Saturday Smiles – Random stuff

Don’t   Mess with a Redback Spider!!
An   office receptionist got the shock of her life earlier this week when she  found a 70cm long snake entangled in the web of a deadly spider. Tania  Robertson, a receptionist at an electrical firm in Perth, came in to work  on Tuesday and spotted the sight next  to a desk in her office. The snake,  which had obviously died from the spider’s poisonous bite, was off the  ground and caught up in the web. 

Leon Lotz of the Arachnology Department at the National Museum said it was only  the second  time that he had heard of a snake getting caught in a spider’s  web. It is believed the snake got caught in the web on Monday night. But  it did not take the spider long to bite it. A red mark on the snake’s  stomach was evidence of where the spider had started  eating  it. 

Throughout Tuesday, the spider checked on her prey, but  on Wednesday she rolled it up and started spinning a web around it. She  also kept lifting it higher off  the ground, while continually snacking on  it.

An Army Ranger was deployed to Afghanistan. While he was stationed there he received a letter from his girlfriend. In the letter she  wrote that she had slept with two guys while he has been gone, she wanted to break up and requested that he send back her picture. The soldier did what any squared away soldier would do. He went around to all his buddies and collected all the unwanted photographs  of women. He then mailed about twenty five of the pictures to his girlfriend with the following note: “I’m sorry I can’t remember which one you are, but please take the one that belongs to you and send the rest back.”

This little old lady goes to the doctor and says, “Doctor I have this problem with passing gas, but it really doesn’t bother me too much. It never smells and it’s always silent. As a matter of fact I’ve passed gas at least 20 times since I’ve been here in your office. You didn’t know I was passing gas because it doesn’t smell and it’s silent.”
The doctor says “I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next week.”
The next week the lady goes back. “Doctor,” she says, “I don’t know what you gave me, but now my passing gas… although still silent, it stinks terribly.” “Good”, the doctor said, “now that we’ve cleared up your sinuses, we’ll start to work on your hearing.”

      1. I’ve slept in til 10.00am, and feeling a bit betterer this morning, thank you Raili. Have you been enjoying my poetry booklets, I’ve packed my beanie in for China 🇨🇳 yep, I think red is definitely the right colour for over there 😊😀

      2. She’s a cuddly girl, that’s for sure. I was on roster to do some volunteer work at lunchtime, I must not have looked very well, they sent me home 🙄😊

  1. Those last 2 stories are so funny! That first one? Omgosh. I could’ve gone my whole life without knowing about that spider and what it does to snakes! I don’t think we have snake eating spiders in the US but now I’m going to do some checking!
