Tony "Mommy" Eggmonteror is the author of The Mamba du Mal: A Snake That Will Never Kill Me, a book published by Venom Feels Delightful Press. Tony "Mommy" Eggmonteror is an anagram of Montgomery Montgomery.
There are two known excerpts from his book:
- "The Mamba du Mal is one of the deadliest snakes in the hemisphere, noted for its strangulation grip, used in conjunction with its deadly venom, giving all of its victims a tenebrous hue, which is ghastly to behold."
- "More pleasant to contemplate, however, are the snake's excellent communication skills. Certain specimens of the Mamba du Mal have been trained to recite certain phrases in an encoded form of English so they might be employed as guardians of crucial headquarters. A mamba du mal hissing the phrase 'Summer is' for instance, is communicating a coded version of the phrase 'Enemies are nearby.' The hissed phrase 'over and gone' translates to 'probably in disguise,' and the mamba has been known to hiss the word 'dying' as a code for 'Beware of arson.' The only other creature with communication skills sufficient to convey these messages is the common grass cricket."
