Snakes on a plane can actually happen??
Where's Samuel L. when you need him? 90 passengers on flight from Cairo to Kuwait were diverted when an Egyptian cobra got loose and bit a passenger. Although the man in question completely deserved it seeing as he was smuggling the snake in his carry-on bag. Apparently, the Jordanian owns a reptile shop in Kuwait and was 'trying to control the snake' as it bit his hand and started hiding under seats. How the other passengers didn't freak out is anyone's guess.
CNN reports that the man refused treatment saying the wound was 'superficial', which is odd seeing as the Egyptian cobra's venom is strong enough to take down an elephant. The Egypt Air flight continued after the little biter was confiscated and removed. No word on the crazy fool and whether he has turned into some snake-immune superhero.
