Why Conor McGregor is like Tom Brady

professor speaks

Okay.

So, this professor just thought he should say a few words about it.

Not that it matters much one way or another.

But this fellow:

011316-ufc-Conor-McGregor-pi-mp.vresize.1200.675.high.25

Conor McGregor

Has something very interesting in common with this fellow:

what-s-at-stake-for-tom-brady-and-the-patriots-in-the-afc-championship-game

Tom Brady (with blurry background)

You see, both fellows bucked authority and fought the bad guys. McGregor, the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and Dana White; Brady, the NFL (National Football League) and Roger Goodell.

And this is the funny part, see.

While that looks grand and all that, here’s the thing: It’s all a setup.

In truth, that’s true

The NFL created deflategate for publicity; McGregor said he was going to retire for publicity. See, and many sees, it had nothing to do with the fact that footballs were deflated a few PSI, and it had nothing to do with not wanting to do any more press conferences.

Which means, McGregor and Brady did not buck authority.

That’s right.

They followed authority.

Like mooses in the field.

Following authority

Following authority

So, they’re alike because they follow authority not rebel against it.

What a thing.

I did not see that conclusion coming myself.

Moral: If you’re going to buck authority, don’t do it because you’re following authority. That’s just messed up. And the professor is wise to you, too.

Okay, that’s the professor’s conspiracy theory for today.

PVJ out.

    You’ve left me quite confused. Sure hope the lesson caught the ears of the intended one, Sir. Best of luck with the stalking moose headed your way.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:03

      I was just ranting, really. Rats. Just cause I’m a pats fan, see. *rips up the carpet*

      • 3 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2016 at 14:42

        *watches and giggles* I know that guy..

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:40

        And you’re probably responsible for the carpet ripping. *nods*

      • 5 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 9, 2016 at 22:18

        Me? Responsible? …as if…

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:09

        Maybe a bit?

      • 7 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister May 12, 2016 at 14:26

        Hoping so

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

        Okay, then, you are.

  2. 9 John W. Howell May 1, 2016 at 22:47

    Good theory. Bucking something that authorities want you to buck is not bucking at all. Bucking would be not bucking.

    • 10 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:51

      Quite right. You know, the more I think on it, the more I realize the art of bucking has been lost. Time for us to teach a class, Mr. John.

      • 11 John W. Howell May 2, 2016 at 15:27

        Title of the class: To Bucking Authority: The Ups and Downs.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 12:58

        Haha. This is good. After all, we must discuss the downs of a thing as well as the ups. Well done, Mr. Howell, well done.

      • 13 John W. Howell May 3, 2016 at 21:09

        The opening line of the Professor’s lecture could be, “To buck or not to buck. That is the question.”

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:22

        *laughs* I wonder how many students would think about that differently…

      • 15 John W. Howell May 4, 2016 at 14:01

        Yes well, it is up to the Professor to warp the young minds any way he wants.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:00

        I’m always warping young minds.

      • 17 John W. Howell May 5, 2016 at 18:09

        Good idea for the young ones to be warped.

      • 18 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:28

        It’s better than what’s going on now.

      • 19 John W. Howell May 5, 2016 at 21:55

        Yes. Give me a warped mind over a millennial any day

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:29

        I’m definitely an owner of a warped mind.

      • 21 John W. Howell May 6, 2016 at 22:51

        Need to share the warp.

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:35

        *does it begrudgingly*

      • 23 John W. Howell May 9, 2016 at 20:43

        Thanks

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:08

        I need two thanks.

      • 25 John W. Howell May 10, 2016 at 19:21

        Thank, Thanks

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke May 11, 2016 at 16:35

        That’s good. I feel more spicy now.

  3. 27 Simply Skeptical April 27, 2016 at 23:08

    I don’t believe I’m alone in saying: What? And oh yes, please don’t repeat that…

    • 28 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:30

      Hey! Why…I ought to slug you!

  4. 29 TheCrazyBagLady April 27, 2016 at 18:02

    The professor is wise and something to think about. I wont take your word on it though. That’s because I’m not conor nor Tom. Poor moose got roped into this whole conspiracy!

    • 30 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:30

      *laughs* Yes, I just brought the moose right in there. Now, why won’t you take my word for it? *taps professorish toe*

      • 31 TheCrazyBagLady April 30, 2016 at 01:20

        Should I take the professor’s word or make up my own mind?

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:45

        Um…professor’s word?

      • 33 TheCrazyBagLady May 2, 2016 at 23:28

        We will see!

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:04

        Goodness. Look at that. You don’t trust the professor!

      • 35 TheCrazyBagLady May 4, 2016 at 20:22

        I need to get to know the professor before I gain his trust!

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:16

        Well…come to the chat tomorrow!

      • 37 TheCrazyBagLady May 5, 2016 at 13:29

        But we are chatting now!

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 21:19

        That’s true…okay, then. Would you prefer an orange or red lollipop?

      • 39 TheCrazyBagLady May 5, 2016 at 21:50

        I prefer orange and you?

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:28

        Always red or cherry!

  5. 41 desertdweller29 April 27, 2016 at 15:53

    Befuddlement! You have not let this deflate-a-gate go, have you?! I can see you’re still sore about it Professor. And I don’t blame you. For one’s idol to be revealed as wicked! 😆

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:28

      A wicked idol is fine…but see, there’s so much proof that deflate gate was a setup. Not Brady’s fault. In fact, I’ll take the blame. Put it one me. Hampering with footballs is something I’d definitely do. (The colts were just sore they lost by so much.)

      • 43 desertdweller29 April 28, 2016 at 15:28

        Yeah, probably. I think deflateagate just sounds cool. I think somewhere, someone wanted to make it a thingy. The Professor is NOT to blame! I won’t allow you to throw yourself upon the sword! However brave it might be…

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:50

        Do I strike you as brave? I used to think I was, see. Then, I sat down on my bed and had a few thinks. I thought: When was the last time I was brave? I couldn’t think on one. I think I’m really an orc, see.

      • 45 desertdweller29 April 30, 2016 at 17:54

        Hahha! You’re very brave indeed, professor. I wouldn’t associate with a cowardly professor…

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

        *sigh of relief* And you must come chat Friday, you know.

  6. 47 FictionFan April 27, 2016 at 15:31

    Totally Britishly befuddled, I fear. But if I could just mention to Mr McGregor – No, Mr McGregor! Seriously! Just no!

    Does this mean Tom is to be removed from my heroes list?

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:28

      I know…I just had to rail and whine a bit. You don’t like McGregor? He’s such a braggart, you wouldn’t believe it. What do you think of his…err…body art?

      No, no! Don’t do that. Why would you do that? Don’t do that! Goodness.

      • 49 FictionFan April 28, 2016 at 15:49

        Hmm… without wishing to be rude in any way, I think he proves conclusively that some men have evolved less than others! From the moustache down, really…

        Well, I kinda thought you were saying he wasn’t one of the good guys after all? *even more befuddled face*

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:52

        *tries not to laugh* You just don’t like his chest art…do you?

        Well, but…you never like good guys! Why, look at your list. Full of the naughty ones!!

      • 51 FictionFan April 29, 2016 at 16:34

        “Art” is not the word that springs to mind… *shudders*

        My Darby is not naughty!! Which is a pity, now I come to think of it…

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:41

        But you see, it’s actually some type of bird, he’s got on there!

        Oh he is.

      • 53 FictionFan May 2, 2016 at 18:12

        Is it? I thought it was supposed to be a dragon or something. Hideous, whatever it is…

        He is?? *eyes shine* Oh good!

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:00

        Does that mean I can’t get one? *kicks the dirt*

        And so is Nate Diaz. He’s the chap that beat McGregor, ’cause I know you’re so curious about it.

      • 55 FictionFan May 3, 2016 at 16:04

        You promised me you would never, ever get a tattoo! *stern face*

        I’m getting too frightened to google the people you mention any more. So you’ll just have to tell me who Nate is…

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:16

        Did I? Haha. Okay…

        He’s just the UFC fighter who beat Conor. Yeah, don’t google him. He’s even scarier looking. Promise. Google Gru. That’s me.

      • 57 FictionFan May 4, 2016 at 16:06

        Hmm…

        But… but… he’s bald!!! And bald men don’t have kiss-curls!

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:13

        Seriously, tho, I wouldn’t ever get one.

        Well…true…but he’s super cool! That’s what I want to be when I grow up.

      • 59 FictionFan May 5, 2016 at 22:01

        Unless it became fashionable… *chuckles*

        What a relief that’s so unlikely ever to happen then… *runs off*

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke May 6, 2016 at 18:34

        Not even! And it sorta seems like it is fashionable over here.

        Rats. Had such high hopes too.

      • 61 FictionFan May 7, 2016 at 01:02

        Oh, I thought we were talking about kiss-curls! Well, I’m delighted to hear you will never get a tattoo – fashion’s fine so long as it’s reversible! *remembers her poodle-like hairdo and sighs with relief*

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke May 9, 2016 at 15:38

        You had a sandy hairdo? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

      • 63 FictionFan May 9, 2016 at 18:04

        *tries not to laugh* I’ll have you know it was the height of fashion, sir! Especially dyed blonde!! Admittedly it was a chemical hazard, but I was gorgeous!!! *stomps off*

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke May 10, 2016 at 16:06

        I’m sure you were!! But…dying is so silly and all that. Natural is better. Like pine trees. They’re completely natural, mind you.

      • 65 FictionFan May 10, 2016 at 19:59

        Yeah, come back and tell me that once you’ve developed your crown of splendour!! And why would I want my hair to be green??

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke May 11, 2016 at 16:40

        Because you could call yourself an evergreen! Which is sorta cool. I wish I had white hair. Imagine how cool I’d look!

      • 67 Nicholas Warren--MPS staff member April 29, 2016 at 15:29

        Everyone loves McGregor.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:41

        Except…the dude that chocked him out.

  7. 69 Freakishly Fangirlish April 27, 2016 at 15:22

    I’m a total rebel! *sits in bed and reads book past midnight* a rebel nerd, that is… XD

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:27

      Hey, any kind of rebel is super duper cool. *gives Em the rebel award*

      • 71 Freakishly Fangirlish April 28, 2016 at 15:54

        The Nerdiest Rebel in The Rebel Nerds Society

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:53

        I think that might win a double award.

  8. 73 Heartafire April 27, 2016 at 14:19

    The thing is the bucks in the field don’t see the Lion over there stalking in the bushes (probably because of the blur) and fail to follow authority, the alert buck that’s yelling “run away cause ,there’s a lion in the bushes” .

    • 74 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:27

      *laughs* Why, Hollie, don’t the bucks just fight the lion? That’d be something, you must admit.

      • 75 Heartafire April 28, 2016 at 13:28

        They are bigger and in large groups…it could work. Gotta gaurd the neck though, lions like neck meat. Omg, did I say that?

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:33

        You did say that!! *screams in horror* How dost thou know?

      • 77 Heartafire April 28, 2016 at 13:36

        National Geographic, they said it first! Its on them.

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

        We should go get them, then.

      • 79 Heartafire April 29, 2016 at 14:59

        Lets, I’m tired of them stalking those animals in their little jeep, looking all cool in their khaki’s and fancy cameras.

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

        Me too! Time to hunt.

  9. 81 Susan P April 27, 2016 at 14:18

    It is like why fire engines are red.

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

      *laughs* Bril. And pegged. How did you figure it out?

      • 83 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:29

        It’s a gift. What did you think it was?

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:33

        A curse, maybe?

      • 85 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:34

        Those are reserved for enemy aliens.

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

        I think I could be one of those.

      • 87 Susan P April 30, 2016 at 20:02

        What planet?

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:50

        Probably Geonosis.

      • 89 Susan P May 3, 2016 at 14:16

        But why? It is so, well, you know?

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:10

        Red and hot? that’s cool!

      • 91 Susan P May 11, 2016 at 18:02

        The principle of opposites.

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2016 at 01:48

        Red is always hot.

      • 93 Susan P May 12, 2016 at 13:11

        Like hot peppers?

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke May 13, 2016 at 14:10

        Exactly

      • 95 Susan P May 13, 2016 at 14:15

        But why?

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke May 14, 2016 at 22:28

        Why? Well…because!

      • 97 Susan P May 15, 2016 at 19:57

        You need to write a 20 page essay explain yourself on it.

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 12:41

        Could you imagine me writing something that long? Imagine the…craziness.

      • 99 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 13:45

        *will sit here till you do*

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

        *paints a picture*

      • 101 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 19:53

        heats up the chair.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke May 17, 2016 at 12:45

        Chairs are too cold half the time.

      • 103 Susan P May 17, 2016 at 17:42

        I can send you a bear if you like?

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke May 18, 2016 at 13:11

        A candy one?

      • 105 Susan P May 19, 2016 at 14:15

        Gummy. Is that all right?

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

        Absolutely!!

      • 107 Susan P May 20, 2016 at 19:02

        *dumps 10 pounds of cherry gummy bears*

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke May 23, 2016 at 13:21

        I am now covered in gummy bears.

      • 109 Susan P May 24, 2016 at 13:18

        Start eating. Make sure it isn’t the kind that they slip vitamins in.

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:09

        Like vitamin L for instance

      • 111 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 13:14

        What kind of vitamin is that?

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:21

        I’m not sure. BE Taylor came up with it

      • 113 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 14:15

        *looks*

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2016 at 14:07

        At least I think he did.

      • 115 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 14:22

        stares

      • 116 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2016 at 14:29

        *hides*

      • 117 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 18:21

        I see you.

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke June 6, 2016 at 14:47

        *hides better*

      • 119 Susan P June 6, 2016 at 16:39

        Stares at the peeking hole

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

        I need something to make me disappear, the sudden.

      • 121 Susan P June 7, 2016 at 14:07

        Stares in the cracks.

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

        Dadblameit!

      • 123 Susan P June 8, 2016 at 13:52

        You could get me off your back if you played some awesome music.

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:00

        What would you like to hear?

      • 125 Susan P June 9, 2016 at 18:18

        Something that brings healing.

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

        Same here. I’m searching!

      • 127 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 13:37

        Got anything yet?

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

        No…suggestions?

      • 129 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 17:49

        That is your job.

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

        I’ve retired, you know.

      • 131 Susan P June 14, 2016 at 12:52

        Is that a problem for people who keep getting tired?

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

        You know, it might be.

      • 133 Susan P June 16, 2016 at 14:09

        You should appoint someone to be in charge of it.

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke June 16, 2016 at 14:43

        I think you’re right

      • 135 Susan P June 17, 2016 at 21:33

        Do you have anyone in mind?

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke June 21, 2016 at 13:15

        A few, maybe, see

      • 137 Susan P June 21, 2016 at 17:56

        Why? Why wait?

      • 138 Susan P April 28, 2016 at 13:37

        Can you tell the difference?

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

        I must admit, I’m pretty bad at it.

      • 140 Susan P April 30, 2016 at 19:59

        Practice makes perfect.

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

        But isn’t the professor perfect?

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

        Must not say it…

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

        *whispers it*

      • 144 Susan P May 11, 2016 at 17:58

        Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke May 12, 2016 at 01:45

        You’ve thought of something dastardly.

      • 146 Susan P May 12, 2016 at 13:15

        You can’t prov it

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

        Why yes I can!

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

        Then do so, sir.

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

        *proves it*

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

        Waiting….

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

        But I already did it!

      • 152 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 13:49

        You missed some important things. You can’t overlook that.

      • 153 Professor VJ Duke May 16, 2016 at 18:55

        But I can! And will. *nods*

      • 154 Susan P May 16, 2016 at 19:50

        Did you see the important things police over there?

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

        Do they arrest people?

      • 156 Susan P May 17, 2016 at 17:46

        Indeed they do unless you slip them a C

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

        Huh. Strange, I say.

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

        What is not strange in this blog?

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

        Hahahahaha. Me?

      • 160 Susan P May 20, 2016 at 19:04

        *mumbles in her purse*

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

        You’re getting a taser! *runs*

      • 162 Susan P May 24, 2016 at 13:15

        That was easy.

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:06

        Humph

      • 164 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 13:18

        What?

      • 165 Professor VJ Duke May 25, 2016 at 13:23

        Double humph

      • 166 Susan P May 25, 2016 at 14:13

        Throws dandelion seeds.

      • 167 Professor VJ Duke May 26, 2016 at 14:05

        Dandelions are already out of season, dadblameit.

      • 168 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 14:25

        *watches them fluff around* What did you say?

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

        Well, dadblameit! Up here they are!

      • 170 Susan P May 26, 2016 at 18:18

        I heard there was a fine for spreading these dadblamed things.

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

        How much?

      • 172 Susan P June 6, 2016 at 16:43

        Seven canteloup.

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke June 7, 2016 at 13:18

        That’s a deal.

      • 174 Susan P June 7, 2016 at 14:05

        Your time to cook.

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

        I’m going to cook chicken and beans, like Salami would.

      • 176 Susan P June 8, 2016 at 13:55

        It sounds good. When is lunch?

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

        You just missed it by an inch!

      • 178 Susan P June 9, 2016 at 18:14

        You were to bring dessert.

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:33

        But I decided last moment we all needed to go on a diet. Yes, I forgot.

      • 180 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 13:35

        Fruit cups make good desserts.

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:45

        And healthy too.

      • 182 Susan P June 10, 2016 at 17:52

        Cover it with whip.

      • 183 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:49

        cream?

      • 184 Susan P June 14, 2016 at 12:47

        Whipped.

  10. 185 L. Marie April 27, 2016 at 13:56

    Um . . . makes sense in a roundabout way.

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

      That’s the professor’s mind for you. How badly off am I?

  11. 187 Chris White April 27, 2016 at 13:52

    I see your point exactly, Professor. Personally speaking, I make it a point never to buck authority in the month of April. It makes the other eleven that much more interesting. All the bucking best. Kris.

    • 188 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:23

      Well, now. What is the proper month for bucking authority, good sir?

      • 189 Chris White April 29, 2016 at 13:56

        Well, I tend to buck authority when the wind is blowing from the southwest and the sap is rising.

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

        Now, how do you know when the sap is rising? I’ve alwyas wondered, see.

  12. 191 Amanda Lyle April 27, 2016 at 13:27

    My head hurts…. 😳

    • 192 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:23

      I think it’s my fault, isn’t it? Here. Have a cherry sucker.

  13. 193 walt walker April 27, 2016 at 13:06

    The logic of this is making my head spin in both good ways and side ways. Also, makes me want to ride a moose.

    • 194 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:23

      Ride a moose! Now. Do you have a moose saddle?

      • 195 walt walker April 28, 2016 at 14:39

        No saddle, no moose, but I do have an old timey horn that goes ahh-ooooga for when other mooses get in my way.

      • 196 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:49

        Now. Do mooses often get in your way? If so, that’s such an interest. I mean. Look, it means they chase you.

      • 197 walt walker April 29, 2016 at 14:08

        Occasionally I will join large parties of moose riders, for moose riding. That’s when I need the horn.

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

        I’m impressed. Would you invite me along next time, please? And you must be in the TPL chat on Friday, sir.

      • 199 walt walker May 3, 2016 at 18:04

        Yes, next moose ride, I’ll swing by and pick you up. The chat room thingy sounds fun but I probably won’t be available at that time due, but we’ll see (I will be at work). If not, maybe next time.

      • 200 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:19

        You must! Oh rats. I understand. No worries. Getting all the time zones to hook up is maddening. If this goes well, we’ll schedule an evening one for the American crowd. Make sure to bring the boomerang when you come.

  14. 201 PorterGirl April 27, 2016 at 13:00

    I have no idea what is going on in this post but I like the picture of the two creatures in the field.

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

      Well…it’s… *laughs* Sorry. What think thee of McGregor?

      • 203 PorterGirl April 28, 2016 at 16:50

        He looks like the sort of chap who slurps his soup.

      • 204 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:57

        *laughing* Doesn’t he? I might do that, too, tho.

      • 205 PorterGirl April 30, 2016 at 08:06

        I might, too. It is the sign of a warrior, I say.

      • 206 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:47

        A hungry warrior who doesn’t have time for manners. Capital!

      • 207 PorterGirl May 3, 2016 at 06:14

        Sounds like quite the wonderful thing, I say!

      • 208 Professor VJ Duke May 3, 2016 at 13:05

        Hector. Sounds like Hector.

      • 209 PorterGirl May 3, 2016 at 14:16

        Just like Hector! My favourite fellow.

      • 210 Professor VJ Duke May 4, 2016 at 13:10

        I wonder if he had a black curly beard…

      • 211 PorterGirl May 4, 2016 at 20:07

        Oh imagine that!

      • 212 Professor VJ Duke May 5, 2016 at 13:16

        Maybe a bit.

  15. 213 Alastair Savage April 27, 2016 at 12:54

    The buck stops here.
    I always liked that 1980s Patriots strip best. They did look like a rabbit in the headlights in Superbowl XX though. In that game it wouldn’t have mattered how much air was in the football.

    • 214 Professor VJ Duke April 28, 2016 at 13:21

      Now, now. That was before Belichick and Brady, mind you. That duo could beat any team in the history of the NFL! *stands by the statement unto many deaths*

      • 215 Alastair Savage April 28, 2016 at 16:03

        I reckon Joe Montana and the 49ers could have taken them. Of course, they would have had an advantage because when Joe Montana was 30, Tom Brady was 9.

      • 216 Professor VJ Duke April 29, 2016 at 13:54

        *laughs* Wasn’t that Brady’s hero, too? Still, tho, Mr. Savage. The Pats are so spicy. Do you have a fav team?

      • 217 Alastair Savage April 30, 2016 at 15:38

        Not any more because you can’t see the NFL in Europe these days but I did like the Bills back in the day, although they always got thrashed in the big game, didn’t they?

      • 218 Professor VJ Duke May 2, 2016 at 13:48

        Haha. Yeah, they sorta did. Which was hilarious, you must admit.
