The US now has “murder hornets” – these 13 funny reactions have a sting in the tail
News of the arrival in the US of a flying pest, the Asian Giant Hornet, had people quaking at the thought. It didn’t help that the New York Times dubbed them “murder hornets”.
A new threat reaches the United States: A massive hornet with mandibles that rip bees to shreds and a stinger so potent that one unfortunate victim likened it to "having red-hot thumbtacks being driven into my flesh."https://t.co/miU3QLGCF9

Has the president spoken about the murder hornets yet? Because the minute he says not to worry about the murder hornets is when I’m gonna get real concerned about the murder hornets.
