Two great tastes that go great together

Spiders, and parasitic fungus infestations! And antlers attire! It is two of my favourite obsessions wrapped up neatly in one story and S.W.A.L.K. The too-good-to-be-trueness is so great as to lend weight to the "We are living in a computer simulation" theory of reality.
The only thing missing that would make life even more complete is a trebuchet. And a bicycle.

Also when I become world dictator, it will be mandatory on pain of condign punishment for any blog mentioning Cordyceps infestation to include a link to Attack of the Mushroom People.

thx Boing Boing.

That's a relief, for a minute, I thought it was a hypnostagspider.

So Boing Boing links to Super Punch, but not the specific story at Super Punch. We are left in the DARK. With fungal tarantula zombies.

In the northern hemisphere the parasitic fungus always grows downward and to the left.

Starting from Australia is the standard move, but South America isn't bad either.

The spider is disgusting. But the antlers...or coral is kinda neat. Geez, that's a freakish mashup. This is why I come to Riddled!

Omitting a "helping Jennifer" tag? Sloppy work, gents.

It *was* tagged but tags fell off during editing. I blame fish.

If the tags keep falling off, you need to get more serious.
