To bee or not to bee?

May 1, 2009

Blog Guy, I was interested in the item you had with the dude dressed like an angel to pick up hot chicks. I think that’s what I need, some kind of a new gimmick.

Have you thought of covering your body with 50,000 live bees?

Would that work?

Are you kidding? Chicks LOVE bees! You show up at happy hour looking like this guy, you’re golden! Just practice this classic pickup line: “Would you care to go back to my residence and enjoy my bees and my tennis shoes?”

Sold! I’m heading for the bee store now. Allow me to compliment you on not filling this post with a bunch of juvenile puns like “Hey, honey!” and “I’ve got hives” and stuff like that.

Hey, do you really think I’m that bumbling?

I tried to come up with a stinging rebuke but couldn’t. Anyway, I like his beerd.

Bees are cool, but I don’t think I’d wear them to pick up chicks. Our family though has just started our own beehive for fun. You can read about it here
