#1 What Would Rednecks Do?

Instead of my usual Saturday Hillbilly Mom's Movie Challenge, I am
starting "What Would Rednecks Do?" There is an answer that I have
in mind, but there is certainly more than one correct answer. This
week's question:

You find a possum sleeping in your driveway as you are leaving for
work. It is still there in the afternoon when you return. You just can't
have a possum in your driveway indefinitely. The neighbors might think
less of you. What Would Rednecks Do?

    bring it inside and make it a pet! complete with a name and a place to sleep... and something to nibble on of course?

    Shoot it? Or run it over a few times?

    I say you run over it, and then make some grub and grits. Then tan the hide and make yourself a good hat for Junior.

    Rachel, uh, I don't know how to break this to you, but...if a possum has been lying in driveway all day, uh, he might not make a very good pet, and uh, he is gonna be sleeping for a very long time. Like eternity.

    Misha,
    Let those feeling out, girl!

    Bec, are you a recycler?

    I'll post the answer tomorrow. It will be Sunday for me, but I guess it will be something else for all you other-side-of-the-world dwellers.

    Well, our dog would've made short work of the sleeping marsupial long before it ever had a chance to nap. Actually, what am I saying - my dog is a wuss. He'd have run off to the barn, cowering in fear. Anyway, as soon as Mr. Diva would see our napping visitor he'd grab the gun and shoot it. Not once, but about 47 times. Because this is what rednecks do. (Then he'd throw it either out in the field for the buzzards or out in the brush for the coyotes or whatever.)

    Oh and by the way, it wouldn't matter if I tried to tell my husband repeatedly the the varmint is dead...he'd shoot it anyway. Repeatedly. Over and over.

    i come from a long line of rednecks as sad as that makes me to admit and i've given some thought as to what "the cousins" would do in this particular situation. my redneck cousins would:

    A: toss it nextdoor into the yard of their neighbors, which would most likely be kin, thus making it "their" problem.

    B: let thier kids play with it and assume it had been properly disposed of when it didn't reappear in the driveway.

    C: Take it to uncle bud, who completed a 3 week "taxidermy from home" course, and have him mount it in an "angry bear" pose.

    or (and most likely)

    D: Put it in the front seat of their wife's car so she'll almost die of a heart attack the next time she tries to leave the house.

    I can't believe I overlooked this until the answers were posted. I will totally be winning next week, just so you know.

    I wondered why we hadn't heard from your corner of Redneckland. You will have some competition from Redneck Diva, because sometimes it seems like she has my HH, what with the things that go on in her red neck of the woods.

    but the possum is not dead mummy, he's just sleeping!

    Yeah, that's what the kids said. Maybe I should explain to them the concept of "taking a dirt nap."
