One of my long-time apian heroes! Sorry Burt is gone. Oh yeah, bees! We love 'em.

Holy Cow, that's my bike! I used to have one almost identical to Burt's Beemer there. Miss it more than the Harley, too.

What was he doin' with the lips of a ten year old?
I ain't going there. I ain't going anywhere bad.
I know, it's a dumb joke but somebody has to tell it.
