PYTHONESQUE

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Only in the Far North . . . a lo­cal shop owner was alerted late at night by peo­ple pass­ing her cloth­ing store who had a no­ticed a good sized python ma­noeu­vring around the in­te­rior of the shop. It had come in from the back of the shop, which was ren­o­vated a lit­tle while back, climbed over a grille, and hap­pily made its way along the shelves and the counter and some of the fit­tings, swip­ing bits and pieces onto the floor. The owner begged Co­conut not to put this in the pa­per – as if he would! – as “those women from the cities will never come into my shop again”, due to the word “snake” hav­ing now been linked to the premises. You know how ev­ery­one south of the bor­der is about th­ese things.
