Have you ever had the fear that some bug or something might crawl in your ear. I have often had the thought of how horrible an experience something like that would be if it ever happened. I have seen something like this depicted in movies or TV shows, and I have even heard about it actually happening only to find out later that it was just an urban legend. Now there is a story on MSN
of a boy that this actually happened to. He kept hearing popping sounds "like Rice Krispies" and he ended up having an earache so he went to the doctor. The doctor discovered two spiders that had crawled into his ear and they were walking on his eardrum making the popping sound. The doctor irrigated the ear and one spider came out dead and then flushed it again and the other one came out still alive. They were both about the size of a pencil eraser and were probably feeding off the boy's earwax for the two days they were inside his ear. Ugggggh!
