Scientists thought for a moment that they had made the momentous discovery of a spider with nine legs, but were disappointed to find the said arachnid actually had a hard-on.
Not just a hard-on, but one that has lasted almost 100 million years. The spider, Halitherses Grimaldii, which is related to the Daddy Long legs, was found preserved in amber in Myanmar.
One scientist said initial disappointment at having not made a discovery of a completely new species was soon overcome when a large pharmaceutical company offered billions of pounds for the finding.
