Where is Samuel L. Jackson when you need him?

A tiny Mandarin Rat Snake was found in the passenger cabin of a Quatas airliner Monday, prompting the company to cancel the flight and put all passengers up at a local airport while they tracked down a replacement jet.

The 20-centimeter, mildly venomous animal was eventually apprehended and taken by quarantine officials for analysis.

"The Department of Agriculture is looking into how the snake came to be on the plane, but isn't able to speculate at this time," the Department said in a statement.

So not exactly stuff of horror movie legend, but still. It's nice to know someone got that mother effin snake off that mother effin plane. It could have caused some damage.
