The orchid is named after the male genitalia. It’s botanical family name, Orchidaceae, means “testickles” in Greek and may derive from an early notion that the orchid possessed aphrodisiac qualities.

i'm glad i don't know how graham crackers are made ... ... o_o

and i don't think orchids look like male junk at all. maybe i am not thinking about it enough. though i don't plan to devote all of my thinking-hours to comparing crotch to flowers. ...

Seriously, it was more how dirty the factory was. I don't want to eat anything made in a factory ever again after that. *shudder*

You could paint them, like what's her name? Georgia O'Keefe?

Interesting. I wonder where she emigrated from?

I'd be slightly amused if it was Greece.

No not Greece. And you proved you are to be a history teacher, you used emigrated correctly. I never remember to.

She was oriental*?*. Not Asian, but from one of the Pacific islands.

Interesting. Probably just parents that wanted a pretty name. I always liked nature names. I was certain that when I had a daughter I was going to name her Fawn. Don't have girl, still could, I suppose.. spice it up, spell it Faune. That might be pretty?

Reputed aphrodisaical properties and visual similarities aside, isn't it funny how humans give each other the sexual organs of plants - presenting them to the loved, the sick, and the dead, and all that - but not those of animals (unless they're our own sexual organs, still attached, and which are usually not offered to the sick and the dead, no matter how much we love them)?
