We have to hire in bee hives for pollination time, but the rest of the time those weevils are the only kind of insect in the cove. And we go to a whole lot of trouble to keep it that way.

A whole lot of trouble?

But is it not also written: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of weevil is for good mares to do nothing."?


We're all going to be insane by the end of this contest, aren't we? :applejackconfused:

9709906 .... oh Jesus Christ you're right... aaaaaaargh...

I'm the fool who didn't know that phrase and had to look it up, but definitely a good setup and alliteration.

Same. It's a bit obscure. Part of it is no one reads KJV anymore...

Was expecting something along the lines of A. Bay bay, so I guess I'm ok with this?

And because I'm awful and just can't help myself... :twilightsheepish:

"Why can't the bees stay? They don't compete for the same resources."

"The weevils keep raiding the beehives."

"What? Why?"

"Don't you know? Honey is the loot of all weevil!"

Wow. Wow. Though I am mildly proud of being able to say "A. B.'s baby Baby Bay bay" without issue.

9709906 9710068 OK, I had to issue a follow-up. Just couldn't stand to let it lie.

I don't know how I feel about adding tongue twisters to a feghoot, but it sure was fun. :twilightsmile:

honey is the route of all weevils

Okay, no, this was hilarious. XD

9738089 A twist on one of Raugos's comments. Credit where it's due.

Two weevils crept from the crumbs. "You see those weevils, Stephen?" said Jack solemnly.

"I do."

"Which would you choose?"

"There is not a scrap of difference. Arcades ambo. They are the same species of curculio, and there is nothing to choose between them."

"But suppose you had to choose?"

"Then I should choose the right-hand weevil; it has a perceptible advantage in both length and breadth."

"There I have you," cried Jack. "You are bit--you are completely dished. Don't you know that in the Service you must always choose the lesser of two weevils?"

All this talk of weevils made me think of my favorite book series and one of my favorite movies haha. Really silly and well done.

Hilarious, and the comments just make it better.

In Equestria, the Proverbs aren't a religious text, they're collected from the writings of the donkey sage, Eeyore the Tailless.
