Holding very still in the snake exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. This is gonna be hilarious

Indeed.

Asked how the snake was faring in the cold, the user behind the Twitter account said: “Hiding in passerbys’ scarves has been working for me so far, but I’m thinking about heading to a sauna to warm up for a bit.”

I’m not a fan of Les Twits. But using it to make N.Y.C. leap sideways at the sight of power cables, bath robe ties and the cat’s tail sticking out from under the sofa is nothing short of brilliant.

It’s getting pretty cold out. I think it’s probably time to crash. Oh look, an apartment window someone left open just a crack. Perfect!

Pleasant dreams N.Y.C.

Hey, did you hear something slithery behind the desk?

HTP, you are one strange, twisted dude.  I like that about you.

I hadn’t seen that twitter feed before. Next to the one for Samuel Pepys, it’s probably the reason the twitter machine exists.

This is pretty funny stuff. I almost hope they don’t catch the cobra so the Tweets can keep coming.

Hey, did you hear something slithery behind the desk?

I did, but turned out it was only State Senator Carl Kruger.

He lives large in le snake pit extraordinaire, so the Cobra might want to look into a short term lease; I hear it’s going to be available soon.

that twitter feed is not actually funny or interesting, sounds corporate

Hey looky here, folks, it’s Dave, the Bronx Zoo’s Rattlesnake! Green is not a good color for you, Dave. Too python-y.

Getting my morning coffee at the Mudtruck. Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had my morning coffee. Seriously, don’t. I’m venomous.

How can you not love that? It would make a mongoose laugh.

Honey Badger Don’t Give a Shit What Dave Says. Because Honey Badger is a Crazy Nasty-Ass Cobra-Eating Creature.

Interesting theory.

Rival zoo? Snake countermeasures distributor? Act of God?

And then there’s the zookeeper’s point of view.

By God you’re right! Runaway underaged venomous snakes have a massive public appeal.

Let’s see, there’s me, Steve Irwin (R.I.P.), that cute dude whose last name rhymes with Irwin and that snake guy in Florida. Why, that’s THREE living people and one dead person who’d be willing to buy products associated with members of family Elapidae. Whatever they’re pushing is going to be bigger than the Jesus/Beatles reunion tour!

OK. Republicans might be [ahem] interested in the underaged runaway snake part but I think the venomous thing would put most of them off.

Too funny.  The BronxZookeeper feed is even funnier than the snake’s.

Oh, like you’ve never lost anything.

Bwahaha! I Great Big <3 New Yaawk!
