This is the kind of story that keeps ophidiophobics (those who fear snakes) up at night

Two young boys in New York were freaked right the frack out when they found a four and a half foot boa constrictor in their couch. The snake was likely released outside by a lazy owner and will be sent to a rehabilitation center.

I have no problem with snakes, but I imagine I'd hit the ceiling from fright if one slithered up next to me right now (I'm writing this on my couch at home).
