Australia has a lot of weird stuff. Sometimes I'd go into my old backyard and my cat would just be chomping on a snake.. that's fine, right?
When I was much younger, we had snakes in the yard all the time... Since they've built
about five miles of suburbs between me and the nearest woods, not so many...
Summer before last, I was out in the yard and on of the cats was playing with something....
damned if it wasn't a little garter snake, maybe eight inches long... The first snake I'd seen
near here in years... The cat was pissed that I took it away from him, but it was pretty much
dead by then.
Also, haha! I think it would be pretty scary if Steve Irwin said that, because he'd sort of be a zombie, I guess.
I was going more for the disembodied voice from the great beyond...
...but maybe you hear the accent enough that it's not as funny to you.
