Boy's Earache Caused By Pair Of Spiders Nesting In Ear

Life imitates urban legend.

...

Jesse Courtney said it felt like the tiny spiders were "walking on my eardrums."

His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear -- "like Rice Krispies" -- before the earache sent them to the doctor.

The doctor flushed Jesse's left ear, and the first spider came out, dead. The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.

Jesse was given the spiders -- now both dead -- as a souvenir. He's already taken them to school to show his classmates.

Apparently Jesse lives on a different planet than the one I grew up on. On planet earth, showing your classmates the spiders that had built a nest in your ear would be worse than them hatching eggs in your brain.

Thanks to the mysterious dri.
