yknow, like the other guy who got bit by a cobra, and chopped off his was on Fark earlier today...

Guess you had to be there.

Did he chop off his hand too?

That's the first thing I wondered, too.

This story made me smile. The fact that his son was bitten as well made me laugh. Hard.

Hopefully this farktard is getting a huge bill from the rescuers. I certainly wouldn't want my taxes to pay for saving these tards.

Will he now undergo a startling metamorphosis and become the latest "superhero" Snakeman????

Hmm.. shame this isn't a Reuters article.

Man gets bitten by cobra and dies. Son also killed. Three year old toddler next door also killed. Reuters category: Oddly Enough

Not that I hate Reutrs and their pathetic, insultingly disgusting categorization or anything. Jerks.

What kind of a knobhead wants a cobra for a pet anyway? I prefer a pet that can't kill me with a single bite. Any pet of mine would have to bring his A-game to take my ass down.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you are going to have exotic pets, don't be surprised when they fark you up.

<-crazy_beautiful looks a little like a cobra. Wouldn't mind some of that venom.

Keeping a cobra as a pet is like keeping a tiger as a pet. You know it'll turn against you, you just don't know when.

Apprently, this guy's favorite hobby used to be dumpster diving into medical waste. At 57 it gets a little tough to hop into those 6 footers and medical centers have been more careful in their sharps disposal so having a venomous cobra is the next best thing.

Oh, in my book, if you can't cuddle it, it's not a pet.

Dear Cobra Boys,

Here's a little song to lift your venom-filled spirits:

Oh Whacking Day
Oh Whacking Day
Our hallowed snake skull-cracking day.
We'll break their backs
Gouge out their eyes,
Their evil hearts we'll pulverize.
Oh Whacking Day
Oh Whacking Day
May God bestow His grace on thee.

Bad snake!
2003-07-17 08:55:41 AM  
and this is why I'll never make the jump to "hots." Give me a nice python anyday...

Bad enough that the dude keeps cobras, but what I found even more asshat was the fact that the story says he's got a permit to keep them. What farked up government agency gives out cobra permits???

I hope the cobra takes the whole family out and then finds its way to the permit office and takes them out too.
2003-07-17 09:41:22 AM  
Dumbass, dumbass. I just cant say it to many times to this guy, dumbass.

Crikey! She's a beauty!

WTF? Why the hell does this have a Florida tag? Because it happened in Florida? Fine, ok, where are the other 49 tags then?

Why not a DUMBASS tag.

At least the moron who submitted this story didn't use the IRONIC tag.

permits to keep venomous snakes are typically issed to breeders and zoos.

if florida, you need 1000 hours of supervised hot experience in order to get one.

most real breeders keep their own anti-venom on hand.

that, along with two bites in such a short period of time clearly marks this pair as amateurs.
2003-07-17 06:56:11 PM  

Sorry, night terrors, ma'am.
