*internal Scooby monologue*

“Hey. Gang. Hey. Look at this.”

“No, over here. Look. Seriously.”

“See? It’s the Scooby Snacks that we need to touch to escape this virtual world. Same as all the previous levels.”

“Grab it, and we’re done here. Just grab it.”

“No, seriously, I don’t have opposable thumbs, it’s way harder for me. Could one of you just–… wait, what are you looking at?”

“Oh. A shark way off in the distance. Cool. I guess the whole gang can hear long-distance sharks underwater now.”

“You know It’s like 30 feet away, right? Just grab the Scooby Snacks and we’ll be teleported out of here.”

“I… what are you doing? You can literally just– oh, for the love of….”

“FINE! Fine. Here, I got them. Now we’ll fade away, and teleport to safety at the last possible second.”

“Sheesh. If you want some done right, you have to Scooby-Dooby-do it yourself.”

Random thought: you know how cartoons sometimes depict a romance between an anthropomorphic flower and an anthropomorphic honeybee? And the flower is a girl and the bee is a boy, because of course they are.

A couple of related facts just occurred to me:

1. In terms of plant reproduction, the bee’s role is to function as a go-between, delivering pollen between two flowers; that is, there’s a second flower involved that’s not being depicted.

2. All worker honeybees are female.

Conclusion: it would more accurately reflect the situation to depict the bees and flowers as polyamorous lesbians.
