Panic ensued and the blood curling screams of small children rang out Monday as Barack Obama read “Where the Wild Things Are” during the Easter Egg Roll event.
Bees were attacking.
Obama tried to calm the children down, claiming “bees are good.”
“They won’t harm nothing. They won’t sting you.”
The president then began to read Maurice Sendak’s children’s book, hoping to distract the crying children.
“Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!”
The White House has its own beehive on the South Lawn and uses the honey in recipes, but where was Charlie Brandt –the official White House beekeeper — during all this mess?
