The Snake That Invented The Wheel
The Hoopsnake is a legendary beast known in the Americas, Australia and Canada. Quite simply this beast appears to be a reasonably normal if not slightly rotund snake, with a small poisonous barb at the tip of it’s tail.
What makes it incredibly unique is the way it pursues it’s victims. First grabbing it’s tail in it’s mouth then forming a loose loop, the snake can then roll, bouncing wagon wheel style across varied terrain, ending it’s assault by releasing its mouth and hurling itself tail first and spearlike at it’s victim.
There are two rumored ways to escape said assault. First by running through the hoop as the snake rolls, as this disorients said snake for long enough to escape. Or the more accepted theory of jumping behind a bush or tree right before the snake lunges causing the lil guy to spear himself into the wood. (side note here, supposedly the snake is so venomous that this will sadly kill the tree as well)
Our judge this week, is Bill Daniels, drummer for Witchbanger, before that, Buried at Sea, before that Wickerman, etc etc… proud father, garbage man and teller of tales, often tall, sometimes appropriately sized and on rare occasions even short an too the point! We love him and wish him a happy birthday this week!
