Snakes alive on WFAA8's Good Morning Texas in new rival to NBC5's famed leapin' lizard incident (amended)

Madcap WFAA8 just can't help itself lately. This latest on-air fiasco involves Good Morning Texas contributor Paige McCoy Smith and a small snake placed on her shoulder by a helpful employee.

Her ultra-hysterical reaction is the first serious D-FW contender to one of the greatest reptilian moments of all time. That of course would be former NBC5 anchor Michael Scott's up close and personal brush with a gecko on an August 2002 edition of DFW Today. It's now received more than one million youtube views, but McCoy Smith might someday be a contender.

(Note to readers: Turns out it was a fake snake in the form of a piece of video cable. My mistake. It still had the desired effect on a near-hysterical Smith.)

Below are the videos. Your comments are welcome. Does Good Morning Texas have a winner here?
