The opossums probably deserve a little cruelty. Raccoons too. Those furry bastards would raid my grandparents' chickens and rabbit pens. Death is too good for opossums.

I don't understand the headline.  It might because I'm old, but maybe not.

The etymology of the term is sketchy, but terms like "aping" give some insight. You see, primates mimic each other's actions, so a prank monkey is someone who goes along with the prank, but ends up being the target of the prank. Think about a group of males lined up at the edge of a pier, they all act like they're going to jump, but the instigators have not intention of doing so, the ones that do are the prank monkeys.

The title of the article ended with a question mark. Without reading the rest of the article I feel confident answering:

No.

I wondered why I got only one funny for using prank monkey the other day in the Tobey McGuire offering a madam money to bark like a dog

So no more spanking the monkey? Those uptight bastards.

Then again, I only need that when I'm not getting any possum.

You have the power to change it up. You just have to know how to suck the right dick.

Wow, NC made two Fark headlines in one day.  The "special-needs" and homeschooled kid in makeup at the DMV (who was a former Fark article about urban chickens) and now the 'Possum Drop.  Now, if the rest of the country could ever hear about how the bribed politicians have welcomed Fracking into the state, with open arms.  Queue Journey piano music.

Thanks.

Subby, I don't think that phrase means what you think it means.

fark the "Cool" tag on this story and anyone who thinks possums could "use a little cruelty."  And fark North Carolina politicians too while we're at it.
