The other guys dared you to do WHAT?
When I was growing up back in Indiana, we had a few firm rules in our home. No eating candy in the morning, always make your bed, and never put a live cobra head-first into your mouth. My sister did that once, and let me tell you, our mama wouldn’t let us play in the snake drawer again for a month!
This is why I was so shocked to see this photo. Hasn’t anyone ever told him that cobras do not work well for flossing, or that when a cobra and a human tongue go up against each other, it always ends up pretty much the same way?
Well, that’s where flouting the rules will get you. I’ll bet he doesn’t make his bed, either.
