The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
reports that a man, Doug Hatchett, was bitten by a rattlesnake at Wal-Mart while shopping for shoes. The rattler was lurking behind some boxes on the shoe rack for some reason.
Did the man run screaming from the store? Did he faint? Did he dial 911? Did he call his attorney to initiate a lawsuit? Did he blame it on President Bush?
No, Doug did what any red-blooded Texan would do. He stomped the snake to death. Terrorists and potential terrorists should take note of this.
Doug was treated and released.
Other kinds of snakes will probably be calling him today to discuss possible lawsuits against Wal-mart.
