The Simpsons & Weather Camera Spider Meme

Global BC meteorologist Kristi Gordon had quite the fright last week when a spider appeared on the weather camera during her news segment. The viral YouTube clip has since spawned a meme drawing comparisons with a classic The Simpsons episode.

Entomophobes and arachnophobes, beware!

Kent Brockman: “The spacecraft has apparently been taken over, “conquered” if you will, by a master race of giant space ants. It’s difficult to tell from this vantage point whether they will consume the captive earth men or merely enslave them. One thing is for certain. There is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I for one welcome our new insect overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I could be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.”
