    "The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up into his bed.

    Out through the door he ran out of his head.

    Crashed through the door got cuts from the glass.

    The paramedics arrived and patched up his _____."

    That's one hell of a flight instinct.

    I ain't buying that story.

    Now if it was a "husband came home and I ran through the glass door" story, I'd buy it.

    "Authorities declined to identify the man because of the medical nature of the call."


    I know how he could be identified.

    One of my co-workers was distracted and accidentally walked through a safety glass main entrance door of our company, literally right through it. He was dressed in shorts and t shirt and flip flops.

    The door was gone. Only hardware and small pieces of glass were left on the ground. (different glass than in the story)

    The guards witnessed it and ran after him because they thought he must be injured. He panicked because the guards were chasing him, jumped into his car in the parking lot, and drove away.

    They snagged him coming into work the next morning and he didn't have a scratch on him. Nothing resulted from it. Just a funny story.


    We were a Physics Research group and had some odd guys. Not me of course.

    I remember he caused an enforcement of the proper dress code for us though. (Yeah, I know, never use a preposition to end a sentence with)

    I think I'm beginning to understand why Illinois has such harsh gun laws. They might need them. Can you imagine if this guy had a gun?

    He would have shot himself through the hand, perhaps.

    I'm thinking Ethel got an eyeful again.

    About 1974 the Johnson City Press-Chronicle (Johnson City TN) had a paragraph about a man treated in the E.R. for a shotgun wound to the foot. Quote:"___ stated he went to the bathroom where a spider got on his foot & he shot at it with a 16 gauge shotgun."
    Weather or not he got the spider was not stated. I have the clipping.

    How does this happen? Did he take the shotgun to the bathroom with him just in case? If he had to go get it, why not just shake the spider off? :dunno:

    I would've done the same thing if it were a snake. Then I would've set my house on fire to make sure it was dead.

    He was seen "running around North Fourth and East Poplar Street around 11 (Tuesday) morning” because of a spider in his bed?

    There's got to be some chemicals involved.

    That was not stated.
    When I tell this the FAQ's are:
    Did he hit it? Why did he has a shotgun in the can? These answers were not provided by the article.
    Most frequent comments:
    You're kidding!(nope:that's what the paper reported.) Must'a been a helluva spider (again;no details).
    They make some stout moonshine in them hills:I wonder if that was a factor. It COULD have been an outhouse (the article did not provide this detail) & spiders & snakes seek the warmth of the composting material but still....
