Yeah, I don't know what's going on with this woman and her opossum, but I'm going to file it under “Pets” (because she seems to keep opossums as pets), and “Science” (because it is an instructional video), and “Weird” (for obvious reasons), and “Art” (because when a video is this sublimely good, it can only be called art).

“I would never make a moral judgment on an opossum,” says ME Pearl, “and neither should you.”

Also available, ME Pearl's instructional video on Opossum Dental Care. Who is ME Pearl? According to her/its/their website, she/it/they is/are the spirit of a dead squirrel reincarnated into the body of a human woman. Or, in their words, “the very model of a modern psychic squirrel.” Riiight….

If the above videos have kindled your interest in opossums and pedicures and dental hygiene for smallish, slightly freaky wild marsupials, scurry on over to the Facebook page for Oh Possum!

Next up from WTF-land, how to give your sugar glider an enema. Okay. No. Not really.
