Subject: Bees Hold Shoppers Hostage

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Marauding bees held shoppers hostage inside a Los Angeles liquor store for two hours on Thanksgiving while engaging firefighters in a tense standoff, officials said Friday.

The bees showed up suddenly at the front door of Sam's Mini Market in the northern Los Angeles suburb of Chatsworth at about 11 a.m. Thursday as customers were making last-minute holiday purchases, said store owner Kawaljit Singh. "A lot of them came in a second," Singh told Reuters. "One customer, he was trying to walk out and he said, 'Look at that!' There was a dark cloud."

Funny you should mention it but I agree. Bees are about the only insect I like (except for butterflies & fireflies) - they have great colouring, they buzz, they have good memories, they make honey and they only sting you if they have to.... oh, and they can dance...
