Gorillas are thrilled.

Is this a euphemism for subby's penis?
 
2014-03-27 12:03:19 PM  
Great. Now all we need are winged tarantulas.
 
2014-03-27 12:06:16 PM  
So it's NOT a sexual technique?
 
2014-03-27 12:54:44 PM  
Excellent.
That should help reduce the piranhamoose population.

You know, I was fascinated by the article, then I read some of the others on the site, and it looks more like The Onion. Anyone else get that impression?

I thought the article was interesting, so I started googling the snake itself.  The only results that came up were the linked webpage and bible verses containing the supposed scientific name of the snake.  No scientific information available, not even a wikipedia page.  Then I came back and looked at the titles of the other articles on the site and thought the same as you.  Pretty sure the site's satire and the snake doesn't exist.

Yes.  It is appears to be a (not particularly funny) joke article.

Chinese winged snake not extinct....yeah that'll last about 2 seconds before they're killed and made into 'magic' powder that claims to cure impotence and erectile dysfunction.

"WorldNewsDailyReport.com"

seems legit.

Additionally, in the first paragraph it says the snake is believed to have gone extinct in the 17th century, while towards the end it claims it was often captured for sale in markets in the late 1900's.

Lame subby, very lame.
 
2014-03-27 01:12:07 PM  
Yeah, couldn't find much truth in that article. Starting with Darwin not going to China.

I got suspicious when the article mentioned that they were believed to have gone extinct in the 1700's, but later on says that most were killed in the late 1900's.

Yeah, I saw that and thought "Weekly World News".

Close enough.

Fark mods must be drunk, go home mods.
 
2014-03-27 01:34:38 PM  
no one? Im sure there is a Lee Ho Fuk somewhere working on a new recipe .
 
2014-03-27 01:49:15 PM  
Let me guess, they found them thriving in Australia?
 
2014-03-27 01:51:50 PM  
Still seems better than World Net Daily.
 
2014-03-27 01:52:06 PM  
worldnewsdailyreport ... yeah. right.
 
2014-03-27 02:25:10 PM  
The chinese have associated the blood of the Draconem serpentem with immortality and sexual power for centuries, bringing the species to the brink of extinction. Most were killed off in the late 1900′s, to be sold as an aphrodisiac

Thank you alternative medicine!

// anyone want to merge this with the other alternative medicine thread that's open?

I sure hope it's a joke article, since it says that they are known to (not said to in mythology) heal real fast like some sort of reptile Wolverine or something.
 
2014-03-27 02:50:27 PM  
That and Darwin only traveled on the Beagle, he never even touched Asia during the trip.

"The chinese have associated the blood of the Draconem serpentem with immortality and sexual power for centuries, bringing the species to the brink of extinction. Most were killed off in the late 1900′s, to be sold as an aphrodisiac, often in perfumes throughout Asia"

Hm, much like the pocket fox, which only existed for three weeks in the 16th century.

Note to humans: random animal parts aren't going to make your broken penis work. Try science instead.

Pick your preferred form of crazy.
Go ahead. You know you want to

LemSkroob: no one? Im sure there is a Lee Ho Fuk somewhere working on a new recipe .


Dude, even if you write that last name, first name style...you messed it up?

Fuk, Lee Ho. Even if I assume Ho Fuk is the last name, it's still Ho Fuk, Lee.

I mispelled the last name (Fook, not Fuk), but its a Warren Zevon reference.

Is this the same Chinese zoo that put a mane wig on a dog and called it a lion?

What's the deal with Chinese wangs that requires the powdering of every endangered species left in order to get them hard?  Wouldn't viagra be cheaper in comparison?

I too am disappointed.  I mean, the included picture doesn't even have consummate V's, any wingalings, or beefy arms.
