I don't mean to poop in anybody's corn flakes (wait ... am I suppose to say pee? Whatever ... something gross) but I got the impression that the dude wrote that on purpose to be funny. In spite of the lack of a smiley, I thought the "(anybody?)" addition was him tapping the mic and saying "is this thing on??"
I guess that's possible, but it just seemed so out of nowhere if done intentionally. If it was intentional I think he would've wrote something more along the lines of "Get it? Spiderface...? But yeah, benefit of the doubt.
And so much for having corn flakes for breakfast today.
