From WikiPedia

In response to:
"The birds and the bees" (sometimes expanded to "the birds, the bees and the butterflies" or "the birds, the bees, the flowers, and the trees") is an idiomatic expression which refers to courtship and sex, and is usually used in reference to teaching someone, often a young child, about sex and pregnancy. The phrase is evocative of the metaphors and euphemisms often used to avoid speaking openly and technically about the subject.

According to tradition, the birds and the bees is a metaphorical story sometimes told to children in an attempt to explain the mechanics and consequence of s*xual intercourse through reference to easily observed natural events such as plant pollination.

Word sleuths William and Mary Morris hint that it may have been inspired by words like these from the poet Samuel Coleridge (1825): 'All nature seems at work ... The bees are stirring--birds are on the wing ... and I the while, the sole unbusy thing, not honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.'"

Several sources give credit to Cole Porter for coining the phrase. One of the legendary musician's more famous songs was "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love." The 1928 standard contains the lyrics:

And that's why birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Another use of this phrase comes from the work of John Burroughs, a naturalist who lived and worked in the Catskills Mountains. He wrote a small pamphlet called "Birds and Bees: Essays" in which he explained the workings of nature in a way that children could understand. However, birds and bees are dealt with in separate sections; nowhere are they mentioned together.


So what Cole Porter is saying is to do it like they do it on The Discovery Channel. But I'll be damned if I know the 'birdy style'. And definitely never like a bee. I'd hate to have it detach. Poor sods.

But how does the stock know where and when to deliver the baby? Let's hypothesize.

When fertilization occurs, a yet undiscovered sensor inside the woman sends a signal to HSBC (Human Stork Baby Central). A 'blank' is picked up from stores and assigned an ID linked to the parents. This blank is processed for 9 months were through a complex series of algorithms it is made into a boy or girl or any of the wonderful hues in between. When the 9 months are past, a delivery stork is assigned to take the baby to the parents. Off course on the way it might meet Father Xmas, The Easter Bunny and the inventor of Fine English Dining.

I would say re-reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy too many time. One of the greatest books since writing began.
