With a new year coming, it's time to turn over a new leaf here at Ultra-Gross. Why write about disgusting things all the time? So let's talk about flowers!
I always thought that the worst name for a flower was the strangleweed. That’s the nickname for a flowering vine also known as the devils-guts, witch's shoelaces, and dodder.
But I had forgotten about the turd blossom!
In Texas, a turd blossom is ANY flower that grows in a pile of poop. Usually cow poop.
Fun Fact: Turd Blossom is also the nickname that former President George W. Bush gave to his advisor, Karl Rove.
