In Canada, the leader of Ontario inadvertently swallows a bee

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. President Barack Obama once snatched a fly during a television interview. The leader of Ontario, Canada, inadvertently did him one better. Doug Ford, the provincial premier, was talking with reporters.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

DOUG FORD: This sector - (coughing).

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: What was that?

FORD: I just swallowed a bee.

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: Oh, my.

FORD: Oh, I'm OK. He's buzzing in there.

INSKEEP: Having swallowed a bee, he promised to go straight to the hospital and predicted it would be funny - later. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
