Why do I have the feeling that 1 and 2 are the same person and they're just monologuing?

Why do I feel it's just Vic covering for himself, and yet it's still Cosmo's fault?

Opossums turn clockwise to scream at their own butts, but possums turn counterclockwise.

Possums

Opossums

Both are cute, furry, marsupials, but that's where the connection ends.

I thought opossums were just surprised possums. Is that not right?


8 people marked this as a favorite.

A possum fell on me once. I somehow managed to catch it and it was all wide-eyed, trembling and scared. That lasted about a round, at which point it launched itself at my face and sank its teeth into my cheek, locking its jaws and going from cute, cuddly and adorable to savage little bastard in the blink of an eye. :o

Edit: that didn’t get censored so is presumably okay. Read it in an Australian accent and it’s definitely not offensive. If this font is American, I guess you might have to delete it...

It's Australia, Steve. Of course it was trying to kill you.

It doesn't help that Americans who live in areas where opossums are prevalent frequently refer to them as "possums".

I had no idea that Australia had their own possums, and that, as expected, they are vicious and probably venomous...

Actually there was mixup, Australia got the cute cuddly ones and we got the murder screamers.

Australian opossums are cuter then american IMO. They look much more proper too. like little gentlemen mammals while american possums look like they will cut you and throw you in a river. (except as pets they clean up nice.)

It's definitely a cantrip, there's no way Dave is only using that once or twice a day.

Was it clever? Absolutely! Was it a pun? Definitely not. Because good people don't pun, so I would never pun.

You can borrow my three-part rule:

"Mom, it's a 'mergency!!"

Me: "Is everyone still breathing?"
Kid: "Yeah"

Me: "Is everyone still conscious?"
Kid: "Yeah"

Me: "Is anyone bleeding really really bad?"
Kid: "No"

Me: "Then it's not an emergency. I'll be done in 30 minutes"

I've also had this rule with teams before when I'm crunching for a super important meeting or something similar. "Unless it's fire, flood, blood, or site down, please don't bother me until I come out."
