I had just had a quarrel with my girlfriend and I was driving her home late one night. As we rounded the bend to her parents home we saw a dead possum in the road and its mate standing over it.
She started crying and said "Look how sad he is that his mate died."
At that momemt, the possum ripped a chunk of meat from the dead possum, tilted its head back like a crocodile and wolfed down the chunk.
I replied, "Yeah, he seems really torn up about it."
We broke up the next day.
