Customs officials at the Cairo airport on Thursday had to thumb deep into their training manuals to the rarely-used section on what to do when Sam Jackson isn’t around and a passenger tries to bring live snakes onto a plane in his carryon luggage.

After asking the man to open his bag, the officials informed him that he would not be bringing those motherf’ing snakes on that motherf’ing plane… so to speak.

Thanks to the highly-trained officials’ expert execution of their duties, the Saudi-Arabia-bound flight was light some 700 serpentine stowaways, including 2 poisonous cobras.

The Egyptian, identified as Yahia Rahim Tulba, had planned on selling the snakes to Saudis, who apparently buy them as pets, for display purposes, or to sell to research centers. He was subsequently detained and accused of violating export laws and endangering the lives of other passengers.
