The Story of the Old Woman and the Snake

An old woman was walking down the road when she saw a gang of thugs
beating a poisonous snake. She screamed at the thugs and rescued the
snake, taking it back to her home where she nursed it back to health.

One day on their way into town, the woman picked up the snake and he
bit her repeatedly. “Oh God,” she screamed, “I am dying. I am dying!”
She turned to the snake and looked it in the eyes. “I saved your life.
I was your friend. I trusted you. Why did you bite me?”

The snake turned to face her as she drew he final breath and hissed,

“What did you expect? You knew I was a snake when you took me home.”

Yep...kind of ike the Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

Hmmmm, well let's form us a

Hmmmm, well let's form us a posse and get out a long rope. Wait, would that be a hate crime?

EDIT: I should point out, totally joking around here. Although I am interested to see how the community reacts, particularly the bloggers who were just dying to know. 

Nice Norm.

Don't quit your day job.

I don't plan on it

Thanks for building me up though, appreciate that big-guy ;)

I've had

The pleasure of the cmpany of several snakes as pets. They are fascinating and will not bite if handled properly. BTW, there are no poisonous snakes, only venomous ones; but I digress.

I am not surprised. PS I have nothing against snakes...

It's kind of anti-climactic

Like Rob says, we already knew Kingsbury was a snake.

Soory Rob

but your point, if there is one, escapes me. If this is about Jeff and Joe, the analogy is false because Jeff choose to strike. Or is this about Joe being dumb enough to try to heal a snake?
