Unintentional, and hilarious, irony
(Raleigh N&O) A Wake County judge has ordered a halt to the annual Opossum Drop in the mountain community of Brasstown, a victory for animal rights groups who called lowering the marsupial in a tinsel-covered box on New Year’s Eve is inhumane.
See, all sorts of animal rights whiners have gone whiny whiner over slowly lowering a possum on New Years. Here’s where it gets funny
“WRC should therefore have instructed Logan to immediately release the opossum into the wild where the opossum had been captured, or kill it,” Morrison wrote in his order.
Heh! I bet the possum would prefer the cushy life of getting fed, blazing around, and having to be in a box once a year to being killed.
The story also illustrates the idiocy of government overreach, since the judge ruled the way he did due to the store owner not having the “right permits” to keep a possum. Silly.
