    Doctor finds spiders in boy's ear

    ALBANY, Ore. - These guys weren't exactly Snap, Crackle and Pop. What began as a faint popping in a 9-year-old boy's ear — "like Rice Krispies" — ended up as an earache, and the doctor's diagnosis was that a pair of spiders made a home in the ear.

    "They were walking on my eardrums," Jesse Courtney said.

    One of the spiders was still alive after the doctor flushed the fourth-grader's left ear canal. His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear — "like Rice Krispies."

    Dr. David Irvine said it looked like the boy had something in his ear when he examined him.

    When he irrigated the ear, the first spider came out, dead. The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.

    Jesse was given the spiders — now both dead — as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother has taken them to work.

    "It was real interesting, 'cause, two spiders in my ear — what next?" Jesse said.

    Reminds me of that episode of the twighlight zone where that bug crawled into the guys ear. The only way it could get out was to eat it's way thru the brain to the other side & out the other ear.

    The guy endured tremendous agony & the bug finally made its way out.

    Only then did they discover it was a female & the female lays eggs.

    Hey! That happened to me... really.

    Dang Dr. in the ER tried to pull it out with tweezers.
    : Dummy! I punched him in the stomach. Told him to flush it out. He was the laughing stock of the hospital for years over the "Retrieved one live spider from patients ear, minus two legs." ;D
