The Possum and the Snake
Possum was traveling down the highway looking for a place to cross. He was distracted by all of his fellow possums who didn't make it across the road. He was so distracted that he bumped in to a snake. Possum jumped almost three feet in the air and hid behind a tree. He slowly peaked around the tree to see the snake on the side of road with a brick on his back. Snake asked "Pleeassse help me. Get thisssss brick offfff my back." Possum responded nervously "Nnnnnnoo you will bbbite mmmeee. The snake promised not to bite him. Possum took the brick of his back. Of course Snake took a big bite out of Possum and held on tight. Rabbit was walking down the same road and saw Snake with a mouth full of Possum. Rabbit spoke "Howdy neighbors," Possum spoke "Hhhhowdy", but all Snake did was mumble because his mouth was full of possum. :How rude " Rabbit said to Snake. Snake spoke "Howdy" and Possum jumped free. Rabbit asked what happened. Snake told him how a brick fell off a truck and landed on his back trapping on the side of the road. Rabbit had Snake show him just how it happened including placing the brick back on his back. "Oh I see now." said Rabbit. Possum and Rabbit left the snake trapped under the brick. Moral: Don't help Snakes
