The Shaved Bumblebee. His is the little story of the bumblebee Bernard who wanted to impress his friends with an experiment. It was one of these boring days and they were as usual looking for some nonsense to get involved in and succeeded in switching on an electric shaver.

Welcome to the digital studio of Till Nowak. His Salad is out of this world. Dishes. His Edges is cool and Delivery too. [via madamjujujive's via].

I'm cooking ratatouille this afternoon, so I found "Salad" especially captivating.
Cool post, nickyskye!

Wow, my first bumblebee penis... How do bees actually get it on? With peens?

rikschell,

Yeah, and his Alien is TOTALLY screwed up...all made of veggies. Real Aliens don't look at all like that.

The premise of 'The Bee Movie' is preposterous! Bees can't talk! And especially not to humans!

Oh...and BTW...rats can't cook!

If a bee, is half a bee
it must ipso facto half not be.

Hey wait...ANYONE can cook!

(Though....was I the only one who noticed that, in the movie, Gousteau's book in French actually translates into "Everyone Can Cook"?)

bee anatomy

This fun image is anatomically correct in two ways however, drone bees, the ones that fertilize the queen bee, are fat and hairy and nearly twice the size of the workers.

And incorrect in a number of ways, apart from the plucked chicken skin on the butt, the elephant schnozzes, the fingers and toes but also in that drone bees are unusually well endowed.

So wrong, so cool.

Images like this make me very glad I don't do hallucinogenic drugs. (I'm high on life, dontcha know...)

I can put up with the plucked chicken bottom, but i find the presence of nipples unfathomable.

Fun find, nicky!

But ... apparently, all the wise bees wax rather than shave - helps to prevent that chicken skin look.

Salad is interesting, but I prefer the work of Arcimboldo (upon whose work this was based) for my vegetable portraits.

How do bees actually get it on?

A drone is built only for sex: he cannot make honey and he cannot sting; he can only fly fast enough to catch a queen and then employ his large, bulbous, hooked cock to deliver a dollop of sperm to the sperm already sloshing around inside her from previous drones.

Drone and queen fuck in midair until, as he ejaculates, his dick snaps off. He gives her a sort of a detached look and then he dies. She flies off with his dick still twitching.

The next drone that comes along removes the previous drone's dick from the queen--"I know what you've been up to!"--and then doesn't have the sense to avoid making the same mistake.

See here.
