I am buzzed

Tell me they're called Had-bee-ilds.

Ummm, okay. Weird. They ran out of streets I guess.

These bees must be highly intelligent, polite, and professional.

I hear the new species of termite that’s been discovered will be named after.......

Cmdr_Hadfield got it before Buzz? That's gotta sting 🐝

New species of bee? I thought all the bees were dying off?!
