An Olympic Sport for Couch Potatoes

Watch these baby possums closely! They are demonstrating the soon-to-be-official Olympic sport of Synchronized Chewing. Yes, as people get flabbier and flabbier, even the athletes, we’re gonna need some new sports that nobody cares about except when the Olympics is on TV. But remember–baby possums did it first.

Note: I brought a baby possum into my bedroom once, but my mother thought it was a rat and had a major freak-out over it. So the possum had to go.

My wife once had a pet possum that had babies in the house. The cats were persuaded not to bother them.

  1. Isn’t it amazing that our Maker created all of these animals with their own unique appeal. They are cute as can be if synchronized chewing performance is a study in precision. 🙂

    Thanks for posting this, Lee.

  2. Baby possums are adorable, for sure!

    UnKnowable, you’re so right. Our Creator’s Mind would be impossible for us to comprehend – even given an eternity to try. And I, for one, am so grateful and thankful for that. We would never have thought of the gifts He’s given us 🙂

    1. Thank you, Lee. Update coming soon. Tomorrow another doctor. Last week was crazy busy with doctors, one of which was a first meeting with radiologist. Very intricate stuff, which requires additional tests first. Ugh! (in any case – no chemo)

  3. I came across an opossum on top of my privacy fence in the middle of the day and was convinced he was dead. I asked my wife if I should call animal control and have them investigate. She just laughed and said he was just playing opossum. Sure enough, later on I saw him climbing along the fence. I thought they were exclusively nocturnal creatures.
