Sssssucks to be you, man.

A man in Ghana claims he was using a public toilet when a 'big, black snake’ bit him on the tip of his penis on Wednesday.

Kwabena Nkrumah, 34, said the pain was intense, and that he ran out of the public toilet screaming, "Snake! Snake! Snake!" which in turn caused others using the facilities to panic and flee, according to Ghanaweb.com.

Nkrumah told a local radio program that he thought that the pain on his penis was normal, until he looked down and saw the snake.

The public toilet was reportedly "in a deplorable state," even without the snake problem.

Although this story is a rare exception, snake bites don't usually make the news. Men who bite snakes, on the other hand, can be pretty memorable.

Last year, a Nepalese man bit a cobra after it bit him first. He said he believed that biting the snake until it died would make him immune to the animal's venomous bite.

"A snake charmer told me that if a snake bites you, bite it until it is dead and nothing will happen to you," he told the BBC.
