Toilet snake attack: urban legend comes true?
TAIPEI (Reuters) – A Taiwanese man became a sitting target for a snake, which bit his penis as sat on the toilet at his rural home, local media reported on Monday.
"As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up," the China Times said. "When he looked down, he saw the big snake."
The 51-year-old man, from Nantou County, was under medical care with minor injuries, a director at Puli Christian Hospital said.
"As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go," the director, who declined to be named, said. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean."
Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile, reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl.
Snakes regularly enter rural homes in Taiwan and other sub-tropical regions of Asia.

^^Me, too! Although where I live there's not much chance of finding anything venomous in there. Maybe just a rabid squirrel or angry grizzly bear, haha.

A snake's mouth isn't always clean?! lol made me laugh. No doubt it would be unclean!
My goal is to be happy with my life.
One of my ex's lived in a very rural area and during extensive renovations of the house we had to use an old outside loo. I used to stand back and lift the lid with the toe of my boot in case a fucking big rat was lurking (they used to get ginormous ones around there that seemed to get into everything). No way was I sitting down until I knew that it was safe!
I lift the seat and check before moving ahead with my business, mainly because you hear stories about red back spiders lurking underneath, ready to chomp on your bottom.

I'm currently reading a book on Slash (Guns n Roses) and he mentions how once one of his snakes disappeared and turned up in the neighbour's toilet. He was staying in some sort of long-term let hotel.
