I had the most amazing ramen broth the other day, flavorful and mildly hot and cleared up my sinuses, but the dish was ruined by ground beef. I know that beef is expensive, but ground beef should never be used in a liquid dish because it gets caught in people's throats. What a shame.
If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.
