25 Jokes the Internet Is Already Making About Murder Hornets
As if a global pandemic wasn't enough, murder hornets are here to make 2020 even worse.
It seems that Mother Nature knows the perfect time to kick us when we’re feeling down. As if 2020 wasn’t already bad enough, a news report came out that “Murder hornets” has entered the United States for the first time ever. And, yes, these hornets are just as scary as their name implies. If you need some more laughs while you’re stuck at home worrying about killer bees, here are some hilarious working from home memes.
The hornets are one and a half to two inches long, have striking black eyes, large yellow-orange heads, and a striped black and yellow abdomen. The insect becomes most dangerous during late summer to early fall when they attack honey bee populations. The hornets invade beehives, rip off the honey bees heads killing them, and eat the larvae and pupae. A few hornets can destroy an entire hive in a matter of hours.
Luckily, they don’t go after humans unless provoked. Typical beekeeping protective clothing isn’t enough to protect you from their long stingers. Their venom is more toxic than the typical bee and they can sting multiple times. Murder hornets have been known to kill up to 50 people a year in Japan.
But, as humans, when things scare us the only viable option is to make jokes about it, and when everyone found out about murder hornets, they did not hold back. Before you let these demonic creatures take over your nightmares and you lock all your doors and swear to never step foot outside again, read through some of the most hilarious jokes we’ve gathered about the murder hornet. Just smile and pretend everything is OK. These funny photos might help you feel better.
