  8. Clearly the person before him withdrew 40 bucks and a snake, but forgot the snake. The real dilemma: do you take the free snake or turn it in to the police?

    All part of the new austerity measures.

    Was the cop giving the snake a concussion test?  “Follow my stick.”  Its weird, but a 45 second video?  Just pull the snake out of the ATM and lets get on with our day.

      Please, keep your anti-reptile comparisons to yourself.

    The cop is using the baton to keep the snake interested, so it doesn’t get bored and slither back inside the machine.  He’s probably waiting for the animal-control people to show up, and he’d like the snake to still be outside the machine when they arrive.

    “Just pull the snake out of the ATM”?  That’s how you turn a simple animal-control call into a medical evac.  

    I worked security for several years at an outdoor festival in snake territory, and every single snakebite case we had was the result of some idiot thinking he could just grab the snake, the way he (always a ‘he’!) had seen it done on the teevee.

    Is this the masterful plan to keep all the money in the banks?

  17. GregS says:

    What’s the problem? This was just a promotion by the bank to give out free snakes to randomly selected customers. Jeez, people will complain about anything!

    • Amy L Sacks says:

      …This was just a promotion by the band…

      As a name, Snakes In An ATM works at least as well as Panic At The Disco or Vampire Weekend.

    I wonder how many biblical end times blogs this story is featured on.

    …And I thought they only dispensed $20s…

  20. Nash Rambler says:

    Must’ve hit the “Snake” button in-between “Withdraw from Checking” and “Account Balance.”  Happens to me all the time.

  21. Guest says:

    I thought bankers jumped out windows?

  22. zombieprocess says:

    Bernie Madhoff escaped already?

  23. rationalist says:

    Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes? 

  24. Red Monk says:

    Talk about hidden fees.

  25. Robert Cruickshank says:

    Most ATMs add a fee, but you don’t usually get to see the adder.

  26. Guest says:

    I’ve seen snakes in a video at an ATM before… but they’re usually just out of camera shot and waiting for the victim to withdraw money.

  27. Reed 1GM says:

    Was the snake ok?  He looks trapped.

  28. Brewer_ME says:

    The poor snake is caught in the closing mechanism.  See how it’s body is squished?  Not saying this isn’t funny, but I do feel sorry for the snake.

    I keep thinking Quentin Tarantino is involved somehow. Just sayin’.
