And Now For Something Completely Different

We return to our usual chirpy content today, in a gesture towards our friend’s unquenchable spirit.

A few weeks ago, we took the boys to the zoo and made a tour through the reptile house. It’s a testament to the vivid writings of J.K. Rowling that I can’t look at a big snake in its exhibit without immediately thinking about Harry Potter dissolving the glass with magic and the snake hissing “Thankssss” in parseltongue.

In the next window over, I saw a pair of snake skin boots, a rhino horn and assorted other items. A gift shop? I know that entertainment parks are trying to bring in more money, but that’s pretty tacky. Then I read the sign. Oops, it was a collection of confiscated contraband and a stern admonishment against buying products made from endangered animals.

Did the sign say "Thanksssssss for not buying"?
