Now we come to an interest: Punchy Murdoch, Kirk’s alleged father. It is said that Punchy Murdoch and Kirk look exactly the same—except for Punchy Murdoch’s long white beard which reaches close to his ankles.
Some Punchy Landers have drawn specific conclusions from the fact that Punchy Murdoch and Kirk have never been seen together. But rumors are a nasty business, and should be avoided. I’ll leave you to come to your own conclusions on the matter.
However, Punchy Murdoch does afford Kirk his authority over the other Punchies. Without that authority, some Punchies (no names mentioned here) might revolt.
Thank Punchy for Kirk’s father! Maybe. But then again, maybe not.
