These old dudes, they get together and toss a snake from one person to another until someone gets bitten. They call it a Far Side.

Does this make Jon Stewart a "Derpotologist"?

Sad. This happened to my cousin. He died in Myanmar from a snake bite, coincidentally on 9/11/2001.  Somebody wrote a book about him, The Snake Charmer.

Snakebite deaths are extremely rare among the general population. I'm going to guess they are much less rare among people who regularly handle snakes.

Alcohol related health problems probably. I've known some herpetologists.

I'd say is much more common (percentage wise, handlers vs non-handlers). Similar to gun owners and gun deaths.

I was going to say Herpes.  But that joke was taken, and I dutifully marked it funny..
What about "eaten by a snake?"

As a boy, Martin found a population of timber rattlers in the Bull Run Mountains that was previously unknown, and convinced a herpetologist to come out and verify the find.

That sounds familiar. I believe I read a book by him that was quite informative but don't recall the name. Googling his name apparently brings up a separate author so I might have to dig out my old Nook and charge it up or it'll eat at me all afternoon. Anyone care to beat me to it?

The uncle Monty speech to the kids in the middle of the movie /book about why they should and are going immediately to Peru always makes me cry. I get that literally the point of the series is that "unfortunate" events happen but i loved that character so so much.

Two buddies are out hiking in the woods. One goes to take a piss, and gets bit in the dick by a rattlesnake
His buddy calls 911 to ask what to do

911 tells him he needs to suck the venom out of the snakebite on his friend's dick

The snakebite guy yells out, what did they say!?!?

His friend responds, they said you're gonna die.
