Someone posted Joywave’s drummer a box of live scorpions
Joywave drummer Paul Brenner has been telling WROC all about a scary incident that’s sure to spook anyone who loves online shopping, i.e. most of us.
He’d ordered a t shirt and shoes from a seller in Hawaii, and when it arrived the box had some unexpected extras: “At first I thought it was like a tick, or something. I mean, they were really small,” he said. “That’s when I realised, ‘No, that’s a scorpion’. That’s when my shirt left my hands and went into the box.”
There were eight small scorpions and one big boy.
It’s not clear if this was deliberate, a targeted attack on Brenner or a random hit, but he added, “‘Tis the season, I suppose… I was tricked, not treated today.”
As for the police investigation “The cops seemed to love it… More kept showing up, they had their phones out, some of them were saying ‘I’ve never even seen a scorpion.’”
