge icing??? Hurry up then!! *smiles bigly and curtseys*

      • 209 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:55

        You shouldn’t have let me off that easy.

        You’re so young (and confused) that I must needs help you out, of course.

        And with seeds on top!

      • 210 FictionFan April 11, 2016 at 16:57

        *rampages* Well, put the dadblamed video up now, sir!!! I want to hear this famous non-accent of yours!! Now!!!!

        *nods* True on both counts – but I didn’t used to be so confused. That bit’s your fault!

        Or chocolate sprinkles!

      • 211 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:18

        But it’ll give you nightmares for years! Like the Babadook.

        My fault? I’m not confused at all. Just rather…messed up, I think.

        Haha. Everything chocolate. Goodness.

      • 212 FictionFan April 12, 2016 at 20:44

        I’m willing to take that risk! So long as you don’t kill a dog in it… *gulps*

        Nah, I think you took Shnoddy’s befuddlement class and are practicing on me…

        Gooder than goodness! Yummy!

      • 213 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:48

        It’s just awful, tho. We can’t post it. We can’t.

        Shnoddy is probably my uncle, now that i think on it.

        It’ll be cherry, the sudden.

      • 214 FictionFan April 14, 2016 at 13:49

        Well, I can’t decide whetehr you wnat to be talked into it or not, so… select your preferred response…

        a) Of course you musn’t post it if it makes you feel uncomfortable.
        b) Oh stop whining, sir, and get it posted NOW!

        *horror stricken* No! It can’t be true!! Though… that would make you Scottish…

        Hey! It’s my cake! You keep your cherries for your own cake!!

      • 215 Professor VJ Duke April 15, 2016 at 12:51

        Oh please come up with a C, won’t you. I like many options. See, when one shops for dishes, one has so many options it boggles the mind. What I’m trying to say is this: I need more options!

        You know, I don’t think I’ve got any Scottish blood in me, haha. I’m 100% American, remember.

        But I’m looking out for your welfare.

      • 216 FictionFan April 15, 2016 at 17:15

        Goodness! Well, if you insist!

        c) Send it to me and I’ll judge whether it should be shown.
        d) Make it again, only make it good this time.
        e) Make one of Nick instead!! (Ooh, I like that option – chosse that one!)
        f) Make it again but get Schwarzy to do a voiceover.

        Is that enough? I don’t want to confuse you…

        Well, we can’t all be superior beings! An all-American boy! How my heart flutters…

        Hmphh!!

      • 217 Professor VJ Duke April 18, 2016 at 12:40

        Oh boy. Mind. Is. Blown. I think I like d, tho. Isn’t that the best? I’m sure you agree, the sudden. I’ll make it again. Only better this time. And it will be different. Like a good bit different.

        All American beast, you mean. Like wrangler.

      • 218 FictionFan April 18, 2016 at 16:34

        An excellent choice! Though I think you should do e) too…

        Wrangler? Aren’t they jeans? *befuddled again*

      • 219 Professor VJ Duke April 19, 2016 at 12:59

        Oh I don’t know. Nick wouldn’t like that.

        Oh you’re right. I think I chose the wrong word there.

      • 220 FictionFan April 19, 2016 at 16:06

        See, he’s making the mistake you keep making – thinking that his opinion is important! Men!! Tchah! I might get up a petition…

        *nods* I expect you meant toad.

      • 221 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:38

        Humph noodles. Of course my opinion sorta matters. To the toads at least.

        Haha. Well…no more Coke for you!

      • 222 FictionFan April 20, 2016 at 19:49

        Ah, well, yes… the toads…

        *gasps* Nooooooooooo!!!!! Then no more black pudding for you either!

      • 223 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:29

        Many deals on that. I agree. Let’s sign the papers and the passport.

      • 224 FictionFan April 21, 2016 at 16:13

        Hmm… I think I’ve been conned… *stomps off*

      • 225 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:27

        But…but these are your terms dadblameit!

    • 226 Susan P April 9, 2016 at 16:28

      What FF said.

      • 227 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:49

        FF is brilliant. Like a bright seashell on a salty beach.

      • 228 Susan P April 20, 2016 at 14:10

        What does that mean?

      • 229 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:05

        Umm. You know, bright?

      • 230 Susan P April 21, 2016 at 20:55

        Oh! You mean bright.

      • 231 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:32

        Like a star.

      • 232 Susan P April 25, 2016 at 14:34

        Or a fire.

      • 233 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:28

        Oh yes. I’d rather be one of those.

      • 234 Susan P April 26, 2016 at 13:53

        Things will warm up!

      • 235 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:01

        And look up.

      • 236 Susan P April 27, 2016 at 13:54

        and around

      • 237 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:24

        Like a merry thingy.

      • 238 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:25

        Yes, that

      • 239 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:31

        Humph.

      • 240 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:36

        Why did you leave out the noodle?

      • 241 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:44

        From where?

      • 242 Susan P April 30, 2016 at 20:00

        The cookie jar.

      • 243 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:49

        I just sit that on my desk now. Sick and tired of getting a stool to get it, see.

      • 244 Susan P May 3, 2016 at 14:49

        Poor dear man.

      • 245 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:11

        *shakes head too* I’m a hopeless case.

      • 246 Susan P May 11, 2016 at 17:59

        Why do you think that?

      • 247 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2016 at 01:46

        Because all my case workers are dead.

      • 248 Susan P May 12, 2016 at 13:14

        Can’t argue with that.

      • 249 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2016 at 14:11

        I win see.

      • 250 Susan P May 13, 2016 at 14:19

        This round – mabe.

      • 251 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2016 at 22:29

        And two of the future ones.

      • 252 Susan P May 15, 2016 at 19:53

        *frowns* what?

      • 253 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 12:40

        It’s only fair.

      • 254 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 13:48

        It is my decision to be the person who decides if it is fair.

      • 255 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 18:54

        So…is it?

      • 256 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 19:51

        It is. Twice.

      • 257 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2016 at 12:44

        Twice over! Capital. I’m feeling beastly now

      • 258 Susan P May 17, 2016 at 17:45

        You begin to look like Catain America.

      • 259 Professor VJ Duke May 18, 2016 at 13:12

        I’ve always wanted his shield, in truth.

      • 260 Susan P May 19, 2016 at 14:14

        You could do a lot with that shield.

      • 261 Professor VJ Duke May 20, 2016 at 14:17

        Form the tortoise, maybe.

      • 262 Susan P May 20, 2016 at 19:03

        You should some of the weapons in India.

      • 263 Professor VJ Duke May 23, 2016 at 13:22

        But whY?

      • 264 Susan P May 24, 2016 at 13:17

        Check it out for yourself. It bites through steel like it is hot butter.

      • 265 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:07

        I need one, then

      • 266 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 13:17

        You really do need one.

      • 267 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:22

        Cause I’m so vicious.

      • 268 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 14:14

        Prove it.

      • 269 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2016 at 14:06

        Okay…I fought on the beach at Troy?

      • 270 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 14:23

        That, sir, is not proof positive.

      • 271 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2016 at 14:31

        What you mean you don’t believe that?

      • 272 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 18:20

        Something like that. You know, right?

      • 273 Professor VJ Duke June 6, 2016 at 14:46

        Overall. Still, I’m right.

      • 274 Susan P June 6, 2016 at 16:40

        What if you start being left?

      • 275 Professor VJ Duke June 7, 2016 at 13:17

        I’d probably retire then.

      • 276 Susan P June 7, 2016 at 14:06

        Or run for President .

      • 277 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:12

        I’ll be DT’s VP.

      • 278 Susan P June 8, 2016 at 13:54

        There are enough of that sort, but hey, maybe he could reform, right?

      • 279 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:01

        Hey, we can only hope.

      • 280 Susan P June 9, 2016 at 18:15

        We will manage. Wait and see.

      • 281 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:34

        *waits impatiently*

      • 282 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 13:39

        Gets flustered and can’t think. Dadblame it you!

      • 283 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:47

        *laughs* I like the swearing there

      • 284 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 17:47

        I get rattled easily.

      • 285 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:48

        We must get you a katana.

      • 286 Susan P June 14, 2016 at 12:54

        Will it be lavender?

      • 287 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:13

        The blade can be a light lavender if you like.

      • 288 Susan P June 16, 2016 at 14:05

        Hotdiggydog!

  23. 289 Heartafire April 7, 2016 at 20:04

    Happy Birthday indeed, dear Professor and TPL! Many happy returns:)

    • 290 Professor VJ Duke April 8, 2016 at 18:43

      Why thank you, madam! We appreciate it. Well, I do. And Brock Lesnar does.

      • 291 Heartafire April 8, 2016 at 19:46

        Yay, Brock and the Prof. 3 years! fabulous!

      • 292 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:41

        We’re so old now, huh?

      • 293 Heartafire April 11, 2016 at 13:42

        nods, yes!

      • 294 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 14:00

        Let’s practice takedowns.

      • 295 Heartafire April 11, 2016 at 15:22

        You have to be fast, like a cricket.

      • 296 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:15

        Crickets are so fast. And mean.

      • 297 Heartafire April 12, 2016 at 14:03

        and noisy

      • 298 Professor VJ Duke April 13, 2016 at 13:40

        And probably tasty.

      • 299 Heartafire April 13, 2016 at 14:23

        served with hummus.

      • 300 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:31

        Ew!

      • 301 Heartafire April 14, 2016 at 13:34

        It takes a sick mind to invent hummus. Isn’t that a giant vehicle of some kind?

      • 302 Professor VJ Duke April 14, 2016 at 13:38

        Hahaha. I think you’re right. I’ve always liked those vehicles.

      Haha, yo!! And the weirdest professor, don’t you see.

      • 305 desertdweller29 April 9, 2016 at 02:40

        Normal is so overrated, professor. Stay weird.

      • 306 Professor VJ Duke April 11, 2016 at 13:47

        And heartless, too, don’t you know.

      • 307 desertdweller29 April 11, 2016 at 15:01

        Hah! Right0 chap. ;)

      • 308 Professor VJ Duke April 12, 2016 at 13:14
