it is (or not) funnier when you say it out loud. it doesn't work on paper really.
humour isn't really my thing.

I still don't get it. Am I being a fool?
The joke comes from the expectation that bee keepers should care about bees, this expectation is built up and we are led to assume that the bee keeper with a million bees in one hive has found some revolutionary method of keeping bees. These expectations and assumptions are then turned on their head with the punch line “Fuck em there only bees” and thus the humour is derived.
It’s all about delivery.
I have now successful sucked any humour out of that joke, I feel like a kill joy
some revolutionary method of keeping bees...
Or an enormous hive.

How did he recognise his friend if his head was an orange? Maybe he kept the same hair style....
FWIW, the first joke made me laugh.
