It Could Happen to You

Well, probably not, because unlike this person I'm sure Ellen would know how to properly pack a snake:

A German woman sparked panic at her local post office when a 1.5-metre (5-foot) albino python escaped from a packet she had mailed, police said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old woman, who had sold the snake over the Internet, stuffed it in a package labelled "attention -- glass" to be sent to its new owner.

One of Ellen's snakes was in fact shipped to her, but it was very carefully packed and (as I recall) marked correctly as an animal. The snake inside was also less than 8 inches long.

Still, all around a great way to collect early on an inheritance. Now, where'd I put those stamps?
