sosia has a spectacular aura aboutsosia has a spectacular aura about
no se hizo la miel para la boca del asno/burro/cerdo
there's also a famous poem:

FABULA XI Felix Maria Samaniego

LAS MOSCAS

A un panal de rica miel
dos mil moscas acudieron,
que por golosas murieron,
presas de patas en él.
Otras dentro de un pastel
enterró su golosina.
Así, si bien se examina,
los humanos corazones
perecen en las prisiones
del vicio que los domina.

Saludos

Very interesting replies.
No sé si es igual en España pero en partes latinoamérica miel puede ser cualquier almíbar dulce. Para ser más claro, es una buena idea decir miel de abeja.
Tambien oí miel-da o miércoles dicho cuando alguien no queire ser impolito
y decir lo que quieren decir (mierda). En inglés usamos oh sugar! por el mismo efecto.
Alfonso, ojalá que Andrea no tuviera halitosis porque después volvieras a quedarte con la miel(da) en los labios.

Poli, the word (Mierda), it's a word very vulgo, in our country, but, it's used for people of low class, the honey's some very delicious, here in Mexico there're places, where can you bay the honey directly from fields where the people called (Agricultores) extract the honey directly from the bees in the same moment.

Have a good day.

Poli, you make a good point that miel basically means "syrup" to many people and it's good to specify miel de abeja.

En España no necesitas especificar miel de abeja, pero sí el tipo de flor: miel de retama, miel de azahar, etc.
