Like most rational people, I do not like to have my superstitions tampered
with ineptly. Until such time as a better explanation is offered, I suggest
the practice be continued.
- John F. Adams, "Beekeeping: The Gentle Craft", speaking of
the practice of "telling the bees," in which someone goes
to the beehives to tell the bees of the death of the
beekeeper or other nearby humans.
