This is the reason

that I hate bananas.

Really, the frog queen has not eaten a banana since reading a Ripley's Believe or Not comic as a kid....had some terrifying story about spiders and if all spider stories were not terrifying.

Why did I belive the story?  I took the book at its word....I was ten and raised by nuns....beliveing what you read was part of the brain washing.

Stay safe oranges.


  1. Funny, I just ate one. A banana, I mean, not a spider.

  2. Actually orange groves are the favorite hangout of the Banana Spider here in FL. I'm not afraid of spiders but these things are so big and ugly they freak me out a bit. Maybe Apples are safe?

    1. Great.....there are spiders everywhere!

      Apples it is!


  3. I prefer to bag my own nanners, thank you very much!

  4. must remember to be very careful when picking out bananas from now on (and i never by bagged ones!) tee hee


  5. That would be so score, free giant banana spider with every purchase?

    I would take it home and make it my pet, and hug it and kiss it and love it forever and ever.

  6. Pears and red apples, all the way.

  7. I am glad I don't like bananas.
    My mother used to work in a craft supply factory and she said they had tons of spiders in the supplies that came from foreign countries, especially on the fake flowers. Now every time I pass some in a store I imagine them crawling with arachnids and quickly get away from them. lol

  8. I LOVE that even though you have... uh, *issues* with spiders, you post about them often! Good girl, facing your fear! PS these kinds of spiders like hanging out in car visors once in a while... in tropical cities, numerous accidents have been attributed to this little surprise passenger dropping onto a driver's lap.
    And yuck, I hate bananas anyway.

  9. One thing about living in Canada is that nothing this creepy can survive the winter...phew!
