I was going to use an Eric the Half-A-Bee quote, but I got distracted by one of the search suggestions being "eric the half a bee meaning" and one of the results being the Eric the Half-A-Bee song translated into Tongan.
Translated or sung-in?!
Still interested. That is my favorite Monty Python song.
If you're musically inclined, perhaps you could sing and record it in Tongan for us?

This doesn't really have much to do with this video, but I found out about Vulture Bees recently and I'm just v excited about them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulture_bee
They are bees that make honey out of rotting flesh.
Wha...................!? That's so beautiful I'm surprised the Egyptians didn't worship it.
Trigona hypogea also prey on wasp babbies!
Yesterday I didn't know about flesh to honey conversion in nature. Today I am in a new world. Proof knowledge isn't had until it's shared.
Thank you, poorwill!
That's really cool. They are my new favorite bee. We should have a vulture bee week.
Meme - according to Wikipedia, vulture bees are an American species, and people didn't observe their behavior until the 1980s. The timing and the location thus precluded Ancient Egyptians from worshipping them. However, I'm sure that when the Illuminated Ones unveil the hidden priesthoods of Isis and Ra, the Neo-Phaoronic Cult of the 13 Dynasties will find a place within the global pantheon for vulture bees.
Homie, but what about the myths of bees being born of dead cattle?
Of course, none of those cultures had an idea that bees and wasps were different, so this could be describing wasps.
What about them? Those myths did not involve vulture bees (and may not have even involved any "bees" at all!). If you're suggesting that perhaps some other, Mediterranean type of bee was turning corpses into honey, well, that's an interesting theory, and I myself have no way of judging its merits. Perhaps it's something you could work on?
One thing I would point out, however, is that there does not appear to be any indication that the legends claimed bees were *making honey* from corpses, just that they were hatching from, or perhaps nesting within, corpses.
