Most people couldn’t imagine staying in their car with ONE bee buzzing around for the ride. Pretty much everybody would rather jump off a cliff than stay in a car with about 3,000 bees inside. Well, that was the reality for one man.
ABC News reported that a North Carolina Beekeeper Wallace Leatherwood should thank and curse his profession for getting him into this life-threatening situation.

Leatherwood had to drive 40 miles before he could stop and, hopefully, leave his car unharmed with 3,000 bees buzzing around him.

When the news broke on Twitter, people were buzzing to use their best pop culture references to make light of the un-bee-lieveable story.
Thank goodness Wallace was able to keep his calm and get safely home, we definitely wouldn’t be able to!
