How do you know which possum ate your parsley?

I stole this silly joke from a visitor at the allotment yesterday.

Question: How do you know which possum ate your parsley?

Answer: The one with sweet breath.

    Here in Tasmania it’s not THE possum with the sweetest breath at the moment but ALL of the possums have the sweetest breath as there isn’t much about aside from parsley to scoff in our gardens so its a wonder they haven’t all turned green the amount of parsley that they are pilfering! (tiny little possum “hulks” ranging free! 😉 )

      Sorry, I know there is nothing funny about Pilfering Possums but I had to laugh at your comment.

        Laugh away Jean…sometimes its all I can do to stop from crying when the little swines go on the rampage. We used to have all our potted babies inside the dog compound until Earl (the youngest dog) decided that he was an amateur horticulturalist and would help us prune our most expensive plants…usually underneath the graft…sigh so we had to put them all back outside at their peril. The wallabies and possums do less damage than a most determined Earl! 😉
