Snakes On the Plain

Legend has it that St. Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland and into the sea using the power of his faith. - Fox News

A Dublin man is hoping for some of that power for himself after he reportedly fell victim of a venomous snakebite – believed to be the first time such an event has been recorded in Ireland.

Curious, as Ireland is indeed known to be free of these slithery critters. Of course the “Dublin man” who was bit owned a puff adder “most commonly found in Morocco and Western Arabia, the puff adder is known to cause the most snakebite fatalities in Africa.”

Let’s review: St. Patrick drives the snakes our of Ireland in the 5th century and the Emerald Isle remains snake free until the Irish begin to take in “persons in need of international protection” from areas known to be native to poisonous snakes. Hmmm. It’s either that or the fact that Ireland is becoming as Godless as the rest of the world.

Either way, there’s no doubt that snakes have been sighted in Ireland for quite awhile now.

Make no mistake: poisonous snakes are more dangerous than the Coronavirus.
