On Tuesday night, Kevin Hart stopped by The Tonight Show to chat it up with Jimmy Fallon about his new standup flick, Kevin Hart: What Now?

Last time he was on, Kevin and the SNL alum played the world's worst and most disgusting late night game, Drinko. This time around they kept the grossness but got the audience involved for an interactive game of Would You Rather?

The pint-sized comedian and the perpetually positive host had to do their best to guess the audience's answers to questions like:

"Would you rather have a clone of yourself you can boss around, or have a pet dog who can talk?"

Then the loser had to make a REAL Would You Rather choice: either hold worms for 10 seconds, or go full Fear Factor and eat a cricket!

Ch-ch-check out the silly game (below) as Kevin and Jimmy do their best to read the audience's mind (or jump right to the cricket appetizer at about minute 6:00)!

Scientists Name Newly Discovered Species After Game Of Thrones Dragons!

The newly identified Pheidole drogon worker ants are called "dragon ants" based on their strange, reptile-like spine.

But these tropical insects also got their name because the scientists who discovered them are obsessed with Game Of Thrones!

According to the study that chronicles the finding of the two separate species, one population in Papua New Guinea and the other in Fiji — explains the ants reminded the researchers of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons in the HBO fantasy series!

But unlike the fire-breathing dragons in the show, you have no reason to be afraid of the harmless drogon worker ants.

Instead of snacking on charred sheep and the occasional extra-crispy shepherd's boy like Dany's Drogon, these insects are scavengers and collectors of seeds.

But with a gnarly spine and scary spikes around their necks (see below), these ants still look like

Alex Bestler was hiking with a female friend just before 9:00 a.m. at Usery Mountain Park in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa when, without warning, a swarm of bees descended upon him and began relentlessly stinging.

His friend was able to run to the safety of a bathroom, and from there she ran to call for help — but Bestler had already been overtaken by the swarm at that point.

Even the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office seemed surprised at the sudden attack:

Not The Bees! Semi Truck Crashes, Spills Out 14 Million Bees Onto Interstate!!!

That's a lot of bees!

A semi truck was involved in a pretty bad accident Friday on Interstate 405 near Lynnwood, Washington.

And while the driver of the truck was not injured, this crash was a very different type of highway nightmare — the truck was carrying over 14 MILLION BEES!

Many of the $92,000 worth of bees died in the crash and recovery process, but the majority of the bees were saved and put back on their way to pollinate a blueberry farm in Whatcom County.

Luckily, the crash happened around 3:30 am, making it much easier to wrangle the cargo — the sun causes bees to get much more agitated and difficult to handle.

As it is, almost all of the Highway Patrol, media, and other responders on the scene were reportedly stung at least once.

Ouch! We're just glad the driver and most of these bees ended up OK!
