A teaser ran today on KDKA about the brown recluse spider being found here in the Burgh.
Having lived in Texas for four years while I attended college, I can tell you from my experience that the brown recluse spider is really Satan in spider form. This evil bitch will bite you and then your skin will form a ball of puss and then your skin will rot away. And then the muscle under the skin will rot away. Rot, I tell you.
I had a friend that got bit on the leg and after it was all said and done, she now has a hole under her skin. A hole, I tell you.
Another woman that worked on campus got bit on the eye. Her eyeball rotted away. Her eyeball, I tell you!
If you find a brown recluse in your house, do I think that if you stepped on that thing, then took your broom and bashed it six times, then had your dog chew it up and spit it out, then went and got your gun and shot the spider at point blank range, then scooped up the remains and put in in your blender on puree, that it would be overkill?
No. No I do not. In fact if you then put the pureed remains down the sink and turned the disposal on, I would say that is justaboutenough’okill.
