Spider Infested Banana


Warning: Those with arachnophobia or who have just eaten, do not read this story.

Maria Layton, a 43-year-old mother of two who lives in Bristol, U.K., recently discovered something truly disgusting living inside her store-bought bananas. Mrs. Layton found—gulp—deadly Brazilian Wandering Spiders in the fruit right before she was going to feed it to her daughter Siri (GROSS!).

"I'm glad it was me rather than Siri that opened the bag," Layton told U.K. press. "Siri asked for a banana. The first banana had a funny bit on it, so I got another one for her and that was when I found the massive spider cocoon."

Nope GIFs

"I remembered seeing a news story about them, so I Googled it. I went through the images and there was an image which looked very similar to mine," she added. "I was so scared. I don't like spiders at the best of times, but have read about the Brazilian Wandering Spiders and was very frightened about the potential threat. The spider cocoon started to unfurl so I put it in a sealed box and put it in the freezer as I read that is supposed to kill them."

After discovering the spiders, which can also cause painful four-hour erections in men, Layton went back to Tesco where she bought the bananas and complained (naturally).

All we know is we're never eating bananas again.
