An Actual Snake on an Actual Plane

Yes, but was it secured in a Ziploc bag? Did they make it take of its shoes in security? If so, what was a snake doing with shoes?

Suspicious if you ask me.

Ah...I sent this story in too yesterday and didn't get picked. My story even had the doc/pilot doing aerobatics to get the snake to the back of the plane.

Points to the guy for maintaining control of the plane.

I would have jumped out of the seat, screaming and dancing around flailing my arms and trying to climb up on top of high stuff, thus plunging to my death.

This is why they won't give me my pilot's license. That, and the fact that I don't know how to fly.

Damn FAA.

What were we talking about again?

Me too, Al. Mine had this quote from the good doctor:

"I've been flying planes for 50 years and over 14,000 hours, and this is the most unusual in-flight emergency I've encountered," he said. "I guess it wasn't exactly an emergency, but I did almost hurt myself when I saw it."

Translation: I peed myself.

YAY!! for me...I did NOT send this in!! ;-P

Yes you did Siouxie. Don't be modest. We all know you did.

Mmmm....doctor taste good!

The snake licked him??? I've had that happen to me before.

Y'see? Y'SEE!!!!!

I told everyone that "Snakes On A Plane" was based on real events, but noooooooo....no one would believe me...

Hmph. Doubters.

Punkin~ Yeah, I was impressed that he kept his cool. Most people in that situation (including me) would've freaked out.

Doctor that flies
Licked by a snake you see
So then he cries
"That snake just made me pee"

Hey, Bumble - long time, no see! Welcome back.

Scott~ Thanks. Good to be back. :-)

ArticAl - since you're Canadian and therefore second class can't vote for Dave, don't hold your breath on the posting thing. jeff, well, you're just jeffy, so booger.

I saw this and knew Dave would love it. I also realized that on Sunday mornings, Dave is usually nursing a hangover perusing the papers online, so he'd find it himself. So I want credit for NOT sending it in. And I didn't send it in BEFORE Siouxie. So I want credit for that, too.

Hey, Bumble - LTNS!

And yet, I would still prefer a snake to sharing a plane with this guy.

Oh well, off to go annoy fishies and crabs....

Edgar?? ;-P (I did not!)

This is o/t, but seems as good a place as any to announce that I saw a license plate yesterday which read "007 MD"

It was out-of-state, so I don't have to trace it but if you live somewhere that rhymes with "Pissouri", you might want to check the parking lot at your clinic.

/OT healthcare note

Betsy - maybe the doc is into bondage.

Annnie...Or maybe bandage???

Oops...*reaches up to remove superfluous 'n' before Annie notices*

Annie, I'll fight you for that "non-sending-in-first" spot!!!!

*pulls up chair to watch girl-fight*

Oh, man! I have to leave for the gym, now. I guess I'll miss the fight. Carry on without me.

byeeeeeeeeee Scott! we'll video tape it for ya!


Frankly, I don't think I would have been able to come to an understanding with that snake, and I would have been calling for an emergency landing. I'm also not sure this was a good story for me to read this morning, as I'm supposed to be going up in a small plane in a couple of hours! I will have to remind my pilot to complete the "Remove all snakes from plane" checklist.

Are rat snakes good eatin'?

Hey, Bumble - LTNS!

Annie~ You too!

*tackles Annie with a bear hug*

Gah! Easy, Bumble - I had snakes on my brain, so you surprised me there. Although it's VERY nice to have you back. You were here when I first started on the blog. Not that you're old or anything.

But did he get any peanuts? Complimentary beverage? Hot towel?

Yeah, I started hanging out here shortly after Dave stopped with the weekly columns. I don't remember exactly how long ago that was.

*hangs "Ye Olde Blog Fogey" sign above head*

Psst! Don't tell anyone, but I'm only 23. :-)

You don't look a thread over 22.


*zips in*™

I didn't send it in either. As a matter of fact, I haven't sent in anything that's been posted by Dave or judi for the past three days. So y'all know what that means, don't you?

It means, I WIN!!!

What's the prize?

A tackle!

*tackles El in a bear hug*

Good to see you again. :-)

You too, Bumble! :)

Hey, Bumble! Nice to see you back.

I just watched SoAP, and it's really just as eye-rollingly bad as you might expect. Yes, I waited for cable. Seemed like it would have been a waste of $4 to rent it. I was right.
