Who Discovered What Now?

The "discovery" of a small snake in Barbados is causing some controversy among the locals.

Barbados: "We totally knew about that snake! My grandmother showed it to me!"

Scientists: "Discovery means scientifically studied for the first time!"

Barbados: "Oh yeah? Well we don't need foreigners coming into our backyard and telling us what's what!"

Scientists: "Snakes are apolitical!"

Barbados: "You act like you own the snake!"

Scientists: "It's the size of a quarter, isn't that cool?"

Barbados: "OH! Couldn't compare it to one of our coins, could you!"
