The U.S. Secret Service had no answer for this sting operation.

President Barack Obama was reading Where the Wild Things Are to a group of youngsters during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday when a swarm of bees distracted the kids.

The president may be the leader of the free world, but even that title had little effect on the kids, who were, ahem, buzzing about the infiltration.

Obama tried to calm the kids down to no avail.

The children shrieked in disbelief, even as he reminded them the bees won't hurt them by shouting, "You guys are wild things! You aren’t supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!"

If Obama hadn't yet given any thought to his post-presidency plans, this experience may have convinced him to wipe kindergarten teacher and librarian off the list.
