Falupo’s story

It’s not easy being small, like me. I’m just bite-size to a sand snake. Yeuch. Pfuh! Sand snakes. Dangerous, sly, wriggly things, they are.


They’re quiet. You can’t hear them coming, as they crawl across the sand and the grass. Then SNAP! GOBBLE! You’re gone. 


I know. It’s happened to so many good friends.


But I’m smart. People came, and built houses, with places to hide. The good thing is that people don't like snakes either. They’re even more scared of them than I am. They scream and shout when they see them. Which is pretty silly. Sand snakes aren’t big enough to eat people.


So here I am now. Sitting high up, inside a human house. Nasty horrible snakes can’t get me here. Stupid snakes can only wriggle across the ground. No legs! Hahahahaha! So they can’t hop and jump.


Anyway, excuse me. I’m going to have a nap, until the next fly comes by. Flies are as stupid as snakes, but they taste better.

做个小家伙可不是件容易的事,就像我,沙蛇一口就可以吃掉我。呃,沙蛇,他们可不是什么好东西,危险又狡猾,不停蠕动着。


他们很安静,他们匍匐前进在沙子和草地间时,你根本察觉不到他们。紧接着就是嘶、嗷!你就没了。


我知道,我们许多的好友都遇到过这种事儿。


但我很聪明。人类来到这里,建起房子,让我有了一席藏身之地。好消息是人类也不喜欢蛇,他们甚至比我还怕蛇。遇到蛇时他们会大喊大叫,那样子挺傻的,沙蛇可还没大到可以吃掉一个人类。


所以我来到这里,在某个人类的家里,坐在高处。这下那些恶心又可怕的蛇可够不着我了。愚蠢的蛇只能在地面蠕动,因为他们连腿都没有!


哈哈哈哈,所以他们没法跳起来


行吧,不好意思,我要小憩一下,直到有苍蝇路过,他们跟蛇一样蠢,不过味道倒是很棒。


Ignore the meerkat.
