You know you are in Australia when people are asked to catch and donate deadly funnel web spiders to the Australian Reptile Park because they are low on venom antidote. Seems due to the amount of people being bitten this summer, stocks are low. So, let me get this straight, so many people have been bitten by these deadly spiders they have run low on anti venom they want more people to catch them. What could possibly go wrong?

OK people, you might want to think twice about skinny dipping at Northland beach in New Zealand. Hmm, seems a skinny dipping Canadian tourist got bitten on his penis by a venomous katipo spider. Ewh ouch. The tourist isn’t sure when or where he got fanged but after going for a swim in the nude he fell asleep in the sand dunes and awoke to find an enormously swollen dick. No Loons, I know what you are thinking but he also suffered from a nasty red mark on his “shaft”, muscle pains, fever, headache and vomiting. The next morning he was still suffering from chest pains and heart palpitations so he got himself to hospital where he was given anti-venom. Meanwhile the spider was seen gargling with mouth wash!
