Comments on: A 4-yr-old reviews Bee Movie http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/03/a-4-yr-old-reviews-bee-movie/ "A man needn't go far to find a subject, if he's ready with his salt-box."--Uncle Pumblechook Wed, 14 May 2014 19:32:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.4 By: Cheryl Bee http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/03/a-4-yr-old-reviews-bee-movie/comment-page-1/#comment-4954 Sun, 09 Dec 2007 19:37:55 +0000 http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/03/a-4-yr-old-reviews-bee-movie/#comment-4954 Bees do not MAKE pollen!!! They collect it to store as a protein source to feed the bee larvae in the hive. They gather nectar in their honey stomach and regurgitate this into their comb and evaporate it to make honey. The public is so ignorant about honey bees and beekeeping it drives me crazy that this movie contains such BLATANT ERRORS!!! THERE ARE NO POLLEN JOCKEYS!!! THE WORKER BEES ARE ALL FEMALES!! THE MALE BEES (DRONES DO NOT HAVE STINGERS!!! ETC. ETC. ETC.

Our favorite “does he exist in this world” query was about “The Lord Above,” who’s referenced in the White Stripes’ song, “Little Ghost.” (“Does the Lord Above exist in this world?” is a complicated question, from many points of view!)

@Jason: Yes, indeed! Of course, why a *contemporary* lit person was at a *modernist* conference is beyond me. 🙂

Did it start with M and rhyme with “odern Studies Association)?

Alas, no Bee Movie for the kiddies on our side. Raking leaves. Put ’em to work, I say.

I can’t believe I did that. It should read: eating nectar and vomiting up HONEY.

Ok, I need to pay more attention to what I’m doing…It’s been that sort of weekend.

The pollen collects on the hairs outside the bees’ body, and they pack it into specially modified spots on their legs.

I need an old nerd, a young nerd, and a How-To-Program-BASIC Book, Stat!

Strange that they should have overlooked that opportunity . . . .
