Barking spiders

Post by revsleestaxx » Fri Oct 23, 2009 7:54 pm

Barking spiders

The little gnome opened the door. He had two bowls in his hand. One with last nights stew and another with water.

He was greeted by a hoard of little creatures. All of them jumping up and down clambering for his attention, or was it the food?

Aww he knew this venture was a gold mine. Why, the humans all kept talking about these little creatures.

Why not breed them and sell them. He asked his gnome wife.

Who is going to want barking spiders? Was her only reply.

She did not stay. The smell was too much for her.

Yes, very nice. Rev fills me with feelings of drabble-inadequacy.

Tweedy, you didn't read down far enough in the WIKI to get the full impact of the Rev's cleverness...
Wikipedia entry wrote:Colloquial Use
The term barking spider is also used as a jocular reference to an audible instance of flatulence. [3] The term is something of a euphemism in this regard, and is often used to diffuse the awkwardness created by such an instance.
