UPDATE: We were just informed this is actually from 2012. But because the grossness is eternal, we will leave this post up for you to enjoy. Let's all agree to call it a #ThrowbackThursday

Apparently the Australian Open is run by bullies, because they made this ball girl catch a giant bug WITH HER BARE HANDS.

Catching any bug with your bare hands is gross, but there are two things about this incident that make me especially scornful of the decision-makers at the Australian Open:

1. That is a HUGE bug.

2. Everything in Australia is made to kill you.

Kudos to the girl, who removed the offending insect to a huge round of applause from the crowd, and shame on you, Australian Open. At least give her some gloves next time.
