I Love The Smell Of Rotting Flesh In The Botanic Gardens

One of the world's rarest, largest and smelliest flowers has bloomed in Cairns in far north Queensland. This is the flower that people say smells like rotting flesh.

Blaming it on the dog is one thing, but if you've farted just admit it, don't try to blame the plant-life.

The titan arum is native to Sumatra in Indonesia and stands around three metres high.

Ah, there's nothing like a smelly titan. (There's something I hope you didn't just read out in public.)

It is now in full bloom at the Cairns Botanic Gardens. Curator David Warmington said: "This plant omits this famous odour when it's mature and it smells like a dead animal."

I wish I could get my hands on one. It would be the last time any woman moans that I never buy her flowers.
