Well, Peter the problem with jokes is that sometimes (most times) I cannot remember the punchline. Or if I remember the punchline, I cannot remember the setup. Hence, my joke telling is rarely funny. I do, however, have a favorite cartoonist and a favorite cartoon character. Our son, Luke , created a comic strip in college called "Void Where Prohibited." His comic strip was published in the Purdue University newspaper, The Exponent, during Luke's junior year at Purdue. One of the main characters of "Void Where Prohibited" was a duck named Miles. Miles as some of you may know is the first name of our own Daddy D. The duck was named by one of Luke's roommates, who had been a student in Miles's physics and chemistry classes.
This version of Miles did not appear in "Void Where Prohibited". Luke created the chemist duck for a booklet that Miles and I created for a science teacher's inservice.
