before tramping through snake infested fields, swamps and ditches, make sure you are properly kitted out with these anti-venom/anti-throttle socks.

many snakes detest perfumes, and to this end these socks are impregnated with 1 litre of pure stale male sweat and baked in an ordinary oven for three weeks at mark 6 until the ankle area is rock hard approximately 7 on the moh scale. the smell will put off any sensible snake and the hardness factor would prevent any constrictor type snake getting a serious grip on your leg.

as a further precaution, dead mice are knotted by the tails to threads suspended from the top of the sock. any snake daft enough to get near these socks is rewarded with a mouse treat giving you enough time to leg it to safe ground.

       Being somewhat fashion-conscious, I would dye my socks and mice with camoflage to match my combat trousers.

       And a sweaty mongoose as a companion, that should do it.

       You'd have to travel alone, and you'd have to not have a sense of smell or decency.   

       And yeah, illustrate.

       I don't have a sense of anything really.
