Hill Resident

Looks like these fellows caught someone from the Hill while he was in his natural form.

Hey, Worried, you'll be sued shortly via a class action brought by members of the snake community. The damages sought will be huge.

No self-respecting snake would want to be associated with The Great Serpent or Dickie Tricky, his brain!

Cheers!

It is flat-out strange that something--that anything--is happening at all. There was nothing then a Big Bang, then here we all are. This is extremely weird.

Daniel: My abject apologies to the snake! What was I thinking?? What compensation may I offer to appease the offended snake community?

FWY and Enigma: I am glad that U.S. native snakes do not grow so large- only imported foreign snakes as "pets". I do not know where this snake was caught. When Husband #3 was working in Indonesia he told of a monster snake that exceeded world records being caught on one of the Islands. Unfortunately, the native humans that dispatched the snake did not register it. They happily skinned it for the boot and belt lucrative snakeskin trade, income being more important to them than records.

John: The Big Bang theory and all that transpired afterward is indeed a strange and wonderful odyssey.

good lord!!!! that's going to give me nightmares for a week at least. i have a phobia about snakes. and that is a bigun!

Betmo: Sorry about the nightmares. Bad dreams were not my intention. I accept most snakes and spiders although I am very wary of poisonous ones. Oddly enough, there are certain spiders that give me the shivering willies and those aren't particularly dangerous. Usually I am tolerant of most creatures but when I encounter those particular spiders, it is WAR!

Now that is what I call a snake. I cannot imagine walking through a wooded area and coming across this. Well one thing for sure, I know my days would be numbered.

I come for a little visit and am greeted with my worst nightmare. I'll get over it, eventually.;)

Let's Talk: Such an encounter would dictate the urgent admonition: "Feet, don't fail me now!"

fjb: Apologies again. I did not mean to trigger anyone's nightmares. I'm sorry.

You ask about compensation, Worried. What about sending the litigant serpents some snake oil?

Cheers!

WA: Hmmm! Literal snake oil or figurative snake oil? Literal might open a whole new can of worms!
