I almost convulsed with laughter

Re: Basic Black, “revolting animals,” The News, June 28.

I adore all non-human creatures (except maybe the brown recluse spider who recently injected my friend with a toxic cocktail) so was immediately drawn to the heading “Those revolting animals might just be out to get us.”

I was totally blind-sided at the end of the delightfully interesting article — almost convulsed in laughter.

On so many levels, thank you Arthur (author) Black.
