Officials have pulled a hissy fit after denouncing a man spotted wearing a huge snake instead of a face mask while riding a bus in Salford yesterday.
The man used the large reptile, which hung around his neck, as a face covering while boarding the Swinton to Manchester service at Salford precinct.
Shocked passengers stared in astonishment as the man – clearly making fun of coronavirus restrictions including the compulsory wearing of coverings on public transport in England – removed the snake from around his neck.
The reptile then wrapped itself around the hand rails as fellow bus riders described the surreal scene as ‘definitely entertaining’.
One passenger, who asked not to be named, said she initially thought the man was wearing a ‘funky mask’ before she spotted it slithering over the hand rails.
