I bring you…well, let’s just say the headline NOT written is pretty damn obvious:

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Customs officers at Cairo’s airport have

detained a man bound for Saudi Arabia who was trying to smuggle 700

live snakes on a plane, airport authorities said.

The officers

were stunned when a passenger, identified as Yahia Rahim Tulba, told

them his carryon bag contained live snakes after he was asked to open


Tulba opened his bag to show the snakes to the police and

asked the officers, who held a safe distance, not to come close. Among

the various snakes, hidden in small cloth sacks, were two poisonous

cobras, authorities said.

My favorite part: “the value of the snakes were not immediately known.”

Weekend Update will appear as scheduled, but expect more of this haphazard kamikazeness here until Book Expo is a faded memory. And in the meantime, go to the Rap Sheet and get lots of book recommendations. I mean, lots of them.
