He got drunk and tried to ride a tiger?

Ok, seriously:

the animals involved: 1? 2? 3? 4? more than 4?
mammals? birds? fishes? reptiles? insects?

The drinks involved:
1? 2? 3? 4? more than 4?
different drinks? or multiples of the same drink?
alcoholic drinks? carbonated drinks? hot? cold?
Did he drink something not usually drunk?

He got drunk and tried to ride a tiger? lol, I almost wish that was the answer! but no

Ok, seriously:

the animals involved: 1? 2? 3? 4? more than 4? this one
mammals? birds? fishes? reptiles? insects? this one

The drinks involved:
1? 2? 3? 4? more than 4? probably this one
different drinks? quite possibly or multiples of the same drink? could have been this too
alcoholic drinks? yes carbonated drinks? possibly hot? unlikely cold? yes
Did he drink something not usually drunk? he may well have done but for the purposes of this puzzle I will say no

Relevant what type of alcohol? Was the alcohol's sole effect to get him drunk? To impair his judgement?

So he got drunk and stupid and did something? had something done to him? by a swarm? of insects?

The drink--beer?

The insects:
bees? wasps? hornets? some other stinging insect?
ants? flies? some other biting insect?
spiders? some other venomous insect?

Was the addition of the insects to the combination preceded by the words "Hey, y'all watch this!"?

The drink--beer? quite possibly

The insects:
bees? this one wasps? hornets? some other stinging insect?
ants? flies? some other biting insect?
spiders? some other venomous insect?

Was the addition of the insects to the combination preceded by the words "Hey, y'all watch this!"? I think he would have been too drunk to say anything

Disturbed a beehive?
If so, was it deliberate (tried to knock it down with a baseball bat?)or accidental? (walked or fell into it?)

Was he aware of the beehive? If so, was he attempting to move it? Avoid it? Get honey?
Or did he mistake it for something else?

By Jens Weber

Did he swallow a bee with his beer? no, this is pretty much solved now
(Finally, a bee puzzle ;) It's certainly been a long time coming :)


*********************SPOILER*********************
In September 2003, Escobedo, Mexico An unidentified 60-year-old man was still thirsty after drinking what most would consider “too much alcohol.” He stumbled toward a nearby bee’s nest, perhaps hoping to follow the beer with a bit of honey, which the bees would surely share.
Instead, over a thousand noble bees sacrificed their lives to protect their hive The man, quite reasonably, went into anaphylactic shock and died.

A hospital spokesman disputed the theory that the bees alone had killed him, attributing his demise to "the stupid things drunken people do," pointing out that the man was otherwise healthy and could have enjoyed a long life. "The combination was lethal." What a wally!
