"It's sort of an educational exhibit, but we don't advertise it that way because we want people to come and see us," said Tom Weidner, a Des Moines herpetologist.

Sucks to study reptiles and be called a herpetologist.

I predict penis jokes. Ah, fark it, I'll make the first one...

I routinely smuggle my cobra through airports- IN MY PANTS!

'Cause my dick is sooo huge! Get it, huh, do you get it?

Damn you kitschnsync!

"Oh, THATS where i left my penis!"
2003-08-06 01:05:39 PM
Soooo what you're saying is that you have a very large penis, so large that you can euphamistically refer to it as serpentine. Wow. I've no doubt that you've experienced much sex with many woman due to your generous gential endowment.

Kudos to you Sir!

Man, those terrorists really ARE running out of money and ideas.
2003-08-06 03:47:05 PM
Holy Crap!!!
2003-08-06 03:47:43 PM
Why did they confiscate it? Did it swallow a boxcutter?
2003-08-06 03:49:14 PM
Des Moines.

I don't know it's in Indiana or something.

Hey kitschnsync, what happens when it gets confiscated?
2003-08-06 03:50:07 PM
16 foot cobra? I had no idea they could get so large! I thought it was just pythons and anacondas that got that big.

A snake big enough to swallow humans AND with deadly poison in its fangs - nasty! I'm not afraid of snakes in general like some people, but I'd keep my distance in this case.

Good, I'm glad Sylvester Stallone was arrested. Had no business being in Des Moines anyways.
2003-08-06 03:50:33 PM
the next time you're carrying a cobra through and airport and they ask you what it is, just say :

"why yes, sir, that is a 16-foot-long, male, malaysian ophiophagus hannah. and a damn nice specimin if i do say so myself"
2003-08-06 03:51:34 PM
Man, I knew King Cobra came in 40 ounce bottles, but a 16 foot King Cobra? Dayammmm

/malt-liquor humor. Try King Cobra if you never have - its got a nasty ass bite to it (their pun, not mine).

16 foot cobra? I had no idea they could get so large!

the largest king on record was just over 18 feet.
the spread between the fangs was about 5 inches.

2003-08-06 04:00:33 PM
So the snake stayed in its crate until morning.

"No, we were not going to take it out," Halverson added.

Wow, I guess airport security is getting smarter!

2003-08-06 04:00:44 PM

"It's sort of an educational exhibit, but we don't advertise it that way because we want people to come and see us"

Iowans are so forthright. I love it.
