Have you ever watched the show “My Strange Addiction” on TLC? Once I start, I can’t stop until I see the entirety of just how ridiculous some people are. Some episodes include the likes of people eating dirt, performing daily coffee enemas, or those attracted to inanimate objects. But a recent episode takes the cake.
Meet Margaret, a 53-year-old woman who is addicted to stinging herself with bees. What madness is this? Bees?! Apparently, Margaret heard that bee venom therapy was helpful to those who suffer severe symptoms of arthritis. Oh, and it apparently makes for mind-blowing sex. For 10 years, she’s been stinging herself with bee venom around 15 times a day; if she misses a day, she suffers serious withdrawals.
Apparently, the rush hurts so good that she keeps coming back for more. In fact, this chick has a beehive in her backyard where she harvests the bees. To make the process easier, she even has a bee vacuum to suck them up efficiently. According to Margaret, she keeps a bee in her purse “just in case she needs a sting throughout the day.”
Margaret reiterates that every time she stings herself, she knows she’s taking the life of an innocent bee. It chokes her up so much, in fact, that the poor thing sometimes sits outside the beehive and plays her flute for them while shedding a few tears for the fallen soldiers. This sounds like something out of a Will Ferrell comedy, if you ask me!
If you don’t believe this insanity for yourself, check out the video. Looks like Margaret has found herself a therapy that’s the bee’s knees! All awful puns and jokes aside, if you’re allergic to bee venom, I’d highly warn against trying this therapy at home. Bee careful! (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)
