‘Bro, Let Me In!’ Delivery Man in Australia Shocked to See Snake Tapping on Car Window (Photo)

*In what had to be the most bizarre happenstance in the history of weird, a delivery man in Australia head tapping on his car window, looked to his left and saw an 8-foot Black snake looking at him like, “What are you waiting for? Let me in!”  

Kill me now. I would have died right there at the wheel!

I sure hope The Drive writer Dave Bartosiak won’t mind me borrowing his line. I was reading his article and laughed so hard as I read…

And the snake just wasn?t sitting out there chillin?, he was tapping on the window like, ?Bro, let me in!?

Watch: Think You Got ‘Issues?’ This Woman Called 911 Because A Boa Constrictor Was Around Her Neck!

*Some people think they can just get away with anything, unscathed. Hey, everybody knows I just love animals. But with this story I realize even I have a limit. An Ohio woman called 911 (scroll down to listen) and told them to “Hurry!” because she had a “Boa constrictor stuck to my face!”

No sh*t. That’s what she said.

Now before we go any further I will admit: I was young and stupid once. I actually let someone place a boa constrictor (a friend’s pet) around my neck. His name was “Dylan” — you may have heard this story before, because its not the first time I’ve told it.

Matter of fact, I even baby-sat, er, snake-sat the 8-ft reptile while my friend ran errands. She kept him in one of those big glass cases you see in jewelry shops. Dylan was cool. Accustomed to being around people — this girl was an artist. And he was fast. I had always thought huge snakes were too heavy to be fast, but I was wrong!

No. The incident was NOT a fun thing like in this picture.

Dylan would glide around the perimeter of a room like nobody’s business. OMG and he was sneaky. He’d hide in drawers and shit, I’m told.

Years later, I guess Dylan outgrew being anybody’s pet and ended up biting my friend on the arm.

Like I said: I was young and stupid once. Wouldn’t do that today.

It was more like THIS!

But what’s this old dame’s excuse?

Even the 911 operator had to repeat the statement: “You have a boa constrictor on your face?” in that usual deadpan “what’s YOUR story” voice.

But still, you could hear the disbelief. Continue reading

Woman’s Pet Snake Gets Stuck in Her…WHAT? (Watch)

*You’ve seen those people, usually rockers, who have those super-huge holes in their earlobes, right? Personally, I think its disgusting; but its just that, a personal preference.

I mean, its so BIG. 

Which brings me to the incredible nature of this story. A woman in Portland, Ashley, was playing with her pet snake “Bart.” Actually she was trying to take a selfie with it. She was showing it off to the camera and everything. Then the most ridiculous thing happened…

The snake slithered into that big gaping hole in her ear…AND GOT STUCK! Continue reading

Holy Crap! Massive Alligator Just Walks on By as Woman Videotapes (Look!)

alligator, huge

*La dee dah. Imagine you’re just walking along, looking up and all around you, being thankful. And then you stop in your tracks just as a massive-sized alligator crosses your path, “Oh excuse me, I’m just going over here” he seems to say as he strolls on by. This was a moment in the life of a woman visiting?Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland, Florida. She described the video she took of a 12-foot, possibly 800 pound alligator who strolled across the path she was walking on “very exciting.”

Yes she was?is the answer to the question I know crossed your mind just now.

The woman, who took the video over the weekend appears to be standing too close for comfort, but she said she was “close enough” but at a safe distance. Continue reading

*Just in case you think you might be seeing things as you look at the photo above. You kind of are. You are seeing a crocodile named ‘Poncho’ kissing a man named Chito Shedden, a fisherman who saw him injured and alone, and rounded up a group of brave friends to lift the croc and take him to safety.

The reptile reportedly lay dying on a river bank in Siquirres, Costa Rica when the fisherman spotted him. Snedden, a tour guide by trade, kind of fancies himself as an amateur naturalist and as such has learned a few things.

Obviously, how to wrangle in a crocodile without being eaten alive is one! Continue reading
