You know how when you see a spider in your house you want nothing more than to just burn the place down and start over again in a new city. Especially when it’s one of those gigantic brown beggars that like to wait for you every morning in the bathtub and then they look all incensed when you crap down both legs instead of showering with him.
[Firefighters] were gobsmacked to discover that the fire started when a man sprayed a spider with an aerosol before setting it alight.
”Crews extinguished a small fire at the rear of the property, which was caused when the occupant tried to remove a spider after initially spraying it with an aerosol and then setting it alight.
”The flames then spread to the rest of the room.”
[Firefighters] urged members of the public to avoid using aerosols inappropriately – and added that there were ”more conventional ways” to get rid of spiders and insects.
You know what’s not clear here? Whether or not he did indeed kill the spider. I like to think that he did, but in all likelihood that spider probably made it out alive after setting fire to the poor idiots home.
