Nominative Determinism

Honestly, I think “death-o-pillars” is a great name for spiders. Around the internet, they are mostly referred to as “nopes.” But then again, maybe this guy has a point. If we started calling killer whales (Orcinus orca) by the name orcas instead, which many people do, they may take it to heart and turn completely pacifist. This is the latest from John McNamee at Pie Comics.
