Bees against honey



January 22, 2010 – Comments (6)

A brave little Drone rattled the nectar market Thursday after asking the swarm for limits on how large big vegetation can be and to end some of the risky practices large flowers have used in recent quarters to boost their production of Nectar. It's not clear what will come of the proposed changes but insects are selling anyway.

In announcing his proposals Thursday at the hive, the Drone said if the nectar industry wanted a fight over new restrictions, it was a fight he was ready to have. 

“Now if I tell them, ‘Well, it turns out that we will actually have gotten our nectar paid back and that we’re going to make sure that a fee’s imposed on the big vegetation so that this thing will cost the bees not a dime,’ that’s helpful,” the Drone said. “But it doesn’t eliminate the sense that their voices aren’t heard and that institutions are betraying them.” To change that, he added, "We’re about to get into a big fight with the flowers.”

“Never again,” he said, “will the American bee be held hostage by a flower that is too big to fail.”

As always, all characters are imaginary and any resemblances to real persons are purely accidental.

Seems like the Drone has little regard for the Worker Bee and the markets they deal in.

Lack of pollinators for the flowers will mean fewer flowers next year and less potential for honey production.  The vegetations have grown large because of the overactive bees.  When the vegetations start to rot in the fields because of lact of stimulation, it is likely that roaches and other bugs will begin to feed off of the decay and create even bigger problems for the bees.

Did I miss the part about why the drone was creating new limits?

Insightful parable. I'm glad that real hives don't have such problems. We could learn from the bees.
