  • Out West, when a Man sees a rattlesnake, he stops the truck (manual transmission, American-made). He takes his beer and goes around to the bed of the truck. His dog is back there guarding the steel toolbox, but it doesn't bark. Not at him. He takes out an ax and walks straight up to that snake.

    Then he spends a couple minutes maneuvering the snake onto the handle of the ax so that everyone can get a good look at it before he moves it into the sagebrush.
