The Buzz On The “Bang”: Lots of people in Hollywood have Emmy Awards, but how many can say they have a bee species named after their work? Jim Parsons’ Sheldon Cooper character from his hit sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” (which he’s won an Emmys and a Golden Globe for) has been honored with a bee species name. A new species of Brazilian orchid bees have been dubbed “bazinga” (official name being Euglossa bazinga), which pays homage to his catchphrase, “Bazinga!” “TBBT” executive producer Steven Molaro said in a statement, “Sheldon would be honored to know that Euglossa bazinga was inspired by him. In fact, after ‘Mothra’ and griffins, bees are his third-favorite flying creatures.”
