I hear snake is tasty

Whether you think it’s real or not and whether we can stop it or not, can we agree on one thing: Global warming has jumped the shark! First, it killed the Lochness monster and now it’s putting snakes on a plane:

As climate change warms the nation, giant Burmese pythons could colonize one-third of the USA, from San Francisco across the Southwest, Texas and the South and up north along the Virginia coast, according to U.S. Geological Survey maps released Wednesday.

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel with this global alarmism, aren’t they?

  2. tgirsch Says:

    Didn’t the phrase “jump the shark” jump the shark about a decade ago?

  3. SayUncle Says:

    Yes. And the phrase “jump the shark” jumped the shark jumped the shark about two years ago.

    Can they be bred to like the taste of hippies? If so, I am not sure I see the downside.

    So are we talking exotic pets that escaped / were abandoned, or are they floating across from Burma on the fleeting remnants of the arctic ice?
    Sounds like a fun and exciting hatband/belt/boot income opportunity, to me.
    The best global warming / solar output analogy I can think of is putting your hand next to a 100 watt (non-flourescent) lightbulb. Feel the heat, get the message…. The painfully obvious joke about why the left doesn’t ‘get’ this example will, mercifully, be left as an exercise for the ‘intelligence-abled’.

    I agree with mark; sounds like an opportunity to me. People can get pets (pythons make decent pets), items made from the skin, and I can personally attest that there is nothing wrong with eating snakes. I also imagine that the areas they inhabit have little or no rodent problems.

    Or stray cats. Another win.

    Maybe we’ll see a bigger increase in the number of people purchasing .410 ready handguns?

    I think you meant “put snakes in the plain states”.

  10. Justthisguy Says:

    It doesn’t matter, because they taste like chicken, right? Snork.

  11. Gregg Says:

    Actually no they taste like snake, which is more like frog than chicken.

    Somehow I don’t see them big ole snakes living through an AZ summer…
