Kate Pierson, Audrey Hepburn, Marge Simpson / One Cup of Java Challenge

Today's One Cup question, heard at 8:20am on Your Morning Brew:

Kate Pierson of the B-52s is celebrating her 59th birthday today. Along with Cindy Wilson, Kate Pierson directly contributed to the look – and the name – of the B-52s. They were not named directly after the Boeing bomber aircraft of the same name. Your One Cup question this morning – in Southern slang, what else is a B-52?
Your One Cup answer: The hairstyle that Cindy and Kate wore, which was named after the aircraft, as it was thought to have a resemblance to the nose of the bomber.
Bonus Blog Trivia: As seen here, other famous beehives belong to Marge Simpson and Audrey Hepburn's character in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Perhaps the newest celebrity beehive belongs to singer Amy Winehouse, whose new album Back To Black is garnering airplay at KXCI.
