A couple years ago my brother showed me a picture of an Asian giant hornet, and I thought he had Photoshopped it for the sole purpose of ruining my life, because if I was in one of those horror movies where a psychotic sadist made all my biggest fears come true, the grand finale would just be putting me in a room with a really big bee. So I was horrified this morning when I came across a story about a Japanese vodka that’s made out of fermented giant hornets. Seriously: you drown a bunch of hornets in vodka and let the resulting stew ferment for three years. That’s the recipe. Apparently the drink smells like rotting flesh and has a “salty aftertaste that comes from the wasp’s poison.” I need a drink–made with non-hornet vodka–to recover from this story. [Oddity Central]

13 More Animals That Terrify Me

Lately, my mom has been getting her kicks by emailing me photos of animals she thinks I’ll find terrifying and asking me if I like them. Very funny. See, she knows all about my fear of birds, and I’m pretty sure she thought my slideshow on the scariest-looking animals on earth was the funniest thing I’ve ever written. Clearly, she’s pushing me to do a followup by emailing me photos of weird looking beasts. Like this fluffy guy above. It’s hard for me to imagine a more upsetting animal — feathers, beady little eyes, the misleading vibe that it’s full of peace and tranquility — but luckily, it is imaginary. It was dreamt up by a pair of artists, thank god. 

So, nice try with this one, Mom. This freak of nature may not make the cut, but these 13 other members of the Animal Kingdom do scare the shit out of me…
