Adder kills adder

By Rogerex
This is what happens when a snake (Adder) bites a calculator (adder, [subtractor, multiplier, etc.] ). It must have been a very deadly snake because the calculator started to shrivel up immediately. I am sure you don't believe a word of this, so now for the truth. This calculator had been sitting on the dashoard of a friend's vehicle, the heat of the sun caused it to distort. He also had a rubber snake on the dashboard to try to scare away birds that were leaving their droppings on the windscreen and elsewhere - not successful! Anyway, for a bit of fun we put these two together, and this is the result. I forgot the camera white balance was set on 'tungsten', so this photo (and some others) had a very blue tinge which I have been unable to make into a natural colouring, so I convered it to b&w.
