It was on March 10, 1977 that a trio of very alert astronomers made one of the most astounding scientific discoveries of our lifetime… that the seventh planet from the sun had a series of rings encircling it. At the time, only Saturn was known to have a set of rings in our solar system, which is why it’s always been the poster boy for ringed planets. But yes, it was only relatively recently that scientists discovered that there are rings around Uranus…
And so, with the juvenile humor out of the way, it’s time for us to answer Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week. This promises to only be slightly more mature in nature…
What’s The Strangest Thing In Your
There’s not a whole lot in there right now, and nothing really out of the ordinary, except…..
Those four cans of chocolate frosting, which I’ve discussed in a previous SYW answer post, are STILL residing in the very back! To copy and paste the expiration dates on those four cans from that 2020 post….

Would You Rather Hear The Music Of Johann Sebastian Bach Played By A Barbershop Quartet, Or A Heavy Metal Band?
It’s somewhat known by now that the power chords that are the foundation of heavy metal music actually got their start with the great composers of the 18th Century. So for a heavy metal band to play classical music wouldn’t really be much of a stretch… which is why Mozart was such a hit at the German biker bar in Falco’s video.
I’m not sure a barbershop quartet could replicate classical music, given that they’re a vocal group and those fancy sonatas and symphonies and such didn’t have any words. Maybe one of them could play Beethoven’s Fifth on their armpit, though….
If You Could Erase One Event From History, Which One Would You Erase?
Sorry, but Doc Brown warned me about messing with the past….. right before he got in his DeLorean and completely fucked up the future.
If Your Food Is Bad At A Restaurant, Do You Say Something?
What most people would consider to be bad is probably what I like. If there aren’t any hairballs, blood or maggots in it… I’m not saying anything.
On one side of the earth we’re facing upcoming Spring, and on the other Autumn. What positive or uplifting thought do these changes bring to you?
You mean Autumn’s coming up in the Eastern Hemisphere? Who knew?
I apparently didn’t make a comic about Spring, so now for something completely irrelevant…
