The Coolest Thing to Happen This Week

St. Patrick Driving the Snakes From Ireland
I hate snakes.  I hate snakes of all varieties.  I believe that the Sacred Scriptures provide compelling evidence of our commission to exterminate them (Cf. Genesis 3:13-15).  So, it was with great glee (and a degree of revulsion) that I was informed today that some of the neighborhood boys, while out biking on some of the local trails, found and killed a rattlesnake.  I would likely have screamed and then climbed a tree (which would have been sight to behold).  They chose, instead, to smash it with a rock.  And then they cut its head and rattle off.  And then they took it home and ate it.  This is by far the coolest thing to happen this week.  Kudos, boys. 


  1. For some reason, this post just made my morning. I've narrowed the reason down to the fact that they ate the snake, or the image of you screaming and climbing a tree. Between those, it's a toss-up.

  2. You know Father, its the little things in life that just bring a smile to your face. One down, only a couple million to go... See you in a few weeks
