quicko: spiders

Are what we'd call floats.

I realize this might be confusing. Let me back up. Ahem.

If you go to a cafe and order a "spider," the friendly waitress will bring you a "float." Root beer would be pushing things (haven't got it), but Australians would most traditionally probably expect some sort of red soda, or, failing that, coke. They look delicious, though I must admit to being rather delinquent: I have yet to taste a spider. Of either variety.

And here I was thinking parade floats!
