Of course, the tame imperialist media presents the story in a different light:
A Wal-Mart customer is recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake in a garden department of the store chain. Mica Craig said the reptile pounced as he was shopping at the store in the north-western US state of Washington.But the truth will always out:
The 47-year-old stamped on the serpent and was later treated at hospital with anti-venom, after his hand suffered serious swelling.Mr Craig, of course, is in a fighting mood (watch the clip in that article, and Walmart better line up a good lawyer or three.
I suggest PETA should look into the case. Taking the life of an innocent animal like this - what a shame! I think the killer made a few slips talking to the media, like:
Mr Craig said the serpent attacked as he reached down to brush away what he thought was a stick from a bag of mulch.Uhu... I bet... have you ever seen a rattler looking like a stick? And this:
The purchase was intended for his marijuana plants, which Mr Craig said he was licensed to grow for medical reasons.Sure. Of course. But PETA, I am confident, will win this fight, and in the future we shall know it as the Clarkston Walmart Massacre.
