 buddy she's a snake not a flying death tentacle
 snakes are not evil killers out for blood, and length doesnt
 mean lethality! my biggest guy is 11 ft-ifi have him around my
 neck, both his face and his tail touch the floor- and even his
 species struggles to take down anything bigger than a smal-to-
 medium dog
 the worst damage that my 8fter is capable of is when she
 decides to do an impression of ab
 makes my arm go a bit purpie, and even that's just when i
 humour her dreams of being big and scary and let her squeeze
 her hardest before i unwind her like a bratty garden hose
 ood-
 pressure cuff and
 as long as you're not some sort of magical tumbiring rat, you're
 fine
 Okay, I gotta ask...
 1. Why was she angry?
 2. Where were you taking her on the bus? is there a leash-free
 snake park where you live?
 I need to know.

 When my sister and I were kids we had
 this one action figure, who was actually a
 brutalized batman doll without his cape
 (the dog chewed half his head, too), who
 we dubbed 'Evil Chancellor Traytor. The
 idea was that in the fictional society of our
 toys, chancellor just came with the word 'evil
 in front of it, as a matter of ancient tradition
 Like 'grand' or 'high' or something along those
 lines
 Anyway, the running gag was that the king
 (an old Power Rangers knock-off doll) had
 absolute and unwavering faith in Evil Chancel-
 lor Traytor, who basically comported himself
 like a mix between Grima Wormtongue and
 Jafar from the Aladdin movies. Everyone was
 always sure that Evil Chancellor Traytor had
 something to do with the nefarious scheme
 of the day. The dude even carried around a
 poisoned knife called 'the kingslayer
 The additional twist on the joke, though, was
 that he never was behind anything. The king
 was actually right. Evil Chancellor Traytor
 was the most devoted civil servant in the
 entire Action Figure Dystopia. He spent his
 nights working on writing up new legislature
 to ensure that b
 mobility devices, was always on the lookout
 to acquire new shoeboxes for expanding city
 infrastructure, and drafted a proposal that
 once got half the 'settlement' in my sister and
 I's closet moved to the upper shelf so that
 vulnerable toys were less likely to be snatched
 roken toys had access to
 the dog
 The knife, as it turned out, was as symbolic
 as the evil in his name. See, Action Figure
 Dystopia had a long history of corrupted
 monarchs getting too big for their thrones and
 exploiting the underclasses. The job of the
 Evil Chancellor was to always remain vigilant,
 and loyally serve a good ruler-or, if the regent
 should became a despot, to slay them on
 behalf of the people
 But since killing the king would be a terrible
 crime, the Evil Chancellor had to be the kind
 of person who would willingly die to spare
 the people from the plight of a wicked leader,
 because the murder would be pinned on them,
 in order to keep the 'machinery of politics
 working as smoothly as ever
 Anyway, Evil Chancellor Traytor had a diary
 in which my sister I would take turns writing
 out the most over-the-top good shit he'd done
 behind the scenes. Usually after everyone else
 had finished talking shit about him. I don't
 know why but we got the biggest kick out of

 so hard that we had to do a special 'episode
 where one of the toys found the Evil
 Chancellor's diary, and so he got a big huge
 memorial and the king threw himself into the
 empty grave and then ordered the toys driving
 the toy bulldozer to bury him so that 'Traytors

 important for some reason)

 ATTENTION!
 Dear Animal Jam Parent,
 This email is being sent in regards to your child's account (luca5724).
 This email is to inform you that this Animal Jam account has been temporarily suspended for 24 hours
 because of inappropriate behavior that violated the Animal Jam Rules
 Even though we have handled the situation in-game and our chat filter has kept most or all of this incident
 from entering the game world, this notice is being sent to the Parent Account email address we have on file
 as a courtesy because we believe that parents should be involved in their child's online experiences.
 We apologize for the vagueness of this email, but we are eager to help you understand the details and
 context of this issue. Feel free to contact our support team by replying to this email.
 Best regards,
 Animal Jam HQ
