    I ain't arguing with a 16 foot python. He can go wherever he wants.

    Why not? He was just doing what his genes told him to do.

    This quote should have been a warning to the family:

    Also, this is a good reason not to go to Australia. 16-foot snakes hanging out in your backyard? Fuck that. I freak out when I see a rattler.

    I had a dog, a mutt, that was carzy for chasing rabbit, squirrels, etc. I got it while I was in college.
    I came home to visit my family for spring break. Of course, I had the dog with me.
    On Easter Sunday, of all days, my dog caught a rabbit in my parents' backyard. The dog tore it apart.
    My sisters kids come running in from the backyard crying. 'Uncle Buck's dog killed the Easter Bunny! Coal killed the Easter Bunny!'
    I walked out there, and there's fur all over the place. The dog's got blood smeared on her muzzle, wagging her tail and very pleased with herself.
    It was hysterical.

    (By the way, I offer this anecdote because the snake ate the dog in front of the kids, which brought my story to my mind, and because somebody pointed out that the snake was just doing what nature intended, which was all my dog was doing.)

    If I move a couple of hours north I'll be OK.
    That said, this quote freaked me out:

    Although I am an Uncle Buck, I am not that Uncle Buck.

    The snake eating the dog is divine retribution for the people having a chihauha/terrier mix. That dog must have been annoying as hell.

    I was gonna say that, but I didn't want to speak ill of the digested.
