#not_everyone? – Chapter 7, Act 4, Strip 106

Well, sooner or later somebody was bound to notice. And Mopey probably had the best chance of being that somebody from the start, having been around the Professor the longest.

But if the Professor wasn’t absent, he’d be somewhat relieved that the others forget about him as readily as he tended to forget about Snuka in such situations. It kinda proves that it can happen to anyone, not just Snuka – which is exactly what the Professor told Snuka, without achieving a high level of conviction. He was right after all! But since he is absent, he can’t point that out…which must be the worst part about the whole situation for him. Still not as bad as getting hit in the ‘nads with Gouda for a few decades, but it must sting.

Assuming, of course, that the reasons for the Professor’s absence don’t sting worse. There’s quite a variety of possible reasons, after all, some decidedly more malign than some others…

More on Monday.

  1. So it’s our good Professor Doctor! Are they both his real names? You probably already answered this somewhere, so let’s call it rhetorical.

    Pop quiz: How many people named Doctor can you na… i mean do you know? I can remember three more.

    1. Yeah, it’s come up a couple of times. His birth name is Jason Epiphanes Doctor, Professor is his title, although he holds a few doctorates, as well.

      I’ve got no idea how many fictional people with that surname exist, but I reckon there must be quite a few…can’t think of anyone from the top of my head, but I’m sure I’ve encountered it. As far as real life goes, I don’t know anybody whose surname is Doctor…I do know somebody named “Dr. Zarkov”, though, which gives me weird pleasure. He’s no scientist, though, but a designer of papermodels.

    1. I daresay, you can risk daring…especially since there are no terribly negative consequences if you’re wrong. But that’s all I dare saying for the moment.
