This week’s SYW featured critters are the Sponkies, handcrafted by everyone’s favorite Aussie aunt from back in the day, Sharon aka Gentlestitches. The inspiration for the pair came about after I’d won Sparklepony from Alice’s contest in 2013, and that her and the also-recently-received Rainbow Donkey might make a good pair (Boy was that a shotgun wedding). RD, Sparklepony and the Sponkies constituted a very non-traditional family long before SCT even came into existence…
The Sponkies are pretty tame for SCT characters, and neither really has a recurring gag or even a proper name. So for their future SYW question, let’s just stick to a basic “getting to know you” question….
Do you have any siblings? If so, where do you rank in birth order? And do you think either of these facts contributed to the person you became?
Now let’s get on to Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week!
What is your opinion of the state of health care in your country? Adequate or inadequate? What could be done to improve it?
Like I’m going to open that can of worms, especially with so many readers from places who believe their health care doesn’t stink!
Instead, let’s take a look at the state of health care on the Shelf, which everyone already knows is a completely fucked up mess…
DR. SHADOW: Wonderful! This operation is proceeding just as perfectly planned!
TROLL: Am I going in the right direction to remove the patient’s tonsils?
SNUGGLE: This is awesome! (Jabs a scalpel in Buster’s jugular vein). I’mma start playing Operation more often!
ZEEBA: (Ripping out Buster’s innards with her teeth) BLD! BLD! BLD! BLD! BLD!!!
UNCLE SAM: Didn’t anyone teach you not to talk with your mouth full of intestines? Oh well, I’m just here to make sure no tax dollars are wasted on this elective vanity procedure.
FUZZYWIG: Excuse me, sir. But could I interest you in some pain-lessing alternative medicine these quacks at the hospital won’t prescribe you?
BUSTER: (Nose buzzing loudly) I only came here to have a splinter removed! Is all this disembowelment really necessary?
Dr. Shadow applies some duct tape to the patient’s mouth and the operation continues…
What are two words that describe you best?
Do you have a morning routine? If so, what it’s like?
Yeah, I get off work and come home. Plus I feed the cat.
Unless we’re talking about my “morning,” in which case I get up at 7 PM and get ready for work. Plus I feed the cat…
What’s something that really makes your blood race?
Caffeine! That’s its whole purpose in life…
Do you enjoy singing festive songs during….
Stop right there!
Let me repeat….
And turn off that Christmas shit before I go insane!
Feel free to share something that brings peace to you.
we would love to play operation… do you think satan kann bring us da equipment we need?
Sure! All you need to do is ask him for one possum. Cutlery not included…
Hmm……so did Unicorn Donkey have anything to do with the current unemployment picture and if so what happened to the “WORLD AT PEACE” part of this whole thing……I think we’ve been ripped off!
You can’t blame Rainbow Donkey for people not wanting to work when every business and their sister branch are hiring. Unicorns can’t fix lazy… that’s even harder than world peace!
Cute. Your aunt was talented!
The mindless drone of tacky holiday music (and TV specials) makes me wanna 🤮
Those kind of messes seem to go up this time of the year. I never thought that might be the reason why…
The mention of Sharon aka Gentlestitches makes me smile. I love possums. I love squirrels. I love cats.
Sharon made everyone smile!
Do I have any siblings? No, I was an only egg.
Do you have any siblings that became omelets?
Thank you for Sharing Your Squirrely World E.S.! The fa-la-las and bringing people figgy pudding or they won’t shut up can get a wee tad annoying. Your answer is perfectly valid, although I’m sure you’ve had to get used to cries of “Scrooge!” and “Grinch!” along the way…. (I myself would NEVER do that, I merely ask the questions). The shelf actually appears to have better health care than America. At least on the shelf they’re honest and open about killing their patients, not subversive like a number of ‘health care workers” are out here… (in the world, not Utah, just to be clear). And I bet all that gutting and maiming and so forth doesn’t cost much either. A win/win (well except for Buster). Your ‘morning’ routine is interesting…morning can be at night you know. I worked the graveyard shift for a number of years, but probably didn’t get much sleep the whole time. I couldn’t reconcile my night-owlish tendencies with the hours, so I was always exhausted. Good for you for maintaining a level of steady employment despite severe working conditions sometimes! 🙂 Have a great week!
I fully admit to being a Scrooge! There’s nothing wrong with that. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and given how played up the holidays are, there should be a lot of Scrooges like me pooping on the festivities with out unmerry attitude!
Ah, Mr Fox, the perfect carol singer…
I could even listen to Mr. Fox with the volume turned all the way up….
