    Default Wacky Orchid names

    As I am new to this whole orchid thing I am amazed by the flowers I see here. The names are just re-donk-u-lous though, who the hell comes up with these names...and why? Out of curiosity, I wanna know some of the dumb ass names that someone cursed these gorgeous plants with that are in some of your collections, throw in a picture of the poor thing if it's in bloom.

    I always thought that Encyclia Gay Rabbit was funny but mostly because when one of them won a ribbon at our orchid society meeting they announced it as Encyclia Gay Rabbi.
