A Florida woman got her taste buds and her Spidey sense tingling when she warmed up a can of ravioli that turned out to have a little bonus - in the form of a large spider.
Victoria Harrah says that she sat down to lunch earlier this week and, part way through the meal, bit into something unusually crunchy. After spitting out the pasta, she recalls, "Once I saw the legs, I started screaming, throwing up, saying to my fiance, 'Oh my God, Oh my God, I just ate a spider!'"
The folks at Chef Boy Ar Dee say they weren't trying out a new flavor, and plan to send a rep out to retrieve the can from Harrah for testing. (WFTV)
An Oregon man is in critical condition after emerging as the loser in a game of cat and mouse - played with a real cat and mouse.
The man, whose name was not released, tried to act as a knight in shining armor for a little rodent, which he managed to rescue from a stray cat only to come down with a severe case of bubonic plague for his trouble. He's being treated with antibiotics to bring down an extremely high fever.
A spokesman for Oregon's public health department said, "Taking a mouse out of a cat's mouth is probably not a good idea." (The Oregonian)
A Texas woman found out that the state's court system is run by folks with short fuses -- after she was arrested for asking a friend to send in a phony bomb threat to get the trial adjourned for the day.
Cynthia Ann Creed sent a text message to a pal saying "call the courthouse and tell them there's a bomb, pleeeeeease", leading to a total evacuation. To make things worse, she'd already been released from jury duty and was blocks away from the place by the time she sent the text.
Despite the fact that she later texted to say she was only kidding, she's being charged with giving a false report. (UPI)
