Shelf Critter Advent Calendar – Day 13

How do we not look forward to Christmas?  Let us count the ways.  That’s just what The Nest is doing every day this month until the fat man comes crashing onto your roof with our Vatican unapproved Shelf Critter Advent Calendar!  So, what unlucky critter are we going to find waiting for us on this Friday the 13th?

Gee, who’d have guessed?

BUSTER: Hiya everyone!  I hope everyone is having a swell and awesome holiday season!

Keep blowing sunshine out of your ass like that, Buster, and you’re going to get colon cancer.  Now, before the inevitable happens, why don’t you tell us what Christmas means to a possum like you?

BUSTER: Aw, there’s so much I love about Christmas!  It’s a great time to be alive!  But more than anything, Christmas to me is the wonderful and bountiful feast to be shared with family and friends!  I’m even the guest of honor at this year’s Shelf Critter holiday party!

I think you mean the main course…

TWILIGHT: So AJ, would you like white meat or dark meat?

APPLEJACK: Naw, a possum’s all mystery meat!  Just put a bunch on my plate, Sugarcube.  I’m so hungry, I could eat a horse!

TWILIGHT: You ARE a horse, AJ.

AJ: I know!  That’s how hungry I am!

  1. buster we are so happy that you are the center piece! that are the 15 minutes of fame mr. warhol wished for all people right?

  2. Make sure there’s plenty of cold towels and toilet paper in the rest room after indulging in this particular Christmas feast (beast?).


  3. And you’ve explained what that ‘roast beast’ was that the Whos from Whoville (damn, the grammatically incorrect usage really stings) ate for Christmas. That is, after the Grinch returned it to them…I’ve always wondered if that beast came back covered in dog hair. … Poor ol’ Buster. Spreading cheer or something, even roasted.

    • It’s the same roast beast that can be found on buffets all over the country…. freshly ground by an 18 wheeler on the interstate. He’ll get his revenge in the form of indigestion and maybe food poisoning…

    I was expecting Buster to be Christmas Eve, and would have died of starvation waiting for someone to open his door…

    • Ha! Maybe we’d find him still waiting for his turn in next year’s calendar. Looks like today’s critter is….. ooooh, skeleton Buster. It smells like something died behind this door…

    Gutterball – LOL! Poor Buster, he can’t even enjoy a Christmas feast. I can’t either, since I am allergic to everything but at least I don’t end up AS the feast.

    • It’s always a successful dinner if you don’t end up as the entree. At least he’s doing some good by feeding starving critters. I always thought that’s how Sally Struthers should have fed the children in Africa too…

  6. You’re always the centerpiece on the banquet table. At least this time we didn’t the blood.
