Ouch! Snake Bites Israeli Man on Penis

A man in northern Israel was reportedly bitten on the penis by a snake while sitting on the toilet Friday night.

The unidentified man, who was visiting his parents in the Galilee town of Nofit, was rushed to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa after he reported feeling a burning sensation and seeing a snake in the toilet, a correlation he is reported to have felt uneasy about, according to the Times of Israel.

Tests revealed that the snake was not poisonous, though according to the hospital “there will undoubtedly be bite marks in the area in question.”
