"Beetle named after Rock Legend"

That was the story in the paper (internet) today.

A beetle. A bug. Some kinda new found beetle was named after a Rock Legend.

A Rock Legend.

Now if I discover some new rare kinda beetle and wanna name it after a "Rock legend" my first thought is to name the "beetle" after...you know....a Beatle. A Rock legend.

Or why even bother?

Turns out the douche that wasted half his life searching for this 'rare beetle' named it after Roy Orbison.

A rock legend.

As dumb as that is I almost half expected this idiot to name it after the 'rock legend' Quartz. Or Shale. Or some other rock legend. Clever these bug and rock guys can be.

Or something.

Here I'll give you another topic:

Roy Orbrison is neither Rock nor Legend. Discuss.

Roy is sitting here next to me, crying over your heartless remarks. Crying (over you). Cry-i-i-i-ing over you. Cry-i-i-i-ing over you.

Unlike Paul Harvey, you left out "the rest of the story."

"In 2005, Geeky Scientist Guy and his colleague Geeky Scientist Gal of the University of New Mexico discovered 65 new species of slime-mold beetle in the genus Agathidium. They named one of the beetles after Darth Vader and others for President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld."
