Possum Kingdom

I received this in the mail today and it totally cracked me up. It is an advertisement for a new master-planned lakeside community called "The Hills Above Possum Kingdom Lake." I'm sorry but this is just too much. Possum Kingdom? Who in the world would want to live in a place called Possum Kingdom other than a possum? It looks like a nice place and a pretty lake, but I could never live anywhere with a marsupial as my leader. I am drawing the line here.

Note: If you are reading this and have just purchased land there, I apologize for any offense.

Possum Kingdom, huh? I'm with you Holly -- I am not participating in a place with that name. When we lived in Nashville, our stake took in a place called Possum Trot, Kentucky. Maybe it's near there! hahahah! :)

Crap! We just bought a lake house out there...we thought Possum Kingdom was a charming name...Holly, that is SO funny! I cannot imagine thinking Possum Kingdom is a good name to call 'home.' :)

listen here Ms. I dislike marsupial leaders,

Possum Kingdom lake is a very lovely community. the fact that you dislike those of us that wear our fetuses in a pouch and hang by our tails has nothing to do with how lovely our town is. I would not want to live somewhere where people are my leaders. and eat things like possum stew or possum pie for meals.
Sincerely, His Royal Highness King Pontificus Pussom, IV of Possum Kingdom Lake

I actually have heard really good things about that place, and I'm being very serious here. My friend's parents have a lake house there and say it is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures look nice too, the name however, I could do without.

Maybe the Clampets built it, oh wait a minute they are pretty much all gone now, "the Beverly Hillbillies". I guess Joe and I will mark that one of our possible retirement places. Not into possum stew.
