This may occasionally scare the you-know-what out of you.
A Texas man’s journey to the lavatory changed into a nightmare after a snake allegedly slithered proper out of his rest room, as seen in a skin-crawling viral video with 2.three million views.
The clip was posted to Twitter on August 16 by CBS meteorologist Payton Malone, who claimed his good friend had recorded the revolting scene. “I always thought this was an irrational fear of mine . . . apparently not,” Malone wrote.
Certainly, the freaky 30-second footage exhibits the mottled serpent creeping out of the bowl whereas the videographer coaxes it together with a golf membership. We simply hope the poor soul wasn’t on the john when he found it.
Both approach, the “plumber’s snake” had social-media ophidiophobes heading for the hills.
“I would have a new bathroom,” tweeted one aghast commenter of the herpetological horror present.
Some Twitter wits joked that the inter-loo-per was a certain signal of the apocalypse.
“Whoa hold on toilet snakes aren’t on the 2020 schedule until October,” quipped one social-media comic. “August was fire tornado month, September is machine gun potatoes. The toilet snakes are early!”
One other shared an analogous story from one of their dad’s co-workers, who had a venomous copperhead snake “bump his testicles when he was on the toilet. He jumped up, ran out of the room, grabbed his firearm . . . & blew the hell out of his toilet & shower.”
It’s unclear what species this explicit privacy-violating reptile is, though some commenters have speculated that it’s a Nice Plains Ratsnake, a nonvenomous serpent native to the south central United States. Malone has since confirmed to NDTV that the snake was certainly innocent, and was launched safely outdoors after being captured.
Naturally, some Twitter skeptics have questioned the video’s veracity with one even speculating the snake was “placed in the toilet.”
Nonetheless, this wouldn’t be the primary time a serpent has surfaced in somebody’s commode. In January, a Thai lady’s worst fears got here true after she was bitten by a snake whereas sitting on the throne.
