Heeeelp...I'm covered in bees!

Quote from today's BBC website about a truck overturning in Canada. Said truck was full of 12 million honey bees.

"The lorry was carrying 330 crates of honey bees when it tipped over on a ramp in St Leonard, New Brunswick" Ok, unfortunate accident, many bees escaped, so far so good.

However....the Deanna Troi* of Canada:

"Richard Duplain, vice president of the New Brunswick Beekeepers Association, told AP news agency the bees would quite likely be angered by their ordeal.

"You certainly don't want to go walking through a field of disoriented, agitated and wet honey bees," he said. "

I bet he has a degree in bees.

*Speciality...stating the bleeding obvious. Many furious Klingons on screen, all bellowing and raging and waving pointy sticks..."I'm sensing anger, Captain."

Councilor Cleavage was quite adept at stating the obvious, eh?

Did I spell "Councilor" correctly? I know I spelled cleavage correctly. ;)

Earl, I think we spell it differently, but hey, who was checking? Not seen the remake. The original scared me far too much.

Badgerdaddy....ba-doom tish!

Mr Farty, I know! Such a shock!
