They had one of those at the greenhouse at UNC-Charlotte a couple of years ago. Ugh.

I thought that was just the BO of the citizens that Harry Reid was complaining about a few years ago.

I assume from the stink that Moooshell is breeding one right in the oval orifice.

Would that rotten, stinking flower represent the White House Press Corpse?

Or maybe it's one of the Corpse-men in Obama's Civilian Militia that he dreams of commanding.

“Over the last many years, this plant has proven to be the biggest attractor, not only of carrion beetles but of human beings that we’ve had,” Novy said. “It’s just got everything for a good mystery. It’s cryptic. It’s exotic. The timing is off. It’s inconsistent. It’s inconsiderate. It’s got all those great things. It’s from far away, and it smells bad, and people get interested.”

It's just like congress-critters.

A bouquet of these stinkers would be appropriate to present to B.O.

The stench of the National Socialist Democrats who are destroying our country; and I include RINOs in the bunch as well.

They had one at Phipps Conservatory here in Pittsburgh too. Smells even worse than some of the creeks where sanitary sewers still overflow after a heavy rain.
