This Opossum That Broke Into A Florida Liquor Store And Drank Bourbon Is My Spirit Animal

It’s the holidays which means increased levels of alcoholism is an acceptable vice around this time of year. Even for opossums. Problem is that opossums don’t have credit cards or even cash, so they have to steal their liquor. One weaselly pest broke into a liquor store in Florida (because of course) and drank bourbon. I have finally found my one true spirit animal.

We take you to Fort Walton Beach, Florida, where an opossum was able to sneak into Cash’s Liquor Store and had its very own holiday party during the Thanksgiving break. When employees returned to the store, they found a discombobulated opossum laying on the ground next to an open bottle of bourbon. The opossum was not playing possum because the critter was definitely drunk. The worker said the female opossum was salivating and appeared to be pale and disoriented when she dropped it off at the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge. Who among us hasn’t been in this condition after indulging in a wee too much alcohol? The liquor store owner believes that the opossum came through the rafters and knocked the bottle of liquor off the shelf. “When she got down to the floor she drank the whole damn bottle!” he said. “But it just goes to show that even animals are impressed with Cash’s.”
