What do you do with your honeycomb (from jars)?

So, I just bought some really great honey, and it's got a piece of honeycomb in it. Usually I don't get honeycomb, and I'm kinda at a loss about what to do with it.
The chunk of honeycomb I got in my last batch was fished out and the honey was painstakingly extracted by means of a spoon and lots of squishing. There has to be a better way. I've seen quite a few recipes on the site for using honey, but nothing so far for using honeycomb or extracting the honey from it.
I read elsewhere that you can filter the honey through a cheesecloth to avoid consuming a bunch of beeswax. Is that as straightforward as it sounds?
So, mefi, what do you do? Any other cool tricks or ideas?
Thanks in advance!
