This is not really news. Finding critters produce happens all the time. AW mom over-reacted. She could have just rinsed the spider down the garbage disposer and flipped the switch...but no...we had to call the zoo and local papers.

Thank you.

I thought maybe I had to stare at it for 30 seconds and wait for my eyes to cross.

Ack! No! Of course, you could just put it in a ziploc bag, microwave it, then test the radioactive spider theory......

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude, I would hit that. Yes. That was the question, right?

FTFA: "black widows typically have eight legs"

Really? REALLY? Do spiders REALLY typically have eight legs??? NO FARKING WAY!!!
 
2009-01-05 02:49:02 PM
FTA:

"A nest of yellow jackets is more dangerous than a black widow," he said.


Hmmm, the possibility of prolonged anaphylactic shock or exposure to a neurotoxin that is fatal in 5% of cases. I like those odds....
 
2009-01-05 02:49:05 PM
My grandparents place had black widows everywhere. I'd routinely pry the wooden lid off the old well (with a stick) to squash all the spiders.

Critters grow outside, sometimes on food. More at 10.

Well, if all you really know about spiders you learned from Arachnophobia, then it's not really that much of an overreaction. Listen, if I found a venomous spider in my food, I'd probably freak out too. I'd also likely call the grocery store. I may not call the newspapers, but who knows what I'd do? Maybe people might want to know that if they bought bananas from Kroger last week that there may now be a black widow running around their house, biting their kids and raping their wives and daughters.
 
2009-01-05 03:03:52 PM
Before Sunday, the zoo already had four black widows donated in recent months by other families in the area.

Who donates a spider? Either put it outside, or just kill it.

I live in SoCal, I get Black Widow spiders in my yard constantly. I have a exterminator come out every month to make sure they don't show up.

Farkin' hate those little farkers.

Whenever I see one, I commit nuclear war on their little worlds.

I had a pet black widow back in 3rd grade, so I'm really getting a kick out of these responses.

Weird... something similar happened a while ago with someone reaching into a watermelon bin at a grocery store, didn't it?
 
2009-01-05 03:17:18 PM
I had a room-mate who worked at a grocery store here in Toronto. He'd find a black widow in the grapes every few months and we'd keep them in a jar and feed them crickets.

I was bit by a Black Widow spider in October. Being in Delaware, they are not really common, and my wife had recently bought 2 varieties of grapes, which is where we believe my attacker came from.

Darn thing bit my leg while I was sleeping. Felt like a wasp sting, and I had a reaction to the venom. I was down a couple weeks with violent shakes; couldn't feed myself or barely walk.

There is no anti-venom like for snake bites. If you ever get bit, make sure your hospital or doctor gives you Prednosone (sp) which is a steroid. It was the only thing that helped me.

2 different hospitals I went to didn't know. Luckily I found my Doc's cell phone number (as it was a weekend). He was the only one that knew what to do.

Can I add a comma or an and/or to that because I disapprove of that one?

This article sounds familiar, but the last spider was dead and laid eggs.
