Rapture, in Bee major

My friend Jeff said today:
Have you heard that millions of honey bees are missing? Beekeepers and entomologists aren’t finding piles of dead bee bodies; they’ve simply gone missing. Makes me wonder if in these end times the bees might have been raptured while the religious fundamentalists were all left behind?

While that’s certainly a funny thought, I clicked through to the story he linked, and that’s not very funny at all. In a time when jobs are still scarce, raises nearly non-existant, oil prices are rising, variable rate mortgages are forcing people into foreclosure… et cetera… Now we can expect a lot of food to be less plentiful and more expensive, not the least of which is honey.
