Not exactly a joke, but the other day I heard actor Michael Caine being interviewed on the radio about the publication of his new memoir. After discussing many of his great movies, he was asked if he had any funny stories about his few films that were flops. He was a bit reluctant to go there but he did jump happily into a story about a dismal movie called "The Swarm," about an invasion of "killer bees" in Texas.

He talked about he played a doctor and his costume included a white lab coat. He went into detail of how the fastidious bees being kept in the hives refrained from defecating inside the hive, only to cover the white lab coats with poop after being released onto the set. The bees crapped all over him, he said, and then the critics had their turn 6 months later.
