Experiencing Two Terrible Things, Together, At Once


Save us now.

A truck carrying 20 million bees overturned in Delaware two days ago.  
It took 13 hours to "clean up" the mess.   After 90% of the bees were "lost."
The driver and two passengers suffered "minor" injuries of 50-100 bee stings each. If those are considered minor injuries I don't want to know what major ones are.

But, I think the scariest thing of all is this nugget from the end of the news story:

"State police spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack says on-call bee handlers worked with firefighters to spray water to disperse and calm the bees. It was the first time state police used their official honeybee swarm removal plan."

Delaware state police have an OFFICIAL HONEYBEE SWARM REMOVAL PLAN. Holy fuck!
