Maybe we should invite these guys to visit Washington.

They defang the snakes? Isn't that cheating???

"Most snake charmers use crude methods to de-fang the captured snakes. This reduces a snake's natural life span and makes them less resistant to diseases. This is illegal. We have to follow the law."

They wouldn't fit in. Apparently, they follow the law.

You should see what they do to lawyers... the only creatures lower than snakes!

That's what I was thinking, Lab.

A real snake charmer wouldn't defang their snakes. Light weight candy asses.

And if the snake have no fangs, where's the threat in releasing them in general assembly?

Just step over 'em.

I bet the snakes don't even get a cut of the profits. Light weight cheap candy asses.

"OMG! There's a snake gumming my leg! Get it off me! GET IT OFF ME!!!!"


Punky, I'd like order a baker's dozen light weight cheap candy asses for immediate delivery.

"What are you supposed to be?"
"I'm a slug charmer."
"They don't seem to respond to your kazoo much."
"Just wait."
"This is boring."
"You know, I didn't defang them like those light weight candy asses over there."
"They don't even have fangs."
"Do too. Ooooh. That one moved, d'ya see it?"
"You just kicked the jar."
"Still. It moved."

Cbol. Your wish is my command. But they'll be shipping out of DC, so give it a day or so.

"There are an estimated 20,000 odd snake charmers in the state with 500 families living at Padmakesharipur alone."

The story makes no mention of the number of normal snake charmers in Padmakesharipur, or elsewhere.

That's not funny, C-bol. My family went camping in Yellowstone when I was a kid and my sister was nearly killed by a pack of wild slugs. Try to be more sensitive, okay?

Did I mention that we had been camping for a long time? And that my sister can spend hours, and even days, being really, really still?

Worst. Headline. EVAR!

Please accept my sincerest apologies, Lab. Sometimes I just don't know what comes over me, but it probably has to do with my drunkenness, not that drunkenness is an excuse for doing whatever the hell you want, wait, yes it is.

Anyway, sorry, and, oh, can I get your sister's number?

Sure, C-bol. I'll send it to you via snail mail.

So, let me get this right. Returning defanged snakes to the wild is humane??? I'm sure they live a LONG life not being able to eat!

And the article only mentions the odd ones, what about the even ones? What's their story? Ah, journalist!

Thanks Lab!

Kibby, I'm sure they teach them Karate before they release them. And the even ones become belts, according to the prophecy.

Snake? check
Gerbil? check
Innuendo? check

Hey! What the hell you trying to do with that Gerbil?

I said in you end oh?

Alright, but pass the cheetos.

Or maybe, like on Far Side, they become gum slingers!

*oooh, BAD, even for me*

All Emotional Support Snakes are to be de-fanged or they're not allowed out of the overhead compartment.

"Has your Emotional Support Snake been defanged?"
"Uh, lady, that's not a snake."

HEY! Formulaic humor that relies on sexual connotations can be funny too...

Can be funny?
Can be funny?
Nay, must be funny.

Those snakes in Washington D.C. would be competing with the "rabbits" for the eggs during the Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Maybe, they could learn to play "golf."

great discussion
