RADIO station LBC has apologised for employing an actual snake which had disguised itself as a woman.
The snake’s pretence was revealed when a producer glimpsed it in a mirror and realised he was the hypnotised slave of a serpent hissing insidious hatred.
An LBC spokesman said: “Not one of those big snakes. More small, brightly coloured, and highly venomous.
“It would coil around the microphone, whispering its poison, all the while maintaining it wasn’t a snake at all.
“Anyway, we got it on the end of a stick and got rid of it. So tune in for LBC’s Vile Slimy Toad hour every Monday to Thursday from 7pm.”
