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

I was browsing my local bookstore when I spotted it.

"Snakes on a Plane" - the book.

"A snake jumped right out of this book like a spring-loaded projectile of venom and bit me right on the nose!" writes one Amazon reviewer. "It's just THAT intense!" ("7 of 7 people found this review helpful...") ("Add to baby registry!")

I think this photograph sums up my generation. It's caption?

"I'm enjoying Snakes on a Plane in Print."

UPDATE: The mysterious reader of the book has been identified! ("Since I didnít want to ruin the ending, Iím only going to read the first chapter....")

His blog post included an excerpt from the opening of the book - which drew the following reader responses.

"That first paragraph suffers from a severe lack of snakes."

"Also planes."

The film's merchandisers appear eager to capitalize on the movie's internet buzz. Also available:

Snakes on a Plane: The Album, whose product description notes that the best fan-produced songs are included on the enhanced portion of the CD.
