    What we need here to get rid of these is for Michelle to come out and slap the Queen Bee on the back like she did to the Queen of England !!

    Bill Clinton, well-versed in the art of taking care of things in the bushes, declines to help with the bee infestation, so the White House carpenter has to step in to save the day.

    It is a little known fact that bees are able to sense and avoid the presence of evil. This beekeeper was overheard saying that it is strange how he hasn't had any calls to the White House for a little over 8 years now....

    Memo to Robert Gibbs:
    Apparently bees and press correspondents go into dormancy when you blow smoke into their hive.

    Michelle Obama has gone a little too far with this whole Victory Garden theme, what with the White House Honey Hive project and all.

    Slashing the budget to deal with the deficit even impacts White House security. Latest technology security measures give way to White House security bees.

    Negotiations are taking place between the White House and its new bee hive. As it turns out, they're a union hive and have moved to the front gate until Obama agrees not to smoke in the garden.
