Somewhat interesting thread on Facebook last night; a friend posted the fact that he had a dead possum in his back yard. His concern was his small dogs. He felt he had to remove the possum from his yard to protect his dogs.
Well there came a bevy of responses some humorous some not.
“How do you know it is dead? It may just be playing possum.
Pick it up, if it bites you it is not dead, otherwise not sure.
Possums are good eating, enjoy.”
The posters concern was disposing of said possum.
“Put in a dumpster.
Bury it in the snow.
Do nothing, the ants and buzzards will take care of it.”
Poster not really sure it is dead.
“Put a bullet in its head.
Don’t have a gun.
Use a baseball bat”
And then a lady from Florida said. “Don’t have a gun? I live in Florida and we all have guns down here, need them for our protection.”
A couple of us got on her about guns and the stupidity of owning them.
The original poster removed entire thread before it got too nasty.
My question to all and any is. Is that really the general feeling in Florida? Have the citizens of that state been brainwashed to such an extent that they all feel they have to have a gun for protection?
Is the state overrun with thugs racing about in an effort to rape and pillage at will?
Why do you people from Florida think like that?
