Times Square, New York City's nexus of TGI Fridays, Sbarros, Arby's, Five Guys, Burger Kings, and one ill-fated Guy Fieri restaurant, never stops reinventing itself. Once a place where degenerates gathered to break the law, Times Square now offers a similar environment for a different kind of scourge: bees.
On Tuesday, a swarm of bees descended upon a hot dog cart in the middle of Times Square. They coated the Sabrett umbrella in a bee-blanket, drawing attention from every fanny-pack wearing tourist and sweaty policeman. In fact, the NYPD had to summon its official beekeeper (what well-funded police department doesn't have a beekeeper?) to control the unruly swarm.
Because bees don't usually flock en masse to the nearest processed meat vendor, NYC media pounced. A scrum of journalists hit the scene, and a bunch of livestreams were broadcast on social media.
Quick, enjoy this bee movie:
