Bags of Snakes Released in Tax Office to Reap Revenge

Posted by James on December 16th, 2011

In one tax office in India, what was an ordinary day turned into chaos as three bags of snakes were released in a tax office. Yes, three BAGS of snakes. A state official from Utter Pradesh stated that around 40 snakes were unleashed in the office, including several deadly cobras. The office workers stood on desks and chairs, not unlike a cartoon, to escape the serpentine onslaught.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the attack, which officials say was due to the tax office allegedly withholding tax records from the farmers in exchange for bribes. Yes, the farmers decided to unlease a swarm of venemous serpents on the corrupt tax officials, which is now how I’m going to deal with all my problems when people don’t give me the money I’m owed.

Apparently, this reptilian revenge is a common practice, as people have recently taken to extreme forms of demonstration to combat the rampant bribery from officials. Over one thousand videos have been uploaded detailing the names of supposedly corrupt officials, while others have been lobbying for the creation of a watchdog group.

The two men responsible for this dastardly deed, Hukkul Khan and Ramkul Ram, are still being sought. Khan is known locally as a snake charmer, so it is a seemingly fitting method of revenge for him to choose.

    BTW. “Venomous,” not “venemous.”

    Personally, I solve all of my financial troubles by throwing a hive of bees into the offices of those that are causing my trouble. I find that a swarm of angry bees are harder to escape while within an enclosed location. But snakes are cool too. I can see the merits in both solutions.

    This might make an interesting podcast question: Which animal would the Weird Things gang use for their schemes of vengeance?
