This week’s Share Your World intro is dedicated to The Nest’s lovable, cute, and utterly dazed and confused vulpine Mr. Fox. I purchased Mr. Fox (real name Slick, according to his tag) from the same Ozarkland souvenir money-suck I got Rainy from. He’s one of those more modernish Beanie Babies with the YUGE eyes that are supposed to look cute, but on the Shelf they play as more soul devouring than anything…. thus Mr. Fox’s primary role as an effective statue.
Due to his effective catatonic state, Mr. Fox is quite literally speechless, with all of his dialogue consisting of a string of ellipses, and sometimes other punctuation marks. It’s his only gag, but he’s damned good at it… and he’s brought many laughs to SCT skits without ever uttering a discouraging word.
A Share Your World question themed around Mr. Fox:
No, wait…. I mean….
If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be? (Real names aren’t necessary, vague descriptions are fine… and yes, this is being asked in fun and not to be mean)
OK, now that the blabbermouth has left, let’s share our world with Melanie’s questions for this week!
What’s your favorite way to exercise?
The Mecca exercise regimen consisting of 40 hours a week of weight lifting training helps keep my body toned so I don’t look like a 300 pound blob…
What’s more important to you – family or friends?
Meh, I am a rock, I am an island. I don’t have the latter and am mostly ambivalent about the former. My squirrels and critters mean more to me than most people do…
Have you ever voted for someone (in whatever venue – politics, contests, school elections) based solely on how they looked?
I’d have a hell of a time picking most politicians out of a lineup since I isolate myself so well from the news. So rest assured, I won’t ever be accused of voting for someone just because they look like a million bucks…
How could carousels be spiced up so they are more exciting?
Replace the carousel motor with one from a centrifuge. Sit back and watch the kids go flying off at incredible speeds!
Or, for those of you who are squeamish or just think kids don’t deserve to die grisly deaths… hire Mitzi as one of the horses.
Please feel free to share something you’ve enjoyed about this September.
You know what September means…..
