“Snakes, Home Runs and Snafu”

Snakes on a Plane” was almost renamed “Pacific Air Flight 121”, but Samuel L. Jackson fought to keep the original title.

A baseball player named John Miller hit a home run in his first at-bat, with the Yankees in 1966.  And he hit another one in his LAST at-bat, with the L.A. Dodgers in 1969.  And those were the only two home runs he hit in his whole career.

The word “snafu” was originally a military acronym.  It stands for “status nominal: all [effed] up.”
