12 Hilarious Tweets About the Very Unwelcome Murder Hornet Plot Twist

Just when we thought it might be safe to go out, BAM- Murder Hornets.

If you’re thinking “what the fuck is a murder hornet and oh dear God how could 2020 possibly get worse?!” you aren’t alone. The “murder hornet” is actually just a sinister name for a species of invasive giant hornet that’s been spotted recently in the United States for the first time. If this is pinging your dire-o-meter then it’s for good reason- this is very unwelcome news in the vast ocean of shittiness in which we currently find ourselves.

The Asian giant hornet can grow up to lengths of about 1.5 to 2 inches. Their stingers are so long that they can sting a bitch right through a beekeeping suit, causing a lot of pain but (usually) not death. If they were to swarm a person then they’d likely live up to their “murder” moniker, however, in normal circumstances they are more of a threat to local bee populations (which, to be fair, will cause some major human damage in secondary consequences).

The murder hornets’ M.O. seems to be decapitating bees, decimating populations, which is a huge problem. Scientists are now trying to sort out how to evict these critters fast, so that they don’t get comfortable and cause massive problems to native bee populations and food systems.

In the tragic hellscape that this year has been so far, the news of these massive ungodly creatures was a quite unwelcome plot twist. That being said, where there’s big scary feelings, there’s often super hilarious content.
