A prank that’s pure evil: convincing people they’re being swarmed by bees

  • So you’re just minding your own business in a public park and you spy what appears to be a beekeeper nearby fiddling around in a bush or tree. Then suddenly he starts running and screaming toward you, beehive on a stick, screaming that there are bees. He does this while an iPhone app plays a loud buzzing sound. Chances are you’re not going to pause to see if he’s telling the truth.
