Are the Hanging Naked Men Flowers Real?

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.

So much has happened since starting this blog, and somewhere along the line I became so much more cynical. Today I admit that. And I also am sharing my thoughts on how it happened, and how I'm dealing with it.

It's been a rough weekend for this single dad and his kiddo. This picture kind of says it all.

See that? Yeah. I blame THAT. For all of THIS...
