A Praying Mantis Ponders The End of Daylight Savings Time

Human: "It's the end of Daylight Savings Time!"

Praying Mantis: "The end of Daylight Savings Time? Does that mean I have to stop scaring the livin' daylights out of a bee?"

Human: "No, it's when we humans set the clocks forward by one hour in the spring, and then in the fall, we set the clocks back an hour."

Praying Mantis: "So if I catch a bee today at 4 p.m., it's actually 5 p.m."

Human: "Correct."

Praying Mantis: "And if I eat the bee at 4:05, it's actually 5:05 p.m."

Human: "Correct!"

Praying Mantis: "And if I catch another bee at 5:30 p.m., it's actually 6:30 p.m.?"

Human: "Correct again! Go to the head of the class!"

Praying Mantis: "Why do you humans have Daylight Savings Time?"

Human: "To get more daylight in the spring.  Did you know that New Zealand entomologist George Hudson first proposed modern Daylight Savings Time, so that after his work shift, he could get more daylight to collect insects?"

Praying Mantis: "He wanted to collect ME?"

Human: "Yes, and other insects. He won the Hector Memorial Medal in 1923 for proposing Daylight Savings Time."

Praying Mantis: "But still, why would I want to get up an hour earlier in the spring? Honey bees don't leave their colony to forage until it's around 55 degrees."

Human: "Haven't you heard? Early to bed and early to rise makes a MANTIS healthy, wealthy and wise!"

Praying Mantis: "Go away before I mistake you for a bee."
