Meet The Star


BASHFUL: Oh my Boulder!  You must be THE Buster Possum!  I’m such a huge fan of yours!

BUSTER: Ahhh, my public.  Do you want an autograph or a selfie?

BASHFUL: I’m blown away by getting the chance to meet you!  Say!  Could you…. like, you know…. die for me?

BUSTER: Are you sure you don’t want a selfie?

BASHFUL:  Hmmm, maybe with your marsupial carcass.  Pleeeeeeeeease, Mr. Possum!  Do it for your biggest fan!

BUSTER: I’m afraid there must be some misunderstanding here…

BASHFUL: Oh!  I think I’m going to get my wish!  Here comes a speeding, out of control car now! (Bashful moves the hell out of the way…)


BUSTER: Huh?  Oh….. kid, I hate to disappoint you, but…….



The car that was barreling after Buster comes to an abrupt halt right before it would have flattened the plump possum into a pile of guts…

BASHFUL: Wait a minute!  What’s happening here!  You’re supposed to get SQUASHED just like in the comics!!!

BUSTER: I hate to break this to you, little buddy, but I don’t really have to endure all of those gruesome deaths week after week.  I am a cartoon thespian, after all, and I work with a stunt double!  Here he comes now to take my place…


RICE 2: Sigh…… Buster stunt double reporting for duty.

BUSTER: Time to take one for the team again, ol’ chap.  Don’t worry, I’ll buy you a coffee once shooting’s over.  Or maybe a transfusion…

RICE 2: Can we just get this over with before my health insurance expires?



BUSTER: See there, kiddo?  Not a scratch on me!

RICE 2: Ohhhhhhhhh, the humanity….


BUSTER: Now, how about that selfie?

BASHFUL: Uhhhhh, no thanks.  I had no idea you were such a fraud!  I think a part of my childhood just died….

This is just the latest in a series of adventures Bacon’s pet rock Bashful can expect to have here at The Nest over the next few weeks.  Stay tuned for more madness and mayhem as Bashful and my wide assortment of critters get into all kinds of trouble!  Crocheted Buster is a creation of inaugural Contest of Whatever winner YoungAtFifty.

  1. what? your have a stunt-possum, Buster? and you were my hero once … thought you have 87 lives…. I guessed it nothing is real in show biz :o) btw: I wish gund or mattel would make buster plush toys… I would buy one… and maybe they would be a block BUSTER and mattel had no longer time to produce barbie’s… you would become stinking rich and our world would be a better one without barbie :o)

  2. A STUNT DOUBLE! I’m shattered. My faith is dribbling down my chin along with my coffee. Okay, I’d still like a selfie … but could the REAL Buster autograph it?

    Nooooo, say it’s not true 😦
    Buster must die!

  4. 1jaded1 says:

    No way. Buster…do you mind backing up to that frayed part of the electrical cord? It seems to be calling YOUR name.

  5. Egad…now all my childish naive thoughts are likewise crushed. Being a grown up is definitely not for sissies.
    Your fur-iend,

  6. I too am crushed to learn that Buster himself has not died a thousand deaths but that poor, frayed, fluff of floof does stand ins for him. Sigh. Next you’re gonna tell me there’s no tooth fairy……or Easter bunny…….


    • I accept no responsibility should it turn out that the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and even that jolly old elf from the North Pole should turn out to be a figment of the imagination. I can only plead guilty to faking Buster’s death several hundred times…

    A stunt Buster?! I am crushed and surprised. WOW – I never knew. Hopefully Bashful doesn’t have a ‘stunt rock’ out there…. or does he – eyebrows up curiously. XOXO – Bacon

    • I think those critters he cheated out of their poker money may take care of Bashful’s stunt double to make sure he isn’t around to rescue him from a dangerous situation!

      • Piglove says:

        Amen to that my evil friend. Poker is one of Bashful’s favorite games here to play… of course it’s strip poker with the lady rocks… who would have thought that huh? XOXO – Bacon

    All this time there’s been a stunt Buster and I had no idea! I did wonder how Buster kept his cocky attitude after enduring so many deaths. I have the feeling Bashful won’t be happy until he sees the real Buster dead. Buster better watch his back!

  9. I am so proud that wee Ricy has a job. I hope he is getting well paid in American dollars and banking it securely. 😀

    Why is there a warning tag in each photo? Is it part of the set– or a the subtext of the story? Also, love the crocheted critter. Too cute.

    • I wonder how many times that tag ends up in the background when I shoot “scenes” like that in this room? It dangles from the blinds in my computer room window, and is the only one in the house the cats haven’t chewed off yet…. probably because I don’t let them do things like that when I’m in here.
