I’ve eaten possum, (tastes like chicken) but hey, it's free meat. I server my kids open face sandwitches with possum gravy. My kids used to say "Mo Possum Dad, Mo Possum!".
On TV, some reporter asked a redneck why bother eating possum when you can buy a chicken at the grocery store. He replied:
Possum is free; chicken costs money!
You don’t mind killing posssums because they are just nasty, giant hissing rats . . .
