The one I heard was about a guy in the shower upstairs when his wife screamed about a snake downstairs in the den. He rushed downstairs, buck naked.
The wife pointed towards her desk in one corner. So, hubby bent down under the desk, looking for the snake. Well, about that time the dog shows up and gooses him in the rear. He rears up so quickly at that assault such that it knocks him out cold.
Wife calls the paramedics for hubby and the snake. They show up and put him on a stretcher, as he's still out cold. On the way out the door, the snake shows up. One paramedic drops the stretcher in fright. This results in a broken leg to hubby on the stretcher.
I can relate to all this because we lived in a house in NJ with similar living arrangements, and a snake came into the den and got underneath the desk. In my case, it was the wife who got the tiny snake while I cowered across the room.
