A suggestion for lunch…

March 9th, 2009 by Mike Nelson · 48 Comments

**Update: A little bit of closing the door after the cows have got out, but there is a slight language warning on this making it not entirely safe for work. (My apologies if you’ve been fired from your job and have to subsist on rattlesnake.)

    I’m not sure I want to eat a “pissed off sonbitch” who wants to shit on me.

    The snake doesn’t look to appetizing either. Hyuk, hyuk, hyuk.

    I’ll be quiet now.

    A heavily-tattooed man wearing a Confederate flag do-rag fishing a snake out of a cooler. Man, I miss the States.

  • 3 Ben on Mar 9, 2009 at 10:43 am

    I think I was sold as soon as I saw the Confederate flag do rag. The corrugated tin shed was just a bonus.

    My next new T-shirt: “Better to Get Shit On Than Bit”.

    Like in the old MST3K short, “Catching Trouble”

    I’m cheering for the snake.

    When I used to live in North Carolina, at Christmas time, the local mall had a baseball hat with a Confederate flag that was illuminated with LEDs. Not buying that hat was one of my most regrettable moments in life.

    The really sad thing about this exercise is that I’m now pretty much convinced that 95% of all current musical acts employ it to name and design their album covers.

  • 8 zack on Mar 9, 2009 at 11:35 am

    Me too.

  • 9 jfe on Mar 9, 2009 at 11:35 am

    Whether he shits or spits, he’ll still taste like chicken! Or so they say.

  • 10 zack on Mar 9, 2009 at 11:38 am

    “You can’t get no better.”

    Actually, I think you can.

  • 11 Kris on Mar 9, 2009 at 11:53 am

    Yeah, some idiot posted this in the wrong place. What an idiot.

  • 12 Conor Lastowka on Mar 9, 2009 at 11:55 am

    I believe the gentleman in the video was quoting from his own E-Harmony profile there.

  • 13 AJ on Mar 9, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    Did anyone else want to snake to shit on him AND bite him? Because I sure did.

  • 14 mathey on Mar 9, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    Thanks for sharing your home movies, Mike!

  • 15 Nick Fechter on Mar 9, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    Looks like their already looking for replacements for Steve Irwin.

  • 16 Vic Arpeggio on Mar 9, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    This unfortunately is the gateway link to Mike’s April experiment: eating nothing but rattlesnake for a full month.

  • 17 Remmie Barrow on Mar 9, 2009 at 1:38 pm

    I bet that snake is thinking…”Rednecks….Why did it have to be Rednecks?!!!!”

  • 18 randommanthefirst on Mar 9, 2009 at 2:23 pm

    You’re right. We should go beat this fool senseless. Are you in?

  • 19 randommanthefirst on Mar 9, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    It could have been worse; what about Bear Grylls?

  • 20 Dames Like Her on Mar 9, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    I didn’t think the already deep shame I feel for the actions of my species could increase.

  • 21 chrismartindeed on Mar 9, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    Wait a sec.

    Is this the same yokel who knocked his teeth out with a chainsaw in 2008?

  • 22 Kris on Mar 9, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    Sure. I think this moron is hiding though, so we’ll have to organize a reconnaissance mission. Maybe the guy in this video doubles as a bounty hunter….

  • 23 Matt on Mar 9, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    Hahaha, USA! USA! USA! Where our taste for rattlesnake meat is directly proportional to the size of our handlebar mustaches and braided ponytails.

  • 24 Queen Shadowrama on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    So when you say a suggestion for lunch, you mean for us to kill the rednecks and put them on the barbecue, right? Cause they deserve it.

  • 25 Matt on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Oh, and just say it with me: “Snake Steaks” I smell a promotion deal….oh no that’s just the critter I’m grillin on mah hot plate thats sittin on my old TV next to mah skinnin’ shed

  • 26 Remmie Barrow on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:08 pm

    Well, if that were to happen…the snake would probably wish for a quick death.

  • 27 Remmie Barrow on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    So,that leads me to my next question…What health benefits would you receive from eating rattlesnake for a month?

  • 28 Matt on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    Hahaha, Sssssssssssssnake Steaks….ok Im done

  • 29 jfe on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    By the way I can safely say that no one will be warning “watch out for snakes” with these guys.

  • 30 Dean on Mar 9, 2009 at 4:31 pm

    Mmm. Uh huh. Yes.

    Mike Nelson, I’m placing you under blogger’s arrest.

  • 31 Ed H on Mar 9, 2009 at 5:52 pm

    Isn’t anyone else thinkin…. snake belly = SNACON!!!!!??

  • 32 Houndstooth Mind on Mar 9, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    I was hoping Mike’d hire this guy in prep for yet another theme meat month.

  • 33 Earl Fando on Mar 9, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Well, for one thing, everyone will hear you before you arrive.

    …or are the rattles not edible?

  • 34 Earl Fando on Mar 9, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    I’d say Kris is safe, unless he’s a slow-moving pit viper with free bowels.

  • 35 rebisaz on Mar 9, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    I, uh… that’s.. well. Um.

  • 36 Dames Like Her on Mar 10, 2009 at 2:25 am

    Let’s throw them into a deluxe-sized cooler first. Sum bitches goin’ die anyways.

  • 37 Matt on Mar 10, 2009 at 7:53 am

    Snake-Umms……sorry, had to interject again…ok, off to internet addiction support group….

  • 38 Laura on Mar 10, 2009 at 10:07 am

    I picked up a rattle snake once. Sumbitch bit me so I bit ‘im back.

  • 39 Elizabeth Young on Mar 10, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    It’s nice to see Danny Bonaduce finally finding his place in the world.

  • 40 Sara on Mar 10, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Well I’ll be.
    That there snake was mighty big.
    Darn toot’n.

  • 41 ShutterBun on Mar 10, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    The South will writhe again!

  • 42 jonnyfrag on Mar 12, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    There is a joke about the economic crisis here, but then again..this was filmed 6 years ago. Some folks do this no matter how times are.

    BTW rattlesnake isn’t actually too bad. I would like to point out that I had it at a professional eatery, not some yahoo’s back yard.

    Lots of eating selections…but may induce vomiting.
