Miss Cellania posted about a raccoon that had to be rescued after falling into a garbage dumpster ... well, that's nothing compared to the travail this critter had to go through:
When it comes to toilets, there's a simple directional rule: everything goes downstream. When things move against the tide, then you have problems.
So as Tim Fraser was doing some laundry in his bathroom last Friday night, he became a wee bit disturbed when his toilet started spontaneously gurgling.
"I could see bubbles coming up and I thought 'what the the hell is happening?'" he said, recalling that evening.
Then he caught sight of a grey, furry head with a pair of pointy ears and saucepan eyes emerging on this side of the s-bend.
Moments later there was a half-drowned possum sitting in his Fowler toilet bowl.
"It was like the toilet had given birth," he said.
And what did Tim do first? Why, he grabbed a digital camera, of course! And thanks to that, we have a YouTube clip.
