The fairy tale version:
What it is! What it is! Well, uh, the word on the street is that the Soul Bees came about one day when some rebel bees got together and decided they weren't gonna put up with The Man no mo'! In their case, The Man was a queen bee, but don't pay that no mind, ya dig?
These here rebel bees blew that jive hive and roamed and roamed until they somehow found their way up in the apartment of a soul brotha. You know, one of these cool cats with nice threads hanging? Well these bees started jonesin' for one of this brotha's fly shirts. While that soul brotha was sleep, they picked up his fliest shirt and flew it straight out the window.
All of a sudden, a Fairy Bee appeared and said “What in the hive are you doing? You've abandoned your queen and now you're stealing? This is not what bees are about!”
