    It just bees that way sometimes

    LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – My buddy, Gerund, dropped by this week with a bumblebee sting that had swelled his face up into a catcher’s mitt. He asked for a beer and when I gave him one he could barely part his pillow lips to allow in the delicious nectar. He looked like Angeline Jolie with a hangover. Oxford Town columnist Jim Dees and the boys attempt to film bees this week at great personal risk. Check out the hilarity in this issue of Oxford Town. (April 8, 2010, Page 6)
