Sometimes you have just had it with those motherfucking snakes on a motherfucking plane. Samuel L. Jackson knows this all too well. And now, ninety passengers aboard an Egypt Air flight from Cairo to Kuwait know too. An Egyptian Cobra bit a man and started slithering under the seats of an airplane forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.

Seriously, this sounds like something that couldn't even happen in a movie! It all started when a 48-year-old Jordanian man who owned a reptile shop in Kuwait tried hid his Egyptian Cobra in his carry-on luggage and brought it onto the plane. As he was trying to control the snake, it bit his hand and went loose. CNN says:

The Egyptian daily al-Masry al-Youm reported that the man refused medical treatment, claiming his wound was only superficial. The plane resumed its flight to Kuwait after local authorities confiscated the snake.

Egyptian Cobras aren't a joke. Their venom can kill an elephant in three hours and a man in 15 minutes. Still, the rest of the flight went without incident. I'm guessing Samuel L. Jackson had something to do with that. [CNN]
