Are the Hanging Naked Men Flowers Real?

There’s this meme going around that claims there is a flower called Hanging Naked Men. This is the photo:

Of course I laughed like a school boy. And of course I wanted to know if it was real.

So, I Google imaged it. Bad idea. DO NOT Google Image search “Hanging Naked Men.” Take my word for it.

Instead, stay here and giggle inappropriately over these images that I found.

And after some research, I have found that it is called Orchis Italica, or The Naked Man Orchid. So funny. They come in all sorts of shapes and, umm… sizes.

You have three options as a parent. Panic. Cry. Get the camera. And I'm glad these parents made the *right* choice because these pictures are hilarious.
