No matter what your job might be, the fact is that none of us loves Monday mornings, a time of the week generally marked by sitting in the car for an awkward period of time while saying things like “Okay. This again. This again for five days. I can do this,” and trying pretty hard to actually believe them. Take heart, though! Whatever you do for a living, it is probably not as bad as the dung beetle’s job, which involves a lot rolling, fighting over, and eating dung. Pushing and eating balls of poop around is even a dung beetle’s idea of a romantic night out on the town. Come enjoy Ze Frank’s latest take on the horrors and strangeness of the natural world in the video below and start your Monday off right by reminding yourself there are way worse fates than fighting the morning commute. You could have a dung ball instead of a car, for example.
