Crazy game I guess...

And this one time we (it was myself and the girlfriend and then 3 other friends that were in the area for a car show the next day) took a trip to Walmart because we had nothing better to do. The one friend was actually talking about opossum beating on the way! Anyways, we're driving along when one comes running out into the road... I yelled "Opossum!" and the guy (the one who was talking about opossum beating) yelled "HIT IT!" so I stepped on the gas and smacked it with both tires.

We turned around to make sure it was dead... Only to find out it was a pregnant opossum mommy; now dead and all of her little babies were scattered over the road. The one girl that was with us started crying and so we decided to go and continue on... I floored it again only to run over the mommy once again with both tires along with several of the scattered babies.

Needless to say, I felt pretty crappy about the event at the time, but look back now and laugh about it.

I hope you're Joking and cause it's hard to tell from your story online. If not, thats a story you want to keep to yourself, especially because you seem to easy going about it....

I think something is wrong upstairs
