    Uh, Mike, you didn't get the memo. We're not calling it "global warming" any more, cause too many people question that when it's 12 below in Houston. Now we call it "global climate change" so we can blame everything on it without actually proving anything.

    Besides, the French are just using the code word "hornets", it's really an invasion of Hungarian performing midgets, but we can't call them that cause it's not politically correct, and it makes them look like pansies. They tried "le petite garcon" but that didn't go over well, everyone thought they were being invaded by the Vienna Boys Choir.

    So they just went with "hornets".

    Perhaps they were invaded by a certain basketball team from a US city with a strong inspiration française?

    The fact that he's the Bee Surveillance Spokesperson implies that there are a whole lot of BS people out there, and he's just their mouthpiece. I wonder what some of the other titles are?

    Oh oh oh! I want to be Minister of Sting.

    We need to find someone really anal to be Manager of Yellow Stripe Width Measurement Team.

    And our resident gourmet chefs can become Director(s) of Filling English Muffin Nooks With Honey.

    I wonder if those guys drink lots of mead. . .

    Manager of the Insect Information Service is, one might surmise, the British equivelent to the Bee Surveillance Team?

    Regardless, they should all be required to wear those SNL bee suits.

    I particularly like the movie trailer guy voice over and the ominous battle background music.
