I have to admit I chuckled a little because I could just see this happening.

And Nobody Got Stung.

Me either

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,

Oops...I suppose for the average joe it would scare the heebie jeebies out of them...although if I was concerned I'd have thought that a pickuptruck can out run a swarm of bees.
