The best discovery in the world!

Yes, that’s right. It has got to be honey. It tastes divine and is the perfect cure for what must be the greatest irritation in the world, a sore throat.

The niggling question, however, is “who thought of it?” Who decided to wade into a swarm of vicious bees and taste that viscous liquid that reflects the golden rays of the sun? Why even think of it? Surely, this pioneer would have been attacked by a sufficient number of the bees on the first attempt so as to give up the chase for this heavenly manna, the existence of which was as yet unknown?

Although I love the idea of the satyrs being the ingenious discoverers, there must be a better explanation than this.

  1. Yes, somehow I find it hard to believe that it was discovered by frolicking around bees naked. My money would be on prehistoric students, they're the only social group with enough time and lack of direction. It was probably a dare too!

  2. Great idea!

    Students fit the profile and a dare provides reasonable motive, but would they have been able to withstand the onslaught of bee stings and still go on?

  3. I think we would also have to rely on the probable discovery and involvement of alcohol at the same time to make this theory even more watertight.

  4. Well, that would definitely numb the senses, thus explaining the required high pain threshold.

    I've googled the discovery of alcohol, but there aren't any convincing paintings like the one for honey. Shame.
