PsyLord: FrancoFile: Headline is not the same as article: one of the primary tenets of Fark.

So we have a Farker working at ABCNews. That clears it up. :/

I tried finding the story elsewhere to clear up whether it was a road trip or plane trip. None of the other sites indicated either mode of transportation.


It's highly unlikely that a high school sports team would fly from the DC area to South Carolina. You can drive that trip in 6-8 hours, depending on where you're going.

Not to mention that this is the rowing team - are they gonna pay air freight for their shells?

"Hmm, I'm sorry, Budd. That was rude of me, wasn't it? Budd, I'd like to introduce my friend, the black mamba. Black mamba, this is Budd"

My tagline and the CNN article I linked yesterday about this story were better.

She? I think Larp, Barbarian Lord of the Hill People would have a bone to pick with you over that.

He was gonna end up in the news anyway. If he wasn't bit by the snake, he'd inevitably bang one of his students and be in the news next week instead.

Blargosaurus Why do you have a Coral Snake draped over your nose?

Ohhhh, a Timber Rattlesnake.

Ran across one of those in Central Pennsylvania once - maybe 6-8' long. Silly snake took its sweet time gettin' across the trail, too.

(Not that we were gonna poke it or otherwise hurry it along...)

architectastic: Blargosaurus Why do you have a Coral Snake draped over your nose?

Not a coral snake; that's a milk snake... The bands are the telltale sign, a coral snake's bands, though the same color, are evenly sized, unlike the one pictured above.

"Well I had just made it through the cane break,
And I got one foot in the mud,
I can hear the hounds a-bayin'
But the snake around my ankle's
Tellin' me my running days are done."

weemonkey: megalynn44: Why did they have to kill it? Couldn't they have called a wildlife rangler? It was contained in the suitcase. No rush to get it out.

Because they were idiots.

And that image in the article looks like a Green Tree Python. I could be wrong, due to the caffeine that is not in my blood stream yet.


It looks more like an Emerald Tree Boa....they have the white markings down the back of the snake. All the green tree pythons I have have blue makings down their back, but I could be wrong.

This happened in the UK right? So it was clearly a metric foot. I think that is about 2 US feet, right?

I was going to come on and just post

Tastes of Chicken!

But under a foot?

That's not a snake, that's bait

Damnit. You magnificent bastard!

I have a great-uncle in Minnesota that used to tie hooks around Garter Snakes and cast them out alive. The snake would swim back to shore unharmed. Until the Muskie hit.

He told me that was how he caught most of his big Muskie, and Pike as well.

Meh. I submitted this story with essentially that title, and it was rejected. Yes, I'm pouting.
