Guys, you can stop holding your nutsack and squirming. It was all a hoax.
A guy in Sweden did NOT die after sticking his ding-a-ling into a hornet's nest. The publication, News Sweden, that ran with the story is a spoof publication, sort of a Swedish Onion, but...then...a London newspaper took up the story about how a neighbor named Bertil Ståhfrääs (whose name translates as "erection" in Swedish) found the sad fellow, Hasse, lying there, sadly unsated:
"I have never in my life seen such a swollen pelvic bone. It hid the whole package [and] the scrotum was enlarged. Right now it feels heavy and unreal. We did not talk very often, but he was still my neighbour."
A supposed autopsy of Hasse's body allegedly showed semen on some of the dead wasps and a number of the victim's pubic hair was found at the entrance of the nest. His fingerprints were also found on the nest, leading the police to believe he had been trying to have sex with the hornet's nest when he was stung to death.
"To attempt to have intercourse with a hornet's nest is a very bad idea," Siv Underlivh, a psychologist and expert on sex fantasies told the news website. Underlivh was also a play on words, meaning 'fetish' in Swedish.
There is a lesson to be learned. Sex with insects, bad. Leave those 17-year cicadas be.
