You might be wondering why there’s a picture of a guy’s hand there. Well, it’s because the picture that this link will take you to, and for that matter, this link, are not for the faint of heart. And definitely not for Dindrane. Din? You hear me? Do NOT click on those links. And when you do it anyway, do NOT freaking blame me, okay?
Those links take you to pictures of orb spiders, captured by Stephen Fry on his “Would You Like Fry With That?” World Tour 2008. A comment on one is “Sorry it’s blurry: FEAR.” They are essentially Shelob’s tiny little cousins. Why is Stephen running around the world looking at stuff like orb spiders? Because he’s Stephen Goddamn Fry, intellectual powerhouse. And that’s What He Does.
Am I the only one who wants to read a novel where Stephen Fry saves the world, operating as a cross between James Bond, David Attenborough, Charles Morse from The Edge, and Peter Cook? I didn’t think so. If someone will get me the rights, I’ll do it for a very reasonable price.
