A different kind of Spider-Man

spider-boy.jpg9-year-old Jesse Courtney had spiders living in his left ear.

In the first few days Jesse kept hearing a faint popping, “like Rice Krispies” he told his mother. Eventually it started to really hurt.

The doctor irrigated Jesse’s ear and out came a spider, dead. After a second dousing another one was flushed out, and this one was still alive.

Jesse was given the two spiders (now both dead) as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother Diane has taken them to work. “Everyone we’ve told this story to has told me … they haven’t slept very well,” Diane said. “I know they’re not very big, but when they’re in your ear, they’re big enough.”
