Bee Puns and Metaphors

Beeminder has a growing collection of bee-related puns and metaphors used across the site. I thought it would be great to help build a collection of all the bee related puns and metaphors we can think of so that they have a roster to pick from when they make changes or add new features. If you think of a new bee-related pun or metaphor please add it in a new comment below. These could be bylines, names for possible features or just a thing you do, no restrictions.

Getting stung - when you derail and lose money.

Don’t forget @bee Herself, aka the Queen Bee!

And I loved the one from @are last week: apiology

An internal one that probably doesn’t count: we call our business bank account “moneybee”.

Oh, @mary made a Slack channel for automatically posting derailments and things called “accountabeelity”.

Sooo many of these…

There’s a treasure trove[1] in the taglines thread.
