First off I would like to thank everyone who takes time out of their busy schedule to read my blog posts. I have fun writing them and I’m glad that other people enjoy them. And for those of you who don’t take time out of your busy schedule to read my blog… by merit of reading this you just joined the other group. Congratulations! You will be spared.
Secondly, I’ve changed the layout of my blog a lot. I’ve got a new theme, and fancy new side bars where you can like me on facebook and subscribe via email if you so wish. And you do wish to. I can tell. Do it. Now.
Second off, here’s the actual post:
The Frozen Pinkys
We have a science lady at camp named Kara who runs the Science club and other science related activities. That’s why I called her a science lady. Kara has honduran milk snake that she keeps in a terrarium in the room and is, or course, either of infinite fascination to the campers or a creature from the stygian depths of their darkest nightmares. Incidentally, these are the only two opinions people ever have of snakes: they either love snakes or they hate them. No one ever says “Snakes? Those things are boring.” I think those people died out thousands of years ago, because snakes above all things hate to be ignored.
Honduran milk snakes, though they look kind of like the dreaded coral snake, are not venomous and are apparently quite good with kids. More’s the pity, I say. I think a good ol’ venomous bite from a reptile is just the sort of thing some of these kids need to set them on the straight and narrow. It’s good for your character.
Anyway, snakes, like all living things, need to eat stuff. “And what is it snakes eat?” you’re probably asking yourself. Well, stop interrupting, I was about to tell you. Snakes eat frozen pinkys. If you are anything like me, when you hear the word pinky you either think of your smallest finger on your hand or the lovable cartoon mouse from the classic 90’s show Pinky and the Brain. That pinky looks like this:
The frozen pinkys look like this:
Can you spot the difference? It’s easy: the frozen pinkys are more pink. Hence the hillarious name. Oh… and they look like unborn fetuses. But don’t worry, you don’t actually have to touch frozen pinkys. They come in handy little cigarette style boxes designed for easy dumping, though the mere knowledge of their existence will weigh heavily on your soul for years to come if you were to ever come into contact with them. I’m told, however, that snakes love the things; they think they’re popcorn chicken or something.
Possibly the most disturbingly obvious part of frozen pinkies is that you must keep them frozen. This wouldn’t present in problem in a zoo or the Slytherin common room, where I’m sure there are literally tons of the things secreted in special frozen pinky freezers. But where do regular, non zoo keeper/dark wizard people like Kevin James and Kara keep their pinkys? The answer: a normal freezer, right beside the popsicles. Sometimes even lying horribly in wait among the popsicles! A tasty surprise indeed.
There is something fundamentally wrong about keeping frozen pinkys in the same place that you keep normal food. I wonder how many frozen pinky owners have inadvertently had a late night snack of frozen pinkys instead of the klondike bars they were oh so hungrily reaching for?
Judging from his face, it looks like the answer is at least one.
