I have had it with these monkey fightin snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!!!

Sorry, I just had to quote the great (and edited) Samuel L. Jackson on this one.

Luckily, in this case, the python did not make its way on board the plane.

But, it was not for a lack of trying.

Over the weekend, TSA at Miami International Airport found a python hidden inside an external hard drive inside a piece of luggage.

TSA spokeswoman Sari Koshetz explained it all to the Miami Herald:

"The snake, that didn’t get on a plane thanks to our officers' diligent screening, had been artfully concealed inside the electronics of a hard drive and placed in a checked bag headed for a flight to Barbados.  Upon the TSA officer’s discovery of the organic mass, one of our TSA bomb experts was called into the baggage screening room to investigate the innards of the hard drive and that is when he discovered the mass was a live snake."

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services took possession of the snake and the passenger was fined.

Good try, bud.  Good try.


***WARNING - STRONG LANGUAGE***

We all have a TSA story.

They patted me down a little too much.

They made me go through the scan three times.

They took my snacks.

We've seen and heard a lot of crazy stories from a lot of our friends and family.

But, how many of you have heard a story about them spilling your mother's ashes all over your clothes?

Because that is exactly what happened to New York Giants defensive lineman A.J. Francis yesterday.

He posted a picture of it on Twitter, with a pretty sharp comment.

TSA tried to apologize, but Francis wasn't having it.

I don't know, his response is pretty understandable.
