Have you ever been stung by a yellow jacket on

your tongue? Well I just experienced that wretched event this morning... my woman left a can of pineapple juice on the hand rail and I saw it this morning and figured it would a great morning "pick me up jolt!" Well I was right! Apparently two of the yellow and black demons crawled into the can and of course got stuck in the juice... I come along and take a swig and HOLY MOTHER OF ***** THAT HURTS!! I spit the juice out along with two of the demons, one appeared to be dead already... and the other was moving vigorously until I stepped on it.

Woman heard me howling as I ran into the kitchen to rinse my mouth out (yeah... really didn't know what else to do) while our 9 month old is clapping her hands and howling with me!!!

I saw someone get stung in the throat by a bee at a range years ago. They set their Coke down, came back to it a while later, took a gulp, and next thing we knew he was swatting at his neck, coughing and gagging. Not pleasant to witness.

Keep those outdoor beverages capped or covered when not in use!

yep, i was stung on the lip once by a bee and once in the roof of my mouth by a red wasp. both from drink cans while outdoors. the shot to the roof of the mouth was one of the most agonizing experiences of my life, there was simply nothing i could do to alleviate the pain, and while i'm not allergic to wasp stings i am hypersensitive to them. where most people feel the throbbing pain for a few hours i feel it for up to 24 and sometimes longer depending on the location.


now when i drink soda outside i'll put a small piece of tape, or chewing gum or something on the tab and swing it around over the hole if i have to set it down for any length of time.

Good idea on the tape!

2 in my mouth

They lit me up!!

I was with a bunch of friends at a local dirt race track. Set my MtDew down and didnt look when I came back to it.

I very nearly had to go to the hospital. Although I am not generally allergic, my tongue and bottom lip swole up a good bit. I looked like a freak clown!!

Everyone, including me got a big laugh out of it, but it definitely taught me a lesson.

Ouch! I have never been stung in the mouth. Worst yellow-jacket sting I have suffered was when one stung me right on the base of my skull.

Felt like it went right into my spinal cord... I got really dizzy and nauseous for about a half-hour...

A healthy splash of bourbon should be added to all canned drinks when outside in the summer months to ward off insects. To keep you warm in the winter months.

Dayum. I got nailed on the back of the knee while leaving a VM...my friend called later, laughing his ass off at the two-minute, expletive-filled message I'd left for him. Felt like I had a cigarette being put out on my leg for about six hours. Couldn't imagine the mouth...but covering your drink is a act of life here in the summer. We have bald hornets (black and white) and they are as aggressive as Honey Badger.

This is one of the major reasons why I like using bottles with screw on lids, instead of cans. Another reason why I don't like setting a drink down and not being able to constantly keep an eye on it. But that last one also stems from me not trusting people and expecting someone to put something in my drink if I step away from it.

Never been stung in the roof of my mouth. Worst I've had it was about a dozen stings on my legs once day from grabbing a pile of brush that had quite a few wasps in it. I bet the tongue really sucks though.

I've been stung by yellow jackets many times, and in many different places, but never on the tongue. OUCH!

In West Texas, BTW, they are usually called dirt daubers.

Yeah... I picked the pineapple juice can up and took a swig... I like to swirl the juice around my tongue (weird I suppose) anyhow As soon as the first yellow jacket hit my tongue (I felt the "chunky" in the juice and knew something wasn't right) I started to spit but I think that's when the second one... or first I don't know, the one that WAS alive, stung me on the tip of my tongue.

The pain was something I have never experienced before... and I live with and have experienced some pretty gnarly pain in my short years, broken ribs, fingers, hands, arms, nose, deep lacerations... Pretty long list but this, WOW!

I was stung on the lip when I was 5 or 6. It swelled up like a mother. I was playing around the chain link dog kennels my uncle had for his Brittanies. The yellow jackets were inside the poles of the kennel. This was in the middle of the summer and hot as hell. My uncle put on a snowsuit and went out and went to work. He took the dogs and dog houses out of the enclosure and poured gas on the poles and set the whole deal on fire. I'm not sure if he did it for me or his dogs, but it worked.

My dad swallowed one that flew in his drink while we were camping once. Got him in the throat, he had a pretty rough weekend.
