Boob-Biting Snakes and Other Distractions

Sometimes a guy needs a good old-fashioned reptile-attacking-a-breast video to help take his mind off serious world events.

As Holly mentioned in a recent post, this week has had kind of a heavy, dark feel. All that the guys at work can talk about is the evolving crisis in Japan. I'm lucky that I work with so many intellectual, analytical guys (all wearing tool belts, no less), but a few hours of this type of talk can leave me silently wishing for a dose of comic relief. And I'm talking about comedy of the Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler variety. Something dumb-funny -- something that makes me laugh while simultaneously making me feel slightly ashamed of myself for laughing. You know, dude humor.

Which is the reason why this video of a snake biting a woman on the boob caught my eye. Okay, one of the reasons. Another reason? Boobs. I'm not even going to apologize to Holly for that one, because I trust that she gets it. But to any woman out there who thinks I'm a big misogynistic pig for laughing hysterically as the snake bites the boob, here's the thing: Holly laughed louder. Way louder. Now, sources are reporting that the snake has died from silicone poisoning, but my money says that's a complete urban myth. And the bite victim is reportedly fine, by the way. Thoughts?
