I thought that maybe a thread devoted to things that made us laugh would be a good thing for 2009. It's been a bit tense economically.
Here's my contribution:
I found out that in the past, the nature center giftshop I help manage had an unusual security practice. Their safe had been stolen in a break-in, so at night they put the cash drawer....in the Fox Snake Cage.
She's a little over 3 feet long, so it probably was an effective theft deterrent. One thing the MN page doesn't mention is that fox snakes get their name in part from the musky anal gland secretion they use defensively.
So why did they quit doing this (aside from it not being a SOP for dealing with cash)?
