Tourists, (or 'Terrist's', as 'W' who always had a really, really bad artificially aquired Texan accent speech problem, as well as an often occurring brain fart impediment, called them), always fall for the 'Terrist's trap' put on display by the locals. Ha- Ha!!!!

There's somethng "shoppy" about the picture. Look at her RH pocket and how the snake image doesn't seem to blend properly. (Or lse that snake necks down at the rear into a small tail in an unusal way.)

For the caption though.

The New Hampshire diet. You can put as much food in your mouth as you want but you cannot swallow it, and it looks fashionable too!!

Yeah - worth taking a second or third look at - although it's hard to tell for sure

And GA! on your comeback.

Not saying its not shopped but one gender of boa plumps out before the tail... just can't remember which, I think its the female and has to do with egg storage/incubation. Hope you all don't think this is off topic.

No, I don't think the boa makes you look fat. But go try on the rattlesnake; the color might be better on you.

"It was a gift from my husband."

It was a gift from my son-in-law. He lives just south of Minot North Dakota.

Geee, I somehow wish this was my X trying to "off" herself by snake strangulation! LOL

Ditto with my X-mother-in-law, who is simply known around here as "Dragon Lady".
