As an entomologist I can confirm that Sean is exactly right about the distinction between bees and wasps with regard to their stinging behavior. Bees have barbed stingers, so that when the stinger penetrates your skin it can't be withdrawn back out without ripping out the entire sting and venom apparatus. If the bee is knocked off your skin, that whole mechanism remains in place, continuing to pump venom into your skin, but also effectively eviscerating the bee. Most wasps have smooth stingers which can easily be withdrawn from the skin with no harm to the wasp, but their sense of remorse is much more heightened than a bee's. Ultimately, the effect is very similar since the wasp will usually use its own stinger to rip out its own guts.

 

Here are some photos which illustrate what I'm talking about:

I'm no entomologist, but I am a self-proclaimed bug guy, and I concur with everything Mr. Foonerism says.

When do the bits end and when do the posts get real?

 

And now if this were an episode of Comedy Bang Bang, Scott would probably make some kind of reference to the introduction of "The Real World", and we'd all remember that Puck guy or something and chuckle to ourselves

I appreciate the support Jake, you are well known as one of the top bug guys on the whole forum.

All kidding a sad lid, can someone pants me the water, as well as whatever product Brandon Content recommends for washing the hundreds of earwolf t-shirts used to clean up after all the sex initiated by these photos?

I girded thee

Hey Andrew, thanks for coming over. So the kids are telling me you keep reminding them that you "girded" them? Look you're by far the most flexible and reliable babysitter we've ever had, but we're going to have to let you go. You understand, we can't have the kids living in fear of their next, as you phrase it; "Eminent Girding". Sorry, please do not call us for a recommendation.
