    High five everybody! Do you hear that sound? It's me popping bottles.

    Seven long years ago P. Novak queried the world with "Opossum as Pet?" Then that rascally Matt K got involved (not me, I swear), and the reputation of pet possums everywhere has suffered ever since.

    Have you ever seen those heartwarming viral videos where a deaf person hears for the first time, or somebody that's colorblind puts on a pair of glasses, and WHAM, now they can see color? That's how I feel right now about pet possums.

    Excuse me while I head down to the holler. I've got possums to catch.

    As it was told to me, How To Make A Possum Dinner

    Find one medium to large road kill possum - fresh, none too flat.
    Nail possum to a board
    Bake in over at about 700 degrees for a few hours
    Take out board, remove nails, scrape off the possum
    Eat the board.

    When my momma was a kid, her daddy would live trap a young possum and put it in a cage. They would feed it exclusively sweet potatoes for a while to make the meat sweet and mild. Then they would dress it out and have possum for dinner.

    This thread was created 7 years ago. Where have you guys been since then? Did you go on hibernation and woke up to revive the thread?
