August 20, 2011 Bee Man

In a competition to attract bees, this beekeeper is wearing only goggles and shorts. What about nose plugs and ear plugs? If I was a visiting bee, I might wander into these dark holes to see where I could make some honey.

His competitor was a bit more cautious and wore (bamboo?) nose plugs to keep the curious bees at bay.



The bee-attracting contest was held in Shaoyang, in the Hunan Province of China. The beekeepers used queen bees they had raised to attract other bees.

They stood on scales and in 60 minutes, Wang Dalin, completely covered in bees, was declared the winner, weighing in at 57 pounds.

Lv Kongjiang, pictured above, attracted 50 pounds of bees to his body.

This is nothing compare to the 87 pounds of bees worn by animal trainer Mark Biancaniello, as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records in the category of "most pounds of bees worn on the body."

Aliantha  Saturday Aug 20 11:37 PM

I guess coming second wouldn't sting as much as coming third.

Griff  Monday Aug 22 05:15 PM

I came very close to brush hogging two separate active bald-faced hornet nests today. That would have been bad mojo. Last time I got a sting from one of those my arm got very large.



Aliantha  Tuesday Aug 23 09:47 PM

Holy crap, is that what he's saying? I always thought he was asking for some demons, or gremlins, or something like that.

Yeah, I guess he figured he couldn't die owing somebody something.

Hmmm, maybe get your wang stung?


ZenGum  Thursday Sep 1 08:19 AM

I've heard that the old Romans used to do just that, with a surgeon applying the bee sting. Lots of swelling and throbbing. Guess they liked it, kinky devils.
