I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but there’s a TV show called Grimm that is set in Oregon.
The show’s alright. Little hard to follow at times with all the German critters and bogiemen running around. If you haven’t seen it, here’s the deal: All those fairy tales? They’re real. It goes on from there.
Anyway, I wondered why the show was set in Oregon. I kinda figured that the whole Twilight thing with all the gay vampires in the northwest U.S. was the inspiration. But now, I’m not so sure.
Turns out that in Wilsonville, Oregon, they’re gonna put up a memorial to 50,000 dead bumblebees.
No, I’m not making that up.
So, what are you doing this coming Sunday at 2:00 PM Left Coast Time? If you’re near Wilsonville, Oregon — that’s 25 miles south of the police station in Portland where Nick and his half-Hexenbiest captain work — you can watch a bunch of grown folks put up a monument to dead bumblebees.
I don’t know if you’ll see any Hexenbiest or Blutbaden or Fuchsbau there. But, I’m sure you’ll see a Blödmann or two.
UPDATE: Harvey has an update.
