Only two feet long? What's with the hair-raising emoticon? [Wink] Good lord, that story is hilarious! A grown man nearly wets himself over a tiny little constrictor. Now, a venomous snake, that's a WHOLE different story...

If that was me, I'd definitely be screaming. I am abosulutely terrified of snakes. Even those horrible little green ones that look like string.

Aww, it was just a ittle-bitty baby! They're so cute at that size. [Wink]

Personally, I would love to find a python or a constrictor in a car, especially if no one claimed it. Those critters are spendy at the store.

Man: Hmm, frightfully nice day for a drive. Guess I'll take the old Antelope Freeway...what's this?

John Cleese: Hello, sir. Very good car you've got here, very roomy.

Man: What's a Python doing in my car?

John Cleese: Your car, sir? Your car? Are you telling me that you own this automobile?

Man: Yes! Yes, I do! Well, I mean I'm still making payments but--

John Cleese: 'Still making payments. Still making payments.' Oh, dear, that doesn't seem a very sound claim to ownership to me.

Michael Palin: Nor to me, squire.

Man: What? Two Pythons in my car?

John Cleese: There you go again with your 'my car' codswallop.

Eric Idle: Is this car a goer? Does it go? Know what I mean, know what I mean, nudge nudge, wink wink?

Man: Now see here, this is getting completely--

Terry Jones: And now for something completely different. Here is an animated car-driving-along-the-Antelope-Freeway segment by Terry Gilliam.

(Hilarity involving antique automobile cut-outs ensues)

Graham Chapman: Stop that! I'm dead.

Brad... wow, I can totally see that as a skit... except the part with Graham Chapman saying anything. [Wink] HYSTERICAL!
