This comic strip was inspired by my wife. Yes, it is a cliche, but every woman I talk to seems to agree–death to spiders! I’m sure there many exceptions and maybe it is just another instance of us overcoming our evolutionary inclinations to kill things that might kill us. After all, even I have been surprised by rather large spiders on the ceiling. In most cases, I prefer to catch and release (and only pretend to kill them for the sake of my wife’s vengeance).
