bees dropping like flies



In recent times, the wee critters of nature have been hit hard, and fast. British songbirds are vanishing. Frog populations are plummeting. Fish are crazy. These are ill omens. But at least we still have bees licking flowers, reliable little perverts.

Then I spotted - Crisis: Honey Bee Population Disappearing via FTD

We really need those little devils. Apparently, bees are more sensitive to bio undiversity then humans are, as they are tiny. The leavings of our petro-industrial society go straight to their hips.

Sensing a dangerous tipping point, a team of crack scientists at Monsanto put together a replacement prototype - something a tad bigger, with more staying power. Minor modifications to the phenotype will suit it perfectly for Monsanto GMO crops.

Funny! Bit early for April Fool's though, isn't it?

If I do April Fools, I have to figure out a way to make it believable, and generate engry emails.

This would be absurdist, but it is mostly real, and I wouldn't put cloning a giant bee dog past Monsanto, so hey yah.
