It’s safe to say I would have never heard the #Selfie song by The Chainsmokers – satirical commentary on our love for selfies – had the wife and kids not introduced me to it maybe a week ago to tease me about taking a selfie.
The venomous snake has four – yes, four – Twitter accounts vying for the public’s attention with biting humor. Update: Looks like we’re down to three after one of the earliest accounts, @Vinnie_Viper has disappeared. RIP Vinnie.
Which one is your favorite?

We’ve got a lot of great pics in the Instagram gallery this week, including the one above from Billy Carson. Check them out and remind your friends to keep tagging their best Lowcountry Instagram photos with #postandcourier.
We have also upped the stakes in our other weekly photo assignment. In case you’re not familiar, each week we give you a topic, you send us your best pictures and our editors choose their favorite to appear in the newspaper on Fridays.
We’ve got something special for the next nine weeks or so. Now, in addition to being eligible to have your picture in the paper, we’re looking for photos to run in The Post and Courier’s My Charleston Magazine - our annual publication about the Lowcountry.
The folks at WCIV ABC News 4 were in for a cold-blooded surprise Friday after a 7-year-old Cub Scout, visiting the station for a tour, reportedly lost his pet bearded dragon he had smuggled in to the building unbeknownst to his parents.
Staff at the station didn’t learn of the disappearance until after the Scout returned home.
It must be hard to be Taylor Swift. The global superstar can’t even walk along the street without a candid shot of her appearing on fan blogs and social media within minutes, igniting a flurry of tweets from excited “Swifties” determined to seek her out.
Taylor Swift is in downtown Charleston. I WILL find her.
