Repugs should stop and smell the flowers

I'm thinking of sending them some nice bouquets of these:

You might think that titan arum is just another monstrous, maladorous growth best left in its native jungles of Sumatra, where its vile-smelling flowers sustain the rare species by drawing pollinators with a hankering for rotting flesh. Hence the nickname -- corpse plant.

And I wish them all the tidings the name of the plant implies.

They had one of them stinky things in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens on exhibit. A worthy stench for them.
