Devoted to life stories, people, and events that are BIG OLE MESSES! ....and pop culture in general.
Well it looks like the nasty smelling Amorphophallus titanum plant is in bloom again at the U.S. Botanic Garden in D.C. I saw and smelled it a couple of years ago with my friend JM. It was N-A-S-T-Y and impressive all at the same time. Wonder why "phallus" is in it's name....Hmmmmm...???
A quote from the CNN.com article: "Now that it's in bloom, the plant has also started emitting a smell that's drawn comparisons to garbage, spoiled meat, and rotting fish."
That is one big ole 12 foot high, stank, RANK MESS.
