His Eyes Were Bigger Than His Stomach


I was reading the Beaumont Enterprise tonight and there was this little tiny article about a python trying to eat an alligator in Florida and bursting. I did a Google and found out that people have been receiving this picture and story by e-mail. It seems my friends and relatives who usually fill my in-box with gross pictures, jokes I've read (and heard) a thousand times and cutesy prayers and friendship crap are falling down on the job.

According to Snopes, this picture has been going around for a week or so but this is the first I've heard of it. Here's another article that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald.

I was about to send that picture to you yesterday because I felt it fit nicely with a reoccurring reptile theme in your blog. But then I figured that you would already have it. You didn't disappoint.

After reading the article, I had this mental image of a large python slithering into a store with a giant squirming bulge and asking for some pepto-bisssssssmal.

Ed - That would make a great television commercial.

Al - The scary part is that pythons aren't native to this country. Freaky.

Stephen - It's a weird one alright.

Old Horsetail - Big Gulp!

Lorna - I knew I could count on you.
