Bees and bombs

personal, Scripture Add comments

Scientists have trained bees to sniff out explosives.

In the future, I’m sure, there will be specially trained police officers in their beehive cars.

“We have a situation here, possible explosives. We need the B Unit!”

Not noted in the article was one of the intrepid bees who underwent the training.

His name is Eric.


A one… two…. A one.. two.. three..four…

[piano intro]

Half a bee, philosophically, must, ipso facto, half not be.

But half the bee
has got to be,
vis a vis
its entity – do you see?

But can a bee
be said to be
or not to be
an entire bee
when half the bee
is not a bee
due to some ancient injury?


La dee dee, 1 2 3,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this retched demi-bee,
half asleep upon my knee,
some freak from a menagerie?
No! It’s Eric the half a bee.

Fiddle dee dum,
Fiddle dee dee,
Eric the half bee.

Ho ho ho,
Tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

    I haven’t done anything, so I don’t know why this would be — though in recent weeks I’ve been having all sorts of peculiar problems with my webhost, including email and database issues. I’ll bet that has something to do with it.

    Maybe I should upgrade my WP install too.
