Another headline I couldn't resist

Blind snake rediscovered after 100 years
A rare blind snake has been rediscovered a century after its last sighting. The snake, which looks like a long, skinny pink worm, was only known from two other specimens, both discovered in 1905.

“They’re really rare because they’re subterranean,” said blind-snake expert Van Wallach of Harvard University who described the new specimen. “You can’t just go out anytime you want and collect these things. You can dig forever and never find them.”
It turns out that a UMKC biologist has discovered another specimen of this blind, pink snake which hasn't seen the light of day in 100 years in Larry Moore's pants.

  1. Ah yes, the rare one-eyed albino trouser-asp.

    Rarely found because no one is really looking for it.


Your turn to riff...
