Spider named after Bono

Are you a fan of the band U2? If so, then you will be thrilled to know that a recently discovered spider was named after Bono, U2's lead singer. 

Thanks to Jason Bond of Auburn University in Alabama, the man behind the identification of 33 new species of spiders including three from Joshua Tree National Park. It seems he is a fan when he named one of them after the singer. 

Other than Bono, Angelina Jolie, Cesar Chavez and Stephen Colbert are also his reasons to name the other spiders.

I wonder if it is cool to be a reason for someone to name something after you, eh?
