Snake with Legs Found

CHUAR n. snake (pronounced choo-wa)

The Star up the ante of ridiculous news with this article: Snake with legs found!

What? Snake with legs? I thought that was the nickname of porn-star Ron Jeremy.

This snake with legs turned out to be a baby snake! Instead of contacting the zoological department and handing this small, feeble creature to the experts, the discoverer resorted to "self-defence" and said this...

"The snake crept up to me and I hit it until it died because I was afraid it could be poisonous."

Sisuahlai's message to this fellow... be very afraid now:

If the standard Malaysian response to weird and wonderful creatures is to smash them to smithereens, I would be VERY, VERY SCARED if I was BIGFOOT.


If you want help for chuar-phobia. Aim your mouse here. (ya ya ya, very funny, chuar likes mouse)

"Lau chua" means snake...and it also means that u idle around doing nothing (or blogging - like some people u know, or go on extended tea-breaks or imaginary sick leave), in which case it's not a phobia but a syndrome...esp among Malaysians?

chuar-sna-kar (snake sprouting legs) connotes a tall tale; same as how-siaw. all can be appropiately used for the snake with legs story.

Chi-leng is Hokkien for "house lizard". The intended name for the chi-leng was chi-cak (malay for lizard). But thanks for highlighting anyway.
