I Hate When the Characters Are Off-Panel

Born Loser 03-17-09
I was taught incorrectly that it was possum and my 26 years of bad teachings will never get me to an opossum "opossum" in casual conversation. However, while looking for the correct term for the opossum I came upon this:
Originally native to the eastern United States, the Virginia Opossum was intentionally introduced into the West during the Great Depression, probably as a source of food.

A source of food. That's something they don't teach you in school (and if they do, I didn't go to that school).

Oh and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, too, Chip. And to all of my readers. Be safe.

I've come across several Louisiana cookbooks with recipes for opossum. According to people I know who've eaten opossum, you have to keep it for three days and feed it white bread and water before you cook it, otherwise it'll taste like garbage.

i like the fact that it looks like her vagina is say "Happy St.Patrick's Day". other than that, the comic is a throw-away.
