Lucas Pokes the Bear

Lucas the Spider, the world’s most adorable arachnid (also the world’s only adorable arachnid) demonstrates the correct protocol for dealing with polar bears: Step One, boop the polar bear on the nose; Step Two: Run like hell. (Also, if your polar bear can actually be a dog instead, this is much less dangerous.)

Sometimes you boop the bear, sometimes the bear boops you, Faye. (I have no idea what that means.)

    I’d rather be booped by this bear than a spider. (Sorry, Lucas.)

    Although they tried, I’m afraid I’m never going to find spiders cute. I like the doggie….

      Same here. I’m not going to down vote it but this still gets to me.

    I love Lucas!! Then again, I do like spiders, and was dismayed when Dmitri Purrshkavich grabbed one in the basement and walked nonchalantly around with a leg sticking out of his mouth…

      I’m with you, Sowmya! I love spiders, think they’re beautiful, will go to great lengths not to hurt them or will save them when I find one in the sink or tub. And Lucas is totally adorable. So is the doggie.

        I’d rather have spiders than flies. Just saying.

      I too don’t mind spiders unless they get too big. Maybe it’s because we all spin and weave?

    Such a placid bear. Good safe place to start, Lucas!

    Lucas fascinates me. I’m enchanted and repulsed at the same time. Hmmm, been there in other circumstances that I won’t describe here!

      Lol, you are cracking me up today Faye– not that you don’t usually. Must be Spring’s arrival giving you zip.

      • Faye March 20, 2018 / 11:00 pm

        At your service.

    Lucas is adorbs!!!

    • debg March 20, 2018 / 9:36 pm

      I concur. Loved this one, though I can understand why spider-phobes don’t.

      I myself have a phobia about dinosaurs (among other big bitey critters), and TWO–count ’em, two–of the trailers before Black Panther had dinosaurs. Went by myself, so I couldn’t ask someone to tell me when the dinosaurs were gone.

      BP was terrific, by the way. And I keep laughing over Mike’s pun, “Wakanda cat foot you got?”

    Lucas is definitely adorbs. As opposed to the spider that was in my car last night. I had to refrain from setting my car on fire. 0_o

    Beautiful polar bear and Lucas is cute but his voice….
    Thankfully the spiders in my home aren’t talkative, they just weave way too fast.

    • Jendeyan March 20, 2018 / 5:15 pm

      I love his little kid voice!

      • Murray C March 20, 2018 / 8:33 pm

        I do, too – it’s his 5 year old nephew. I was thinking what happens when the kid’s voice starts to change????

        • Jendeyan March 21, 2018 / 8:24 am

          I’ve had that thought too.

  8. Gigi The cat lady March 20, 2018 / 3:02 pm

    Sorry, I tried but Lucas gives me the creeps.

  9. 6puppers March 20, 2018 / 5:14 pm

    Lucas is cute, but I love the polar bear. I have my own polar bear at home, so I may be a tad bias.

  10. Jendeyan March 20, 2018 / 5:20 pm

    I’m a big Lucas fan. The animator deserves major props! So many cute little movements that really bring out the cute and cuddly in Lucas the Spider. I love his little bottom wiggle before he jumps down the hole in this video.

    • Murray C March 20, 2018 / 8:34 pm

      I’m glad you mentioned that, Jendeyan – I was ready for it!

  11. Mal March 21, 2018 / 12:03 am

    Oh hey now, the YMCA Peacock Spider is adorable too.

    • Jendeyan March 21, 2018 / 8:26 am

      Agreed! I love how he dances for the ladies.

      • Alice Shortcake March 21, 2018 / 2:01 pm

        That video cracks me up every single time.

        • Faye March 21, 2018 / 2:49 pm

          Priceless. What the internet was created for.

    • Murray C March 21, 2018 / 2:59 pm

      He’s gorgeous.
