Bee Swarm Traps Workers in NY Game Store

NEW YORK - Thousands of bees have swarmed outside a New York City game store, trapping employees inside for hours, WABC-TV reported.

Worried employees looked out the window of the Manhattan store while talking on the phone as the bees clustered Saturday afternoon. A sign in the window warned: "Look! ... closed due to bee infestation."

Most passers-by avoided the GameStop store near Union Square, one of the city's busiest shopping areas. But Edward Albers tried to help. Dressed in regular clothes, he lured many bees into a box without getting stung.

NYC = pussiest city in the US. Any other city and the guys would have gone outside and killed the bees or ignored the stinging and went home.

As radical as Socomnick is, he does have something of a point. Bees aren't terribly territorial creatures, and they aren't very aggressive either. I have a garden around back of the house, which attracts lots of bees (the large black ones, which are actually supposed to be quite aggressive). I just walk through them and haven't had any problems so far.

But yeah, if it was wasps, then I would be scared.

I had a similar problem outside my home a couple of years back. I put on some long sleeves, pants, and commenced to putting a smack down on all the bees. I never got stung.

Still, Gamestop better raise the amount they pay for used copies of Yar's Revenge to prevent further trouble from our pollen collecting friends.

Snick was never wrong.

That's what I do to my women when they try to leave my house.

I'm like "Who said you could leave?" and then I point outside. And there they are... the bees... >:[
