Has your snake ever bitten itself?

My partner and I were feeding his new cornsnake today and the pinkies arm ended up out the corner of the snakes mouth. He didn't seem to realize that if he just pressed on, it would fold up, so he kept trying to reach around and get it. He was also using his body to try to brace and in doing so, he bit himself several times. I've never seen this happen before. Anyway, he went round and round and I was starting to worry that he would tire himself out but I hesitated to intervene. He finally got around the arm and of course it was smooth from there on, but I was just wondering how common this is?
