* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Averted! How often in a fairy tale does listening to a ''snake'' turn out to be a ''good'' thing? Usually, they're oversized and want to eat you.
** It's cultural: in Africa, snakes are wise, spiritual and linked to time and water. Even if, occasionally, a little dangerous, they're not AlwaysChaoticEvil. They'll only turn nasty if you cross them, don't listen to their advice or fail their tests in most tales. Oh, and pots come up a lot: it's cross-cultural, possibly even linked to the whole water thing.
