No buzz - but nice movie.

Just finished watching the Bee Movie. I accept that the main attraction was that we finally get to see more than a Saturday Night sketch, after Jerry Seinfeld hung up his boots. True, we don't do much seeing - but still he co-wrote it and voices Barry B. Benson, the main protagonist bee of the movie.

But the point of this post is to direct you to this article by noted entomologist, Natalie Angier "In Hollywood Hives, the Males Rule". It features some killer lines like

"bee flinging, like bee stinging, is a lethal affair."

"A successful male is a dead male."


"The drone is deemed a drain, and if he won’t die for love, he must die for its lack."

Do read.
