Don't give up the day job mate, you'd never make a living as a comedian Tongue
There's a few Adders here in Sheffield, real ones, especially in the grass verges down near the old Fletcher's place at Claywheels Lane.

If an adder broke a rib would it notice?

This one wouldn't, I think it's dead. Lips are sealed

I don't mind admitting I'm actually scared stiff of Snakes!
Ever since someone brought a big massive Python to School and wanted to put it on my shoulders, they tried to and I went barmy! I also saw the match at the WWE 1994 Survivor Series, where Jake "The Snake" Roberts set a massive King Cobra on the late "Macho Man" Randy Savage, who lived to tell the tale (the Snake had obviously been devenomised prior to the event) it was still pretty darn scary though.

Don't you recognise a Norwegian Blue snake when you see one?

Snakes are one of my favourite animal groups.
I had a grass snake as a kid but would have something more substantial now if I could.

Re: Careful if you see one of these snakes in the garden..

Lived in a rented room moons ago and one of the other guys there had a couple of snakes. One day one suddenly vanished and we thought that he'd killed it or something. He told us it had escaped. Given his previous record with pets we didn't quite believe him. A short while later he moved out.
Months later we have a water leak. Up come the floor boards and there is a snake skin  Shocked
We never did find the snake..
