"There will be no snakes at this Friday's Anti-Prom at the library," a clarifying Facebook post said. "There was a typo in a local paper that said we will have snakes. We will have snacks. Snacks is what we will have."

"Aniti" Prom. Maybe another type and it was supposed to be "Ante" Prom.

What do you bet the snake event outdraws the Anti-Prom?

I imagine people would have been disappointed if it had been the other way as well.

insert Samuel L. Jackson joke here

What a relief. My son, Johnny, has a python allergy. We were afraid he'd have to stay home.

Pflugerville! Many years ago, I had a friend who worked at a small gas station / convenience store there. At the time, checks were still accepted for purchases. (I said many years ago) It was her job to try to collect on bounced checks. One time, she had a bounced check from a teenager with last name Pfluger. She dialed the phone number listed on the check and an elderly woman listened as my friend explained that the check had bounced. She said that she would bring her granddaughter to the store.

A short time later, this woman was dragging teenage granddaughter into the store by her ear, peppering her the whole time: "Do you understand me? We are founding Pflugers! We do NOT bounce checks here! Now you apologize to this nice clerk and make good on what you owe!"

Ahh .. the good old days. But now they can't serve snakes at a party.

Many years ago, a snake escaped the National Zoo and ate a portion of the Code of Federal Regulations in a nearby government agency.

As a law librarian, I added "Watch out for the snake" to my instructions for using said tool.

Am I the only one who had to look up "anti prom event". It's also known as a morp which, as you probably can see, is prom spelled backwards. I don't know why.

People love snakes. And people love libraries.

This is actually only half true. I do love libraries but, as most of you know, I hate snakes. I don't think libraries should even carry books about snakes.

They're banned at the Anti-Porn event too.

Well then I'm not going.

Too bad - snakes are cuddly and tasty.

Six sad snakes ate six bad snacks. Six bad snacks made sad snakes sick.

But at the snake event, will the snakes have snacks?

In a related matter, next week’s snake fry has also been canceled.

We will have snake snacks
Snake snacks is what we will have
Fried, marinated and oven roasted snake snacks
Is what we will have

Snake snacks can start with a buzz
A buzz is how snake snacks start
Buzzing snake snacks become crispy
Crispy and quiet is how snake snacks become

*bravo* to Le Petomane

Does anyone here not want to go to the "anti-prom" with me, because I am not going. I'm anti-establishment, anti-social, anti-prom, and close to being anti-que.

As Arlo Guthrie said "We could start a movement!"

Teacher said there will be plenty of snakes at the morp.

In honor of the 'snakeless morp', the dance known as "The Mamba" must not be allowed to be performed. Also, ladies, "pythongs" are now banned, as is the "goodnight hiss".

What about stakes? I used to watch "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" so I know stakes can be really handy at almost any high school event.

As long as the snake folks hang out in 597.96, there can be more than one group in the library

My 2nd favorite group did a song about that town: "Pflugerville" by the Austin Lounge Lizards
