Bees drink your sorrow

Post by Insomniacagnostic »

I've just got into the drabblecast the past couple months and joined the forums to communicate the following:
There are bees out there who survive by drinking the tears of humans:

These bees rejoice in every tragedy that befalls humankind and gorge themselves upon our suffering. Insects just got that much more creepy. Again.

Welcome to the forums, Insomniacagnostic! (wow, did ya notice I said your name right without stumbling?!?)

That's a creepy story about those bees! And whaddup with congregations of 5-7 specimens per eye. Eew...
That does make me wonder: do they only do it when humans are asleep? And if so, is it possible to cry tears when you're asleep? How can I tell if I can?!? OMG, I am weirding myself out with questions again.

You know, those bees drinking our tears does make up a bit for us eating their honey.
I'll be there in 5 minutes. If not, read this again.

Man, my girlfriend just broke up with me, wah, this sucks. Man, there are 7 bee's congregating on my eye, wah, this sucks.

What does it say about the human condition that animals are forming behavior patterns reliant on misery?

Here's what would make it even cooler: Let's pretend, see, that the bee works symbiotically with some sort of parasitic creature, maybe a plasmodia. The plasmodia alters the human seratonin level, which causes the host to experience sadness. It cries, the bees drink. The plasmodia in the tears use the bees as a vector. When humans eat their honey, it starts the cycle all over again.

Mwahahaha.

The reason that the bee plasmodia connection has not been reported by the main stream media is due to Big Honey owning all the networks. Damn you Big Honey! Damn You!

I'd weep about the state of the world but I know that's exactly what they want.

All human misery is traceable to the nefarious forces of the Big Honey Industrial Complex. When you add to that the mysterious "I'm crying because I'm happy" market and the tear-jerker movie segment, it is clear that the purpose of human life is nothing but a dietary supplement. Possible apian chelation therapy.

I have honey available. $5 a bottle, both spring and fall varieties. Made with the nectar of the invasive Japanese knotweed. Dark and addictive - I mean, delicious! You'd weep with joy over the taste as it melts on your toast, stirs into your tea...yum.
