Snake On a Plane Joins the Pantheon of Slang

August 18th, 2006 | by Mike |

While working on today’s Kate Beckinsale and Friends article, I ran across some new slang at the Urban Dictionary that caught my eye:

snakes on a plane

A simple existential observation that has the same meaning as “Whaddya gonna do?” or “Shit Happens”. Taken from the upcoming Samuel L. Jackson movie of the same name, and immortilised by screenwriter Josh Friedman on his blog post of Wednesday, August 17, 2005.

Guy 1: (irate) Dude, you just ran into the back of my SUV!

Guy 2: (calm) Snakes on a plane man. Snakes on a plane.

This is just the first definition of what “snakes on a plane” means with four more pages of definitions following it, though it is the best and the one I will chose to follow. I hope you all do the same.
