Toilet Snakes are Real!
This is EXACTLY the sort of thing that I worry about.
On Monday, Brooklyn resident Nadege Brunacci felt the need to pay an early-morning visit to the bathroom. She'd finished her business and was washing her hands when she happened to look down at the toilet. There, looking back at her, was a seven-foot python!
(I'm impressed Ms. Brunacci kept her cool, but I wonder what would have happened if she'd "discovered" the snake just a few seconds earlier.)
After slamming the toilet lid and weighing it down with a heavy box, Brunacci waited for the Fire Department to arrive. New York's Bravest were forced to cut through the pipes in a neighboring apartment to capture the snake, which had slithered out of sight. Nobody knows where the snake came from. Let's just hope there aren't more of them lurking in New York's sewers!
