Whats that, it's a bird, it's a plane...damn it, it's Phil's doins. =P.

Step 1: Find a large bee or fly, the larger and noiser the better, catch him, and put him in a mason jar.

Step 2: Refrigerate at 40 degrees farenheit for one hour.

Step 3: While the bug is cooling down, construct a set of airplane wings (to fit the bug). Architects velum or balsa wood is best, 3 to 4 inches works well for your averaged sized wood bee.

Step 4: About this time, your bug should be pretty lethargic, if not unconscious. Glue his belly onto the middle of your wing set. Make SURE he's glued, as you don't want a lose and very pissed bee flying around.

Step 5: Put Bee-Plane into tupperware container. Take to place where humor and havoc is appropriate, preferably indoors. When that bee gets warmed up, he'll get to buzzing pretty good, then just give him a launch. Hours of fun.

Variations includer putting your little beastie on a leesh (and tying it to someone else), getting it to tow a banner (i.e. "Math Sucks" or "Bee Mine" at valentines day), and multiple insect engines. I plan on doing quite a bit of this once school gets started back up. Thanks for all the ideas. =P

Philibuster, who is probably going to get arrested for pulling half this crap.
