What is a possum?

cina said...

It's some kind of animal, isn't it?

mrs_dalloway said...

Possums are small marsupials with brown or grey fur, ranging in size from the length of a finger to the length of a forearm (brushtails and ringtails). All possums are nocturnal and omnivorous, hiding in a nest in a hollow tree during the day and coming out during the night to forage for food.(wiki)

It's okay,Jake..I think you could say it was self defence.The cops will understand.

cina said...

Yeah, I mean for god's sake, it could have been a blatant stalker in action!

He could hit me if he wants to. I volunteer!

JoyceDavenport said...

The Jake Watch legal assistance team is on hand to advise.

Jake when the cops arrive do not say:

'Aw man I'm sorry but I couldn't see a thing for these dark glasses'.

JoyceDavenport said...

Oh and Jake I'm glad to see after the flip flop incident you are at least wearing your seat belt.

Possums are small North American mammals that are fequently found dead on the side of the road because they don't scurry along fast enough.

They have gray fur, long narrow snouts, sharp little teeth and bare, snaky, rat-like tails. They are fiendish-looking, but actually rather harmless creatures.

They like to root through one's trash for food.

On the Beverly Hillbillies possum was a food staple.

They're also known as opossums but it's trendy if you're from the backwoods to take off the "o." It's OK Jake. There are a lot worse animals to run over. They have really nasty teeth.

The Bearded Lady said...

I can't believe im supplying possum photos,but all in the name of science and education.

Im still not sure about the new glasses, bring back the old ones i rekon. And what is this flip flop accident JoyceDavenport??? Did i miss something?!?!

JoyceDavenport said...

'Incident' Sam- although it could easily have turned into an accident. The day Jake bought out California's stock of San Pellegrino- see a few posts back- he was driving in flipflops. Very reckless and devil may care- he'll be staying out after midnight and skateboarding in the middle of the road next.

NOOO! I LOVE HIS AVIATORS!! The Blindes are fine too, but I think he looks drop dead sexy in his aviators. :-D

Prophecy Girl said...

^^^ AGREED! I love the new look.

Who knows where this whole throwing-caution-to-the-winds spree of his may end up?!?!

I have only two words for you, Jake.

Donnie Darko.

Katie said...

Agreed. I like this new look too - it's kind of grown up, suave, confident and not a little SEXY

razvanzlavog said...

i personally think he did it on purpose!like... for fun. :) After a while we all tend to hate litlle, not fast enough "things". way to go!

*poor possum, after all, Jake was a bit to harsh :D

Smurfeyshmoo said...

Well, did he at least get out and scrape it out of the middle of the road? My brother told me it was illegal to leave roadkill in the middle of the road, but judging by the amount of second-hand roadkill I've run over, he may be lying.

nice anonymous said...

I believe that Jake's the type that would feel bad if he ran over a possum.

But he's a real city boy.

So I don't think he's the type to throw it into his trunk, take it home & cook it for dinner.

Or toss its carcass back to the dogs for a play-toy.

Nah, too sensitive.

moonbeams said...

Well, it's the possum's fault now, really, isn't it?! I mean who ever heard of a possum trying to cross a busy street in Malibu! The pedestrian traffic is bad enuf! The damned possum should have known his place. I mean even when he's out cycling, Jake weaves and circles to avoid running over random grasshoppers and spiders and field mice. I worry that this will affect him. He's probably filled with guilt and remorse now.

cina said...

I once saw a TV program about a British old man who ate roadkilled animals. It didn't matter if they were all bloated and full of maggots, and he ate anything - badgers, foxes, birds... I don't think I've ever seen antything as repulsive in my life. And can you believe the man was married?!

britpopbaby said...

That was my Dad.

cina said...

I should have known. ;-)

Joyce,

I drive in flip flops all the time. They're safer than you think!!!

But I appreciate your concern for Jake.

britpopbaby said...

My Mum tries to yell at me when I go out with my flip-flops. She says they could get caught in the floor and I might not be able to hit the break. WTF? Has that ever happened to anyone, ever, in the history of time??!!!

Anonymous said...

^^Yes, but they didn't live to tell about it.

I wonder if Jake only has that one pair of flip flops. That type of footwear never seems to rotate like his Nike's.

Anonymous said...

He has more footwear than Imelda Marcos. lol

Anonymous said...

I love when he wears flip flops so his less than tan feet can have some exposure to the sun.

SquallCloud said...

He might slip his flip flops off to drive.

SquallCloud said...

This seems like a very Guilded Moose entry. That's not a dis. I love GM. Not more than JW though! *kisses*

S4M985 said...

i found out that its illegal to drive in flip flops in england? Is that true? thats what they told me when i was there last month... oh my, coming from australia i drive in the ALL the time!!! -i even have a flip flop tan!!! Infact im about to go out and drive in them now!! Shame on me

JakesJules said...

Its also illegal to drive in flip flops (thongs down here) in Australia too. And platform shoes, it impairs your driving ability apparently....

Jake they are so not safe. Stop trying to justify yourself. I bet you get nagged by your mum just as much as Britpop- and quite right too!

Joyce,
Is it legal to toss a flip flop out the window at a rude driver?

Remember filp flops are soft.

JoyceDavenport said...

^^^I think flip flop tossing is probably illegal on two counts:

1 Lack of attention to the road = careless / reckless driving- like driving while speaking on your mobile- which I really sincerely hope no one here does.

2 Littering.

Oh Joyce, trust me. Flip Flops pose no threat to others on the road. I am an excellent driver.
