I'm not going to read TFA. I have to go lie down just after reading the headline.
 
2021-09-25 10:00:09 AM  
....and this will be my last post in this thread in case someone decides to post pictures here but I'll just say that even though snakes make me freeze up and curl up like a little girl, in this particular instance just based on the headline I say Team Snake.

I mean, was the snake tasty? If it was tasty I'd be debating eating it too.

/not really. This is very much a Darwin award winner.

The report urged locals to refrain from swallowing snakes.

It went on: "You just should not try to swallow a snake or carry out any other experiments if you are not sure that it may end up in an unfavourable way for you."


Oh, now you say something! How was anyone supposed to know?

Hundreds of street performer acts to choose from and this guy picks snake swallower...

You could juggle jars of pickles and do just as well financially.
But only if you can get four jars going.
Three pickle jars is dull.

I dated a snake swallower for a while.  Highly recommend. I never bit her tho...

/That means deepthroating, right?
 
2021-09-25 10:43:29 AM  
Call me silly but I have no intention of putting venomous snakes in my mouth.

Video shows the farm worker, 55, performing a "trick" in which he traps the snake in his mouth in front of workmates in a watermelon field in Astrakhan, Russia

Is this place Russian Alabama?

C'mon, it would be one hell of an evolutionary fail if they just let something put them in its mouth like that.
 
2021-09-25 10:49:02 AM  
 He's probably better off.

Just a small labor dispute.  The snake wanted more rats, but the handler said no, so the viper went on strike.

/available for weddings, birthdays, and bar and  bat mitzvahs

I once told an alligator to bite my snatch, boy I'll never do THAT again.

Considering the "skills" of the drivers in Russia, I thought it was just a big Massachusetts.

Well, in your case, shallowthroating. But, yes.

Swallow the snake and charm the sword. I think.
 
2021-09-25 11:38:50 AM  
Snake-swallowing is said to be a popular trick among locals.

Why tho?
 
2021-09-25 11:38:58 AM  
I put the blame for this man's death squarely on the local/regional/federal government. That snake should have come equipped with a warning label!

So, free snake?

Please send it to:

Be sure to put a label that says "shake well before opening"

I mean, after the second try, you should really just stop and think, dude.

it starts with putting a snake down your throat, it ends with....well the other end     ( ! )

The tastiest part is the knee.

One. Put a snake in the throat! Two. The snake clamps on that throat! Three. Venom dissolves the throat. And that's the way ya do it! A snake in the throat!

He shall suck the poison of asps!
the viper's tongue shall slay him!
...and yes he shall fall among them that fall!

Snake bites man + snake dies = man poisonous
Snake bites man + man dies   = snake venomous

When I was a kid in the 60s, I lived in Yemen for four years. It was a country where venomous snakes slithered everywhere: Egyptian cobras, puff adders, sawscale vipers, and some other species.  There was a custom in the town I lived where venomous snakes that were killed were draped over the branches of one tree, and we referred to it as the 'snake tree'. It was believed that touching the tail tip of a venomous snake to your eyeball would make you immune to snakebite.  I never tried that, since my mother warned me that it would probably result in an infection that would make me blind.  But there was always a ready supply of dead snakes to choose from, should I decide to immunize myself.

All the other snakes say "sure must be sometime interesting about that tree.  All those snakes are in it."
Second snake says "yeah but it killed them to get up there.".

....On the other hand, we now know that you can only try to swallow the snake safely twice before reconsidering.
