No Kidding, They Said That??

A few non-troll responses elicited by the above post:

*

Ry.. What is difference of normal bees and queen bee? 😅

Jh.. Queen Bees having a crown

Pa.. Normal bees are the peasants or the soldiers. The queen gives birth to all of them.
P.S. Oh and the crown as said before

Ry.. Okay, thanks guys. Even i can’t believe that queen bees using a crown 😅

*

Ah.. How did they count them?

Za..

Ah.. Za.. Is that a bee counter?

Za.. Nope. That’s a money counter machine

Ah.. How is that supposed to count bees?

*

Jo.. How did they count the bees?

Mu.. By beetometer bro

*

Et.. ITS 6833 NOT 20000 BELIEVE ME I COUNTED IT HAHAHAH

Ryo.. no one believes you.

*

Ha.. Would u show me an evidence that it’s certainly a 20k bees?

Ya.. Ha.. count it.

Ha.. I asked, you do.

*

Va.. WTF 20.000? This should be 20,001 bees. They don’t count the queen bee? They will be jailed because the queen is not considered

An.. it’s not 20,001 because the queen wasn’t chasing the car, she was trapped in it

*

Ro… What if they are 20,001? So it’s not a meme anymore? It’s a misinformation.

An.. Source??????

Ar… Queen is been kidnapped

Sa.. Al.. “Bee”ware of who you lock away in your car

Ja.. That’s loyalty and determination

Te.. If you know anything about bees, you would know that story isn’t true. Bees will make a new queen if the old one dies or disappears. That’s how splitting a hive works.

Getting Others To Do For You

The man counted the currency note bundle given by the cashier. He felt it was short by a note.

‘M’m, could you kindly load it in the counting machine and check it out for me?’

The cashier sounded impatient, her manner less than friendly‘Why, is it less…..look I’m busy, don’t have the time. Why don’t you count it yourself carefully once, twice, eh?

‘No, M’m, I think there’s a note or two in excess.’

The bundle was hastily snatched from his hands, counted on the machine multiple times and given back.

It works when a service-delivery-chain is drawn into the transaction with stakes enlarged beyond the transaction!

Thank Your Friends For…A Never-Before Tribute

Dont recall anyone ever speaking about his friends in these terms. Thinking about it, it does seem true – I mean the first part.

Words of an embittered shaayar (a poet):

**

” It’s friends keep you young, Sir.

While,

The Offsprings inquire about the Will.

And, the Relations, about your Status (achieved in life).”
