Wheres Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson when you need him?
EasyJet passengers were left sitting more uncomfortably than usual after a snake was discovered on board a flight heading to England from Israel.
A wacky traveller sneaked the slithering reptile past airport security in Tel Aviv in a small takeaway box before the alarm was raised mid-flight.
He was then arrested upon the plane landing at Luton airport.
No Samuel L, but an actual snake on a plane. Police about to meet @easyjet arriving from Tel Aviv to Luton, wrote one passenger on Twitter.
My plane is being met by police because someone brought a snake on board and whipped it out mid-flight. Never a dull moment with easyJet, posted another.
A spokesman for the budget airline suggested the serpent, believed to be a corn snake, didnt pose the same threat as those in the cult classic film Snakes on a Plane.
The non-poisonous snake remained in its container at all times and passengers were not in any danger, he said.
We have raised the issue with the airport to understand why the animal was not detected during security. The safety of passengers is always our highest priority.
At least it wasn’t a Mohammadan.
Excuse me while I whip this out.
At least he didn’t whip out his one-eyed snake.
I would wan t my plane to be met by a guy with a shovel
Cue Cleavon /obscure
