Speaking of Possums, I caught this one going through a UPS delivery... he ruined my Ricoh K100D

Great capture. Did the critter taste like bacon?

Are possum chips like cow or buffalo chips? I know you can make a fire with the latter for melting Velveeta but ....
I made up the possum chips but..aren`t the cow and buffalo more like patties or mines.
I have no doubt that, possum, if carbonized properly, would make for a nice fire-starter.
edit: unless K3 is cow poop proof, I might not buy it.

My daughter raised an orphaned possum until he was big enough to fend for himself. They have a nasty, musky smell. Never had the desire to find out what he tasted like. I wonder if cheese and lutefisk were the cause of his odor?
One night when my wife and I were dating we were sitting on her parents' verandah talking (really) when a possum waddled across the walkway before us, looked up at us and moved right on, followed by a string of nine little imitation possums. They left behind one big smell and nine little smells.

Kinda shot the atmosphere of the evening.

IIRC we moved indoors and ate Triscuits and cheese.

They make "Goo be gone". Might not be healthy if applied directly on skin thou. You might have to consider the risks, before going for any of these cures.

Wait! Is this thread about cheese or possums? I won't buy a K-3 until I figure that out.

This thread is about igunaq and niku, Inuktitut for jerked meat made from sun-dried possum. And skunks, some of which I suspect may be albino possums that have had black gaffer's tape applied horizontally to camouflage themselves. And polar votexes or polar bears. Or something like that. I think I lost the thread of this thread somewhere around post 1377, something about world domination. Making me too confused to even contemplate buying a second K3.

Not Safe For Waffles Nor for the K3, so not buying that just yet.

Actually, that would be a type of seasoning.
You need to get that mind out of the cheese gutter before the bacon-police show up
edit: NSFRK (road-kill) rating might be in order.
