I’m not even sure what to say about this… It definitely follows under the obscure. It’s been on my reader for a few days, and I was finally curious enough to check it out. “Proper Opossum Pedicure” is the title. I found this on BoingBoing.net and from what I read, I don’t think they knew what to make of it either. Apparently this lady (Pearl?) has a few opossum videos on youtube, and a website. I probably should have checked it all out before I posted, but after watching this video I had to share it. I’ll probably spend the rest of the night puzzled over this. I’m not buying that she is for real, she’s playing a character, but what for? Is this some viral campaign? Is it for fun? Is she trying to promote something (herself maybe…)? I don’t know. Possums, or Opossums as she keeps saying it (I’m not sure which is correct), are pretty creepy though. I see these critters all around my apartment, and they are the ugliest creatures I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t imagine wanting to pick one up as a pet, much less giving it a pedicure. Anyhow, check out the video and let us know what you think.
