The internet roasted USA Today over their ridiculous video describing a chainsaw bayonet as one of many possible modifications to an AR-15 rifle.
Apparently, the journalists at USA Today have been getting most of their information about guns from video games and television shows like The Walking Dead.
The otherwise serious video released on Twitter listed a chainsaw bayonet alongside other possible modifications. It seemed to stand out because, well, that's ridiculous.
Now they're getting absolutely roasted for it.

Here are a few of our favorite examples of other possible modifications to an AR-15 that mock the chainsaw bayonet slip-up.
That's a pretty serious AR-15 modification!
Even Star Wars fans got in on the mocking.
And of course...
The video game Gears of War likely came up the idea first (possibly where USA Today heard of it). However, a couple companies produced working chainsaw bayonets as a novelty during the zombie craze a few years ago.
Regardless, it's hard to believe a supposedly respectable publication would list a chainsaw bayonet as an AR-15 modification.
In any case, we might need to add the term "chainsaw bayonet" to the list of terms that gun owners hate.
