Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Asphyxiation, on the other hand, is permissible. From the Rocky Mountain News

A 10-foot, 80-pound Burmese python wrapped itself around the neck of its owner Sunday so tightly he couldn’t breathe, police said.

“Dispatchers were trying to give directions on how to remove the snake but without any luck,” said Aurora fire Lt. Dave Varnum. When police arrived, two officers wedged their batons under the folds of the snake in an attempt to loosen him enough to allow Barber to breathe, Varnum said. The 43-year-old man apparently died of asphyxiation, said Medical Center of Aurora spokeswoman Bev Husted-Petry.

The folks in emergency services at Aurora might want to write this little tip down: next time, kill the snake.

And no, “Monty” is neither an original nor a clever name for a python. It’s probably why the snake was pissed in the first place.

Another fine gem from Obscure Store.
