A Bee And A Bam

This Morning's bumble-bee-bam story reminded me of a girl I went to college with. She had one of those "You've got to be kidding me" names. It's bad enough when your parents saddle you with a horrendous last name... but when they give you a wack-ass first name too? That's cruel.

...and that's what her parents did to her...

She of wack-ass-name was driving to class one fine spring day, be-bopping along to the tunes she had cranked at top volume. The windows were rolled down.

A bee flew in.

She tried shooing the bee out the window. No luck. She tried swatting the bee. No luck. She tried shouting at the bee. No luck.

And then, she remembered that a local woman had been raped recently, and that she'd picked up a little something to defend herself with - should the need arise.

Well, there was a bee flying around inside her car! An agitated bee no less. What more of a need could there be for self-defense than this? Rrrrrrrrrrrrrright?


With that in mind, she picked up her self-defense weapon: a can of mace... and... well... you can see where this is going, can't you?

Inside a moving car with the windows rolled down, she tried to mace the bee - which means she ended up macing herself on an open highway at sixty five miles per hour. She totaled her car in the process.

I'm sure the police gave her a breathalyzer test when they arrived, and that makes me wonder: Why is there no stupalyzer test?

"I'm sorry miss, but, according to the test results, you're too stupid to be allowed to drive. I'm going to need you to hand over the keys."

"Don't blame me for the bam" says the bee...

"Just blame sheer stupidity!"

of course, now we want to know her name. i'm sure you're just protecting the innocent, but you can't go around talking about how horrendous this name was and then not tell us what it is! :P

Ahhh, her name. Well... I've learned that anything posted here can and often does get back to the person mentioned. Call it the power of Google :)
