It's not the 3 metre pythons that you need to worry about.

...especially of the lounge variety. Very dangerous. They're like snakes, only with legs. Snakes! With legs!

In most lounges obviously! :wink:

You've never played the early PC game Leisure Suit Larry? Okay, I know, I'm carbon-dating myself! Larry is a prime specimen of a Lounge Lizard.

Locally they're generally known as a Buaya which is Malay for Crocodile. A sleazy pickup artist in other words........

No wonder women share the same biology, including a coccyx (reptilian within itself!), yet women also come equipped with an extra pair of ribs :P

Mr. P

[P.S. Glad I added "equipped" :cool: ]

Do I remember Larry, oh boy do I, great game but I was being more specific to Singapore, I would notice if I saw a "larry" walking down the street.

The bit where you get VD if you do the hooker without protection is hilarious. An 8 bit explosion in your pants, Eddie Murphy would've been proud. :lol:
