So the other day Angela came over to my side of the office and started talking about swarming bees. And she said, "You know why they swarm, don't you?!"
I said, "Because they're mad?"
She said, "No! Well, yeah! But it's because they've been Africanized! Bees didn't used to swarm before the introduction of African bees!"
I said, "Angela, that's racist of you to assume that an animal can only demonstrate aggression if it's from Africa."
She said, "I saw a show on it!"
I said, "Bees used to swarm all the time."
She said, "No, it was on a show I saw!"
I said, "I am quite familiar with the plight of Yogi Bear, and every time he and Boo-Boo would steal their picinic baskets, they had to high-tail it out of there before the bees came." She left in disgust.
A little later in the day, I called her up and said, "And another thing: Winnie the Pooh always had to run away from swarming bees and he's a European bear and--" but she hung up on me.
