Everyone knows about killer bees, at least, they think they know about them.  The media never fails in its perpetual mission of doom, gloom, and fear to keep us informed as to what's happening, or what might happen in the near future.  Don't forget about the worst case scenario; you should certainly worry about that.


Killer bees from South America are a good example of things we all should fear.  I've been hearing reports for years that killer bees are migrating and it won't be long before we'll find them north of the border - horror of horrors.  I have been listening to reports on South American killer bees since I was a child.  Now I'm fifty-eight years old and I'm still waiting for the killer bees to arrive.  Maybe they are stealth bees and have cloaking devices that prevent me from seeing them.  Maybe they are actually among us right now.  It doesn't matter what the media says, South American killer bees are at the bottom of my worry list.

I'll bet you haven't heard of the fleshing eating bees of Turkey.  They are absolutely the worst flesh eating bees on the planet, and what's more, they are relentless.  They show no mercy and won't go away until the only thing left is bare bones.  I've seen these guys in action.  Once they start their feeding frenzy, there is nothing you can do to dissuade them.  These flying piranhas keep eating until there's no flesh left.

The flesh eating bees showed up during a barbie in the cockpit of Exit Only.  We had chicken and Duetto had barbecued lamb chops.  Within minutes of bringing the lamb chops on board, the flesh eating bees made their invasion.  They flew everywhere, crawling over everything.  Since we didn't know about Turkish flesh eating bees, we didn't understand what was happening.  We tried to ignore the invaders that were turning Exit Only into their personal apiary.  It didn't work.  They called all their friends to join them and soon the situation was BEEcoming unBEElievable.  Swatting didn't discourage them; they completely ignored our flyswatters.  Thankfully, they didn't sting anyone.  The bees simply ignored us and went about their business.  They wanted only one thing - FLESH, FLESH, AND MORE FLESH.  These single-minded carnivores rejected our fried chicken and only wanted Duetto's lamb chops.  When we figured out the flesh eaters were hooked on lamb, we simply stripped most of the meat off the bones and set the scraps to one side.  The bees quickly congregated on the lamb chop bones for a feeding frenzy, devouring every molecule of meat right down to the bone.

I was glad that I was not a lamb chop or I would have been history.  Those flesh eaters would have stripped me clean.

I hope a major wire service - Associated Press or CNN - picks up on this story.  After all, flesh eating bees could mutate and migrate.  If they mutate to where they prefer human flesh, we're all in trouble.  And if they migrate to North America where we have no defenses against flesh eating bees, catastrophe could happen.  Homeland Security needs to know about these bees.

If there is just some way we could genetically engineer the flesh eating bees to develop a taste for killer bees, planet earth could be saved from South American killer bees.  That sounds like a plan to me.

I've added flesh eating bees to my worry list.  Flesh eating bees and killer bees are now vying for last and lowest position on my personal worry list.  I'm not sure which ones I should fear most.  When I get it figured out, I will let you know.


In spite of the killer bees and flesh eating bees, life is good.
