THE AFTERLIFE — There is no way to prepare for what you’re about to read and see next.

There’s no way to know if this is deep dedication to an extremely funny comedic bit, or if the woman you’re about to see believes what she is saying (no judgement either way.)

The only thing we can be sure of at this moment is that Georgette Spelvin, also lovingly known as "Possum Lady" by her cult following, is about to change your life forever. For better or worse — who can tell?

Georgette has created a brand that revolved around one thing — a psychic and now deceased squirrel named ME Pearl or Pearl de Wisdom or ME PearlA. It’s best to hear it in ME’s own words:

"I AM A DEAD SQUIRREL WHO KNOWS EVERYTHING and pines to share it with YOU. I lived for 10 years as a non-releasable in So. Cal, and gnawed my way through most of a Merriam-Webster’s English dictionary and around the edges of a Larousse Spanish/French. Plus, I absorbed vast amounts of information through my 7 senses, tuned beyond anything you can yet imagine. And the rest I make up.

"In short, in matters vegetable, animal and mineral, I am the very model of a modern psychic squirrel."

Just that small piece of the written introduction on MEPearl.com gives you taste of what you’re getting yourself into right now, yet it’s still unclear what that taste actually is.

Georgette has a building collection of videos to watch on YouTube, and they usually include a possum named Porgus, who is often dressed in a jaunty outfit. Each video is as spellbinding as the next, but today, you’ll see a video from a couple months ago because it’s the shortest.

In the video, Pogus is dressed as a lumberjack. He chomps on a plate of goodies the entire time while Georgette promotes the sale of a calendar and "listens" to Pearl dispense nuggets of wisdom. Georgette even suffers a cheeky nip on the nape of her neck, courtesy of ME.

There’s nothing else to say except "I’m sorry" or "you’re welcome" or both.
