Just wanted to do a short post on hummingbird feeders today.
Somebody mentioned hummingbird feeders to me the other day and I started thinking about them a little. I wondered why I hadn’t seen one in years. I tried to remember back to our hummingbird feeders that my grandparents put out when I was a kid. At first, the memories were pleasant. I remember seeing iridescent little birds flutter about and feed off of sugar water.
The more I thought about it though, I began to remember that there were other creatures that loved sugar water more than hummingbirds; bees, primarily. They love that shit… so much so that hummingbird feeders were only that in name. These were plastic, sugar dispensers for bees. For every beautiful hummingbird, there were hundreds of bees. It suddenly dawned on me that most of my experience with these feeders actually played out like this.
Yeah, those things sucked pretty hard.
P.S. Let me know what other horrible inventions you’d like to see me draw.
P.P.S. For you Tommy Boy fans… “BEES! BEES ! BEES IN THE CAR! BEES EVERYWHERE! GOD, THEY’RE HUGE! THEY’RE RIPPING MY FLESH OFF!”
