Arachnophobia is no joke to those who get that way. Kris Kringle is one, he goes nutzo over spiders. Especially big intelligent ones from the Vega system. He gets red-eyed murderous no matter how nice they are to him. He hunts them down and splatters their red iron based blood with cackling alacrity. (Vegan ‘spiders’ are closer to mammals than spiders. Morphic congruity gives them that spider look in their evolution.)
Pop looks cute when he’s traumatized.
If there is such a thing as Hell, it’s the home of spiders and is carpeted by snow.
Poke him with the stick and see if he moves!
Poor John. Now is not the time to show your fear!
same reaction from me
