Snake bites man's penis - only in Israel (?)

The headline above (only the part "Snake bites man's penis") was borrowed directly from the source: Israeli Ynet. Other, less uncouth media outfits choose to dress it up a bit, like UPI with its Snakes in a restroom send Israeli man to hospital. Which is very vague and imprecise: how many snakes? How exactly did they "send Israeli man" etc. No matter what you say, sometimes I prefer the uncouth directness.

The story as it's told by the Ynet is simple:

After going to restroom to relieve himself, man reports 'burning sensation on penis' as result of a small snake which slithered out of toilet, bit him in sensitive area. Snake reportedly not venomous, man feeling well.
Why would a snake behave in this belligerent manner? One has to dig deeper, but with our Elder's training it was a snap. Here it goes:
One of the paramedics said that the man claimed to have seen the snake before it slithered down the toilet, and according to him the snake was very small.
Now such attitude surely made the snake mad. And it resulted in an action which could be only described as natural in the circumstances.

Case closed.

I bet he described the snake as small to make his penis look bigger.

I suspect he may have laughed at the snake's small size...

You do recall the last time we returned from Israel and found a dead rat in the toilet? Couldn't lift the lid, apparently. No snakes around to "send him...to hospital." I've never figured out why he didn't just swim back down into the sewer.

Got disoriented, I guess.
