Have you ever carried a forbidden item on an airplane?

A snake on a plane from Cairo, Egypt to Kuwait forced an emergency landing in an Egyptian resort town on the Red Sea.

An Egyptian newspaper says a man who owns a reptile shop tried to carry on a cobra.

The cobra reportedly got out of its bag, bit the man on the hand and slithered under airplane seats.

The man refused treatment.

    No, but I get insulted every time any of we veterans get treated like terrorists at those silly security check points.
