Default Snakes in a house!

So, picture a nice house... priced at around $109,000. Would you buy it? Well, would you buy it if it were infested with thousands of snakes?

Haha, they updated the article: http://consumerist.com/2011/01/snake...ld-on-lie.html

Apparently they forgot to mention the snakes were real when they sold the property, or that the house had even been featured on the Animal Planet show "Infested".

Wow, the description alone is disgusting enough to keep people away. I couldn't imagine even being in that house, much less living there.
