Its all squares squares squares. Sometimes circles. You have the Oval office too, of course.

Hexagons are powerful though. Maybe the bees would stop dying if we made everything hexagonal?

Bob Holness would be fucking ecstatic.

And maybe then he could realise his dream of becoming the head of the Department of Defen6e.

Speaking for myself, I couldn't give two figs if bees liked me more. We have a purely professional relationship and I think it should stay professional.

I once overheard Brian Cox say that the bees have got a seven-sided shape ready to go in case humans do get the hang of hexagons. They're ready for us!
