Of Donald Duck, bees and life in the future...

Not had a nice nonsensical conversation up here for a while!! So here goes…

The conversation was between me and 5K… It started out with me saying how silly Donald Duck is for not wearing pants but wearing a towel when he steps out of the shower and rushes to cover himself when it is pulled off! Now 5K jus HAD to counter that for the sake of arguing… went on to explain how the water and soap created certain adverse conditions which mandated the requirement of a towel and it was only on closer examination that this could be realised… I fought this… What if Donald Duck suddenly fell into a lake! Come on, he is a duck after all… where then would he get a towel from…?? Now I won this round… it was then pointed out that the same would apply for Mickey Mouse but I said that that was true but Donald was so much more fun to ridicule than Mickey… Topic came up that this was true since Donald was silly enough to dress up as a bee and try to steal honey from a hive… now after this the conversation that followed led to some interesting conclusions…


Why do bees even make so much honey if it’s going to be stolen by man anyway? Because, in ancient times, when man did not exist, bees foresaw that such a silly creature as man would come into being who would steal all its honey... thus it was resigned to its fate and started producing extra honey so that man would get his share. But then we should get it packaged and purified ya… In the near or not-so-near future, bees will start producing packaged honey… with a label with a barcode signifying the number of the hive, the supervisor of the batch and of course, the name of the queen- Her Esteemed Majesty- Queen Ayesha… (dunno why that name, just seemed to fit…). But now what would we give in exchange for this? In the future, the economy would be different. Things would be exorbitantly expensive. To provide payment, the hives which have agreed to do this honey production for mankind would be placed in a garden which was rent-free, i.e., the bees would not have to pay the high rent normally expected from an occupant of the garden, while it was not so with anyone else. Now the person for whom the bees are producing honey should get all the honey right? But no… black marketing shall always exist… the bees will pretend to give us all their honey but secretly keep a hidden stash and gorge on it at our expense… and of course fed that fat queen of theirs, Queen Ayesha…

Well this led to the discussion of the life cycle of a bee and its hive politics which are as complicated, if not more, than an episode of the bold and the beautiful. Which led to the “birds and the bees”. Which led to much more nonsense… Aah glorious…

one more thing i did not understand is that, fine the bees are creatures with a lot of foresight and all but then why the hell do they put up such a fight when we want the honey??? when they are already redesigned to their fate/destiny...

but man doesn't steal all the honey na.. i mean not form all hives.. but the future is bright for the bees.. only if the wish to think a little and put up a better fight.. they should bite harder and prolly get venom from the snakes.. and then honey won't come easy to man.. :D

so th price of honey will increase.. like pearls.. so more people(brave people) will venture to the honey from the hive.. and this may lead to more consequences. .. it will make honey getting an interesting career option na?
