Georgie beegins something new...

Life-in-the-Stump-MASTHEAD--promo1


Okay, I figured out what to do about my Editor’s demands that I find a way to get everybody in the Swarm to start beelieving the News again. I was glad it didn’t take me long (I only need about a day or two to figure out anything. I'm very efficient, as we all know, mostly), aren’t you? I thought you would bee.

As we all know, the “
Bee Times Gazette Journal Record…and Online News” has been in buzziness, serving the Swarm’s Informational Needs, mostly, for as long as anybody can remember, which nobody can, especially me.

My Editor’s still highly upset over the fact that nobody trusts the
BTGJR…AON right now, but quite frankly, if you’re a regular subscriber to that thing, you understand that it’s not a fun thing to read, it’s in super small print, and it usually gets only about half the story right, probably.

It’s not going out of buzziness, though. They’re just not gonna publish anymore issues until, as my Editor put it, “our Beeloved Readers come to their senses”. Whatever.

In the meantime, I’m sure everybody’s going to respond favourably to something I’ve managed to throw together for everybody in the Swarm - and for my Beeps (if you’re interested). It’s a Weekly News & Information Thingy, which my Editor says he’ll start publishing tomorrow.

We’re calling this Thing, “
Life in the Stump”, and it will contain the dependably and mostly accurate News and Information of the Day. It’s gonna come out every Thursday. I’m absolutely certain that there’s a excellently marginal good chance that everybody’s gonna love it. And with the low, low Seasonal Subscription Rate of just 0.187 pounds of honey per issue, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna make a lot of honey off this Thing.

“We’d better,” my Editor told me when I gave him the First Issue. “Or Else.”

Whatever.

So…bee sure to check back tomorrow, either here or on my Website, for that.

Okay then. Let’s bee careful out there.

Georgie meets with his Editor...

Get this:

Over the Weekend, my Editor gave me a buzz. He politely asked if I’d consider seeing him in his Office Monday morning (that’s today, in case you didn’t know that. )

“Please stop by anytime, whenever it’s totally convenient for you, and fits comfortably into your buzzy schedule, of course,” he said.

For a minute there, I thought that maybee my Editor had started mellowing out over the Cold Season. Then he said, “On second thought, Bee, bee in my Office first thing Monday morning. Or Else.”

Geeeeeze.

So I did that. When I got there, I couldn’t help but notice that he looked highly angry.

“Nobody trusts The Bee Times Gazette Journal Record…and Online News anymore,” he said.

“Well…yeah… that's beecause,” I started to say.

“Ever since we published that Special Insert that listed all the problems everybody has run into in this Stump, and listing Queen Jemima’s Questionable Promises to make Improvements on Day One,” he told me, “our Readership has taken a nose dive.”

“You mean,” I asked, “the Improvements that aren’t gonna happen? I’m sorry. I didn’t see that.”

“Bee that as it may, Bee, we have a Big Problem on our wings. Our Publication has been the Number One Sources for Sports and Information for the past very long time, and now, nobody beelieves anything we print.” He slammed his wing on his desk and buzzed superly loud, “THIS WILL NOT DO! I’m assigning YOU the job of FIXING this Problem, Bee - OR ELSE!”

I don’t know why my Editor is suddenly blaming ME for this Problem. Geeeeeeze. I just woke up. And what do I know about anything? Nothing, that’s what.

But okay fine, I’ll do it. After all, over the past few years, dozens of bees and Beeps (my Human Friends - you know who you are) have come to rely on me for a Dependable Viewpoint. How many relationships did I save and make happier with my “Dear Georgie” Column? I think the number is too high to count, probably.

And how many came to deeply depend on my highly accurate and insightful Reviews I provided in that “At The Movies with Georgie Bee” Thing? I don’t think it’s possible to calculate.

Anyway, I guess I hafta figure out some way to get the Swarm to beelieve the News of the Day - and I guess I’m the only bee who can bring Trustworthiness back to the News.

So I’m gonna go do that.

I’ll get back to you when I figure all of this out.

Let’s all bee careful out there.

Legal problems over The Stump beegin to unfold...

I should probably mention that the Snark Brothers Tower at 1 Stump Plaza - or what everybody just calls “The Stump” - is a horrible place. You should see it.

First, as I said, it’s really nothing more than an old, mostly hollow Golden Oak Tree Stump with the letters “SB” carved in it. It doesn’t have a roof, so it’s drafty and it leaks whenever it rains or snows. And it has NO security at all. Just anybody could fly or crawl into that place and there’s nothing to stop them.

I’m seriously happy I don’t live there.

Well, it turns out that Queen Jemima, Her Royal Highness, Majestic Negotiator of Not-So-Shrewd Buzziness Deals, has beecome highly worried about Hive Security. As a result, She issued a Royal Decree that a Roof and New Doors must bee installed in The Stump - and that the Snark Brothers would bee paying for it.

“Trust me,” she said in a Royal Public Service Announcement a few days ago, “the Improvements WILL bee made, and the Snarks WILL pay for them!”

When the Snark Brothers heard about Her Royal Decree, they said, “Not so fast, Your Majesty,” then they referred her to Page 1039, Section LVIXXI, Subsection 2, Paragraph 87 of the Lease She signed.

“This section,” the Snark’s Lawyer informed her, “prohibits the Lessee - that’s you - from making any improvements in the property without the express, Written Approval of the Lessor - that’s us. And we don’t grant that Approval.

"It also indemnifies Snark Brothers Enterprises against any and all Financial and/or Civil Liabilities arising from complaints or losses arising from, and I quote, ‘hostile intrusion, unwanted surveillance, over-exposure to the Elements including but not limited to: Lightning Strikes, Hail Damage, Fires, Floods, Windstorms, Blizzards, Falling Objects, and/or any and all Unanticipated Breaches of Security resulting from alleged deficiencies in the Physical Property. Shall I go on?”

In other words, the Swarm has to pay for the Desired Improvements, unless S.O.Bee, the Hive Lawyer, is able to successfully challenge the Lease in Royal Court.

The Legal Proceedings have beegun already, but I’d rather not talk about all that. It’s highly boring. Beesides, it’s the Weekend, and I’m gonna go enjoy that.


Let’s all bee careful out there.
