BURBANK, Calif. (AP) – A new species of bee has been named after Sheldon Cooper’s catchphrase “bazinga!” on “The Big Bang Theory.” Or perhaps he’d now like to say it “bzzz-inga.” The new species of orchid bee was discovered by a Brazilian biologist. One of the show’s executive producers says Sheldon would be honored because bees are his third-favorite flying creatures after Mothra and griffins.
