Science Reveals Striking Similarities Between Honeybees and Juggalos
Much like human Insane Clown Posse fans, the flying insects let out a “whoop” when encountering another of their kindFebruary 21, 2017
Scientists at the Nottingham Trent University in the U.K. recently discovered striking similarities between honeybees and Juggalos, a.k.a. super fans of the Detroit-based rap group Insane Clown Posse.
The researchers determined that—much like Juggalos—bees communicate with one another by making a “whoop” sound. Whereas Juggalos generally offer up the “whoop whoop” salutation through a mouthful of Faygo, bees apparently do their whooping by thrusting their thoraxes against a honeycomb, which produces a vibrational pulse with the wings.
Noisey, Vice’s music vertical, used the recently-published scientific data to explore further similarities between the two species, eventually posing the one question on everyone’s minds: “Are bees Juggalos?”
