Arachnophobia Cure

I may be a Toad, but I hate spiders. Really, I'd prefer to find snakes, rats, roaches, just about anything else wandering freely through my home. Spiders terrify me, and I want them as far away from me as possible. I think this is a fairly common phobia, so this gift item should have wide appeal.

This Spider Catcher is an ingenious bit of design. It's all extremely low tech: no batteries required, it telescopes out for reaching the wily arachnid, and it uses a unique brush design to actually trap the beast for quick removal. This seems far more efficient than balancing on a bed, holding a wad of toilet paper in one hand, and hoping to god the thing doesn't fall on you. How do I know it works? Well, it seems much beloved by Australians. Australians, you see, know their spiders. Australia has more poisonous spiders, on a larger scale, than anywhere else on earth. If one of Australia's Huntsman spiders entered your home, you'd have to just charge it rent and leave it be. So if these brave people say this Spider Catcher works, I believe them.

All this means that this Catcher should do an excellent job on the wimpy Los Angeles spiders. Buy it at Remo for about $25 and cure that arachnophobia for good.

The thought of a live spider is scary so I guess better dead than alive. This is a very interesting gift idea! Totally unique. Now I just have to figure out who to give it to...maybe my husband...
