It’s May 16 and the snakes are still here. Although, at the time of posting, May 16 is almost over in Asia and it’s already May 17 in Australia. But in the US, Canada and across Central and South America, the sun has only been up for a few hours, and it’s not even high noon. Whacking Day should end sometime within the next 24 hours – but it’s quite possible that the final snake you whack may even be whacked as late as the morning of the 17th in the US.

In the meantime, if you’ve reached your prize targets and you haven’t already thanked the people who helped you get there, why not do so. After all, as I’ve seen throughout Whacking Day, many players were only able to achieve their goals thanks to the kindness of strangers.

And with a bit of luck, this could well be my last Whacking Day post…
