Spelling bees?

So I tuned into this show on television which keeps billing itself as a contest for bees to spell words. I've been watching  most of the morning and have yet to see one damn bee! Instead, all I'm seeing are human kids asking dumb questions about certain words such as what is the origin or if there are any other ways of saying them. Then they try to spell them and stand there looking down at their shoes- shocked when they find out they are wrong. What the heck happened to the bees? That was the reason I tuned in in the first place! I thought it would make for some compelling TV. 

I hear those little bee bastards all the time as they're flying around the yard. I must say that they're really not that deep. All they do is fly around repeating the same phrases over and over and over again, "Must gather pollen." and, "Time to make the honey - the honey."  It's all very annoying. That is why I tuned in - I thought it would be interesting to finally hear them say something else for a change. Instead I get these kids freaking out on television! I guess I'm going to have to try and have my own spelling bee for bees then. I'm heading outside right now to see if I can stop one or two of those little twerps long enough to spell some words. Then I'll arrange for a true spelling bee. The prize will be the pleasure of stinging my idiot owner when I bring him out later in the afternoon to play ball. This is going to be great. I'll let you know how it turns out. Have a good day folks!


  1. Thanks Haley, I always wondered what those bees were saying. As for that TV show, it should have the subtitle "For People That Never Want to Date". Look away, or you might turn into a pillar of salt or worse, be forced to wear glasses and a pocket protector (though, lord knows where you'd put it).

  2. Haley, you are clearly smarter than most humans (including myself). The only thing you need to know is that they sting, but then, when they DO sting, THEY die.

    Of course, the real question is, "Do the bees know that?"

  3. DG - I hear you! Oh, I would clip the pocket protector on my collar.

    Chris - Thanks! Yes, unfortunately they die but they make a nice snack afterwards- just a little crunch to them.
