The hunt for the elusive 8ft-long Orlando king cobra, which escaped from its owner in the vicinity of the 4800 block of North Apopka Vineland Road, is still on.

And though the snake has yet to be found, and probably will never be found, at least this completely bizarre story found its way into The Onion

The topic of the missing snake was the main focus of yesterday's American Voices section of the satirical site, where they asked "random people" what they thought about the story.

The picture above is one of the better responses, but you should definitely read the whole thing here. 

You can also follow the snake on one of its many Twitter handles.
