MAN SETS PETROL STATION ON FIRE TRYING TO KILL SPIDER

Sometimes, you just really want to make sure you’ve got it.

The phrase ‘kill it with fire’ is bandied about a lot on the internet, but normally not actually acted upon. However, one man in the city of Center Lane Michigan decided to really go the full nine yards when confronted with a spider sitting on his petrol tank. He told authorities that he was scared of the eight-legged beasts, and so decided to use a cigarette lighter to remove it.

A cigarette lighter.

Gas station employee Susan Adams told Fox 2: “He didn’t have a cigarette. He didn’t have anything on him. All of a sudden I look out and I see flames.”

Fortunately, the unnamed motorist had the sense to grab a fire extinguisher and put the fire out, as Adams cut the supply to the pump before calling firefighters. The pump was destroyed, although the vehicle suffered little damage.

It is not known whether the spider survived.

Take a look and marvel at one man’s stupidity in the clip below.
