With over 22 species of paper wasps in North America alone, the insects are not that uncommon. What is uncommon, however, is an allergic reaction of this magnitude.
In the above video, the woman laughs off the disfiguration, saying into the camera, "I can't believe how swollen it is! Ahh, poor me."
She continues to giggle as she pans the camera from left and right, showing off her the momentous proportions of her cheek and lips.
"I don't have anything to give, so I'll just say goodbye now," the woman says as she signs off ever-so-effortlessly.
Lesson learned, bug spray IS our best friend.

Hundreds of European honey bees cover a rack in bee keeper Fred Frye's backyard in Tijeras, N.M., on Wednesday, Aug. 4, 1999. While working a newly acquired hive10 miles away, Frye was accosted by several hundred bees trying to sting him through his protective clothing. A sample of the bees was turned in to the New Mexico Department of Agriculture which said the variety of bee that attacked Frye was a cross between a killer bee, or Africanized honey bee, and a more docile European honeybee. The bees have been blamed for seven deaths in the Southwest, four in Arizona and three in Texas, and have been found in dozens of counties stretching from Texas to California.

In this photo, released by the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, assistant entomology professor Bill Kern demonstrates how bees behave when they're in "defense mode," during the Africanized Honey Bee Field Day, Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2006, at the school's tropical research and education center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The event taught police, fire and other emergency workers how to properly deal with the insects and was a joint effort by the university and the state's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Georgia officials have set traps along the Florida border to detect the arrival of aggressive Africanized bees, possibly this year. Africanized bees, a hybrid that originated in Brazil, arrived in Texas in 1990 and have been spreading to other states. Experts believe Georgia's healthy population of docile European bees could dampen the aggressive nature of Africanized bees, also known as killer bees. (AP Photo, Elliott Minor)
