I Guess His Intentions Were Good...!


Once in a while, folks that imbibe a bit might have a tendency to go too far!

One little problem with having a bit too much is that some folks think they can accomplish the impossible! A good case in point is this gentleman.

Man Tries to Revive Dead Opossum; Police Say Alcohol Involved

3:01 p.m. PDT, March 26, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. -- Police say they charged a Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen trying to resuscitate a long-dead opossum along a highway.

State police Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe, of Brookville, near the animal Thursday along Route 36 in Oliver Township, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The trooper says one person saw Wolfe kneeling before the animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance.

He says another saw Wolfe attempting to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Levier says the animal already had been dead a while.

Ya know, if I were this man...I think I would lay off the hooch for a while. Just my suggestion, you understand! However, I think I would certainly feel strange if I was trying to revive a dead possum and someone saw me. Who knows how embarrassing it would be if some one had taken a picture?

Maybe we had better get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a while. Don't worry...no dead possums around the patio!

I'm sure the story of him giving mouth-to-mouth to a road-killed possum won't do much for his love life for some time to come!

Hey Gorges...
I'm thinking you are right! I'll bet that he is going to have some really bad breath for quite a while!

Hey, thanks for coming by today!

Hey Griper...

Thanks for coming by today!

I´m laughing so tears flow now :-) :-) :-) I do wonder how he feels now after sobering up :-) :-) But yes I think his intensions were good :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day and thank for the laugh!

That's a disturbing image, but really funny.

HermitJim said...

Hey Christer...
I'd be willing to bet he has a very bad hangover! That is going to be REALLY bad when he finds out just what he was doing, I think!

I appreciate you coming by this morning!


Hey Sixbears...
The mental image is disturbing on so many levels, but like you say...it is funny!

Ought to be a t-shirt in there somewhere!

Moving to another state may be a good option at this point!

Thanks, buddy, for coming by!

YUCK! I wouldn't let him near my mouth ever. LOL He really needs to get dried out somewhere.
I'll join you for a cup this morning my Special One.

It might make more sense if it were a cute furry thing, but a opossum. Really???

HermitJim said...

Hey JoJo...
I have a feeling that many more ladies might have the same reaction!

Let's just hope he is already married, as a girlfriend might be out of the question right now!

I appreciate you coming over today, sweetie!


Hey DD...
You are so right! A possum is pretty ugly on the best of days!

I know from experience their looks don't improve when turned into roadkill! I would imagine the smell is pretty bad as well!

Must have been some stout stuff the old boy was drinking!

Thanks, my friend, for coming by today!

Went out my back door one day and this half grown possum keeled over, "dead". No mouth to mouth, but i did stop and watch til it jumped up and ran off. "dead" was very convincing. lolololol

btw, i thot it was really cute.

How much alcohol was involved you reckon? I know for me, there ain't that much to make me kiss a opposum! Now will admit I've kissed some less than gorgeous women in an alcohol induced state. But NEVER kissed no wild animals of any kind!! :-)

HermitJim said...

Hey Trouble...
They can be convincing when playing dead! In fact, they even furnish some convincing "odor" to make it more realistic!

If you turn them right side up when they are playing dead, they will slowly turn back to lying on their back...no matter how many times you try and change it!

I really appreciate the visit today!


Hey Ben...
I'm in line with that train of thought my self!

I do hope that I never get that drunk!

Thanks, buddy, for coming by today!

What was that stuff he was drinking? Must have been pretty potent!
