Doctor Finds Spiders in Boy's Ear
AP
ALBANY, Ore. (May 6) - These guys weren't exactly Snap, Crackle and Pop.

What began as a faint popping in a 9-year-old boy's ear - "like Rice Krispies" - ended up as an earache, and the doctor's diagnosis was that a pair of spiders made a home in the ear.

"They were walking on my eardrums," Jesse Courtney said.

One of the spiders was still alive after the doctor flushed the fourth-grader's left ear canal. His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear - "like Rice Krispies."

Dr. David Irvine said it looked like the boy had something in his ear when he examined him.

When he irrigated the ear, the first spider came out, dead. The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.

Jesse was given the spiders - now both dead - as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother has taken them to work.

"It was real interesting, 'cause, two spiders in my ear - what next?" Jesse said.

OK, how many have seen the Night Gallery episode where a man has an earwig crawl into his ear. After weeks of agony it crawls out, only for the man to learn that it was a female and had laid eggs in his ear. <shutter...>

"<shutter...>"

Would that be a camera shutter, a window shutter, or something else? If you write it, sir, then you choose it. What do you choose?

A shutter should not make one shudder should it?

JK! Perhaps I should shutter my mouth, but sometimes I just can't resist.

Those spiders? Like something out of Stephen King.
