Every so often in this job, you get a story that’s just weird and fun.  It’s nice to be reminded that being a journalist is not all racist diatribes and people taking advantage of other people and political poo slinging.

Recently, in otherwise generally quiet Lamar County, Texas, some snakes got into the power supply. The whole thing sounded like a video game to me, and well, I couldn’t resist doing a short reader on it.

Turns out some other stations around Texas (and the Texas Standard) picked up my story, which is always a blast.

In any event, have a listen to my sssssssstory here …. or just play the clip below.
