Hey, it’s the first edition of The Nest’s Share Your World answers to start off with an earworm! In honor of the occasion, of course. And no, despite the rumors, this song was not originally called “69 Tears” and changed to satisfy the 1960’s censors. Besides, if you’re crying while in a sixty-nine, you must be doing it wrong…
And speaking of Question Marks, let’s see what questions Melanie has for us this plain old boring week…
Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
When you typically wake up at 8 PM and go to bed around noon, which meal is actually which?
Who do you admire most in the world?
Well, since this didn’t specify a person, I’m going to choose Buster!
He began as a gag I drew for someone who had a nasty encounter with a possum, and who ultimately gave Buster his name.
Inspired a daring act of theft in my store one night in 2011, he integrated himself into the Evil Squirrel characters I was drawing…
His amazing acts of dying added lighthearted moments to my new blog comic… and thanks to the talented YoungAtFifty, he could cross over into Shelf Critter Theatre!
Buster, you are indeed a true hero to us all!
BUSTER: Wow, thank you! I’m truly humbled to have been an inspiration to so many people out there! I don’t think I’m worthy of such praise!
Oh Buster, sure you are! I think it’s about time you were recognized for all of the hard work you’ve put in here at The Nest…
BUSTER: Cool beans! That font is really spiffy! I hope my Mom is recording this at home on that VCR I found in the trash can!
I’m proud to present to you this lifetime achievement award!
BUSTER: That’s really nice! It’ll look really neato sitting on top of my collection of chewed up tampons! Sniff! Is that lead paint I smell?
Yes it is, directly from China! And we also glossed it up with a coating of mercury. But that isn’t all, Buster… we decided to have a dinner in your honor!
BUSTER: That’s swell! What’s on the menu?
You’ll never guess…
SNUGGLE: I figured we’d start off with a main course of possum loaf smothered with a nice marsupial marinara, with possum giblets on the side, and for dessert…. possum eclairs stuffed with only the finest in possum guts!
BUSTER: You already have my mouth watering, chef! I can’t wait to be served dinner!
SNUGGLE: Eh, it’s kinda gonna be the other way around. Now, follow me into the kitchen…
What do you regret not doing in the last year?
Getting that Prince Albert I always wanted….
How about some more classic comics! I’ll bet you’d like to read some more of my past (cough, hack) pearls of wisdom!
This week, let’s do a tribute to one of my least favorite bits of technology to come about in my lifetime…. the smartphone! You may love yours, but I’ve never bitten and never will. I hated them from day one, and refuse to get one and become addicted like the rest of the sheep. So naturally, smartphones, along with the social media platforms that exploded with it, were often a frequent target of my sick humor in my comics…
