An aspiring beekeeper purchased a small hive and began producing his own product, which he stored in his basement. Things went well for a while, and he used his profits to buy more bees. A few months later, though, he had just harvested all of the honey and was having difficulty stacking it all in his basement. He had finally finished placing all the jars on the wall when he stepped back to survey his work. Suddenly, all the shelves collapsed! The glass jars fell and broke, and the bees outside in the yard sensed the delicious goods they had been robbed of. They flew through the cellar windows and stung the beekeeper all over.
Later, the beekeeper was talking about it with his friend. After he heard the whole story, his friend shook his head. "Well, you know what they say," he said.
