Missing Bronx Cobra Inspires Shamless Marketing Opportunity
Because it has absolutely nothing to do with food (unless you enjoy eating live mice), we haven't been paying much attention to the continuing saga of the cobra that escaped from the Bronx Zoo last Friday. But the marketing types at Venom Energy Drink have, and are offering a year's supply of their product to the zoo employee who catches the snake. Whether that qualifies as a reward or a punishment is open to interpretation, but it's certainly a cheap and effective way to fulfill one's daily quota of taurine and corn syrup.
