Hospital Says Wal-Mart Shopper Didn't Suffer Snake Bite
More questions surround a man from the Brownwood, Texas, area who claimed he was bitten by a rattlesnake in a Brownwood Wal-Mart.

KBWD-AM and KOXE-FM in Brownwood report Brownwood Regional Medical Center doctors told police Douglas Hatchett had not been bitten by a rattler when they examined him Monday.

2. This nut bag ...
obvious saw the Urban Legends show on TLC a week ago.

On legend contends that a guy smuggled a catus into the US from Mexico. It begins acting weird (shaking). He calls a cactus expert, and the expert tells him to get out of the house quickly.

When the expert arrives, they bring the cactus outside, and torche it with a flame thrower. Inside are the burnt carcases of some rare gigantic deadly tarantulas (sp?).

Another example, was were a woman gets bitten by baby snakes that had hatched inside a coat.

Since Walmart imports everything, this guy was trying to take advantage of the possibility that something like this could happen.

Cheers
Drifter

6. Snakes
I don't know about this guy. But I have heard a credible report of a Canadian manager of a produce department finding a corn snake in a crate of bok choi. The cute little thing had ridden in that crate all the way from the Southeast US to somewhere up in Canada. It was just fine. It now has a nice home north of the border.
