Dis­pen­sary Cor­ner

Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

AN ANTIVENOM alert last week turned out to be an an­ti­cli­max, due to a case of mis­taken iden­tity by a pan­icky ueens­land woman.

The Sippy Downs res­i­dent rang her lo­cal snake catcher about a pur­ported in­truder, fran­ti­cally say­ing “I think there is a snake in the back­yard, I am sit­ting still for the time be­ing, can you get some­one out as soon as pos­si­ble ”

The rep­tile ex­pert, Stu­art McKen­zie, wrote on Face­book that “she seemed quite stressed over the phone and I got some­one there ASAP”.

How­ever once the snake catcher ar­rived, rather than a red-bel­lied black snake, the of­fend­ing beast ( pic­tured below) turned out to be a rub­ber strap.

“They both sort of had a laugh, in the end I think she was a bit re­lieved it wasn’t a snake,” he said.

A BAR in the Is­raeli city of Jaffa is clearly tar­get­ing a fe­male de­mo­graphic with the launch of a so-called “Bloody Hour” which gives men­stru­at­ing women a 25% dis­count on their drinks.

The ladies who own the bar said fe­males who have their pe­riod “de­serve a favour,” adding that they hoped it would also open up dis­cus­sion of a taboo topic.
