There are only two places in the world where creatures of such name exist, so you had a 50/50 chance of being right, your assumption wasn't exactly a stupid one.

But yes, Australia has much cuter possums than we do, although ours aren't that bad once you earn their trust I hear. And they're good at controlling pests like ticks, which is great.

Gonna dress up as lazy urkel for halloween.

I have a shoestring for the glasses strap
Tape for the glasses bridge
white socks
rolled up dockers
turquoise suspenders
turquoise bowtie
flannel short sleeved shirt.

Anything missing?  I am not going to wear bowling shoes...  And kind of unsure if the sweater vest is required to make it work...  like do kids under the age of 30 even know who urkel is anymore?

In the early to mid 90s, there was a show featuring a nerdy african american boy, named Steve Urkel.

Think "Progenitor to Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper", but with a more normal family, dressed in 90s cliches.

O- is the Swedish prefix for Un-, so for us an Opossum is just an Un-Possubility

That's fine, us horrible yanks shorten it to 'possum anyway.  Only biology cranks call them oppossums.

Did a grocery shop earlier, finally.
Now I'm relaxing with some delicious vegan lasagna (lasagne?) and a cheap beer to wash it down. ^-^

The most interesting thing is that Urkel was originally a one-off neighbor character in one episode of the sitcom he's in. But he was so popular they brought him back and eventually almost the entire show ended up revolving around his antics. Or more specifically, they managed to keep the zombie corpse of the show shuffling along for many more years than otherwise due to people tuning in to see what zany shit Urkel would get up to.

Edit: this is similar to The Fonz from Happy Days. Originally, he was a side character, but like Urkel he was so idiosyncratic and popular with viewers that the show ended up mostly being about him.

I used some of the spare time (which is a lot of time) during one of my shifts to create a custom dictionary for Typing of the Dead: Overkill for medical terminology. It's only a little more than 300 words, and the difficulty is only modest, but I did a thing:

And then he jumped the shark
