Bed Bath & Beyoncé or Bloodbath & Beyond (Bed Bath & Beyond nickname)

Bed Bath & Beyond is a home products retailer, formed in 1971 and headquartered in Union, New Jersey. The nickname “Bloodbath & Beyond” comes from an episode of television animation series The Simpsons that aired on November 2, 1997. “Bloodbath & Beyond Gun Shop” in this episode sold gun products (merchandise very different from Bed Bath & Beyond), but the nickname has been used anyway.

“Bed Bath & Beyoncé” (after the singer Beyoncé Knowles) is a nickname that has been cited in print since at least 2005. The band Everyone Dies in Utah released the song “Bed Bath And Beyonce” in 2011.

The Bed, Bath & Beyond nickname of “Bed, Bath & Beyond My Budget” has been cited in print since at least 2005.


Wikipedia: Bed Bath & Beyond
