The geeky TV character, who counts Britain's Stephen Hawking as his online friend, has had a species of bee named after his favorite catch phrase: Bazinga! On the TV show, Cooper uses the word to signal that he's just pulled a trick on somebody else — essentially, a "gotcha" moment.
Brazilian biologist Andre Nemesio said he named a species of Brazilian orchid bee Euglossa bazinga in honor of "the clever, funny, 'nerd' character Sheldon Cooper," because the bee had tricked scientists for some time with its similarity to other species.
I can seriously see them writing this into the show... and Sheldon doing something nerdy like proclaiming himself Bee King! LOL
