The most famous cross-eyed opossum in the world and former Hot Slut, Heidi, has closed her googly sticker eyes for the last time and floated off to the great big knocked over trash can in the sky at the way-too-young age of three and a half. The sores on my heart have not yet healed over Knut tragically earning a place in Oscar’s In Memoriam montage (they better not forget) and now Heidi?! QUICK. Form two prayer circles around Frankenlouie!
The director of Germany’s Leipzig Zoo delivered the sad news to Spiegel this morning. The zoo said that cross-eyed Heidi suffered from arthritis and other disorders brought on by the olds. (Mammal lesson: Possums usually don’t live past the age of 4.) They didn’t want Heidi to suffer anymore so they put her to sleep.
