the Wakefield Doctrine (…I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah another day of living…)

…always on a steady course, talk to… Oh!  Hey did not see you click in.
What?  Yeah, am that old, but come on!  What is there not to like about the theme song.  It is bright, upbeat, optimistic and above all welcoming.  In a qualified, “why yes, the answer is here” (with this horse) and you can ask for enlightenment, sort of way.  Further, we are entreated to go to the source…but there is a catch.
“..he’ll give you the answer that you endorse’… now just what the hell is that supposed to mean?  Is that a threat?  You will accept the answer you are given without reservation or questioning?  But this was Post Cold War, c 1961, not the most secure time in the culture’s history.

Anyway,  Mr Ed is not the theme of today’s Post.  Arnold Ziffle is!  (For you younger readers, it will all become clear as you read)

As if!  sorry, could not stay quiet.  No, not upset!  Just that rambling old creators make me want to just grab their collars and give them a good shake!  SOMS? lol  What is that?  No! I’m sorry did not mean to be so insensitive… really is a site? lol  I’m soo sorry.  See what these old writers make me do?
Those old shows are kind of cute…some even funny..more videos to come?  Well at least the teacher is back, won’t have to have Ms. Ack teach…really…all semester? Where is my guidance counselor…SHH he’s coming back…

The theme?  Oh, yeah, right, the theme.  With a straight face you ask what is the theme of today’s Post?  It is the same as that of every other Post since this thing of ours has started.  See the title at the top of the web page?  What does that say?  ‘Wake  Field   Doc   Trin’  keerect.  Since this is the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) I guess I had better start talking about the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers).

(Good to see the roger back at the keyboard.  And he is correct…I do welcome the input and content and contributions of all the Progenitors and Downsprings.  And the input from our new friends as well.  Hey Pixie!  Hope you are having fun at the beach!  (btw Pixie will have a blog up and running soon, it’s in the blogroll now.   But is still ‘under construction’ as those little website drawings of construction guys so succinctly put it.)

So today’s lesson is also kind of a quiz.

Quiz? wtf! I have a 3.87 GPA no way I am taking a quiz…psst  Jimmy! let’s get Britney to do her faint in the aisles thing…the old guys will be so ‘concerned’ and ‘helpful’ that we can slip out the back…

The lesson for today is this (disregard Mr. Ziffle and Arnold):  which of the three characters are which?
(I hear contest coming on!)

There are three characters and one is a clark, one is a scott and one is a roger.  There are several ways to solve the problem and figure out which is who, but there is only one right answer.  The contest?  A free hat to the first 5 correct answers.  (No, AKH have not forgotten your hat.)

So look, think and Comment.

Well this has been fun, as usual.

Mr. B. some travelling music please.

Yeah,  but talented dinosaurs.

  1. inheritor, inheritate? Hmm, sounds like a rogerian term. (Yes, I watched the clip)

  2. Close AKH, but not quite there…

    Sometimes it helps it let yourself step back and get a feeling, not from not what a person is saying but how they are saying it ( in this case the ‘how’ is not literal, not meaning the vocabulary). I mean more the overall feeling the person is projecting.

    Maybe ‘Demeanor’ is the word I want, to refer to how the person presents themselves to the situation. Hell, I might even be willing to say ‘style’ or (given todays musical selection), the old word ‘vibe’.

    (Good Response though, AKH)
    (If by ‘Good Response’ I mean to challenge the contest judge, causing him to try and get technical (about the Doctrine) way beyond his writing ability.)

    Anyway, watch the three main characters interact, how do each character appear to feel about the situation? How do they appear to present their ‘feelings’.

    Will stop for now…lets you and I sit here and see if others try for the Hat.

    Okay, Readers, AKH has stepped up.
    Anyone else out there want to take a shot? Come on! the Wakefield Doctrine is after all the fun way to understand those around us (…and lets you win a Hat!)

  3. Mr Haney is a Scott. Oliver is a roger. Eva is a clark. Oliver is a pompous asshole. Haney is full of bluster and bullshit. Eva is a people pleasing ditz. simple.

    • Excuse me my little Glennster. “People pleasing ditz”? You are making the statement that female clarks are ditzes(sp?)
      BTW, Eva’s character’s name was Lisa. You almost pulled it off until that – you didn’t know her name:)
      Example of a scott anyone?

      • Am I “your little Glennster”? That would so please me. I think ditz is a fine word–nothing wrong with it at all. Makes old LISA as cute as a box of puppies. Are all female clarks therefore ditzes? Not at all. Some are bimbos. Some are nerds. Most are quite sexy and mysterious–and they do love to please others. Part of what makes them so appealing. Taking exception to the word ditz seems a bit…I don’t know…rogerian?

  4. (with apologies to Downspring#1) LMFAO

    However, I neglected to set an end date for the Contest…so I will say:

    “Hey get your answers in before EOD”! (rogerian for End of Day).

    The Winner(s) will be announced at 5:00 pm EST so plenty of time to work out the correct answer.

    Stay tuned, binyons

  5. Glenn is the Winner of a hat (for his damn) head.

    Congrats…(although we clarklike beings prefer the term ‘other directed’ instead of people pleaser.)

    • I donate my hat to our newest recruit–Pixie. I already have a hat for my damn head.
