What is your knowledge of Bees?

Myself, I never had the chance to be around any, but I did get some satisfaction from their honey.

Have you ever been stung by one?

What type was is? In which country? Did you get sick? Allergies?

How friendly are they? Can we just get their honey without asking?

And what is that with these flavours? How do they do that? Does it come naturally?

You sound like a pretty nice guy, but a terrible brother.

Keep it up!

Can bees sit down without stabbing the sitting surface with their stinger butt?

Bears are cool, cause they'll just take the honey.. they are so tough they don't even care if they get stung!

Also, why are they called bees? I think that's a dumb name...

Also, is there a king bee?

That's all I can think of when it comes to bees right now. They are mysterious creatures.

P.S. do you guys remember the Killer Bees WWF wrestling group?

If bees suddenly disappeared, the economy would come to a crashing thud.

"Why's that?"...you ask.

Cross-pollenation, bitches, cross-pollenation.

Sorry. You are not allowed to plagiate (it was a good joke though).

You could have quoted it and added:

Quoted for emphasis to give it more beedy.

Yeah, they could have been horseflies.

Kids generally aren't very smart. They wouldn't know the difference if the bee/horsefly was right in front of their nose, or even on their nose!

I hate to say this, but it sounds like these were actually horseflies. Bees don't hang around flowers, they eat earthworms.

Bees share common names, since in bee culture, individuality is ignored in favor of hive success. Drones are known as Ted, while workers are called Skip.

In Africanized bees, drones are named Darrell and workers are called Shanice.

Few people know that one can spontaneously develop a severe allergic reaction to bee stings anytime in life. That's why one should always be ready to die a gruesome, horrible death.

My goodness! I never knew!

In French they are called respectively Pierre and Nathalie!

Is it the same system for A(u)nts?

Actually I was testing you, the only female bees are queens. The Africanized bees are called Darrell and Tyrone.

You'll have to ask Cubeoid about ants, I am a mere neophyte in ant culture.

The ant thread seemed to disappear into thin air. Maybe if this disappears into thin air it will go to the same place the ant thread went to?
