The world’s dumbest man is currently recovering in hospital after being bitten on the tongue by a rattlesnake he was apparently trying to kiss.
Ron Reinhold of Putnam County, Florida, landed himself in a bit of bother after attempting to get hot and heavy with a rattlesnake his neighbour, Charles Goff, had caught on his property.
But what started out as the world’s weirdest version of Spin The Bottle soon turned to terror when Ron, after leaning in to kiss the trapped serpent, learned that hard way that the feeling was definitely not reciprocated.
Bitten by the venomous snake, Ron was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition.
Though his family has since confirmed he is now expected to survive the “attack” , Ron nevertheless remains hooked up to a feeding tube with one very sore mouth.
“Ron was just acting silly, you know?” Charles Goff told ActionNewsJax. “I guess he said he could kiss the devil and get away with it, but evidently he didn’t.”
The story should hopefully serve as a warning to anyone that might be thinking about trying to kiss a snake.
For the rest of us, meanwhile, it’s just another example of the shocking depths of stupidity some people plummet to on a daily basis.
Let’s just be thankful he didn’t try to kiss a crocodile, though it would be safe to assume some dumb asshole has done that in the past too.
Honestly, the world we live in today…
