This same technique works on That Guy Who Won’t Shut Up
“It Took a Woman from Alaska to Remove a Wild Possum from a Brooklyn Bar”? Isn’t that a Conway Twitty song?
We had a possum in the yard that got scared by the dog and was playing possum. Wouldn’t move. Pushed with a stick - nothing.
I turned the hose on it & it shot away like a rocket.
Use the seltzer spray guys!
Better outcome than the guy who grabbed (and got bit by) the raccoon in the stadium.
We’ve always had possums, this baby was practicing playing possum in our yard. The wife was worried, we just waited and it got up and moved on.
grabbed the critter by the scruff, which was hiding in a corner of the bar,
Why was its scruff hiding in a corner of the bar? Had it run away from the critter?
When I was growing up in Queens we never saw opossums, but they are much more common now. This article and other rumors say they were introduced in Brooklyn recently and have spread since. The surrounding country always had them, but they were not common in the 5 boroughs until recently.
Well did anyone see her come in with it?
Seems like a pretty decent scheme for some free drinks…
Panicked because a possum walked in for christ sake. Was it carrying a gun? Was it calling people by name? Did it steal drinks. Pathetic
Not all heroes wear capes.
Poor guy, probably just wanted a pint!
I like possums, they are mostly harmless and eat a lot of pests. I think they are cute, other than their tails.
Only if it’s about George Jones.
And they don’t get rabid. They’re kinda ugly but pretty much harmless (says one who knows one)
In NYC there used to be only 4 forms of wildlife: rats, pigeon (aka rats with wings), gray squirrels (aka rats with fuzzy tails) and roaches. I knew a kid from Brooklyn who never saw a cricket. The first one he saw he though it was a roach.Opossums register as very large rats. Scares the living hell out of people who never saw one before. They were very rare. Now they are more common.
And they eat ticks.
They are Not ugly, just handsome in their own way.
Possum: “Hey, I’m not done with my drink!”
