You might find a rat that knows karate instead.
Your days of snake-charming are over because Cody, your cobra, escaped from his woven basket prison. The DC Select T-Shirt reminds you of him and all the cats and rats he's going to enjoy eating in his new city life. Even if you wanted to get a new venomous friend, you can't afford one. So the Select will have to suffice as a surrogate as you dumpster dive in hopes of finding him.
