7 of the worst messes you'll ever have to clean up

Are you ready for this?

SOME MESSES YOU can just about handle.

And some messes are sent from the depths of Hell to put mankind to the test. These are those messes:

1. Rotten vegetables

I’ll just pick this up to throw it awaAAAAH MY GOD IT’S ALL OVER ME.


2. Tiny Lego bricks

There is no way to clear these up without somehow stepping on one in your socks, which as you know is the worst pain a human can experience.


3. Mouldy teacups

Because you know you’re destroying an advanced civilisation in every mug. Also, because they’re gross.


4. Hairgrips

It is scientifically impossible to pick up every one of these. They breed and deposit their young around your house.

5. Dead flower water

The military looked into using dead flower water smell as a chemical weapon, but it was rejected as too powerful.

7. Bin juice

Bin juice is a weapon of mass destruction. An airstrike is the only option.
