Escaped Cobra's Sticky End

Remember the story about the escaped cobra that has got dwellers of a German apartment building in a bind? It has been caught (dead unfortunately) with double-sided sticky tape:

In their efforts to locate the snake, authorities stripped the owner's flat bare, ripping out walls and floorboards and evacuating the building.

The 30cm (12in) monocled cobra was eventually caught on double-sided sticky tape laid by the fire brigade.

The 19-year-old owner now reportedly faces 100,000 euros (£88,000) in costs. [...] "Everything has had a happy end," a spokesman for the town of Muelheim in western Germany said. "Not for the snake but for us."

The story just oozed morons. The kid for buying the snake. The kid again for losing it. The building owner for panicking and having the place ripped up. The authorities who didn't try the sticky tape first. The authorities again for not fumigating the building. Etc etc.
