ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

royaltrux, You’re sponsored? Nice.
It would really bother me if someone wore this shirt in my presence.
Your Honor, I had no choice but to beat him to a bloody pulp. He was covered in spiders.
Better covered in tarantulas than covered in bees.
How about tarantulas that are covered in bees?
I’d like the shirt better if the spiders were smaller. More realistic that way.
No, that’s the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.
Mother Nature can be one scary bitch!
Tarantula hawks are actually pretty harmless and quite beautiful. They’re curious and will follow you around, but they’re not normally aggressive. If you do manage to get yourself stung, they have the most painful sting of anything in the Western hemisphere, and apparently you’ll writhe around on the ground shrieking for ten minutes.
And…their size is based on the size of the tarantula that incubated them.
Tell a tarantula they’re pretty harmless. Just tell them quickly, before that wasp goes all ALIEN on them.
Beautiful? You’re one of those dirty arthropod lovers!
The spider panic defence?
Maybe I am forgetting something, but isn’t Dr. Jones’ Phobia focused on snakes? “Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?”
And for Professor Jones, Senior it was rats. So I don’t know what they accidentally the whole 40 cakes.
Ask Alfred Molina.
“Asps. Very dangerous. You go first.”
Delbert McClintock, infestation management. Always nice to meet a colleague.
More like a DT-shirt
Satipo didn’t like spiders. Dr Jones doesn’t like snakes.
You should go and see Maxime’s Blog, this guy is doing all kind of crazy geeky stuff.

They should make it with an especially itchy label, for full effect.
and in weird locations, not just the collar. I likey.
I did a Halloween costume a couple years ago where I stuck about 20 black plastic spiders to my torso and head. It took me about 30 minutes to put together. I was completely freaking people out. Some people couldn’t even talk to me. Eventually I took the spiders off my head just so I could join the party without people freaking out.
Why not post a picture? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1114555/4067136594_8fa7993253_b.jpg
oooh perfect passive-agressive christmas gift!
It should be Doctor Octopus’s phobia.
Did you see what I did there?
Indiana Jones was not afraid of spiders. It was snakes, from back when he was very young and hustling away from bad guys on a moving circus train and broke through the ceiling of the snake car. Having said that, I love spiders and would have a nice Mexican red knee already, but I cannot control the temperature and humidity in my house worth a damn. I am going to buy this shirt, you bet.
Hey WordPress: thanks for being the browser police. I haven’t updated to Firefox 6 point whatever because it doesn’t work with my anti-virus plug ins. Updating would actually be a worse security move than keeping version 5. But thanks for telling me that my browser is out of date every time I sign in to leave a comment here. Really appreciate it. Especially since Firefox is now putting out a new version every few weeks. Your diligence is exemplary.
no no no no no… just NO. I would probably hit someone for wearing that. It wouldn’t be on purpose – just reflex. I once climbed my roommate’s boyfriend when i saw a Huntsman while living in Australia. Just no. EEEEEEKKKKKKK.
