Juan Bosches hornets.
This is a story from the olden days when hornets were the scourge of England.
I guess we just had a bad case of the hornet plague, the British Army had to come up with a new and more effective weapon to fight them off.
Hornets are the most common and most dangerous of all birds, but the British have had to fight a few in the past.
Bosch rexes was the only grinder capable of breaking the wood of a hornet, and he did so using his head as the fulcrum.
Bosches job is to smash the horn as hard as possible into the ground, causing the wings to fly out.
After this, the grinder drops the horn and picks it up again.
He then feeds it back to the horn, whereupon the bird bursts into flame.
The story of the grinders success is not one you will find in the old Bible, but it’s interesting.
It’s not entirely clear whether Bosch was just a little bit overworked, or if he had a personal vendetta against hornets, but if he really was just doing his job well, he might have been able to get away with it.
