If an ant can lift one hundred times his weight, a bee can probably make a hundred times his weight in honey everyday. That's probably about a cup. So fifty bees should about cover my daily use. And then I just need another fifty bees so I can have some liquid gold to sell.
I set out to the park with a glass jar, and had an easy time catching the first bee. I just scooped him up and closed the lid. But the second proved more difficult. Every time I opened the jar to catch the second, the first flew out. I'm gonna need more jars.
After several weeks, I finally had my hundred bees, in a hundred jars. I want my bees to be free range so I set them up in my spare bedroom and took the lids off of the jars. The bees buzzed about, exploring their new territory. I gave them some empty honey bottles to fill and sat back and waited.
Nothing. Not one drop on honey. Lazy damn ungrateful bees. I spent all this time, rescuing them from the streets and giving them a nice roof over their tiny heads, and this is how they repay… Wait a minute. Maybe they're not like chickens, maybe they're like cows. They're not gonna just fill up the bottles themselves, I'm gonna have to milk them. Silly me.
