The Ten Habits of Highly Successful Criminals is a book by Snake Jailbird. It is a "how-to" guide for people pursuing a criminal career.
After Bart and Gina Vendetti had escaped from the Springfield Juvenile Correctional Facility, Channel 6 News covered the story of their escape. Kent Brockman asked Snake for his thoughts on the situation. Snake said that "if they are smart, they will avoid the main roads", as he had written in his new book. He then showed a copy of the book to the camera.
Behind the laughter
The title of the book is a parody of the self-help book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
