Ted and Tabatha (sic) are pretty lame names for amorphophallus, too.

Go Bucky!

Hey, man! No fair cheating!

Our amorphous phallus is way bigger than their amorphous phallus!

So apparently size does matter.

Here's our official misshapen phallus page. "Big Bucky" was over 8 feet long.

"It's not bad, Miles, and I mean that. It's peaceful, it's quiet. And food still tastes good, books are still good to read—"

"But not to write," I said quietly. "Not the labor, nope, and struggle of writing them. Or feeling the emotions that make them. That's all gone, isn't it, Mannie?"

From a book by Jack Finney about some very large and very unusual plants....

Go Badgers!

"Priapus Victrix" -- That'd be a good name for it!

Tibore said...

Yeah? Well, I got a plant that'll kick all o'your all's asses, here.

Nah, not your plants' asses... your asses... I mean it, this plant's a mean mutha...

It's not the size that matters, it's the stench. I'm sure the corpse flowers in San Francisco and UC Davis smell much worse than yours.
