Re: Poisonous Snake Hiding In Toilet Bites Woman
I'm as terrified of snakes as anyone. Just last week I had an encounter with a snake, don't ask what kind because I don't know. I was coming down my driveway and in the island part between our circular guest drive lay a giant [maybe not giant, but well over 4 feet long] snake. I stopped the Xterra and lowered the window to look at it a little better. It didn't move, it looked a little bulbous in parts the same way an intestine does. I, being a huge fan of Eric Cartman of South Park decided the best way to tell was to throw things at it. I had a few pennies in the console, so I began to chuck them at the still not moving snake. I hit it with one or two and no reaction. I decide it's dead, so I go park the truck and grab the shovel, dead or not I'm still not touching it. About this time my wife comes out and asks whats going on and I point out the snake to her. She's a little creeped, but I assure her its dead and I'm just about to dispose of the caracass. She says ok and tags over with me and and we stare for a moment. Then in true Cartman fashion I hit it with the shovel and say 'Thats a bad snake, bad!' Soon as my shovel connects with the head it springs to life, less than a foot from my legs. My wife takes off running for the house and I begin trying to cut the damn things head off, after a few steps back of course. I 'spear' at him with the shovel a few times as he begins to wriggle and coil up and hit it behind the neck splitting it open and eventually severing it's head.
Scary scary scary.
