Sam the snake is a charmer!

The trouble began when a customer found not only cash but also a snake waiting for him at the ATM machine in Spain. Eek!

All's well that ends well, though. Local authorities were called and released the snake from the machine's cash-dispensing mechanism. They then transported him to an animal shelter.

The world has seen the story from the perspective of the humans involved in this situation. Now The Spoof brings you the story from the viewpoint of the snake. A reporter knowledgeable in snake talk was dispatched to the animal shelter to get the first interview and file a report.

Sam the snake said he survived the ordeal in good spirits, asking the reporter, "What's the big deal?" and pointing out, "I was just picking up a few bucks from my bank account."

He's happy in his new home and was grateful for the free transportation (no moving expenses!) to get him there. It amazed him that one little snake like himself could cause such a ruckus, especially when people seem totally oblivious to the danger of so many unethical bankers (Sam calls them "human vipers") hanging around trying to grab their money. "I was minding my own business and only there to collect my own funds," the snake told the reporter, "not to gyp anyone else out of theirs."

Sam concluded the interview by saying, "Have to admit I enjoyed the whole episode. It gave me a good laugh. And as comedian Milton Berle once said: Laughter is an instant vacation."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
