• I know, shocking, right? A drunken Irishman! And that’s coming from a drunken Irishman, which really doesn’t make sense when you think about it. Another thing that doesn’t make sense? Drinking a bunch of beers and then deciding to climb up a ladder to remove a functioning beehive on their roof, but that is what Andrew Short, an amateur beekeeper (and drunken Irishman) in Melbourne, Australia decided to do after taking in the Melbourne Comedy Festival (and taking down a bunch of booze). Said Short: “A few beers maybe and a ladder, it’s a bad combination.” Yep, it’s pretty clear he’s an amateur beekeeper as most professional beekeepers don’t, you know, have beehives up on their roof.
