Screw the hunting dog - always take a fresh sheep and a sharp knife when out looking for rattlers!

All you have to do to survive the snake bite is drink this glass of snake's blood.

what is this? Fear Factor hospital?

First?

Close Ed, you were only 4 posts off . . .

"Australian sheep...are free of diseases like scrapie and foot-and-mouth."

Unfortunately, they are full of snake venom.

The more pressing headline is to the right: "Talks underway over Byron chook stink."

scra·pie, n.
A usually fatal disease of sheep and goats, marked by chronic itching, loss of muscular coordination, and progressive degeneration of the central nervous system.

[From scrape(from the scraping of itching parts of the skin against objects).]

This will be in Babe 3: The Sheep Bite Back.

I see they spell "antivenin" differently in Australia ... just sayin' ...

Double-dang!!

*sheepishly decides not to comment on this thread*

They actually used the term fortnight. I mean, who talks like that anymore?

aunt nancy - now we know where CSIs wind up after they're fired.

"Greg, you've gotten so sloppy with you're DNA that you've been named a suspect in the last five murders."

"Sorry, Gil, I was only guilty of the first one."

"So we're sending you to Vienna. Maybe you'll be able to scrape your career back together from where it's dropped: the gutter."

"Aren't you worried I'll contaminate the DNA there, too."

"Not really."

Why do I have a feeling this is going to be part of a future 24 plot?

Jack: Tony, I've been bitten by a rattlesnake!

Tony: What are we going to do, Jack? We're in the middle of nowhere...all we have is Bo Peep here, and she doesn't know anything about snake bites.

Jack: (looking around) Quick, get me that sheep!

aarggh! "your" not "you're"

Punky, there are sheep around but you say screw the dog?

I do think this method is an improvement over having people line up for "mini" bites by Rattlesnakes in order to build up a tolerance over time. That was resulting in an awful lot of death.

Of course, the superhero "RattlerMan" was created, so it wasn't a total loss.

Wow. Finally, vampirism is paying off. Now if only we could do something about that sunlight...

Aunt Nancy,
have to wonder what these "officials"
do with the rest of their time!

Schadeboy: They do in 'stralia.

There's sheep in the wainscotting. He's got a gun.

Sorry. My (Monty) Python is showing.

But son, it's only Tuesday!

(Please, somebody be out there who has seen Rejected.)

sheeps blood? sheep's blood? i'll have rams bladder. my python is ALWAYS showing. anybody see Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe??? very pythonic indeed.

the bartender wouldn't flinch, since jagermeister used to be made with deer's blood in it.

lemme see if i got this...

they inject the sheep downunder [australia & new zealand - get your mind outta the gutter], then they ship the serum to the uk, then *they* ship the antivenin to some poor snakebit cowboy in the middle of arizona. where is herbert stahnke when we need him?

The Blood Spectator has several articles on Sheep,Cow,and Buffalo Blood. As many know,unlike the Wine Spectator,you seldom hear disputes over a good white,or a bad red or hearty red,most of the time the blood is at best "murky".
Just the other day,the roving reporter,Mr.Lips called in from his local bloodbar in Australia where he asked for an amusing Cow Chaser.He was served,and spit out a sheep blood mix,and told the proprietor he would no longer frequent such a clip joint.

Maybe those "officials" should've majored in biochemistry and brewing science.

Doctor "I have a hunch that south australian sheeps blood will help combat american rattlesnake venom!"

Other Doctor " Well kick my butt and call me a kangaroo where di you get that idea?"
