What is it with this nudist colony and spiders?

Postby knapplc » Tue Apr 04, 2006 12:36 pm

It was just over two months ago when dream_017 posted this article about a man who broke his leg kicking a spider at this nudist colony in Australia (referenced at the end of this article).

Well, the spiders have struck again...

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A red-faced Australian nudist who tried to set fire to what he thought was a deadly funnel web spider's nest ended up with badly burned buttocks, emergency officials said Monday.

The 56-year-old man was at a nudist colony near Bowral, about 60 miles southwest of Sydney, Sunday when he spotted what he believed to be a funnel web spider hole.

Ambulance workers, including a helicopter crew, were called to the scene after the man poured petrol down the hole and then lit a match in an attempt to kill the offending arachnid.

"The exploding gasoline fumes left the man with burns to 18 percent of his body, on the upper leg and buttocks," the NRMA Careflight helicopter rescue service said in a statement.

It said the man's lack of clothing probably contributed to the extent of his burns.

"The fate of the bunkered spider was unknown, although other guests at the resort thought it was probably a harmless trapdoor spider and not a deadly funnel web," the statement said.

NRMA Careflight said it was called to a property in the same area in January when another man kicked a spider that was crawling up the wall of a friend's cabin. The man broke his leg in two places, it said.


This nudist colony must be cursed. That or it has some hot, hot, HOT Aussie chicks. Why else would people keep going there if it's over-run by these deadly spiders?

Funnel Web


Dosn't look too nice.

They are probably the most venomous aggressive spider in the world, all funnel web species should be treated as dangerous to humans, not just the Sydney or Northern tree dweller.

I seen a show about funnell web spiders a few months ago. They are nasty little buggers, and very toxic. I hate spiders with a passion.

Note to self -- if at a nudist colony and I see a spider, do not try to harm it, run as fast as you can in the opposite direction.

Exactly how stupid do you have to be to be working with Petrol and a match while nude?

From short and curly to red and bald?
