Almost there...

Oy. It's always a struggle when new people join the world of email. My grandparents have had email for a couple of years now, and they still inevitably end up sending me ridiculous urban legends every few months. Today's selection involved a poisonous spider that lives under toilet seats. It was so plainly an urban legend on first read that I didn't even get past the first two sentences before heading over to Snopes. Sure enough, this was a rehash of the 1999 Butt Spider story with the North Florida variation. I thought that with age comes wisdom, but geez they're gullible. This explains a lot about how much they enjoy Rush Limbaugh, but it certainly doesn't make it any less scary that they vote without fail in every election. Yikes.
