On today’s episode of “There’s no way we can make this stufff up…” A Florida man tried to kiss a rattlesnake, but ended up being bitten on the tongue by the creature instead. Action News Jax reports that Ron Reinold was playing with the snake when he made his move. “Ron was just acting silly, you know? I guess he said he could kiss the devil and get away with it, but evidently he didn’t,” neighbor Charles Goff explained. Reinold was flown to the hospital by helicopter in critical condition after the encounter on Tuesday, but is doing much better now and is expected to survive. The snake is believed to have escaped after the encounter. It’s still not clear why Reinold tried to kiss the snake in the first place.
