Share Your World – Week 195

Aaaaaah! There it is!

The geopolitical boundaries of Europe have changed a lot over the years, even in our lifetimes… and the continent is full of little independent “nations” that you’d need a magnifying glass to see on a map.  One you won’t find anymore, and possibly had never even heard of, was a tiny microstate by the name of Couto Misto, which ceased to exist with the signing of the Treaty of Lisbon on September 29, 1864.  Couto Misto was a few square miles area of land in the Salas Valley on the border of Spain and Portugal which consisted of three villages and operated as a sovereign state from its founding in the 10th Century until it was partitioned and annexed by the two more prominent countries.  Funny how those two Old World powers fought for centuries over territory in the Western Hemisphere, yet couldn’t even conquer a small city state that was hiding in between them for 800 years…

The brave and fierce guardian of Cuoto Misto.

And now as we wait for the Swiss and the Austrians to carve up Liechtenstein, let’s answer this week’s Share Your World questions, featuring the return of Melanie!  YAY!!!!

Anyone for a slice of Cuoto Misto with whipped cream?

Would you rather have no nose, or no arms?

Outside of maybe Cyrano de Bergerac, I can’t imagine who’d pick their nose (ha!) over their arms… though the lack of a nose would mean I’d no longer need my arms to wipe blow it.  That’s especially true when most artificial smells just irritate me anyway…

This is also an easy choice for politicians.

What is your spirit animal?

Sure, you might think it’s a squirrel.  But I’m actually a raccoon.  I’m nocturnal, sneaky, have a temper, like what other people think is garbage, and I have rabies…

I’m just lacking the adorable as hell part…

Do you think cavemen had nightmares about cavewomen?

You were expecting, maybe, Raquel Welch?

Where did the name Pina Colada come from?

From the Rupert Holmes song, of course.  He totally made that name up, and some bartender decided to start serving drinks for people who like getting caught in the rain…

Rupert’s gonna wish he didn’t have a nose when Rainy finds out he’s been cheating…

How thankful are you for good health, should you enjoy such a state of being?

You should, but you never realize how good your health was until it starts deteriorating on you…

    Give a micro state a nuke and it will rule.

  2. These days if you weren’t sick when you went in, you likely will be after you’ve been seen. And don’t get me started about grocery carts. Those things should probably be sandblasted after each use!

  3. Nice to see a “newish” cartoon. I don’t think I’ve seen that one before. Doctors — especially at the hospital — really make you feel like dirty feet encountering clean sheets.

    Is that Rainy in the actual rain getting actual water in her rain gauge? Surely not…

  5. oooh thanks for tehe pina colada case… now we know the truth :O)

  6. HA! Love the ‘toon – sure applies these days for sure. All that screening when you arrive at reception in a doctor’s office makes you feel like you just MUST be sick to be there even if just having lab work. Shopping carts are the biggest petrie dishes in the universe…..EEEK.


  7. Thanks Bill for the warm welcome back! Hilarious ‘toon, but I expected nothing less! Sadly, I have first hand experience with the factual nature of that satire. Life is imitating art this time around! 🤨😲😞😟🤯 Have a simply splendid weekend!
