Snake on a plane

A PILOT flying himself across Mississippi in a one-seat plane, discovered a stowaway - a grey rat snake.

Dr Ed Carruth discovered the snake when it began "licking" his arm yesterday, he told The Daily Leader of Brookhaven.
"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."
Needing to fly the plane and lacking tools to get rid of the snake, "I did some aerobatics," Carruth said.
"And once he got oriented, he went to the back of the plane."

Without Samuel L Jackson, it's missing that... je ne sais quoi

Personally, I think this story is missing gunplay. And an international conspiracy by a shadowy organization bent on world domination. Oh, and a gorgeous young woman who grew up on a ranch so she knows how to ride a horse and shoot straight. And maybe Chris Tucker for comic relief.

Just sayin'...
