Ode To The Rattleheadedcoppermoccasin! Union Groovin' To Saxapahaw!

June 30th Tarwheels Union Groovin' To Saxapahaw bike ride!

And if you act today, in this package deal, at absolutely no extra charge:

Unbelievable!

All four of these sleep inducers for the price of one!

And they say there's no free lunch!

(WARNING- DO NOT VIEW THIS HUBPAGE FOR AT LEAST THREE HOURS PRYOR TO DRIVING, OPERATING HEAVY EQUIPMENT, etc.)

The Rattleheadedcoppermoccasin!

Be careful as you walk in those woods.

Be careful as you walk,

In those hills of Carolina.

There’s the deadliest thing of deadly things,

From here all the way to China!

There’s a hybrid snake,

That will kill you dead!

It can just look at you,

And before a word is said-

You might as well look,

For a place to lie down,

Cause you’ll soon be looking,

Up from the ground.

There was a crazy old man,

And he was quite senile,

Got a bunch of reptiles together,

These nasty critters were vile!

He was out in his garden one day,

And saw an Adder fonda’ an Anaconda!

When he saw that thing that was the offspring,

He called it the Adderconda!

So, he matched a Cottonmouth to a lizard.

And it could run 30 miles an hour.

Everything that got in its way,

That snake would soon devour.

He matched a mongoose with a Mamba.

Thought he’d call it a Mambagoose

But it wound up eating itself,

Just as soon as he turned it loose.

Seemed like he wasn’t trying,

To create a snake that was kinder,

As he tried another experiment,

Mating a Hognose with a Sidewinder!

I’ve seen that Hogwinder chase,

A couple of alligators up a tree.

You should see that thing on youtube.

Just between you and me- I think they gave it some LSD!

As the old man and his love were dancing,

I believe it was the samba,

It was then he thought, “I’ll try to mate,

A Cottonmouth with a Mamba.”

The CottonmouthMamba,

Really loved the water,

But it never could be as mean,

As the old fool thought it oughta!

So he mixed all these together,

And in this brew he threw.

A Rattlesnake and a Copperhead,

To see what they would do!

And just for good measure,

He threw in the piranha’s DNA.

But still the concoction,

Seemed to be, well, just okay.

So he added genes from a politician,

And Lord, wouldn’t you know?

This stew turned out to be,

The meanest, deadliest, lyingest so and so!

This thing can talk,

But lies are all that’s said.

It’s a snake with two hind-feet,

And a rattle in its head!

Now if you see one of these,

Get on your knees.

It’s probably way too late.

You might as well accept your fate!

If you even look him in the eye,

You’re most likely gonna’ die,

Before you can tell,

You can die of its smell!

It can kill you with its breath,

Or- it may even take its time and just hate you plumb to death!

The ride started out easy enough. We were chatting it up.

It's always nice to see a pretty girl with a pretty hat!

We enjoy each others company for at least minutes.

We're enjoying the fresh air! Ahh! Life is good.

Then- right past the beginning- the pace quickens up the first hill.

But the view is spectacular!

Well, the pace quickens again!

Then the pace just "sickens"!

I'm only taking 16 pictures on this ride because of people like Tom here and the young fellow behind him!

Then- there's all these guys and everyone of them is in a hurry.

Everybody is using the same strategy from the same Wednesday playbook!

Jeff is considering his next attack!

Go very hard and attack often- especially if Micky Dee takes that camera out!

Cy takes his turn to turn the screw!

Cy tries to twist the knife while it's in!

Tom's pace screwed this picture up! Thanks Tom!

Well - this is the end of the line. Cy and I split from the Tarwheel Union Groovers and ride off into the sunset toward Hillsborough and a nap!

And as you were promised- two pictures of two squirrels!

Don't ever say I never gave you anything!

Hi, I was thinking, why not take the snakes and the squirells with ya? you could rap the snake around your neck so he could get a good view, and the squirrels could carry the camera! lol very entertaining as usual, loved the pictures and the poem. made me smile as always, cheers nell

Hi Nell! Those things are just undependable. They would be in the spokes! There was a 4th of July Ride and the pack was zipping through a wooded area and a squirrel ran out, was kicked up by a rotating pedal up onto the chest of a following rider! All of the participants lived through it.

I enjoyed this. You have a very vivid imagination, you come up with so many ideas.

That must have been a shock for both squirrel and rider to be kicked up like that. I am glad it had a happy end.

Thanks.

Thank you Hummingbird! I imagine some "depends" were needed for both!

Hi Nellieanna! Snakes really are really creepy for most of us. I have a bigger aversion to rats.

Hi Lorlie! My butt is rarely seen. I'm always taking the pictures. I believe the butt in question is Cy's. My shorts make my butt look big!

Snakes and me don't slither in the same direction. They creep me out just like spiders do. I remember once down in New Mexico I came out of a store and there was this big old mean looking snake sunning itself wrapped around my front steering tire. I got in my car very gingerly and drove off pretty dam fast. The snake became embedded in my rubber as I squealed away. Thanks for the share Micky, it was very snaky of you to hiss at us:0)))

Yo Saddle Rider! I have a lot of respect for them. Rats- I've been more concerned with those critters. But yeah- snakes are snakes!

Great hub the snakes crosses were hilarious - perhaps that explains all these politicians that have stuffed everything up so and managed to slither their way around.

Hi Ralwus! Thank you Sir!. I know you have some great musings over at your place. See you soon.

Thank you LadyJane! God bless you Dear!

Yo Brother Rossi- you know I love you Man!

Sa'ge, Sa'ge, Sa'ge!

It's you that's all the rage!

If I had the means to go,

I'd be with you having espresso!

I wish they swap places,

Maybe Georgia with Hawaii,

Then we could see each other faces.

And Florida would be the sea.

Then we'd go to Aruba,

Or maybe see Castro- in Cuba!

Thank you Katie! There are a lot of roadkill snakes right now.

DevinCo! Thank you for tuning in! Hurry back now!

Hi Freya! You are such a delight! Thanks for coming by!
