Fiction is intruding on reality and the very fabric of existence is at risk of being rent in twain! Say "what?" again! Wait, no. Motherfucking snakes and planes and such!
Ninety passengers aboard an Egypt Air flight from Cairo to Kuwait could have used actor Samuel L. Jackson this week after a snake reportedly bit a Jordanian man who smuggled the reptile onboard... the incident forced the pilot to make an emergency landing in the Egyptian resort town of Al Ghardaqa on the Red Sea, according to The Jordan Times.
What, CNN? Actor Samuel L. Jackson? But why? Why would an actor be useful aboard a flight from Cairo to Kuwait with a snake on board? Won't somebody explain? Fear not — the Network has the background for those unfamiliar with the esoterica that is Snakes on a Plane, and why any of this is newsworthy to begin with:
Jackson's character in the movie "Snakes on a Plane" tries to figure out how to save the aircraft after crates of hyped-up serpents started killing the cast.
Ohhhh. Thanks, CNN. It all makes sense now.
