    It's a little known fact that bees can sense and avoid the presence of evil. In unrelated news this beekeeper was overheard remarking "no bees for 8 years and suddenly they swarm."

    The House beekeeper tries to explain to the bees to only pollinate the red rose for Michelle.

    I guess President Bush forgot to get rid of you before he left office. It is just like him to leave a mess for the Obama Administration to clean up.

    The Obama’s sweetness even attracts bees to the White House. Notice you never see a bee swarm anywhere near Darth Cheney.
