    1. Yes, yes, I agree.

      The BZZZ has an edge of panic to it that, I believe, was a natural reaction to waking up from a cold stupor only to find a daddy long legs standing over oneself.

      The more authoritative Bzzz highlights the inner strength and self confidence that a cultured Bumble would normally display.

      The shorter version, Bzz, is generally used by younger bees and can be translated loosely to “S’up” with an accompanying head nod of course.
