Submission + - Snakes on a Quantas Plane! (

Timberwolf0122 writes: An Australian airliner was grounded after four baby pythons escaped from their container in the aircraft's hold.
The snakes, just six inches long, were among 12 Stimson's pythons being flown from Alice Springs to Melbourne.
At first it was thought the reptiles may have been eaten by the other snakes, but this was discounted after they were weighed on landing.
Mace Windu was unavailable for comment on account of him having enough of snakes on a Mother f'ng planes.

Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the "vox populi" now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.

God lives in my pocket, it's the only way I can explain how a simple piece of straight string can tie it's self into such a complex ball of knots, Kent Hovind told me that extra information (such as knots) can't form naturally and adding energy (by say walking) is destructive ergo god is in my pocket tangling all my strings. Bastard.
