My city’s public high school made it onto the local news last week. I hoped it would go viral (and did my best to help it along on social media). My hopes were finally fulfilled when Stephen Colbert did this segment last night:
Don’t worry: Kai the snake is (according to social media and the principal) very friendly and perfectly harmless. He’s also been found and returned to his home, where he’s going to stay.
(By the way, that is NOT how to pronounce Fond du Lac.)
This is how the school year began for Fond du Lac high school students: with the principal sending out hilarious e-mails/phone messages about a missing snake. He didn’t mean them to be funny, but we couldn’t help giggling and sharing them on social media.

My favorite tweet:
Imagine having your first taste of freedom in your life, just to be put back in that small cage for the rest of it #freekai
