Ricky Gervais does have a use after all

Oh, how meta is this. Ricky Gervais is on TV, doing his Animals stand-up thing, complaining about people filling websites with useless facts... including:

The peanut is not a nut but a legume.
You can lead a cow upstairs but not down.
When a crab's pissed it walks forwards instead of sideways.
The daddy longlegs as the strongest poison known to man, but it can't administer it as it has no teeth.

One of those may not be true.

Yes, he says that, but I'm sure when he's been tasked with trying to get a cow downstairs he'll be happy that he has that vital piece of information in his mental arsenal.

Unless that's the one that isn't true...

Okay, one of those may not be true, but which one?? Hoping desperately that it's the daddy longlegs one. Evolution or genetic changes quickly brought on by pollution could soon give it a nice pair of fangs.

This is going to add at least another 10 minutes to my bedroom routine checking for creepy crawlies now. Yikes!

the crab thing isn't true, he said so in the show (now available on DVD)
