This stretches the truth. THIS could really happen.

Just so you all get it straight:

This stretches the truth.

This could really happen.

CONNOR: Here’s my homework, Mom.

I review the drawings.

MOMMY: Hmm. So… a guy can’t grab a snake. But he can catch a whale? That could really happen?

Connor sighs heavily.

CONNOR: NO. Of course he can catch a snake. But he can’t use it as a lasso to catch that bull. That couldn’t really happen.

MOMMY: Well, no. I guess not. But then if he went fishing, he could catch a fish that big? That could really happen?

CONNOR: He would catch it. But then, see, the arrow means he would fall right in the water. That’s what would really happen.

Got it.

The guy in the top photo is also "squeezing the venom out of the snake," or so the artist told me. This is why the best museums have informative gallery cards.

Right, I forgot that part. Squeezing the venom out of the snake? Sure, that could happen. Making him into a circle with a knot? Let's not be ridiculous.

"Squeezing the venom out of the snake" really does happen! Venom is used to produce antivenin, and also for research and pharmaceutical applications.
