New Meaning to Carry On Luggage?

The associated press reports this day that customs officers at Cairo, Egypt detained a man attempting to board a flight to Saudi Arabia with approximately 700 live snakes in his possession. Among the critters were two poisonous cobras.

Yahia Rahim Tulba told the cops that the snakes are wanted by people to keep them in glass jars or as pets or for 'research' but the Egyptian cops, who have no doubt seen everything there is to see in the last 5,000 or so years that Egypt has been around, weren't having any and carted Tulba off to durance vile after the obligatory clapping him in irons.
