We've had a weird, rather preoccupied start to the week around here, so we're going to lighten things up a little bit for you all before we call it a night: This is a video of a woman getting back at her becouched boyfriend by dropping a fake tarantula on his head. Consider it a simple reminder that even when there is really bad stuff going on in the world, you can always scare the bejesus out of someone with a plastic monster and some string, and it will always be hilarious. (It also helps the rest of us if you have a camera and YouTube account handy.)
