Stupid Antidote

Rob and I were browsing through the television channels Sunday evening and came across a news story about a man who put a rattlesnake's head inside his mouth to prove it was not dangerous. I think we all know what happened next.

Of course, ticked off snake bit him right on the tongue and his mouth swelled to the point of not breathing. His friends called for help and the man was given antivenom. He survived to tell his story and show gross pictures of his wounds on TV. (Thanks CNN! Nice to know your on top of the hard news stories).

Me: "Yes, there's anti-venom. But is there an antidote for stupid?"

Rob: "Death."

He's right isn't he?

Couldn't sleep so thought I'd do some blog browsing before the kids got up.

Thank goodness for Rob's wit otherwise I would making all sorts of assumptions about the intelligence of you americans!!

Not that there wouldn't be some aussies who might find such a trick hilarious.

That, my friends, is Darwin's theory of evolution being bastardised! That man is supposed to die before he can pass his gene for stupidity into the next generation.

Yes, he is right.

You know how "they" bitch and carry on about giving smokers healthcare?

Why is it then that stupid people are entitled to have their lives saved by sticking a snake in their mouth?
