    An Irish beekeeper has failed to take the world record for attracting the most bees onto his body after managing a 200,000-strong 'bee beard'

    Wearing little more than underpants and goggles, Philip McCabe, 59, failed to top the 1998 record set in the US of 87.5lb (40kg), or 350,000 bees.

    It's done from a long way away with a very large magnifying glass Snap...what they do is count the legs and then simply divide by six....simple if you think about it........

    There's an old saying that if you keep Bees and someone close in the Family dies, you must go down and tell the bees first..........



    Which then depresses the little S+ds, then they go off and sting all and sundry........Never tell a bee anything, they can't handle it.........



    Cochise, :cool:

    The part that is really sad, is he had all those bees on him and went through all that trouble...and still did not beat the record. Looks like someone has too much time on their hands :p

    Some people strive for individual and team athletic achievements and accomplishments.

    Others try their hand at entreprenurial skills or to climb the corporate ladder.

    Many try to make grounds in the financial field.

    Some throw their hat into the political arena.

    And others.....

    Well.....

    Hmmm........not sure what to say :(

    As usual, Cochise had the most plausible explanation. It's the Shakespearian Theory..............."To Bee or not to Bee".........that was the answer!!

    Play on, big ed
