Kentucky Pastor wants his venomous snakes returned from Tennessee

I wasn't aware the Volunteer State had made off with Turtle Mcconnell and Bland Paul.

Good for Tennessee.

1. Well, be fair, he's given up on the snakes and just wants the boxes back

Apparently all the snakes he's taken out of those boxes have been puzzled rather than frightened and didn't bite him.

I really have no problem with the snake handlers. They're gentle with the snakes, trying not to harm them. The music is gospel on acid, especially when they bring the snakes out. Above all, the risk is 100% voluntary and they don't proselytize.

They also restrict the fun to adults, only. Kids watch but can't get near the snakes.

They're mostly the good, hardworking folks you find all over the Appalachians. The only way you know who they are is that they're the ones who don't wear their religion on their sleeves.

2. Comical as the headline is...

I hesitated somewhat comparing the hardworking folks you describe with the twin senator smarms from Kentucky. Your added information was interesting.

3. The problem is that those hardworking folks get suckered

into voting scum like that into office, year after year.

7. The authorities should send the boxes back with a couple of Black Mambas in each one.

The snake charmer would last about 30 minutes, if that.
