SPIDER bites man on the… TWICE!

SPIDER bites man on the… TWICE!

Guys, couldn’t help myself and thought I would
do a video on the story that I’ve just found on the Internet for you, guys, it looks like
a bit of a classic. So, ”spider bites Australian man on the penis
again”. So, apparently this guy has been bitten now
twice on the penis by a spider. Tell you what, only in Australia, anyway. This is a photo of a redback spider which
is one of the two deadly spiders in Australia. There aren’t that many spiders in Australia
that have killed people. I think, as far as I know, it is only the
funnel web spider from Sydney and the redback spider you have here and they’re so uncommon,
as much as we’re afraid of spiders in Australia, it is very uncommon for people to die of the
bites, even though it says here redback spider bites are relatively common in Australia with
around 2000 people bitten every year. Anyway, let’s read through this article. So, a 21-year-old Australian tradesman has
been bitten by a venomous spider on the penis for the second time. The man was using a portable toilet on a Sydney
building site on Tuesday when he suffered a repeat of the incident five months ago. Jordan preferred not to reveal his surname,
I can imagine why, said he was bitten on pretty much the same spot by the spider. “I’m the most unlucky guy in the country at
the moment” he told BBC. “I was sitting on the toilet doing my business
and just felt the sting that I felt the first time I was like… I can’t believe it’s happened again!” I looked down and I’ve seen a few little legs
come from around the rim, far out! So, redback spiders, these guys here, tend
to hide in locations where they’re sort of underneath. What would you call it? Like gutters, underneath bark, underneath
rocks. They’re usually underneath something with
webs there and obviously this poor tradie, this tradesman working in Australia, has gone
to the toilet in an outdoor dunny. You know, one of these porta-loos we call
them, portable toilets, porta-loos and has obviously sat forward enough on the seat that
his private parts went up under the seat and without checking it there was a spider there
which is probably most men’s worst nightmares so, he said that being bitten the first time
had made him wary of using portable toilets, obviously not wary enough, right? He didn’t lift the seat up to have a look
underneath it. ”After the first time it happened. I didn’t really want to use one again”, he
said. ”Toilets got clean that day and I thought
it was my opportunity to go and use one”, alright, well, that makes sense. ”Had a look under both seats and then I sat
down to do my business”. Alright, so he did obviously check the seats,
you know, good on you mate, but obviously not well enough. ”Next thing you know I’m bent over in pain. I’ll be holding on”, the tradesmen’s said
he was not sure what type of spider a bit him this time, alright so may not have been
a redback spider one of his colleagues took him from the work site in northwest Sydney
to Blacktown hospital. Although many of his work mates were quick
to see the lighter side of the situation so, obviously they were laughing quite a lot. Seeing the lighter side of the situation so,
the funnier side of the situation. ”They got worried the first time”, he said,
”this time they were making jokes before I was getting into the car”. Poor dude, the poor dude. The hospital declined to discuss the matter
citing patient privacy. Jordan was released from hospital and said
he expected to return to work soon, but was unlikely to be using the onsite toilet for
good reason, for good reason I think ”I’ll be holding on for dear life to be honest”,
he said. The redback spider closely related to the
black widow spider is distinguished by a long red stripe on its abdomen. Its bite causes severe pain, sweating and
nausea. Although there are recorded cases of deaths
from redback bites, none have occurred since the development of antivenom in 1956 so, obviously
before 1956 we didn’t have an antivenom. So, if you were bitten by one of these guys,
there was no injection to give you to stop the effects of the venom. And we haven’t had a death since so, that’s
probably almost or more than 60, 70 years since the last death from a redback spider. Anyway, guys, obviously in Australia, if you
come here, if you are worried about spiders, just check under toilet seats when you sit
down, right? Especially outdoor toilets where spiders can
probably enter into them more easily. Another thing for you to do if you’re living
in the Sydney area or anywhere, really that’s, anywhere really in Australia, if you leave
shoes outside, if you leave gumboots outside, if you leave any kind of footwear or gloves
outside on the ground make sure that before putting them on you thoroughly shake them
out because sometimes these kinds of animals, like scorpions, spiders and even small snakes,
centipedes they can crawl inside these boots, they can hide in there. They can make a home in there in these gloves,
boots and shoes and if you just put your hand or foot into there you may disrupt one of
these unsuspecting critters in their new home and receive an unpleasant bite. Anyway, that’s all for this one. I hope you enjoy it, let me know if you want
me to do more episodes like this talking about stories from down under and if you find any
good ones, guys, be sure to send them via e-mail or on Facebook. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it. See you later!

  4. Hi Thank you so much for uploading the new video. I got distracted by the funny video when I had to work on my final report, but I really enjoyed your video as usual.. Anyway, I did not catch what you said after you said “what is going on, guys” in the video and I would like you to let me know.

  5. How common are the huntsman spiders? I'd love to go to Sydney or Melbourne but I'm terrified of spiders and as big as those huntmans are, I would be traumatized/traumatised for life lmao
