Live bees

Today I was shopping at WinCo, because everything is cheap there and they have lots of stuff in bulk there. One thing that gave me a major WTF moment was a bulk honey box that had a warning sign on it saying "Do not lift lid or bees will escape." LIVE BEES in a grocery store? OMG WTF! LOL! I put my ear up to the box to see if I could hear the bees, but nope. Funny moment. :-)

It only took us two or three times of noticing that sign before we lifted the lid and prepared to freak out. Nothing but a tub of honey.

We honestly think a Discordian somehow snuck it into standard WinCo procedure. Hail Eris!

Our infiltration has begun. First, the honey. Then... the Swiss.

Reminds me of Markoff Cheney in Illuminatus! by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, putting up signs from "the Management" to drive people crazy. :-)

Honeybees are too valuable these days with the way they're disappearing and the way we rely on them so heavily to pollinate EVERYTHING. No way would they bee on sale at a grocery store.

I can't claim to be the queen of bad puns, but when you hand me a straight line like that you can't expect me to beehive myself!

The woman who lived across from us in Jenkintown kept bees, and blogged about it. (Sadly, said blog appears to be gone.) We kept meaning to come on over just to take a look, but never did. She was real cool.
