The Post making the case that it will be the Summer of the Bees


On Friday, we wrote about how this could be The Summer of the Bees... (taking over for the Summer of the Bedbugs and the Summer of the Rats...)

Well! According to the Post today... police were called to 30 different bee clusters buzzing around buildings, light poles and fire hydrants this spring...

There are now 161 hives registered with the city Health Department, compared to just three in 2010 — the year beekeeping was legalized, the Post notes.

"It hasn't even started yet," said Anthony Planakis, the police officer who for 18 years has been charged with removing the hair-raising clusters. "Within the next week, we're going to be bombarded again."

You've been warned!

So the same lunatics that advocated for bikes lanes as a greening, and delivered nothing but emissions from snarling trafic are now subjecting us to their sustainable honey production wich will be nothing but a fucking pain in the ass. Get these half baked transplants out of this city now. Let them go fucking "re-envision" their own fucking towns.

Unbeelievable! (Sorry.)

When I'm stung by 197,000 bees and am rushed to the emergency room with a throat full of tongue, I'll be sure they note the cause of death as "Died of organic, free range, hydroponic, sustainable, craft, hemp bees."

Long live the bees. But honey is not vegan.
