Today’s Cautionary Note Posted on Friday, 22 August, 2008 by Frank Key “Never underestimate a bee” – David Sedaris
Although apparently it’s never been easier to get an A.
Never presume that it should ever have occured to me to underestimate a bee.
It is interesting to note that while one ought not to underestimate bees, one can underestimate other hymenoptera. Specifically, cockroach wasps, digger wasps, cuckoo wasps, fig wasps, chalcid wasps, gall wasps, and ensign wasps may be safely underestimated. But fairyflies, spider wasps, ants, ichneumon wasps, and sawflies, like bees (including carpenter bees, honeybees, bumblebees, sweat bees, and orchard bees) must never be underestimated. Science has yet to come to a determination for yellowjackets.
Never wear vermillion pantaloons with a yellow jacket…
(People will throw rocks at you…)
Science has yet to come to a determination for wallet-jockeys.
Word to the wise…
I’d put a monkey on Bobnit Tivol in the Lady Heather Mills Handycap Hurdles…
I underestimated a bee only last Thursday. But the bee underestimated me and it is now entombed in aspic.
