My family used to have a cat that if we made our arm and hand into the form of a snake and said, “Here comes the pit viper!” she would go nots. Her solution was never to go find another pit viper to fight her battle for her. Smart cat.
HOBO: If one day a pit viper bit you in your backyard, would you release more pit vipers into your yard hoping one might bite another before it bit you?
KLOWNUS: No, I would strip down nude and cover myself in mud, because pit vipers detect heat.
HOBO: Also a valid solution.
