Today in “Australia is a horrifying death continent” news, reporter Alex Bernhardt for 9 News in Brisbane was filming her report when she stopped mid-sentence and blurted, “I’ve just gotten bitten by a fucking bull ant!”
She then slowly sank out of the frame in agony. “Fuck. Oh my god, ow. I’m about to cry. It’s really really sore.”
It’s really easy to laugh at her until you realize that this is what a bull ant looks like and they can grow up to 40 mm long.
I’m now amazed and impressed that she didn’t scream and hop up and down on one foot.
