Video shows guy get a dose of instant karma after messing with the wrong turtle

The internet is a wonderful resource. With all the monumental strides taken over the last few years, it has become increasingly fast, accessible, and expansive. So much information is available to us just with a couple of clicks or a few swipes.

We can learn about what's happening on the other side of the world, keep in contact with friends and family where in the past we would only have grown further and further apart. But, of course, a lot of us end up using it to make ourselves laugh with funny cat videos at the end of the day.

And if the internet has anything, it has an endless line of idiotic people filming themselves doing ridiculous things. This doesn't always end too well for them, but at least we get a kick out of the instant karma doled out for those who overstep the mark.

Take this man, who, for some unknown reason decided to... kiss a turtle? It's a bit confusing what he's doing, but clearly, the turtle doesn't like it - and makes sure to let him know.

Some of the commenters said that this is a red-eared slider, with one user adding that "they just wanna bite stuff". Sounds like this dude was tempting fate more than we even knew. Another Redditor got straight to the point:

"This is probably the stupidest thing I've ever seen anyone do with a turtle. I really don't get it. What was he expecting? Lucky the turtle didn't take that chunk of his tongue... and he'll likely enjoy a nice bout of salmonella as a bonus prize."

Either way, I don't think this guy or any of his mates tried this again, that's for sure.
