Stupid Lede.

Giant child-eating snake seized

This was the title of an article in the Herald-Sun. Please tell me, when in Oz history has a snake eaten a child. Child-eating snake, MY ARSE. In my time, I have known 3 guys with large constrictors (don't giggle, you bloody adolescents) and they never ate any kids. I will admit that Oz does have the most dangerous snakes in the world i.e. the Inland Taipan (Fierce Snake) or the Tiger Snake or the Death Adder. Hell, Australia has a plethora of killer snakes, but we don't have child eating constrictors (we do have teh big pythons up-north but they don't eat kids). This is the type of bullshit article that gets the rubes believing anything they are told. e.g. John Howard has the best interests of the Australian people in mind.
