At school today, the professor showed us a video about so-called “killer bees” near Tucson. A man in the video described calling a bee keeper to his home to remove a hive on his porch. The bee keeper’s tampering with the hive prompted the bees to swarm around him, sending him running to his vehicle and injuring him. The homeowner’s wife arrived home, and she was chased away by the bees. Then the bees killed a neighbor’s dog.
That is all very sad, but the video panned across the cover of a local newspaper describing the story, and the headline made me laugh out loud in the middle of the classroom:
