Apparently, beetles aren’t fans of The Beatles.
A pine tree planted in memory of former Beatle George Harrison in Los Angeles died after being infested by – wait for it – actual beetles.

The guitarist died of lung cancer while in the city in 2001, he was 58 years old at the time. The tree was planted three years later, with a small plaque at the base of it that reads “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.”
A new tree will be planted, but the date hasn’t been confirmed.
Irony in its purest form, folks.
