Borussia Dortmund’s bee mascot pretends to urinate on Bayern Munich’s bus
Borussia Dortmund’s bumblebee mascot is single-wingedly smashing the stereotype that Germans don’t have a sense of humour. Cheeky mascot Emma was pictured pretending to urinate on the Bayern Munich team bus following their 1-0 win over the Bavarian giants on Wednesday evening.
Losing the match and have a weak-bladdered bee set loose on your bus would have been difficult enough for Bayern to take. But the real punchline came in the statement Dortmund put out after German tabloid Bild got its hands on the photo.
The club explained: “Nonsense. Emma is a seven years young smart bee that knows its clothing is unable to open in the front to allow it to do its little business. We admit that the attempt to help the Bayern team by checking the tyre pressure on our guests’ wonderful team bus was a bit unsuccessful.”
There you go: the bee was just making sure Bayern were road-safe.
