I’ve Heard Of Bowling For Dollars

Untitled document

But mugging for snakes? A man held a woman and her two children at gunpoint until she handed over a dozen large green tree snakes worth about $7,000 each.

The man demanded the 12 green tree snakes, which are not venomous, when he approached the door of the woman's home near the South Australian state capital, Adelaide, on Wednesday, state police said Thursday.

He then stuffed the snakes — measuring up to 31 inches long — into a duffel bag and bound the woman's ankles and the hands of two boys before fleeing the scene.

The snakes are valued at A$9,000 ($6,708) each, police said.

Just out of curiosity, how do you fence a hot snake?

    Maybe he was an agent of PETA…

    Maybe you fence a hot snake the same way you fence a hot watch:

    “Psst!! Hey, buddy, want to buy a green tree snake? I’ll make ya a good offer!!” while lifting up the side of your jacket…

    You’d get arrested in most jurisdictions. Except maybe Vegas.
