Bees are sluts.

They ain't the first species to end up on their backs after absorbing too much alcohol, that's fer sure. From

[Julie Mustard] and her colleagues gave various levels of ethanol -- the intoxicating agent in liquor -- to bees and studied the effect this had on their behavior.

The more ethanol they consumed, the more difficulty the bees had flying, walking, standing still and grooming. Some of the bees became so drunk they ended up flat on their backs.

Man, sounds like bees really know how to party. You can read the whole article if you want, but it doesn't give away any of the lurid details.

Well, if it happens in nature, then it's natural. So it's OK to be slutty!

So, if I put out beer houses instead of birdhouses, it might help with my insect problems?

But it might not help with any hobo problems. In fact, if you don't have any now I see some in the near future.

Yeah, the last zebra I met was a total skank.

Oh Colleen, alcohol seldom makes your problems go away, in fact, more often that not it makes them worse! Have you NEVER seen an after school special?

By Blogger Kristina, at 9:02 AM  

Yeah. Didn't you see the afterschool special where we're led to believe that Val Kilmer ran over Mare Winningham when he was driving drunk but than we find out at the end that it was really Michelle Pfeiffer that was driving & subsequently killed Mare? It was a real tear jerker.

It's the same with most animals and most drugs. I read a study once about rats who were provided with a tube through which they could self-administer cocaine. They all used steadily more and more until eventually, within a day or two, they were all dead. Still, from their point of view it was probably a pretty good way to go...
