The ‘Facial Profiling’ Of Jase Robertson
Posted on 08.16.13 by Danny Glover @ 11:13 pm

What happens when an enlightened redneck in full, shaggy beard stays in a fancy New York hotel? Let Jase Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” answer that question:

I asked where the bathroom was and he said, “Right this way, sir.” He was very nice. He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, “Good luck. Have a good day.”

At which point Robertson circled back into the hotel and had a good laugh — and a great anecdote for the Robertson family’s appearance on “Live with Kelly & Michael” the day after “Duck Dynasty’s” season premiere. The clueless bell hop clearly wasn’t among the record-setting 11 million people who watched.

Copperhead(less): Snake Bites Itself
Posted on 08.16.13 by Danny Glover @ 10:59 pm

As a boy who spent many a summer day in the country, I dreaded one thing while walking the woods and wading the creeks — stumbling upon a wild-eyed, blind snake during the dog days of August. I always heard that poisonous snakes, specifically copperheads and rattlesnakes in West Virginia, were more likely to strike targets that got too close that time of year because they couldn’t see.

That fear shaped my view of snakes to this day, a view perfectly captured in the words of a boyhood hunting and fishing companion: “The only good snake is a dead snake.”

The thing is, a dead snake isn’t necessarily a dead snake. And a copperhead minus its head is still a threat — even to its own writhing, headless corpse. Watch and learn:

The video sparked enough curiosity at National Geographic that a reporter asked a snake expert to explain what happened in the video. “Snakes have the capability of causing biting and injecting venom even after the head has been severed, even though it is dead,” he said. And why bite itself? “That’s what is available; that’s what is next to him.”

I learned something else while researching this post. Apparently “the dog days of August” are a bit of a myth. Snakes do have milky eyes and impaired vision when they shed skin to grow — I saw the milky eyes on a copperhead my uncle shot one summer — but that doesn’t necessarily happen during August or only one time a year.

But that insight doesn’t change my view of snakes. In fact, now that I know a dead viper is potentially as deadly as a live one, and a touch psycho to boot, I’ll be all the more determined to kill ‘em where they slither — and then head the other way.

I’m definitely more like Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame than I am his brother Jase:

Pitch Perfect Cups And One Direction Piano

These creative music videos found their way into my Facebook feed, and I enjoyed both of them immensely. I wish I had this kind of rhythm and musical talent:

The Day Government Goons Killed Giggles
Posted on 08.03.13 by Danny Glover @ 2:58 pm

The jack-booted wildlife thugs in Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources are worse than any hunter. They didn’t kill Bambi’s mother; they killed Bambi when he was about to be rescued!

The Washington Times reports that nine DNR agents and four deputy sheriffs raided a no-kill animal shelter to seize a presumably abandoned fawn left there by a well-meaning family. The gun-wielding agents then promptly killed the deer because “that’s our policy.”

This all went down a day before the deer, named Giggles, was headed to a new home at a wildlife preserve. Neither compassion nor common sense are welcome at the Wisconsin DNR, where bureaucrats have to obey rules no matter how cruel in any given situation.
