Ever have one of those days where you're physically incapable of getting any work done? (banal?)

Varroa mites mates, that’s what yer man the bee inspector’s all about. It’s a serious business.

Also nosema and foulbrood.

Probably the easiest identification in the bee inspector’s purview is colony collapse disorder, which is diagnosed by opening the hive and noting that there are no longer any bees in it.

Found them!

Amazingly, they appear to have gone bust.

I imagined some kinf of transparent plastic section filled with bees. Not a solitary bee clamped down in a clockwork orange type scenario. Does this office junior have to put the bees into their bee jail with tweezers?

Extraordinary.

They’ve just jammed a bee in there.

sort of like a bee-dalek.

Apparently it’s ,“a self-contained hand-held device with 36 bees.”

So they’ve jammed 36 bees in there. Which is just delightfully batshit.

FUCK

It’s ok, the job didn’t specify you had to come up with all the bee-related puns for the business too.

No, just to bumble around making the tea.

Means it’ll still function even when 35 of the bees are dead though, which is real peace of mind when you’re relying on the bees to prevent terrorist incidents on airlines.

And wax lyrical about the beetronics in the marketing copy.

They’ve probably got a tupperware with a few very angry spare ones buzzing around, for quick replacement.

Ideal on a plane.

Given the fate of the company, looks like the key thing would’ve been generating more buzz for subsequent rounds of funding.

Yes, the more buzz, the faster the sweet, sweet funding nectar comes in.

I HAVE HAD IT WITH THESE MOTHERFUCKING BEES ON THIS MOTHERFUCKING PLANE!

Bees.
