Ask Bobby #7: Skunks


Written by Joe DiPersio (He/Him) and illustrated by Bianca Oppedisano (She/Her) / Mass Media Staff

Q: Why do skunks look at you like that?

A: In the town where I was born, skunks got a real bad rap. I mean, the townspeople were just slaughtering them left and right. I was expected to do the same, but as I got older I realized that they actually made pretty good pets if you remove the stink sack. Anyways, I trained and befriended a skunk named Scentless and convinced my town that skunks were all right. To this day the skunks still respect me.
