  • I've read about two people being bitten by pygmy rattlesnakes in WalMart outdoor centers.

    Evidently, the corporate philosophy involves venemous creepies and crawlies.

    This is a surprise?

    Thanks! That was hilarious.
  • I'd be far more concerned about the WalMart employee that handles the bananas than the possibility of a spider hiding in the banana box.

    Ah, that brings back memories. I probably last heard that on KCRW 25 years ago. Thanks.
  • Superior WalMart...

    There are still fat chicks, they just don't wear spandex and tube tops.
  • I understand the fear and concern. However, I believe safeguards do exist considering the number of bananas bought in this country without the surprise of a brazilian wandering spider in the bunch. I would think that if this happened to me, I would just deal with the store personally without going to the press. I bet if she brought that spider into the store, that would have gotten a response from the manager. Of course, now I'm gonna be a bit more paranoid about picking up bananas at the store.

    /get on the boat, the banana boat yea..ooooowwwwwwww
  • 90 percent sure it's a Brazilian wandering spider

    At least it didn't have pussy hair.

    I don't know about that. My daughter's friend quit after working 3 months in the produce department at the local market. She just couldn't handle the banana spiders that were in just about every shipment.
  • Terry wanted WalMart to know about what she found in order to protect other shoppers. She called on Tuesday to report the problem, but said the store manager never called her back. When she called the manager again, Terry said she was told there was nothing they could do.
    "I told them I'm not looking for anything," she said. "I'm looking for public awareness."
    The manager hung up on her, Terry said.
    She went to the Duluth NBC news station, Northland's News Center, which aired a story about the spider on Wednesday. That got WalMart's attention, which called Terry on Wednesday and took her statement about what happened.
    "They made me feel like they were doubting I bought the bananas," she said.


    "I'm an attention whore." I bet she uses hand sanitizer a lot too, and obsesses over the germiness of her kitchen counters.

    All I have to say is "Ewwwwwwwwww"
  • Wait, so they don't even know if it was a wandering spider and they still wrote an article on it? Why even bother waiting until any spider at all is found:

    NEWSFLASH!!: Somebody buys bananas at WalMart - story developing
  • You can buy bananas.

    Cheaply.

    In farking April in farking Wisconsin.

    Those poor white people.
  • Oh, I didn't even read far enough.

    The Terrys said they're now considering legal action.
    "Had WalMart stepped up to the plate, we never would have called the news," Sheila Terry said. "But, would you want that in your car with you? Would you want that in your home? What if it had bit my dog or bit me?"

    That's something I've always been a bit confused about. It seems like every other tropical fruit is pay-out-the-ass expensive and seasonal, but bananas are cheaper than in-season, local fruits and stay the same price all year around. They must have a plantation the size of Alaska somewhere, staffed by slave children.
  • No Big deal.
    The company I work for brings in around 9 truck loads of bananas a week and maybe once or twice a year do I hear of an insect or something similar being found.
    Most of the time they are found in our warehouse.
    I personally have found one scorpion and one moth the size of
    a sparrow both dead.
    An our main banana guy found a lizard we named Tripod, due to
    the lacking of a leg, which just passed away, two years after
    being found.
    In seven years I can only think of two or three cases where it was the customer who found the hitchhiker.
    The only reason bananas are vulnerable is that they have to be maintained at 55 degrees for the whole voyage, where most produce is chilled down to 35 of 40F
  • The spiders are only dangerous because of the dangerous amounts of radiation they're absorbing from the bananas, duh...
