I don’t pay much attention to sports, but I did pay attention when I heard that a Mariners-Angels game was delayed by bees. Of course, the reason I was paying attention was that it sounded like a cartoon villain plot.
As I understand it, the game was interrupted multiple times when bees came out of the stands and swarmed the field. To my understanding, this is not a normal occurrence in a baseball game.
However…doesn’t it sound like a cartoon villain plot? Perhaps Snidely Whiplash wanted the Angels to win and so he hatched a plot to stir up a bee hive and disrupt the game. Of course, he got stung and the plan went wrong, causing the Mariners to win.
Doesn’t that sound like something you’ve already seen happen in a cartoon? I don’t know if that was the case here, but I hope the ballpark kept their eye out for Snidely in the stands. Just in case.
