Attack of the Killer Bees

So the other day I went down to the mailbox to get my mail, and I heard some loud buzzing as I was taking out my letters. I reached back into the mailbox to get the rest of the letters, and then I jumped back about a foot in surprise and let out a loud yell. The buzzing was actually coming from inside the mailbox, and when I took a closer look, it seemed that some bees had set up a nest, INSIDE my postbox!

Needless to say this makes getting the mail a tad problematic, and yesterday I fished it out with a pair of tongs while standing a respectable distance away. Luckily Shoichi brought some industrial strength bee-killer around last night, so we should be able to get rid of the nest soon. And hopefully Shoichi will help me with the actual dispatching of the bees as well, since I'm a complete pussy when it comes to any kind of apiary extermination.
