How Would You Feel at Knowing That You Have 'Butter' in Your Name?

Updated on April 14, 2019

I was born in the south. I live in the south and will die in the south. This is only a small part of the memories I share.

A Bumblebee or

a bumblebee or humble-bee) is any of over 240 species in the genus Bombus, part of Apidae, one of the bee families. They are found primarily in higher altitudes or latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, although they are also found in South America where a few lowland tropical species have been found. Female bumblebees are able to sting repeatedly, but as a rule, ignore humans and other animals.

I know that (speaking as a mortal) I would hate to go through, errr, fly through the air knowing that I was considered as the "Bully of the Bees." I'm not kidding. I fly from flower-to-flower getting the delicious nectar, but no other bees--honey bees, wasps, or even the dread hornets will come near me.
I am bigger than they are. And with a big size comes a big punch or in my case, a punch. Now I am not about to go and talk to various Bee Associations and Organizations and lecture them on "Sizes of Bee Hearts--and Does Evil Intent Live There?" because I simply am not that educated on that matter and besides, when you are born as big as me, an instant fear is born within me, uhhh, them, and maybe I am THAT one bumblebee whose heart is like the baby elephant in "Dumbo," and is able to love other bees and animals If you are serious about my dilemma, I suggest that you contact the Walt Disney

I Suppose That I

Should feel bitter about my size, occupation, and place in Mother Nature, but I don't. Maybe that I am a bit Emotionally-Challenged and should be spitting-out fiery phrases that would turn Honeybees into dust, but I don't. The problem lies with me. Not those insects or animals around me. But I do have one advantage (besides my size) that is my flying pattern which is high above all living things.

Now I did remark that I would turn the Honeybees into dust. That was some hasty Bumblebee talking. I always do that because I bumble sometimes more than I think. At least I’m honest.

But I can take given day and begin my job of harvesting the nectar from the sweet flowers, just minding my own Bumblebee business, and it is not long until there are more than six (or more) Honeybees doing their female dancing, singing that alluring buzzing both designed to get me off-course simply because the talk was, a Bumblebee is stupid. And awkward.

If Patience Does Have a Virtue

then I can understand why (this) following bytes of information will either thrill or sadden you. But I promise. This humble Bumblebee is a soft-spoken insect who swears that he/I will not harm you in any way.
I confess. Like every insect and every living thing, I can get really hungry, even to the point of starving if I do not get to eat during a regular time of day or night. You can surely understand this, right Mac?

And it is not like we can just land somewhere and grab some grub (no pun about grub-worms. Sorry) where there is a "McMonarch" "over 6 zillion eaten," and chow-down. Sometimes we have to eat on the fly (Sorry, for the pun, flies.) and then there are "those" special times, slow times when we can just take it easy and not get in to a heated-rush in order to just get a bite to eat.

So upon "this" beautiful spring morning, she is in my view. She is in great shape, for a butterfly, and she knows why to take advantage of her nice looks as she slowly lands down on a Day Lily and just lettng her wings rest while they go up and down so hypnotically--so much so that this drives me mad.

She does not see me. But I am ready to eat. I make my move. I do not plan on hurting her or anyone. Then I fly over her and land so she can hear me . . .and now I see her start to tremble. I have a few things to say to you before I have lunch, so please listen carefully: I am going to make a lunch right here and now, not because you are so arrogant or pretty, but you had some propaganda going around about MY name having "bumble" in it, so . . .now that you that this is the end, I have one thing to ask: "How does it feel to know that you have the noun,"Butter" in your name????"
