Is It Summer?

Snake Handlers

We all know about Pentecostals that handle poisonous snakes as a part of their religious services; in fact we recall a PBS airing not too long ago about the practice wherein a grizzled old pastor proudly showed off his multiple injuries suffered when the "handled" snakes did not take kindly to his ministrations. Gnarly, it was.

But this picture says that Pentecostals got nothing on the good folks in other parts of the world (I hope)…He isn’t handling snakes, he’s breathing snakes. It’s way too much to contemplate.
