You remember the Professor, don't you? He was smarter than Gilligan, more handsome than the Skipper, but not as rich as Mr. Howell. Two out of three ain't bad. He could make anything out of bamboo and coconuts but couldn't, for the life of him, figure out how to fix a two-foot hole in a boat. Ginger turned his head, but second only to his love for botany was his love for MaryAnn (this we all knew deep down).
Very similar to the Professor on Gilligan's Island is the other Professor, husband to my frequent commenter MaryAnn. He's the strong, silent type. He can make stuff out of nothing. He's smart. He's handsome. He's not at rich as Thurston Howell, III. He's crazy about MaryAnn and loves her coconut cream pie. And today, he's fifty years old.
Happy Birthday, Professor!
