    We get a nice crop of honey off the dental floss bushes we raise. It's light colored with a slightly minty flavor (we grow the mint flavored variety of dental floss) and slow to crystalize.

    I knew it. Zappa fans raise bees...


    I might be movin' to Montana soon
    Just to raise me up a crop of Dental Floss Raisin' it up
    Waxen it down
    In a little white box
    I can sell uptown
    By myself I wouldn't
    Have no boss,
    But I'd be raisin' my lonely Dental Floss
    Raisin' my lonely Dental Floss
    Well I just might grow me some bees
    But I'd leave the sweet stuff
    For somebody else...
    but then, on the other hand
    I'd Keep the wax N' melt it down
    Pluck some Floss N' swish it aroun'
    I'd have me a crop
    An' it'd be on top

    yup, this business is even more covert than raising ginseng. I personally had to find my orginal dental floss bushes growing wild. They are notoriously impossible to transplant but the bees do work 'em.

    BTW, that dynamo hum story was pure fiction.
