New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission has had it with these motherfucking snakes in its motherfucking cabs. A YouTube prankster could lose his hack license after freaking out passengers with a rented python.
Part-time cabbie and standup comedian Jimmy Failla drove around with the 14-foot Burmese python last week to create a "shock video" and promote his new book.
"This was monumentally poor judgment on the driver's part, and we are clearly going to actively question this person's suitability to continue holding a TLC license," said a TLC spokesman.
He's also under fire from PETA for subjecting the snake to screaming passengers in an enclosed space.
"The snake was handled with the utmost compassion and consideration by a licensed snake handler and the team took multiple shooting breaks to make sure the snake was relaxed," Failla responded, through his publicist.
