today's Dork Tower amuses me.
unlike this guy, i'm at least consistent with my arachnophobia. i scream and run if i see a daddy-long-legs in my bath or anywhere else...but i have also made it very clear that my D&D game can use any miniatures it wants--except for spiders. sure, we can fight spiders in the adventure...but the spider has to be represented by something that does not look like a spider. my character in the game may not be arachnophobic, but the "demi-deity" controlling it [me, duh!] still is.
