    Found in the paper...
    Animal Complaints:
    6pm: A hissing possum was reported behind a downtown restaurant.

    He must have been hissing very loudly or in a threatening manner to make the paper.

    In fact I bet he sounded like this...

    Most neighborhoods in Boston have a " Hissing Possum " problem in their own backyards . . . .

    Hissing Possum sounds like the name of an Alabama punk band.

    Or as the blogger of the late lamented Rumford Meteor would have said,
    "Coincidentally, 'Hissing Possum' is the name of my new Alabama tribute band".

    A possum is that flat thing that sleeps in the road. Jack.

    Sometimes when a really fat woman walks you can hear a hissing possum.

    interesting. The only time slaves had free to hunt was at night, and possums are nocturnal...hence possum recipes abound in black history

    Hey, wait a cotton-picking minute.

    Is that a photo of the actual news clipping,
    or just some file footage?

    NES Watch wants to know.

    It's real!

    I am a journalist!

    I'd hate to be accused otherwise.
