Things are hopping in Palmyra!

You just know it’s gonna be a great day when there are police reports of a kangaroo sighting in Palmyra.  The Morning Posse jumped to action to help trying to lure out the kangaroo by playing Keith Urban songs every hour.  That effort was unfortunately unsuccessful.  But, that didn’t deter us from offering many tips in the event that someone did encounter the marsupial.

First, we tried to define exactly what a kangaroo is thanks to our informative friends at Wikipedia:

A kangaroo (/ˌkæŋɡəˈr/) is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae (macropods, meaning ‘large foot’). In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus, red kangaroo, antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo and western grey kangaroo.[1] Kangaroos are endemic to the country of Australia. The smaller macropods are found in Australia and New Guinea.

No mention of Palmyra….dang.  Then we proceeded to let the kind KICK-FM listeners know exactly where kangaroos like to be scratched since we knew that they (like us) would like to try.

Listener Timothy noted on Facebook:

their tiny front arms remind me of a T-rex.

Thank you for that, Timothy. At least we won’t confuse the kangaroo appearance with the normal dinosaur sightings around Palmyra.

One word of warning if your path does happen to cross that of the wild kangaroo in Palmyra today.  These things can punch.  And I mean REALLY punch!

Listener Sandy really summed it up in her Facebook post:

Kangaroo? In Palmyra? Are we sure? Musta been one hell of a party…lol
