Be careful drinking and buying. Dwayne Matthews of Willenhall, England, awoke to see one of his drunken purchases, a 30-pound rock python named Bruce, "rearing up with its jaws open" above his sleeping friend — generally not something you want to see while nursing an English-grade hangover. Apparently he had purchased the snake the night before from a gypsy. Luckily Matthews awoke just in time to see the snake and promptly threw a blanket over it and put it in an aquarium. He then brought the snake to a local pet shop. He was then promptly arrested for buying stolen goods.
