Is that a cobra in your pocket?
(via FreeRepublic) RTE News astounds with:
A passenger caused panic at an airport in Saudi Arabia after hundreds of live poisonous snakes escaped from his luggage.

It is reported that the cobras escaped from the man's suitcases after customs officers insisted the luggage was opened for a search.

Eyewitnesses estimate that around 300 snakes escaped before being killed by the authorities.
I wonder what part the Islamic judges cut off as punishment for smuggling poisonous snakes?
