Soon to be either a made-for-TV-movie, or a 10-second segment on Fox's "When (plural noun) Attack!"

It's from a book
"The Dreadful Lemon Sky"
John D. McDonald.
A Travis McGee thriller.

Sounds like a Hanna- Barberra conspiracy/
2002-03-29 06:02:17 PM  
Investigators believe Webb accidentally backed into a ditch as he tried to escape the bees. He jumped off and somehow ended up beneath the heavy equipment.

Well it looks like they have it all figured out, hehe
2002-03-29 06:02:51 PM  
It's the Killer Bees!
2002-03-29 06:02:57 PM  
I thought it said: Man killed in freak accident with beer and bulldozer
So I says to myself, I says. I don't see no beer
2002-03-29 06:03:18 PM  
"Damn...there are so many bees around hear that they sound like a freaking...splat."

It wasn't the bees that caused it. It was a malfunctioning hydrocilator.
2002-03-29 06:06:46 PM  
i hate it when that happens. attacked by bees while operating heavy machinery. and thinking about beer, i guess.

better typo would have been:

man dies after being attacked by beer.
2002-03-29 06:10:54 PM  
Fire officials say efforts to save the man were hampered by the swarming bees.

Maybe the guy's not the sharpest tack in the box.

Regardless, if someone's trapped under a farking bulldozer, you'd think the firefighters could stand a few dozen bee stings to save the guy.

What kind of wimp-ass firefighters are these?
2002-03-29 06:12:04 PM  
Mmmmm.... Beerdozer.
2002-03-29 06:14:48 PM  
Bees don't kill people, bulldozers kill people.
2002-03-29 06:15:07 PM  
True, ScreamingInDigital. That's not the WTC spirit, just standing there watching this guy die cuz some bees are nearby.
2002-03-29 06:20:40 PM  
If this isn't jumping from the frying pan into the fire I don't know what is.
2002-03-29 06:25:27 PM  
Sounds like this guys was in training for the "Upper Class Twit competition".

Any boxes of matches nearby?
2002-03-29 06:31:16 PM  
Would someone mind photoshoping pooh bear behind the wheel of a bulldozer with a beer? I know its in bad taste, but it would be kind of funny. Oh, and give him a little construction hard hat too!

That's gonna leave a bruise....

God wanted this guy. Bad.

No that's just me. I had beans for lunch.

Mugatu, if your going to criticize someone get there name right.
2002-03-29 07:13:49 PM  
I'm glad I'm not the only person that saw a connection to the bee scene in Tommy Boy. Farley was the best.
2002-03-29 07:16:02 PM  
Now all you farkers think there is a street here in Houston called Lou Ed. It's actually Louetta. Who wrote this?
2002-03-29 07:16:15 PM  
Sorry Guko
2002-03-29 07:17:56 PM  
Okay Muguta.

L00k everyone, the Devilspawn tard know teh HTML
2002-03-29 07:23:35 PM  
Ok, let's think about this...
rescuers go in to help... headline reads
6 dead after 5 rescuers attempt to rescue construction worker trapped under bulldozer and surrounded by killer bees.
Well, the editor would probably shorten that to "6 dead from killer bees and bulldozer"

Man, what a way to go, though.
2002-03-29 07:31:53 PM  
There was a guy on a History Channel special on tanks last night who was talking about how a German Panzer stopped right on top of him with him between the treads.
If the driver had known he was there what they typically would have done is spin the tank in circles a few times grinding whoever was underneath into hamburger.
2002-03-29 07:51:28 PM  
Anyone find it mildly entymologically ironic that he was driving a Caterpillar bulldozer at the time. Hmmmmmm.....I smell a conspiracy here. Damn bugs.

True story...

When I was 11 I used to drive a box blade tractor for my dad when I went to work with him. I was clearing a field with the tractor and ran over a hive of those big black and yellow bees. They bagan attacking me and biting me all over. I jumped off the tractor and ran as fast as I could, swatting bees away from me as I ran. I finally reached a safe distance and looked back and noticed that I didn't take the tractor out of gear. It was slowly rollong toward a steep drop off, which led to a lake about 50' down. I ran back to the tractor, swatting and being stung by bees even more so, and took it out of gear and shut it off. I ended up being stung about 45 times (I'm 11 years old)I puked up yellow liquidy crap while I struggled to walk the 2 miles to where my dad was at the job site..........I lived though. :)

JOHNDX: Glad you told us that you lived. I was worried there. (Cool story. Bees suck don't they?)
2002-03-29 08:08:28 PM  
That's some story, JOHNDX. I lost my tractor privledges at 14 because I was driving in 5th gear ("street" gear) with a bunch of friends onboard through a freshly plowed bumpy field. I was probably fortunate to not have squashed a friend or two under the tires.

Hey Angstmonger! Isn't Lou Ed right down the road from us?

Bee's don't kill people, Bee's with bulldozers kill people.
2002-03-29 08:38:30 PM  
Bees suck don't they? No they bite :)

Borg9 I actually knew a guy who got ran over, pelvic area, as a kid. Playing tractor games on the farm n stuff with his buddies. He walks kinda funny still. Crushed his entire pelvic area.....
2002-03-29 08:39:59 PM  
sounds like something from the x-files.... very weird. i am assuming the official cause of death was the bulldozer and not innumerable bee stings? ouch. 'tis a sad thing.
2002-03-29 08:46:45 PM  
Bees bite? News to me. What's the stinger for, radio reception?
2002-03-29 08:48:14 PM  
"sounds like something from the x-files.... very weird. i am assuming the official cause of death was the bulldozer and not innumerable bee stings? ouch. 'tis a sad thing."

Lets not rule out the conspiracy theory, friggin bee's were'nt content being just bees, they trained until they became "killer bee's" Now a guy just "happens" to get stung to death while driving his bulldozer? I don't think so...the truth is out there
2002-03-29 08:59:17 PM  
SID radio reception LOL

You, are of course, right again.
