This week we tackle the most inevitable of apocalyptic scenarios, "What if snakes took over the world?" Would it spell the end of humanity as we know it? or would we be able to do like St. Patrick before us, and banish them into the fiery pits from which they sprang. The only thing that's certain, is we've had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking island!
Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, known to have driven the snakes of the island. While not exactly true, it sure makes for an interesting scenario. We talk about it, the real Paddy, how to survive a snake bite, and much more, in this Saint Patrick's Day Special.
