Gangsta Cobra

A fellow approached Gary a few weeks ago and asked him, “Can you draw pretty much anything?”

Nothing like a question like this to make you semi-suspicious, especially in jail, so Gary asked, “Like what?”

“A gangsta cobra.”

“A gangster cobra?”

“NO.” The man was very emphatic that he requested a gangsta cobra, not a gangster cobra.

When Gary told me about it on the phone that night, I couldn’t help laughing, then asked, “What exactly does a gangster cobra look like?”

Gary quickly corrected me: “GANGSTA.” Then he told me that the man had described a cobra with huge muscles on its arms, and…

“Cobras don’t have arms,” I pointed out.

Gary said he had told the man this startling fact, but he was rewarded for his wildlife educational tidbit with a blank and disbelieving glower. So, arms it was! Two of them!

With brass knuckles, biceps, bling, and attitude.

All in all, I believe Gary captured the gangsta cobra very well, considering it was a topic of many jokes as he was working on it. (The image here is kind of yucky because it was copied, then scanned.) I posted it on his blog and assured him it would garner him worldwide fame…or at least a few chuckles.

    I had to look that word up online to make sure it wasn’t offensive, before I posted the picture. I have never heard it before!

    I work in the pet industry, and that doesn’t surprise me. Gansta and Gangster are apparently two completely different things. Gangster is more of the Mob (Godfather/romanticized) while Gangsta is totally ghetto gangsta fabulous. Apparently, it’s a lifestyle. Nice work by Gary!

  6. gosh….I learn something every day.

  7. What’s next Gangsta bunny rabitts??
