You can prevent the funnel web spider and most creatures from inhabiting your toilets by smearing a thin layer of vaseline or KY on the seat. Most effective when done at night.

Always check the bowl before you sit down. :P

I don't think I would be too thrilled if a snake popped out of my toilet. I mean, if I even dropped a bar of soap into the toilet, I think I would have a hard time touching it afterward.

It's the principle of it all.

If you accidently dropped a bar of soap into your toilet, would you comfortably pick it right out of the toilet and continue to wash your face with it? I'm guessing you would scrub down a few good layers then possibly consider to continue cleaning yourself with it.

I keep the lid down when the toilet isn't in use, cuts down on things like that happening, but yes I would rinse the soap under hot water for a while (so it could clean it's self), and if anything was in the toilet at the time I'd be throwing out the soap.

I just thought the quip was cute.

Not the first time I've heard of snakes showing up in toilet bowls. Back in Singapore there were two reported cases of a retic showing up in the toilet bowl. One case was about 9 storeys up in an apartment!
