Well-intentioned Rebecca M. assures moi that possums are PERFECTLY wonderful and not the slightest bit evil, and sends this photo as proof.
Rebecca M. claims:
-They RULE in the Moist Nosicle category.
-They have a thumb without a nail on their back feet.
-They have elaborate whiskers.
-Their ears are pink when they're babies and turn black as they grow up.
-They CARRY LEAVES CURLED UP IN THEIR TAILS - Come ON!
-And let's not forget they carry their babies in a pouch - North America's only marsupial
Hmmm. I'm thinking. I'm thinking... LET ME THINK! [shifty eyes]
