The Naming of POWER biscuit

An evening late in September of last year took an unexpected turn, steering me towards a scenario I hadn't anticipated, yet one that would test my resolve and wit to their limits. My day began with a tantalizing aroma that wafted through the air, a scent so irresistibly earthy and familiar that I couldn't help but follow it. The source, as I soon discovered, was a factory on the outskirts of the city, a place where the magic of peanut butter—a favorite indulgence of mine—was brought to life.

Drawn by the promise of this delectable scent, I found myself venturing closer, until a curious sight caught my eye. Outside the factory lay a brown, perfect cube of a box, its opening an invitation too enticing to ignore. Eager for a closer look, perhaps hoping for a morsel of the peanut buttery delight, I buzzed inside. It was a decision I would soon regret, as the entrance snapped shut behind me, trapping me within its cardboard confines.

The initial realization of my predicament sent me into a frenzy. My wings beat against the smooth, unyielding surfaces of the box, each thud a confounding frustration that echoed my growing despair. The box, with its claustrophobic smoothness, offered no purchase, no crevice through which I could make my escape. The air inside was thick with the stale essence of cardboard, a far cry from the sweet, peanut butter-laden atmosphere I had so eagerly sought.

As the minutes stretched into hours, the sweet smell of the factory seemed to mock me from beyond my cardboard prison. I longed for the open air. The confines of the box became not just a physical barrier but a mental one, challenging my resolve and dampening my spirits.

Yet, even in the depths of this confounding frustration, a spark of determination flickered to life within me. I refused to let this be my end, to be bested by a mere box! I began to inspect my prison with a renewed sense of purpose, searching for any flaw, that might offer a glimpse of hope.

Finally, as the evening shadows grew long, casting a dim light through a tiny crack I hadn't noticed before, my efforts bore fruit. The small opening, perhaps overlooked in my initial panic, revealed itself near the top of the box. It was a challenging ascent, each movement fraught with the risk of falling back into the depths of my cardboard cell. Yet, with a combination of ingenuity, perseverance, and indomitable will, I made my way towards this beacon of hope.

Emerging from the box into the cool embrace of the evening air, the relief that washed over me was palpable. I rested for a moment and gathered my thoughts when a spark of an audacious idea took flight. Why should my harrowing experience go unnoticed, or worse, uncelebrated? The ordeal, while trying, had imbued me with a newfound sense of purpose and, dare I say, an opportunity to further my image and likeness in a manner most unconventional.

With the factory standing silent in the twilight, a monument to the source of my recent predicament, I set about crafting a message. Drawing upon the remnants of my energy and the industrious spirit that defines me, I gathered materials from the surrounding area—bits of discarded paper, a dab of peanut butter (a fitting tribute, given the circumstances), and the ink extracted from a nearby pen, left carelessly by a factory worker.

The note, meticulously crafted, was a masterpiece of bee-sized calligraphy, each letter painstakingly drawn with a precision that only a creature of my determination could achieve. It read:

"To the Esteemed Creators of RBar Energy,

I, Biscuit, a bee of notable repute within both urban and pastoral domains, hereby express a formal declaration of interest towards a grievance experienced on your premises, which has serendipitously illuminated a path to mutual prosperity. This missive outlines a proposal, borne of my recent involuntary entrapment within a containment device (hereinafter referred to as "The Cube") located adjacently to your manufacturing site, which, while initially distressing, has kindled a vision for a collaborative venture that could redefine the parameters of your brand's market appeal.

In consideration of the foregoing circumstances, and fueled by an unquenchable thirst for power and recognition, I propose the integration of my esteemed likeness across all branding materials associated with your peanut butter products. This strategic alliance shall serve not only as recompense for my ordeal but as a testament to the resilience and adventurous spirit that your brand embodies and seeks to promote.

Pursuant to the terms herein, I demand the immediate implementation of my image in a prominent position on all packaging and promotional content, thereby ensuring a symbiotic relationship that leverages my widespread acclaim for the enhancement of your product's visibility and consumer appeal. This demand comes with the expectation of a formal partnership agreement, delineating the specifics of our joint promotional endeavors, subject to negotiation.

Should this proposal be met with anything less than enthusiastic cooperation by the Ides of March, be advised that I am prepared to mobilize a formidable coalition of my apian brethren. This response would not be limited to mere bee infestation; it would encompass a relentless campaign of stinging, chasing, soda can licking, and a persistent buzzing presence that could significantly disrupt your day-to-day operations. Let us consider this the less desirable path, one that can be easily avoided through collaborative engagement.

I anticipate your prompt and favorable response, confident in the mutual benefits our partnership will engender. Together, we can soar to new heights of success, propelled by a shared ambition for greatness.

Yours in anticipation of a nectarful collaboration,


With the note complete, I placed it conspicuously at the factory's main entrance, securing it with a small pebble to ensure its discovery come morning. As I buzzed away, the factory shrinking into the distance, I couldn't help but feel a twinge of excitement at the thought of my visage adorning the packaging of future products.

This bold move was not just about securing a place in the annals of peanut butter history; it was a signal to the world that I am a force to be reckoned with, in and out of the box. The night air felt fresher as I made my way home, the stars above seeming to wink in approval of my cunning scheme. The future, much like the peanut butter at the heart of this tale, is full of possibilities, and I am ready to explore them all.
