A businessman was horrified when he found a huge venomous spider in a bottle of Tesco finest white wine.

Peter Berry, 66, said the two-inch long arachnid was spotted floating in the wine as a guest picked up the bottle from an ice bucket during a party.

Swallowing venom isn't harmful unless you have a cut in your mouth.

Not having it! He picked up the bottle in the store, carried it around,  placed it on the checkout to pay, picked it up, took it home, put it in an ice bucket and not once did he notice a spider in it until his niece spotted it?  someone is pulling a leg!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I think that market needs a total overhaul! How these people not notice? I might as well check my parents wine bottles for now on!

I'm sure it only improved the taste. "Mmm...vanilla... pear...and...and...Araneus! Brilliant!"

I love the sensationalist use of "venomous :w00t: :w00t:  spider" It's like saying the dog had teeth...

Allergenic proteins could be an issue if you consummed this spider and you were allergic but how rare is that?

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I don't like spiders and snakes but this is a little hard to swallow......

Spider wine is the new tequila.

Drunk wobbly gurgling spider!!!!! The spider only wanted to join in on the party.
The cheeky little bugger ended up getting the wine first and eating all the cake as well!

I once saw a woman returning an unopened bottle of wine at Fred Meyer- it had a house fly floating in it.
