If you are an arachnophobic, then you will perfectly understand an eerie feeling that the eight-legged creature invokes in many. There are also a few who would go to extreme lengths to get rid of the creatures. Last year, a man even accidentally burned down an apartment when he tried killing a huge spider using blowtorch. So, when A Facebook user decided to share an image of a demolished house with the words “Got the Spider!” written on the roof, it instantly caught people’s attention.
The house belongs to 51-year-old Jeff Hopkins who along with his girlfriend Dawn Cronk, 49, came up with this joke, reports Argus Leader. They wanted to write something on the crumbled house and finally came up with the phrase “Got the Spider!” Soon, they set the joke in motion by spray painting the words on the roof of the razed house.
“I didn’t think anybody would really notice,” Hopkins told to Argus Leader. “We did it just to make us laugh,” he added.

“It made somebody smile for a day,” Cronk told to Argus Leader. “It made somebody stop and giggle for a few minutes and remember that life doesn’t always have to be a hustle and bustle. To me it’s a blessing, because we made somebody smile and laugh about it.”
