AP is reporting that 1000 snake-charmers are protesting in India against a law that outlaws their particular performance. Critics claim that the charmers abuse their slithery associates by taking out their fangs or sewing their mouths shut. I’m more interested in protest tactics than snake rights. Did they bring their snakes with them? I feel like snake-charmers are one group of protesters with whom cops wouldn’t want to fuck. Anyone within the movement feel like taking up snake-charming? I can see it now: Funk the War 25 – Snakes on a Protest.
