Travel advisory

Prof. Robert Jackson is the principal researcher into spider vision and behaviour down at Canterbury University so we can safely take his word for it:

Obviously there is a need for further study into whether bugs are also protected from jumping spider predation if they are dragging one of those Samsonite suitcases with the built-in wheels and the telescopic handle, that always get stuck in the tram tracks.

A bug with all its possessions in a shopping trolley is automatically safe because it will become invisible.

I'm just not going to go there.

I'm now interested in how one stalks a spitting spider.

You see?!?! He's not going to go on about hairy Penises!!
This is the trademark Riddled discernment and decency.
Not weirdness.

They made us read about spider eyes
My skin is crawling - c'mon you guys
So they switched the topic to hairy penis
Who's gonna read that? What? You mean US?
Misshapen skulls from vikings of myth
Antipodean insects? Just stop it, forthwith!
The worms in the tagline was a dead giveaway
It's only out of evil fascination I stay

I thought you'd LIKE the O RLY eye-spiders, mikey.

All poetry is intended as a lighthearted expression of rhyme and meter and in no way reflects the thoughts, views or opinions of mikey or any of his monkeys. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and without prejudice to the proceeding, it is important to bear in mind that mikey tends to being a grouchy old man who drinks too much and finds it amusing to yell at clouds.

But, that said, to be honest it ain't Orly's eyes I'm interested in...
