“LOOK OUT, THERE’S A HUGE EFFING SPIDER BEHIND YOU, OFFICER CLUELESS!” is what you think the person in the car would have yelled to the cop. Or a passerby. Or some kid on a bike. But no, everyone let the poor cop remain unaware of the giant arachnid creeping around behind him. People are the worst. Come to think of it, the driver in the car probably thought they’d get out of the ticket if the cop got eaten so it’s not like they were going to say anything.
But, hah, it’s just an optical illusion. CBS 11 in Dallas-Ft. Worth reported on this dashcam footage of what looked like a mutant spider deciding whether or not to venomize this poor patrol officer. In actuality, the spider was crawling across his cop car’s camera and merely superimposed over the street view. Neat, huh? It’s just in time for Halloween!
Honestly, though, there are a few Massachusetts State Troopers whom I wouldn’t mind seeing, if not eaten, at least licked by a giant spider. “Yes, I was very much aware of how fast I was going, Officer Statie, I’m a Masshole. It’s how we drive. What? Oh no, I didn’t hear anything behind you. That’s just some particular energetic shrubbery…”
