“Snakes on a Plane” Update: Could Terrorists Do This?

By Debbie Schlussel
Studio representatives sent me this link to the theme song from the upcoming thriller, “Snakes on a Plane,” opening August 18th. As I’ve written, the movie is about mobsters who bring and release poisonous snakes on a plane to kill a witness in a trial.
The song is okay, the video less so. But watch the part where the criminals sneak their snakes through airport security in a carry-on briefcase and a guitar case. I doubt this could happen in real life. But, hey, they let an Arab Muslim on the plane with hollowed out shoes, bomb components, and a Koran–just last week, even though he lied to the TSA screener.
For our TSA and FAM readers in the know, would it be at all possible to sneak snakes on a plane this way or some other way? It seems highly implausible/impossible and hard to believe. But do tell.

My first question is: why would terrorists sneak snakes on a plane?

There are snakes on planes every day. They just walk on with everybody else.

Why would terrorists? Lets start with, why would mobsters? There are 100 ways to kill someone more discrete than sneaking snakes onto a plane. The premise is retarted, forget the plausability.
