To bee or not to bee? That was the question for the staff at a small London bookstore yesterday after discovering a jar of bees left behind by a forgetful customer in a blue coat. In their search for the elusive "Bee Gent" they unwittingly set the hive mind on Twitter abuzz with bee-related puns.


"Please come back and reclaim your jar of bees," is not something most bookstore employees expect to have to write one day, but for the employees at the London Review Bookshop yesterday was that day.

After finding an abandoned jar of bees on a table in their poetry section the staff didn't have much to go on, only remembering the customer who left the jar as a "friendly gent" in a blue coat.

So they took to Twitter, and in hopes of tracking down the unknown beekeeper wrote perhaps the strangest tweet ever written.


Twitter was soon buzzing about the mysterious blue-coated stranger and the search for the Bee Gent was on.









It didn't taking long before Twitter was swarmed with all sorts of bee-related puns.






And eventually the literary setting inspired many to pen their own poetic odes to the jar of forsaken bees.





So far the Bee Gent hasn't returned to the claim his lost jar, but something tells it won't bee long before he does.

And not just that, but just how nasty people are? Why would you want to shake hands with them?

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
