Spider Stash Surprising


BANANA_SPIDER2_2848268b family

Britain…

Family forced to flee home after deadly spiders found in bananas.

Father Jamie Roberts, 31, found hundreds of potentially deadly spiders in a bunch of bananas bought at the local shop.

A family was forced to flee their home and have it fumigated after hundreds of potentially deadly spiders were found in a bunch of bananas bought at the local shop.

Jamie Roberts, 31, spotted white patches of what he thought was mould covering the fruit. However, on closer inspection, he saw tiny legs and realised the bananas were hiding a nest of spiders.

He soon discovered the creatures had spread to other parts of his home.

Mr Roberts, a civil servant, said: "I knew something was wrong because then I noticed the white patches were all over the window sill and the curtains and I could see tiny legs and realised they were spiders.”

"At that point, I wasn't too concerned because I thought they looked dead. I was freaked out but I started to sweep the patches into the bin but then they all started moving.”

"It was like something out of a horror film because suddenly the window sill was moving with hundreds of these spiders."

The family called pest control and was told to immediately leave the house while it was fumigated.

Mr Roberts, his wife Crystal, 30, and their two children Georgina, seven, and five-year-old son Joshua, left their home in Hednesford, Staffordshire, on February 24.

The spiders have not been officially identified but the
family believe they could have been the world's most poisonous spider, the Brazilian wandering spider.

Guinness World Records lists the species as the most toxic spider on earth and its venom is said to be 30 times more powerful than that of a rattlesnake.

Humans bitten by one can suffer an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, vomiting and eventual death.

Mrs Roberts, who works for HMRC, bought the pack of bananas from the OneStop store near their home.

A OneStop Stores spokesman said an investigation was under way, adding it arranged for the family to stay in a hotel while the fumigation took place.

Hmmm…

They found some spiders in fruit,
Those critters sure weren't cute,
They wanted the spiders to scoot.
Cause in England they couldn't shoot,

First they thought it was mold,
Within the bananas folds,
They thought the fruit was too old,
But then why was it sold?

They said the spiders were awful,
And may even be harmful,
They knew they had to be careful,
So they were really prayerful.

They called in some fumigators,
Who are real spider haters,
The things will be cleaned up later,
And sent back to the equator.

Burglar Bludgeoned by Brave Babes


Burglar gets after homeowner, daughter beat him with rolling pin, pan.

ALMONDBURY, England,

Feb. 20 (UPI) –

A British man was sentenced to 32 months in prison for a burglary during which he was beaten with a rolling pin and a pan by the homeowner and her daughter.

Adrian Gilroy, 29, pleaded guilty to breaking into the Almondbury home of Vena Lewis, 68, the Mirror reported.

Lewis was watching TV with her daughter, Tracy Dick, Sunday when they heard a noise in an upstairs bedroom.

The intruder tried to flee, but Lewis and Dick, armed with a rolling pin and a spaghetti pan, would not let him.

Dick hit Gilroy on the head with the pan while Lewis hit him across his legs with a rolling pin. They then pinned him to the floor and waited for police to arrive.

Acting Detective Inspector Ian Thornes commended the women’s bravery.

“It was a very brave effort by the two women. Both occupants are fit and well after their ordeal,” Thornes said. “However, we would issue cautionary advice about tackling intruders. Anyone who suspects they have an intruder in their house should ring 999 immediately.”

After the sentencing, Dick said: “I don’t feel like a hero and my body doesn’t feel like a hero. I was acting on instinct to protect my mother.”

Hmmm…

Two women were certainly brave,
The outcome could have been grave,
They captured a thief,
He suffered some grief,
It’s nothing that he would have craved.

The women went into quick action,
To their ultimate satisfaction,
They used a rolling pin,
Across his bony shins,
Falling was the guy’s reaction.

They then pinned him to the hard floor,
Then he could not steal anymore,
He was held for the cops,
They pulled out all the stops,
He didn’t know what was in store.
