AKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) — A Lake Elsinore man may have to lose his hand after he picked up a rattlesnake in order to take a selfie with it.
KCBS-TV reports that 36-year-old Alex Gomez snatched up the snake Monday at his family's ranch. The snake bit his hand which swelled. His neighbor called 911 and he was transported to an area hospital.

It’s much safer to take a selfie with a camera.

Maybe instead of saying, Hold muh beer" he should have said, "Hold muh snake"....
For some reason it reminds me of the old joke about the drunk who was playing cards. he went to the bathroom and when he came back he had forgot to zip it up and it laid out on the table as he used it as a brace to steady himself. One of the other drunks saw it and said, A snake!" The owner said, Kill it!" Another smashed his beer bottle down on it and the owner cried, "It bit me! Hit it again!"

It is the nature of rattlesnakes to be - rattlesnakes.
And the rattle was probably buzzing furiously all the time.
The Universe is a cruel and unforgiving place. Especially for the stupid.

Thats the picture? How is that a selfie? Neither of his hands are holding the camera or a selfie stick.

I’ don’t know if that is the actual picture?
I think it’s just to put a face with the name.

I contend that people are getting dumber and dumber.
I just don't remember adult men acting like this when I was a kid.
