While promoting his “upcoming animated film, _Bee Movie_”:http://www.beemovie.com/, Jerry Seinfeld “joked”:http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/r_m/2007/06/21/2007-06-21_jerry_does_some_hive_talkin.html to the _Daily News_ that bees have the perfect society. He went on:
“They have no crime, they have no drugs, they have no rape. A little rape, but it’s not that bad.”
And what happened next? As you can imagine, “anti-rape activists are enraged”:http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2007/06/jerry-seinfeld-bee-movie.php (although it’s unclear whether this was a spontaneous response or just the result of Radar Online’s fire-starting). Apparently, bee rape is no laughing matter. Except that I’m laughing right now… oops.
