NEWS OF THE WEIRD

NOT AN URBAN LEGEND

Posted:

A county official in Portland, Ore., said his office gets "20 to 30 calls" annually about rats in toilets. In March, Daniel Powers reported he spotted the "little guy with beady eyes" looking up at him. The problem is more severe in India, where an emergency crew rushed to Vipul Desai's Mumbai-area home in February to take a 6-foot cobra from the toilet (but not before it "repeatedly" popped its head out, terrorizing Desai's wife and daughter). A wildlife rescue association team flooded the toilet, grabbed the snake and released it in the forest.
