Nicolas Cage had the right idea about bees.
Here’s a brilliant BioShock parody of his dramatic performance in Wicker Man:
But a flight crew learned that bees are bad for a different reason too.
According to CNN, a flight crew had to turn back after realizing there was a mechanical issue with the flight.
The sole cause? A single bee lodged in an exterior instrument.
The plane landed without incident and all passengers arrived safely back at their point of departure.
Except for the bee, of course.
This is the first time I’ve heard of a single bee affecting a flight. A few years ago, thousands of bees decided a Delta plane was their new home and they had to be removed by a beekeeper.
I don’t recommend bringing bees in fight even though Pocket Planes always offers “angry bees” as cargo you can deliver.
But I guess that’s better than what this man did–driving around with five hives of bees loose in his car.
