"I have a friend that's sacred of snakes and I thought she'd get a kick out of it,"

She's a high priestess in the Church of Dick.

Why on earth would one eat a rest-stop snake?

/Insert lot-lizard joke here.

You are technically correct.

If the snakes got rid of the drugs and hookers, what will get rid of the snakes?
 
2014-07-19 12:27:02 PM
These signs have been around in FL for at least a decade. Not news. But after reading the article, I understand why the writer thought it was....

And just because they busted the hookers doesn't mean they're not still working rest stops. It is Florida, after all

Snake problems follow naturally from drug-addled hookers.

My pastor said snakes are the devil's helpers which is why you should shoot em when your out hunting if you see them or if you're just driving and one goes in front of your car you should just run them over because that one tricked Adam out of the garden and snakes can bite and they are dangerous and he said in some churches up in West Virginia they pass snakes around during services to show they have the Lord's blessing but my pastor said we don't need to do that to show The Lord loves us instead we can just give $10 to the new annex building fund and bring our families to next month's fish fry down at the county park and pay the contribution and then the devil's messengers won't bite us.

That's what my pastor said.

I ain't trying to make an issue of this, but doesn't the fact that dome girls need to auction off their vjoohoos at rest stops sort of detract from the point of their higher education?

UF has nice looking young ladies, but I would imagine anyone who believed a hooker is a coed in the first place is a bit stupid.

"I have a Caesarian  scar, no back teeth, a tat of a dolphin, and I am in pre law with a 4.0, 20 dollars extra and you can put it in my butt."

So the rest stop got measurably safer. Good news everyone.

Yep. Easy way to remember: If it bites you and you die, it's venomous. If you bite it and you die, it's poisonous.

However, in Canada, poisonous snakes will devour us whole.

Our bones will bleach in the sun.

You do, and when I was 36 I picked up a hot 25 year old at the gas station before I75 on University, we each reached for the last beer, and I said "Challenge, you take the beer, and I take you to Salty Dogs and get us both tanked."   Worked out for me for 18 months.

The only addendum may be that if you bite it and then die, it may also be a bear.

We have in the past had Cobras, Tiger snakes, both green and black Mambas pop up in Florida, not to mention the 6 or 7 native varieties of Venomous snakes, killer bees, Poisonous frogs and plants that can melt your flesh. So yeah maybe Americas answer to Australia. Personally I am really surprised we don't have those huge Japanese "Yak Killer" Hornets yet. Oh and i forgot Scorpions we have lots of scorpions, Lion fish, pythons, Fire coral and Rock fish (Also called Scorpion Fish) that will kill you.

So just keep in mind in Florida it's not just the people that hate you.

Guess thats one way to get hookers and dopers out of the neighborhood.
