Why Did the Snake Cross the Road?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A cyclist in Kansas came to a stop on a rural Kansas road when he approached a large snake slithering across the pavement. The video shows the cyclist`s perspective as he comes to a stop on a rural road in Coffeyville.

The cause of the cyclist`s alarm is revealed as a large snake slithering across his path.

The cyclist holds carefully still, not attempting to continue until the snake has made it safely to the other side of the road."


This story begs the question: Why did the snake cross the road?

When you see a large snake crossing the road right in front of you it`s not the time to wax philosophical.

Who gives a flying fig why the snake is crossing the road, just give it a wide berth, and get out of its freaking way.

If you`re on a bike or jogging and a snake is crossing the road, the snake always has the right of way. If you`re driving then you can wax philosophical, but don`t run over the snake, that would be bad karma.
