Python Filets

I’m down for some snake.

Wildlife officials in Florida are trying a new way to combat the spread of pythons in the state by convincing the public they’re a delicacy.

In an effort to combat the booming population of the invasive species, believed to have started when people released pets into the wild, the state is trying to encourage more hunting, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Some citizens have begun killing and using the snakes in cooking, comparing the taste to a pork chop, according to the Sun-Sentinel. A seven-and-a-half-foot snake can provide up to four pounds of meat in a five-foot long filet.

    I might be willing to try it.

    Heh, “Next time you are having a football party, forget the 10 foot long sub sandwich, get a smoked or barbecued Python on a bun to whatever length we have in stock.  At Pick N Save, we’re talking fre-e-s-s-s-h!”

  3. Merlin

    How about you try it first and we sit back and wait for the results?

    I’ve had BBQ’d python in FL, not bad. I’d eat it again if give the opportunity.

  5. Owen

    Mmmm… BBQ sounds good. I was thinking grilled like a fish with lemon and capers or something. I imagine it’s a very lean meat that needs some fat or oil added.

    Let’s see some evidence, sociopath, you actually are python.
    Show your work.

  7. Mar

    Ate python, should be.

  8. Mar

    From the article:”One issue that has developed with eating the snakes is the presence of mercury, according to the outlet.”
    I guess explains the sociopath’s behavior of late.

  9. Le Roi du Nord


    I didn’t take a picture of me eating it, but I did.  And there is nothing, absolutely nothing , you can prove to the contrary.

    Do you think before you type, or does your nonsense just ooze out of your pores?

    And I’m not worried yet about the LD50 of mercury.

    “I didn’t take a picture of me eating it, but I did.  And there is nothing, absolutely nothing , you can prove to the contrary”
    Actually, your history of lying about almost every subject and being wrong so many times, shows again, you cannot be trusted.
    Your word means nothing.
    Still waiting for the apology for lying about me last week or the week before.

  11. Le Roi du Nord


    I never made any claims about you being a smart fella, so it wasn’t me that lied.

  12. Mar

    Never said that was a lie, Bozo. I’m not claiming to be the smartest person around, unlike you, who claims to be very smart but has been proven to be quite stupid
    Now, try again, liar.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    Where is your proof?  Or are you just making that up, too?

  14. Mar

    “Where is your proof?  Or are you just making that up, too?”
    Yep, that between the mercury poisoning and senility, your brain is fried.

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    So mar, you are claiming that a one time event, something that you weren’t present for, have no knowledge of, nor any experience with, didn’t happen, correct?  And on what basis do you make that claim?

    You sound just as ridiculous as trump, rudy, and cast of sycophants trying to overturn an election.

  16. Mar

    As I said before, your word means nothing.
    You’re like a little kid who wants to be noticed and tells “look at me, look at me, look at what I did!!”.
    Sorry bud, you’ve done that too many times.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry mar, you are mistaking me for trump, a shameless self-promoter, chronic liar, and raving narcissist.  Even you should know that.  You disappoint again.

  18. Mar

    Why, you just described yourself, sociopath.
    Except President Trump is more successful, smarter, richer, isn’t an elitist, more educated than you and better looking.
    And his dog likes him.

  19. Le Roi du Nord

    Successful you say?  I have never been bankrupt, nor been given $millions$ by my old man.

    Smarter?  I know that the Brits didn’t have airports in the 1780’s, that wind turbines  don’t cause cancer, and that Biden/Harris won the 2020 election.

    Elitist?  As defined by who?  Certainly no someone like you.

    More educated?  Who can tell, trump won’t release his transcripts.  I’ll take my degrees in hard sciences to whatever trump bought.

    Better looking?  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  If overweight, make-up wearing guys with bizzarro hairdos turn you on, go for it.  I’m still within a couple pounds of my college playing weight.  You?

    trump doesn’t have a dog (smart folks know that, you don’t)  I do have a dog and he does love me.

    You are 0 for 6 there, mar.  Keep trying.

    Wow, such a big ego for yoursel.
    How many times were you elected President?
    How many skyscrapers have you built?
    How many employees have you ever employed?
    You never have shown you went to college.
    And Easter is not a national holiday, if you want to play that game.
    When it comes to lying you make President Trump look like Mother Theresa.
    If Trump looks so, bad, ok, but his wife, who is quite good looking, deals with it.
    Playing weight? Playing with yourself doesn’t count.
    Nice try though.
