Share Your World – Week 149

Oh, hello dear…

For this week’s featured Shelf Critter, we’re going with a character who was popular long before SCT was even a disturbing gleam in my eye.  Rainbow Donkey was first conceptualized as a character in my cartoons way back in 2009, and was already a fixture of the Evil Squirrel universe when I started this blog a couple years later.  He was so popular in 2013, that a very talented crocheter who followed me at the time, Jennifer Olivarez (Squirrel Picnic) created the awesome replica of him that you still see on my blog 8 years later…

Ody was very happy to see him when he arrived…

Like so many of the other treasures I was sent in those early years, Rainbow Donkey found his way into the SCT troupe as the laid back, but henpecked hubby of Sparklepony… who often gets into trouble when he seeks out some fun with Mitzi (Or, knowing Mitzi, the other way around)…

Given their libido, how did unicorns ever become extinct?

Here’s a fun SYW question inspired by Rainbow Donkey…

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.  Name something you love for all six major colors of the rainbow! (Sorry indigo, you’re just blue-purple)

And before we get to the fun part, while going through my checklist of who I’ve used so far for this series, I should point out that Mr. Fox got skipped in last week’s SCT-SYW compilation.  I had to speak up for him because, you know, he won’t say anything himself…

Mr. Fox may be silent, but he’s deadly when angered…

Now let’s share our world with Melanie’s always fun questions for this week!

Rainbow Donkey was here…

How many pillows do you sleep with?  If over one or two, is it because you sleep better ‘propped up’ a little?

Just one, and it’s barely any support.  I’d rather sleep without a pillow at all than have multiple pillows bending my neck.  I always hated hotel pillows because they weren’t flat enough…

Biskit apparently only needed one pillow as well.

What would be the worst thing you could put in a piñata?

All natural, all organic ingredients…

What noise annoys you the most?

There’s a few noises that go beyond just making my ears bleed….

Alarm clock buzzing: You know what I’m talking about….

It absolutely makes my skin crawl, even if I only hear it on TV.

Small dog yapping: The absolute WORST thing about going to my Mom’s house is hearing her two fucking anklebiters yap at everything.  Just another noise that irritates me on a full nervous system level rather than just annoying me…

Saxophone solos: OK, I love sax solos now… they were such an integral part of late 70’s and 80’s pop music.  But when I was a kid, for some bizarre reason they annoyed me so much I ran for cover when I knew a really prominent one was coming.  “Baker Street” would leave me covering my ears.  If the version of “I Want A New Drug” with the extended solo came on the radio, I’d leave the room while it played.  And there was some song from preschool that would literally leave me in tears if they played it…. I have no recollection of the song itself, but I’ll bet it had a sax solo…

That’s not gonna win my vote, Bill…

If cartoon physics suddenly replaced real physics, what are some things you would want to try?

Boy, I can think of some people I’d just LOVE to drop anvils on the head of…. knowing they’d only be cutely flattened rather than crumpled into a bloody, messy pulp that might get me arrested.

At least SCT physics exists in my universe.

Please share something good that has happened to you over the past month.

I finally got my driver’s license renewed on Tuesday!  More on that Sunday….

  1. agree for the sax… my un-fav is still of the night by the satins… it sounds like a goose in a pan… :O))))

    I could only take 11 seconds of the alarm. I bet it doesn’t get any better.

  3. Heh, heh…good ole DMV, the great equalizer for all humanity. Can’t wait to hear how it went. As for that alarm video, can’t believe it was that long AND annoying. That puppy would end up being turned into a Frisbee in my house for sure.

  4. Thanks E.S. for Sharing Your World. Immense apologies to the silent Mr. Fox, he might have yipped at me or SOMETHING… anyway, I shall remedy the situation around Thanksgiving when the Evil Squirrel Nest and Share Your World collide again (because we’re now up to three questions). Blame my remedial math skills on the faux pas…they didn’t teach girls to count in Utah. Well the reason is self explanatory in the question. And we still don’t. *sigh* Moving right along.

    The Buster piñata is an excellent idea. But I’m afraid that child looking for the butt nugget bear might get a butt nugget of a different kind if he keeps whacking the possibly dead possum that way.

    I have a delicate question to ask, because I’ve lost a bit of ground this season for various reasons and haven’t been reading closely which is totally my own fault. Do you still have a cat? Or did Ody exit stage left when I wasn’t looking? O_o I hope he’s there still. Um. Awkward.. 😳🥺

    Have a great week, I’m sure “Mecca” is in full seasonal swing by now. I’ll stay tuned for Sunday’s update…

    • Yes, Ody is still alive and well! Mr. Fox will be thrilled to see his question get answered by the masses in the next round, and I’m sure he’s working on a stirring thank you speech right now. As for Butt Nugget Bars, they were a gag candy bar brand name I used in my comic strips. Funny and gross at the same time…

  5. “Funny and gross” – two excellent descriptions of the usual SCT productions! HAHA That alarm is beyond annoying – it’s pretty close to exploding brain territory. A drivers license renewal story? Can’t wait!

    I’m with you on the pillows. I’m sure having your head at a 70 degree to your body can’t be good for your neck.

Jabber Away...
