    Although the White house is the most secure building in the world and able to stop 99% of any enemy attacks, the honey bee continues to bypass all security barriers.

    In a desperate attempt to control the pest problem at the white house, the Obamas bring in "the bee whisperer" in hopes that nice comments and kind words will coax the hive to do as told.

    The Obama family 'nectar' attracts a much wider range of wildlife compared to the wildlife that buzzed around Bill Clinton.

    Reflecting a very different value system, the phrase 'White House Honey Hive' takes on a whole new meaning under Obama compared to Bill Clinton's Presidential legacy.

    In an effort to boost lagging honey sales, a group of bees decided to market their Sweet Victory Honey to White House visitors. However, they defaulted on their property loan and were promptly evicted from the area. White House staff offered "no comment" when asked about the possibilities of a bailout.

    Due to budgetary considerations, the Obama daughters will be raising bees instead of a puppy. You know that's gotta sting.

    While it seemed like a good idea at the time, using swarming bees to keep the paparazzi away was deemed a little too extreme!
