Snakes Alive!

A sweaterful of snakes was smuggled into Sweden.

Claim:   Snakes were smuggled inside a woman's bra.


TRUE


Origins:   There are some things normal people couldn't be paid to do:
Alert Snake customs officers noticed "something weird" about a woman's bosom. On further investigation, they found 65 baby snakes in her bra. The national news agency TT reported Thursday that the 42-year-old woman, who was not identified, told the officers that she intended to start a reptile farm.

The reptiles were found after a body search. In addition to the baby grass snakes, six lizards were crawling around under her blouse, TT reported. The woman, who was arrested on arrival in southern Sweden, was being prosecuted for smuggling at the regional court in Malmo, TT said.

The fate of the reptiles was not disclosed.
