Snake Man theme song
by Carman Clark

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer


A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

 Great Breakfast Dirty Tub 

Great Breakfast with a Dirty Tub

 

 

As Jason Clark's program, The Snakes of Georgia Encounter, continues to grow in popularity, we've often found ourselves traveling more and more and as a result spending many nights in hotel rooms across the state. Some places have definitely been better than others. One particular hotel that we frequent four or five times a year happens to have an excellent breakfast bar and is thus one of our favorite places to stay. As always, we travel with an array of reptiles. Some venues provide a safe place for our snakes to spend the night but often can't adequately accommodate our alligators. So, the alligators, which are still quite small, stay with us at the hotel in the bath tub. The gators have never caused a problem before and always seem to enjoy their warm over night soak. I recently received a phone call from this particular hotel which stated that they would be adding a $100. cleanup fee to our room. I couldn't imagine why. We've never left a room in disarray before. The manager then began to inform me that the extra fee was due to the fact that someone in our party had defecated in the bathtub! Usually the alligators do not do this in the tub and if we would have noticed it, we would have never left it for the maid.


After all, Sarah's the one that was responsible for the gator's that day and she's a neat freak! Now, here was my quandary. Should I save any embarrassment and tell the manager that it was not us humans but actually a few alligators that soiled the tub? Doing this would definitely prohibit us from returning to their hotel and delighting in their breakfast that we have always enjoyed so much. After all, do you think she would believe it was a gator? On the other hand, if I don't tell her the truth then she'll think that one of us may have missed the toilet. I decided to apologize for my "wife's accident" and pay the bill.

 

Moral of the story - Don't poop where you sleep.
