from my brother

My brother Sean sends me this link: Possum Eating Strawberry.

My emailed reaction to Sean's link:

What did you think of this video? I've seen possums in the wild, including one playing dead, and I thought they were ugly, revolting creatures—long, evil snout, beady raccoon eyes, rat's tail, mean disposition, and creepy, humanoid hands. With that mindset, I watched this video and was grossed out by the possum's awful chewing noises. Then, incredibly, the woman (an older woman, judging by the wrinkles on her hand) started stroking(!!) the possum, and I just waited for the damn thing to bite her.

I hate to say this, but if I ever caught a possum in my house, I'd either figure out how to eject it or kill it outright. Call me racist against opossums.

Your thoughts on playing (with) possum?
