Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic by now you've probably recovered enough from Saint Patrick's Day to hear the truth. Saint Patrick did not drive snakes out of Ireland there were never any stakes in Ireland. Drive out you see. The weather is too cold for snakes and the water. They would have to swim through to get to Ireland's to Coal Ireland. Is the last place a snake would go on vacation. The Mediterranean would be nice. But that doesn't mean I won't take advantage of folklore therefore we're going to talk about eating snake now the first comet you'll have formulas hey stupid. Don't you know? Some snakes are poisonous. Then I'll give you a wicked little grin and tell you that you're wrong. This will annoy you but hear me out. Snakes her not poisonous their venomous. So chomping down on a snake won't hurt you but when it whips around and bite you best know where the nearest hospital is. It's the venom that's dangerous when it's injected into the skin. Heck you could swallow venom all day and it won't hurt you unless you have a cut in your mouth your best course of action before you get ready to have a delicious plate of Cobra stick cut its head off. A chance of being injected with venom has now dropped dramatically. Unless you pick up the head snakeheads have been known to reflexively by up to ninety minutes after being severed when you cut the head off. Let it fall into a bucket. Then stay away from it until the next morning and be careful not to prick your finger on a Fang now. There's this guy who likes to kill his snake biting its head off. It seems to me that he has some serious male insecurity issues. But I'll put a link to the video in the show notes. China consumes the greatest number of snakes. The most favored dishes snake soup. And it's considered a delicacy in the Cantonese region. It contains the meat of at least two types of snakes. The soup tastes slightly. Sweet because the addition of Chrysanthemum leaves and spices more. Modern recipes include pepper vinegar and thin wafers of fried dough to enrich flavour and texture. A bowl cost you around eight bucks and you should plan on getting a bowl soon as those who make the soup aren't finding many people who want to learn how to do it because it requires the handling of venomous snakes. If you're in Hong Kong look for the restaurant Snake King Law on Hillier Street. It's been making the stuff for more than one. Hundred Years Water. Snakes pythons typical stars of Snake Soup but Chinese Cobra banded crate Indochinese rat. Snakes try rope beauty snake and the hundred pace viper as popular as well in the. Us rattlesnake is most popular variety but with the proliferation of Pythons in Florida. You're likely to see that on the menu as well. Three and a half hours of snake meat will cost you ninety three calories which is half the calories in one third of the fat that are in a Sirloin steak. Those figures can vary depending upon the type of snake. Snakes like other animals may contain parasites and other infections that could be transmitted to humans they can be neutralized by proper handling freezing and thorough cooking as for the taste. And you probably already know the answer this. It tastes like chicken although some say frog legs or a better comparison rattlesnake in the US often battered and fried the New York Times called Desert Whitefish. The writer said it's tough full of little bones and not much meat. So it'd be no snake stakes for you. Now we're going to travel to be at Phnom where you can enjoy a live Cobra heart. When you're in Saigon grab a table at the jungle barbecue guavas weasel porcupine in other tasty treats when you arrive they take you to the back where you can select your very own snake after your appetizer. The snake will be brought to your table by two servers. Bearing large knives and a half full bottle of rice vodka since the snake is still alive to head comes off I. The Venom is drained into the bottle. Then the blood from the rest of the body is added. The Heart's still beating is placed on a saucer and offered to the most important person at the table. Censure from out of town the offer may well be yours proper manners dictate that you then drop the heart into the glass of blood and venom and down the hatchet goes. If you're quick enough you may even feel the beating heart. Go down your throat by now. No doubt your stomach rumbling. And you're ready for a snake. Snack in Nashville. The closest you'll come. Who'll be the snake bite at the
