Arachnidiot (ar ak ni’ di ot) – n. A person, who, having wandered into an “invisible” spider web, begins gyrating and flailing about wildly.
If you live in an insect-heavy area of the world, you most likely have seen these kinds of people around, and they can be quite amusing, but be careful. Even if you have no fear of spiders, the creepy feeling of walking into a spider web is one you never want to experience. The wild dance you might do has no steps or rhythm, and there is only one song you can do it to, which also happens the be the National Tobogganing Song “AAAUUGGHHH!” which will be the main chorus, and the verses go something like a chant of “Get it off! Get it off! Get it off!” or “Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!” Any lyrics are completely ad lib and the song can last as long as the poor person walking into the web can stand. Watch where you walk in the wooded area, or even between the trees in your yard, or even out your front door. To a crafty and hungry spider, you might be a great catch for dinner, or you might be the victim of a practical joke which will amuse the spider greatly.
