Rattlesnakes Make Poor Passengers

I see a theme forming here at Squirrel Queen’s home this week.

Discovery Channel gets to have Shark Week. SQ is putting together Snake Week.

Now, no hissing from the peanut gallery. Hissing, get it, huh, hissing like a snake. OK, I’ll stop with that.

But back to Snakes.

Referring to the headline above, this is not a movie review for “Snakes on a Plane.”

Instead, it’s a story about a motorcyclist in Louisiana whose journey came to an abrupt end when the rattlesnake he’d tied to his cycle began to come loose.

Yes, you read that right.

Let’s review. The snake he tied to his cycle.

Here’s the link for the entire tale.

Vroom, Vroom, Hiss, Wobble, Crash.


Rattlesnake Vodka is Meaner than Bacon Vodka

I understand there’s a buzz in the liquor world over Bacon Vodka, but a man in Texas has come up with something with more bite – Rattlesnake Vodka.

Agents for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission seized 410 bottles of the hissing vodka that each included a 10-inch long rattlesnake from Bayou Bob’s Brazos River Rattlesnake Ranch in Palo Pinto County.

Supposedly, there’s an aphrodisiac quality to the reptile-infused illegal hooch.

Sure, eating the worm in tequila is supposed to provide visions. Imagine the kick this venomous vodka could provide. That’s just what the authorities thought.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Internet searches show Bayou Bob’s isn’t the only location selling exotic libations which are popular in Asia. Thai scorpion vodka, cobra whiskey, giant centipede whiskey, herbal gecko lizard wine and Mekong River eel wine are ll available online.
