BREAKING SNAKE REPORT FROM THE EVERGLADES

A group of guys handle a problem:

Key Excerpt: The four responders then discussed their options. Snow reported that there had been several published articles about the successful use of tasers to loosen the tight grip of constricting snakes, so that was tried. Unfortunately, it resulted in the python contracting and excreting bodily fluids all over the responders. They then decided to disassemble parts of the Explorer’s undercarriage in order to get to the python’s head, which was then covered with duct tape.

IN OTHER SNAKE-RELATED NEWS

Snakes see heat with their noses and hear with their tongues -- now researchers find that they hear with their jaws.

We don't want to know what they do with their genitals.

OOSIK UPDATE

From funniegrrl: "During the credits of Antiques Roadshow tonight, they showed a couple of teenagers (brother and sister I think) who had an oosik which had carving on it.  They described an oosik as a "petrified whale bone."  hmmm.  They also said it had been appraised at $1200."

Makes a person wonder what Walter is worth. Not that Walter is for sale. Walter is way too cool to sell.
