Gift to someone being promoted

Went to a going away party , for someone at my former workplace, being promoted from supervision to first level management.

Was driving to the restaurant, and passed a sporting goods store. My inner devious sob trait kicked in , went around the block, to the sporting goods store and bought a special gift. Half assed gift warped it and went to the luncheon.

Some cards were presented, then I present this poor soul with the gift , to a roar of laughter :

A Snake Bite Kit .

She is going to need it at the viper den she is being sent to .

Well done! Did the recipient appreciate it?

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
Slow and steady wins the race.

That's a good one, made my LOL!!! Those snakes are more venomous the higher one gets in an organization.
Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.
