So I was stung by a bee a few weeks ago and that shit really hurt like hell. It even brought back a fear of bees that had taken me some 15 years to get over (I was stung in the ear when I was like 10). After the initial screaming, pain and figuring out how to deal with it (which was easy) I got to thinking about what the bee’s perspective was.
You know they die when they sting you, and most people I’m guessing have been stung by a bee at some point in their lives. That’s a lot of bees that have committed suicide through sting. Obviously they don’t have as much common sense as people would but at the same time you have to wonder, what makes them sting you?
Are they trying to protect their colony? Protect their honey? Yes, that’s it!!! It’s a Jihad for honey, and you know what, I don’t blame them. That shit tastes good. God knows I already pour myself spoonfuls of honey and eat it, with nothing to complement. I’d punch someone if they tried to take my honey, just ask a friend, and that’s just because I like the TASTE of it. Imagine, these bees actually MAKE the honey. For one, that’s just talented. For a two, any mother in the world would destroy the man that tried to take their CHILD, and that’s for a child, you can’t eat them, honey you CAN eat, and it tastes GREAT. NO WONDER BEES KILL YOU FOR IT? They’ve been onto something this entire time. Millions of years of stinging you and dying in the process. All to protect a their precious nectar… can’t say I blame them.
A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down? Well you know what, a spoonful of honey makes EVERYTHING turn around!!!!
Also, you have to think about it in terms of proportion, bees are a lot smaller than humans are. Imagine they were larger, they probably wouldn’t die. It’s all just a matter of size and the means at your disposal. All to protect their beloved creation, or is it secretion, eh who knows, but I certainly wouldn’t sympathize if they were dying to protect their fecal matter. I mean that’s just gross. It’d be like a human reaching into the toilet bowl after he/she took a shit and storing it in the freezer, then getting gun license, purchasing a gun, and threatening to shoot themselves if anyone came close to the frozen shit in the freezer.
Well I hope it’s their creation, though we create our own shit… Regardless, all this talk about a Jihad for honey has put me in the mood… I’m getting some God Damned honey. Be just like when I was a baby and my mom would pretend the spoon was an airplane flying into my mouth… Good times.
