I come to bury the bees, not to praise them...

BEADS?

Now I see bees, I won.

Will they be reading the name of each bee off a list? That would be a long service
 
2013-06-27 08:16:29 AM  
For some reason, there's been no buzz about this funeral.
 
2013-06-27 08:18:06 AM  
They're saying it will be a beeutiful ceremony.
No, really, the entire town is abuzz with talk and anticipation.
 
2013-06-27 08:18:18 AM  
I will not bee there.

Westboro Baptist announces they'll attend to protest in 3... 2... 1...

I wonder how the discovered the deaths.  You see... bees usually make a lot of noise.  NO NOISE suggests... no bees.

Bee careful with jokes like that or you'll bee sorry.

Sounds like the chemical is a gift that keeps on giving. Great for bees, but special for birds, wildlife and kid's brains. Plus people will pay extra to buy food from a place that doesn't spray it.

It would be hard to come up with a good eulogy.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to remember some bees.  They were bees.  Then they died.  Now they're dead bees.

Honey, comb through this thread and see if you can find any posts that don't drone on with bee puns.

We should respect their beereavement.

You people think this is funny, and use the loss of such a precious resource to make your puns.

Well, your words hurt.

They sting.

Banned on the Run: "Environmental activists are attention whores. Ric Romero reporting."


The plight of the world's bees and pollinators cannot be overstated.

Oh, FFS. I live in Portland, and like the overall progressive/liberal atmosphere, but some of these people are just dipshiats.  Sometimes I'm reminded  why Portlandia was created.
 
2013-06-27 01:27:45 PM  
These kind of action make me reconsider moving to OR.  Is this indicative of the state as a whole, or just the weirdos in Portland?  I thought us Californians were crazy, but this is just... damn.

Nothing says "classy" like a funeral at Target (parking lot)

Bees.


BEES?

I have to bee honest, I really want to see some hippies sobbing in a target parking lot.  Hopefully the news will cover it so we can get some video.
 
2013-06-27 04:46:21 PM  
I'm sure all the surviving bees appreciate what the mourning humans are doing for them.
