Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/05/19

Image result for bee vs wasp sting

If the bee bites you once, it’s the bee’s fault.  If the bee bites you twice, it’s your fault.”   —   Source Obscure

(This is a truism that is filled with errors.  It is physically impossible for a bee to ‘bite’ more than once, because their stinger and venom sac, and part of their lower abdomen, get ripped out when the bee flies off . . . to die within minutes.  A wasp however can sting – not bite – you many times, as their stingers stay intact.  Bees sting only defensively, while wasps can be more aggressive.  But, if you don’t give a wasp a reason to sting you – like swatting at it – they’ll usually just leave you alone.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If a bee “stings” you once, the bee will die.

    Points well taken, UR. Plus, we just had this very same quote about one month ago! Does this count as getting “bitten” by a bee twice?

    Very good, unc. I see that, now.

    Apparently, I didn’t actually read the whole comment.

    This quote has made two other appearances before today. Most recently, October 2, 2019

    I feel like we saw this quote recently. Was this a reprint?

    It looks that way, Anonymous! A lot of you guys memories are better than mine. It didn’t strike me as a re-run, and it was just a month ago! At least my commentary was *fresh*! — YUR
