Q: Are they really from North America?
A: Originally, but they have embraced the idea of being part of the global economy.
Q: Are they marsupials?

Q: I like this cartoon. It makes me feel less alone. Who can I thank?
A: The Opossums welcome you, and will see you at the convention next Spring. The Opossums are your colleagues. But don't get too close. Opossums have mouths brimming with razor sharp teeth.
The toon was created by illustrator & graphic designer Eric MacDicken and written with long-time creative collaborator, writer and editor Mark Stencel. And they'd like to thank their supportive and talented friends!
Q: Aren't you spelling "Oppossums" wrong?
A: Seriously? Two P's? Didn't even place in the school Spelling Bee, didja?
Q: Do opossums make good pets?
A: Don't all mammals? But truthfully, we at OOHQ believe that all living things should be allowed to live free, in their own natural environments... office buildings, cubicles, conference rooms, what-have-you.
Q: Why do Office Opossums like coffee so much?
A: Silly child. You'll understand when you are older and you have sold your dreams down the river for a 70-hour work week job with the salary equivalent of 30 hours and no chance of parole.... um, we mean "advancement."
