Shoulda got some pics though...
I keep a snake in my basement shop, better than a cat for controlling mice. One evening when I was working down there the kids asked if they could feed it. I told them yes, but just one small meat ball and water. While I was working they fed it. I looked over and the snake was going crazy, rolling and tossing like crazy. I ask the kids what the **** did to it. They admitted they put some of my gasoline in the meatball. Holy crap for about 5 minutes it convulsed and then just curled up in a coil and stopped.
