Or was it called parsel tongue?
Well, Harry Puttar* might wanna get down to India and figure this one out, for I sure as hell can't.
According to Press Trust of India and a recent article in the Swedish news paper Dagens Nyheter, a woman, Bimbala Das aged 30, fell in love with a snake, and married him.
Well I know it's hard to find a decent bloke out there, but come on?
2000 wedding guests. A bride in a beautiful silk saari. A King Cobra that refuses to come out of the ant hill that is his home, to partake in his own wedding. Maybe he had cold ssssskin? Instead a brass statue was placed before the bride, representing the love of her life.
-Even if snakes don't talk we can communicate in a special way, Bimb(o)la Das claims.
The bride in question has now moved into a hutt next to the ant hill. I am guessing she is living with her in-laws in traditional Desi style. Mama in-law, a cobra. I will leave you to ponder over that last allegory.
I wonder, was it love at first ssssssssssight?
* Puttar is punjabi for son
