Georgina Spelvin, a psychic who also answers to alter-ego ME Pearl, believes that all life, including ‘lowly life forms,’ should be well-treated. Even the garbage-loving possum. And to prove it, she’s got a Youtube page dedicated to possum massage techniques. As well as videos showing you how to use your possum to detect aliens, how to channel your possum’s past lives, and more. It’s everything a possum-lover could possibly need.
You might be wondering, is she for real? Well…no. In reality, “Georgina Spelvin” and her psychic persona ME Pearl are both played by actress Anna Dresden, who says the videos are meant to be funny.
But the possum-massaging itself is very much real. Whether you’re in the mood for a laugh, or you know a certain marsupial with a messed up back from a lifetime of dumpster-diving, you can check it out here:

“My Dad’s 85th birthday. Took a picture outside the restaurant which was in a very artsy part of town. Wasn’t until I posted it on Facebook that a friend pointed out that the writing on the wall behind us was hilarious. Of course it originally said glass blowing.”

“The original photo has been a favorite of family and friends since it was our family Christmas card 1999. Different city, different home, but we think we got pretty close.”
