You're going into the ground tonight, and that's all there is to it.

The possum really wishes Bob and PETA would shut the hell up - its choice is being dropped as a New Years Eve ball or being dropped in a pot.

I love Bob Barker. I really think I will cry when he passes. Although I don't agree with his involvement with PETA, I have to admire his life long commitment to animals and animal rights.

They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you!

The bigger question is why is NC dealing in foreign fauna.

That part of NC is so hillbilly you're right. That's Deliverance country.

Bob wouldn't have a problem if they wanted to put Holly & Dian in the cage with some possums.

Dude might like animals, but he didn't exactly treat the ladies with much respect.

Dear NC, fark you for making me agree with PETA. Are you out of puppies to kick or something?

Look at it from the possum's perspective. Note that the possum is considered 'vermin' and no sane person sheds a tear over one or a thousand getting killed, but somehow this ONE being put in a cage, then released, is horrible animal abuse...

First of all,  it's an opossum. You see thousands of them dead on the road here in Michigan. They die more than raccoons or squirrels. They most certainly aren't suffering from a low population, either. While I get that the creature might be a little freaked out, there are worse fates for an opossum these days. I bet that one's pampered.

Second, I'm not a cannibal, but PeTA should know that this poster actually makes me hungry for a nice rump roast or round.

When I see this picture, "I should stop eating meat" is the last thing to go through my mind.

This just in: PETA is full of retarded hippies who get their panties in a twist over everything.

Should Bob Barker be the real focus on the story here?  Are they actually telling us that somewhere in NC they place a possum in a cage and lower it to the ground on New Year's Eve?

I'm glad we've solved unemployment and the infrastructure crisis and we have time to focus on these issues.

I'll take two rumps, a couples of breasts, and a keel.

BTW, the local gas station sells fried chicken, and calls one of the white meat pieces 'keels'.  I have yet to find anyone who can tell me what part of the chicken that is - not even my brother with a 2 year degree in cooking.  Can anyone tell me if I'm eating a chicken's bunghole, cause that's what it sounds like.

/Not that I'll stop even if that is its original location; that's some good eatin'.

Bob Barker can fark off. When he stops funding terrorism, I'll be more interested in what he has to say.

... until he started funding terrorists. Once Bob started donating money, knowingly, to active ecoterrorists, he became part of the problem, not part of the solution.

No, I recognize the original. It's just one of many songs whose original I can't hear without polka accompaniment.

No, I had a different mental image from the words "possum drop." Nevermind.

This reminds me of a Red Green episode where the guys at Possum Lodge dress Harold as a possum and stick him in old car tires when the Canadian version of the ASPCA protest their annual possum drop.

LMGTFY... It's apparently the bone in the center of the breast. My guess is that it's some prude's attempt to avoid saying "breast" by separating it into two ribs and a keel. Or some penny-pincher's attempt to make more money by selling more pieces.

This is just our "job creating" legislature passing bills that are critical to the state. As soon as they are done allowing possums to be lowered in a cage, and firing all the regulatory boards and replacing them with yes-men, and reducing unemployment checks and cutting time you can spend getting unemployment checks, and giving money to the Panthers so their poor and penniless owner can have his stadium renovated, and telling the Federal government no, NC does not want to be part of the insurance exchange program, and approving a voter ID bill, and allowing fracking and offshore drilling to take place, why, they are going to get right on creating those jobs the state so desperately needs!

Pretty much this. It sounds like a really bizarre tradition, but just the same, that caged opossum in NC certainly must fare better than, say, opossums on my parents' farm.

In the total scheme of things, lowering an opossum in a cage is small in the scheme of things.

How about a nutria?

I've seen the possum drop.  It's no big deal.  Less than Go Topless Day in Asheville, but with a more pleasant bunch of participants.
