Honey is bee sick, isn't it? I watched a program the other day which said it is the stuff they eat and regurgitate, to make honey. I love honey.
Yes. I used to irritate my ex-wife by asking her to bring me or pass me the 'bee puke'.

Outside my comfort zone.
Was that because you called it bee puke, or because you asked her to get it for you instead of getting it yourself? :p

She didn't mind bringing or passing it; she only rolled her eyes when I referred to it as bee puke.

The correct way to ask a wife to pass the honey is to do a waggle dance on the kitchen table incorporating a base 6 mathematical system to indicate the sun position relative to the jar using just your arse.
Presenting the arse would certainly a be thoughtful gesture.
