Tell me when you get to Maine levels of poisonous snakes.

I'm liking the new Fark mobile preview feature. Now I don't have to click to know WTF subbies are talking about.

I have a plan so cunning you could dress it up as a fox.

I think the phrase rhymes with "Clucking Bell!".

On releasing the animals from the ark, Noah bid them to go forth and multiply. Suddenly two little snakes spoke up, "But we can't multiply - we are adders." Thereupon Noah constructed a table from rough-hewn lumber and said, "Here is a log table. Now you adders can multiply."

Adders were just a myth made up by parents to keep their kids from straying too far in the countryside, they never existed in the first place. My parents used to use this line all the time. They also used to tell me there were hidden wells I might fall down if I went down certain paths.

Funny timing - I just encountered a python at my place.

So, I'm just turning off various valves after pumping some water to the header tank, and whoosh, there a sudden movement near the main valve (surrounded by green ferns, 'cos the valve leaks a bit and it's nice and damp there, but anyway....). It's a carpet python, but unusually sluggish. It's only just turned autumn here, so not cold at all. WTF?

Then it turns around and I can see its belly - swollen and fat. This little specimen has just eaten, and wants to find somewhere to digest its meal over the next few days. How could I say no?

So I leave mister or ms python alone and eventually it slithers off to find somewhere to digest the rat it's just eaten.

I love pythons. You can stand and watch them without worrying about whether the ambulance with anti-venene will get to you in time.

Unlike those nasty aggressive eastern brown snakes. Don't bother running, they're faster than you.

Perhaps they decided to emulate the snakes of Ireland, who all swam the Atlantic to New York City, and joined the police force.

Snakes will also need to learn how to swim across the Channel.

Stupid trivia.  They were originally called "nadders", but "a nadder" eventually became "an adder".

Think this might be my first interaction with a mod account when they're not telling me to knock that shiat off ;D

You could bump TFA as a repeat with "Snexit" as a headline if you want, I wouldn't mind not getting credit for it.

I already have it marked to be a FarkStaff Pick in the NotNewsletter. This headline is awesome, too, so we wouldn't change it anyway.

Thanks :D

Wasn't meaning to bump this thread with a different headline, but to put up a new thread with a repeat tag.

Go forth and multiply. Except you snakes. You're adders.
