Default So I got bit by a snake...

My brother in law called us as we were leaving for dinner. Expecting black racer...but no. He was a thick mofo, easily 2 inches in diameter. Grabbed him behind neck and tail and he still got me four times. I am not dead. Pretty sure he was non-venomous.

Is the snake your next meal? Bite him back?


Good luck, hope it doesn't get infected

That's the first sign of poisonous snake bites. The inability to photograph the suspect.

You need to start drinking now.

That's the punchline and here's the joke


Two friends are out hunting and Bob needs to take a dump. He hangs his ass over a log and before he knows what happens, a rattlesnake bites him right in the junk.

He yells to his buddy Jim and tells him what happened. Jim doesn't know what to do so he runs to the closest town and finds a doctor.

The doctor tells him to make an incision and suck out the venom.

Jim runs back and yells to Bob, " I found a doctor".

Bob asks what the doctor said.

Jim says " You're gonna die"

The second sign is the inability to distinguish between a venomous and non-venomous snake.

So Craig - thy the heck do you pick up a snake? Just either let it go or get something and whack it dead. No snake is going to be biting me because I tried to pick it up.

Next time just grab a flat shovel and dispatch the culprit. Better safe than venomized.

This is the clown who bit me. Florida Water Snake. About 2.5 to 3' long and nearly 1.5-2.0 inch in girth.

Water snakes here in PA have very bad attitudes. I see their FL cousin have the same "calm demeanor"

Water snakes can be pretty aggressive. Bite is not poisonous but high chances of infection. Best see a doctor about some shots

Washed it aggressively. Leaving on flight at 7:00 am tomorrow. If I die, I die. Had my tetanus shot in the last year. Not that that has dick to do with snakes.
