They made a strange couple, as she was wearing her Boa and Garter and he his Mocassins and chewing Wrigglies gum. He asked for the bill and because he was a fast Adder, they left quickly in his old Rattler. When they got to his apartment,he slithered into the bedroom, came out with a ring and proposed. He then showed her his enormous asp, which was in a huge krait. Although it was a civilserpent, Ana became hissterical. Her breathing felt constricted and her heart was in the pit of her stomach.

Riotously funny sentence! Interesting that we both mention Monty Python in our sentences today (I didn't see yours before I posted).

I think that was rather cold blooded of Ana - Monty will be a hard act to swallow

I'm told that the expression, "civil servant" is an oxymoron; if so, is "civil serpent" a toxy-moron. Nice word; funny sentence.
