Late 50's, early 60's...Sitting in the living room with my Dad. I remember watching Bill Haast on the TV show "You asked for it" hosted by Jack Smith or maybe Art Baker? I do remember the host having slicked back hair. (I honestly couldn't remember, so I googled this info)
As a kid, I didn't know Mr. Haast's name. All I knew was that he was handling the biggest cobra I had ever laid my eye's on!
So, looking through the on-line photo's of this guest book, I couldn't believe it, the picture of that huge cobra snake is there!
And it still gets me kinda jumpy.
If you look you'll most likely agree with me if you look through the photo's, it's probably the biggest cobra you too might had ever seen?
Thinking back as a kid, I had nightmares for years about that show and especially that snake.
Oddly enough I've talked about that show on and off my whole life, just to young to remember the names and what have you... a good snake story though?
Funnier yet, my wife often wonders why I run and jump into bed at night?
God Bless Bill Haast.
