REAL LIVE SNAKES ON AN ACTUAL PLANE!
Now, I haven't really talked about it much, but, like much of my Hollywood brethren, I have succumbed to the ecstatic hype surrounding the as-yet-unreleased Snakes on a Plane. I like to call the phenomenon "Snakes on a Plania!"
I don't know if anyone else has seen this yet news story yet, but I could hardly believe my eyes.
Yes, this is an actual news story.
No, I don't know why the headline writers couldn't come up with something better than: "Pilot Grabs Snake, Lands Plane". Keep in mind that it is a TV station in Louisville, Kentucky.
Still, I imagine they went through several drafts. My imagined reasons for their rejection are in parenthesis.
Pilot Chokes Snake As Plane Goes Down!
(not family-oriented enough)
Snake on Plane, But No Samuel L. Jackson In Sight!
(too promotional. also, Kentucky)
Flying Snake Not Deadly
(slightly misleading...and not dangerous-sounding enough)
TECHNORATI TAGS: Snakes on a Plane
PS- Next season of Assistant/Atlas begins this week. . . hey, it ain't 24, but at least it'll be fresh and better than 98% of summer television.
