The morning's "odd" and fun videos


Here's a few of the morning's top "odd" stories and top video.

In Texas, a Starbucks customer got a grande-sized surprise when he went into the store's bathroom. The man came face to face with a snake that was hanging out in the toilet. He thought it was fake, but when it moved he knew it was the real deal and alerted employees. His wife snapped a picture of it, experts say it's most likely a Texas rat snake and is not poisonous. They say rat snakes sometimes find their way into toilets and other plumbing.

Turning to California, a lightning strike knocked a man off his feet. He was using his cell phone to record the lighting on the horizon and ended up with more dramatic video than he bargained for. He is doing just fine and couldn't believe what happened. He says the sky above him was blue.

The final video people are talking about shows a French triathlete celebrating his first-place IRONMAN finish a little too early. It was at a race in Brazil. Perhaps counting his chickens before they hatch, he threw his hands in the air and nearly had to watch his Brazilian challenger take his top spot. He needed to scramble for first place, winning by a fraction of a second.
