A compilation of spider facts

Brown spiders are poisonous. They crawl into your ears when you are asleep and walk into your brain. Then you have fits and die.

Kid pinches out cobweb on Sunday in India. Second kid (in Hindi): Uh-oh. Now Spider-Man will come out of the TV at 6 and take badla.
First kid: Or he won’t come cause I’ve destroyed his home and he’ll have to rebuild it.

  1. LOL!! The first brown spider one is SO Indian School, Bahrain. One that was handed down generation after generation. I wonder if they still have it.

  2. OMG!! The green legs!! I SO remember. LOL! But wasnt that Mrs Britto who had them? Or did the green legs remain constant and the teachers change every year?
