Share Your World – Week 99

Would you like dark meat or mystery meat?

Sliced possum, anyone?  Welcome to The Nest’s Thanksgiving feast, sponsored by Tums and Pepto Bismol.  This year, the talk around the table will be our answers to this week’s Share Your World questions, hosted as always by Melanie.  Fortunately, my family already knows I’m a bit of a nutcase…

Would you please pass the planet pie?

What is worse than a dentist with bad breath?

Having a Siamese twin with B.O.

That’s it, brother… I’m dragging you into the shower with me!

Have you ever been rejected by someone that you liked, or been told that you were not good enough for somebody else?

I am a rock, I am an island.  I’ve never even tried to dip my toes into the relationship waters…. at least in real life.  I’ll never end up like Robbie…

Did you ever want to have toast for breakfast, only to find that all your bread was covered in green mold?

Unless I have a yen for burnt toast and know I’ll polish off the whole loaf in a couple days, I don’t even buy bread for the very reason that it molds so quickly.

Though I’ll bet burnt mold doesn’t taste that bad…

Did you ever sneeze so hard that your whole body hurt?

Yes, because my sneezes tend to be of the ten tons of dynamite type of explosions.  I’ve always puzzled at the people whose sneezes wouldn’t even be heard in a library.  How in the hell are they even expelling whatever is irritating their nose?  And for that matter, I can’t imagine little toot sneezes like that could possibly set off the chain reaction of pain that comes with a Big One…

There’s that honey glaze that makes the turkey look so good!

Did you ever buy clothing on the internet that did not fit, but you wore them anyway, since you didn’t want to pay the $5 shipping charge to send them back?

I rarely buy physical products online (working in a store where I get a discount, it doesn’t make sense), and clothing-wise, a couple batches of polo shirts is all I’ve ever gotten online.  The most recent batch several years ago didn’t have the pocket, as advertised, but I kept them anyway…

Expired online orders should just be sold to McDonald’s.

Gratitude Section:

Since my comic strip I used to draw appeared weekly on Thursdays, that means there was always a Thanksgiving edition annually during its 5 year run.  So to add some cheer to your holiday (or non-holiday), here’s Evil Squirrel’s Nest’s five Thanksgiving Day comics, tinged with numerous Black Friday references since you know where I work…

  1. you can make penicillin from thatt bread… could be a best seller ;O) happy thanksgiving to you and all shelf critters…

  2. Perfect ‘toons for today – my fave is the asteroid landing…..that could put a damper on Black Friday if anything could. I am sure Meccas far and wide would prefer an asteroid to facing the lines of shoppers salivating at the doors at opening time. Hopefully they will be wearing masks of course! Happy Thanksgiving ES…………

  3. I love your cartoons. I liked the last one best of all: the asteroid hitting Mecca. These days, I often think and asteroid the restarts the world is not an entirely bad idea. I’m sure there’s a prediction in either Ecclesiastes or some mystic’s scribblings about our ending with a “great rock and fire from the sky.” If there isn’t, I will have to write one of my own in olde English and very weird spelling so no one can read it without an English college professor pre-pronouncing it so we English majors could stuffer along in our own version of Mydel Englysf. Happy whatever you do for the holiday.

    Those insanely agile red squirrels were doing a 3-ring circus performance this morning — in the cold and rain. What an acrobatic group! And they seem to be turning winter white. I didn’t know squirrels did that!

    Hugs,

    • I just came back from a walk, and the squirrels were out in full force this morning. They were even scampering right in front of me, which is rare. Given how chilly and cloudy it is this morning, I didn’t expect to see many of them at all. I’d assume the extra white is coming from the thicker fur they grow as winter approaches… it seems like most of the excess fuzz on winter squirrels is very light colored. And it helps them blend in with the snow to distract those hungry winter hawks…

      • They are turning ALMOST white. Instead of solid white — like an arctic fox — they are turning gray, but mostly white with black decoration on tip of tail They look like stuffies.

  4. Thanks Bill for Sharing Your *feast* of Thanksgiving Comic strips (vintage) and Your World! I think I’ll pass on that bread though. *ulp*…. Happy Turkey Day, and watch out for those B.F. Shoppers, particularly the ones who won’t wear masks. It ought to be real ‘special’ this year!

  5. Wishing you a wagnificent howliday! 🍗🦃🥧

    Top tip – you can freeze bread, and single slices defrost really quickly and don’t go hard like when you store it in the fridge!

    • I had actually just read about that a week ago. I knew there were types of bread we have at work that are delivered frozen, but the concept of putting a loaf of regular bread in the freezer to preserve it never occurred to me. And given how long some of my food stays lost in the freezer, probably wouldn’t cut back on waste any….
