It's..... The happiest blog on earth

As I've travelled through life, I've never found myself pausing to ask: How does "Urban Dictionary" define this phrase?

I'm actually not even sure what "Urban Dictionary" is, but they're one of Google's top matches for the phrase "Snakes on a Plane."

It was kind of interesting watching them going through the motions of a definition.

A simple existential observation that has the same meaning as "Whaddya gonna do?"

There's about four more examples on that page...

I've got my own definition. I play Quake III a lot, and am always switching in new goofy names for my avatar. ("You were fragged by...Gilligan!" "You were fragged by....a pwetty widdle girl.") Lately it's been "Snakes on a Plane."

And I have this fantasy that somehow through the games I've played, my lousy Quake-playing strategies will become immortalized.

"So our avatars were spawning in the red cathedral area, and suddenly there's all these grenades raining down from the high window. Some lamer was continuously firing grenade after grenade in the hopes that one would randomly hit us.

"So the floor of the cathedral is covered with grenades. Everywhere you step - boom! There's something bad there! It's, like, I dunno, what would you call that?"

It's like snakes on a plane, man.

Snakes on a plane....
