    And let’s not forget that deep south religious group that defies the danger of this world by practicing the horrifying hoop snake dance, which some believe led to the Hula Hoop.

    Or the ancient Greek tradition, still practiced today, of breaking dishes to ward off the dreaded hoop snake of that country, usually accompanied by the shouting of the word, “HOOPA, HOOPA”.

  2. Bob: The more I learn about your career, the more I’m reminded of the Grateful Dead classic, “What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been.” I hope the trip continues for many more years.

    Whats all this hoopla about? They have more snakes than Carter has peanuts down in the Bayou. Aggressive copperheads (which no one escaped prisoner ever has made it out of their habitat alive), cotton mouths, water moccasins (kinda cute) and more that slip my memory. But a hoop snake is not to be messed with. Yes, their aim is poor because they are blind as a bat and have no sense of smell or direction. But, if they hit their target, Whoa Nellie, the dam is busting!

    Which makes be wonder why the Irish ever left the Emerald Isle. Most dangerous thing there is the humble bubble bee.

    The hoop snake possibly is an embellishment of actual instances of snakes swallowing their own tails.
