This is why I read the English papers. The subtle understatement amuses me.

Background: There is a missing Egyptian cobra at the Bronx Zoo.

Worryingly, experts say the cobra is likely to make itself know again when it becomes thirsty... or HUNGRY.

I have to say that the fifteen minutes that it takes to die of cobra-bite would have to be the worst fifteen minutes of your life.

mrs. miss alaineus said...

Wildernesschic,
Masters, indeed, love.

Ms. Moon,
Oddly, they are the only snake I find semi-cute. Not sure why. They fascinate me.

Drollgirl,
Me too, babe. Me too.

Mrs. Miss A.,
Sound plausible to me, man.

Christina,
Every DAMN day. Love that paper.

Young at Heart,
I'd run my ass off from a snake!

Mrs. Miss A.,
Any comment that quotes Samuel Jackson is a winner with me. I HERO WORSHIP AND ADORE him, especially since I saw he is a UGA football fan. Me too!

Love to all my bitches,

SB
