  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Only in America! by Ken Dunn on 4 March 2011 6:22am
I've just read that Mazda are recalling thousands of their cars in North America because of ... a fire risk from spiders?!
Now, are these self combustible spiders or do they each have a box of matches?

That is... ridiculously amusing! How could spiders - apart from a 1/1000000000000 chance - cause fire?!

We read that, too! I mean really. It doesn't matter if the brakes don't work, as long as the spiders don't set fire to it? Yeah....okay......!

The NBC news anchor of the Today show, Matt Lauer, mentioned that spider webs could cause the fires.......spider man spider man does whatever a spider can!

Perhaps suicide spiders are a new form of terrorism on the rise... What's next? Kamikaze beetles?
