I, Senator Leonard K. Bullfinch, am proud to announce that
I have been chosen as the honorary spokesman for the NRA – the National Rattlesnake Association.
Americans, we are all blessed with certain inalienable rights. We have the right to say what we darn well
want when we darn well want to say it. We have the right to worship wherever and whatever we so please,
be it Baptist or Methodist. And we have the right to defend ourselves from those who would want to take
these rights, these freedoms, away from us.
And there is no better way to defend ourselves than by owning
and carrying live rattlesnakes. Therefore, I urge all Americans to become a member of the National Rattlesnake
As a member of the National Rattlesnake Association, we believe that every citizen has the right
to protect himself and his family, be that threat real or imaginary. We further believe that there is no
better way to protect yourself than with a live rattlesnake. After all, what could be more American than
a rattlesnake? And a rattlesnake is more effective than a handgun, in that it doesn’t need to be
aimed, it won’t show up on a metal detector, and should you ever be incapacitated or caught unawares, it will act on
its own. As well, it never needs to be reloaded. Think of the money you will save every
year on bullets alone. And then there is the peace of mind that a price cannot be placed upon.
Just the thought that you may be carrying a concealed rattlesnake should make any would be villain think twice.
And should someone want to break into your home, knowing that there could be a rattlesnake coiled behind your home
entertainment center would make any burglar wish he’d gone to trade school instead. Indeed, that
burglar would have no idea where that snake might be hiding. And let me tell you, any rapist is going to
think twice before exposing any of his more delicate body parts, not knowing just where that snake might be. That
sort of peace of mind is something that every man owes his wife and his family.
There are those who counter
that rattlesnakes are inherently dangerous, especially if you have children or pets living in the home. To
them I say, “Poo.” First of all, a rattlesnake is all the pet you will ever need.
And children can be taught not to play with it, just as they can be taught not to play with handguns. And
if you line a playpen with Plexiglas, why, there’s no way that snake is going to get in there. As
an added bonus, you will no longer have to worry about rodents and other vermin in your house.
Therefore, I urge every God fearing American to join the National Rattlesnake Association.
