"The man had 14 royal pythons and 10 albino leopard geckos under his clothes."

Smuggling:
[The pythons] were hidden in stockings duct-taped to the man's abdomen. The geckos were in boxes taped to his thighs.

The comment there, about "new meaning to the trouser snake"--LOL.

"Is that a python duct-taped to your abdomen or are you just happy to see me?"

This is one more reason why women need to avoid internet dating.

David said...

let the pythons have at him please.

Albino leopard geckos?

How racist can you get!!

Boy, that guy's got balls.

OK, I'll say it.

He must have been very glad to see somebody. Meade meeting Althouse, for example.

Was it Titus?

Pictures please.

Tibore said...

So, is that a python in your pants or are you just... oh, screw it. Too easy.

Tibore said...

On top of that, Maguro beat me to it (*grumble, while*).

Enough is enough! I've had it with these motherf*cking snakes on this motherf*cking ferry!

So why was this noble animal lover arrested? Maybe those were his fan mascots for sports teams renamed after their old names dissing native americans had beeen dropped.

You know, at some point, I feel like you have to say, "OK, he deserves to have these."

Like the guys who come to America inside the airplane wheel wells.

Damn.

He isn't an animal lover. Smugglers are net animal killers. He is part of a group that kills 3-4 animals for every one they succeed in getting smuggled in and getting a payout for.
There should be a law that caught smugglers get caned on the spot. Bloodily caned. In front of all the other people passing through customs.

At least that fraternity is definitely going to accept him now.

C-4...I was defending this man as a good advocate would. But if you think that any person who endanger snakes and geckos should be dealt with harshly, then what is so wrong with my opposing the actual slaughter of the men, women and children in Israel?

Cedarford said...

Traditional guy - Nothing, provided you don't put Israel's interests over America's.

traditionalguy said...

C-4...I give up. So when would the slaughter of the innocent men, women and children in Israel ever be in America's interest?

Customs officials found the reptiles, which are not endangered, Sunday during a search following the discovery of a tarantula in one of the man's bags.

When I see stories like this I always wonder which is true: 1) The smugglers are idiots and do this with almost no chance of success or 2) what we see on the news is the tip of the iceberg, and Holland is full of geckos and pythons.

C'mon, use your imagination. Wouldn't something like "get fed to feral pigs" have more poetic justice?

I still think this guy is an innocent football fan. For example the TCU team is undefeated this year and has never used a native American name, but calls its team after a Texas lizard called a Horned Frog.
