Stinger on Steroids

  • Graphic Vivien Leung

Why does the Stingers mascot have bulging vascular biceps? Never mind the fact that he’s a bee who has arms and wears a sweater, what I’m concerned about is the necessity for him to be absolutely ripped.

Can he even use those pythons for pollination? I seriously doubt he can perform his most basic duties as a bee if he insists on hitting the bench press five times a week and slamming down spoonful after spoonful of creatine each day.

It’s not just the guns, though. The bee has also extensively worked his lower body out. How does he do it exactly? Can bees lift weights with their stingers? The entire thing seems completely implausible.
