Little Bunny Frou Frou

I was just watching the news and saw a story about a pet python who ate a queen-sized electric blanket - which was still plugged in. This happened when it was enjoying its weekly meal of a bunny [Oh my freaking God! Who could feed a cute little helpless bunny to a disgusting snake every week? That borders on psychotic in my opinion, but then owning an 82 foot long snake does too]. It took two hours for the vet to remove the blanket. The snake's owners have some serious issues:

1. They own a snake who could eat them in their sleep.
2. They have no problem buying and sacrificing precious animals to sustain this beast.
3. They feed the snake on their bed.
4. They use an electric blanket. In July. If Missouri is in a state of emergency from the heat, I can't imagine that it's much cooler where they live.

I agree. 100% Psychotic. I am not a reptile person either, but I am willing to see beyond that- to a point. That point ends when you add the 4 items you listed.

Did they live in a double wide trailer that still had Christmas lights hanging and a ratty old moldy couch on their front porch?

Was the blanket to keep their beloved snakey-wakey warm? Those people should just get a damn dog!

I just read about this in the paper this morning. Apparently the blanket was on top of the "cage" and the bunny somehow got tangled in the blanket. (It was probably trying to escape the jaws of death). The hungry snake made a mistake and ate the blanket too. My guess is that the owner drops the bunny in and runs out the door so he doesn't have to witness the horrors.
My question is, what is to love about a pet snake??? I've never understood this. It should be against the law. These snakes belong in a jungle. PETA??

WTF??? I know I've had a wee too much pinot tonight, but I can't even begin to wrap my mind around this. Oh my Lord, I don't even know where to start. I mean, an electric blanket in JULY????

I love bunnies...that I do know.

That can't possibly be right. 82 feet is way too big for a snake. Snakes don't even get 30 feet long.

Anonymous - I occasionally exaggerate.

No, no, I do think they can get at least 70 feet long.

My neighbor used to have a 94 foot long snake. Not to mention that snake skin you found...you TOLD us that was like 75 feet long.

Which neighbor? Sidida?

YES! How did you guess? They always had to have the best, newest, most expensive toys (wonderful people to be neighbors with, because we'd get their barely used cast offs) so you KNOW they'd be the ones to break the world record for "longest snake". Bizarre, huh?

Ha!

God bless you for the incorrect spelling of his name. He's probably the only one in the world with that name and I'd hate for anyone in this town to find my blog by doing a search for him. Yeah, it's a stretch, but this is my life after all.

Actually, Giant Anacondas can get to be about 100 feet long. hmmmmpf. I guess you weren't exaggerating afterall.

Cory exaggerate? Never!

30ft? 82ft? What the hell's the difference...a snake that long has no business living amoung humans.

OK, Cory...we need you back to tell us the rest of the words to the Little Bunny Frou Frou song.

We used to sing it with the boys when they were small and now I can't remember how it goes but I've been humming it all week and driving everyone crazy.
