The Further Adventures of Doug

(Back in the snake den, Doug the Diamond Back Anacondasin Mamba is talking.... and talking.... and talking.... He corners another snake and stops him when he tries to slither away.)

"So wait till I tell you what happened!"

"Gee Doug, the wife was expecting me to bring home dinner, and I need to get a mouse quick."

"Wait, this'll just take a minute. I was in vacation in Pennsyltucky-"

"How did you get up there?"

"I flew."

"Sure, you sprouted wings."

"No, I flew in an airplane."

"Oh come on, tell me another one."

"It's true. Haven't you heard that snakes can be on planes? Well anyway, I was vacationing in a place called the Pine Creek Gorge. It's got lots of nice rocks and flat, level gravel that we can sun ourselves on. So I was resting there, soaking up some rays, conditioning the new skin - I'd shed the old coat, and all of a sudden I feel some water land on me. I looked up to see if it was raining and I saw one of those strange big creatures on two wheels squirting water at me from his water bottle."

"So what did you do?"

"I showed him who was boss. I reared up and shook my rattle at him."

"And what did he do?"

"Well, I'd hoped he'd drop the water bottle and run away, but he didn't. He took out a camera and took photos of me. I was flattered of course, but I realized he may have had more water, so I slithered away. I kept shaking my rattle so he knew I was taking it easy on him. "

"You were lucky. Those two-wheeled creatures are dangerous."

"Yeah. We need to get them outlawed. You should contact all your relatives who are lawyers or work for the government."

I was wondering when Doug would show up again.
Good thing you didn't throw your face at him.....he's pretty brutal.
I knew the "water squirt" worked on dogs.......but snakes?
(stroking his beard) hmmmm.

Careful, the consequences of Doug encounters can take days to show themselves. Heck, sometimes it can affect people who were not even there.

Here's Doug:



It looks like he'd just shed his skin, which explains why he's so dark in color.

I don't think that is Doug. It looks more like Doug's second cousin, who has a shady past. He probably had to use a different name because he's not supposed to leave the state without letting his probation officer know first.

Seriously, I was not aware there were Rattlesnakes in Pennsylvania. The only thing I would spray at him would come from the business end of my Mossberg 500 combat shotgun.

http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/FORESTRY...tlesnakes.aspx

"Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Bureau of Forestry's 2.1 million acres of State Forest lands provide the largest blocks of timber rattlesnake range remaining in the Northeastern states. .... The presence of timber rattlesnakes is one of the components that gives a wild flavor to State Forest land. The largest populations of timber rattlesnakes occur in the remote, heavily forested regions of Pennsylvania. "

I have and honestly I didn't think it tasted like chicken. The taste was very mild, I thought it tasted more like a white fish than chicken. Bones are pretty similar to fish as well.

Meh. So if everything tastes like chicken then what on earth does chicken taste like?

Doug currently has a tactical advantage with my new found slow motion movement. I get anywhere near Dour right now and I'll be so cleaned out of water bottles I'll need a bail out all of my own.
