Zack: Eat your heart out, every video game ever. Fiend Folio just took spider monsters to the next level.
Steve: More legs truly does equal more horror.
Zack: "We already have giant spiders and spider swarms and poison spiders and spider centaur dudes. I think we need to take it to the next level. All-legs spider."
Steve: Special attack is to get under your blanket when you're in bed and wait until right as you're about to fall asleep and then run out from under the blanket and scurry across your face.Zack: I was dropping sewer pigs in the boom bucket a couple days ago, reading a copy of the novelization of Smoking Aces, and a spider must have gotten into my hair. Right as I get to the part where there is a 28-page gunfight a spider runs across my glasses.
Steve: What did you do?
Zack: The only thing I could do: I died. I am dead. I am a ghost typing this.
Steve: You're not a ghost.
Zack: But you can't prove I'm not a ghost.
Steve: Well you can't prove I'M not a ghost.
Zack: Yes, I can, because all ghosts have the power to sense one another and I know you're not a ghost.

Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
