Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Anaconda orgies

I hate it when Army of Dad falls asleep with the TV on. I get stuck listening to shows like "Anaconda: Giant Snake of the Amazon" on the Discovery Channel. I'm blissfully working at the computer when I hear about "mating balls." Apparently, female anacondas will entertain several males at one time in a snake orgy called a mating ball, which can literally include tons of anacondas writhing around and getting it on. The mating ball can can last for weeks or months.

A full grown snake can swallow a child, the show just said. Up to 30 feet long and weighing nearly 500 pounds, the deadly Amazon anaconda is the world's largest and most powerful snake. In swamps and shallow streams, it coils around prey, causing total circulatory collapse in seconds.

Lovely. Just what I needed to listen to before I head off to bed. I hate snakes, too.

    Haha, I was watching that tonight to. Then I fell asleep due to my extreme tiredness. But woke up in time to watch the whole "Giant Squid" special they had, which was, amazing.

    And strangely, the anaconda is the largest member of the boa family, not a python as you would expect, since every other big snake is a python of some kind. Errr... you probably didn't care to know that.

    I listened to the squid show, too, now that you mention it. *rolling my eyes*

    Yes, Gadfly, we all know you're a dork like AoD.

    And, Kin, tsk, tsk, tsk. I expect that from you. And, well, ok, now that you mention it, I do like long thick throbbing things with the word orgy accompanying them. ;)
