Well, there’s your problem right here, ma’am…
It’s fun to read between the lines. We have this photo of a very, very large snake being carried off by guys in a village in Brazil. The caption says the snake was found at an “abandoned house.” Really? What a surprise to learn that a house containing a 20-foot anaconda was abandoned, instead of fully occupied by folks determined to hold their ground.
The caption further informs us the snake was reported by “frightened” residents. Good, that clears up the motivation, in case you thought they were just meddling buttinskies complaining for no good reason.
Lastly, the caption warns us: NOT FOR SALE FOR MARKETING OR ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS. What a let-down! Imagine the value of this photo in advertising, I don’t know, maybe snake suitcases, anaconda traps, baseball caps or whatever. It’s Madison Avenue’s loss. Here is a video report:
