Take your medicine with snakes

Recently I received a prescription for Creon capsules and the dose was take two with meals and one with snakes. When a family member of the patient picked up the medicine I pointed out that the patient must have a strange diet because I would have thought it should be one taken with snacks rather than snakes. He laughed and said she only eats one rattlesnake per day!
