Snakes in a What?

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I did see Snakes on a Plane on Friday with Ryan Walter and his friend. It was a funny movie. Mostly funny in that really stupid way in which nothing shown on the screen could ever happen in real life, but still funny to see how the characters reacted.

Then I see this:

Snakes on a Plane = funny. Some idiot letting two live rattlers loose in a theatre = not funny.


Yes, the National Ledger is reporting that two real live diamondback rattlesnakes (Crotalus atrox) were

…released in an Arizona theater during a showing of the new film, ‘Snakes on a Plane.’ The snakes were released after the film began rolling in the dark theater at the AMC Desert Ridge multi-plex at Tatum and the 101 in north Phoenix.

The two baby diamondbacks were actually slithering around the theater while the snakes on a plane were slithering around on screen with Samuel L. Jackson.

Wow. Imagine being in that theater. Tsk tsk (*Shakes head*).
