"What about Richard?" Kelly Minkin asked Jason Mercier. With former NFL player Richard Seymour at the table, the topic was baby names for Mercier's unborn son. A few other players murmured their approval before Denny Crum chimed in.
"I don't have any kids," Crum said, "But I did get a new snake recently."
The remaining players laughed.
"I kept on coming up with snake puns for their names, but there were too many that I liked. There was a top three, and then what I named it," he continued.
"Tell us your top three, and I'll tell you my favourite," said Kelly Minkin.
"Well there was Dick van Strike — I'm all in — Sir Hiss-a-lot, and the one I did go for, Justin Timbersnake," said Crum. His all in, which he announced partway through his serpentine monologue, was uncalled.
"Well, Justin Timbersnake is obviously the best!" replied Minkin.
