An Oz sporting club has been forced to call for ophidian SWAT assistance after a python orgy threatened to destroy its boatshed roof. According to the Cairns Post, at least half a dozen scrub pythons – each at least 3.5 metres long – have been getting jiggy above the ceiling of the Hekili Outrigger Canoe Club, suitably located …
For a good time...
...you can't beat Yorkey's Knob
(Mine's the one with the hefty trouser snake)
Is that a python...
or are you just pleased to see me?
And here I was, thinking...
... that a bunch of coders with a serious case of cabin fever were let loose on an unsuspecting resort town.
..to avoid PyCon this year...
Shurely 'Nagaina'? The one with a copy of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi in the pocket, please.
the coat with the Harry Potter books in the pocket, please.
No wonder the "snake removal" specialist failed twice - obviously one would need the Sword of Gryffindor to vanquish such a beast.
Coat? Yes please, and the hat. The Sorting Hat, of course...
Checking my coat's pockets...
... for Tom Riddle's diary.
And what, pray,
is a knob canoe anyway?
...It is the Yorkeys Knob Canoe Club, hence title.
It's that thing
you stick in your crotch when you go out to bat when playing cricket.
er, check icon..
any excuse for a knob joke, hence post
You must be quite short...

Wouldn't that mean he's quite long?
Something lorry drivers tend to keep quiet about?
That's probably "Nagini"
Unless that was another of those systematic word changes in the US editions...
Or a transliteration
of an Ocker accent
Golf course threatened also then ?
Fun golf course there too. Half surrounded by great swamp, so good chance of losing a ball, or arm and leg to crocs if one went off fairway. Water trap was a sod too, right in front of tee off on No 9. As much fun as an open air theatre in Northern Territory being interupted by a couple of amourous athletic snakes one night. People scattering everywhere. I miss remote areas, dull one day, hillarious the next.
Losing an arm to a croc during golf... ouch...
...How many strokes is -that- gonna cost you?
...Yeah, yeah - I'll be here all week. Try the Lewis Page and tip your waitress.

If it don't bite ya, choke ya or sting ya, it'll eat ya.
Ya gotta love it.
Correct term for a group of pythons, orgying or otherwise
is a "Django"
And here's me expecting an article about an exciting ending to a code-fest at a LUG.
So the pythons showed
the full Monty?
Mine is the one with the Holy Grail DVD in the pocket
