Odd Things I Saw - The 'Bee Beard'

For this week's Odd Things I saw, I came across these odd pictures. Chinese men competed in the 'bee beard' contest held in Shaoyang of the PRC's Hunan Province over the weekend. The aim was to 'wear' as many bees as they can at one time.

The men were unprotected against the large sum of bees, wearing only shorts, goggles and nose plugs. A 42 year old Chinese farmer managed to wear 26 kg of bees. (26kg is the size of a child!!! Can you imagine having that many bees on you???)

Unfortunately, their valiant efforts did not result in breaking the Guinness Record. The title is held by Mark Biancaniello, who wore 39kg of bees in 1998.

Do not try this at home!
