I Knew It

“Thain is also a beekeeper, and used to keep hives in the backyard of his Rye, New York, estate…In his time as a beekeeper he was only stung once. ‘They don’t sting unless you aggravate them,’ he says.”

    John Thain would not comment on our question about when honey season begins because we never asked him.

    is Thain responsible for the Catastrophic Hive Collapse disorder? is it related to the sub-prime mortgage mess?

    Or what? You’ll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark they shoot bees at you?

    You have no idea what you did…. You blew out my supply of pink windshield fluid, it was tears of joy when those last drops of pink fluid squirk out, and now I can reload with the blue fluid.

    @ 12:36: you do know that you can mix the pink and the blue? mixing blue into pink doesn’t make the fluid gay.

    Once released, those dogs may not come back. Crying won’t bring them back, unless your tears smell like dog food. So you can either sit there crying and eating can after can of dog food until your tears smell enough like dog food to make your dogs come back or you can go out there and find your dogs.

  15. […] Of course it would remiss for Nomura to claim they were the first bankers to get in on the honey craze; John Thain has kept his own hive for years. […]

  16. […] In related news, you get three guesses as to which chief executive is foaming at the mouth with jealousy but you’ll only need one. […]

    I have discovered that smart real estate agents almost everywhere are warming up to FSBO Promotion. They are noticing that it’s not only placing a poster in the front yard. It’s really concerning building relationships with these retailers who someday will become buyers.
