    I'm hoping these were taxidermied opossum!

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    They might be live pets. It would be alot funnier if they were alive IMO.

    It would be hilarious! But, don't play with opossum, they bite. (Or can be rabid if not raised at home.) At least it beats turning them into stew.

    Oh GROSS!!!!!!!!!!

    That is beyond bizarre. Those things are so ugly, I don't know why anyone would even want to touch them, let alone dress them up like some crazy deformed American Girl Dolls.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Talking Playing Possum

    Even though this commercial doesn't have that endearing gecko, I whenever I see it.

    Talking

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought it meant a cooking contest using possums to make "dressing" ( what people NOT from the South call "stuffing") . I really do know some folks who still kill and eat possum, one woman cooks it in her crock pot! That's a little too country for me!
    See, I still have most of my marbles!
