|Well, until it starts getting all over me...|
|Wow, a selfie that turned out right the first time! Didn't even have to airbrush out any buggers..|
|Snowman with pine dredlocks|
|He turned to pee on the drift and ran his face into it...|
|Hey! D'ya mind?|
Sorry, but the snow-nose is too cute.
|Y'know, this stuff's a bit deep...|
I owe an apology to one of my partners-in-crime, who sent me something fit for Martin World News, and I forgot it because I had it stored in e-mails. Without further ado...
ITEM: A friend sent me two news stories the other day. The one didn't seem like all that big a deal, so I deleted and moved on. But then I saw the second one, and realized the depths of her genius.
OCALA - A 42-year-old woman was bitten by a rattlesnake Tuesday while shopping for plants at the Lowe's store on East Silver Springs Boulevard.
The customer was moving some plants around in the garden center at the home improvement store when she noticed a stinging feeling in her leg, according to a spokesman for Emergency Medical Services Alliance.
She looked down and saw the snake. The woman, whose name was not released, was taken by ambulance to Munroe Regional Medical Center, where she was given antivenin. She was listed in stable condition Tuesday night.
EMSA spokesman Randy Robinson said the snake, a dusky pygmy rattlesnake, is an aggressive pit viper. Its bite is rarely fatal.
"It can be extremely painful," Robinson said.
Employees killed the 1-foot-long rattler with a yard tool.
Like I said, certainly unusual, but outside the tragic end of the attacker, not really Martin World News stuff... until you read the SECOND story...
NEWSER) – A shopper opening a cabinet at a Lowe's store (that's right, a SECOND Lowe's store) got an unpleasant surprise: a bite on the head by a snake,WTVA reports. The snake jumped out of the cabinet at the store in Corinth, Miss., the local police chief says. The customer's condition isn't clear, but the good news is that chicken snakes aren't venomous, reports the Clarion-Ledger.
A rep for Lowe's didn't have much to say: "All I can share is that we're currently investigating the incident," she tells the paper. Chicken snakes are also known as black rat snakes, among other names, and they can be up to 5 feet long, theClarion-Ledger notes. They have the creepy ability to slither up wooden walls
That's right, two different stores, over 500 miles apart, and two different snakes- but snakes nonetheless, and BOTH happening at Lowes. Bizarre coincidence- or conspiracy......
|Yeah, and when she saw that snake I snuck in at Corinth, she jumped more than the one in Ocala!|
