A tip o' the hat to Australian reader Snoggeramus, who informs us of today's winner.
Police say the 66-year-old woman spotted a spider on the washing machine of her Kirribilli home, on Sydney's north shore, about 1pm (AEDT) on Saturday.
She opted for insecticide and sprayed the spider which ran under the machine.
The woman pursued the spider, sprayed under the machine and it exploded.
The blast blew out the kitchen and bathroom windows and destroyed the washing machine.
Fire investigators believe the motor of the washing machine ignited the insect spray, triggering the explosion.
She's OK, apart from some minor injuries, but there's no sign of the spider . . . and the washing machine's now in an infinite-loop spin cycle!
