Slithering slizzards! A Texas man looking to get his drink discovered a dead reptile in his pack of brews instead.
A Houston man was stunned when an 18 pack of Bud Light he purchased for a party last week held an additional item — a frosty, cold dead snake.
At first, Marcus Forson thought he was the victim of a clever prank by his wife.
“I thought she was playing a joke on me and she had it inside the box,” Forson told local station KTRK. “Like a rubber snake.”
But upon closer examination, including a generous whiff of the dead snake’s pungent stench, it became clear that the stowaway reptile was the real deal.
“There’s no way I was going to drink the beer. It stunk bad,” Forson explained. “The snake was dead. The snake was ice cold. It’s kind of shrunk up and the eyes are missing out of it.”
Forson scooped the snake out into a bag and showed it to party guests. It became a talking point and he apparently relished telling others about his slithery find.
“Luckily, it didn’t come out of the box and bite anybody,” Forson said. “But it was dead, so we basically — it was entertaining. We had a good time.”
Forson said he told Anheuser-Busch, the producers of Bud Light, about the incident. The company apologized and reimbursed Forson, who holds no hard feelings against those behind his favorite beer.
How disgusting… Wonder how often something like this happens in Texas and other places snakes like to slither?
