So after 5 days they found that Egyptian Cobra which has been lost at the Bronx Zoo scaring the bejesus out of anybody who thought that going out there in the winter-chill of the spring of 2011 was a good idea to start with. The last time a snake went missing that long in the Bronx, A-Rod's wife asked for a divorce. So on the day the baseball season opened in 40 degree weather, the Bronx Zoo is now safe again for the thousands of visitors to ooh and awe at wild animals stuck in captivity.
This is the craziness that is our media-cycle. At 4:21pm on Thursday afternoon cnn.com, nydailynews.com and the nypost.com all have this on their breaking-news scroll. We're talking about a 20 inch snake in an enclosed reptile house at it gets more airtime than the protests in Bahrain is getting on most airwaves. I even read somewhere that this stupid reptile had 200,000 followers on Facebook, this is where we have it all wrong; all the talk in the elevator and by the water-cooler is about the 7 people who won the lottery and a 20 inch reptile. So here's a concept for you, have the winners of the lottery compete in a dancing with the stars episode with the losers getting thrown into that Bronx Zoo reptile house
Call me when a lion escapes and I'll be really excited.
