The phrase simply implying that I think my man is 'the best thing since sliced bread' or to make it plain..I think he is..'great'!
With a cheeky expression his retort was "Do bees have knees?"
to which we fell about laughing and that was that.
However the question stuck with me and I mulled it over and over with a curious mind. Today I actually found myself peering at bees whilst out in the garden hoping to perhaps spot a minute knobbly keecap on one of these busy creatures. Eventually my ever inquisitive nature led me to my laptop thinking I could find a definate answer at the end of my fingertips. No such luck my search results were somewhat conflicting. Please judge for yourself and let me know what you decide!
The case for bee knees and the case against.
