The Sting

I was really badly stung
By a bumble bee
Who charged me 40 quid
For a pot of honey
And a jar of marmalade
That he'd also made.

Buyer Beware

We're back in the world of bee behaviour and rather than trying to explain the poem, I'll pose three questions which may throw some light on things::

Do bees get to sell the honey they make?
Could a bee make a jar of marmalade?
What are the two meaning of the word sting?
