News, but not the serious kind
President uses protection, but why?
Welcome back to the always popular feature, Stuff Maybe we Should Have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.
- Has Brazil come under attack from swarms of killer bees?
- Does that nation’s leader have an irrational phobia?
- Has he been summoned to a meeting with The Queen Bee?
- Who is that dude laughing in the face of painful stinging death?
And by the way, if bees are such a fricking threat, should the president really be waving his bare hand like that?
Sadly, our caption offers no clue. But I’ll tell you one thing. If we posted a shot of Barack Obama in a “bee protection outfit,” I’ll bet the caption would offer some hint as to why.
