Known to have once been a whole bee, Eric, (featured in a Monty Python sketch) is now only half of a bee. Often seen as "some freak at a menagerie", Eric ("the half-a-bee") is in fact not, merely just a "half-a-bee": A bee bisected accidentally one summer's afternoon by a one John Cleese. Who, it is known, now loves him carnally. Semi-carnally. Syril Connerly. etc.
Eric the half-a-bee has featured in a number of main-stream television programming. He not hosts his own chat-show.
