Hubby’s favourite t-shirt has pictures of large Redback spiders all over it.
(Redback spiders – Latrodectus hasselti – are considered one of the most dangerous spiders in Australia. The Redback spider has a neurotoxic venom which is toxic to humans with bites causing severe pain).
He loves this shirt, but hasn’t worn it for a while.
So when Mr H saw his dad wearing the shirt last weekend, he madly started squealing and wildly gesticulating as only a 4 year old boy can.
“Maaaate” says Hubby “What’s the problem?”
“Arghhhh Spiders” says H. “They are REDNECK spiders Dad – they are soooo dangerous”.
Henceforth at Casa del Corymbia, the humble but deadly redback spider shall be known as a REDNECK spider.
