.......Won't Hurt You.
It is a peaceful Monday afternoon on the most arid state in the Commonwealth.
Adolf is recovering from the intense commercial activity of Saturday and Sunday, having watered his front lawn which is the sole oasis of green in an otherwise desolate desert called a street. Now settled with a cigar and a lovely drop of red the cool vespers are being enjoyed.
Suddenly there is a commotion out the back.
The Cook has been sitting for the last hour or so on one of those exquisite white plastic moulded chairs, reading a book.
"Jeesus! I just turned the chair over to brush off the cobwebs and there was a bloody red back spider."
Adolf, ever the solicitous and dutiful husband, inquired - "Did it bite you on the arse ---------- Dear?
The reply was not for tender ears.

They are more scared of you than you are of them. If you just leave the poor little buggers alone they will not harm you.
