How many kangaroos could you fight?
Twitter user @laz1023 has left all responsible Ohioians asking themselves that very same question after a hilarious tweet over the weekend. The tweet was simple. When the current population of Ohio is pitted against the world’s population of kangaroo, Ohioans are badly outnumbered.
There are roughly 40 million kangaroos worldwide and there are 8 million people in Ohio so if there was an instance that kangaroos invaded Ohio each individual would have to fight off a minimum of 5 kangaroos and idk if we could do it

I want to believe that here in Ohio, we are capable of anything. But I also believe that I cannot fight 5 kangaroos in hand to hand combat. Especially because I’m envisioning kangaroos like this:
