    I grew up in a big old farmhouse and once, my dad carried an opossum he’d found next to our barn for about thirty feet while walking toward the house with it before it snarled and he realized it was still alive.

    That’s why they call it “playing possom”

    One time I was walking around in a barn’s haymow – where all the hay was stacked. I came around a corner and a possom was sitting 3 feet away, eye level, and hissing at me. I almost had a heart attack I was so scared. Such an ugly creature.

    I was on Storybookland Canal Boats at Disneyland a few years ago. They have all these miniature villages and houses. Out of nowhere, a possum comes out and starts crawling on one of the villages. It was awesome; it looked like Godzilla Possum.
