So there’s this video of a baby in India or somewhere playing with what looks like a cobra.
Now I’ve seen some crazy stuff in this world, like musical Santa Clause:
But a child being carelessly flung in front of a deadly snake just seems lightyears beyond ridiculous. I mean, Michael Jackson’s baby-balcony antics seem like responsible parenting compared to this.
According to YouTube the baby snake video has been online for 3 years, but I’ve only just become aware of it after someone stuck it on their Facebook page. The only comment so far was a smiley face with the teeth, like this :D
Really? It makes someone happy to see a baby playing with a deadly snake?
I can only hope it’s either some trick photography or the snake’s at least been de-fanged or isn’t actually capable of doing any harm for some other reason …but then, even if it can’t bite the baby, it still looks like its doing its level best to strangle it at then end of the video.
In conclusion, I think we should all agree that the minimum snake-handling age should be raised to nine.
And Santa should be banned from entering metropolitan air space until his guitar can be found and destroyed.
