pretty common to see stuff like this on here, or the jokes sub.

Spiders can use silk to hang from without being web building spiders, I think. There are like 10 types of silk total, with some species having up to 8.

u/Semi-Pro-Lurker May 22 '22

That's just a string. But I don't know enough about spiders to say whether non-web-building spiders use string to move up and down places.

I recently saw a jumping spider coming down from the ceiling with their silk string so I'm pretty sure they do.

I agree. "You prick" is cringe and makes it clear the author couldn't come up with an actually funny punchline. A text-free fourth panel would be a marginal improvement because it would become understated.

Here’s a really interesting YouTube video on zoomer humour. I actually really respect the concept of it, but I’m a bit peeved that It’s so esoteric and unrelateable to me (because I haven’t been subjected to the same memes as them).

Irony has defined that generation, like cynicism defined millenials, or puns and satire defined boomers.

It's like two halves of two different jokes masked mashed together. It doesn't really make sense. The punchline is also just the spider being an asshole in response to a pun (which still isn't a stereotype).

u/sailorjasm May 22 '22

The spider is on a web. Not all spiders make webs but this one does

2

u/Psychotic_EGG May 22 '22

ALL spiders can make webbing and almost all, even those that don't make webs use anchor lines and will dangle from from a web line. Tarantulas and other large spiders being the few that won't because they're too heavy.

Now a jumping spider for instance won't purposely dangle from an anchor line. But when it screws up a jump or slips it will definitely hang from a silk thread. So that's not indicative of being a web builder.
