Normally, when you go for a little sit on the porcelain throne, your biggest worry is insufficient toilet roll or insufficient flush power.
But a slightly crappy botty/potty soon becomes insignificant when you realise there's a five foot king cobra lurking in the dirty waters below your helplessly exposed anus.
Unfortunately, for one person in Krabi, southern Thailand, this is exactly what they found in their toilet bowl. Fortunately, for this one person in Thailand, they had not yet exposed their anus when they noticed the serpent poking its head above the water.
The typically sneaky snake was spotted yesterday (Friday) morning and emergency services were called to the bungalow.
Footage shows the authorities using a snake-catching lasso pole to prise the animal from the toilet following a five minute struggle.

The cobra was then placed in a bag and released back into the wild several miles away by workers from a local rescue foundation.
Homeowner, Khun Gommaton, said he had lived in the property for three years with his wife and this was the first time there had ever been a snake inside the building.
The 50-year-old said: ''We have a fence around the house to keep out animals. The cobra has still come inside.
''There's a forest behind our home. It probably lived in there then came through the drain and appeared in the toilet.
''I feel better now the snake's gone. My wife's a bit nervous about going to the toilet though.''
That seems fair enough, to be honest. You certainly wouldn't be enjoying any lazy poos anytime soon, kicking back with your laptop and enjoying a nice long brown browse.
Incidentally, spending too long sitting around pushing is known to increase how prone you are to piles, so if you struggle with bum grapes, then you may want to consider getting a toilet snake installed.
Think I'm being facetious? Then you clearly haven't heard about the man in China whose rectum fell out after he spent half an hour playing with his phone on the shitter.
... Toilet snake not seeming like such a bad idea now, hey?
