News, but not the serious kind
What do you call that dance, sir?
Blog Guy, you’ve been great about career advice, especially offering tips to help figure out if people may have chosen the wrong line of work. Keep it coming, please.Sure. Are you leaving on a business trip? Take off your clothes, look in a full-length mirror and count the number of live python snakes you see taped to your body in stockings.If it’s more than say, two or three, maybe you should be looking on monster.com for a new job.Pythons? What kind of imbecile would tape that many pythons to his body?The Norwegian kind of imbecile. Customs officials stopped a guy with a tarantula in his bag, so they decided to give him the full body treatment. They found FOURTEEN pythons taped to him.Yikes! I wonder why he didn’t go for 20?Because that would have gotten in the way of the 10 lizards hidden in cans that were also taped to him.Blog Guy, you like this story, don’t you? And if I know you, you’re holding back something that’s even better.Well yes, there was a wonderful quote in one of the papers that covered the story.An official was quoted as saying, “Customs officers quickly realized the man was smuggling animals, because his whole body was in constant motion.”Duh, I guess it would be! Well, here’s your problem right here, sir!
