We’ve seen some pretty stupid things on the Internet because the human race has gotten to the stage where riding a trolley down a road in the hope of another 10,000 YouTube subscribers is more important than a college degree.
Still, taking my Anna Karenina novel and earl grey tea to one side, I couldn’t help but be amused by this insanely stupid video of a man attempting to remove a hornet’s nest near the front porch of someone’s home. Yep, you read that correctly. He attempted to do it HIMSELF.
So, of course, the plan radically backfired, as instead of doing what any sane person would and call Pest Control or douse it in Jet Spray, he whacked it with a baseball bat.
In a scene reminiscent of a wacky cartoon, the perpetrator can be seen running for his life as aggrieved hornets, who can reach speeds of up to 30mph, sting him left, right, and centre.
Eventually, he hobbles to his front door, though his friend echoes what all of us were thinking, telling him that he’s an “idiot.”
Watch the full video below and share it with someone you think is as stupid as this guy.
