In a surprise twist for NFL fans on Sunday, the Detroit Lions, rather than competing aganst the Pittsburg Steelers as scheduled, faced off against what appeared to be a team of large, mutant bumblebees... and lost. The defeat came after the Lions entered halftime with a seven point lead, but a fourth quarter rally by the overgrown bees proved to be too much for the NFC North leaders to handle. The rally followed a fake field goal attempt by the Lions in which the bees, believed to be a particularly aggressive strain similar to the well-known Africanized honey bee, or "Killer Bee," except considerably larger and more humanoid, forced a fumble.
"Aaagggghhhhh!" said Lions running back Reggie Bush at one point during the game while being attacked by the giant, menacing bees. "Holy shit! Aaaggghhhhh!"
Bush ended the night with 12 rushing attempts for 31 yards, 2 receptions for 23 yards, 0 touchdowns, 1 fumble, and 27 extremely painful stings.
"Thank god I'm not allergic," Bush told The Outhouse as he rubbed aloe on himself.
"BBZZZZZZZZ!" replied one of the enormous, horrifying bee creatures as it chased a terrified Bush from the locker room.
Batman was reportedly in attendence, and offered the following comment to The Outhouse:
At press time, NFL officials were unable to find anything in the rule books disqualifying mutant bees from playing in the league, but were considering imposing unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on some of the bees for taunting Lions players after big plays.
