Python Boy

Cambodians flock to see 'python boy'

Reuters: “Cambodians are flocking to see a three-year-old boy they believe was the son of a dragon in a former life because his best friend is a four-meter-long python.

Curled up for an afternoon snooze inside the coils of his scaly companion, the child, Oeun Sambath, attracts regular visits in the impoverished southeast Asian nation from villagers anxious to make use of what they believe are his supernatural powers.”

Hmmm... What can we do to get BDFL appear in OSCON wearing a baby Python around his neck? That should show that Python is easier than Perl - do you seriously think Larry Wall can top that by lifting a camel? :-)

  1. Do you remember in the 80s, in Kerala there used to be this "Sarpa Yagnam" where one guy used to stay in a box full of snakes..reminded me of that.

  2. Oh yes - "pAmbu Velayudhan" was the rage for almost a year :-) That was - supposedly - with all sorts of poisonous snakes.
