    I’m going to get all Freudian and say that this represents the triumph of the western industrial phallus over the native phallus.

    The Flikr link sez ‘Page not found’
    Wanted that for wallpaper.

    He’s going to make them eat apples.

    Pit vipers sense IR radiation from their prey. I imagine the IR signature from that lamp filament would make a nice target.

    That is one heck of a masterful illustration!

    Are those batteries you shoot out of a gun? Cause I could use me come of them.

    Snake just looks like it wants to party.

    (You might have to turn up your music and have a drink to get that same effect.)

    Maybe I’m just talking out of my arse, but since snakes are cold-blooded, I don’t think they’re much of a risk at night.

    Which kinda makes the ad seem typically tawdry.

    They see danger, I see a snake saying, “I’m walkin’ here, I’m walkin’ here!” Or I guess technically that would be “I’m slitherin’ here!”

    I’ll tell you, the one time I heard a snake rattle in the dark I sure wished I had a flashlight handy. Just have to walk away slowly and hope you guessed the right direction, not so easy if the buzzworm is under a vehicle or something.
