Ryan Lochte is an enigma.
He's done one of the most prestigious things that a human being can do — he has won an Olympic gold medal. No joke, there are people that dream of representing our country in such a fab way!
But then literally everything else he's ever done is like the opposite of winning Olympic gold. He has a reality show on the way, collects "grills," and misses the point of iconic album covers. Now, we can add to that list: a hotdog is being named after him!

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is Australia's national science agency, and one of their taxonomists (bug people) has named a rare type of horse fly after Beyonce.
That's… nice. We think.
The fly has a large, golden rear end and so Beyonce immediately sprung to the researcher's mind.
"It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly’s abdomen that led me to name this fly in honour of the performer Beyonce as well as giving me the chance to demonstrate the fun side of taxonomy – the naming of species."
Sounds like so much fun! Maybe we should change careers.
Beyonce hasn't respond to the "honor" yet.
We wonder how she'll feel…
Flattered and slightly grossed out would seem an appropriate response.
