Discovering entomologists

That means those people who study the branch of zoology dealing with insects.

They are likely to have a mug on their desk that says:

"Floats like a Lepidoptera. Stings like a Hymenoptera"

But....after you show them these pictures and this blog, you can tell them to be a bit more specific and say it should be (using the mostly arbitrary classification levels)

“Float like a Papilionidea, sting like an Anthophila.”

and see if they will still talk to you....

Floats like a butterfly

Stings like a bee
