R.I.P. Plissken


Plissken, our one-eyed snake whose name was chosen from contest entries by Hammer film star Shane Briant, has died of unknown causes. Age at time of death unknown.

He will be very much missed by Jane the Voodoo Queen and myself.

A one eyed snake eh? I'd crack some jokes but I'm sure they were already done. :P
And of course, we should make fun of the dead and all that...

So sorry for the loss of your pet. I know how much they become part of the family. :(

((Hugs))

Sorry about Plissken. How long was he part of the family?

My condolences, Max. I guess all Plisskens, regardless of species, must 'escape' at some point. Sorry to hear it.

Aw damn. Sorry to hear that. :(

Sorry to hear that, Max, just so long as there isn't a future post in which Plissken is up to living hijinks again and we all respond with "I thought you were dead."

My sincere sympathies, Max and Jane. Must be hell finding a coffin that's 6 feet long and 3 inches wide.

Everyone-- thank you for your comments. Alex, we had Plissken just a coupla days shy of a year.

Jane's pretty upset by it. We enjoyed having him. Watching him slither or hunt fish in his water bowl was interesting. He provide endless fascination for our cat Monty. We called the tank Plissken was in "cat TV."

Pierre-- we buried him in a case for an Alpine horn. No- but seriously-- he was just shy of two feet long. He rests in the back yard in a cigar box underneath a homemade glass marking stone with his name on it.

Sorry to hear about Plissken, though I gotta say the name alone made him a damned cool snake. RIP, l'il buddy.
