The Republican ideal worker. Hard working, and all you have to do is feed them.

No word on if the ashes will be encased in a glass-fronted keepsake box and placed on the baby grand.

Double awesome.

Pointy Tail of Satan: The Republican ideal worker. Hard working, and all you have to do is feed them.

Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil

But if you ask for a rise
It's no surprise that they're
Giving none away

These folks don't know many rehabbers obviously.

/cremation gets cheaper in bulk.

We haven't even touched upon the foul liquid emitted by their anal glands.

My wife was a wildlife rehabber for many years and we are at the northern end of their range. It's pretty unusual to see a possum here that isn't sporting visible frost damage in the form of tail stumps or missing digits. She had to bring home a juvenile more than once over the weekend and I got to hold one about this size:

They are noticeably cooler to the touch than other mammals, and even without the "go into a coma, foam at the mouth and smell dead" reflex they exhibit, they smell pretty gamey. Also, their tiny, koala-like brains and vaguely reptilian snouts just give you a feeling that they appeared to scavenge the dinonsaur corpses as is and haven't seen fit to evolve much since. They are fascinating and a little horrible at the same time.

The worst things about Possum cremations are the screams of "AIIIIEEEEEE, YOU EEEEDIOTS, I WAS JUST PLAYING MYSELF!  MY BIGGEST REGRET IS NOT GETTING AN OSCAR NOD!" coming from the oven.

TheWhoppah: Proper  OPOSSUM MASSAGE

Gotta say, that was weirdly interesting. I was hoping she might Prancercise with the opposum too.
2014-01-19 03:15:20 PM  
They waited a couple of months to bury him? Was he freaking embalmed?!
2014-01-19 03:30:03 PM  
Possums are evil incarnate. I have always despised them AND one had the audacity to move into the pile of junk (my mother's junk) on our deck, stink the place up and grow fat on my cat food.

/they are spittle in the face of humanity.
//and they look creepy
2014-01-19 03:41:31 PM  

nullptr: They waited a couple of months to bury him? Was he freaking embalmed?!

They wanted to make sure he was really dead.

The mourners were truly a sight
As they loudly wept in daylight.
But of course, each big sob
Was for sweet natured Bob-
There's no doubt that he'd urned the right!

Man! And I thought the lady and the kid leaned over a little to close in the picture, it being a possum.

I'm getting a kick out of these comments as this is the second possum cremation I've heard tell of. The first caught a house on fire when it was shoved in a pot belly stove.

He will be sorely missed.

Good night, funnyman.
