What’s better than having a tarantula? Most of us would answer “being completely free of tarantulas,” but somebody on Facebook is hoping the answer is “three thousand tarantulas.” The Daily Dot has posted a screenshot of the advertisement, which is only for people “serious about wanting a LOT of spiders,” so all of you casual spider investors can shove off, thanks.
While it could easily be hoax, the ad raises more questions than it answers. Who abandoned 3,000 tarantulas in the first place? Are these organically grown, fair-trade spiders? What’s the layaway policy? Are there any radioactive ones? Do they taste good with mustard? And, most importantly, why isn’t this on Craigslist?
