Unless you have a spider with a screen type body, you could wrap the spider in cheesecloth. I envision some fairly small pieces. Ricer holes are small.

How about grating the potatoes with a box grater using the larger holes then sprinkling the shreds into the oil. That might work better. With the grater, you would use raw potatoes. With the ricer they'd have to be cooked.

May your kilt be short enough to do a jig, but long enough to cover your Lucky Charms.

I think I had something like this as a kid, but the potatoes had been pre-mashed and eggs had been mixed in. It's been a really long time though so I'm not positive.
Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.

What about using something larger BT? I am thinking gnocchi or something along those lines.

I think you will end up with a mess. I think the potatoes will break down and dissolve and rise to the top and form a layer of greasy potato mush...

The only time I use my ricer is when I make lefse. And, the potatoes do fall apart. That's why I use the ricer...You might try something like the spaghetti noodle maker on a KA stand mixer, but I think that the strands would still fall apart...
