Darn thing looks like a stick with flippers 9 months out of the year, but then it goes and does this . . . .

I see a butterfly with 'uge ... tracts of land, a long neck, and the head of one of the Smith Brothers.

You actually grew this? Wow. I'm so impressed. It's beautiful.

extrastorchy said...

Yeah. It's one of those orchids for morons, though. You basically just water it a lot when its blooming, then stick it in a low-light room and pretty much forget about it the rest of the year. It needs to be repotted, but I'm afraid I'll kill it.

I'd pay serious money to see it eat my dentist.

I've always believed that Shemp was a tragically underrated Stooge.

What kind of sick bastard searches for "stick with flippers," anyway?

; )
