  • I think I'll just go home now...



    Hundreds of thousands of honeybees were suddenly set loose on an Oklahoma interstate Tuesday after a truck hauling the insects overturned.

    The accident on southbound Interstate 35 in Garvin County, south of Oklahoma City, was first reported to authorities at around 1 p.m. local time. KOKH-TV reported that dozens of crates containing thousands of bees were scattered along the nearby exit ramp.

    An image released by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol showed a Garvin County sheriff's department vehicle coated by bees. Remarkably, Sheriff Larry Rhodes told the Daily Oklahoman that the deputy driving the vehicle, Carl Zink, suffered only one bee sting in the incident.

    Did anybody else have an instant flashback to that scene in The Swarm where the people trapped in the bee covered car flipped on the windshield wipers?

    Also, very glad Deputy Zink came away with only one sting, and that he isn't allergic.

    (Yes, Monty, he probably would have an epi pen within reach, but in such a high intensity situation with so much going on, it's possible to not notice one under the clothes.
    Yes, Monty, one with a known allergy should check, but see, being a real LEO and a man of character, he would be thinking of others and not focused only on himself.

    No, Monty, we don't want any of your random blather about bees, stings or southbound I-35, so now you can just focus on the actual topic.)
    ~~~~~

    FFS, please tell us that's enough all about you, for now, at least?

    Any of Deputy Zink's department brothers and sisters out there, does he have any good new nicknames yet?

        Is this what's known as a sting operation?

            Those SUV patrol units are sweet, or he had a box of doughnuts on the front seat.

              Totally a sting operation. Good thing that nobody broke out in hives.

                I don't want to bee repetitive, but I'm sure Deputy Zink's honey was glad he got away safely.

                    Minor typo, fixed it for ya.

                    And leave it to the cynical LEO, the last element in the car that you'd think of as sweet enough to attract such a mob is the deputy himself?

                        Just remember when you stop me for double the limit racing away from the bee mob that I was in the furthermost lane from your position for officer safety.

                        And there is a selection of ice cold sodas in back if you're ready for your much deserved break. (factory sealed and with a handful of alcohol swabs for officer safety AND reassurance...)

                          Ouch, sorry you had to go through that! I don't mind one or even a few as long as we're not driving down the freeway with a pizzed off confused one in the car divebombing a nervous driver. But this photo here is bone chilling.

                          Too many little holes they could get into the passenger compartment, that I wouldn't have a clue where all to keep watch.

                            With all those bees buzzing about...I'd be a total girl and scream.
                            Would that do me any good?
                            Well, no.
                            But I'd scream anyway.

                              Being allergic to beeds, I couldn't even watch the story on the news. I'm shocked (literally) that the deputy only got stung once.
