Share Your World – Week 143

Hopefully I can get a word in edgewise today…

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.

Oh, and motivational speaker…

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)

Mr. Fox ain’t telling his answer…

OK, now that the blabbermouth has left, let’s share our world with Melanie’s questions for this week!

It’s Mr. Fox’s world, we’re just living in it…

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…

Bah…. team lifting is for wusses!

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…

Yeah, go ahead and cry, Momma….. wuss!

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…

If only I’d have been of age in 1992, Admiral, you’d have definitely got my vote for that great line!

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!

Zeeba approves!

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.

In Soviet Russia, carousel horse rides you!

Please feel free to share something you’ve enjoyed about this September.

You know what September means…..

  1. Mr. Fox speaks for so many of us when he says ……………………………………………………………….!

    Pam

  2. love your answers mr. fox. I sure voted for someone because he looked good… at the sexiest thingy alive contest of course ;O)

  3. Thank you Evil Squirrel (and a silent nod to Mr. Fox) for Sharing Your World! Females of any species sacrifice much to look good in those skimpy little outfits…and freeze their remaining assets off in the process! I like the idea of the centrifuge carousel…put a bungee cord or two in there and you’d have amusement for EVERYONE. Boing Boing…crash splatter… just make sure the health & safety insurance is paid up in full. I suspect in this day of :touchy-feely, I’m a wuss so I’m going to sue you because I got a minor scratch off your nasty ride”, that the lawsuits might be plentiful. But on the more adult side (which one blogger has already put in his vote for) we could have Mitzi and her carousel of adult naughties that nobody wants their children to see. Else why put Vaseline on the door to one’s boudoir or lock it when such occurs? Um… Maybe Mr. Fox has a point about ‘speech’ or lack thereof. If brevity is good, isn’t utter silence the BEST? …….
    Have a splendid week! 🙂

    If I look at someone and look in the ear and can still see the wall on the other side, I vote for that person because it’s the sign of a true politician..

  5. Haha! Your cartoon reminds me not to buy any candy that I like. Hard candy it is then! I’m actually seeing as much Christmas decor as displayed Halloween candy. WTH?? Can we at least get to October 1st? *sigh

    • Not as long as people are buying it in September… and they do! Not so much at my store, because staffing issues and upcoming inventory have left Christmas mostly still in the backroom…

      • I used to own a retail store so I know the cycle from ordering merch at markets and when it delivers. I’ve never seen Christmas stuff displayed in September before.

      • When I first started working at Mecca in the late 90’s, Xmas replaced Lawn & Garden and went out as soon as that area sold down in late August. The last decade or so, it’s been eased back to about the third week of September, probably to keep us from getting flooded with Xmas and Halloween build-up at the same time. At least the holiday music waits until closer to Thanksgiving…

      • Argh…if I hear one Christmas song this month, I’m boycotting!!

    How fortunate when your job is also your exercise regimen.
    The advantage of your carousel idea is that loads of bystanders get splattered too by ballistic minors…
