    You know that “orchid” is the latin term for “testicle”, right? I’m glad they make you happy.

    • I know that the original Greek word, from which we derive the name “orchid”, means testicle. They named it that because the root of the plant looks like a testicle. They also named structures of the brain things like amygdala and hippocampus because those structures looked like an almond and seahorse, respectively. Those crazy Greeks.

    Greek, Latin, whatever. It’s all the same right? 😉
