A limerick a week #252

An uncivil serpent

There was a widely reported story this week of a 65 year old Austrian gentleman who sat on his loo only to have his naughty bits ‘nipped’ by a albino reticulated python. The snake had apparently escaped from his neighbour’s reptile collection.

Crushed nuts, sir?

Pythons aren’t venemous, they constrict their prey, so perhaps the chap was lucky that anything that dangled was only nipped and not crushed!

‘Tis surprising the fate that befalls
An unwary chap in the ‘stalls’
‘Cos what can he do
If he sits down to poo
And a snake sinks its fangs in his b***s?
