    So - when will we get spam selling these snakes?

    Talk about an extension.

    Oh Really??

    After all your references to trouser snakes? I'd be banned if I.... No I can't do it... somethings are just going too far, however I know there is an equally bad pun out there. And I'll be back later today...

    Sitting down to pee

    Men have this wonderful ability to pee standing up. Surely if he was standing up he would have seen the offending creature and given it a golden shower from a distance.

    If this plonker went girly style then he gets everything thats coming to him

    Please Doc..

    At hospital he asked the doc "Can you take the pain away, but leave the swelling?"

  11. Anonymous Coward

    Good job its not poisonous...

    ...Otherwise he'd need someone to suck the poison out....

  12. WinHatter

    sorry !!!

    please don't ban me ;o)

    So the net result...

    ... is he was almost neutered?

    bite by a rat snake from taiwan

    fortunately, not the same as a bite from a rat monkey from sumatra.

    one ends up in hospital, the other ends up in a lawnmower.

    it's life.

    It's no good standing on the seat

    the snakes in here can jump ten feet.

    Women scream when they see snakes...although they don't have todgers to bite!

    Lucky girls.

    They also scream when in combat with a fairly larged veteran fighting snake of the one-eyed variety... and let's face it, those are more common in the UK than rat snakes!

    perhaps he had to do more than "siphon the python"

    A snake's mouth isn't always clean

    Especially after drinking water from a rural Taiwanese toilet.

    From somewhere around Pakistan eastwards the do it sitting down. Nearly all of East Asia in fact.

    Perhaps he wasn't sitting down to pee. Perhaps he was sitting down to do a Richard.

    Imagine not wanting to post a witty comment like that under your real name. I'd want to take credit for it, personally.

    Women scream when they see snakes, eh? Well, a muscle-bound alpha chap I used to know would scream when he saw a butterfly. So think on.

    @ Sitting down to pee

    First, the sitting down is actually the more hygienic way to pee in a toilet, but putting pedantry aside - did he remove the snake before or after doing the business?

    Just curious if that snake was taking the p*ss..

    (No seriously)

    He and his wife are missionaries in Africa. One place they stayed had only an outside privvy; one night Andrew needed a pee, grabbed his torch (oh you smutty bastards) and went outside into the loo.

    With torch under armpit (pointing down) he reached for the lid to see a black mamba curled around the porcelain - they want me to visit tem sometime; no fucking way Ike, seriously.

    "'knife-like' todger pain"

    May these words never darken my door again. Further descriptions of "'knife-like' todger pain" shall result in my withdrawl from your newsletter and/or mailing list. Todger pain is nothing to joke about!

    The Glory of Globalization...

    ... is in the constant flow of terror-tales from rural Asia. Unhappy with your insignificant worker bee existence in the first world? Fret not. Thanks To The Internet you know that in rural Asia, people are so poor they have to use their own dicks as bait to catch their dinner-snakes. You sure remember the rat problem in rural Asia that resulted from people snacking away all the snakes, too. That's the people wo were not killed in the latest bee-transport vs. rural road disaster. So cheer up, shut up and get back to work, before YOU get outsourced to rural Asia too.

    Another classic from Lester

    "*We resisted it, and so can you. The first person to make the "When he looked down, he saw the big snake... and then he saw the reptile too" gag will be banned from El Reg for a month."

    So does he need to coil the snake up before zipping?

    /Oh PLEASE DO BAN ME for a month :) After that comment I deserve it

    @Michael Walsh

    "Classic comments all... does Sarah need a new keyboard, or have you become immune?"

    You mean you dont know? She floats like a butterfly stings like a bee? Why else would this big burly guy she knows scream when he sees her coming?

    /Im dead for this arnt I?

    laugh if you must

    Ok it is a big joke.

    But, I for one have had a similar experience in recent years.

    In the middle of the night, I make my way to the privy, keeping out the lights to avoid completely waking up and have a seat. After a short while I experience pain not in the snake but the nearby rocks. I too jump to attention and flip on the lights. (Something about that experience.)

    Not a snake but the john is crawling with ants. The biting kind apparently.

    So the next time you back in just remember that not all may be as it was the day before.

    was the snake grabbing something to pull itself out by?
