Stowaway opossum flown back to Toronto area after hitching a ride to Calgary

 A furry traveller is back home in the Toronto area  after hitching a ride to Calgary from Brampton, Ont.

A Virginia opossum somehow managed to hide in a truck carrying goods out of the city, approximately 40 kilometres northwest of Toronto.

When the truck arrived in Calgary on Sept. 19, crews unpacking the goods discovered the small stowaway.

"When the opossum was found he was thin and dehydrated, but miraculously still alive," the Toronto Wildlife Centre said in a statement on Thursday.

It was treated in Calgary and arrangements were made for the critter to be flown back to Ontario for further care.

The Toronto Wildlife Centre said the opossum arrived in the Greater Toronto Area on Friday afternoon.

Toronto officials said it was decided that the opossum should be brought back because the species is not found in Calgary.

Even carnivorous rats deserve our special love... and a seat on a jetliner.  **nononono*

Back to Toronto, eh? Has the possum made any statement as to which sex it identifies with?

It's not a rat. It's a marsupial [the only one in North America, I believe].

I have heard several of my fellow gun-owners swear that Hoppe's Gun Oil possesses aphrodisiac qualities, but this is carrying things a bit too far...

Phuc Dat Bich: Man posts passport to Facebook to prove his name is real



A Vietnamese-Australian called Phuc Dat Bich has spoken of his anger after repeatedly being blocked by Facebook.

The 23-year-old, whose name according to the Evening Standard is pronounced Phoo Da Bic, has posted an image of his passport on the social media site after it banned him several times.

His picture of proof, and its accompanying message, has been shared more than 123,000 times.

"I find it highly irritating the fact that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it," he said.

"I've been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive."

He went on to explain that his frustration was due to what he suggested was a lack of understanding in the West for names which appear amusing to some.

"Is it because I'm Asian? Is it?" he asked in the post.

"Having my (Facebook) shut down multiple times and forced to change my name to my 'real' name, so just to put it out there. My name.

"Yours sincerely, Phuc Dat Bich".

It is not the first time Facebook has blocked users from their profile accounts as a result of their name.

Most recently, a woman whose first name is Isis said Facebook would not let her sign in - tweeting that the social media site thought she was "a terrorist".
A man who changed his name to Something Long and Complicated - from William Wood - was blocked in October this year by the site.

Members of the Native American community have also reported having their accounts suspended, as well as members of the drag queen community.

Facebook's chief product officer, Chris Cox, issued an apology on the site after the latest incident.

The social media giant has an authentic name policy in place to make its users accountable for what they say.

"Brazilian police hunt Santa Claus who stole Sao Paulo helicopter"

Oh, I don't know. I just like the headline.

It's pretty much as ridiculous as it sounds.

Moral of the story: when blowing anything, always use proper protection, and watch for flying debris.

"Preachers argue for private jets because demons travel on normal ones"

For fairness and balance on this story be sure to read:

"New Obama vacation costs uncovered; They now exceed $70 million"
http://www.gopbriefingroom.com/index.php/topic,189004.0/topicseen.html

Also bear in mind that Copeland, Creflo Dollar, and Jesse Duplantis get their money from the voluntary donations of their supporters, who may be fools, but it's their money. When it comes to Obama he gets his money through coercing the taxpayers, including you.
