In case your travel anxiety isn’t bad enough

Python_2 Many people fear both flying and snakes. That’s one reason Snakes On a Plane bombed. (Also, it sucked.) Fast forward about a year: The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium posts this admittedly eye-catching “wallscape” in the Port Columbus Airport. It shows an image of the zoo’s 24-foot-long, 300-pound reticulated python, supposedly the largest such specimen on earth. The python’s name is “Fluffy.” In the presumably Photoshopped photo, it just ate someone’s luggage. Don’t tell Skybus Airlines—they’ll plaster the scaly fiend across the fuselage and spark reports of winged serpents over Ohio.
