Snake man inserts live snake up nose and out of mouth

This is ‘Snake Manu’, an Indian man who makes a living from this eye-watering trick of inserting live grass snakes into his nostrils and pulling them out of his mouth.

Rest of article here.

Dear Mr. Snake Man,

While I applaud the unique nature of your talents and can’t begrudge your ability to feed a family of four by putting strange things up your nose, please be sure to make it clear to your audience that you are not a black man. Things are on the upswing for us right now and we’d prefer not to be associated with snakes up noses or your braids at this time. Thank you very much for your cooperation in this matter,

    We can do this bad all by ourselves.

    We’ve waited so long to erase these types of images from the forefront of our minds.

    zOMG, I saw that on the After School Special in 1986. It scared the black off my skin then, and it does now.

    I really was not prepared for this type of visual.

    Why? Oh never mind I really do not want to know!

    Please stop by my blog. I have something there for you.
