For Those of You Who Twitter

…someone you might want to follow, while you still can is @BronxZoosCobra. For a snake, he’s pretty hilarious…

If you see a bag of peanuts inexplicably moving along the ground at Yankee Stadium today. Just ignore it. It’s probably nothing.

Got a bagel at H & H Bagels on upper west side. When I ordered I said, “I’ll have the snakes on a PLAIN.” He did not laugh. Tough crowd.

Good morning! I’m up and bright eyed and bushy…well, I’m tailed.

Bronx Zoo Cobra Found

Rest easy, New York, the escaped cobra is safe and sound. The Bronx Zoo’s Egyptian cobra that disappeared from its cage six days ago was found “coiled, sort of secluded in a dark corner” a couple hundred feet from its enclosure, says zoo director Jim Breheny. It was captured by a zoo employee using “special tongs.”

“Special tongs”, I’ll bet. Like, TWENTY FUCKING FEET LONG tongs and the guy was wearing a protective suit like he was fixing the Fukushima reactor.

Still, it’s a shame. I hope they let him keep his smart phone. Or he stashed one before he got nailed. You can’t keep genius like this down.

Figuratively speaking.
UPDATE: There’s a movement afoot, even if the movement’s object…has no feet.

We just need Obama to stay the hell out of it. Otherwise, the snake is toast.

    Thanks to whoever is responsible for that. Brilliant. 🙂

    Well, that explains the Andy Cohen rant on “Watch What Happens” last night after “Top Chef”–I had no idea whom he was yelling at. Funny. I hope the cobra keeps it up.

    “We demand the release of the Bronx Zoo Cobra, six mice, and a plane to India.”

    lol – good one.

    You wouldn’t need 20 foot tongs if it’s an Egyptian cobra – they don’t spit. Just a snake catcher stick would do. (And snake-handling knowledge.)

    With all the cold weather in the area, the Cobra’s lucky to be alive. Maybe Destro hooked him up with a place to crash for a few days.
