Snake In Your Bonnet

It sounds worse when English newspapers report it. The bonnet isn't a hat -- it's the hood of your car. Finding a 16 foot rock python under the hood of your car is bad, especially when you have just watched it slither under your car. When it doesn't come out, do you have the guts to open the hood?


Even more surprising, since there was no one around to help, they drove -- WITH THE SNAKE IN THE CAR -- three miles to a lookout station to coax out the snake. Here's the link to the bonnet story.

By the way, they were there to see lions.

If they'd've had a car with a rational sized engine there wouldn't have been enough room for a snake that size. Anyhow, they were invading the snake's territory!

'Your coil’s all right but you’ve got a bit too much bite on your clutch...'. For some reason, I just love that line! 😊

Some people just seem to be able to squeeze all the funny out of a situation.

No, I wouldn't open the bonnet. Yes,I would be quite happy to drive somewhere - car engines get *very* hot - over the boiling point of water - and I'd hope that the snake would be too uncomfortable, and slither right on out.
The bit that impresses me most is that the snake was able to get itself into such a small space.
And 1,000 internets to Tyrusguy for the best groaner in quite a while!

Better a snake under your bonnet than a snake up your boot! 😝
