(Not exactly a bizarre zoological curiosity, but maybe it could fall in the exotic pet category? Either way, the world deserves to know.)

Robert Bashwell, a 44-year old homeless man in West Palm Beach, Florida, fell asleep in a dumpster to escape the rain, but woke up to find himself in the back of a garbage truck being crushed by the truck’s trash compressor. In order to shield the blows of the compacting garbage, Bashwell claims he used the corpse of a dead opossum.

Jaws of life…

“I screamed one last breath,” Bashwell said, but a trash collector discovered him before it was too late.

Bashwell suffered broken legs and ribs in the incident. We all should be so lucky to find a dead opossum in our time of need.

    Oooh, I really like both of those. Which would you be more comfortable in? I know that you appreciate wearing tights and those types of tops, nevertheless the maxi would be incredibly summery!
