Duplicate Trope (titles crowner 5/30/14): Gosh Hornet get usage counts

What's the difference between this and Everything's Worse with Bees? Both are simply about being attacked by a swarm of bees. Gosh Hornet isn't even about hornets, as one would think from the name, but is about bees, which are not related.

Also, what's up with the "Gosh" part of the name? That doesn't communicate anything.

I propose either...

  1. Making the description and examples of Gosh Hornet exclusively about hornets, and moving all the bee stuff to Everything's Worse with Bees
  2. Merging the two under a new name and include bees, hornets, wasps and other nesting/swarming flying stinging insects all in one trope.

[up] I think the second option is better...I think Gosh Hornet is supposed to be a play on Gosh Darn It to Heck! but I could bee wrong.

Second option for me.

Anyone have an idea for a name for a new merged trope?

Bees Are Bad News

When Bees Attack

Bee Swarm Attack

Flying Stinging Insects Are Really Scary And You Dont Want To Mess With Their Hives Or Else... evil grin

Attacking Insect Swarm, maybe?
[up]Hmm, that one might get misuse for ants as well

[up][up][up] Perhaps keep the name Everything's Worse with Bees?

No, that is too vague and part of a snowclone family we are trying to reduce.

Then again, this thread isn't about Everything's Worse with Bees at all. Shouldn't we agree on the merge first, then address Everything's Worse with Bees in a new thread?

No, because we don't start a thread for each trope if we are discussing merging them. It would be good to put a notification somewhere on Everything's Worse with Bees that we are discussing a merge here, though.

Attacking Insect Swarm works. It's broad enough to cover fire ants and other non-flying insect attacks.

Swarm Of Stinging
Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.
It has to remain specifically about bees/wasps/hornets, or at least general stinging insects, so Attacking Insect Swarm doesn't really work.

Something like "Bees. My God." is obvious, but hopefully we can be a bit more creative than that. Swarm of Stinging works too, but is it... "zesty" enough?

To take one of Catbert's and change it a bit, what about "Bad News Bees"?

Bee Afraid, maybe?

I need something nobody can give to me. Something nobody wants to give to me. Thus something nobody will give to me.
Do we have sufficient consensus on merging these two, or do we want a crowner just to be sure?

If it helps I can confirm that Gosh Hornet was a pun on Gosh Darn It to Heck!

back in 2009 the suggestions were Gosh Hornet, Bee Ware The Angry Noisy Cloud, Buzz Agent Of Wasp, or Horse Fly Stampede? not sure were Everything's Worse with Bees was at the time.

Apiform Attack? Territorial Swarm? meh I'll go back to lurking

So no one ever minded that hornets aren't bees? :P

Just to get things moving, I've created a page action crowner. I've only added on option, but if anyone else has ideas they can add them.

[1]

[up][up] nope.

Also, the picture for Everything's Worse with Bees would look great in Bee People once a decision is made.

[down] maybe, fodder for a different discussion at least.

[up] Actually, the image for Everything's Worse with Bees would not work on Bee People, because Bee People is not about human-like bees, but rather about a race that follows an eusocial system, which the Everything's Worse with Bees picture does not illustrate.

Hollered to hook crowner. I actually like Bee Afraid. I think I was going to suggest that before seeing (or forgetting that) it was already suggested.

I've hooked the suggested crowner; the other options should be added.

Calling to merge the two pages to create a trope with a new name that covers bees, hornets and wasps.

So, now it's time to look for a new name. I like Bee Afraid. Though the name has bees in it, I think we can all agree that it covers all of them.

Alternative Titles: Gosh Hornet

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
Previous crowner decided to merge Everythings Worse With Bees and Gosh Hornet.
