I smiled when I heard that Harrods department store had hired their very own slithery security guard, in the shape of a deadly Egyptian cobra for the launch of their exclusive luxury haute couture shoe collection on Monday. The cobra’s task was to protect the luxury shoe collection which included a pair of ruby, sapphire and diamond encrusted sandals with a £62,000 price tag (Wow do people really pay that much for a pair of shoes!). A Harrods spokesman stated that the slithery security guard had just been hired for Monday’s launch and won’t be around all the time. I’m sure the collection was very secure. With a deadly snake like that around I’m sure everyone would be treading carefully!
