Joining the Fray

Even when things are hopeless, remember, hope never dies.

So, the professor joined the fight like a mongoose going after a cobra.

After all, a good fight is a good fight.

I couldn’t let Schwarz Tauptinker fight alone. He was fighting to protect the honor of his sister, Gertrude. That’s a good cause, I’d say.

Plus, Prince Beef had just sorta ordered this professor away to jail as well. So, I had to fight because of that.

Capital. Yo.

I joined the fray, and Bud Parker soon followed.

We began to clear the guards out like spinach is cleared off my dinner plate.

One fellow tried to hit me a good one with his steel baton, but I sorta dodged then showed his chin my elbow.

Crack!

He hit the ground.

“Watch out, bud!” Parker warned.

I spun.

But it was sorta too late.

This professor got a good clobbering right on the back of the head. I hit the ground.

Schwarz was still fighting like a mad man, dodging here, attacking there, messing around mostly everywhere.

Now, what shocked me most was this: Clara Higgins had joined the fight. She was, in fact, attacking Prince Beef.

“You hag!” the prince was screaming as he dodged for cover. “Leave me or I’ll have you executed!”

But Clara wasn’t listening.

Gertrude was sorta rooting Schwarz on.

What a battle this was, yo.

Anyways, I’d hit the ground, very close to where the jeweled katana was laying. The fake one, that is.

I picked it up and was on my feet in less that a second or two.

My attacker was surprised.

But I sorta rammed the katana through him.

That fetch him out.

We were epic like this, only the other fellow didn't have a sword.

We were epic like this, only the other fellow didn’t have a sword. And I didn’t die at the end.

Then things started to change.

First off, Fats Henry charged into the fray with more palace guards.

Only these guards were armed to the teeth.

With these sorts of things:

Unknown

This professor, Schwarz, Parker, Clara, and Gertrude…yup, we were all under custody in a matter of a few ticks in time.

What a sad thingy.

Prince Beef stood before us, disheveled, and very, very cranky.

“Well!” he sputtered. “You’re all going to die for this outrage. Trying to steal the katana again? Attacking me? When will you learn my word is law?!”

“They’re idiots,” Henry boomed. “Kill them all, now! And I see you have my sword.”

“Oh yes,” Prince Beef said, smoothing his velvet coat. “Take it and bring me the Diamond of Drake. But I don’t know now. I’m going to have to execute all my girlfriends. So I have no need of an engagement ring to be made from the diamond. Still, bring me the Diamond of Drake. I want it, peasant. Now, take them away.”

“I just want to say one thing,” I said.

All eyes turned on me.

“Your velvet coat and current hairstyle, Mr. Prince, is rather hideous. Dadblameit.”

We were roughly escorted to the prison to await our doom.

    I remain cynically optimistic as far as hope goes.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:37

      That means you think there’s not much hope…doesn’t it?

      • 3 Jackie April 25, 2016 at 13:41

        I hope there’s hope but I won’t hold my breath waiting for it.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:19

        Me neither. No reason to not breathe after all.

      • 5 Jackie April 26, 2016 at 14:12

        That’s right!

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:03

        Doubly right.

  2. 7 Nancy Loderick April 20, 2016 at 17:03

    Oh dear Professor,

    You should know that violence never solves anything; it only begets more violence. I think you should take up yoga and next time you find yourself in such a situation, you can just start bowing and saying, “Namaste.” I think your opponent might slither away because he will think you are crazy.

    Nancy

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:17

      But…but…but…violence brings peace! Just look at Rome. Every time they were violent, there was a peace for a million years or so. Don’t chaps in yoga use swords?

      • 9 Nancy Loderick April 21, 2016 at 20:13

        Hi Professor,

        If the yoga chaps used swords, they wouldn’t be yoga chaps now would they? They would be warriors. :)

        Nancy

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:31

        That’s a good point. I didn’t think of that, of course.

  3. 11 Simply Skeptical April 19, 2016 at 22:47

    What a battle scene of excitement. You had em on the run go Prof! But then you had to spoil it all by saying something stupid like…..hideous. Frank S. had it right wouldn’t “l love you” been a better way to go at this point?

    • 12 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:47

      *laughing* Then I went and spoiled it all by saying something stupid like I Love You. See, that something stupid was “I love you”, double-see.

  4. 13 John W. Howell April 19, 2016 at 21:59

    This was a tug on superman’s cape moment. I think I would insult Prince Beef a little less while in custody.

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

      I know. Wasn’t the smartest thing, was it?

      • 15 John W. Howell April 20, 2016 at 12:57

        Oh well. You are still in one piece.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 12:59

        Physically, that is.

      • 17 John W. Howell April 21, 2016 at 16:17

        Well, that goes without saying. The other has been a little fragmented.

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

        But just a little right now. It might get worse in the future.

      • 19 John W. Howell April 25, 2016 at 17:14

        Hold out until it gets really bad.

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

        Then what?

      • 21 John W. Howell April 26, 2016 at 18:13

        Go on disability

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:09

        But imagine this professor going on disability! What will that do to my warrior image!

      • 23 John W. Howell April 27, 2016 at 13:01

        Old solders never die they just talk about their wounds

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:22

        That sounds like me a bit, you know.

      • 25 John W. Howell April 28, 2016 at 13:25

        That’s what inspired me to say it.

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

        How’d you know I was old?

      • 27 John W. Howell April 28, 2016 at 19:59

        I’ve seen your painting. I think you may be crossed with Dorian Grey

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:58

        *laughs* Have I gotten very ugly yet?

      • 29 John W. Howell April 29, 2016 at 18:04

        No just a little older.

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

        Ah, that’s perfect. I’m a bit spicier, then.

  5. 31 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 19, 2016 at 19:01

    The Renowned PL Poet leaves quite a comforted reminding. Lovely.

    Then you toss in a fierce fight amongst men and I’m reminded of the professor’s lively spirit. And in the end..back to prison for you!

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

      You just must go and get tea with Shnodgrate. I think you’d like each other.

      I know. Prison. I’m there constantly. Bust me out, won’t you?

      • 33 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister April 25, 2016 at 14:13

        Yes, but I’m afraid of his wife. I’ve heard she is most frightening. You’ve warned me already. No, I don’t think I’ll bust you out. Seems someone was sent ahead already.

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

        His wife is just a bit wicked. Just a bit, mind you. You could always send me a missile in the mail. that might help.

  6. 35 Freakishly Fangirlish April 19, 2016 at 17:26

    Do tell more about his hideous hairstyle and coat, please

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

      Well, the coat was a dark velvet. And the hair is all floppy. Longish, too. He keeps swishing it out of his eyes, see.

      • 37 Freakishly Fangirlish April 20, 2016 at 15:08

        Hmm, he actually sounds rather cute, tbh

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:13

        Dadblameit. I’m sure you’d think so.

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

        Of course I would

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:18

        But he’s not dadblameit!

  7. 41 L. Marie April 19, 2016 at 16:56

    Well! A scrap! Love a good fight! Love the mongoose/cobra choreography. Hmm. Clara joined in, eh? Perhaps she’s not as vile as I thought she was. No. Wait. I’ll bet she is.
    Will you seek out Clara or Gertrude while you recover from your wound? Were you coshed in the same place as before? You seem to be concussed a lot. Better watch that. How many fingers am I holding up?

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:41

      She was fighting, tho. So she must’ve gone up a couple points in your head. Just a bit, mind you. Up a bit on the scale.

      4! Well, I don’t know if I got hit that hard. I still think things aren’t spinning. Yet. Nah. I probably won’t.

      • 43 L. Marie April 20, 2016 at 12:46

        Okay. You passed the how-many-fingers-am-I-holding-up test (although I would have accepted two as an answer). Yes, Clara is somewhat okay. But I still don’t trust her.

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:51

        Oh boy wow. I never passed that test before! *proud moment* Do you think she still has a crush on me, tho?

  8. 45 Sonya Solomonovich April 19, 2016 at 16:06

    It is a sad thingy indeed, but it was a good fight! I’m impressed with Clara for joining the fray. This reminds me, I once wrote a fantasy novel with a warrior maiden named Clara in it.

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

      Oh no way! Really? Was she cool?

  9. 47 Heartafire April 19, 2016 at 15:29

    I’m pleased you were able to get in that last slur at Beef re the velvet coat before being hauled away, that stung so good! I’ll post bail once more, but I’m running out of assets. I can imagine you in this horrid confrontation, a whirling dervish no doubt!

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

      Well, maybe just give us bread with tools in it? Or, blow a hole in the wall, please. That’ll work, see.

      • 49 Heartafire April 20, 2016 at 15:51

        sure, I can arrange that.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:15

        Now, now. That does sound foreboding.

      • 51 Heartafire April 21, 2016 at 18:49

        nod, nod…wink ,wink.

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:30

        And a rash burn.

      • 53 Heartafire April 25, 2016 at 13:38

        That usually happenings when I am blowing a hole in the wall.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:18

        Such violence, I say. smh

      • 55 Heartafire April 26, 2016 at 13:27

        sorry, that’s just how I roll.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:38

        Me too, please.

      • 57 Heartafire April 26, 2016 at 13:47

        let’s roll, not literally ! :)

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:00

        Literally. I like that word.

      • 59 Heartafire April 27, 2016 at 13:56

        I made that up, another genius move.

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

        *in awe of Hollie’s genius*

      • 61 Heartafire April 28, 2016 at 13:26

        nods approvingly!

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:32

        Time to practice jiu jitsu.

      • 63 Heartafire April 28, 2016 at 13:36

        I am getting into my Gi now.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:45

        Gi! That’s pretty cool.

      • 65 Heartafire April 29, 2016 at 14:58

        Gi whiz, I love ju jitsu (sp?)

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:40

        What’s sp mean?

      • 67 Heartafire May 2, 2016 at 14:05

        it means Im not that good at spelling…

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:57

        *laughing lots* Yeah. Same here. Why are words so hard to spell? DAdblame them all.

      • 69 Heartafire May 3, 2016 at 13:27

        It’s a consipiracy…Webster…grrrrr.

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:06

        We should dig him up and thrash him.

      • 71 Heartafire May 4, 2016 at 14:54

        laughs! you dig I’ll trash!

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:08

        Haha. Okay! But you do have the fun part.

      • 73 Heartafire May 5, 2016 at 14:30

        I can dig that.

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:24

        Haha. Let’s dig deeper.

      • 75 Heartafire May 5, 2016 at 22:34

        We may need to!

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:36

        Let’s do it, then.

      • 77 Heartafire May 6, 2016 at 19:55

        onward…no going back now.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:33

        Can’t I go back for my teddy?

      • 79 Heartafire May 9, 2016 at 17:38

        No. I said no going back. Geesh!

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 15:56

        But can’t I break the rule, the sudden?

      • 81 Heartafire May 10, 2016 at 15:57

        Ok, just this once. I know how you get without your Teddy.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:14

        I get so cranky, don’t I?

      • 83 Heartafire May 10, 2016 at 16:16

        You need a soothing lunch of arugula on the way back…for the teddy.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke May 11, 2016 at 16:29

        He might fight against eating such stuff, I tell you. Might even get cranky!

  10. 85 Debbie April 19, 2016 at 14:18

    That mongoose is a beast, isn’t he? Look at how he keeps going after that wretched cobra — *high fives the mongoose*

    Poor Professor. Just when I thought you’d escaped, you’re back in jail. Sigh. They must have something interesting going on to keep you returning. What is it? Good food? And no, not that spinach stuff. Oh, I know — probably the fighting, right?!

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

      Now, now. You must admit Cobras are like the coolest beats you’ve ever seen. Or really close, at least.

      *laughs* I don’t like it at all! It just seems the place where I end up lots of the time. You know. It is better than getting executed.

  11. 87 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member April 19, 2016 at 14:00

    See. Never bring a sword to a gunfight.

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:30

      Unless you’re a super cool ninja who can block bullets with your katana.

      • 89 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member April 20, 2016 at 17:48

        Yeah, but you can’t. And neither can anyone else.

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:17

        I once saw a dude…

      • 91 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member April 22, 2016 at 16:20

        Nope.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:37

        Yup.

  12. 93 Tosha Michelle April 19, 2016 at 13:46

    Don’t forget to do the “Jailhouse Rock” while you await your Doomsday. Might as well go out rocking.

    • 94 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:29

      Yes, yes! Like Elvis. But I don’t know if I can swing my hips like he does.

      • 95 Tosha Michelle April 20, 2016 at 12:47

        I know what you mean. I could try but I’d probably end up breaking something. I hope you’re having a wonderful morning.

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:51

        I am! Hope you are as well. Breaking something. That’s just capital. Breaking is fun, you know.

      • 97 Tosha Michelle April 20, 2016 at 13:08

        Yeah! It can be cathartic.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:00

        Does cathartic cause cancer?

      • 99 Tosha Michelle April 21, 2016 at 13:03

        No, but it might prevent high blood pressure. Note, I have no proof of this

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:32

        High blood pressure. Isn’t that caused by drinking ice water?

      • 101 Tosha Michelle April 21, 2016 at 13:39

        Warm or cold in those with nervous system failure that’s why we should just break things be it a leg or chair. Signed, the nerdy, weird one

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:14

        *laughs* Let’s break all the trees, then!

      • 103 Tosha Michelle April 25, 2016 at 13:43

        That’s just wrong! Haha

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:20

        I think you could be right. But then again, the professor is always wrong.

      • 105 Tosha Michelle April 26, 2016 at 14:15

        There’s rightness in admitting your wrongness.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:04

        Dadblameit. I think you’re right.

      • 107 Tosha Michelle April 27, 2016 at 12:16

        Yay me!

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:20

        And throw in a yay for me, please!

      • 109 Tosha Michelle April 28, 2016 at 13:25

        Yay!

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

        I think I shall say yay all day now.

      • 111 Tosha Michelle April 28, 2016 at 13:43

        Yay! ;)

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:47

        *laughing lots*

      • 113 Tosha Michelle April 29, 2016 at 13:52

        Yay! ;) Dear Lord!

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 14:00

        Now I’m yay-ed out. Almost. Oh dear. I’m so old now.

      • 115 Tosha Michelle April 29, 2016 at 14:03

        I’m yayed out too. We can be old together. Pull up your rocking chair and we’ll reminisce about the days of yay. Screw that. I’m yaying to the grave. So long, Grandpa. HA-HA

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:38

        *laughs* Wait! If you’re going to do that, I shall too. None will say the professor went to the grave un-yaying!

      • 117 Tosha Michelle May 2, 2016 at 14:00

        Yay!!! ;)

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:57

        I think I should just bow, the sudden. *bows*

      • 119 Tosha Michelle May 3, 2016 at 13:08

        Yay!!! ;) off to expand my vocabulary ;)

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:05

        Yes, would you please learn a few more words for me too? Thanks bunches and a hoot.

      • 121 Tosha Michelle May 4, 2016 at 13:38

        You’re welcome. I’ve been studying the Urban Dictionary like crazy. ;)

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 12:59

        I’ve got to get me one of those.

      • 123 Tosha Michelle May 5, 2016 at 17:36

        Totes, bro

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:27

        Now…what does totes mean?

      • 125 Tosha Michelle May 5, 2016 at 22:13

        Totally

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:35

        Totes.

  13. 127 FictionFan April 19, 2016 at 13:44

    Wait! Wait! Prince Beef has a velvet coat??? How is it possible that you have omitted this crucial piece of information for sooooooooooo long?!?!? This changes everything!! Tell Gertrude and The Toad to keep their grubby hands off my velvet Prince! (Hmm… just before I make this decision final, perhaps you should tell me a little more about his hairdo, though – pigtails are a definite no-no! On the other hand, should he happen to have a kiss-curl… *starry eyes*) I shall look so good in a Princess frock (I imagine it being much like Giselle’s, don’t you?) enhanced by the Diamond of Drake!

    By the way, wasn’t my Schwarzy just amazingly heroic?? He’s wonderful! Do let him know that even when I’m the Princess, he’ll still be my sweeite pumpkin pie…

    *sighs*… and don’t flirt with The Toad in the jail cell…

      You are going to need a nap after all of this exercise…

      • 129 FictionFan April 19, 2016 at 16:18

        Keeping the Professor in order is a demanding job, true enough…

      • 130 Susan P April 19, 2016 at 19:06

        ’tis true.

    • 131 L. Marie April 19, 2016 at 16:52

      I am rooting for you to get the prince!

      • 132 FictionFan April 19, 2016 at 22:05

        You shall receive a special invite to my first Princessly ball!

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

        What’s one of those?

      • 134 FictionFan April 20, 2016 at 19:57

        You won’t be there – firstly, only dancers allowed and secondly, my sweet little Princikins has banished you to a dungeon remember? Too bad, ‘cos there’ll be lots of cashews…

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

        But…weren’t you going to bust me out? And maybe I’ll escape and cause mayham.

    • 136 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:28

      I thought he should have one. So I gave him mine. Just for kicks, you see. Well, it’s not pigtails. It’s sorta…well…longish. And floppy. Like one of those dogs, see. Goodness me. I think you’re in danger of fainting. Where’s Tuppence with the antidote?

      Oh no. I’ll be forced to tell him how you betrayed him for a velvet coat. Imagine how that’ll make him feel! Bet he’ll be cranky and mean and cranky about it. Then again, it is Schwarz, so maybe not.

      She’s got funny ears.

      • 137 FictionFan April 20, 2016 at 19:35

        Yours?!? Oh no, that will never do! You must take it back immediately and give him one of his own – a burgundy one, I think. Ooh, a Prince in velvet who looks like a floppy puppy!!! *looks nervously over shoulder* Tell me, is he a good dancer? *squelches off resignedly to get towel*

        Ooh, you’re so mean!! Tell ya what, chickit, get Schwarzy a velvet coat too – that’ll solve the problem! A royal blue one!! Oooh, wouldn’t that just make him the cuddliest thing ever? The Prince wouldn’t get a look-in… hmm! Except that he does have the Diamond of Drake. Choices are so hard! Perhaps Schwarzy could steal it for me… (though hint to him that I prefer rubies, would you? Thanks.)

        *gasps* Don’t be silly! Toads don’t have ears!

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:22

        But he’s a prince. Should I thieve it? You don’t approve of my thieving. Oh, he’s such a fabulous dancer. You will love him, haha. I could set you up, if you’d like. He might have you over for dinner or something like that. He does wear heels, tho. Hope you don’t mind too much.

        All velvet coats? I can’t take it, I tell you! Velvet isn’t that fab. I refuse to wear one again. I’m rebelling. I’m rioting. I’m rampaging. Down with velvet, up with Mars! (How’s that? Pretty cool, huh?) You prefer rubies to diamonds?! Me too. But I thought you’d want emeralds…

        Oh yes they do! *continues listening to music with his ears*

      • 139 FictionFan April 21, 2016 at 16:00

        Well, you wouldn’t be thieving it since it was yours in the first place! Heels can be nice – especially if he’s a flamenco dancer! But I forgot – it can never be! Since I’m perpetually barred from the Punchy Lands and long distance relationships never work. He’ll just have to marry Clara after all.

        Hmm – I do like Mars nearly as much as velvet, it’s true, but you’d look a bit silly wearing Mars! No, I recognise your right to protest, but I overrule you and insist on you wearing velvet on a regular basis!! Emeralds would be most acceptable too – how about a nice mix!

        I wonder what kind of music toads like…

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:25

        Now that is a point. Now, why are you barred from tpl? Why is this? I don’t believe it, the sudden, see. *laughs* Long distance relationships sound funny, I must admit. Goodness. Giving up the prince just like that.

        *laughing lots* Well, at least you recognized my right to protest. Oh well. Can I protest again? Perhaps I’ll win this time, see. Okay, but none of the blue ones, tho.

        Kenny G, of course. And LZ.

      • 141 FictionFan April 25, 2016 at 16:20

        You can protest as often as you like – see, isn’t that kind of me? But you won’t win! OK, I’ll keep all the blue ones then. And the red ones and the green ones. You can have the purple ones.

        Really? No wonder they end up looking like that…

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:31

        The purple ones? Hmm. Okay. I’ll take them. And hang them on my wall with all the papers and stuff.

  14. 143 PorterGirl April 19, 2016 at 13:29

    Well, well, well! That was very dramatic and exciting. I was quite literally on the edge of my seat. A fight is a fight is a fight, of course – but a fight with two great reasons to join in is a prince among fights! I feel a bit sorry for the ladies, no doubt they were looking forward to becoming princesses, with the little crowns and whatnot. But they probably had a lucky escape. The best thing to do with Prince Beef is to eat him. Now – you have been captured more times than I have had hot dinners (okay – maybe not that many times) I am surprised you don’t have your own personal cell in the prison!

    • 144 Susan P April 19, 2016 at 14:13

      Yes, what she said.

      • 145 PorterGirl April 19, 2016 at 14:16

        Great minds think alike! Or fools rarely differ…

    • 146 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:27

      Well, both ladies couldn’t get the crown, after all. And it looks like Clara didn’t want it. She’s a beast, mind you. I think I’ve been in just about every jail cell since the dawn of time, in truth. *nods* Hot dinners! Cold are better, I say.

      • 147 PorterGirl April 20, 2016 at 12:33

        After our discussion about princesses I am not surprised she didn’t want the crown! I have sort of forgotten what is happening now, hopefully there will be another fight along soon.
        All dinners are wonderful, if you don’t want the hot ones please do send them my way my dear chap!

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke April 20, 2016 at 12:50

        Yes, I know. Things are sorta swirling around and whatnot. So TPL-ish. But good news, I’ve decided not to go after the katana again. For the minute, that is.

        Even the yucketh ones?

      • 149 PorterGirl April 20, 2016 at 13:24

        I know – that is what makes TPL so fabulously awesome!! It works my brain, you see. That katana is nothing but trouble. You should have your own one especially made. But don’t tell anyone, or they will try to steal it, no doubt.
        Even those – Terry might like them.

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke April 21, 2016 at 13:02

        I have a whole collection of katanas. But, I was practicing my thieving. Hector and I used to argue all the time about which was better: a katana or a short sword. I think he always won our arguments.

      • 151 PorterGirl April 22, 2016 at 07:44

        I hear that the collection is outstanding, but there’s always room for one more, right? It is best not to arguing to fervently with Hector, I find. He has a stabby nature.

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke April 25, 2016 at 13:35

        He does, yes. But he was sweet, you know. You would’ve loved him.

      • 153 PorterGirl April 25, 2016 at 14:02

        I dare say I would. But was he as sweet as a honeycomb, hmm?

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:21

        Oh yes. Sweeter than honey from a comb.

      • 155 PorterGirl April 26, 2016 at 13:25

        Well – that is the sweetest thing imaginable, wouldn’t you say so?

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke April 26, 2016 at 13:37

        I would think so. At least, that’s what his wife thought. But we all doubted it.

      • 157 PorterGirl April 26, 2016 at 13:41

        *nods* me too, the sudden.

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 11:58

        He was a tiger, I bet.

      • 159 PorterGirl April 27, 2016 at 12:01

        No doubt.

      • 160 Professor VJ Duke April 27, 2016 at 12:13

        Not many doubts?

      • 161 PorterGirl April 27, 2016 at 12:15

        Zero doubts.

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:18

        That is good. Doubts are awful dadblameries.

      • 163 PorterGirl April 28, 2016 at 16:46

        *nods* Quite!

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:56

        *bows*
