What’s the buzzz about? - Tommy and Cristi Hill of Brighton said they left the Chevy at home while they went out to eat and shop Sat­ur­day and returned to find bees swarm­ing under the hood and over the wind­shield of the vehi­cle.  The Hills said they do not want to kill the bees, so they tried strate­gies includ­ing dri­ving the vehi­cle 60 to 65 mph down U.S. 51 and tak­ing the Chevy through a car wash.  The cou­ple said the bees returned each time.  Local bee­keeper Bill Hughes said he tried to lure the bees into hives loaded in the back of his pickup truck, but “they’ve decided that car is their home.” Hughes esti­mated there are 25,000 bees swarm­ing the car and a queen bee can lay up to 2,000 eggs per day. The bee­keeper told the cou­ple to scare the bees off with a gar­den hose after dark and then park the car at least half a mile away. “There’s no telling what they’ll do,” Hughes said. He said the insects may just wait in a nearby tree for the Chevy to return.

Barely there  - Detroit area cops are just a hair away from arrest­ing a man on inde­cent expo­sure charges — for wan­der­ing into salons and ask­ing for a Brazil­ian wax!  The pervy perp has gone to almost a dozen places with his odd­ball request, mak­ing sure to give employ­ees a good look at the areas he’s request­ing work on since all he had on was a pair of sheer panty­hose! “The man walked to both sides of the counter, appar­ently so that every­one could clearly see him,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release. 

Unmen­tion­ables - A drunk dude livened up a karaoke night at a Florida Applebee’s by deliv­er­ing a per­for­mance that was not only unplugged — it was unclothed.  Jef­frey Thomp­son hopped onstage to sing and became “very involved with his per­for­mance,” accord­ing to one man who was there as Thomp­son became unhinged and began strip­ping off his cloth­ing. When a man­ager turned off the music to calm him down, he threw a punch, knock­ing the employee out cold.  A cop who was eat­ing at the restau­rant at the time, chased Thomp­son down and arrested him.  I hope he washed his hands before going back to his meal!
