" When we first introduced the session, a lot of people were afraid..."

It must have been the rattling.

Keep your hands off my asp!

"Why the additional $149?"

"The acupuncture you received wasn't included."

I'd take the python pounding option.

This will never become a successful industry in Australia.

I suppose with a snake massage, any ending is a happy ending.

I can personally testify that this therapy will be a life changing experience. Back in the early 1960's my dad had a beryl mine in Phantom Canyon, Colorado. I was working to help him on the high school summer break. Dad sent me to do some chores at the mine and to camp there for the night and he would be up the next morning.

It was a warm summer night so I just pitched a bedroll like the old timers used to and went to sleep under the stars. At the crack of dawn I was awakened by something moving next to me. When I saw the triangular rattlesnake head raise up to look me in the face, all sorts of normally unused muscles tensed up. Now, wide awake, I noticed this was quite a large diamondback rattler that had snuggled up against me to get warm. The increased heartbeat, sweating and efforts to control panic undoubtedly were healthy moves on my part.
After a couple of lifetimes, the sun came out and the snake simply slithered off. It never coiled up or hissed, it just laid there. However the health benefits were great. It felt so good to be alive and I never again slept on the ground. And ,as that snake experience taught me, it can be bad for your health.

Sends Le Petomane a freshly sharpened assist-open tactical knife to be used for western setting amputation. Don't worry. I included a band aid.

Le Petomane di I ever tell you about the time a copperhead struck my Dad's pantleg with is leg in it?

Well it was an especially hot summer day when the aliens were heeding the warnings for the most part about the dangers of heat heat stroke and staying hydrated. But a couple of two-headed ones took out and about looking for people venturing in the woods squirrel hunting to take captive. Then this copperhead the size of six rattlers came snarling it's way up the trail...

I had my snake massaged once. I liked it, but it was pretty expensive.

I can still remember when "snake massages" were known as "happy endings".

Are you having a snake massage or are you just happy to see me?
