FTFA: Ericcson said the snake was his pet for about 17 years. "I've had that snake since he was so small he could just wrap around your wrist," he said. "Me and my wife can't have kids, so the animals are our kids."

Ericcson went on to say they had adopted five children, but all of them died shortly before he shot them, "To get the gas out."

Yeah, yeah.

You know why the millions of responsible gun owners like me never make the news?  Because we never do anything newsworthy with our firearms.

Unless the Seattle Times thinks it's so damn interesting I went to the range last weekend, and then went to a sushi place for lunch.

Assume he did kill the snake. How is this a crime? As far as I know, it's legal for me to shoot my dog if I choose to do so, and dogs are much higher animals than snakes.

Dale Earnhardt isn't truly gone. Atleast not till the last of his collectibles are destroyed by a grieving redneck. Let the gas out Dale, let the gas out.

"Cruelty" depends on where you shoot your dog or snake.  A clean, quick head shot may be OK, but that's not how you let the gas out.

What do you bet he cries over his destroyed Earnhardt collection, like he couldn't for his snake?
 
2013-01-03 08:41:34 PM  
I can see his reasoning, you unexpectedly lose something you love then you destroy something you love then you have the police remind you that you lost something you loved.  It's all about something.
 
2013-01-03 08:56:25 PM  
The real question is how many Viking funerals had he given his pets where they exploded in giant fireballs because he hadn't yet learned to machine gun the corpses first to evacuate said gas?

Or more to the point, why is he letting them decompose before said immolation?
 
2013-01-03 08:59:07 PM  
I'm still waiting to hear what the downside is. Everytime someone destroys an Earnhardt shrine, an angel gets its wings.
 
2013-01-03 09:02:12 PM  
He claims he was letting the gas out before burning it ... so he must have let it decompose.

You know, I'm in awe of a lot of farkers' abilities to write witty, hilarious headlines. But sometimes, the direct quote is just freakin' perfect.

I think I need to go out on the back porch and yell "YE-HAAAW!" real loud now. Maybe I'll get the neighborhood dogs to howl.

I wish to speak to you now. Where is the Eye of the Serpent? Rexor says that you gave to a girl, probably for a mere night's pleasure, hmm? What a loss. People have no grasp of what they do. You broke into my house, stole my property, murdered my servants, and my PETS! And that is what grieves me the most! You killed my snake. Thorgrim is beside himself with grief! He raised that snake from the time it was born.

Rufus Lee King: Surool: Why is there still this creepy cult surrounding a race car driver who has been dead for over a decade?

I recall a photograph in our local (Charleston, SC) newspaper around that time which showed a gathering of Earnhardt fans standing around crying. Grown men, I'm talking about. Weird, even for around here.


There's a canopied truck around the Lynnwood/Everett area of Washington State that has the entire back glass hatch covered with custom vinyl lettering. Large #3s, a race car, NASCAR logos, checkered flags, his birth/death dates and a huge "In Loving Memory Dale Earnhardt #3". There's hundreds of dollars of custom vinyl on the guy's back window. Yes, "Loving Memory".
I wonder if that truck is still running around in the area.

Honestly, if you've got a shrine to a man whose only marketable skill is making a car turn left, you got issues. And aspirations to become barely adequate at something most folks can do flawlessly if they aren't impaired.
