Norfolk, Va. – A pregnant Norfolk woman called NewsChannel 3 saying a possum had fallen through her bedroom ceiling! She was so terrified when she saw it she grabbed her gun and shot it in the nose.

Previously, she tried to take action and contact her property manager many times about scratching noises in her ceiling. We took action for her.

When NewsChannel 3 showed up at Andrea Baskerville’s Norfolk apartment, we found blood, feces and urine scattered around her bedroom.

Too bad she didn't try to talk the possum out of the situation. /sarcasm

Tougher possum sentencing laws could have prevented this.

Well, it’s not a Topless VooDoo Priestess.

But you can’t expect that kind of luck everyday.

We took action for her.

Acting with the full support of the Obama Department of Justice, we rescued the possum, confiscated her firearm, aborted her baby, and presented her a bill for our services.

You think those hormones were making her a mite excitable?

Hey, even a non-hormonal lady would be upset when a large rat falls through her ceiling.

OMG, LOL. Many years back, my mother-in-law called us saying that a big rat was in her apartment. (Long story short. We owned a four unit building and parents lived in one unit.) We immediately went to check. The big rat was a possum which entered through an opened pipe wall. It must have gotten into the basement and came through the opened pipe access between wall and bath which we did not close after repair of a water leak. My hubby used a broom to lead it out the back door. The pipe access was closed immediately.

One of my cherished childhood memories is what happened when the pastor’s pet possum went to church and perched in the rafters above the pulpit.

I was talking to an old black man about eating possum. He said he will put one in a cage for a month and feed it castor oil. It makes the possum crap all the grease out of it’s system. I swear this is true.

I had a customer who came in talking about the biggest damned rat he had ever seen. It was sitting on his kitchen table eating left over pizza. I loaned him a Havahart trap and he caught a nice possum.

My mother’s family would let a live catfish ‘marinate’ in a cattle trough for a day or two to leach out the Okie mud. Same/same.

Words containing the letter "p" were used.

Some which had never been spoken in that pulpit prior. :)

Now, I cannot let that pass without posting The Mississippi Squirrel Revival. (Ray Stevens)

"When NewsChannel 3 showed up at Andrea Baskerville’s Norfolk apartment..."

"'Possum of the Baskervilles" sounds like a Gary Larson cartoon caption.
