I know why the caged bee stings.
But really, those things spray venom in your eyes and are smart enough to target the seams of your anti-bee suit. They are also carnivores, predators, social animals, and they mark their territory with chemical flags.
We should put them on the "direct competition with all the bad qualities of humans" list immediately.
It only stings when it comes into contact with a hostile animal. If it's caged, and therefore isolated from the world at large, at what point would it be given the opportunity to sting?
You're a throwaway statement pedant seeking missile, aren't you?
Think of this creature as an EvilHormet, it stings because it can.
Only if you're speaking metaphorically; because I am a human being, not a missile.
Also, I think your metaphor would be better rendered as "pedantic throwaway statement seeking missile", because I am not seeking out pedantry, but rather, seeking out throwaway statements with which to be pedantic towards.
Or perhaps you meant to say "throwaway statement seeking pedant missile"? That works, too.
homie i think you mean "seeking out throwaway statements about which i may be pedantic" but who's counting
Yes, that would also work Mr Bus, but I think it is important to keep memedumpster's metaphor intact. There is no metaphor in the way you put it.
the metaphor, homer, belabored as you and i have made it, still stands in my edit.
it lies in the word "seeking", because you are the missile which seeks out throwaway statements, about which statements you are prepared to be pedantic.
Also, obvious but necessary

Aw, she wants you to rub her belly.

This and the giant centipede are probably the only things I have a gut reaction to that involves a blowtorch and a fucking axe.
