    The honey bees visit to the White House is a glimmer of hope for a big rise in honey stocks to boost the sagging American economy.

    Those Republicans will try any kind of tactic to get back in to the White House! You have to be in awe at how they got those tiny cameras mounted on those tiny bees – imagine, mounting so many and hoping against hope that at least one makes it in to the Oval Office!

    Beekeepers hymn:

    When i find myself in times of trouble
    Mother Mary comes to me
    Speaking words of wisdom, let it bee.
    And in my hour of darkness
    She is standing right in front of me
    Speaking words of wisdom, let it bee.
    Let it bee, let it bee.
    Whisper words of wisdom, let it bee.
