Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

It’s time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.
(November 1997, Pennsylvania) Wayne Roth, 38, of Pittston, was bitten by a cobra belonging to his friend, Roger Croteau, after playfully reaching into the tank and picking up the snake. Wayne subsequently refused to go to a hospital, telling Roger, "I'm a man, I can handle it."
Falser words have seldom been spoken. Instead of a hospital, Wayne reported to a bar. He had three drinks, and enjoyed bragging that he had just been bitten by a cobra. Cobra venom is a slow-acting central nervous system toxin. He died within a few hours, in Jenkins Township, Pennsylvania.

Sounds like a reaction your cousin would have..."I'm a man. I can handle it. You're a wussy!" Hee hee!

Jim got referred to a neurologist for his fainting spells, and Evelyn has the staple removed from her head on Friday. Jimmy is always telling her how much he loves her now, which he should, because that's one rough "boo boo" he gave her noggin.
