Poor Lamar LaCaze. Poor poor guy. After that, I think I would have to mow the lawn in a snowsuit.
He was just mowing the lawn, when it happened. He must have struck one hell of a nest of bees, because he got 1200 stings. Ow ow ow ow oo oo ee ee.
I love the phrasing “When his son called him back, Mr LaCaze managed to tell him that he was “in bees”.” Yeah, in bees sounds about right when you hear this description.
When Mr LaCaze was found by his son, he was slumped over a fence and covered by the swarming bees.
“His head was black, solid bees,” he said.
“It looked like a bee hive on his head.”
Ow ow ow ow ow ow eek.
This little additional detail also makes me shiver all over.
Hospital staff managed to pull more than 1200 stingers from his body, as well as whole bees from his ears, nose, mouth and throat.
*shudder*. It also reminds me of that episode of Machines of Malice where they described the bee basket. You bastards. I watched this son of a bitch to make sure it was the right video.
Ug. That poor guy.
