Toilet Rat Bites Man’s Butt, Prompts City-Wide Scare

If you thought your toilet was a safe place to sit, think again. An unnamed resident of County Cork, Ireland, discovered this the hard way recently after he was bitten on his butt by a rat while using the toilet. The incident was discussed during a meeting of the Cork County Council. Councillor Noel Collins said, “The flooding resulted in another problem for residents, that of rat infestations, which really upset many families, mentally and physically. Indeed, one elederly gentleman suffered a rat bite to his posterior while using his toilet, and had to receive immediate medical attention. I would advise homeowners to keep their toilet seats down when not in use, and to watch their posteriors.” If that’s not the stuff of nightmares, we’re not sure what is. (Mashable)
