I’m Not Too Bright That Way

June 2, 2006 at 2:49 am 3 comments

Earlier this month a  young man in Tooele, Utah was in the high school parking lot with a female friend when she noticed an 8-inch baby rattlesnake.  She warned him not to pick it up.  Silly girl.  So, of course, he picked it up.  It was just a cute little baby rattler.

And it bit him.  Hard. Reflecting upon his choice of action, he remarked, ". . .I'm not too bright that way."

But at least he is honest.

                        Don't pick it up! 

Interesting note:  a baby rattler's bite is actually more poisonous than an adult rattler.

    Tooele. That’s not a name that comes up very often. My dad used to live there.

    Thanks for the pronunciation.

    I need to find a recipe for rattlesnake.

    In Texas we have pretty fields of bluebonnets in March and April… everyone just loves to take pictures of their kids in bluebonnets. We call it “butt prints in the bluebonnets”.

    I have a friend who works as an ER nurse. She says they always know when the bluebonnets are in bloom cause they see an uptick in kids with rattlesnake bites.

    Be careful out these folks. Rattlesnakes are easy to sneak up on in the early spring.
