This may scare the you-know-what out of you.
A Texas man’s trip to the bathroom turned into a nightmare after a snake allegedly slithered right out of his toilet, as seen in a skin-crawling viral video with 2.3 million views.
The clip was posted to Twitter on August 16 by CBS meteorologist Payton Malone, who claimed his friend had recorded the revolting scene. “I always thought this was an irrational fear of mine . . . apparently not,” Malone wrote.
Indeed, the freaky 30-second footage shows the mottled serpent creeping out of the bowl while the videographer coaxes it along with a golf club. We just hope the poor soul wasn’t on the john when he discovered it.
Either way, 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 show.
Some Twitter wits joked that the inter-loo-per was a sure sign of the apocalypse.
“Whoa hold on toilet snakes aren’t on the 2020 schedule until October,” quipped one social-media comedian. “August was fire tornado month, September is machine gun potatoes. The toilet snakes are early!”
Another shared a similar 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 particular privacy-violating reptile is, although some commenters have speculated that it is a Great Plains Ratsnake, a nonvenomous serpent native to the south central United States. Malone has since confirmed to NDTV that the snake was indeed harmless, and was released safely outside after being captured.
Naturally, some Twitter skeptics have questioned the video’s veracity with one even speculating the snake was “placed in the toilet.”
However, this wouldn’t be the first time a serpent has surfaced in someone’s commode. In January, a Thai woman’s worst fears came true after she was bitten by a snake while sitting on the throne.
