Greek Town Is Covered In Spiderwebs And We May Have To Nuke Greece To Save The World From A Spider Invasion



The spiders are coming. They’re coming to take over the world. First it’s a tiny town in Greece, next its world domination and we’ll be bowing before our new spider overlords. It’s time to take action.

We take you to the charming town of Aitoliko in Western Greece where the spiders are attempting to take over the area. Around the lagoon, there is an area of about 1,000-feet that is completely blanketed by thick spiderwebs. The causes of these spooky spiderwebs is the Tetragnatha spiders, which are commonly called “stretch spiders” because of their elongated bodies, that live in tropical climates around the world. I’ll just go ahead and take Greece off my travel list right now.

The reason for all of the pomp and circumstance is sex because nothing motivates all living things quite like sex. “It’s as if the spiders are taking advantage of these conditions and are having a kind of a party,” explained arachnologist Maria Chatzaki. “They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation.” The spiderwebs will catch gnats and mosquitos, which will feed the baby spiders that are born from the arachnid orgy.

Chatzaki claims that the spiders don’t pose any danger to humans, but has Maria ever walked through a tiny spiderweb? Imagine walking through one of these thick spiderwebs? Death would be inevitable.

If Elon Musk was smart, he’d open up a pop-up Boring Company flamethrower shop in Greece, pronto. On the bright side, this saves local citizens a lot of money on spooky fake spiderweb Halloween decorations.

What if this spiderweb phenomenon expands past Greece and into other countries all over the planet? Are you willing to put you and your loved ones in that kind of arachnid dystopia? We should probably just nuke Greece now so we’re not inflicted with a world-wide web.
