A bee joke

For some reason, bee jokes are few and far between. Anyway, I did come across this in another blog, The Wild Oat:
There are three types of bees — queen bees, worker bees, and drones, but the drones are now called pollen consultants.
For anyone unfamiliar with honeybees: queens lay eggs, workers do all the work and the only function of drones is to mate with queens. Very few manage to do so — and the successful ones die as a result of the act.
