HEART OF TEXAS SNAKE HANDLERS (1)

Seems like this dude (Jackie) is matching or trying to break a record of how many live rattlers you can hold in your mouth at one time. Yes, someone actually keeps track of something like that..I think it's in the Guiness World Record Book... Am I spelling that right?..



I don't know what they're doing here, they are just piling snakes on this dude...and you'll notice, no one is holding a gun on any of them either. Which they would have to do to get me in there. They have 2 girls in the pit now..used to be a big no no for girls in the pit. Now there were so many people in the pit at one time I was starting to freak out. That's how people get bit. Standing around doing shit and not paying attention and first thing you know you got a rattler hanging off your ass. Some one asked me if I had ever wanted to get in the pit with the snakes and I said 'No, I don't need to prove anything and my balls are just the right size for me, thank you very much."



I think this is Kay one of the girls who wrangles snakes. She did the sleeping bag bit that day..I have slept with some snakes before, but nothing like that.

If The Boss saw this she would run screaming. She's from the Phillipines and there most of the snakes are the two step kinds. You get bit, walk 2 steps and drop dead.

Nice to see that there's gender equality in the snake pit these days. Texas sure is a liberal place.

nitty:yeah, i've heard of them kinda snakes..for $40 you can buy a snake bite kit and it power sucks the vemom out till you get to the hospital..but leaves a butt ugly scar..
debrah:i still dont know if im all for it..women always over compensate when they do a 'man's type' job..i know i did for years..and in a pit with 30+ rattlers you need to be alert and careful.
