Professor Chester Turley, or Snake Jailbird, also known as Professor Jailbird and Detention Bird and Albert Knickerbocker Aloysius Snake is a recidivist criminal, always getting arrested but rarely appearing to stay in jail. He speaks with a "Valley Boy" accent. He is partial to fast cars and fast women, and has a knack for reckless abandon.
In a documentary by Declan Desmond showing the pasts of several Springfield citizens, a 13-year-old Snake is called "Detention Bird" by a 16-year-old Clancy Wiggum.
Snake referred to himself as "Professor Jailbird"; it was also revealed that he was formerly an idealistic Indiana Jones-type archaeologist, until Moe stole the Mayan gold coins, that he had discovered and was going to donate to the museum, and he decided to take his revenge out on society (convenience stores).
It is stated that Snake had previously spend time in a juvenile facility, suggesting he was a criminal before being an archaeologist.
Snake (as well as Otto) was the one responsible for ruining Spinal Tap's concert.
Snake's real name is revealed to be Chester Turley on a list of Springfield citizens taking revenge on Mr. Burns.
Snake is always seen getting arrested, but never appearing to stay in prison. He speaks with a "Valley Boy" accent and keeps a zippo lighter rolled up in his sleeve. Snake has light brown hair. He is also 43 years old. His occupation is a criminal and a former professor and archaeologist. Snake is partial to fast cars and fast women, and has a knack for reckless abandon.
Snake's car's name is "Lil' Bandit," which is a 1969 Dodge Charger. It could be a reference to James Dean's so-called possessed car the "Li'l Bastard." It should be noted that the Lil' Bandit's horn plays the opening line of the tune Dixie, similar to The General Lee from the The Dukes of Hazzard.
