Whenever I'm making anything with honey in it, I always say thankyou to the bees.

I don't do anything similar with any other food.

Just honey, and bees.

I have *no* idea why.

well, it would be a bit odd with meat or fish, no?

...but I don't thank cows when I eat cheese or drink milk. Oh god - maybe I'm going to start doing that now.

Maybe it's cos bees are far more committed to producing honey than other animals are to producing other food
Sure, a cow has to die to give us beefburgers, but it only has to do that once. Being herded into a brain-gouging machine is really no effort at all. Egg laying looks pretty painful, but that's just part of the course of being a chicken.

But if you're a bee, you and your entire family have spent your entire lives producing that honey, in the hope of securing a better future for the generations to come. From the moment you were born to the moment you die, making that honey is your entire life's work.

Also: how come people can't make honey out of pollen, but bees can? People are smarter than bees, right? Surely there's not some magic bee alchemy beyond the ken of science?

That's probably it.
I am appreciating the amount of sheer work that's put in to creating this delicious sugary treat.

Bees are awesome.

It's a pretty old superstition :)
probably the same reason people used to tell the bees the news first that someone in the household had died.
