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.

Since getting back into the dating game, I've noticed something interesting. I don't know if this is true for everybody or even most people,...

ALL NEW! I thought I knew everything. But... apparently I don't. Check out all these new fun facts I've accidentally learned over the past couple months.
