Boo Bees Halloween Shirt
The Halloween shirt with the words: “Boo Bees” and 2 cute ghost ones on the chest, which make it one of the hottest shirts to wear on Halloween! But do you know why bees appear on Halloween? And behind the simple design of this shirt, there is also an interesting story.
Well, no more wasting time, let’s get started!
The origin of Boo Bees Shirt
This shirt has been controversial for a while. Staten Island parents blasted a local boutique – owned by the “Mob Wives” star’s sister – to sell children’s “BOO BEES” shirts, featuring honey bees on the chest area.
“It’s fine if some adult bimbo wants to wear it — but a young impressionable girl? It’s insulting as a woman and a mother. We don’t need clothing like that out there influencing impressionable young minds.” A mother of three told The Post about these shirts.
But is it really worth getting this upset about? Remember the old “bee boo” joke? Here’s how you tell it:
First, it requires you to be under 10 and just learn which words might make your parents angry when you say them, like “damn”, “hell” and “poo”. Then you approach one of your classmates and, making sure the teacher doesn’t hear, you whisper, “What did the ghost say to the bee?” When your classmate says, “What?” you choked out the last sentence: “Boo bee!” And then you both laugh and laugh because boobs and ass and farts and toilets are funny.
So let’s describe this shirt a bit. It looks comfortable, and perfect for Halloween. Additionally, there are two bees in spooky costumes that lie directly on the wearer’s chest, if any, their boobees are. Or, as another outlet hilariously described it, “two bees dressed in spooky costumes – with their exposed stingers seemingly simulating nipples.”
At first, the shop’s owner, Janine Detore, who designed the shirt with her 19-year-old daughter, said the shirt was just a fun shirt for Halloween and explained the pun in detail, may think that people just didn’t understand the joke:
“The ‘boo’ stands for the costume — they’re ghosts. The ‘bees’ not only stands for actual bees, but we call our clients bees because they are bee-tween, just turning into a teenager, and up.”
But shortly after saying the shirts were a play on words, as they would suggest, Detore tried to turn the story in his favor by claiming that the store was ultimately trying to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Detore said:
“One of my friend’s daughters is 17 years old and she has breast cancer. She and anyone her age would love that shirt. As a matter of fact, she owns that BOO BEE shirt. Breast cancer awareness is what we should be focusing on. Not just the shirt.”
In short, whatever the reason, the Boo Bees Shirt with a fancy and impressive design has really become a hot trend at that time, and even now.
Boo Bees Shirt – Best Shirt For Halloween
Did you know that honey bees are also associated with Halloween? The custom of tricking or treating originated with Dutch farmers in the 16th century. The farmers spent the summer working hard in their fields and they watched bees move from flower to flower, collecting sweet nectar at each stop. Inspired by hardworking bees, at the end of the harvest season, farmers dress up as honey bees and go door to door collecting sweets and creating the first Halloween tradition.
Because at that time the concept of Halloween was not widely available, farmers used a sophisticated way of threatening each household by saying “Trick or Sweet”. Since the farmers had finished their harvest, they spent their days crisscrossing the countryside, performing ‘tricks’ such as throwing rotten eggs and old cabbage at houses that wouldn’t give them sweets. As the new custom spread, pumpkins were placed on the doorsteps of the participants in the trick or treat, symbolizing that they too had completed their harvest.
Although the legend of the origin of Halloween with the appearance of bees is vague, there are actually real-life Zombie bees, (aka Zombies) that roam at night in America. It’s a tiny parasitic fly, Apocephalus Borealis, that has recently switched from being a wasp and wasp parasite to a honey bee parasite. This fly quickly lands on the back of a bee and injects its eggs inside the bee. Then the fly eggs hatch and begin to eat the bee from the inside and they will appear after the bee dies.
When the larva begins to eat the bee, it actually becomes a walking corpse with parasites that cause strange behaviors in the affected bees. These bees leave the hive during the night, head out in a flight of the undead, stumbling aimlessly around the light, while presumably groaning in agony. Bees normally only go out in the light of the sunshine, so if you see a honey bee out at night, it’s probably a zombie.
