Snakes in the Restaurant

It’s true. My aunt and grandma told me about how it’s a common revenge practice in Hong Kong to unleash snakes in a restaurant. H.K. gangster style.

These establishments seat 3-400 people. The choice hour is lunchtime dim sum, when the restaurant is bustling with business meetings and ladies that lunch.

They would bring in a bag of snakes and let ‘em go. Let them slither around.

It’s only a matter of time before one wraps itself around a leg. Panic. Shrieks.
A bit of frenzy as the customers run out.

The snakes are a warning. The snakes are blackmail.
