Imagine that Styx oldie being covered with a LOT of sibilance… This just in, from NPR:
The snake’s Twitter page is suspiciously quiet. He last checked in from the Yankees game a couple hours ago.
But MyFoxNY.com claims to have been told by a source that officials from the Wildlife Conservation Society are going to announce soon that the “Bronx Zoo cobra” has been recovered.
And NBC News says it’s been told “the snake is now in quarantine” and that a 4 p.m. ET news conference is planned.
If you’re not up to ssspeed on this story, you could start here.
Thus ends the best new Twitter feed of the week…
Check this out, too: Combining TWO viral phenomena of the last few days, here’s video in which “Twin Babies Talk About The Bronx Zoo Cobra“…
Oh, and in case you among the few on the planet who missed the original “talking twins” video, here ya go…
@BronxZoosCobra had some interesting tweets:
“Got a bagel at H & H Bagels on upper west side. When I ordered I said, “I’ll have the snakes on a PLAIN.” He did not laugh. Tough crowd.”
“Good morning! I’m up and bright eyed and bushy…well, I’m tailed.”
“Does anyone know if the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle sells organic mice?”
“Getting my morning coffee at the Mudtruck. Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had my morning coffee. Seriously, don’t. I’m venomous.”
“Do you have a place to stay in NYC tonight? We can offer you the Penthouse ssssuite.”
