Ugly goes viral



Surely you've already heard about Heidi, the opossum in a German zoo who's become famous on the internet by being even uglier than a normal opossum. Maybe you read this article at the Christian Science Monitor, or Heidi's Wikipedia page, or this fan website that has sprung up to collect information on her. Or, you could go to her Facebook page or the website of the Leipzig Zoo, where Heidi resides. I can't think of much to add to that, but we couldn't let this phenomenon go without noting it here.

Thanks! I actually hadn't heard of her yet. She is Op-awesome!

Bad sign... skimming the article, I first thought this was about Heidi Montag, and I was quite surprised that this blog was breaking with tradition by criticizing a human. Glad it's not, just my exhaustion kicking in, but amused by the mistake! ;-)

Her picture looks so funny and crosseyed. Like she's saying 'Holy cow, Look at my nose, it's covered in whiskers!"

I actually think her crossed eyes make her pretty cute for an opossum. I can't believe her German facebook page has over 250,000 friends!

Wow, an "ugly" creature with more friends than most of us! I guess that goes to show that it really is what is inside that counts!
