This Was Just A Warning

Like I said, we need to leave the bees alone:

LIGONIER, Ind. (AP) — A swarm of honeybees temporarily disrupted a charity fundraising event, but no one reported being stung.

Authorities evacuated the area Saturday after the swarm of about 3,000 bees emerged from the woods around the West Noble High School football field, where 700 people were participating in a fundraising walk for the American Cancer Society.

The bees landed on a large umbrella shading the campsite of one of the more than 60 teams taking part in the 24-hour event in the town, 40 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.

A local beekeeper, Matt Green, used a smoke machine to calm the bees and coax them into a beehive he brought to the field. The event was delayed about 45 minutes.

Don’t make the bees angry. You wouldn’t like them when they’re angry.

Also: Bees can be coaxed into beehives other than their own? I find that surprising, but I am admittedly not an expert on bees.

    Burns: I suggest you leave immediately.

    Homer: Or what? You’ll release the dogs or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you?

    I’ve been seeing some very disturbing stories about Robotic Richard Simmons Collapse Disorder.

    Hi Kvatch, you read my mind…I was going to say at least they got bees…
