Three Iowa 19-year-olds charged in torture of opossums
Iowa used to have some of the most intelligent and well-adjusted youth in the country. I used to take educational assessment tests as a boy which proved I was more capable than 99 percent of even the children in Iowa in most subjects. Math was always the exception but I still scored in the 90s.
George W. Bush used to do this kind of things to frogs out in Midland. He'd put lit firecrackers in their mouths and blow them up like so many Iraqis. Little Shrubya used to reply to friends who'd caught such amphibians for his sadistic use and pleasure, "Bring 'em on!" It'd make him "hornier" than the frogs.
These 'opossums' in Iowa must be of Irish origin. Down here we just call them possums. Rhonesboro has a museum of 'possumology' or used to.
