less honey.
Yep, I am being unreasonable, but it's basics and gets on my bloody nerves.

And a wonderful PM it was, too. Bzzzz.

I've really enjoyed this thread. Thank you, folks!

Bees --> Honey --> Mead.

I think that says it all.

TheVermiciousKnid Thu 04-Oct-12 17:02:47

Are you suggesting that there are now fewer bees because they drink too much, Talc?

hellymelly Thu 04-Oct-12 17:02:05

talc. You are a genius.

Dawndonna Thu 04-Oct-12 16:59:52

Brilliant, Talc
grin

I have sent runawaysimba a spectacular prize via the medium of Personal Message, for guessing the answer correctly. Sort of.

olivia, if it is in pedants corner, the rest of us will not be heducated, like!

grin

Ha! To be really pedantic, and totally off topic.... there are MORE honey bees now as there are more new beekeepers following all the "bees go man goes 5 years later" Einstein misquotes.

waterlego Thu 04-Oct-12 08:49:26

Ahhhh.... I missed the clue too. <must pay more attention>

waterlego Thu 04-Oct-12 08:48:32

Oh....'Rock Lobster' is a song by the B52s?

waterlego Thu 04-Oct-12 08:46:18

Please explain how you got from 52 bees to boulder crustacean/rock lobster? I like cryptic but I am stumped.

JeezyOrangePips Thu 04-Oct-12 08:30:57

Many - fewer
Much - less

You would say too many bees, not too many honey.

Dawndonna Thu 04-Oct-12 08:19:16

Good grief runaway that's clever!

Talc I do hope you're a crossword compiler!

runawaysimba Thu 04-Oct-12 07:47:31

Oh! Oh! Boulder crustaceon. Rock lobster. There are 52 bees... Gladys!!

Dawndonna Thu 04-Oct-12 07:36:18

Olivia Happy for that to happen if you so wish. Was just being a mardy old bag when I posted!

Talc I love your bees, is there a sting in the tail?

OliviaPeaceAndLoveMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 04-Oct-12 00:19:12

LOVE THOSE BEES, talc grin
OP, do you think perhaps your thread might be better placed in pedants' corner?!

How many bees are there?

Nope.

Clue: Boulder Crustacean wink

A BB gun?

Prize Still Unclaimed

Apply round the back: knock on the window and ask for Gladys.

er, buzz?

A special online prize for the first person to guess who or what our buzzy chums above are representing thanks

I like less bee-age, it's got a certain ring to it. grin Or maybe less beer? Or fewer beers? confused

VeritableSmorgasbord Wed 03-Oct-12 18:19:35

Less bees
Less bees
Less bee-age
grin

Sorry, I've always wanted to do that on MN
hardly anyone says fewer and it is a LOVELY thing to see

Don't forget that for every one of those bees, there are six knees.

That's an awful lot of bees' knees.
