1. ## A spider's landing pad

'A spider's landing pad'. I heard that expression from an gentle Englisnman as a joke, and I was wondering if the structure of it is 'A+spider's landing pad', or 'A spider +'s + landing pad'. In other words, it is A (spider's landing pad) or A spider ( 's landing pad). Thank you as usual and I really appreciate your help.

I'm not sure what you mean by A spider + 's landing pad. Are you asking if "A spider's" could be short for "A spider is" or "A spider has"? If so, do you think that works given the other two words in the sentence?

By the way, in what way did he use it as a joke? I can't see anything remotely funny about it and I cannot imagine what he was referring to.

What exactly do you think this would mean?

Mathematical logic doesn't always apply to language.
