The Crazy Suburban Mom: Only in New York...

Only in New York...

If you don't live near New York you might not have heard the story of the Egyptian Cobra that got out of the snake enclosure at the Bronx Zoo.

There are so many bizarre parts to this story.  First, the snake that went missing is not just poisonous it's, well here's the thing - It's venom can kill an elephant in three hours and a person in about fifteen minutes.  

Second, it's a young snake and only 20 inches long but zoo officials are "confident the 20-inch-long snake is contained in a nonpublic, isolated area of the building."  Confident seems like such a large word  to use for something that small and deadly - but I know very little about snakes and unlimited cell phone data plans.

And the most bizarre twist is this:

The Bronx Zoo cobra has almost 200,000 Twitter followers....

I don't know what it is but it tweaks my funny bone something awful.
