That said, the only time I will be pimping those is if the snake had attacked me so I can make an example out of it and have a cool story to tell.
That reminds me, when I was 18 I went longlining in the Barents sea for the summer holidays. Two days into what would be a seven week stint a large wolf-fish ripped a huge chunk off my steel toe wellingtons. After the initial shock (those fish got TEETH) I stamped it to death, filetet it, and brought it home with me. It was delicious.
