    Too funny! Love the last two. One name that comes to mind and I don't know how they got away with it is the cymbidium "Little Black Sambo"--talk about being politically incorrect. Am by the pool now and will try to think of others. Fun thread!

    I saw a listing a couple years ago for "One Confused Cat" and it stuck in my head. Wish there had been a picture.

    Most of the crazy orchid names seem so strange to me. I would never want a Bulbo Doggy Doo. Someone was really being silly with that one.

    And it does smell like doggy doo too. My friend has one in his greenhouse and you can find it by scent.

    I remember something about a Heinie Christ mentioned recently...I wont tell you how much fun I had with that! And I'd kinda like to have the Doggy Doo...next time someone I didnt particularly care for came to dinner, I'd certainly know what my centerpiece would be!
