The Professor

"The Professor" was a cross between Commander McBragg and Mark Twain. I would talk with him at chain link fences and by tile walls, wherever there were nine squares on point it created a portal through space and time where his head would appear and give me advice and confidence. He was especially good at multiplication.

I say..... I say, I say this is fine and dandy!

I was channeling Foghorn Leghorn. Great drawing, the sci-fi explanation behind him makes me think you were a weird kid (but I'm sure we all were). I love the fact that he's a southern dandy with mad math skills! Nice job!

I like the design. I will never look at chain link fences the same again. When they arrested you for peeking through people's fences I'm sure it cleared things right up when you explained that you were just speaking through a space-time portal with the professor.

Hey! What gives? You knew a math genius accessible from any 3 by 3 grid and never once told me about him? I thought we were friends. This explains how you survived that calculus class.

"Armed only with a pair of tweezers and a handkerchief I singlehandedly captured the train bandits." I can just hear McBragg now. He was always a favorite of mine too. I've always admired Mark Twain's witt and wisdom equally. Two great guys to have as companions. Cool caricature Chad!

That's funny... in chain link fences and bathroom floor tiles I always saw a mountain lion staring at me... but instead of using just the nine squares, I had to use 11 so my cougar would have ears. Hadn't thought of that in a while.

Wow, perhaps if I'd had a mathmatically skilled imaginary friend, I would have gone into accounting like Larry up there. Great imaginary grandpa, Chad.

yeah darnit a math friend wouldve TOTALLY helped me out... My imagination wasnt very bright..or isnt for that matter

Great post Chad!
