How To Cure Your Arachnophobia

This cartoon is dedicated to Ashley B., who asked for more cartoons about spiders (and to her sister, who doesn’t like spiders).

Today’s cartoon is drawn on four 3″ x 5″ sticky notes and pasted together to create a 3″ x 20″ cartoon.

    But all those pests are rent free slacker bums that feed off of anything they can get a hold of, they suck in the warmth of winter heat and cool air conditioning, never once offering to help pay a utility bill, die vermin die!

    Can’t I just call Billy The Exterminator and ask for some Pyrethrin? After all, according to Billy it’s the natural extract from chrysanthemum plants that will neutralize the spider and attack it’s immune system leaving them defenseless and unable to attack or bite, followed by certain death!

  24. Jenn says:

    This is genius! I totally didn’t see that end coming.

  25. MT says:

    Would have been a much better ending to the story if one night after living among them and gaining their trust, he massacres all of them in their sleep.

  27. Byte says:

    I know an old lady who swallowed a spider
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
    Perhaps she’ll die

    But that’s a story for another time… 🙂
