Roadkill Resuscitation Unsuccessful!

– – Happy April Fool’s Day, but I swear that I am not making this up, and hope that you are not eating:  State police have charged a central Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen giving mouth-to-mouth “resuscitation” to a long-dead opossum along a highway…

The incident occurred in Oliver Township about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.  The 55-year-old man was seen by one person kneeling before the deceased animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance, while another saw the mouth-to-mouth attempt.   It’s not that this publication doesn’t appreciate the effort to save viable animals, but this was an ex-possum…

Possibly he was then planning to fit the opossum with sunglasses in hopes  of pursuing some “Weekend at Bernie’s” action…

    On a lighter note: have you ever stopped to consider how an inner-city kid might react upon attending one of those rural sleep-away camps, and seeing an opposum for the first time?

    “Holy crap! And, I thought the rats in _my_ neighborhood were freaking big!”

    I prefer to make my own; mostly pb&j.
