Overanalysis kills humor

Well, but I am working with cobweb spiders that don’t build the canonical symmetrical orb web, so it could be right. But then again, cobwebs do have rules and patterns that the spiders use to build them, so it isn’t right for, for instance, Parasteatoda either…oh god. My latest obsession is ruining the Far Side for me!

    Is it true that some scientist exposed spiders to cannabis smoke ?
    The result is said to have been like the web in the cartoon .
    I imagine the scientists looked a bit like this .

    You’re not bothered by the spider’s incorrect body? You’re not overanalyzing enough!

    @2 Thanks for the link ,i wonder why that guy was so annoyed at the times spiders chose to spin their webs ?
