What do you call a wasp?

A wanna-bee!

  2. Satan. You call a wasp Satan. My husband is a bee-whisperer. He pets them like furry puppies and never gets stung. Cool photo.

  4. I once, as a very small boy playing hide and seek, blundered into a bumblebee nest and got stung all over. I have forgiven the bees for that.
