    Spiders (generally): Eight legs (unless bitten by a radioactive one); lots of eyes; eats bugs, spiders, and the occasional mouse or hobbit; not known for its flying skills; sometimes toxic bites but doesn’t sting; builds world-wide webs.

    Wasps (generally): Six legs; etc., etc.; usually stings rather bites (except when eating you, usually after paralyzing you with its sting); over-friendly, tending to drown in your beer.

    If still unsure of the difference, try the drunken Hobbit test: If it wraps the Hobbit up in a silken cocoon and then eats the Hobbit, it’s a spider; or If it drowns in the dregs of the Hobbit’s beer, the Hobbit isn’t sufficiently drunk. Other results are inconclusive, albeit often indicate nearby Orcs.

    @2 Wasps don’t sit on your pillow during the night ,so when you can’t sleep and turn the TV on ,you turn your head slowly to the left , and you realise who is watching with you .
    Don’t Wasps help to pollinate flowers ?
    @4 Yes it does .One of the true heroes of the Natural world .

    Do spider-hunting wasps go super-Sayan or do they use some oriental fighting technique? “Ka-me-ha-me-ha, motherfucker!”
