Flack: Flack

1. Intrepid 10Yetis MD Andy Barr came over all Steve Irwin last week when a large snake, very possibly a python or boa constrictor, was discovered in his garden.

Despite being advised to call the RSPCA, Barr 'manned-up' and wrestled the serpent into a plastic container with his bare (OK gloved) hands before releasing it back into the wild. Upon posting photos of his conquest on Twitter, Barr was advised the suspected anaconda was, in fact, a grass snake.

2. Beattie Communications led a caravan of camels into London this week to mark the launch of easyJet's new route from Gatwick to Luxor. Famous Egyptian characters Tutankhamun, Cleopatra and The Mummy entertained commuters with camel racing and free rides, ensuring the only thing with the hump was the beasts themselves.

3. What a corker! Bottle PR lived up to its name this week when it celebrated PRWeek's 25th birthday by creating 25 special bottles of Champagne to mark the occasion. PRWeek will publish the best birthday cards, messages and photos received in a special supplement to mark our silver jubilee - the deadline is 20 August.
