Still more "Snakes on a Plane" - new slang arises

Let's hear it for the speed by which the Internet compounds (and confounds) our vocabulary. I've been informed -- and even found sources! -- that it is now a part of American slang to use the phrase "snakes on a plane" to mean one of the following:

1. Sh*t happens. (Same old sh*t; I've got it covered.)

2. I've got way too much sh*t happening right now.

3. That's so obvious that it's somehow cool anyway.

In most ways, the entire phrase can be a substitute for "sh*t," in all of its adjective, adverb and expletive glory.
