Why did it have to be *snakes*?


Which is worse--having a snake-invested house, or having a snake-infested house?  I'm guessing the latter.  Good thing the house in question here is only snake-invested...perhaps its realtors, owners, or other folks who have something to gain financially from this place are just slimy people?  ;)

My coworker had a snake-infested house...she bought one of those that was built into the side of a hill/mountain and had snakes coming out of the walls. #thingsthatmakeyourskincrawl#

Oh, that sounds extremely unpleasant...that poor girl!

To "invest" also means "to lay seige to". That might mean that the snakes are outside, at least for now. ;)

It also means "to clothe", so a snake-invested house could be one with a roof and or walls made of snakeskin. Even Elvis Presley didn't have one of those!

LOL. That's rich!

@ Arnie: I'm actually surprised Graceland didn't have snakeskin walls! That would have gone well with the random monkey statues and the little river that runs through the living room... :)
