“When the murder hornets take a life, do they call it a buzzkill?”

In 2020, the United States experienced an invasion of “murder hornets” from Asia.

“When the murder hornets take a life do they call it a buzzkill?” was posted on Twitter by Samantha on May 6, 2020. The joke was repeated on Facebook many times later on the same day.

“Who decided to call them ‘murder hornets’ and not ‘buzzkills’?” is a similar joke.


Wikipedia: Asian giant hornet
The Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia), including the former subspecies referred to as the “Japanese giant hornet” is the world’s largest hornet. It is native to temperate and tropical East Asia, South Asia, Mainland Southeast Asia, and parts of the Russian Far East. It was also found in the Pacific Northwest of North America in late 2019, with no reports since to suggest that they have become established there.
