The Year of the Snake has proved unlucky for one woman in northern China who received hospital treatment after opening a bottle of wine containing a snake that suddenly jumped out and bit her hand.
The surprise attack occurred after the woman surnamed Liu from Shuangcheng, Heilongjiang Province decided to add more alcohol to the bottle when the snake, which she had bought live in June and since kept pickled in spirits, pulled a Jesus and sprung to life, dbw.cn reported on September 3.
Liu received treatment at a local hospital for inflammation, explaining she drank snake wine regularly to cure her rheumatism. Alcohols containing preserved snakes boasting medicinal properties are common in China.
A similar case involving a serpent resurrection occurred in 2009 when a Hubei Province resident surnamed Zhang was bit two months after he attempted a similar brew. Zhang was not severely injured, unlike a villager from Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in April 2001 who died a day after being bitten from a preserved wine snake.
Who woulda thunk it.......
A Sunday school teacher was trying teach the evils of alcohol.
She dropped a worm into a glass of water, and it wiggled through the water.
She then dropped another worm into a glass of alcohol, and it dropped to the bottom, dead.
She asked the class what they learned. Little Johnny piped up, “If you drink alcohol, you won’t have worms.”
A lot of alcoholics are snake bit. This article proves it.
A moose bit my sister.

What did she expect? She snake was drunk!
Truth in advertising PING!
