Snake Salesman


How would you like to see this character hovering overhead? This little guy just replaced the tree decoration I put up February first - high time . He's sort of a fast -talking salesman type, similar to Paul at the Diamond Center, if you were living in California about twelve years ago then you were probably lucky enough to see the TV ad with him singing "Credit Man" to sort of the tune of "Soul Man" while his female employees carried him with strained smiles on their faces. Paul looked sort of like the Cheshire Cat as to his grin, but his eyes, unlike the cat's, were extremely small and close together.

Edit: link to Snake with Eyes of Garnet because his (not referring to Paul) voice gives me chills

What, you have male snakes over there?? Here all snakes = die Schlange (though there are only slow-worms left it seems, outside the zoo...) are female

It might stop the Cats climbing up & getting Stuck?

He looks fairly friendly for a guard snake? I don't think we have snakes here in New Zealand (must go check about that). Maybe he would like a trip over (once he's finished up the tree) - however he may get lonely...

This is great! And, thank you kindly for my belly laugh of the day: "...to see the TV ad with him singing 'Credit Man' to sort of the tune of 'Soul Man' while his female employees carried him with strained smiles on their faces."
