Look, I know I'm not the tidiest eater in the world. It's kind of difficult to help it, though, when you see what I have to go through to get my dinner. Imagine, Human, that to reach a bowl of rice, you first have to forge your way through a head-high pile of styrofoam pellets. That's why I look like this all the time. It's not like I can use chopsticks. I mean hello, no thumbs. Besides, I evolved to do this job. Can you reach half your body length with your tongue alone? Yeah, I bet you'd be willing to walk around covered in pollen if you could. Dirty Human. Now step aside please, I have children to feed and that lens is starting to tick me off. In case you forgot, I have a sting.

Eee, so fuzzy. If they didn't sting I'd pet them :)

Did you ever sing that song, "I'm bringin' home a baby bumblebee/Won't my mommy be so proud of me?" (I still do, in my head, when I see them. Embarrassing but true.)

True. They just don't seem to care unless you happen to be in the direction they're planning to fly next, which, fortunately, isn't usually the one you're standing in.
