  2. $1.98 was like $400 in 1951. You may as well have paid to have an ACTUAL snake grafted onto your clavicle, if you were that determined to pull off wacky serpentine hijinks. Either way, the odds are you'd get repeatedly punched in the throat while some guy warned you to hold very still. Now THAT would make for an amusing April Fool's Day. "Ha-ha, you dumb dummy, you collapsed my trachea over a rubber snake! LOL, wotta rube!"
