The scene is the arrivals hall at the airport. Two customs officials are watching a line of people as they walk through the hall. One man is reading a book as he is walking. A snake has emerged from one of his trouser legs and has curled itself around the crutch of the man in front of him. Another snake has emerged from the other trouser leg and is curled around a pot plant which is being dragged along behind him. A third snake has come out of his fly and is curled around his arm.
