    Default Weird/Funny orchid hybrid names

    I'm sure some of you have run into some weird or funny orchid hybrid names. Lets see how many there actually are.

    Here's one:
    Cattleya Elephant Drops (C. Chocolate Drop x C. Pink Elephants)
    Somehow this makes me imagine a large stinky pile suddenly appearing inside my GH.

    Share any other funny or weird names that you have encountered.

    I think there's a Phal cross called Super Stupid. That's my favorite.

    Wow. That barely squeezed by the naming rules

    Here's another one:
    Dendrobium Wee Wee

    You cross that with a Den. Jaquelyn Thomas '800 Short Spiker' and you might end up with a Den. Short Wee Wee.
