SNAKES!!! is an activity run by RAs Matt Weber and Jeff Murphy at Easton, PA. It consists of three essential parts: first, the demands; second, the reading of snake facts; and third, the Snakes games. The day on which SNAKES!!! occurs on is called Snakes Day and is followed by FLAAR the second activity period.
Snakes are also on a Plane. This fact has absolutely nothing to do with SNAKES!!!
NOTE: This activity has been adopted at the Skidmore site. It is primarily run by the RA Jae. At the end of this each year, participants are given the opportunity to provide new snake facts, which are officially recorded. It is unclear whether these new facts have reached the awareness of the good people at Easton.
Every time snakes was run it would start with Matt saying:
- What do we want!!!
- When do we want 'em!!!
The answer to both of these questions is "SNAKES!!!" which is shouted by everyone at the activity. This is repeated 2-5 times.
SNAKES!!! began as a joke between Staff members Jeff Murphy, Matt Weber and former SRA Jeb Butler. During a morning meeting, Jeb said that he hated snakes. Matt and Jeff immediately decided that there would be an activity that would be called SNAKES!!! The next day, it was run for the first time. There were only twelve people who attended. Jeff and Matt hoped Jeb would be among those attending. Sadly, he was not.
SNAKES!!! was passed onto the next generation as Jae Vick ran SNAKES!! during her first year as an RA.
WHAT DO WE WANT??? (You know....)
This are a series of strange and ridiculous "facts" about snakes. If a fact was approved (most were), the group would scream SNAKES!!! If a fact was rejected, another word would be screamed; this changed from year to year.
- SNAKE KILLED DUMBLEDORE!
- SNAKES ON A PLANE!
- A SNAKE ONCE CLIMBED MOUNT EVEREST. HOWEVER, THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT WAS NEVER RECOGNIZED BECAUSE SNAKES CANNOT PLANT FLAGS.
A series of games played with plastic snakes tied together.
