Man Bites Dog, or Snake, in This Case

In journalism the phrase “man bites dog” refers to an unusual twist to a common event. It’s not uncommon for a dog to bite a man but a man biting a dog, that’s odd.

This past Saturday evening I heard the strangest Wake County fire or EMS transmission I’ve heard in a while. It appears the call went out as a snake bite. And while that was partially correct, listen to what actually happened.

“Well I guess the snake has an issue, but he doesn’t.”
