Share Your World – Week 192

Goliath never saw that stone coming. He was too busy laughing…

It was on September 8, 1504 that one of the most recognizable works of art in human history was unveiled, Michelangelo’s (the artist, not the ninja turtle) David.  While David is considered one of the great masterpieces, that anatomy is certainly one hot mess.  And I’m not even talking about that little appendage that is probably the most viewed wang in the whole world.  Those hands could crack walnuts, and that neck is more like a tree trunk.  Apparently, when Mikey received the commission from the Florence Cathedral, it was expected that the statue would be placed high upon the roof, thus David was sculpted with this line of sight in mind.  Instead it was put right out in the plaza for all to see that big hands don’t necessarily come with a big….. well…..

And just in case you’re more of a butt fancier…

And now before everyone gets too hot and bothered, we’ll tack up a tasteful loincloth and get going on Di’s Share Your World questions for this week….

Down, Mitzi, down! I don’t even think Dave’s old enough for you…

Do you prefer tea, coffee or juice first thing in the morning?

I only drink water and soda, and the caffeine usually comes after I get off work…. which I guess is technically the morning.  Caffeine doesn’t wake me up anyway, it just gives me the runs…

Poor Troll’s gonna have a big mess to clean up today…

When it comes to food, what is your favorite smell?

Burnt possum!

SNIFF! Ahhhhhhh!!!

Just kidding…. but it would probably be some fried food.  Fried chicken smells pretty good, especially when they’re making it in the deli at work.

Do you prefer a take-out or to dine in a restaurant?

I always dined in for the free soda refills.  Thanks to the continued labor shortage people not wanting to work anymore, you can’t count on restaurants even having the inside open now since they’ve learned they can get by just fine on drive thru only…

I once enjoyed dining with one of Kismet’s friends at this McDonald’s in Oklahoma.

If you are hosting a party, do you prepare the food yourself, get caterers in or ask everyone to bring something for the table?

I don’t host parties because I don’t want people visiting me….

Also because I serve burnt possum! MMMMmmmmm!!!!

Gratitude Retro Comic Laff:

    Michelangelo’s David is quite a contrast to Donatello’s. Take a gander at that one!

  2. Fun as always! Thanks for the support.

    Beer-breakfast of champions.

  4. That retro comic elicited a nice chuckle. I guess not cooking is a good skill to have for NOT hosting visitors. Think I’ll give it shot!

  5. Hahaha. Thanks for the chuckle. 😁

    Possibly the first time in human history that the great Michelangelo has been referred to as “Mikey”…
    Burnt possum – don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!

  7. Just proves Michelangelo had an issue with his eyesight……… 🙂
