On June 25, a Twitter user @jakecoco shared a photo with a theory of how a mosquito would be killed in a trap made from a combination of the four ingredients.

Salt, rum, stick, and rock are four ingredients of a method of how to kill a mosquito. This meme is already a viral sensation on the Internet and it has been liked by over 4.5 lakh people on Twitter. On June 25, a Twitter user @jakecoco shared a photo with a theory of how a mosquito would be killed in a trap made from a combination of the four ingredients.

In the photo that was shared, four things are kept in a line on the surface of what appears to be a bench in a garden. On the left, there is some salt. Just right to that, there is a bottle cap. A little wooden stick is lying next to the cap on the right of which there is a small piece of rock. The theory, according to the user, goes like this — at first, the target mosquito would land on the salt mistaking it for sugar, which would make it thirsty. Now, when the mosquito would be looking for water, it would drink the liquid from the bottle cap kept next to it. The liquid is actually rum which would get it drunk. After that, the drunk mosquito would trip on the wooden stick and bang its head on the piece of rock. That’s how the mosquito would meet its end.

Almost everyone found the meme hilarious. One user termed it brilliant and said this was the best laugh he has had for some time.
