The Butt of All Jokes

Some people walk around with blinders on. How this guy didn't see this coming......

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. (ouch!)

"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." (gotcha!)

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." (really, who woulda thunk?)

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. (eew, think about waking up in the middle of the night with one crawling across you!)

I would imagine this guy will be a bit more observant before plopping himself down on the john from now on.

What a pain in the balls.

Ever been to a baseball game, where the pitcher takes a line drive to the groin, and you see every guy in the stands ever-so-subtlely hunch forward, like a sympathetic pregnancy contraction? ... That's me right now.

how much you wanna bet that the guy was thrilled when he first stood up and saw something really long hanging from his crotch? if not for the pain, he would have walked around bragging. if only it hadn't been yellow.

lol @ indy609!

indy - I kind of had the same reaction but in a girly way!

nonnie - the image I concocted in my head from your comment is actually not very pleasant. Ooooh, I gotta think of something different. :-)

Yikes, it makes me glad I'm not a man!!

My grandpa got bitten in the ass by a rabid skunk that was hanging out in the outhouse hole one night (before I was born). I imagine that was quite a shock too.

OMG!! At first I responded with a loud laugh HPG, but then I noticed you said "rabid". What happened to him?

He got the stomach shots and was OK. Stomach shots are NO FUN. I've had them too. I got bitten by a cat and they didn't know if it was rabid, so they gave me a rabies shot the first day, while they were testing the cat. He turned out not to have rabies, so I didn't have to keep taking the shots.
