Lebanese Army soldiers are still eating snakes

I have been mocking the tradition of Lebanese Army soldiers (who slept for much of the Israeli attack on Lebanon in 2006) who in public performances see the need to bite on snakes.  To show heroism I guess.  Well, guess what? Lebanese Army soldiers were taken yesterday to a hospital suffering from poisoning after they performed the snake act in one Lebanese university.  And with snakes, Lebanon can defend its borders against Israeli attacks.  (thanks Mazen)
