Some Records Were Never Meant to Bee Broken

Irish Man Fails to Set World Bee Record
TIPPERARY, Ireland – An Irish man tried to break a world record Saturday by coaxing more than 350,000 bees to land on his body, but the bees just wouldn’t settle. In nearly two hours, Philip McCabe, 59, got only 200,000 black bees — or 60 pounds of them — to cover him…
… The current Guinness Record of 350,000 yellow bees on the body, or 87.5 pounds, set in California in 1998.

Ya gotta feel for the guy. (Though the thought of this competition is enough to give me hives…)

    The rest of the bees were too tired to participate after flying so far. Everyone knows It’s a Long Way…
