Day #469 Answers, Already

Questions are wonderful, aren’t they? You know why? It’s because asking a question seems to imply that there is probably an answer, and if the answer isn't known yet, it might be worth looking for.
When I ask the bee-joke questions, I don’t always have an answer in mind. I just enjoy seeing what you come up with. Sometimes I do have an answer available, but the ones you come up with are frequently funnier than mine.
Why is one of the most adventuresome words in the English language. Look at where it leads. To outer space, to the depths of the ocean, to the correcting of social ills, to the discovery of new technology.
And sometimes it drives the mothers of four-year-olds absolutely batty.
But still, it’s worth asking, don’t you think?
And if you’re wondering what you get when you cross a bee with a boomerang, the answer might be:
from Texas: “Crocodile DunBee,”
from Minnesota: “I dunno, but it’s gonna BEE home before you know it,”
from Alabama: “An insect that never has to fly backwards,”
From Colorado: “A BoomBeeRang,”
from New Hampshire: “An AborigiBee,” or
from somewhere unidentified: “A circular Buzz saw.”
Why do I ask these questions?
Why not?
BEEattitude for Day #469:
       Blessed are those who buzz for the fun of it, for their singing shall brighten the world.
