British boy finds snake in cereal box
How non-poisonous serpent got there being probed
Updated: 11:04 a.m. ET May 4, 2005LONDON - A British boy tucking into his breakfast had a nasty surprise when he discovered a two-foot long snake inside his box of cereal.

Jordan Willett, 5, thought he had found a toy when the serpent -- a harmless corn snake -- slithered out of the packet of "Golden Puffs" his parents had bought from discount store Netto in Telford, central England.

"It was quite long and popped its head up. I've seen snakes on TV before but never in a box of cereal," he told the Daily Mail newspaper.

Netto said on Wednesday it was talking to its suppliers to review procedures and check on its stock.

"This does seem to be a bizarre incident but we are treating it seriously," said Netto trading director Clive Cooper.

Corn snakes, which feed on mice and birds, are commonly kept as pets around the world.

Silly, he was attracted to the scent of ground up mouse interspersed in the grain composing the cereal.

What the hell does Toucan Sam and a cobra have to do with a corn snake and Golden Puffs?

Why don't you look it up in your dictionary?

That was a very poor attempt at slamming me. Maybe you should explain what Toucan Sam and a cobra has to do with Golden Puffs and a corn snake.

In other news today, a fight broke out when two men began arguing about toucans.

Hell if I know, that's why I suggested the dictionary since you apparently have one. I'm a looser and don't own one.

Try taking a lighter approach once in a while.

Yup, and for a mere $112.57 you can use him for one speech only.

$112.57? That would leave me at or below poverty level. :harumph:

You are merely one joke. When you turn into an entire comedy routine, we can talk raised rates.

BTW - Leave 15% as my fee, thanks.

How can they live in frozen soil for months on end?

They can go into a state of hibernation for months on end - either in the ground or in a cereal box.
