    Pharyngeal Irritation After Eating Cooked Tarantula

    From the Internet Journal of Medical Toxicology. The gist:
    Tarantula hairs, which have previously been reported to cause both dermal and ocular irritation in humans, appeared to cause pharyngeal irritation when consumed as part of a prepared dinner. Although other causes of symptoms could not be rigorously excluded, we conclude that cooked tarantula is a potentially irritating food.
    Damn; now I'll have to rearrange my dinner plans...
