Share Your World – Week 141

My fellow world sharers…

Yeah, it’s only Wednesday, but I have lots of time and the Randomator was being stupid… so let’s share our world a day early.  And that means another critter to feature… and I’m sure you’d all consider politicians to be critters.  Uncle Sam serves as the Shelf’s President for Life, as well as a few other odd leadership jobs in various episodes.  Sam is certainly as corrupt and weasely as they come, particularly given SCT’s large overlap with a certain Presidential administration…

Out of the road, hippie, before I flatten your unAmerican carcass!

Uncle Sam is an old bingo dauber (his top hat is the cap) I wound up using at some point during my playing days, and was only spared the waste can because of my incredible hoarding abilities.  It just wouldn’t be the Shelf, though, without his honest and trustworthy face running things behind Evil Squirrel’s back…

Lies never killed anyone…. well, mostly.

A rare serious and thought-provoking SYW question inspired by Uncle Sam…

In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens?

Before we get interrupted by some nonsense Presidential speech, let’s get the actual Share Your World part if today’s post out of the way.  Questions, as always, by Melanie

Sam says it’s HIS world, and he won’t be sharing it…

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

Probably the former, though that really means nothing in the spirit of this question.  A lot of what I say and do, which isn’t much, is largely irreverent and sometime irrelevant to the world as others know it.  Oddly enough, I’m pretty much the opposite at work where I’m usually serious about getting shit done, and talking plenty of smack about those who aren’t.

It would be nice to say and do nothing.

What does the world need less of?

Countries.  There were too many of them to try and remember when I was growing up in the 80’s, and they’ve just multiplied like rabbits since then.  Let’s make geography easier for everyone by lumping a bunch of those tiny shithole countries all together into empires…

Yeah, that’s more like it!

Do you feel older or younger than your age?

Older.  I hit a bit of a wall 8 years ago when I was 38, and have crashed into that wall over the past year or so.  I feel fucking old…. though who knows if it’s as old as I’m supposed to feel.  It’s not like I’d ever been in my mid 40’s before to know…

Getting older sucks, but Mitzi is like a fountain of youth.

What is a cause you’ll always passionately support?

If The National Apathy Society had a local chapter, I’d be a card carrying member…. assuming I cared enough to even join.

One of the freebies for joining the NAS.

GRATITUDE SECTION

What is your personal affirmation if you have one?   (for this instance “affirmation means emotional support or encouragement.” )

The critters of The Nest are always very encouraging and emotionally supportive of one another!

    Shelf critters are too smart to work for the gummit

  3. draliman says:

    We used to have an empire but it all fell apart. I bet if President Uncle Sam had been in charge that wouldn’t have happened…

  4. we agree… wo needs countries? we have country muzak, that’s enough and we are fine with it…

  5. We agree there are too many countries…..and so many of them have names ending in the letters “IKSTAN”……what’s with that? How about we start our own country and name it “SARCASTIKSTAN”…………

    • I’ve used Bumfuckistan in many of my comics and SCT episodes. I never did get around to learning all of those countries the old USSR split off into. Dang, who would have thought I’d ever miss the Soviets…

  6. Great catching up ! Soul ❤

  7. Thank you most sincerely for Sharing Your World, Bill! I am awed by the serious and thoughtful nature of Sam’s question – I really thought all politicians (including cute toy ones) were brainless twerps bent on getting theirs and getting gone, despite the carnage that’s caused while doing that. T-dump the Unholy proved my point, but perhaps I’m too harsh. The cartoon was really funny, and true to life for some of us…I was glad to be born a girl, so I didn’t have to do that awkward shuffle step dance when asking someone out. I’d NEVER date (well I didn’t then either) in today’s ‘marketplace’ because asking someone out? Ain’t ever happening. Not by me anyway. Poor Robbie. I suspect if Robbie won the Lottery and got rich, that snooty female would change her tune fairly fast. But I’m cynical like that. At age 46 (which my quick math brain probably got wrong), you are still in your prime, sonny. Enjoy it while it lasts. Everyone feels more than their age from time to time if that’s of comfort? 😉 Have a great week and watch for the next Squirrely Share Your World, airing next Monday! 😀
