It was a red letter day for the TSA last Thursday. The security officials at Miami International Airport managed to apprehend a man trying to sneak seven snakes and three tortoises in his pants on a plane heading to Brazil.

It all sounds like very strange heist movie, but the smuggler was promptly arrested and the animals put into custody. All I have now are trouser snake jokes and awkward puns. Honestly, who sticks reptiles in their pants and thinks they're going to get away with it? [Sun Sentinel via AP]
