Swallowed a Spider

When he’s suffering from writer’s block Sean Thomas – author of such classics of modern literature as this illuminating tome – likes to hang out in the Harry’s Place comments box spewing bile.

Told you. I really did eat a tarantula. And it really was OK, ish. Apart from the abdomen, which was leathery and bulging with spider excrement.

I thought my managing to keep raw horse meat sushi down for more than twenty minutes was heroic but if anyone has eaten anything more disgusting than leathery spider abdomen I’d be interested in hearing about it.
