Share Your World – Week 97

Happy….. um, Thanksgiving?

I went for a walk this morning and brought my camera with me for the first time in several years.  My mission: To get a photo of something, ANYTHING, to use as my leadoff for Share Your World.  I wound up taking three pics…. all on the way back home.  The first was a pair of trees that kinda had some red mixed in with the green.  Eh, I get better pics of fall foliage in the background of my squirrel shots.  The second was of the back of an SUV that had “USA” written on the back window in bright white.  I thought that was kinda cute… and only when I saw the result on the screen did I notice the red and blue letters written above it endorsing a candidate whose name rhymes with “rump.”  So the final pic I took made the cut, and it’s these two skull solar lanterns that, two weeks after Halloween, still guard the entryway to the house at the end of my street.  They look perfectly dorky and whimsical to go with this waste of time intro I insist on writing…

So with that out of the way, let’s see what Melanie came up with this week for us to Share Our World to…

May as well keep the skull theme rolling…

Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not?

Everyone likes good surprises and hates bad surprises.  But surprises are an integral part of life that we should all be thankful for…

Puppy Surprise was all about ripping puppies out of a bitch’s womb…

There was a great and underrated episode of The Twilight Zone that dealt with this the surprising (ha!) answer to this question.  In “A Nice Place To Visit,” a hoodlum gets killed and is sent to a place where a jovial Mr. French sees to it that the crook gets everything his heart desires in his eternal afterlife.  At first, the guy thinks there must have been some mistake that got him sent to heaven… but no.  After tiring of having everything exactly as he wishes, he asks his guardian why he wasn’t sent to “the other place” instead.  That’s when this happens…

I love this picture….

..and Mr. French informs him that he IS in “the other place.”  Because, you see, hell is where there are never any surprises, good or bad, that gives life its charm and keeps it from being a monotonous drone.  Think about that the next time life throws possum shit in your face…

Plumbers would never have to jackhammer up my kitchen floor in hell!

What’s your favorite zoo animal?

Geez, that’s like asking me to pick my favorite shelf critter!

Are you sure they can’t see me?

I think everyone’s favorite animal at the zoo is whichever ones are the horniest when you visit.  Oh, come on… everyone gets an immature kick out of seeing the XXX side of the zoo.  For my only zoo visit of the 2000’s, it was the mongooses (mongeese?)…

The look on “her” face says it all. Or maybe it’s a “him,” which would also explain it…

My Mom got luckier on a previous trip and got this lovely photo of the hyenas doing something other than laughing…

Would any of you like a turn?

And female yeens have a pseudo-penis that serves as a built in strap-on… so you don’t really know what’s actually going on in that photo!

What three things do you think of the most each day?

I like to spend each day contemplating the beauty of Shakespeare’s plays, pondering the Theory of Relativity, and searching for a solution to world peace…

You liar! You spend all day in front of this computer! And sometimes even forget to feed me…

When, if ever, is taking a human life justified?

Only when it is absolutely, positively necessary to protect yourself or others.  Outside of such active shooter or terrorist situations, I’d only recommend this extreme measure against people who don’t use their turn signals, people who can’t get their head out of their cell phones, people who wear different colored socks like its a fashion statement, people who feed birds but not squirrels, people whose car speakers can be heard from space, people who like to preach their beliefs, and people who just piss me off.  Those are really the only cases where taking a human life can be easily justified…

Oh, I forgot annoying customers! Like I said, to protect myself and others from their stupidity…

Do small miracles exist?

The guy on the right looks kinda small…

My mama told me you can find anything on the internet if you shop around…

  1. Umm, good choice on the skulls given your options. When I see those vehicles, my car almost turns into Christine. 🚙 Yikes!!

  2. I had no clue about the yeens… and yes it is smarter not to laugh while you do some things, it leads to ending alone LOL

  3. BWAHHAHAHHA!! Thank you E.S. for Sharing Your humorous World! I found that phenomenon of the horny animal in a cage thing happened to me too, every time I went to the zoo. I haven’t been back in 40+ years now. It was an early education for sure! “Gee Mommy, what is that big animal doing to that smaller one? Is it hurting the other one? ‘Cos that little one is sure screaming loud…” (I suppose you’ve heard the same every time Big Scrat corners (nudge nudge wink wink) Snuggl E. Bear. O_o TMI? Well sometimes one goes where the wind takes them and speaking of wind, this comment is fully long enough already. Thanks for the laughs and a great Share Your World!

    Great, now I’m going to be added to the list of sickos who look up things like “female hyena penises” because now I’m curious about that. Thanks a lot!

    For a second I thought I might be on your list of people you’d like to kill because the other day I wore mismatched socks. But I was relieved to read on to discover that’s only a killable offense if you do it as a fashion statement. In my case, it happened because I apparently can’t tell the difference between blue and green in the gloomy darkness of November.

    People in my neighborhood got right on bringing their Halloween decorations in this year. What makes me shake my head is the number of neighbors that have already put their Christmas trees up. They’re starting the week after Halloween now!

    • You can tell when someone’s doing the mismatched sock thing on purpose or not…. especially if they’re wearing no-show socks with those slide sandals. There was a giant bin of colored no-show socks for kids next to my area during Back To School time, and I eyerolled at the name all the time, because these days, no-show socks are apparently meant to show…

  5. Thanks for sharing your most interesting world ES. I didn’t know about that hyena spare appendage thing either – the things I learn from you are amazing! Saw my first TV commercial related to Christmas the other day. Next it’ll be just after Easter they start with the Christmas stuff – earlier every year! Wind up Easter eggs with your choice of holiday tunes. Yipes.

    • I can still relate to the story about my second summer at Mecca (1999) when we had a feature of Christmas lights come in on the last day of June, and it was on display that July! It was the year after the “icicle lights” fad was big, and I guess we wanted to get the jump on next year’s sales…

      It was also before the retail inspired trend of decorative lights for all holidays, so they weren’t for the Fourth!

  6. We don’t frequent the zoo anymore. It’s just pornography in furs! I remember Mr. French…probably not something to brag about. The skulls look like they’re guarding something buried.

    • There’s nothing more natural than animals in captivity “performing” for a captive human audience. I love the TV shows from before my time better than the ones in my lifetime. I can name all of Hogan’s Heroes but none of the six Friends…

  7. The sex life of hyenas is so bizarre I’m still not sure there’s a clear female/male thing or who gives birth or do thy swap?

    • I think it’s mainly just the appearance of a “penis” on the female that throws things off. Sticking that thing in a boy hyena isn’t likely to do much but embarrass the poor guy when his friends find out…

    I’m glad you’ve limited yourself so severely on the “taking of life” thing…
