SNAKES IN THE NEWS

A snake apparently attempted to vote in Australia, where this is illegal (unlike Florida, where anybody can vote). In sports news, according to this story, "Big Snake ran over the back of Matthew Hansen and started punching Farmanara." There was also a golf snake, which we frankly think there should be more of.

*first post AND I'M first too?* I love living in this time zone.

so if I want a free trip to oahu, I just need to hang out on the golf course in makena, of course wearing my halloween python costume?

*double checks all spelling, then goes back into corner to resume giggling over old c'bol posts and sorting lint collection.*

darn, guess I'm not a blurker any more.

The real issue is not whether snakes are voting, but whether or not they are voting for their same species. They do have ample opportunity.

"Big Snake started punching ...."
Snake punches do not hurt very much

Coming up next on the Sunday Morning Snake-a-thon, movie reviews from Tex the Python. Then political commentary from House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Golf snakes! What a stunningly brilliant idea!

Next up: Snakes debate the issues of the day in prime time.

Oh wait, we already saw the vice-presidential debate. Never mind.

The question I ask myself is, "Why is my ex trying to vote in Australia?".

He's Canadian.

** Zoodle shakes head in confused manner **

Dave, I don't see the problem here. We -- and the Australians -- already have snakes in office so why not let snakes vote?

Office Snakes wbagnfarb

I just got off the phone with the Crocodile Hunter, and he tells me the brown snake is the second most venomous snake in the world. This sounds like yet another terrorist attempt to influence elections in western countries!

Or am I just being paranoid?

So Voldemort is on the ballot in Australia, too?

"Toowoomba"? Is that a joke?

Toowoomba Voters wbagnfarb.

Isn't that what they used to sing in that song?

"Toowoomba wep, toowoomba wep,
Toowoomba wep, toowoomba wep,
Deeee, de-de-dee, de-de-de-de-dee,
The lion sleeps to-niiiiiiight!"

Is that any better, Bangi?

"Toowoomba, Toowoomba, I love ya' Toowoomba..."

Naah, maybe not.

If you like Toowoomba then you will love Wooloomooloo. BTW, what language was the hockey (I think)game report in. Addadjective perhaps?

How about Cooleemee? Or Moonlight? Wait a sec...

"Toowoomba wep, toowoomba wep,
Toowoomba wep, toowoomba wep,
Cooleemee, cooleemee
The lion sleeps [in] Moonlight!"

Oh, and

"LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLLLLANTYSILIOGOGOGOCH"

takes the cake for sure.

And apparently, that one's just the tip of the iceberg. (Thank you, Google!)
