    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'd hate to be accused otherwise.

    Send in The Huntsman!!!

    Couple watches in horror as massive huntsman spider eats a possum in their hotel room

    This is the last thing anyone would walk in on in their hotel room.

    A couple traveling across Tasmania in Australia witnessed a horrifying scene: a large huntsman spider eating what appears to be a pygmy possum. The large arachnid clung to the side of the door, clutching its prey and creeping out its unsuspecting audience.

    You’ve got to be kidding me.

    I had a sheriff sitting in front of my house. For an hour. Too embarrassed to get out of his cruiser. I went out And asked if he needed help. He had dog droopy eyes and asked me if I had a black cat.

    I said yes. I do have a black cat.

    He said well, someone called to report your cat because he hissed at her.

    I asked the cop, why did she attack my cat.

    Cop laughed. Nodded and said he’s sorry and has to respond to complaints.

    Not all cops are evil all the time. He took time of from being evil because it’s
    Goddamn funny that a county sheriff has to respond to my black bad ass cat who hissed at someone. Cats can’t bark.

    LOL, that reads like my local police report on a more exciting day- right between 'suspicious vehicle' and 'business check'.

    Once had a Doberman that loved people but HATED all other animals. A possum ended up on the wrong side of our fence one night. It did what possums do and tried to play possum. The dog was no dummy- "crunch!" and it was over.

    The cat is named whiskey. Baddest ass cat you ever met. About 6 pounds but he punches well above his weight.
