A spider that nested in the ear of a Swedish woman was discovered and removed alive after 27 days.

The black spider, "the size of a thumbnail", crept into the woman's ear while she was sleeping and went undiscovered for almost a month, Swedish tabloid Expressen reported Wednesday.

The woman, whose name was not disclosed, told the paper that she at first experienced "a slight loss of hearing" and assumed that she had a build-up of wax.

But when she heard "a scratching sound" in her ear she decided to go to the pharmacy to buy a cleanser to wash out her ear cavity.

When she did so, the spider was flushed out alive and crawled away.

The woman recalled having seen a spider on her bed in November, 27 days earlier.

I believe I already harassed the iminent Mr. Fridge in Team with this story.

Best quote, from someone else was:

"I hate just about everything about this story."

Not a day goes by at any urban ER that people don't come in with cockroaches in the ear canal. We would gently put in sterile mineral oil, wait a while, and then suction and irrigate them out.

NASTY!!!

I get it tho...Uh-huh.

Many years ago on the midwatch during a field operation at Pendleton down at Red Beach, one of my guys, who had been dozing between "attacks" by the BGs (We were playing defense then.), sat bolt upright and began yelling! . There was this fucking big TARANTULA crawling over the sand bags... The damn spider had crawled over him...AND MAYBE ME TOO!!! as it transited peacefully out of our fighting hole.

I swear, if he'd had any live ammo and no BFA...he's have started fucking WW III!

I didn't know whether to piss my pants laughing or puke. I just told him to STFU.

Obviously you were receiving too many rations, or you would have eaten the ant alive!
