The man driven mad by spiders

6 posts in this topic

In hindsight, there were better places to hunker down for a kip. But James Payn wasn't to know that as he clambered into the goods van of a waiting freight train. He was just thankful he'd found somewhere to rest.

What's more, it seemed like he'd hit the hobo equivalent of the jackpot - the carriage was loaded with bananas. James cheerfully helped himself to a few, then drifted off to a contented sleep.

He was extremely lucky (relatively) that it wasn't the modern situation with the "hobo spider" (I don't think the name's significant is lost here) or "Brazilian wandering spider" which is exceedingly deadly and loves bananas, and occasionally pops up in grocery stores all over the world.
