GAME TIME!
Dear Sir,

I believe honey should not be eaten by anyone except bears and that you should pass a law forbidding the sale of jars of honey to non-bears. There are a number of reasons that have led me to this conclusion.


Firstly, bears are particularly fond of honey. It is a lovely sticky substance which, when spread on the paws takes a long time to lick off. Creatures without paws simply cannot enjoy honey as much. So much licking also helps to keep the fur in good condition.

In addition, no creatures other than bears have such perfect tongues. They are long enough to get into both honey jars and beehives without causing damage. The roughness of the tongue means all the honey is cleanly scraped. There is not the waste you get when children try to lick the inside of a jar.

Further more, bears need honey. No other food provides a bear with as much goodness and pleasure. We can be quiet and content for hours with just one jar, but irritable and aggressive when we have to go without.

If, however, any creature continues to be allowed to eat honey, there will not be enough for the ones who really, really need it. This will make a bear's life will very hard to bear.
How will you feel if this happens?

I am sure that, having considered these points, you will indeed prohibit the sale of honey to non-bears. I urge you to introduce a new law to take effect immediately.

Yours sincerely,
P. Bear.
