That spiky hairdo brings out your eyes

Spider: [Eyes plink, smiles] "You think so?" (said in Spiderese)


Julie B., I think he's also reaching out to shake one of your eight hands.

(but our 16-yr-old is going to have a FIT)

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:04 AM

Well, I can never visit this site again.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:06 AM

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEG!!!! Oh my GOSH! What did you do to me?! I almost peed myself, I swear. I got up and SCREAMED MY HEAD OFF for my boyfriend to come save me. D:

When I show it to him, do you know what he says?! The traitor says, and I quote: "It's actually kind of cute."

Why?????? /end sobbing

P.S. He's right, it's kind of cute BUT I STILL AM TERRIFIED OF IT!

P.P.S. What species of spider is this? Obviously from the 80's.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:15 AM

Eek! So frighteningly cute!

Terrifying never looked so good.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:21 AM

SQUISH IT! SQUISH IT NOW! I don't care if it looks like it's smiling. Ugh, spiders give me the creeps.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:22 AM

1st Reaction: Eeeeeeeek!
2nd Reaction: Awww, well that is cute a wee little spidery smiley face...
3rd Reaction: BUT BUT it's a SPIDER! Eeeeeeek!

(and no I wasn't tryin to pull a fast one on the "first" front I knew I wasn't the 1st to post) ;-)

Is it a jumping spider? What a cute boy!!!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:23 AM

Personally, I think it's cute but everybody's posts have me laughing so hard that my sides hurt.

Thanks - I needed that.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:24 AM

Awwwwww! She's just a cute widdle girl! I just wants to pets her!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:26 AM

Yay to Ugly Overload, too! They posted a whole series of gorgeous spider pics, including this one. This is the cutest. Not that I'd want him in my house.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:26 AM

I love you all, and I respect your right to post whatever you want on your blog...but could I get someone to e-mail me when this makes its way off the front page so I know it is safe to come back?

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:30 AM

Hee hee hee he's sooo happy! I <3 him!

I don't understand why everyone hates spiders so much. They eat mosquitos and flies and dust mites and everything you don't want in your house!

I can just hear his little beady eyes plinking away. :)

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:30 AM

Actually, one of my descriptions of spiders who are too large to be allowed to live are "It needed a haircut..." so, the googly eyes and smile is cute...but not cute enough to survive in my presence...*shiver*

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:30 AM

Cutest spidah evah!!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:32 AM

Cute as the dickens, as long as it's not moving...

Sure looks like a jumping spider to me. They're pretty cool - stubbular little guys with personality. They'll look you right in the eye and wave their legs around at you. I'm not a big fan of most spiders, but jumpers don't bother me.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:34 AM

Are stripy leg warmers still in fashion? For spiders, that is?

Von Zeppelin
 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:34 AM

I just have to concentrate on the eyes, the smile, and the spiky hairdo. If I look at any other part of it...*shiver*

Spiders really are the creepiest things, E.V.E.R.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:34 AM

We had a pet jumping spider named Rose.I don't remember what color her eyes were but she was almost as cute.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:36 AM

Hmm. I do believe this is the first time I've *ever* wanted to snorgle a spider.

**smooches top of head gently**

And such dazzling eyes!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:37 AM

OMG! I have never seen a spider like this. Smiley spidey! I want! He'd be most welcome in my house as long as he's not crawling on me or directly over my bed or anything.

What kind of spider is this though! I have never seen anything like it!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:38 AM

I guess I need more coffee, when I first saw the top half of the picture, I thought it was a frog. When I saw the whole picture and reealized it was a spider, it made a lot more sence.

Newspaper please.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:39 AM

Man.... I saw this on uglyoverload the other day and was going to send it in then thought...naaaahhhhh

Guess I should have huh


 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:39 AM

Please don't put spiders on the front page! I am so scared right now! Other bugs can be cute from a distance, but not a big, huge, scary spider! That one looks like it could take a bite outta me!

Is this the spider that frightened Miss Muffet?

Hon Glad
 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:44 AM

What's so scary about a spider? Last time I checked, I can still outrun one. Very cute. Probably won't pet it, but cute.

Ok, I just looked up "jumping spider" on wikipedia. Interesting little critters! This does resemble a couple of the pictures with the article. I love how it says they are "inquisitive" because thwy will actually approach a human hand instead of just running away. The jumping thing is a little disturbing though. :0

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:48 AM

this is cute in a murderous clown sort of way.

I second the desire to be alerted when this picture is no longer on the front page. it was a rather terrible surprise!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:56 AM

SO CUTE! OMG I can't believe that precious smile! REDUNK!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 08:56 AM

It's cute! And happy!

...but jumping? Eek! It might get in my hair! (personal nightmare, move along plz)

...reach for a newspaper? It looks big enough a horrific splat!

But this one's cute. And happy!

OMG!! Who knew spiders could be cute as well as facinating?? Little guy made me smile...:)

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:01 AM

OGM! I'm so glad tat you posted this on here!!! I saw it on uglyoverload.com and i didnt think that ANY of the spiders were ugly! I adore this one and giggle every time i see it! Thank you Meg!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:04 AM

The little guy looks like a Muppet or an extra from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

I can't decide if it's adorable or scary either.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:08 AM

Awww, Mr. Happy Spider is definitely cute. But I love jumping spiders, and I will play with them when I find them. If I find one on a walkway or other dangerous location I will move him/her to a safer place. Other spider species- not so much...

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:15 AM

pics like this make me happy, cause nature is pretty darned cool.

then if I saw that actually in front of me, I would back slowly away LOL

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:16 AM

His eyes are the same color as mine. I wonder if we're related...

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:17 AM

what a gorgeous critter! i was admiring the coloring and the generalized furriness that is prism-like.

i had a pet tarantula when i was young, a snake farm i built, too.

i HATE earthwormy things. all the rest? eh. just god's lil' critters...

that IS a particularly beautiful spider, though...

First time I ever considered a spider cute.
Now make it go away or I'll have to scream like a Japanese schoolgirl.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:20 AM

also, spiders are good. they eat pests and they don't bite unless challenged. like the black widow i sat on once. now that was a ganze megilla.

how could anyone hate anything with such a goofy expression. just makes me want to laugh and feed it a mosquito....

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:22 AM

@ mekkio: YES! foster's home...that slays me....

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:27 AM

Seriously people, it's a picture, a picture on the internet, it cannot hurt you. Can we all please just get a grip!


I have never seen such a fuzzy spider before, I don't know if I'd call her cute, but she does have a certain charm about her.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:31 AM

OMG!! Can't stand it!! Image burned into my eyes and now I have a SEVERE set of the creeps! Is there no way to warn those of us in the phobic category of such things? Cute or not, EWWWWW and EEEEEEK!!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:32 AM

AND FURTHERMORE!! i hereby proclaim it very bad to karma to actually murder spiders. if you should happen upon one in your dwelling, kindly catch it gently in a jar and release it outdoors.

that is what my mother always did and i think it made me a better person.

this does not apply to roaches.

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:35 AM

Ooooh, Sombody shooped him. I was wondering where his other eyes were!

 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:35 AM

Wow... creepy but fascinating. I never would have expected a spider to have green eyes.

JL Sigman
 |  Jan 12, 2009 at 09:40 AM

I was kinda wondering if it was a catcus with googly eyes stuck to it!!!

Not afraid of spidey pics, but spideys are *supposed* to know they're not allowed in my house. Bugs in general, actually.
