Why Things End Abruptly

It is with great dread that I regret to inform you of a thing.

The Sweet Cherry Incident, I fear, probably won’t have an end.

You see, the rest of the story sorta goes Top Secret, and I’ve been forbidden–by General Smallhoover– to recount anymore of it.

Therefore, therefore.

In other words, this professor should probably comply with the generals demands–if I want to keep my ears.

I can tell you, though, that I lived, and that the sweet cherries turned out to be a deadly poison, designed on Honi Planet, and designed to wipe out the Punchy Lands.

(Honi Planet has hated The Punchy Lands for some time.)

The good news is: the plan failed. #professorwins

Because of the professor, of course. #professorisabeast

Anyways and some, TPL should be back online somewhat this following week. With a new story.

Until then–I loves you all muches!

Extra points if you can name this beast:

    I had a sliver of cheery cheese cake!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:38

      How was it?

      • 3 Ms. Vee January 11, 2017 at 23:44

        Very good! Tasted like more.😘

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:45

        You should’ve ate the whole pie!

      • 5 Ms. Vee January 16, 2017 at 01:48

        Oh no! Then I’d gain weight.

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:49

        That’s why you have to run 10 miles a day, tho

      • 7 Ms. Vee January 16, 2017 at 01:52

        LOL, That is far to much for me!

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2017 at 00:06

        Me too! I’d die, I think.

      • 9 Ms. Vee January 18, 2017 at 00:53

        Oh Professor!

  2. 10 jthenovice January 8, 2017 at 20:51

    Some sort of camo fish….?

    • 11 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:35

      I think you could be right. Poisonous tho?

      • 12 jthenovice January 9, 2017 at 23:03

        Oh, maybe. I suppose there’s a way to find out…… ;-)

      • 13 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:38

        Is tennis hard?

  3. 14 Debbie January 8, 2017 at 15:08

    Well, I’m sorry we can’t lean the ending for the sweet cherries, but I agree you need your ears. How is a musician supposed to hear without ears (and I’m not talking about poor Beethoven, his was a unique talent!)

    I think that creature trying to camoflage himself might be named Rocky. He looks like he could be a prize fighter, given the right opponent, Probably plays for the Pats and is used to winning all the time anyway!

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:35

      Beethoven. Poor fellow. I think he was quite mad, you know. Like a horse without a tail, maybe. I must keep the ears.

      *laughs* Love that, of course. Specifically that you didn’t say anything about cheating…

      • 16 Debbie January 9, 2017 at 16:39

        Who, me?? Nah, I’ll just keep my thoughts to myself, good man!

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:34

        That’s because…you’ve changed your mind!

  4. 18 Haylee January 7, 2017 at 12:00

    Could you please refrain from such shocking titles and opening sentences?! Because I get email notifications, I received only the heading and first sentence – I thought you were shutting down everything!! But I can cope with a partially finished story.
    Your little fishy chap is very well camouflaged. If you look closely, there’s quite clearly an evil child-like face riding its back. So I’m naming him Dave Devilfish, who incidentally was a gangster/ world famous poker player from my home town. I’m full of pointless facts!

    • 19 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:32

      *laughing* You know, I’m thinking I’d like this fellow Dave Devilfish. I suppose he’s dead now? Did the cops kill him?

      You know me, shocking titles are tops.

      • 20 Haylee January 9, 2017 at 18:56

        He is dead, I’m afraid. Not sure of the circumstances. Bound to be suspicious. Though maybe it was one big ruse and he’s actually you. You know, because you’re always saying how old you are ;)

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:35

        Oh, right. It’s possible. I mean, I am SOOOOOOOO old, after all. Older than…like double your age, at least.

      • 22 Haylee January 11, 2017 at 20:55

        And today in Opposite Land…
        Try HALF my age!! Unless your soul is old. I’ll accept you’ve been here before.

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:43

        Been there before like 500 times! I wear a mask that makes me look like I’m 9, but I’m not. Which reminds me…are you ever going to make another video? You did promise me, if I recall correctly.

      • 24 Haylee January 16, 2017 at 07:32

        Haha – Why did wearing a mask remind you of my promise (promise is such a strong word…)?!
        I’m stuck for ideas. I’m not as talented as you… take this compliment whilst you can ;)

      • 25 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2017 at 00:08

        *laughs* I’m not sure! It’s how my crazy mind works. Wait…yes you are! And…while I can? What’s that mean! *laughing lots*

      • 26 Haylee January 18, 2017 at 07:49

        Hmmm, I guess that did sound mildly threatening… apologies! Just let it be known that I don’t dish them out with wanton abandon. So, file it away for safe keeping ;)

      • 27 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2017 at 18:58

        Filed away nicely, madam. Now, I won’t say it.

  5. 28 Alastair Savage January 7, 2017 at 09:17

    You’re floundering again, I see.

    • 29 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:31

      *laughing lots* You’re too smart for me, Mr. Savage.

  6. 30 masgautsen January 7, 2017 at 08:02

    Yey!

    • 31 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:30

      Haha. *bows*

  7. 32 walt walker January 7, 2017 at 02:01

    I’m almost insulted that you think I can’t name the beast. It is the Great Beast of The Sea.

    • 33 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:30

      This is what we should bring to DJT’s office, you know.

  8. 34 Jackie January 7, 2017 at 01:23

    I like red cherries but I especially like Rainer cherries.

    • 35 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:30

      Oh! I’ve heard of those. They’re supposed to be amazing. Hi Jackie!

      • 36 Jackie January 10, 2017 at 02:18

        Hi Professor! They are amazing. If you ever get a chance to try them you will see what all the fuss is about.

      • 37 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:38

        I’m going to have to try and find them!

      • 38 Jackie January 11, 2017 at 14:39

        Try looking for them in early summer.

      • 39 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:40

        Like May/june?

      • 40 Jackie January 11, 2017 at 14:41

        Yep!

      • 41 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:35

        *bows*

  9. 42 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 6, 2017 at 20:29

    Pay no mind to those floating rocks breathing at the bottom of the tank. They barely notice anyone. Rude thingies they are. Don’t give up on the cherries. Use them better next time.

    • 43 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:29

      Maybe I should just eat them and die?

      • 44 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 10, 2017 at 23:21

        How about not?

      • 45 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:39

        Imagine the peace, tho!

      • 46 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 12, 2017 at 04:27

        *snarl*

      • 47 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:46

        Now, now. Don’t make me bear spray you!

  10. 48 John W. Howell January 6, 2017 at 20:24

    I knew the cherries were Ju-Ju. That has to be the great slipper fish of New Zealand. (Don’t step on it)

    • 49 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:29

      Haha, you were right. Why not?

      • 50 John W. Howell January 9, 2017 at 19:15

        You’ll squish it. It is not for walking on or wearing.

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:36

        Dadblameit! Not fair, you know.

      • 52 John W. Howell January 11, 2017 at 23:02

        Yes. I know.

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:44

        That doesn’t help.

      • 54 John W. Howell January 16, 2017 at 15:27

        Maybe a margarita then.

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2017 at 00:16

        A cherry one.

      • 56 John W. Howell January 18, 2017 at 01:24

        No way!

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2017 at 18:49

        Why not?

      • 58 John W. Howell January 28, 2017 at 20:04

        Cause

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2017 at 23:39

        Hmm…I don’t accept that.

      • 60 John W. Howell January 31, 2017 at 01:21

        Okay then. BECAUSE!

  11. 61 FictionFan January 6, 2017 at 19:03

    But, as a secret espionage agent I have top-level security clearance, so you can tell me! I won’t tell anyone… except a few dozen of my closest friends. I’d have thought you’d be more than willing to sacrifice your ears for our benefit… nobody sees them under your beanie anyway.

    Extra points?? OK!! I name this beast… Percival! (After all, even flounders deserve names… you know I always read the tags!)

    • 62 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:28

      *laughs* That’s telling too many! I’d likely lose my ears, then. And imagine…no ears…my beanie probably wouldn’t stay on quite right, now would it?

      *laughing* I forgot what it was myself. You win, since you gave it a stunning name.

      • 63 FictionFan January 9, 2017 at 17:15

        It would if you used glue… *nods wisely*

        Yay! I win! *victory dance – gangnam style*

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:34

        Glue is awful. Like the sticky kind?

        Now, now. It’s just one win, after all.

      • 65 FictionFan January 11, 2017 at 15:16

        Well, the unsticky kind wouldn’t be much use, I’m thinking…

        Oh be quiet! Let me savour my victory!!

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke January 16, 2017 at 01:37

        Well, I suppose you have a point there. But it’s a slight one and only counts for a bit.

        *sigh* Are you done yet?

      • 67 FictionFan January 16, 2017 at 16:52

        *sticks out tongue – twice*

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke January 18, 2017 at 00:19

        *laughs* That was so tempting.

  12. 69 HotBottoms January 6, 2017 at 18:55

    Odd glassy flounder. I remember him from Jr. High Prom…

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:27

      Oh dear. Did you date him?

  13. 71 Susan P January 6, 2017 at 17:03

    I was just ready to make some cherry pies. SIGH

    • 72 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:26

      Do it, do it, do it!

  14. 73 Desert Dweller January 6, 2017 at 16:53

    Cherries should never win! They do all sorts of nasty business. They ruin chocolate, spoil lollipops, sweeten cocktails! They’re dastardly creatures. A real menace upon society, I say. But wonderful news, PL is returning with full force! I was afraid cherries attacked you, you know, like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man in the original Ghostbusters. That syrupy goo would be hard to get out of your suspenders…

    I don’t have a clue as to what that creature is! Holly seems certain so I’ll say it’s that toady thingy. But… it looks like the head of a buried seahorse. That can’t be right though… I need a monocle to have a closer look.

    • 74 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:26

      Wait…you can’t rip cherries! Why, they’re fantastic. Just like cashews. In fact, there should be a dish that includes noodles, cashews, and a cherry sauce. Doesn’t that sound remarkable? You know, I’ve never seen Ghostbusters…

      Borrow Walt’s, he won’t mind. That’s actually some sort of salmon or tuna or fish. Which means I win!

  15. 75 Heartafire January 6, 2017 at 16:37

    Thank the Gods, Punchy Land survived! That is clearly a MoRockan toad.

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke January 9, 2017 at 15:24

      Whoa. What’s a MoRockan toad?

      • 77 Heartafire January 9, 2017 at 15:49

        Sometimes they are called Morracan frogs depending on your regional dialect.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke January 11, 2017 at 14:31

        Oh. That’s pretty epic, you know. I want one, the sudden.


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