Oh God Spiders Are Using Textspeak Now

Illustration for article titled Oh God Spiders Are Using Textspeak Now

Photographer Heather Ar’ite stumbled upon this web, created by a spider with more than a passing familiarity with online chatting. What was it lol-ing at, I wonder? Did it see a caterpillar trip? Did a fly escape its web only to fly directly into another spider’s web? Did it lay eggs in my ear while I was sleeping? Because if I so, I’m immediately going to start ROTFS (rolling on the floor, screaming).
