Dino Drac’s Advent Calendar: 12/9/12.

Yesterday, you may have seen a post about how I was canceling the site’s Christmas season due to time-and-other constraints.

As you can see, that post is no longer here. And we have a solid argument from Dino Drac to thank.

“I know you’re busy, but I just got a giant python. You sure you want to waste that?”

Turns out, I don’t.

Dino Drac, you should be a salesman. I see you going door to door with a briefcase full of chocolate bars. You’ll lie about how the proceeds go to some made up charity. Deep down, nobody will believe you, but show me the man who will cast stones at a briefcase-carrying tyrannosaurus. We’ll be rich.

Anyway, the snake.

It is LARGE. It’s hard to tell when the thing is all curvy, but if stretched into a straight line, we’d see that this python is easily a six-footer.

“It’s squirming all over the place. How am I supposed to contain it?”

Good question, Dino Drac. Maybe you aren’t. It’s better to give than to receive, right? Well, now you can grant freedom to a giant snake. Later, when it’s out in the forest with an adolescent mongoose halfway down its throat, it will remember you fondly.

“I think I’d rather keep it in a box.”

Yeah. That’s why you’re a more fitting mascot for the site’s Halloween season.
