    How Indian Origin Kids land up as Bees more than often? Is it similar to those muscular built up Short distance sprinters or the lean aerobic long distance hawks. These sprinters almost arise from the same demography over and over again. I guess it runs in their genes! Ain't the Queen from India?

    It's more frustrating than funny at times. I feel like it almost works if Guillermo just pronounced it fully in Spanish phonetics instead of mixing it up. Some letters are totally skipped
