All hail The Onion and it’s “Today Now” show! As the host notes of this story, “It’s the moment that every parent with a 20-foot long snake fears most, and one you can’t possibly predict.”
(Sorry about the 30-sec ad before it…which I don’t even understand):
The pic w/ the mouse costume is too much.
Great Friday funny.
“Jaws is like a son to us”
I’m dying here.
“To donate to buy a much needed Therapy Snake”
Thanks for the laughs this morning. The sensationalism in the media of accidental deaths in children is nauseating. I’m loving the Onion News Network, so hard to tell which is real and fake anymore.
Saw the picture and couldn’t watch the video. I hate you, this is almost as bad as clowns.
I couldn’t stop laughing the whole time I was watching this. I love the part where the mom talks leaving her son and the snake playing together, while she went shopping, then to the movies. Also, it’s hilarious the way the tone of the show becomes so cheery so quickly when the anchors, with big smiles on their faces, are introducing the next segment.
OMG, for a second I thought this was real. You got me!
Isn’t this segment actually satirizing those of us who don’t want to blame parents for every tragedy?
I don’t know why you have a problem with this. If it prevents even one family from allowing their python to babysit their child, it doesn’t matter how unusual it is, it’s worth publicizing.
Powers — or maybe it’s just laughing along with us at the idea that if parents are not heaped with guilt and judged by paranoid standards, there will be no common sense about putting children in dangerous situations.
God Bless the Onion, oh how I love them so. Thanks for sharing Lenore.
I came across this fitting parenting gem too. I probably look like this when I’m out alone with my three. Hahah
“I came across this fitting parenting gem too”
And there was this:
When viewing this, I thought it really happened but when I came to the name of the web site, then I knew it was a hoax. I could not fathom this happening. I am not saying something like this can’t happen as anything can happen. The 30 second ad of Dennys at the beginning, I thought maybe a python dinner is on the menu. ha ha
This site is the best! I am a teacher and a tutor. This is the best
Bwhahahah! That link you shared is hysterical as well!!
