Mika Brzezinski had a visceral reaction to Mike Barnicle's story about his disgusting wasp story on Wednesday.

The MSNBC contributor told his fellow panelists that a wasp flew into his ear when he was pumping gas last week. "Your natural reaction when that happens is to go to your ear, and I drove the wasp in even further and it began stinging me," he recounted.

He said that it took two emergency rooms to get the wasp out, and the sound of the insect buzzing in his ear was even worse than the pain.

Brzezinski was utterly terrified by the entire ordeal, and shrieked, coiled back holding her ears and gasped at Barnicle's story. Watch her reaction in the clip above.
