The Bumblebee (a.k.a. the Humble Bee)

This week, the bumblebees have been all over the place; everything that doesn't moan with honeybees buzzes with bumbles.

I like the joke on the bumblebee;
His wings are too small to hold him.
He really can't fly, professors agree
But nobody's ever told him.

(The poem is cited in a fabulous book about honeybees called THE QUEEN MUST DIE: AND OTHER AFFAIRS OF BEES AND MEN by the wonderful Wm. Longgood. I highly recommend this book if you want an entertaining, informative read about the life and times of honeybees.)
