“There I was cooking chicken, salmon, enjoying myself out there. I’m just minding my own business, ain’t bothering nobody, everything is good in my world… I got my tennis shoes and my socks on and I think ‘man, my feet are kind of itching that ain’t really like an itch’. They’re kind of really starting to hurt and I kind of run one ankle against my foot and I did the other one. I look down, I’m standing right in the middle of a big a** pile of fire ants and they are f*cking whooping my a**.”

Stone Cold Steve Austin laid down the perfect plan for revenge

Now, The Texas Rattlesnake couldn’t just accept defeat. He removed his shoes and socks and proceeded to execute a plan that helped him overpower the fire ants.

“I took a small piece of chicken, laid it on the ground. They came swarming. As soon as a bunch of them got on it, I put that damn piece of chicken in a ziploc bag… I would reach into the ziplock bag with my thumb and my pointing finger. Pull out one ant at a time. I would sit their little sorry a** on the camper floor. And, thump their a** right out of the f*cking trailer.”

This isn’t anyone’s ideal camping situation. However, if there is one person who wouldn’t let fire ants go their merry way after freeing themselves of them, it’s WWE Legend Cold Steve Austin. While most people would know not to mess with Steve Austin, the unfortunate aunts did not have that information, and they paid a heavy price for it.
