Face of the day

Face of the day is our short eared rabbit Bugs.

Ok he is not really a rabbit he is a apple eating tree bear.

Ok he is not really a bear he is a Venezuelan rat monkey.

Anyway he got into the pastries and when he finished he was unable to move.


This post is a work of fiction but the incident is real and the perpetrator was an Australian Possum who broke into a Zoo cafe and was found in the morning too stuffed to go anywhere. They should use him in their advertising.

Our pastries are so good once you have had one you will not be able to stop.

Actually Bugs looks like most of us feel at the end of Christmas day, particularly if you had Christmas lunch at your parents place then Christmas dinner at your inlaws place.

An image of a greedy possum slumped in a box of pastries after breaking into a bakery has gone viral.

The snap, apparently taken in Australia, roared through Twitter and Facebook with many a good-natured chuckle at the chubby critter.

But the coos turned to questions as accusations of Photoshoppery began to fly.

And as the ridiculously cute picture traversed the oceans, it’s accompanying story changed tack, with subsequent claims it had been taken in New York.

The only problem with that being, that American possums are considerably different looking. Others commentators have weighed in with the suggestion the animal is actually dead.

Blogger Petra Starke at justb. has donned her Sherlock Holmes hat and is investigating the mysterious case.

What do you think?

In the stories defence I have video evidence to prove that Australian Possums like buns so it is likely that they also like pastries especially if they are topped with fruit.
